DWI Probation problems?
I was charged with a DWI in April. I pleaded 894 with the city attorney and was sentenced to community service, AA meetings, MADD and Driving Class. However of these I have only completed the AA meetings and Community Service. I Have a full time job, but I am not driving and it gas been very hard to even achieve these. The MADD panels in my area have all passed. I am trying to find a driving school, but my court date is in a week. Will I be going to jail? Can I request probation extension to just finish these classes? I am really worried about my court date. My probation officer has not really communicated with me at all either.
Do your best to get everything completed and be able to prove it.

Can I obtain a hardship license in LA with a DWAI in CO?
I received a DWAI in CO back in March, and the CO suspension period is 60 days before becoming eligible for early reinstatement, which I served from May to July. I have not filed for early reinstatement in CO because it "requires" being a citizen of CO for 2 years. I am planning on moving to Louisiana very shortly, and was wondering if I can obtain a hardship license in the state of Louisiana, as I have now served 4 months with no license, and completed my CO suspension and eligible for early reinstatement.
Have you even asked them in LA? That would be a good place to start.
So I can be convicted of DWI even though there is no forensic/scientific evidence that I was ever under the influence?
Officer pulled me over asked me if I was under the influence of anything I said yes. A muscle Relaxer taken after a long days work. No field sobriety test given, and the ticket I was given later said the officers dashboard camera was off. Officer forced me to go to ER against my will since I have no insurance. Leaving the ER the officer cuffed me and threw me in his State police SUV, then he proceeded to conduct a violent search which involved slamming me against his car multiple times and tearing my clothes apart looking for drugs I suppose. Blood was never drawn, urine sample never taken nothing. So how can I be convicted if there is no proof I had drugs in my system. I could have made it all up for all he knows. Such an unjust world
Without any forensic evidence, a DWI/DUI can still be based on the observations of the officer. Those combined with...
Moved out of California before completing my 18 month dui program.
In 2010 I plead no contest to my 2nd Dui. I completed my jail time, paid my fines, and had about half of my classes completed. I ended up having to move out of state very abrubtly due to employment issues. New Orleans does not offer any type of classes. I have been going to AA when I can, and a group therapy session.. I have no plans to return to California, but I would like to finally pay my respects to the court and get this resolved. What are my options?
First, you need to hire an attorney to go into the court and recall a the bench warrant for failure to do the SB38...
In LA, can a 50cc motorbike or scooter be driven while having suspended license (D.U.I.)? Thank you for your time.
I believe legally, that a 50cc can't be driven on L.A. roads. Please clarify this loophole in the law. Thank you.
I see no one on avvo has answered your question. Consider calling a local LA DUI lawyer for a free consult.
