Can I apply for an Emergency Medical Services fee waiver ?
A few months ago,after being stopped for DUI I have been transported to a local hospital , released after a couple hours and taken to jail where I was detained overnight.

What to do depends on who, what, where when and why. Do you have an attorney? You could contest the bill but maybe...
Interlock Device for motorcycle owner? (1st time dui 20 years old when i got my dui)
I got a DUI in September 2012 and I was 20 at the time and blew a 0.15. I got the usual first offender under 21 consequences (community service, fees, dui school, aa meetings, and license suspension for 1 year) Now I completed EVERYTHING and I'm just waiting around for the 1 year suspension to finish which will end on January 6. Now do I have to get an interlock device? I only have a motorcycle and don't own any cars. I live with my parents now, but in January I will be moving out and will be living on my own. How does this work? I don't want to wait another 5 months starting from january to get my license....is there a last resort option of getting a device on motorcycles? So in general, how does the 'pilot' program work for motorcycle owners?

When a DUI conviction is expunged, under Penal Code §1203.4, does it come off one's DMV record?

Question regarding a legal arrest or illegal arrest. that resulted in a DUI
My car ran out of gas and was parked on the driveway of a hospital my friend went to go get gas. I'm drunk waiting in and around the car for my friend to come back with gas. the keys are out of the ignition. A cop comes and asked me if I need any help. He see's that I am drunk then takes me to jail for dui. Was that a legal arrest? due to the fact that I was on private property and there was no call to the cops for them to come interrogate me. Fyi; My friend was the driver and the buy the time my friend came back the cops already took me away.
The “stop” and interaction with the police officer will most likely be viewed by the court as being lawful as it was...
If blood test is suppressed and there is no PAS, what is the likelihood of still going to trial on 23152(a) charges in CA?
Blood suppressed, no PAS. Do Prosecutors still like to go to trial without chemical tests?
The unusal thing about an (a) charge is that no PAS or Blood is needed. The case can proceed on the testimony/...
Is wet reckless driving considered a significant misdemeanor, under the President Obama's law helping the young(deferred action)
I meet all the qualifications other then the fact that I have a wet reckless charge from 7 years ago. From what I am aware one is disqualified if u have DUI in ur criminal record. In California a wet reckless is a lesser charge than a DUI. I graduated college and I have been in the US since I was 4.
The President passes (did not pass any) law.
