I was pulled of for having expired plates which turned into getting a DUI but my registration was not expired. Can I fight this?
I am a California resident. My license plates are from Texas. My dad renewed the registration in Texas the day before getting pulled over in Cali for expired registration. This ended in me getting arrested for DUI. I have the receipt showing the day the new registration is effective, and it is the day before my arrest.
The law is if the officer had particularized suspicion to stop you. So, if he suspected your registration was not valid...
120 days jail time for 3rd DUI?
Received 3rd DUI last week. 1st two were in 2006 and 2008. I also had a warrant for driving with a suspended license. Was released the next day and court date is set end of March 2015. I spoke with someone and they said 120 days is minimum and that there may be things added with that warrant. Have a 7 month baby and 3 year old toddler, their mother and them are all on my work benefits and I also provide the finances for child care. I want to know how this would work? Will I get the option for house arrest so that I can still work and provide these things for my kids or would I have to serve all the time behind bars? There were no injuries for any DUI's.
House arrest may be possible, but this should have already been addressed with your attorney. The sentence given by the...

How to get a California license after DWI in Maine seven years ago?
I had my Maine License suspended after a DWI in 2007 and was required to enter the state's "DEEP" (Driver Education Evaluation Program) which I attended for three months, but never got my license reinstated. I have since lived in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Florida, and now reside in California. I have been unlicensed for seven years but am interested in driving again out of necessity as my job requires me to be more mobile than before. I can't go back to Maine to go through a months-long program, so how can I sort this out here in California?
you will need to get your license reinstated in Maine or have any suspension from main lifted
Can I file Chapter 7 bankruptcy for property damage before restitution is set?
2 years ago, I hit 2 PG&E poles and was charged with a DUI. PG&E has filed a restitution order against me for $200,000+. I only make about $1,000 a month and cannot pay that amount. Is it possible to file bankruptcy to discharge the debt before the judge orders me to pay? If not, is it possible to have the amount lowered?
On the criminal defense side of things, it depends on where the case is as to what can be done. If there hasn't been a...
