Santa Monica BUI Attorney

Information about BUI Charges

Many who live in Santa Monica take advantage of the close proximity of the ocean by going boating.  Unfortunately, a large number of these people do not know that, just as in a car, truck, or SUV, boating while under the influence of alcohol is illegal.  A person who is found piloting a boat with a blood alcohol level (BAC) of .08% or more, or who has been deemed by a law enforcement officer to be significantly mentally impaired by drugs or alcohol, can be arrested and possibly charged with BUI.  The penalties levied for BUI can be very similar to those for DUI, and include fines, probation, community service, mandatory enrollment in an alcohol treatment program, and jail or state prison. 

If you are facing charges for BUI, it is strongly urged that you consult with a Santa Monica DUI attorney right away. Because of the inherent subjectivity involved in assessing whether or not one is "impaired" in their ability to pilot a boat, an attorney may be able to effectively fight your charges in court, and get them reduced or dismissed outright.
