How can I go about getting an extension on the time allotted for completing my first offender DUI class and victim impact panel?
I took a plea deal for a felony DUI, and part of the requirements of the deal was to enroll in a first offender DUI program and complete a victim impact panel by 12/5/16. Due to a lack of funds and instability in my living situation, I have been unable to sign up for either. I now have a stable living situation and the funding to enroll in the class and panel, but the earliest enrollment date and victim impact panel in my county is after the due date. How do I go about requesting an extension?
You should have your attorney calendar your case with the judge and make the request at that time. You could also...
I'm getting sued in relation to an auto accident/DUI. What kind of lawyer should I retain?
I caused an auto accident due to a DUI over a year ago. I'm now being sued by the other party in the accident.

Can I fight back after dismissed DUI case?
Hi, was charged with a 2nd DUI in California on my driveway, luckily dash camera of near parked car recorded everything. Went with a lawyer, eventually case has been dismissed due to insufficient evidence. (i took a cab home and never drove as recorded on the video) Question, do I have a chance to fight back with Roseville PD to get compensation? it cost me money, stress and many more unpleasant feelings.
Sorry, but no. Being found not guilty of a criminal charge is not the same as being factually innocent, it just means...
What can I do to get them to recognize that the exemption time has passed?
Dmv is saying that time never started on my iid exemption because I did not get sr22 and pay the 125 re-issuance fee. It has been three years since my dui and I filed the exemption paperwork before the 30 day limit back in 2013. AB 91 under 13 is the requirements in which I followed does not state anything about reinstating a license begins the exemption only that I had to file the exemption paperwork in which I did and was approved in 2013. They are stating that the approval paperwork they sent me states that I had to pay fee but this was after I was approved. The paperwork for the exemption did not state anywhere on it that the time would not start till after dmv fee was paid to get a reissued drivers license when I did not own a vehicle. Seems like I was not exempt unless dmv and the insurance got money.
Best of luck with this. The DMV is a monster and very difficult to deal with.
Is this a winnable case? Should I see if I can still take a plea? Should I hire a private lawyer?
I was arrested for DUI at my home 1 hour after an incident at my mothers home. At 8:07 my drunken step father called 911 stating that I came over drunk to pick a fight, "I beat him with rebar, he left, I wanted him arrested". This is from the 911 call log. In short I came over to do laundry and an argument started as I was leaving he struck me several times with rebar. I drove home hurt and bloody. I started drinking heavily when I got home the police showed up 78 minutes later and arrested me at my home. I was breathalyzed at the jail for the first time over 2 hours later from the original 911 call. Blew a .36 and the .39 after. The jail nurse instructed the officer to take me to the ER for my head and neck injuries from my stepfather. I am now scheduled for trial in 2 months for DUI and DUI with high BAC. I have been reassigned 3 different public defenders leading up to trial. The first 2 PDs said my case is winnable after talking to witnesses. The current one advises against trial and seemed upset whenI chose a trial.
You have a lawyer. Speak with your lawyer or put some skin in the game and retain private counsel. Sounds like a...
