I was sentenced to 5 years of summary Probation in California .
This is unsupervised probation and I cannot break any laws (with the exception of minor traffic infractions) or I violate my probation. Can I move to another State without having to notify CA?

DUI charge. My ticket has on it: "23152 (A)\ VC DUI" and nothing else. Can I be later charged with 23152 (b)?
The nurse at the hospital said my BAC was .22 but I have seen no documentation to that effect. I had been knocked unconscious and had no (conscious) interface with the "arresting" officer (did not do a field sobriety test). I sustained a head injury that kept me in the hospital for 2 days. I then was allowed to freely leave the hospital. I was never at any time in custody or formally arrested. The last thing that I remember (evening of the "DUI") was trying to avoid a car that had swerved toward me ( I was trying to park my motorcyce along the curve at the time. I was staying at my friend's RV, all of 100 yds from where the mishap happened). I'm hoping for a deal with the DA's office (wet/reckless?). This would be considered a first offense DUI. The ".22" is what is problematic
The .22 is very problematic, because you are over .15 there is an enhancement. So, I really suggest contacting an...
Applying For 1650 Waiver Packet DMV form in California for a DUI
Applying For 1650 Waiver Packet DMV form in California for a DUI. I received a misdemeanor DUI in California. I've completed my MADD class, Public Work Service, and paid my fines. I dont have a probation officer, just cant get caught drinking and driving again. (which I wont do anymore) Only thing left to complete is my 1st conviction 9 month program. I haven't started that yet due to my loss of job and living situation. I already asked for an extension but the due date is coming soon. I've done my research and found this site. I wish to move to another state where I have family members who can help me get on my feet again. I wanted to know if i have to go to the judge first or can i just move there and will it automatically put a hold on my classes? What steps do i take? Can anyone help me out on this please?
The attorney's site that you reference answers all the questions that you pose here. The 1650 packet waives your right...
Forgot to attend MADD class for underage DUI. Is everything ruined?!
I was convicted of an underage DUI in January 2010 and had my license suspended for 1 year. The judge ordered me to attend DUI classes (education only, not the full course), MADD, and either do community service or pay the fine. I attended the DUI classes and payed my fines but yesterday I realized that I never attended the MADD class. I completely forgot about it! Is everything ruined? Am I going to jail? Will the judge allow me to reschedule my MADD appointment? I don't have money for an attorney and I know what I did was completely stupid... I have no idea what to do...
It depends on the terms of your sentencing. Often, you'll be given a completion date. Sometimes though, you're just...
How long does a suspension from illegal possession of alcohol (under 21) last on your record in CA?
I was under 21 and intoxicated and in possesssion of alcohol in the state of New Hamsphire. I paid a fine but had my license suspended without any written knowledge. This was in 2010. I did not find out until I renewed my license in 2014 that this had actually happened and it now appears on my record as a suspension from 2010-2014 when I had it reinstated. How long will this last on my record? Do I need to get it expunged/annulled?
If you are talking about your DMV record, or H6, there is no such thing as an expungement for a DMV record....
I am on probation for a felony DUI and want to use medicinal marijuana

You'll need to ask your probation officer and/or your attorney about this. Most likely, no.
