Can hospitals charge you for DUI blood test? The police officer took me to an emergency room for blood test because they
couldn't get a reading on the breathizer. Now I am billed over $600 from the hospital. Is this legal?
Depends. When you say police "couldn't get a reading" on the Breathalyzer I'm very skeptical. Often police try and...
Does California DMV always respond and punish a California driver if he is found guilty of a DUI in another state?
I'm aware of the 45 state compact in regards to states sharing info...does Cal always respond? And if I'm convicted of a DUI (even with a lawyer representing me out of state), are there things that can be done here that can soften the rath of the Cal DMV?
I cannot safely say that California always picks-up and sanctions those who are found guilty in another state. But it...
Can I be charged for DUI hit and run based on witness account?
I was not drinking but looked at my phone and scraped (no dent, just paint loss) the car in front of me as I was changing lanes to the right. I don't know what this looked like to the witness who called it in, but I am concerned that I may have appeared impaired to the witness. Making matters worse is that as I pulled to the right I merged onto a separate freeway before pulling over. I just freaked out once I made contact with the car and I didn't stop immediately, assuming they would follow me which they did not. Since the car I hit did not follow me, I did not report the accident but a witness clearly did as my parents received a letter in the mail about an accident involving a car registered to my father. I am terrified that they will try to pin a DUI on me even though I was not drunk.

If the DA or court is planning on determining eligibility for a drug diversion program, am I considered ineligible due to prior criminal history? I'm otherwise a studious college student without even a speeding ticket since my DUI at age 22.
The DUI does count as prior criminal record, but may not prevent you from being eligible for diversion. The fact that...
How many days of jail time do you receive if you opt to not pay DUI fines once it has resulted in a warrant??
My boyfriend was arrested in Pasadena for a DUI warrant. He had been paying the scheduled payments but couldn't afford it anymore and just stopped. Now that he has been arrested, he is opting to do the jail time to avoid having to pay the fines, since this became a DUI warrant, how many days of jail time would they possibly give him??
Well the judge can impose additional time for the probation violation as well. The typical sentence to pay off all the...

Will DUI affect my citizenship?
I have lived in US for 22 years. I want to apply for the US citizenship. However, 15 years ago, I caused traffic accident and there was no injury; besides, there was a small amount of drug found in my car. I joined the program for the first offender. In my case, will DUI affect my citizenship application?
Assuming you were only convicted of a DUI and no other charges relating to drugs, a DUI from 15yrs ago should not...
