This is the California Judges DUI Benchguide for 2009. This manual will give you the Judge’s perspective of your case. Judge’s Benchguides are something that every judge gets when they go to a new courtroom that focuses on a new area of the law. There are Benchguides for family law, felony criminal and domestic violence, to name only a few. The Benchguide does not tell the judge how he or she should sentence you–the local County Court judges (as a group) set the standards for that–but it does give you an excellent overview of the process, and in as much depth as you want. Another must-read book.
