I just got a DUI, first offense, what are the chances of getting it dismissed or reduced?
I was heading to my friends for the night, pulled into her neighborhood, I seen a Sheriff Deputy parked on the curb, proceed to drive past him, then I stop once I seen yellow police tape. The Deputy comes to my window asks where I'm heading to, I tell him my girls house, she lives down the next street. He tells me this is an active crime seen for there was a shooting. He asked me for my license then if I had anything to drink, I tell him I had a few. He tells me to shut my car off and wait till CHP gets here. CHP shows up, have me perform FST, then a breathalyzer. First time blowing into the machine, it beeped too soon. The Officer even said so. After the second time, they arrested me. On the report they gave me it said they became suspicious of my watery eyes, I have allergies and my eyes were bugging me all night. Slurred speech. I was good though because I drove some friends home and I was talking to them fine. I get really nervous and I start to studder. I blew .12 and I weigh about 360.
To be honest, it's unlikely the case will be dismissed. Reduction is also unlikely. But, without seeing the actual...
I have a felony prior DUI that was a wobbler 9 years ago I now have a misdemeanor DUI charge can I have the felony prior dropped
I don't know exactly how I'm going to be charged
It's too late now. Had the felony been reduced to a misdemeanor (PC17b) the new DUI couldn't be upgraded to a felony.
Is this legal since it was a court order in Family Court and what are my options?
I was pulled over with my son in the car. I had a few beers at dinner and was charged with a DUI and a misdemeanor charge of willful cruelty to a child. CPS was notified. I have 70 percent custody of my son but a social worker visited his mothers home and now she won't let me see him. She was told my CPS that I'm a danger to her and to my child and that she shouldn't let me see him.
Wow that is most unfortunate. The best interest and safety of the child is always the courts concern. Can you jump...
How do I file a lawsuit
I was charged with an dui but I was not convicted neither the criminal or by the dmv safety, but the local office charged me 50 to renew my dl, in which they say it has expired and now my renewal is 30 because everything is said and done. How do I file a lawsuit for discrimination because no one had any idea how to handle my situation and the dmv already put me in a particular slot as though I was already guilty.
Curious whom you wish to sue......?
What can I provide to the Canadian border to ensure passage even though I have a dismissed DUI w/ GBI enhancement?
I was recently dismissed (11/13/2015] of a felony DUI w/ GBI enhancement in California, committed in November 2012. My wife and I are planning on moving to her home state of Alaska come late spring. From what I have been reading, DUI's are considered very serious by the Canadian border, especially felonies, but that it becomes much easier if the charges are dismissed. My question is: What can I do to have successful passage through Canada? I have just requested court transcripts and any other supporting documents from my successful court hearing on 11/13/2015. Are there any border forms or correspondence I can proceed with before driving to the border? Or any other advice? Thanks.
