Underage dui and of age dui
I received a DWI in Colorado when I was 18, everything was taken care of and probation completed. I am now 21 and have received a DUI in California. I haven't went to court yet. I was wondering if they will charge this as a first offense or second?
If you were 18 at the time of the Colorado incident this was an adult DUI and the CA DUI will be your second. If you...
What is an olmadollar plea? I don't know if I spelled it right. I was watching an attorney in court yesterday.
He had a client plead no contest to VC 23152(b) and I think he requested a hearing for the VC 23152(a) and the judge asked the prosecutor if she had evidence to present and she said no. Then the judge said that he found the client not guilty. Someone told me it helps people save their license. I don't get it.
A helmandollar plea is a plea that includes a factual finding of innocence on the 23152(b) charge. Hopefully, you...
Is there any lawyer who can handle my 4th Dui?

Is there a way to reduce the amount of time an Ignition Interlock Device is required or petition for removal in CA?
My issue is I got my second DUI in 2010. Then while I had a restricted to/from license I got a charged with driving outside of work. About 6mo to a year later I went to the DMV to renew my expiring license and they told me I was now required to have an ignition interlock device for 24months. I did some research and saw its common for a second offense DUI to only have the IID for 12 months. I attempted to call the DMV Mandatory Actions unit for a week and could never get in contact with anyone to question the term of my IID restriction. I am transitioning to a new career which requires an unrestricted drivers license so my question is if there is any way to fight the length of my IID restriction or get it removed all together.
The DMV controls all matters regarding your license. You blew it when you drove outside the terms of your restricted...
Convicted of a wet and reckless, then got arrested for another dui pending the trial. The wet and reckless, and the probation
Probation and conviction of wet in reckless, received a second dui before the probation and wet in reckless conviction was admitted. So, could I get another wet and reckless with a good lawyer since I hadn't been convicted or on probation for the second mess up? What am I looking at.
Who knows? Anything is possible, but at the rate you're accumulating DUI arrests, it's very unlikely you'll get...
