Who doesn’t love a good “Bigfoot” story in California? People are still fascinated with the idea of a man-creature hybrid wandering about the Northern Forests. You’d think with the invention of smartphones and drones we’d have some great footage by now. Sure, it’s fun to imagine, but in reality, the sources of the stories are normally folks who like to tell “tall tales.” No real substantial evidence is available.
What does this have to do with our auto defense attorneys? Like Big Foot, smog technicians consider a criminal accusation from the Bureau of Automotive Repair pretty rare. Sure, a shop can get cited for a multitude of small violations, but those can be fought in court and easily won (with a good defense lawyer of course). Most auto shop owners might have heard stories, but brush off the idea that they’ll ever go to court for criminal behavior. Unfortunately, fighting a Bureau of Automotive Repair criminal lawyer in court is more common than people believe.

Maybe you’ve heard the stories or read about them on chat pages. A professional, well-respected smog tech finds out the DA’s office is taking them to court for illegal smog checks.

A STAR certified technician can lose everything in the blink of an eye.
How did this happen? Maybe the Bureau of Automotive Repair criminal lawyer offered a tall tale about “clean piping.” Maybe the smog tech thought the prosecution’s argument came out of nowhere and he didn’t prepare.
