3rd dui but i travel internationally and am gone months on end. Can a lawyer push my court dates back until its dismissed?
Firefighter during the summer and I work abroad during off-season. I NEED to keep my license. I received a 3rd DUI within 10 years. I blew a .09 BAC I have already scheduled a DMV hearing. When I return to CA I will go into Fire season and will most-likely be unavailable for court. How long can I keep my case in court? Years? Months?
Cases can linger in court for a year or more. Sort of depends on the particular court and its culture. The DMV...
I was sentenced to a DUI, 1st Offender (M), with a BAC over .20. I was sentenced to 18 month DUI class vs 9 month for 1st time..
Full disclosure: I did have a Dui over 15 years ago, being it was over 10 years and out of state, it's a 1st time CA dui. I did retain a lawyer whom kept me out of jail time, no interlock, and a 4th month suspension(restricted eligible. He believes he can get dui classes down to 9 months. Two questions: 1) is it common for judge to issue 18month dui class in this scenario, or what are some good options to get dui classes greatly reduced? 2) while I am eligible to get my CA license back in January, it is contingent on 'completion' of my dui classes. Will DMV continue to extend my restricted license or are their other ways to tackle getting my permanent license back in the absence of DUI class 'certificate of completion'? Thank you for any guidance, advice, or alternate perspective.

How serious could "Rape of Intoxicated person" and "Oral Copulation of Intoxicated Person" Charges be in my case.
Im a 22yr. Old Male. Never been in trouble. Work 2 jobs. Ive never gotten out of control when consuming alcohol. I control it very well. My Roomates and I had several friends over on a friday night. This girl and I hit it off right away, and had a good time. One thing led to another and we ended up having sex. She never said stop or no, nor did I force anything upon her. The following morning she seemed upset and didnt say much and left my house. She decided 6 days later to file those charges on me and I get an Invitation to County Jail to speak to the detective, And right away takes me into custody. Completely clueless on my first step towards fighting this. Where to start to be exact! Help.
