San Francisco DUI Arrests
San Francisco driving under the influence (DUI) arrests are prosecuted by the San Francisco District Attorney's office or the United States Attorney's office if the arrest occurred in the Presidio National Park or other federal land. DUI arrests are made in San Francisco by the California HIghway Patrol, San Francisco Police Department, San Francisco Sheriff's Department, United States Park Police and a handful of other law enforcement agencies.
San Francisco DUI arrests ordinarily initiate two (2) cases. The first case is a criminal case, while the second case is a California Department of Motor Vehicles Administrative Per Se (APS) license suspension action. A person who has been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol has ten (10) calendar days from the date of the arrest to request a DMV Hearing. If a DMV hearing is not requested within ten (10) days of the DUI arrest, the driver's privilege to drive will be suspended for a minimum of four (4) months. The San Francisco DMV office is located at 1377 Fell Street and can be reached by calling 415-557-3722. However, it is recommended that any person who has been arrested for driving under the influence hire a qualified attorney immediately.
Most San Francisco criminal cases are handled at the San Francisco Hall of Justice located at 850 Bryant Street. If the DUI arrest occurred within the Presidio National Park, the case will be handled at the Federal Building located at 450 Golden Gate Avenue. Regardless of whether the case is being prosecuted by the San Francisco District Attorney's office or the United States Attorney's office, the case is serious and a conviction could result in a jail sentence, probation, driver's license suspension (driving privilege suspension if licensed outside of California), and fines.
