Legal Question

Asked on: 9/03/13, 1:16 am

DUI case: I was involved in a DUI accident back in around 1997. I lost control of my car and crashed. I'm curious to know how long a person should be jailed after a DUI arrest. blood test confirmed BAC. The incident was in LA County. I was taken to jail and my stay lasted 2-3 days, then shipped out to court, and then shipped back to jail for another 5-6 days(7 days total). I went back to court for trial after my 7-day imprisonment with a private lawyer.

Recently I've been hearing my jail-stay was longer than typical. Did the legal system make a mistake in jailing me this long before a trial?
