My judge told me I dont "Qualify" for an attorney?
I went to court on possesion of marijuana (about 1 gram) and drug paraphernalia (my pipe). My judge was horrible. This is my first time ever even dealing with the law. I've always been a law abiding citizen (besides the fact I consume marijuana). He gave me $300 in fines and 12 months of random drug testing. I requested an attorney, and he asked me a lot of questions than said I didn't qualify for one... Is that allowed?
From your question, it appears you may have been sentenced already. I would hire a local criminal defense attorney to...
How to get packet for out of state DUI?
My fiance got a DUI in Lake Tahoe, CA over five years ago. All fines have been paid, and up to this point, we thought it had been taken care of. He went to renew his Utah license and California had put a hold on it due to some packets he had to fill out. We have attempted several times to get these 'packets' from Cali. They have told us twice it has been sent. We still have yet to receive them. How do we get them to actually send them? They are extremely rude and not helpful at all. We requested tracking for the packet and they denied us. We need to get his license in the state of Utah. HELP!!!

When and how does a dui case get thrown out
I passed the field soberity test, then the officer still insisted to take me in but didn't tell me what for, my vehicle was impounded. I refused the blood test because of several reasons but mainly because I didn't know you one couldn't so I'm still confused on why we are given an option, the officer was cynical with me and told me it was his first day on the job therefore I questioned his integrity and level of professionalism. Another reason I refused is because I questioned the cleanliness of the station vs. a hospital setting which was never offered to me. When the blood results came back they were absolutely negative for alcohol (zero) and negative for the substance heroin which was my DOC but had and have recieved treatment for this substance abuse. Puzzling I was positive for Methamphetamine and thc ?? I've not used meth nor remember ever smoking thc in the previous 30 day preluding?? The biggest injustice is that once I ever do get my license back the DMV has required to have a alcohol device in my vehicle for 5 years and I'm not even a drinker. I'm very passionate about drunk driving.. I had a dear cousin killed in alcohol related accident I 1993.
Call a local DUI attorney immediately in your area and cease posting anything else about your case.
What does it mean if my citation for dui arrest is unsigned?
I was arrested for dui, after passing field sobriety tests, I was asked to blow into breathalyzer machine which I did two times, the officer said before the third time she was giving me one last chance to do it right so I blew one more time the office got mad and immediately said she was arresting me and handcuffed me. The citation as a promise to appear was never signed by me the copy provided to me has no signature. I was then given a blood test performed by the arresting officer who took two vials of blood one contained white powder which she shook up mixing with my blood she then took a smaller vial of just blood she had me sign a vehicle inventory report which states one vial of blood was inventoried to which it also had a field for a inventory witness signature but there is no signature. Are any of these things grounds for dismissal.

I have a restricted drivers licence due to a 2nd dui in Utah where I reside. Can I drive in California without a breathalyzer?
My mother is almost 91 and lives in California. Can I drive her car there with no breathalyzer? She sometimes needs to be driven.
Not without the courts permission. It does not matter if it is her car, as it is your drivers license that would be...
3rd DUI charged as a misdemeanor
So I made a few mistakes and got a DUI a few years back. Fast forward to 2016 and I got 2 DUIs within 2 months. So the first one I got in 2016 which would be #2 I was charged within 10 days as a class B misdemeanor. I was in no hurry to plead guilty to the other one so I have successfully been able to stall for almost a year and a half by just filing waiver of my appearance to pre trial hearing then having my attorney asking for different motions etc. They finally charged me with the other DUI just now which happened around a year ago but would technically make #3 if I pled guilty to #2. Thing is they charged it as a class B misdemeanor. Lets say I am able to get court dates set up around the same time and just plead guilty to both and just not mention any information about the other DUI to each court. Would they be able to undo the guilty plea and recharge as a felony should they find out? I have 2 different attorneys representing me and feel its best if they just don't know so they don't have to say anything should the judge ask any questions. I figure if I can just plea to both around the same time to make it go away I might be able to not get a felony.
The court would not be able to undo your plea once it is made. Sounds like you've got a good strategy. Good luck....
