Out of state traveler got DUI in a rental car. Now I have a 23152A violation. What do I do?
I visited Healdsburg, CA for a wedding and got pulled over leaving a parking lot to head home. I live in Chicago and was using a rental car at the time. I blew a .19 and was put in jail overnight and then released. They gave me my drivers license and confusing paperwork. I tried the DMV but never got through. Back home, I now received a letter with a 23152A violation. What do I need to do? I do not want to go back to CA to handle this. I do not own a car back home.
You need to retain a lawyer in California with plenty of experience in DUI defense. You don't want a default on your...

Sister in Law is in jail now (about a month) no bail posted....5th DUI (I know that's horrible) but her past lawyer is charging $9,000 PER CASE (2 CASES $18,000) absolutely can not afford that!...she stated the public defender is not being very informal to her. They say she may get 4-10 years, is there anyway she can get some major treatment / help send her somewhere?? I want to help her so she can get well, but not be in jail any longer than 4 years or be able to get less than 4 years. She's a good person, but needs help. Thank you. (In DuPage Co IL jail now) (one case is in Cook Co and the other in DuPage).
She'll get help. Treatment will be a mandatory condition of her sentence. However, working on her 4th and 5th DUI,...
For a DUI what needs to be put in the order for summary statutory suspension?
Hello. I am representing myself in a DUI since I cannot afford my own and do not want to use the public defender. I worked out a deal where they will let me win the motion for statutory summary suspension and I will get supervision on the DUI. My question is, can someone please help me with the language that needs to be put into the order winning the statutory summary suspension? Lastly, what do I do with the order once I have it? Do I send it to Springfield? Can I take it in person in Cook County anywhere? Thank you very much for your time.
I will be surprised if any lawyers on this website are willing to work for free and write your order for you. Perhaps...

I plead down to Reckless Driving in Illinois, and got a year of supervision. Will I be drug tested at any time?
I have no history of DUI or drug arrests or problems of any kind, this was my first arrest. My Alcohol and Drug Evaluation says I am Minimal Risk. The problem I have is that in this report, under Classification 9.2, the evaluator (who had to interview me over the phone since she couldn't read the notes of the lady I did mine in person with who got fired.) "Random drug testing is recommended." While my Sentencing Order says the opposite under Drug/Alcohol Related Conditions, the box that is in bold type so you can't miss it says "Submit to random drug testing" which is unchecked, "Complete drug/alcohol evaluation and treatment recommendation" which is directly above it was checked, which I have no problem with. Will I have it take random drug tests? Thanks in advance,
If the alcohol evaluation comes back with a recommendation of random testing, it may be possible that you must submit...
Will probation be given or denied?
He has been in custody for 4 months to be exact. He was picked up on a warrant for fta in court three years ago for an agg. DUI. He didnt show up because he was afraid and also because his brother passed away in the same month or so. And the attorney hired at the time was of no help at all. We have proof of the brothers death. Would that help in any case? He was offered a year in prison, three years ago. Can he get probation with the time spent in custody already? Thank you.
Who is "he/him" and what are/were the charges? Your question has a lot of facts but is very confusing. Perhaps if you...
