How to get CA DL back if doing Out of State DUI Class
My sister got a DUI near Chico. She has since moved out of state, and needs to do the alcohol class. But she is concerned that the CA DMV won't accept an out of state DUI class, and she needs to get a license in NJ, but is worried with the CA license suspended, she won't be able to. Is there a way to satisfy the CA DMV to get her license back without having to come back to CA for the DUI classes? Thank you.
Unfortunately, the California DMV does not except out-of-state DUI classes. She will have to call mandatory actions, at...
What are we looking at with a drunk in public and domestic battery charge?
Last month, my boyfriend and I celebrated the weekend with a bit too much alcohol. We got into an argument that was escalated due to our intoxication and made some bad impulsive decisions. He broke my phone, I popped his bike tire. The cops showed up to our apartment and took him for "public intoxication" even though we were outside our apartment door talking to them. They also charged him with domestic battery because he had held me back when I was upset about my broken phone. My arms were a bit red (not even bruised) and they asked why and he told them he'd held me. We're been together for 4 years and have never had any problems. He's never laid a hand on me and I'm worried about the domestic battery charge as it can lead up to 6 months jail time or $2,000 fine. We can pay the fine, but the jail time is terrifying to us. Is there a way to avoid jail by choosing t he fine or is that up to the judge? Also, can me saying that he's never hurt me hold any water? It was just the cops decision. A bad night that's become a month long nightmare and I'm so in the dark because I'm not the one in the hot seat.
If convicted, a first offense domestic battery usually carries probation with a requirement for anger management...
What do I need to do for the CA BRN to allow me to take the NCLEX with a 5 year old DUI on my record?
When I was 18 I was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI. This is my first and only conviction and occurred 5 years ago. I'm starting an RN program very soon but have been hearing a lot of unhappy nursing graduates complain that the CA BRN has denied them to take the NCLEX. I've read that there are ways to appeal this but I'm not sure what is needed to actually do this. I've also been told that in CA you will always be denied if you have a DUI on your record. I would like to start preparing now as I've heard this process takes time and is very stressful. Would expungement help and if so how do I go about it?
I don't believe merely expunging it will be enough. Call attorney Christine McCall. This type of case is all she does.
If you are drunk when you are arrested, does what you tell the officer stand in court?
I was arrested on March 6th, for DUI and marajuana related charges. I don't remember exactly what I told the officer. I am wondering if what I told him will be held against me in court because I was under the influence of alcohol. Thank you
If only that worked. Any statements you made are likely admissible. The exception would be if you were interrogated...
Can I do anything legally about a frat next door that's terrorizing my 68 year old mother and I?
A frat moved in roughly a year ago. The dogs they owned kept lunging and snapping at me and I asked them politely to follow the leash law. They didn't and that's when it started getting bad. The young men have already made a verbal threat to "drop me", I called Chico pd and made a record of the incident. The harassment has become intense...they come onto our property, scream at us from their porches, spitting at our windows, screaming vulgarity's and spiting at our windows. The list goes on. Is there anything legally that I can do about this? Please help. My 68 year old mother and I can't afford to move so were kinda stuck for awhile. Thank you.
Yes. A civil restraining order can be filed. You should call Robert Marshall for a consultation. In my opinion he is...
