It is always possible to have Immigration issues with any misdemeanor, and 2) it is possible you still be able to apply...
Can my DUI citation be changed from misdemeanor to felony?
I was recently involved in an accident in which I was the only one injured. I was taken to the hospital where the officer was given a vial of my blood for testing. Though I was not arrested only given a citation which was marked misdemeanor so I'm due back in court on the court date appointed. Can this be changed to a felony at the time of my court date? My hospital record reads "acute alcohol intoxication"
Yes it can be charged as a Felony if someone other than you was injured. If not then it's probably going to be a...
I have a court date for DUI
Hit a parked car due to black outs, I have a mengenioma. Got arrested for DUI. Passed the breath test that wasn't good enough, cops took me to get a blood test and arrested me.

California DUI arrest and didn't blow. DMV suspends license for 1 year, are there any options for me?
Arrested in Ventura County. I refused the breath test but agreed to the blood test. DMV sides with officer and suspends my license for 1 year. Do I have ANY recourse or options to drive? I'm a first time offender and I just can't believe there are no options. It's astounding. How do they expect people to work and earn a living?
There are no options when the DMV finds a refusal other than than to challenge that finding via filing a writ in the...

Do I have a chance at fighting a DUI charge
I was arrested for a DUI recently with a .2 BAC. I understand how high that was but feel that was higher than what it should have been. As far as the circumstances that revolves around it goes, I was parked on the shoulder of a freeway making a phone call. After a few minutes, CHP pulled behind me to see what I was doing. I let them know making a phone call. I was outside the whole time as they pulled behind me and did not see me driving at all. I understand they can still get me for a DUI but it's a matter if it's worth fighting for to at least reduce charges imposed on me through claims that it should not have been a .2 BAC which was obtained from a breathalyser on the spot. Thank you.
Assuming you were alone and had no passengers, it will tough to beat a .20 BAC. You may have admitted to driving...
