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?
If you can’t afford a private attorney you need get a public defender. You do not want to handle this case on your own....
How do I get a restricted license after I have been convicted of a DUI
I have been convicted of a DUI and I was able to get a grant for a restricted license by the superior court, however I am underage (19) and wanted to know where I am suppose to go from here in order to obtain my restricted license. Do I still need to file another petition to the DMV?

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...

Out of State DUI
I have a CDL A license in California, and I got a DUI in Nevada November of last year. Its August of this year and my license has never been suspended. My understanding is that my criminal case and my DMV case are 2 separate cases. My question is should I be worried that my license will get suspended at some arbitrary point in the future?
Of course you should be worried you license will be suspended at some point in the future. What happened with the...
What is the legal effect if my blood was drawn 3 hours after I was in an accident for DUI
I was reading that this time lag will create a problem for the DA or the DMV. Is that true?
It might create a "problem" but then again, maybe not. Quit reading and get into an attorney's office for an actual...
Will a 2nd dui offense (under age drinking) be found out by my school (college)?
This is my second duo without any accident or traffic violations. I was pulled over for suspicion. I was pulled over in LA county for crossing 3 lanes because I almost missed the exit and was pulled over. I passed all sobriety tests, just blew a .14. I leave for school in Washington in 3 weeks right after my court date but I am trying to see if I can do work release and driving programs in Washington without serving jail time without my university finding out. I also turn 21 in a week and a half.
We have no idea if your school will find out. Anything is possible. Your primary focus should be hiring a lawyer to...
