Porn Star Arrested

The adult film star Jenna Jameson allegedly crashed into a light pole in the Orange County city of Westminster recently. When officers arrived, she was showing signs of intoxication, so police conducted a field sobriety test, which she failed. Her blood alcohol content (BAC) was above 0.08, and she was arrested for driving under the influence.

While criminal law is clear on the definition of DUI, it is not clear on what you should do if you are stopped for DUI. Jenna Jameson’s first mistake was in taking the field sobriety tests. Did you know there are no consequences to refusing these tests? You should exercise that right.

You must, however, take a blood or breath test if requested. The law indicates the consequences for refusing a breath or blood test are severe and include an automatic DMV suspension of your driving privileges for one year and 48 hours in jail for a first-time refusal.

There are many other factors to consider when stopped for a DUI that will make your case easier for a criminal defense attorney to fight. For more information, please reference our earlier blog on “The Dos and Don’ts of a DUI Stop.” If you are arrested for a DUI, your best choice is to call Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney Staycie R. Sena at (949) 477-8088. She will ensure that your legal rights are preserved from the start. Please visit www.irvinecriminallawyer.com for more information.
