First DUI --I will probably choose a jail time instead paying fines. Will I be placed with a general or the random population?
Quite foreign topic for me. Are there any special jails,or cells for the people sentenced for DUI ? Scary option but currently have no choice
Sorry to hear you have no choice but county jail. You will be processed just like everyone else. DUI's with gangsters,...
RN with a second DUI -- got a letter I don't understand. Do I need a lawyer now?
I'm an RN in California. I recently (last month) was convicted of my second DUI. My first DUI was in 2007. I got my license back in 2009 and have never had a problem with the BRN. I just got a letter in the mail offering "diversion." I don't know what this means or whether I should go, and it scares me because it says I will be "investigated" if I don't go to diversion. Should I tell the BRN about my DUI now? My renewal is due in 2016. Is it okay to ignore this letter from the Board?
DO NOT ignore the letter from the board, unless you really don't want that license any longer. My advice, assuming...
A 2nd DUI offense. We have a family member who has a 45 day sentence, and prebooks tomorrow.
Is jail @ 45 days better than work release? And at 45 days will he serve, what 60%. He is to report to the Santa Ana jail for pre booking at 6:30 pm. Is this normal? We think he was giving an option of house monitoring, and work release. I think they will let him know if he qualifies for any. What is the best option? We think he should do the 45 days, and possibly be released in 30.
He should contact his attorney. His attorney will have the answers.
I was arrested for drunk driving while intoxicated and I was not drunk, at 11:00 PM ,i had 2 whiskey at 12 midnight i had 1 more
I was stopped 2:17 AM & asked 2 take sobriety test.I thought I passed every test.I declined to take the breathanalyzer at scene. the officer arrested me, treated me badly & I said that I am going to sue you &I think he then decided to make my life miserable. He took me for the breath test at station. I blew first time & the reading came up as insufficient . second time I blew so ard & the reading again came as insufficient & they took me 4 blood test. I asked to take the breath test again,they declined. their refusal of taking me to rstroom made me even more angry. We arrived at the hospital at 3:45 & they gave me a paper to sign saying I do not have a heart condition. because of my heart condition, I asked to see a DR b4 signing, they remained silent, and after 40 mins,they said 2 late
You can easily be looking at a DUI with a refusal to submit to a chemical test. You should hire an attorney as soon as...
Should I ask the DA to fill out "failure to file charges" form so that the DMV does not impose their suspension?
I was pulled over for tinted windows and an air freshener hanging from my rearview mirror by CHP. I was then given the FST's and the breathalizer (which would not get a reading) and the offcers could not determine if I was DUI so they took me to their station for another breathalizer. My results were .16. I suffer from physcological problems so at this time in the station I blacked out and started threatening to harm myself. I was taken to jail to be booked but denied entry due to my m state. I was then taken to a hospital held on a 51/50. My doctor had an order to release me back into custody after the 51/50 but instead informed the CHP that I was being held on a 52/50, at that time she was infromed all charges were being dropped. Its been 31 days since. I was not given a court date/place
If you can get the DA to fill it now why wouldnt you do it. Also the DA has up to a year to file the case. So if they...
Can factual errors in the Probable Cause section of the DS 367 get my DUI dismissed?
I was arrested for DUI, and when I got the police report in the DMV discovery packet, I noticed factual errors. The officer essentially states that I swerved into a southbound onramp, before being observed speeding on a northbound freeway, from point A to point B, but point B is 5 miles to the south. Can I argue that the DS 367 violates EC 1280 (c) that the report be "trustworthy" and is inadmissible hearsay?
It won't get your case dismissed in court but it could be used to impeach the officer's testimony that his testimony is...
