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 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.
DUI...Upcoming Court..DUI Conviction
I was arrested on 7/15 for DUI, the arresting officer took a breathalyzer sample even tho I told him I didn't trust breathalyzer results and wanted to do blood test. He took me to ER to get a sample of my blood. I was released the next day on OR. I went to my arraignment on 8/7 and the judge remanded me to jail because the DA was using preliminary breathalyzer results. The blood results are still not in as of today and I have court tomorrow. Can I be convicted based on preliminary breathalyzer result? or will they have to wait for blood results? how long does that typically take?
I am confused. Were you released from jail on the 16 and reincarcerated on August 7th. Are you still in jail? Is this...
What happens next?

This is a great question for your lawyer. Assuming that you were not convicted of the DUI in court, and this is a...
Convicted of a DUI in court but still have not had DMV hearing. When does my 30 day hard suspension start?
I was arrested for a DUI on 7/13. I was just convicted of a DUI in the court arraignment on 8/4. I am aware of the 30-day hard suspension before I can apply for restricted license with the DMV; however, my DMV APS hearing is scheduled for 8/31. I am wanting to know how soon I can apply for the restricted license. Does my 30 days start today 8/4 as this was my date of suspension from the court (essentially being able to apply for the restricted license as of 9/4)? Also I am debating on canceling out the DMV hearing now since my license is already suspended from the court. Is this wise?
The suspension begins now. Speak to your attorney for further details. The conviction results in a suspension.
