How long does the state have to file formal charges against me for a misdemeanor DUI before I can seek dismissal?
I was arrested May22nd for a DUI, my citation had a court date for July 20th. I hired a lawyer to represent me, had an approved waiver so that he would go in my place, it is now July 21st and I was informed the day of that no charges have been filed against me. So, couple questions, honestly. Did I "Miss" my court date, as no charges were filed yet neither I nor apparently my lawyer went to court (How can I face charges if none were filed). Is there a time limit at which I can seek dismissal or the charges simply go away, and following this can I get an arrest expunged from my record as I never faced charges, if in fact I am able to get it dismissed or simply 'run the clock' I heard 90 days, 30 days, 45 days, either way It's nearly two months later and still nothing.
In California, the DA has up to `1 year from the date of arrest to file charges. Cases aren't filed by the first court...
I am on informal probation till 2017 for misd. dui and misd. hit and run from 2011. Can I file to be released.
I plead guilty to seven misdemeanors stemming from a sleep driving incident in 2011 in which I was charged with hit and run and drunk driving. I was sentenced in 2013 to the usual, numerous fines, house arrest, DUI school etc... I completed everything in addition to rehab and I currently do public speaking about my experience as I was an active duty law enforcement officer at the time. Can I get any of the charges dropped or be released from the informal probation. I hear about people doing this quite often. It is difficult to get even looked at for future employment with these charges. I am more then willing to pay an attorney in the city where I was arrested to file paperwork for me. My attorney would probably not be willing. Thanks for any info.
Your attorney won't be willing because it's far too early to be seeking early termination of probation. That or you...
4th DUI but no prior convictions?? Now what happens?
They just arrested me for my 4th Dui but I have never gotten to court on the other 3. They are all on for arraignment still since I never showed up and they issued warrants. What could happen to me? . Can they charge me with a felony now? I don't have the money for an attorney should I just plead guilty and try t get a good deal?
since you cannot afford a private attorney, you should ask for the public defender the first time you go to court. You...
My son has 4 prior felony DUIs last one was 6 yrs ago. received another DUI. How much time will he get.
He has four prior felony DUIs. Just received his 5th and court date is 6 weeks away. His last DUI was 6 years ago and we thought he had turned a corner but has not been able to overcome his problem. We know he will do prison time but are wondering how long. We also know that he has a serious problem and needs rehab but he doesn't have the money or insurance to do that. He also cannot afford an attorney. Just trying to figure how much time he might get. He just got his license back after completing an 18 month course 20 months ago. How long will he lose his license for and what type of DUI program is available, if any, to reinstate his license?
There are so many variables which does not make it possible to determine how much time he will get, or for how long he...

Can they give me a DUI if I wasn't in the car when they found it
hello , well long story short I've had a beer and I flipped my car on the freeway , I quickly ran away from panicking , the police asked if my car was stolen and I said "no, I was driving the car and I panicked and ran off" they asked me if I was drinking and I said no ,( I believe I was under 0.8 ) but the officer said "we can retrieve blood from the car to see if you were under the influence" I stuck to my story and repeatedly said I was not drunk , can they still give me a DUI ? and are they able to see the amount of alchol was in my system by a few drops that was in the car
They could charge you with a DUI, but proving it in court, and finding you guilty is a different question. Consult...
