I got my first DUI last night. I'm so lost, i don't know what to do, i can't afford a lawyer, what should I do?
I got pulled over for having my headlights turned off. I also refused to take a breathalyzer and I was taking to the Hospital for a blood test. The cop arrested me and booked me in but after my finger prints and picture was taking I was let go for good behavior. He took my drivers licence and gave me a DS 367 form but in Spanish, I don't under stand why they gave me a Spanish one. What should I do next? I have to appear in court according to my ticket on April 28. I really need my licence to go to work . What can I do to lower and charges against me? PLEASE HELP
As far as you license goes. You can keep your temporary license as long as you notify DMV that you are fighting the...
Can someone recieve a DUI on private property from riding a quad when the officer never seen her riding?
The paramdics were called to private property after a girl wrecked on her quad, she was pretty beat up with a couple of broken bones, lacerations, and a hard time breathing. The medics told her the hellicopter was on its way, the girl became more freightened and upset by this, and told them not to call the hellicopter the ambuance would do just fine. The officer or medic got upset and then began to take off the oxygen mask to have her blow into a breathalyzer. She couldnt complete the test due to her breathing, so they called the hellicopter back to the scene. They then transported her to the hospital were they gave her a blood test determining her BAC was above .08% the officers never seen the girl driving the atv. She is over 21 and on private property. Should she have recieved a DUI?
You can be convicted of DUI for driving an ATV with a BAC over .08%, even on private property and even if nobody saw...
What should my next step be as I am supposed to be tested in 6 days.
I was asked to take a urine test after receiving probation for a first offense DUI with a BAC of .11. When i arrived at the probation office, my husband told me his exes mother was a probation officer. She saw us when she was leaving, and went back inside and did not leave again until i walked out the door. After taking the test, I was taken into a room and told that I tested positive for fentanyl and ecstacy, which I have never taken in my life. I was not given any type of paperwork and this was my first meeting with probation after receiving 2 days of home confinement. I contacted my attorney and doctors immediately. I take an antidepressant and non narcotic sleep medicine. None of my medications would have set off a positive. And my doctor assured me that it is not even possible to test for those drugs without a very very expensive blood test. I was told if I failed a second drug test I would face jail time. I tried to have a blood test done but I would need a doctor's order for it. I'm waiting for my attorney's reaction but I definitely don't feel comfortable being tested by them again! I don't know what to do and I'm terrified I could go to jail for no reason!
Perhaps you can ask for a Probation Supervisor to administer the drug test for you to make sure there is no access by...

DUI & professional licensing - best way to proceed?
I'm an MFT intern and I'm currently being charged w/ DUI w/ a BAC of .138. I have a private DUI defense atty who will likely get the charged reduced to a wet and reckless, although that seems to make no difference in this circumstance. I'm about to take my final licensure exam, and just saw that the initial licensure application form requires disclosure of pending criminal activity to the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS). I expect to take my final exam in October and will likely receive a conviction in early November. Given I pass my exam, what will be my best course of action? Should I hire a licensing atty? Should I submit my initial licensure application before or after a conviction? Will the board deny licensure until after a probationary term ends?! Also, I was arrested in another state 8 yrs ago for drug-related charges. Those charges were dropped, the arrest was expunched, my record was sealed, and background was clean until now. During my recent arrest I admitted to a previous arrest for drug-related charges. This disclosure wasn't included in the police report, but is on the booking video. Will the BBS need/see the video? What is the best way for me to proceed?
You disclose your pending criminal case on your application. They will not have access to your booking video. It does...
Can 2 DUIs affect the road to citizenship?
I got 2 DUIs back in 2000. I am a permanent resident in California. I am thinking of becoming a citizen. I'd like to know if the DUIs can affect or deny my citizenship?
No. Those two DUI convictions can no longer "affect the road to citizenship" iF you had no other convictions after that....
Should I consult internal affairs over a crooked DUI?
I was napping in my parked car and awakened by police. It was hot so I felt drowsy. I take medications, same ones for years, none that directly say not to drive. I was parked though. He took my liscense and gave me some pink form checking that I was unresponsive. I had my son with me and he threatened me with child endangerment if I didn't go along? How is this legal?
Sorry, but you had to get where you were somehow. Your son did not drive, so by circumstantial evidence, the police...
