Where can I veiw my blood test results?
I was arrested for DUI RX and the DMV hearing was set aside. Would I have been able to view my blood test results there? Who would have the results at this time and how can I view them before my court date?
Generally, you should receive a packet of documents called "discovery" from the city attorney who is prosecuting your...
DMV doesn't offer an IID for motorcycle, what if I don't have a car?
I was convicted of 1st offense DUI. DMV sent me a notice to get an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) for my vehicle for 6 months but I sold my car last year when I received the DUI and have been riding a motorcycle. DMV doesn't offer an IID for motorcycle so I'm forced to get an IID Exemption. DMV says it takes 4-6 weeks to get a decision on the IID Exemption but it has been 10 weeks. Is there any other legal solution since the DMV does not offer IID for motorcycles but it is a requirement?
Unfortunately there is not. At this point there is no IID for a motorcycle and I highly doubt there will be one in the...
My two knuckle-head friends were shooting at each other with pellet guns while drunk. One of them shot the other in the chest.
The bullet went through her body and the doctors are not sure whether she will survive or not. Keep in mind that it was a complete accident and the other girl, I think, will most likely survive. The other one got arrested and was released on bail and was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Is it possible to point out to the DA that they were drunk and not in the usual state of mind during the incident? Can the charges be lowered in this unfortunate case in any way? What are some possible outcomes? It was an accident, the other person will not press charges and she was under the influence of alcohol. (I'm hoping that the whole alcohol thing could help her out although it probably is my wishful thinking).
Individuals do not make a decision whether to "press charges" or not. The District Attorney reviews police reports to...
Am I obligated to pay for the instructor's "no show" DUI classes?
I am on the 3 months court ordered DUI program. On 3 occasions the instructor didn't show up, so after 10 minutes the entire group went home with the credit for the class given but also charged for the class as it actually took place as well. Is it up to the facility to decide it or there is some law dictating whether the charges can be applied or not.
I know of no law on the matter. You might check with your attorney. I guess as long as you are getting credit you do...
Is there any way to get credit for past courses for DUI schools?
Back in 1991 I was convicted for my second DUI. Over the last 2 and 1/2 decades I have tried to complete this course. I need to know if there is any way to get credit for my past courses? And is there a way that I can get a restricted license?
You need to go to DMV and get a referral to complete the SB 38 program. But if you never did it, there is probably a...
Unemployable due to DUI and drug possession charges in 2013?
In July 2013, I was arrested for 11377 (F), 23152 (M), and 11550 (M). It was my first arrest. My lawyer said that he split my case into two separate case numbers in order for me to be accepted into the diversion program, as the DUI charges would have prevented me from getting into it. I never really understood the rationale he gave me. I successfully completed the required alcohol and drug classes. In August 2015, my now-former employer laid a bunch of us off. Since then, everyone has found work except for me. I am panicking because I haven't even received one phone call requesting an interview. I have a sinking feeling that my arrest record is to blame. Would Prop 47 help me out by reducing my felony drug possession charge to a misdemeanor? What about expungement?
Prop 47 would most likely reduce the felony to a misdemeanor. A 17(b) reduction to a misdemeanor might be better for...
Would I be able to avoid a DWI?
I was pulled over for passing an officer on the freeway. I complied with the field test but declined the Breathalyzer. I had 5 drinks in the span of 4 hours and was afraid to blow over. I was arrested for suspicion and I took the blood test 2.5 hours later. The officers didn't take my license so i don't have to contact the DMW. A DUI is not likely since the officers returned my licence and I'm estimating my BAC will be along 0.02-0.04. Is a "wet reckless" likely? This is a first offence.
You aren't going to get a meaningful answer from a stranger on the Internet, especially without the actual test results....
