My son was recently arrested for DUI and bodily injury after car accident. He is 22 and have no record. The state is charging him with a felony. Is that the law in California or are they being very hard on him. Is there any lesser charge they can charge him with or is that what he is going to have to defend from. As of now he doesn't have private attorney, he has a public defender. Thanks for any information you can provide me with.
