Can a ca cop stop my car for a DUI if someone in a store called the police to say they thought I had been drinking.
The person in the store never saw me drink and never saw me drive. As soon as I was backing out of the parking spot the cop stopped behind me. The cop did not say he was pulling me over for a traffic violation. The person in the store was never called over to identify me. Can a traffic stop occur because of heresay? After I was taken into custody at the police station the blood test did show I was over the limit. The cop did not say I was breaking any traffic laws nor was anything wrong with my car. Can a judge dismiss this because there was no probable cause for the stop.
It sounds like the officers did not have any legal cause for the stop. A witnesses statement can be sufficient if...

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...
Will I get an extension for my DUI requirements?
I was sentenced in March of 2016 at the LA Metro Court of a first time misdemeanor DUI with aggravating factors and converted fines to community service (can't do labor due to disability). I was given one year to complete my requirements. I still have to complete: 200 hours (out of 400 hours) of community service, 3 months of my 9 month alcohol program, MADD & HAMM classes. I had difficulty with paying for my alcohol program / moving / divorcing, I started all my requirements late due to moving last summer. The lawyer saw in November my progress, and was okay with everything, I'm at the same progress as then because of finally getting a job. The MADD & HAMM classes are not offered where I live (Santa Maria, CA) and it's difficult for me to get to Los Angeles where I was convicted. Will the judge give me an extension? How long can I ask for? Should I contact the court BEFORE my court date?
YES, the judge will probably give you an extension but you should ask for it ahead of time. Be proactive. You already...
Completing dui terms and conditions on time?
I got a dui about 9 months ago. The court gave me 1 year to complete all the terms and conditions of my probation. I have completed the dui class, the HAMM and MADD courses and paid about half of the fine. If I am unable to pay the complete amount of the fine by the last day it is due what should I do? Appear in court and request an extension? Do i have to see the judge? Thanks
Sounds like a trip to court is in order. Either you or your lawyer will need to go. Better your lawyer.

What happens after DUI for marijuana in California ?
I was smoking marijuana in my car with my friends(one was in the car with me others were outside the car) in a low key spot we always hangout. Police came saw us and told us to leave then when I did leave i was driving up the street from where we were and he was hiding waiting for me to drive by and when I drove by he pulled me over and gave me a dui. I have a medical marijuana recommendation so before I left the spot I put everything in my trunk. One other fact was that I know the police were out of jurisdiction because they are known cops in my city of Glendale.. but the spot I was hanging out on and the st they pulled me over was NOT in Glendale but in Los Angeles. Couple blocks away. What do I do now? Is my license suspended?
You need to fight this. You need to hire an attorney who HAS and does handle drug (marijuana) DUIs. The DMV should...
