There are three defense options to a drunk in public charge in Laguna Beach CA
- Have the charges dropped. This is obviously the best possible outcome but it’s not always possible. If the prosecution has a weak case, or we can show that they illegally obtained evidence, then we may be able to convince them to drop the charges or convince a judge to through the case out. We may also be able to show that the methods of obtaining evidence were not correctly followed.
- Take your case to court. If the prosecution won’t drop your case but we believe there isn’t a wealth of evidence against you, then the best option may be to take your case to court. There are many defense options we can present, such as showing that you weren’t in public, you weren’t drunk, or that you weren’t voluntarily drunk.
- Have the charges reduced. Depending on the evidence and your criminal history, we may be able to negotiate an informal diversion agreement that requires you to go to drug treatment or complete community service, but doesn’t involve charges moving forward. In other cases, we may have success having a misdemeanor reduced to a citation.
