Vista Court DUI cases are from all over North County

On Behalf of | Sep 6, 2013

     The Vista Court DUI cases come from arrests all over incorporated and unincorpaorated areas of North San Diego County.  The main population areas include Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, Escondido, Fallbrook, Valley Center, Carlsbad, Enciinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Leucadia, Cardiff and even Ocotillo Wells off road areas.  South of Escondido, Rancho Bernardo and Poway,  arrests go downtown San Diego, as do Del Mar and south arrests.  Camp Pendleton Cases on the base, go to downtown Federal Court for Civilians.

     Many cities, like Fallbrook, San Marcos, Leucadia, Cardiff, San Marcos, Vista have contract with San Diego County Sheriffs for law enforcement services.  Some cities like Oceanside, Escondido and Carlsbad have their own police force.  All of these law enforcement officers are state peace officers and can make arrests anywhere in the state, they primarily patrol their cities.  CHP, or California Highway Patrol also has state wide jurisdiction and primarily patrol freeways and state roads.  There are special agencies that also may have limited law enforcement jurisdictional powers like University police, Sate Park Rangers.  The San Diego Crime Lab does all the equipment testing and calibration.  All blood tests are either done by the Crime Lab or contracted out for testing.  It usually takes 3-4 weeks for blood results to be completed.

     Agencies that are not involved regularly in DUI enforcement may have issues that arise during the stop, arrest or testing.  Christoph Law Offices have dealt on a daily basis with North County agencies for over 30 years and 3000 DUIs, this experience is important in defending DUI cases.  For a free consultation, call 760-670-3885.
