There are three main options available when you’re facing a drunk in public charge in Costa Mesa CA

  1. We can work get to the charges dropped. If the prosecution doesn’t have enough evidence to convict you, then we may work with them to convince them to drop the charges entirely. If the evidence against you was not obtained legally or correctly then we may question it. In the event we can get evidence disqualified from your case, the charges may be dropped.
  2. We can take your case to court. If the prosecution doesn’t want to drop the charges and we believe there isn’t enough evidence to convict, then we may suggest taking your case forward to court. There are many potential defense options to this charge, including proving that you were drunk but you weren’t in public, that you weren’t actually intoxicated, that you were intoxicated but only because someone spiked your drink, or that you weren’t endangering yourself or others.
  3. We can negotiate the best possible plea deal. In the event that there is a wealth of evidence against you, the best option may be to negotiate a lesser charge. This may include pursuing an informal diversion agreement in which you complete drug treatment and / or community service in exchange for the charges being dropped.
