Generally, people think that just because they are arrested for DUI in Fresno, Madera, Kings and Tulare Counties, they will be convicted. This is absolutely not so! According to the California Annual DUI Report, statistics show that in California, of the 180,212 DUI arrests in 2010, only 73.1% get convicted of DUI. Specifically, in the Central Valley,
Fresno County had a 61.3% DUI conviction rate.
Madera County had a 66.8% DUI conviction rate.
Kings County had a 74.7% DUI conviction rate.
Tulare County had a 77.0% DUI conviction rate
This proves one point. Just because you get arrested, doesn't mean you will be convicted. Don't give up. Fight your case. There is hope and you may not be the one that has to suffer the consequences of a DUI conviction.
