  • County settles with family of man who died

    Wednesday Jan 27 | via RecordNET 

    Wearing a white T-shirt with the words “Justice For Jeremy” on his back, the father of a man who was found drowned in the San Joaquin River days after being released from the San Joaquin County Jail in 2009 told the county supervisors Tuesday that there is a need for society to make advances in the mental health field. Joined by several family and friends, Jerry Lum spoke during the public comment portion of Tuesday's meeting, stating an illness in the head or brain is a condition that should be treated the same way as a condition of the heart, lungs or any other organ in the human body.

What do I need to do before my DUI court date?
I was pulled over one night driving a friend home when I was pulled over for speeding, my friend had stated to the officer I was giving her a ride home.I had given him my license and registration then he hold me to get out of the car & began making me take tests. He said I couldn't blow in the breath test hard enough & I did 3 times. He didn't tell me my bac level & he said he was going to take me in just for a suspicion of a DUI. Once I was in the car he has asked me if I wanted to do a breath test or a blood test. I have told him I did the breath test so I had to do the blood one. They still haven't told me my bac level & I stood in jail for 8 hours. So what courses of actions should I take before court if this was my first one? I have never received a ticket, been in jail or anything.
First course of action is to obtain a lawyer
1988 DUI ,I fulfilled all court recquirements including 6 Mo. school but DMV says I should have been sent to a year school.
Have I fallen between the cracks,or am I obligated to take another 18 months of DUI school because they only offer 6 mo. and 18 mo. schools and Dmv wont let me take another 6 mo. school which the court assigned me, to complete the year of classes?
The first question I would have for you is what is the current status of your California Driver’s License. Understand...
Can you get my charges dismissed?
I was driving on I-5 near Stockton and CHP stopped me going 90mph. Took my blood and it ended up being a .13 so yeah I had a DUI. However, police officer never read me my Miranda Rights he just arrested me for DUI. I read online that means an automatic dismissal of all charges with prejudice no filing. I got to arraignment and demanded they dismiss my case but my public pretender lied to me and told me that the DA didn't have to dismiss my case. The DA was unethical and refused to dismiss the charges even though I told him I was not read my rights. The judge set it for a pretrial and my PD refused to help me. I need a real lawyer for an easy dismissal my rights were violated.
I'm really curious where you read online that failure to read you your Miranda Rights results in automatic dismissal?...
What would happen to my drivers license if I do DUI classes.
I got a third DUI in 2013. It was in a different county then the others. I was completely blessed, when the court (alameda) charged me as a 1st offender (they did not know of others). The DMV knew and immediately suspended my license for 1 yr hard ler their own rules, etc. Here is the interesting part: Alameda never reported my conviction to DMV. This is due to my name being misspelled on ticket and court documents as the DMV needs exact matching in the system. I researched this. Needless to say i got my full license after the year and no multi class req, etc. Now, the court wants a 1st offenders class done. How could I do this without getting on the radar with DMV? I am afraid the class would report my real name to DMV and they would pick up on that i got a conviction since court never reported... would this create some issue? My PD wont return call since it has been a couple years.
eventualy your conviction and dmv record will be reconciled.
Can i appeal a DUI from 4 years ago ?
i was convicted of DUI a few years ago by a jury. Even though it was proven that the machine used was over by .03 consistantly for many months and i blew .10. i was pulled over for speeding (not swerving) the HWP officer lied on the report and said i was rocking back and fourth as to emply my empairment. and the public pretender never made a motion to have the evidence thrown out or dismiss the case on lack of evidence. i feel i got railroaded and want another shot at defending myself.
Sorry you feel that way, but four years later there's nothing you can do. It's done.
Is there a time limit on signing up for AWP and where to start first?

If you were found knocked out in the road from being jumped (not in your car) can you be charged with a dui
also suffering from a concussion and no memory of what happened after being knocked out can anything you say be used in court? only thing remembered is right before being jumped and knocked out. next thing remembered is waking up in ambulance and a little here and there in the hospital. do not remember the police conversation , was given a Breathalyzer not sure how or why the police even considered drinking as they responded to a fight and found me knocked out when they arrived. I did have a couple drinks 3 or 4 hours earlier and had slept some before leaving in my car...do not know my test yet from the breathalyzer
If the prosecuting agency believes they have the evidence to prove that you were dui, then they can certainly file a...
