Is an SR-22 still required if the vehicle my daughter drives is fully insured.
I'm unclear on the SR-22 requirement. My 19 year old daughter has a recent misdemeanor DUI conviction. She is required to have an SR-22 on file for three years. The vehicle she now drives is owned by me, registered to me, and fully insured by me. Is she still required to pay to have an SR-22 on file? I don't understand why she would still need an SR-22 if there is proof the vehicle she is driving is insured.
Yes, your daughter will need an SR-22 certificate from your insurance company. The SR-22 is a special arrangement...
Will or Can the court find out of the 1st DUI when the 2nd DUI was charged as a first time offense in a different city in CA ?
- I have an out of state ( not CA ) Drivers License and out of country citizen ( temp employment in US ) . - I have a 1st DUI from CA about 2 yrs . ago . I am on 3 yr probation . - I got a second DUI ( . 07 bac ) recently in another city in CA and was ticketed / charged . They did not mention the first case / incident while booking and so i did not mention it . - The officer told me at the end that there is a very , very low chance the judge will send it to court since the bac was < . 08 AND i am an out of state licensed driver and out of country citizen . - Will the courts find out about the first incident if i do the case in another city ? - What are my chances that the courts are not going to bother with my case , as the officer said ?
Yes they will find out. They can actually find out nationwide in a matter of a few seconds. A 0.07 is still within the...
CA DMV suspension is lifted, but still not convicted. What should I do now?
I was charged with my first DUI in November 2011. My license was suspended by the DMV, and the 4 month suspension ended last week. However, the court process has been extremely slow. I finally had my arraignment last month, where I requested a public defender, and my next court date is in 2 weeks. I still haven't taken any DUI classes. What should I do regarding my license? My DMV suspension form says I need to complete a DUI program before my license is returned. But I don't want to take any classes yet because I'm waiting to see my formal sentence (I think I have a chance of getting a wet reckless instead, meaning less classes). Is it possible that I just get my full license back from the DMV? Or can I still only apply for a restricted license?
The DMV is not correct... but you are. You've already served your four month suspension and are entitled to a full...
I have a hearing in court regarding probation violation for a misdemeanor charge of DUI, what should I expect?
About a month ago some serious changes that were outside of my control took place with my work particularly around scheduling. I had been told I could have up to 7 absences from the classes, but was not informed I could have no more than 3 in a row. I was suspended from the program. I filed the paperwork requested by the people running the DUI class/program, but couldn't get a scheduled date that worked with my work schedule at all for whatever reason. I attempted to contact my probation officer 3 times a week and have only gotten voicemails and no return calls. Will I be arrested? Will I be given time to correct these issues and maybe be assigned to a new program for my classes?
Speak to your lawyer about how the judge on your case in particular handles such problems. Some judges might give you...
Can I get a "retro-active" DUI at .07 in California? I'm colorblind and stopped at a light I thought was red.
The light turned out to be just a streetlamp. The STOP sign was blocked by an illegally parked truck. I wasn't arrested and passed the physical field sobriety test. However my license was taken and I have been asked to submit to a "Priority Re-examination". I am colorblind, have poor vision, and am on several medications. I understand my license could be revoked for these reasons, but could a DUI still be charged at this stage?
A charge can be filed as long as the allegation is within the statute of limitations. Therefore it is important not to...
I want to request a belated hearing to show that the revocation/ suspension and 30 day temp. license is not justified.
It is past the 10 day limit after receiving the administrative per se suspension/revocation order. The Oakland office of drivers safety reccomended that I submit a written request for a belated hearing. Is this something I should have a lawyer write up? Is this a feasible option?
A lawyer can help you with this type of request, however, the reason you missed the deadline will drive whether or not...
Can I get house arrest for my possible 3rd time DUI in California?
I had a DUI in April 2008. Everything all cleared. DUI with accident in 2013 (Accident was caused by other driver slamming into me and totaling my car. They still gave me DUI). Case all cleared. And now September 2015 I got another one, but this one I was only 0.08. Bad thing was I didn't stop right away. I was scared. My licence was available to get back but I couldn't afford to pay the fees, so I had no licence. The car I just bought couldn't pass smog and my tags were expired. I was just scared of what the police were going to do. I had a bad opinion of cops then, better opinion now. Still no excuse. I'm just really really afraid of going to jail and ruining my life. I have 2 great jobs that I love. My mom depends on me to take care of her. I'm under a Psychologist's care for some issues. Is there any way you can help me inform my court appointed lawyer to keep me out of jail. I'm willing to go to a program. Go to AA every day. Attend DUI class 18/30 months. Also I'm wearing a Scram bracelet until next court date. And by the way, I haven't drank alcohol since this incident back in September 2015. Please help if you are able too. Patrick
Maybe. I would talk to your attorney about this and the best way to seek this, which sometimes is not to ask the judge...
