What are my daughters chances of getting a plea deal for a .10 BAC DUI?
My daughter was arrest by the CHP for DUI with a BAC .10 in the Long Beach PD jail. There was no accident. Said she was pulled over because she was swerving. This is her first offense with no prior criminal record. She is a 24 year old student and wants to know if plea deals are possible even if arrest procedures were followed.
Unless your daughter wants to go to trial, she will get a plea deal. The question is what that plea deal will be. She's...

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.

No, they can and usually do test for all drugs. I think that answers your question.

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. I did the field sobriety test and blew on the breathalyzer at the scene. They took me in and again I blew in a machine, but at the station at which I blew a .06. I have no prior DUI charges and no other tickets in the last decade.
