What happens after arrested for drunk in public after first DUI in CA?
Hi! In May I was arrested for my first DUI. I received no jail time, and instead was on 3 year non reporting probation and required to take the DUI class. A few weeks ago, I was arrested for a Drunk in Public. I spent the weekend in jail. I went before a judge on that Monday, and was released on bail . The prosecutors want to drop the drunk in public charge, but want to go after the probation violation. I have a court date in a few weeks and wanted to know what to expect. Since I spent 4 days in jail already ( my attorney told me that counted for 8) I just wanted to have the best idea of what exactly I am facing. Thank you.
The reason the D.A. wants to go after the Probation violation instead of the Drunk in Public charge, is because it is...
Would it be possible for me to get the record on my Driving history expunged?
I was arrested for DUI in California in July 2012 with BAC of 0.083% and 0.088%. The administrative hearing held by DMV upheld my suspension but the DA's office never filed the charges in court. DA's office has also provided me with a letter that they won't be filing charges. However, I see that the DUI record on DMV is impacting my Insurance payments.
You can not expunge a DMV result, only a criminal conviction. There are many insurance companies that cater to drives...

After receiving my DUI over a year ago, I did not surrender my license. Will this stop me from getting my CDL back?
I recieved a DUI in December of 2012. The case was dropped for insufficient evidence and my license that had previously been seized had been sent back to me. A few months later I was charged for that DUI, regardless of them dropping it previously. When trying to get an answer as to why it was dropped and reopened, they did not provide me with any reason. After taking care of my driver's classes and also my community service all that was left was to reinstate my license. For medical reasons I was not able to get it back. So I'm still in the process of lifting the medical suspension off my license. I did NOT surrender my license at any point for the DUI as I was given no paperwork instructing me to do so. The only way I found out was through google. This is my FIRST DUI and it says on the CA DMV website that I should have surrendered it. I'm stressed out about it and cannot get through to anyone who could possibly answer my question. My time is LONG passed due (could have gotten back in August 2015, but at the time there was the medical suspension)
I wouldn't sweat it. The judge should have ordered you to surrender your license, but at this point, it's unlikely...
