What are my chances of getting a decent public defender for a 1st time DUI in the city of Monterey Park, CA.
I was involved in a traffic accident 4 years ago. I had cut all ties to my family which is where the Sheriff's have been looking for me. I have recently started speaking to my family again and was informed that there is a warrant out for my arrest. I never received a ticket or citation when the accident happened and no blood work or urine test was done. My family was informed that due to the fact that there was a 17 year old passenger in the car I was being charged with child endangerment. I am currently unemployed and have no funds to pay for a lawyer. Most of the jobs I have tried to apply for require a driver's license so I need to get this big mistake resolved. Should I turn myself in and cross my fingers that I get a public defender that will fight for me?

Projected Release date
My boyfriend was sentenced to State Prison for 16 months due to his fifth time DUI within 10 years. When I search at the LA County Sheriffs, they state "SP3" which means his paper is in process to Prison, but under the heading "RELEASE", they state the projected release date is 12/12/2009. Does that mean he will be release from state prison on that date? He was sent to jail on 8/21/2009, how come suddenly he can be released so early? Should he be in state prison for at least half of the sentence, i.e. 8 months? Thanks in advance for your advice!
Did he do anytime in county jail while waiting for the case to resolve? Good luck with the situation. Matthew...
Dui arrest?
I was pulled over a night after drinking with some friends which I shouldn't had done. I was a minor at that point. I got pulled over and the officer asked me if I was drinking. They did some test afterward and issue me a citation ticket and a form that says I was drinking under age. They then asked me if someone was nearby to pick me up since I couldn't drive, and I said yes. Then when the person arrive, I was free to go. Does this count as a arrest and will it show in my record? I Wasn't taken down to the station and they didn't call my parents, but will this still count as a arrest? Another thing is that a mail was send after a few days to my house from the CHP saying that I was arrested. But I wasn't taken to custody and no picture or finger were taken. does still count as an arrest?
Is CHP California Highway Patrol? Do you have a court date?

My license was suspended when I got a DUI. How bad will my charges be if I was only cited for the DUI.
I was given a DUI for blowing a .10. My license was already suspended without me knowing apparently since 2013. I had my license on me at the time. What can I do to minimize my charges? This is my first DUI and I have no record of anything this severe.
First you need to consult with an experienced DUI lawyer. The suspended license may not be a problem. In order to prove...
