Question: Can criminal DUI charges be filed at a later date for a case in Van Nuys?

Answer: It is possible for charges to be filed at a later date than the arrest, but there are time limits for filing charges. For example, the general rule is the prosecutor has 1 year to file charges from date of incident on a misdemeanor charge that would include DUI’s. That is across the board in California and includes Van Nuys. There are some exceptions to this.
