How likely is it that I'll go to jail for a first time dui?
I was pulled over and arrested for DUI last friday. When pulled over officers came to my window and advised that I was swerving and going too slow on the freeway. I tried to explain that my spouse and I felt as though someone was following us, so I slowed down to give the car behind us a reason to pass but that didn't happen. I switched lanes and the officers pulled ME over. They asked me to step out of the vehicle to perform a series of tests. I did every did with no problem. They had me take a breat test and said my alcohol level was too high and that they were taking me in for a dui. My spouse (who was with me) was shot in the face yain september 2016 by a gang affiliated individual. We've since then have not been the same. My spouse asked the officers to drive us home but they wouldn't budge.. I tried explaining my reasons for slowing down & it didn't have any affect on them. After I was booked and taken I stayed incarcerated for a little over 5hrs then released on OR. a pink dmv temporary license was given to me and I was advised to notify the dmv (going today) within 10 days. I have court in long beach on the 27th ofof this month and am seeking an attorney

Should I carry with me documentation of a medical issue that impairs my equilibrium?
I have a muscular disorder that affects my equilibrium and gait. Typically I'm only a passenger in someone else's car or a pedestrian, so I can't see ever having to undergo a Field sobriety test but in Los Angeles County, and in Long Beach, that unlikelihood is like trusting Bernie Madoff with your life savings. Nevertheless, given the ataxia that comes with the disorder, is it advisable to have some "documentation" that I can show them (after receiving their consent to take it out, of course!) to "explain" it? I've never been in trouble with the law. Admittedly I've been stopped by LBPD three times in ten years and always had positive experiences, even being thanked by the officers for being cooperative and understanding of their doing their job. But there's always the exception to make a nightmare a reality.

Do i still need to do DUI classes to get my license reinstated if my DUI was 13 years ago?
I got my first and only DUI in August of 2013 and when I went to court the judge asked me if I wanted to go to jail for 30 days instead of doing all the other things they make you go through. I did that and I assumed that fulfilled the legal requirements. Because of where I live, I didn't really need a car and just used public transport and social ride shares. Recently I inherited my brothers car and am applying for a job that requires a valid CA license. Does the DMV still require that I go? Or does the time elapsed wipe all that away? I requested an online version of my DMV history and under license status it says, " "suspended or revoked" "Surrendered by subject" I have no other convictions, moving violations, failures to appear or accidents. Someone told me I'm able to just go and pay the suspension fee and get my license back. Any truth to this? The dui happened in LA county and I still reside in LA county.

I was arrested for a DUI with a BAC of .06%. What are the chances the charges get dismissed?
I wasn't able to stay straight in my lane as I was trying to find my car charger in my center console. Shortly after I straightened out I was pulled over.
