What is a Drunk in Public Ticket?
Under California Penal Code 647(f) it is unlawful and considered disorderly conduct to be in public and so intoxicated that
- One cannot exercise care for his or her own safety or the safety of others, or
- he obstructs or prevents the free use of any street, sidewalk, or other public way.
Drunk in Public Defense
Often, people are arrested for merely being drunk while in a public place. This is not sufficient for a conviction. The people must prove more than just intoxication. Typically they attempt to show that the defendant could not care for his own safety. We get your side of the story, review the statements of the arresting officers and any other witnesses involved and, if necessary, investigate the facts with a private investigator.
Successfully defending a misdemeanor case may include the following procedures:
- Court Appearances
- DMV License Status Hearing
- Motion Hearings on discovery and evidence admissibility/suppression
- Prosecutor Negotiation
- Judge or Jury Trial
- Plea Bargaining
Some of the strategies we employ may include the following:
- Discovery Sanctions
- Subpoenaing Documents
- Trial Continuances
- Pitchess Motions
- Witness 402 Hearings
- and others…

Saved me time and money. Hopefully I don't need to use this service again but if I do I will be a happy returning customer.
These guys are great. They got my ticket dismissed with almost no involvement from me. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family
Can’t emphasize how much Scott Hullinger, Attorney at Law does for his and her customers. He is professional and top notch. I highly recommended his services.

I would recommend them to anyone...I would use them again in a minute. Hope I don't have to but you never know. They are the best and worry free. Thanks California Ticket King..... Janest
Glenn Prentice--These are the best---going a steep down hill grade on I-8 I was busted by the CHP going 84 in a 70mph zone . They were very honest with me--giving me a 50% chance of dismissal---They did cade was dismissed--Thank you very much ticket King!
without a doubt, these guys are the best... another speeding ticket dismissed.. highly recommend SD ticket king.. very cost effective solution.. don't just pay the ticket, CALL THEM
Luv these guys got my speeding case dismissed my GO TO people!!!
Amazing! San Diego Ticket King got my $500 red light ticket dismissed! Thank you!
Had two redlights turn tickets in vista about a week apart from eachother, they ended up getting both dismissed 2 thumbs up ++++ i would have ended up paying 1,000
California Ticket King went above and beyond to help me with my issues. Highly Recommended. Extremely Professional.
Great price, perfect result. Thanks so much.
I received 2 tickets in one month. One for illegal u-turn and the second for speeding on the freeway. ( bad month) I was going to fight them myself but hired SD ticket king instead. They got both dismissed! I paid $198 instead of $1100+
One of the best decisions I have made. The process was simple and they handles everything. You are fool if you don't utilize the King
When you slip in life, they're there to catch you.
These guys are absolutely the best. I got two tickets within a 4 day period. They got one reduced to an off-road violation and the other dismissed. I have told all my friends about SD Ticket King. Thank you so much!
Keep shopping, this "service" will not help u save one single dollar. U will lose time, energy, & $ with these guys. I provided dash cam footage on a special Zip drive and he didn't even use it. I could've asked the officer that wrote my ticket to dismiss it and asked my judge for leniency/a reduction, without paying $149. I still owe the full fine $401. I should've just set the 149 dollars that Scott charged me on fire. Even after years of law school, my representation put in as little effort as humanly possible. Waste of so much time, energy, & money.
Speeding ticket DISMISSED for only $99... The best hundred bucks I ever spent! Wooohoooo. Thanks again San Diego Ticket King!
Very responsible attorney, and Thanks to work on my latest 2 tickets, and both are dismissed. Recommend!
These guys are awesome. Got me out of a hefty ticket a few years back. Money well spent.
Was pulled over in a school zone on the second day of school and 45 minutes before school started. I was clocked going 42 mph in a 25mph zone. Case was dismissed. A massive ticket was prevented. Fabian is amazing. Highly recommend them to anyone. They get things done and are extremely professional. Randall S.
