Challenging San Luis Obispo & Atascadero Public Intoxication Charges

In California, it is against the law to become so intoxicated in a public place that you cannot exercise reasonable care for your safety or the safety of others. These charges may apply if you are accused of being intoxicated and interfering with or obstructing public walkways, sidewalks, streets, or other public areas. To challenge public intoxication charges, your attorney must weaken one or more element of the prosecuting attorney’s case against you.

Potential defenses against public intoxication charges may include:

  • You were not in a public place at the time of your arrest.
  • You were not intoxicated.
  • Your constitutional rights were violated in some way.
