Long story short , got a DUI in 2008, paid my fine and was attending an alcohol 3 month program which I paid for as well , attended every class but failed to do the 6 aa classes that are required in the program, for this reason my license was suspended and at the time i didn't really care cause I wasn't driving. Now it's been over 5 years with a suspended license, what do I do to reinstate it , do I still have to complete those aa classes or is the 5 years suspension enough?
If the suspension was for failure to complete the alcohol classes, you have two possible problems You should check to...
July 4th 2011, I was in a 3 car collision. Car #1 slammed their breaks on a merging ramp. Car #2 followed behind. I was car #3 followed as well. Car#1 ran off. Both I and car #2 pulled over. CHP arrived to the scene and took our stories then breathalyzed both drivers. I blew 0.08%, and arrested. I was then released 16 hrs later. I reported to court to find out that the case was not filed. I waited 2 months for a court date. Nothing came. I became homeless and moved to florida. 3 years later I find out there's a misdminor bench warrant and a misdminor DUI on my record. This is my first offense. I never received a summons to appear in court. Do I have a case to fight? And how do I go about that? Please help! So I can continue with my life.
You need to hire an attorney from the county where you picked up the DUI. Preferably one with experience doing more...
I was part of a 3 car collison, the car that caused the collision took off. Leaving the other cars on the side of the road. I got out of my car to see if the people in the second car were okey. Chp arrived and took our sides of the story and suddenly gave us both the breathalyzer test. I blew 0.08% and was arrested. Was not given a "SFST" tests just the breathalyzer. I was charged with a misdemeanor dui.
If the officer had reason to believe you had driven a car under the influence of alcohol, you could be arrested for DUI....
My DUI probation is over soon and I am looking to expunge my record. I have not been driving for 3 years and did not get sr22 insurance. Will I have to get sr22 for 3 years before I can get my record expunged, or am I still eligible without the sr22?
SR-22s have nothing to do with "expungements." You should know that CA does not have a true "expungement" statute and...
Last year I was arrested for my last DUI, since I violated probation I served a year in state prison. I reported to my parole office & they didn't say anything about my suspended license. Am I eligible for a restricted driver's license? I understand I need to get a breathalyzer installed, SR-22, and attend DUI classes which I know I deserve after being a 3rd time offender. Do I need to hire an attorney to be able to drive again?
You needed and attorney yesterday. A 3rd DUI has potential jail time and a definite license suspension.
I am set to enroll in alcohol recovery class on Oct 3rd. Court date is Oct 1st. First 2 charges I went to court from jail and not able to talk to Public Defender and just took plea to get out. Did not know what I was facing. They don't know I relapsed from recovery after 5 years and am working to support my family who will suffer hardship if I do jail time. Worried prosecuter and or Judge will be mad if I don't take a plea. I have also started attending AA meetings as of Sept. 24th and will do one per day until court date at Long Beach Courthouse. I worry that my O/R will be revoked or a high bail will be set if I plead not guilty.
It sounds like you're doing everything you can to avoid having your OR revoked. Be sure to bring proof of AA meeting...

I waited for a summons for 2 months. nothing was sent to me. thinking my case was dropped as I was undergoing through living situations and had no choice but to move out of state with a family member for a better life. A few years later I then find out theres a warrant and dui charge against me. I understand I need to find a criminal defense attorney since I have no place to stay in the state I recieved my case. What are key things I should consider researching on an attorney to make sure I choose the right one for my case?
Research carefully. Avvo is a good resource. Look at the attorney's experience. Check out their website. Look at client...
