Son was taken in on a felony dui warrant to west vly det ctr in San Bernardino, no prior arrests.

No record of blood drawn for dui
Arrested by hwy patrol, taken to substation for sheriff's dept. Blood drawn, taken to jail and bailed out. No record of me at arraignment nor DA s office. No blood sample record in the system at sheriffs crime lab 15 days after the arrest. is this common?
Depends on the time frame. How long did this occur? Right now, San Bernardino criminal record system is totally broken....
The DA wants to give me a SCRAM bracelet for my first DUI, can I "bargain" or "trade" for a "different but equal" penalty?
Long story short, I had a stupid, and emotional night, drove when i shouldn't have. Ofcourse in my drunken state i decided to was a good idea to get some fast food before hitting home. I fell asleep (passed out) at the wheel in the drive through, bumping into the car infront of me. So while this is my first DUI, I understand i get "aggravated" penalties, for both the high BAC (above .20) and the "accident". I have no prior convictions, not even traffic violations. After going through several Pre-trials the DA wants to give me 10 hours work release (which is fine with me). But they also want to put a SCRAM bracelet on me for 180 days (which is absolutely humiliating, and horrifying to me). My question is: Is it possible to talk the DA out of the SCRAM? I would absolutely trade it for an IIED, or double community service, or double the fine, or ANYTHING. I just can bear to think ill have to wear that for 180 days like a felon on house arrest. Can a DA "bargain" or "trade" penalties? If so, how likely is it? and is there anything I can do to help myself? Does the fact that I preemptively enrolled in the 9-month DUI class make it any better (haven't been convicted yet)? Thank you.
The SCRAM is NOT a required penalty. You should hire a good Dui attorney to represent you.

How can I fight this, what is the best option ? Can I request any live recordings from the officer ? Will I loose my career
I got pulled over around 1am , officer did ask if I was drinking and for my license and registration. I cooperated. He left to his vehicle and when he returned , other officers arrived and took over and the cop who pulled me over left. They asked me to exit my vehicle and perform 2 tests. I cooperated. He asked me multiple questions and had me blow a breathalyzer. He said I'm under the age and put me under arrest and into his vehicle. Earlier before the arrest he stated that the officer pulled me over because I was driving to close to him. After the arrest he asked me to take a breathalyzer or blood test. Asked me if I know anyone who can pick me up. Told me my car is being transported to the impound. Asked me if I had any personal belongings in the vehicle. Offered me to drive me to my residence and released me to my mother. Uncuffed me and gave me my tickets and other paperwork.

Does the DMV keep a record of the certificate of completion from DUI program?
I had a DUI 9 years ago. I paid the fine, did the program, took the certificate of completion to the DMV and got my license back. Now, after a traffic stop, I wound up in jail- had a bench warrant I knew nothing about. Apparently the school never sent in the completion certificate to the court. I cannot find a copy and the school told me they no longer have my records. Can I get that from the DMV?
If the DMV shows that you completed the class, it should be on your record. You can get a detailed print out of your...
