Being accused of having driven while drunk can be a very serious allegation
for an individual to face. Such an accusation can lead to a person facing
criminal charges. If a person is convicted of
DUI charges, he or she can be given serious criminal punishments.
Recently, a sentence was issued in a DUI case that involved a celebrity.
The celebrity in question is singer and New Edition member Bobby Brown.
The case was from California.
It was alleged that, last October, Brown drove a motor vehicle while under
the influence of alcohol.
Charges of DUI and driving with a suspended license were brought against
Brown in connection to the above-mentioned incident.
On Tuesday, Brown submitted a plea of no contest in relation to these charges.
He was then given his sentence in this case. He was given a jail sentence
of 55 days. He also will serve four years of probation after his jail
sentence and will be required to go through an 18-month alcohol program.
According to the article on UPI's website which reported this story,
this was Brown's third DUI conviction.
While this case was from California, it illustrates a point that is worth
noting in other states, including Arizona. This point is that being accused
of having driven while drunk can lead to a person facing serious consequences.
Thus, if a person is facing allegations of having driven while under the
influence of alcohol, he or she may wish to consider seeking advice from
a DUI defense attorney.
