Arrested for a DUI and blew an exact .08 upon arrest.
I got arrested for a DUI and blew an exact .08 upon arrest on a hand held breathalyzer. I was later given a blood test about 2 hours later. Is there any way the results of blood test could help me if so how? Also, I was pulled over right as I got home not sure if that matters. I have no priors and no criminal history, how does my case look?

Can I still reduce my felony DUI to a misdemeanor if I had probation violations?
I got a felony DUI back in 2002, with no injuries or accident. I was sentenced to 5 years of felony probation. While on probation, I had a couple of violations and my probation was revoked and then reinstated to a probation called drug court, which I successfully completed in 2007. Since then, I have had no contact with law-enforcement and am a law-abiding citizen.
Legally speaking, yes you can, however, the judge will likely use the probation violations as a reason to deny the...
The DA's office hasn't filed DUI on me, but I know I'm going to miss arraignment date. will courts postpone my arraignment?
I was sleeping in my running car, and was arrested for driving under the influence. the DA's office has not yet filed a case against me, and I've been trying to get my courtdate pushed forward or postponed. Seems I can't talk with the court clerk until the DA's office files something. I've been in constant contact with the DA's office, basically begging them to file so I can then attempt to change this arraignment date. Is this something the courts will generally consider- postponing an arraignment? Might the DA's office not file until the day of my arraignment, therefore considering my case a failure to appear because of my absence?? any info would be helpful here, thank you!!
What you might do is hire an attorney to make this appearance for you. Assuming a misdemeanor is eventually filed, the...

Is an SR22 insurance still needed after a case is dismissed in California?
Husband was arrested for a dui, and refused to take the test because he felt he was being harrassed and treated unfairly. His case was dismissed after several months. We did get SR22 for him, before is was dismissed so he could get his license again. Now purchasing new insurance and not sure if SR22 is still needed.
If his case was dismissed he likely had a lawyer, that lawyer should know the answer to this question as there are some...
