How long does the DA get to prosecute a DUI in CA?
I was pulled over & arrested for DUI over five years ago. I hired an attorney & my first court date was set. I was told my presence was not necessary & my attorney attended. The ADA asigned to my case did not show up. No further dates were ever scheduled. I feel like i've got this hanging over me but I'm afraid to draw any attention to it... I don't even want to remind MY lawyer.
The DA has one year to file a misdemeanor complaint after the incident that gave rise to it (I presume yours was not a...

When I was arrested for my duid the officer never took my license. Do I have to file a SR.-22 and pay?
This is my first offense with any kind of drugs. My first Dui. I was sleeping in my truck and they woke me up and I freaked out, started my truck up and ran into a bush. I came to when they had me cuffed on the ground. They told me that's what I had done. Then they took me in for a blood test, I didn't refuse. I was very compliant with the arresting officer after the scene of course.
First of all, you should speak with a DUI attorney for a free consultation. You should be able to find a lawyer on...
I blew a .066 but chp added .o2 due to an hour had lapsed and charged me with a dui. Can I beat it?
I was in a car accident and it took chp a little over an hour to get there. I performed several field tests and blew .066 but said due to the time lapse they had to add .02 which put me over the legal limit and I was arrested and charged with misdemeanor dui. I have never heard such a thing, but this is also my first dui. Is there cause to fight for it to be completely dropped with a good lawyer?
That's ridiculous. How did he know if you were going up or coming down? What did you say? (Don't answer that here,...
Can I still reduce my felony DUI to a misdemeanor if I had probation violations?
I got a felony DUI back in 2002, with no injuries or accident. I was sentenced to 5 years of felony probation. While on probation, I had a couple of violations and my probation was revoked and then reinstated to a probation called drug court, which I successfully completed in 2007. Since then, I have had no contact with law-enforcement and am a law-abiding citizen.
Legally speaking, yes you can, however, the judge will likely use the probation violations as a reason to deny the...
