Second dui with prior felony dui in California
I was charged with a first dui, open container and a red light violation in Carson City,NV and bailed out on these three misdemeanor charges. I have one prior dui that was a Felony in California which I completed all probation, etc and was five years ago. I am worried the DA will raise my charges when I go to court to a Felony. Is this true and what kind of felony would it be? Also is it guaranteed prison time?
Under Nevada's "once a felon always a felon" statute, you could be charged with a felony DUI. Under that statute, it...

Moved to Carson City from CA. Have CA DMV-mandated Mandatory Action classes. How do I get NV License?
I am asking on behalf of my GF. Due to a second DUI (over 2 years ago), CA Mandatory Action requires her to complete classes in CA. She has not completed these. Important note: This is not court ordered, this is required by CA DMV. During this time she has had a CA restricted license that only allows her to drive to work and classes. She now lives in Carson City. NV DMV says CA needs to lift the hold on her license before they will issue a NV license. What can she do so she can get a NV license? Is there some procedure for this? (side note: CA mandatory action is one of the most difficult state offices you will ever have the displeasure of working with - it can take days to reach them on the phone)
Unfortunately the only thing she can do is complete her requirements from the CA DMV.
Witnesses for my DUI didn't show up today. Should I have signed the 60 day waiver?
Please refer to my previous questions for all the specifics. There were 2 witnesses that saw me drive into the parking lot the day I got arrested for DUI. They did not show up to court today. My public defender had me sign a 60 day waiver. If I hadn't signed that, would it have been dropped? Also, is there any way to undo that, since my public defender most likely wasn't looking out for my best interest in telling me to sign that? Why would there even be witnesses at my preliminary hearing/pre-trial hearing? My public defender said I already plead "not-guilty", but I did not, and thought today would be the day I did that. I would like to contact one of you directly and have you represent me and I can give you all the specifics.
I am not licensed in Nevada, so out of respect for any experienced attorney licensed in NV who answers, I would defer...
