Alex Trujillo had a 0.11 blood alcohol level and was also under the influence of prescription drugs when his vehicle swerved on to the sidewalk striking a woman who was riding her bike and killing her. The incident occurred in 2008 in the City of Seal Beach located in Orange County. Mr. Trujillo will be charged with murder for this incident and face 15 years to life because he had been previously convicted of a DUI in 2002. A recent change in the law resulting from the case People v. Watson, allows Defendants to be charged with 2nd degree murder if they had a previous Drunk Driving conviction and should therefore know of the risks of driving drunk. Mr. Trujillo’s trial begins Wednesday. See, Vehicle Code Sections 23152 (a), (b); 23153(a), (b).
