    Cotati City Council members voted 4 to 1 at this week's meeting to adopt a resolution that will allow the Cotati Police Department to take over Sonoma State University Police dispatch calls, which includes managing 911 calls from the university as well as after-hour business phone calls, an agreement that will allow more SSUPD officers to spend time in the field and focus more on student and visitor safety.

    After the Oct. 29 arrest of two teenage vandals who spray painted a sound barrier wall in Cotati, Cotati city manager and chief of police say while graffiti isn't too common, City Manager Damien O'Bid and one Sonoma State University art professor are open to the idea of eventually having a common space for street artists to beautify walls with their work instead of seeing cases of graffiti. The two Sonoma State students, Marco Polanco-Gruszynski and Ethan Zogg, were arrested for felony graffiti vandalism after the Cotati Police Department received a tip from a concerned Maple Avenue resident about vandalism taking place near Barden Court, according to a Cotati Police Department press release.

Will California count a dui in Hawaii as multiple offense?
I have to sign up for a first offender program in California but I had 2 in California 10 years prior.
Probably. Get your driving history from CA DMV to learn how many convictions are listed. https://www.dmv.ca.gov/...
Can the DMV in California override a 1st offender conviction in Hawaii 13 years ago?
I got a dui while I was still a resident of Hawaii, 13 years ago. I was moving to Florida the next day. It was bad, I blew a 3.0, ? I had a lawyer go to court for me, ( James Biven retired or deceased ) guess I plead guilty and was supposed to complete a 1st offender program. I went to the courthouse in Florida and they didn't know what to do with my situation, the DMV gave a license and renewed it for over 10 years, it is still valid...I moved back to California 2 years ago and recently went to the DMV to get a California license (my Florida picture was great) I was genuinely a little surprised when she said NO! I have taken the steps to resolve this problem but am am frightened that when I sign up for class in California they will bring up my 2 prior DUIs many years ago. My life is so different now, I don't drink and I just need to get this resolved. I was surprised because I was in Hawaii in 2011 and wanted to make sure it was taken care of , but ex boyfriend convinced me his lawyer took care of it.... Thank you! The 2 DUIs in California were 10 years prior to the Hawaii conviction.
What a tangled mess. What do you mean by "override" a first offender conviction in Hawaii? Do you mean make it a...
What can I do to resolve this issue as soon as possible ? Would it be cheaper and quicker to go to Hawaii and do it?
I received a dui in Hawaii 13 years ago. I was still a resident but was moving to Florida the next day. It was bad, I blew really high, 3.0. I had a lawyer go to court and I was sentenced to 1st offender program. Florida gave me a license, it's still valid. I moved to California 2 years ago and finally went to the DMV to switch my license and of course no way. I was in Hawaii in 2011 and my ex boyfriend told me he had seen his lawyer and it was cleared up. Obviously he lied. Please help. Thank you!
It's still not clear what's plaguing your ability to be licensed in CA. What did the DMV identify as the problem?...

Of course you need a lawyer for your situation. You know that. Hire an experienced DWI attorney now.
