What argument should I use to convince the court that I was driving to emergency because I was sick and needed medical care?
I was suffering from an acute migraine headache. Early in the morning of the third day of this migraine I decided to drive myself to the emergency hospital. I could not call an ambulance because I was in a remote part of the Mojave Desert and did not get a cell phone signal. My head felt like it was going to explode. So I was very anxious to get to emergency and I was speeding. A CHP officer spotted me, stopped me, and administered the field sobriety tests. I failed the tests. The officer cited me for driving under the influence of drugs and arrested me. I was taking prescription medications for the migraine. My neurologist told me that severe migraine headaches will cause a person to appear to be drunk. At arraignment I pled not guilty and requested a court appointed attorney.
Your attorney will review all the evidence and possible defenses. Those of us on Avvo on not privy to all the...
How to prove 1650 waiver
In 2010 my son received a DUI in CA. He was a resident of Oregon and possessed and Oregon DL. He paid all the fines. CA had a hold on his Oregon license preventing him from renewing it. They said it was because he needed to complete the classes. We explained that was not possible as he lives in Oregon. They had him fill out and file a 1650 waiver. We sent it to the court and DMV. The hold was lifted. He found out today on a background check he has a warrant from CA for not completing the class. Joshua Tree says he has to appear or have an attorney appear, reopen the case and if he has proof of the 1650 or file one if judge allows... They have the form not us, no clue how to prove it got to them other than the hold was lifted? We have no idea what to do and he cannot go to Joshua Tree to appear he lives and works in Oregon. Any suggestions?
The court and DMV are 2 separate forums. The 1650 applies to the DMV but not the court. He needs to get an order from...
I got pulled over for a DUI they took my blood but two hours later I blew a .13 bac is my case worth fighting ???
I got pulled over my a chp officer well technically I was parked getting out the vehicle. The chp said that someone called ms in which I read is correct they can pull you over for that. I refused the breath test at the chp car and was told I had a choice at the police station. I was never once read my rights but understand that the chp don't need to do that because they build there case before hand with the field sobriety test. Once I was down at the station I ask for a breath test instead of the blood which I was denied because the nurse was already there. I was them notified by the chp I could give it willing or force draw which I choose willing. I'm in the military and already getting punished by them. I just want to know if I should hire a lawyer to fight the case or just plead guilty

Can I use the form POS-015 by itself to show service of process for my SC-100 papers?
I was given a standard S-104 form and the selections on the form do not meet my situation, as my papers need to be served to an agent of service by mail. Just wondering, if I do use POS-015, do I also need any of the other SC-104 forms along with it? Or is a completed POS-015 all I need to show the court proof of service?
I already answered your question. This is NOT a DUI matter, it's Small Claims. Go the the Self Help Center at the...
