Ketamine DUI is treated similarly to other forms of DUID or DUI cases in court. Ketamine is a prescription medicine, but it’s often used casually or recreationally as a club drug. If you’re caught under the influence while driving, and without a prescription, a conviction under California Vehicle Code 23152 is imminent. Even with a prescription, defendants can still be convicted due to the impairment caused by Ketamine while driving.

Ketamine DUI is usually filed as a misdemeanor, and those found guilty can face:

  • A maximum of six months in jail
  • Monetary fines of a minimum of $390
  • Probation of 3-5 years
  • Driver’s license suspension for up to six months
  • California DUI school for a minimum of three months

Felony Charges apply for:

  • 4th time Ketamine DUI offenders
  • Defendants with a prior felony DUI offense

Quick Facts On Ketamine

  • Aliases for Ketamine include Vitamin K, K or Special K
  • It is a controlled substance
  • The drug was established in 1962, and is used medically as a anesthetic
  • Ketamine was often used for soldiers’ treatment during the Vietnam War
  • The drug has psychedelic effects on adults, which produce a dazed state of mind
  • It’s a popular date rape drug

There are several other drugs that can result in a DUI, including Codeine, Heroin, Crystal Meth, and Ambien. Those on prescription medications are especially susceptible and rarely know that they are not following the law.

The following is a fictional story of a Ketamine DUI arrest that could be used as an example:

Rachel and her friends are at the beach and decide to take Ketamine. They were planning to be there for several hours, but two hours after Rachel took her Ketamine, her father called her and told her to come home immediately as there has been an emergency. Rachel gets in her car and tries to drive 15 miles to her home, but is quickly pulled over for driving under the influence. The police officer does not get a reading on his breathalyzer, but he notes several signs of intoxication. He arrests her for DUI and later draws blood to be sent to a lab and analyzed.

If you are facing Ketamine DUI charges in California, contact our DUI attorneys at 888-250-2865 and a skilled attorney will provide you or your loved one with a free DUI case evaluation. Once you know what your options are, you may be able to stop stressing about your criminal proceedings and get back to focusing on your personal life.

    "They are such a great team to work with."
    I was new in the US and I didn’t know anything or what to do from Day 1 from presenting my case to Randy. He reassured me that he would help me and that I shouldn’t worry. He was very supportive, responsive to every question no matter how silly it was he was very patient and comforting. He knew exactly how to address the problem and had a plan of action and after a long 2 years, he won my case I appreciate every effort Randy & Chris have done. They are such a great team to work with and I would recommend him in a heartbeat
    "Handled my case in record time with the best possible outcome."
    Randy is awesome! I called so many attorneys and in all honesty he is such an incredible person. All of his office staff is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He really cares about the welfare of his clients and takes time to discuss your needs in person. I highly recommend him. He handled my case in record time with the best possible outcome.
    "He went above and beyond!"
    Mr. Collins is highly recommended. He really takes the time to listen and answer all your questions. He went above and beyond on helping me out with an issue that was never my fault.
    "Caring and Genuine Attorney"
    I called the office and right off the bat, I was super impressed at how much help I was receiving without even meeting in person. Chris (the guy who answered my call) is extremely nice and he explains everything so well. He told me how he used to work at the courts for many years (that gave me relief that he knew what he was talking about). Randy (the attorney) is delightful as well and put my worries to rest with his expertise and knowledge. You can tell by his demeanor and how passionate he speaks, that he is genuine and he cares about his clients. This office handles everything from DUI cases to just about anything criminal related.
