I had a DUI in California, but Ca DL not revoked / no pink slip??
I was arrested for a DUI in Humboldt county, California. The officer "did not" inform me of BAC after 2 breath tests. I was taken to jail and kept for 5 hours. Registered and pictures taken. I was released with a paper stating "Driving under influence", (No codes mentioned), with a court date on the bottom of the paper. The officer told me, "I am keeping your original license in your wallet." I was not given the Pink slip. My Ca drivers license was not confiscated. Its only been 3 working days, but the DMV do not have any information about my license yet? I would like to know if my BAC was over 0.08 - which made them take me to jail and charge me with DUI, why did they not cancel my CA Drivers License? Is there a chance my level was < 0.08? What should I infer?
The officer is not required to advise you of your breath test results. It would be best to contact a local DUI...

Can I expunge a DUI from 7 years ago and how long would it take?
I was convicted of DUI in summer 2008. I would like to expunge or seal it if possible.

Can I expunge or seal this DUI and how long does it generally take? Currently facing charges out of state so would like to limit the potential impact of this. The California DUI does not show on FBI check or NCIC and is not on my out of state drivers license.
You can neither "expunge" nor seal it in CA. Assuming you successfully completed probation, you may file a PC1203.4...
I received a DUI in Humboldt County with a BAC of . 21. Is there really any point to hiring an attorney?
I have read on numerous legal advice sites that there is almost a 100% conviction rate at this level of BAC and, objectively, I was definitely in the wrong. I should NOT have been driving and was definitely a risk. What would be the TRUE advantages of hiring a lawyer. I am very poor and want an honest answer if I am going to consider paying the substantial fees to retain an attorney. This is going to cripple me financially.
One TRUE advantage to hiring an attorney is you don't have to appear in court. Maybe there's a discrepancy with the...
