My husband is on probation for a dui and for also driving under ovi suspension. Last week he got arrested again for "indecent exposure" (for peeing in someones yard) and didnt go to his court date. The police came to the house and got him and now he has a probation violation. He is sitting in jail and we have a 10 day old newborn. I dont have money to buy him a lawyer and when he went to court he was still to drunk to tell the judge he needed a lawyer. Is there anyway I can get him a court appointed lawyer? Hes been to rehab so many times so I honestly think jail might be the rock bottom he needs to hit. Does anybody also know what kind of sentencing he is facing? Thank you for all of your help!
It is not too late for him to ask for a court-appointed lawyer and he absolutely should do so as soon as possible....
On probation for a DUI and now got charged with Driving without a license what will happen?
My boyfriend just got his DUI taken care of with court. He got sentenced to a year probation, license suspension, fines, 90 meetings in 90 days, and the DUI hotel. He is a very bad alcoholic and last night drove to get beers without a license. He got pulled over and charged with driving without a license. His car got impounded and I had to go pick him up. Like I said before he is on probation does anybody know what might happen and how serious this is? Thank you for all of your help!

As a CA attorney I can tell you that bad things can happen in jail. Bail is usually available so call a bail bondsman...
OVI witness
I was recently charged with OVI. I had a passenger/witness who had zero drinks. He was administered a portable breath test and found to have no alcohol in him so he was able to drive my car to the station. He claims I had no slurred speech, odd look, or seemed intoxicated at all. I took a breath test at the station an hour after being pulled over, I was pulled over a few moments after leaving the bar for speeding and immediately pulled over, used my turn signal, etc.My passenger drove himself to the sports bar that night and came late, the last half hour. We were driving to get something to eat. Would he make a good/important witness possibly?
Absolutely
Drunk woman fought me outside bar, police five feet away wouldn't do anything because she is a woman.
I was outside of a downtown bar last night and the best friend of an ex approached me and, after verbally confronting me, began to attack me. I felt that the situation would escalate and I waved over the cops, who didn't budge. She took off my prescription glasses, snapped them in half. The police still didn't budge. As I pick up my glasses, she begins to push me, I push her off me, the police then come over and handcuff me, place me in the back of the car for a few moments before releasing me. While I think it's very unfair that I was being attacked and the police wouldn't do anything to help me because I am a man, I shouldn't be out of almost $200. Is there anything I can do to collect the costs of replacement glasses from her? Is small claims good? I know her name/address. Thank you.
Yes, get your witnesses together and you can file against her in small claims for damages and costs.
