    The suspect in the brutal 2012 slaying of a young Wilmington woman found slashed to death and hidden in bushes off L Street appears finally headed for trial in 2018 in what appears to be a busy court year for high-profile South Bay and Harbor Area cases working toward justice. Arrested in January 2013, Angel Guevarabello's case for the Jan. 2, 2012 killing of 28-year-old Cristian "Cristy" Zugey Alvarez has been rescheduled for years, mainly because the transgender woman has suffered with medical issues.

    A judge ordered two men Tuesday to stand trial on gross vehicular manslaughter charges for killing an innocent Harbor City man , saying a split-second security video appeared to show two cars racing at high speed moments before a gruesome crash on Pacific Coast Highway in Torrance. During a preliminary hearing in Torrance Superior Court, Judge Hector Guzman rebuffed arguments from defense attorneys for Luis Samaniego Barajas and Zachary Frank Leets, both 19, that there was not enough evidence to show the men were racing late June 3. Moments after the cars were captured on video, Samaniego Barajas crashed head-on into 20-year-old Maximillian Alexis Rojas as Rojas drove home from his new job at a Torrance restaurant.

I passed a sobriety test and blew a .06 and got a arrested for "minor DUI" . How is that possible based on California law
I was pulled over because the cars previous owner had a warrant. No open container passed the sobriety test and blew .06 3 time once when pulled over and 2 times at the station

Will this help with my allege DUI?
I received papers today from the DMV its stated that the officer that had arrest me and pulled me over at 10:30 that was incorrect because I have pictures that's time-stamped at 9:53 and where I was I wash a movie so it was impossible for them to pull me over at 10:30 when I haven't even got to my destination to 9:53 and my destination was only about 8 minutes away from where they pulled me over at
Officer credibility is one of the keys to betting a DUI. Maybe this discrepancy can be used to help you, maybe not....
DUI Question ?
I am wearing a scram bracelet as part of my pre-trial release conditions. Can a person or defense attorney approach a judge and request it be removed? Would that defendant then have to pay bail, but get it taken off. Wearing this thing is not confortable and embarrasing to waer. My attorney has fallen ill and i'm just asking while she is sick. Thanks

How can I expunged my dui?
I was arrested in 2013 for a dui I did jail time and from their, I was transferred to the DHS ICE officials for custody. After I was released in 2015 I received a citation for driving with a suspended lisence the judge order me to enroll in dui classes I did, installed an interlock device in my vehicle as well I did obtain my drivers lisences back again, but the problem I have right now is that I am having extreme financial hardship at the moment and due to my criminal record I am unable to get hired and I am also dealing with immigration at the moment, and the place where I got my interlock device is not allowing me to remove the device from my vehicle due to my vehicle not working which now they are charging me for the device like if I have purchased it completely which I cant even affored to pay. I am just seeking for information on how I can do it myself due to not being able to afford to hire an attorney.

Is it possible to get a DUI case dismissed if I was possibly drugged?
I woke up in the hospital after totalling my car. Fortunately no one was injured and I only had a few bruises. I don't remember leaving the night club or driving at all. I can't help but wonder if I might have been given drugs because the events that took place just don't add up. I am scheduled to appear in court in 2 weeks for vc 23152a. It's been 3 weeks since the accident and the DMV has not suspended my driver's license (it was not on me at the hospital, I later retrieved it from my car at the wreckage yard). They took a urine test at the hospital but no one told me the result. They did put me in jail for 6 hours before releasing me. I have been thinking I will plead guilty since it was irresponsible to drive my car to a bar in the first place and I should accept the consequences. It's just that every other time in the past if I wasn't sober I'd call a cab or walk. I absolutely do not remember ever getting in my car. The events just don't add up. I know it's a stretch to think someone could have given me drugs I just don't understand what happened.
Anything is possible, but that's a tough sell unless it's a date rape drug or something like that. You should...
