Iam 19 and receieved an mip for holding an unopened handle and was not drunk what will happen? Can I get it off my record?
It was Halloween and I was staying at a Motel Six in Carpinteria, California about 30 min away from Santa Barbara. I was walking to the car with my friends and i was holding an unopened handle, and had not been drinking at all. The car was a good 10 ft from the stairs, and then half way to the the car a cop popped out of the bushes with his flash light and told me to stay where I was because another man took off running from him. So while he chased him and brought him over i stayed standing and put the bottle on the ground like he said. He came back with the other guy who was clearly really drunk and handcuffed him on the ground. while he was writing up my ticket he then told me to stay put while he chased down another guy and brought him over. I poured the bottle out and got an mip
I'm not sure what an "unopened handle" is, but I am going to assume you were holding a beer. If you plead to a "mip,"...
How long to hear from DMV re: scheduling APS hearing?
pulled over for unclear reasons. officer said i did "well" on roadside tests but my roadside PAS was "exactly 0.08" (sounded suspicious). blood test was done > 1 hour later, have no clue what the results were (but felt 100% sober the entire time, for what its worth). its been over one month since ive requested the APS hear and have yet to hear of a time/date - is this normal? Whats the likelihood of a plea deal down to a lesser charge (if i hire an attorney)? is there any way other than the APS hearing (as it may be set aside assuming below < 0.08) to get my blood test results? thank you
Your blood tests results will become available at the arraignment date. However, I'm guessing the arraignment date has...

As a passenger in a car pulled over for DUI, my son was searched & 2 clean syringes, packaged & unopened were found. No drugs were found & syringes were bought over the counter at Walgreens. Is there a defense against the possession of drug paraphernalia charge?
Yes. Speak to a lawyer. There are a couple of issues here.

Is a California DMV Order of Suspension/Revocation of a driver's license valid if the mailing date differs from order date?
On May 23, 2017 I received a copy of an order from the DMV suspending my driver's licence "because of: a condition characterized by a lapse of consciousness or control." On May 14, 2017 I had gone to an emergency room and the doctor said I'd had a seizure. Page three of the hospital release papers falsely stated (in what looked like form text rather than a customary diagnosis) that I'd been diagnosed with epilepsy. My neurologist disputes me having epilepsy, and I do not yet know what the DMV was told by the hospital but I believe there may have been multiple inaccuracies. Furthermore my order was signed May 19, 2017 as being deposited in the mail (like a proof of service), but it doesn't actually say it was mailed that day; the envelope is stamped by USPS as mailed May 22, 2017. Would invalid proof a service be a legitimate cause to contest the order?
This can be a very daunting experience, for sure. It sounds like they're following normal patterns and, no, I do not...
How do i get my license back? I got a dui in november 2015 it is now March 2017 and i have never been convicted?
I went to pick up my nephew from a bar and got pulled over and arrested for a dui i wasn't drinking at the time but did have a few beers at dinner earlier that night. The officers took me to the hospital to get a blood test since i couldn't donthe breathalizer due to asthma acting up after that i was taken to the local jail where the officer said he would release me in two hours which he did. A minth later i went to check on the dui and nothing was on file and have not heard anything about it ever since.
It sounds like your license was suspended through a DMV administrative procedure because you failed to request a...
