What does it mean when on my CA DMV Driving record it says "Action Ended: 12-08-12" after a violation?
This notation appears after License suspension notices and a failure to appear notice, and NEG OP PROOF REQ Notice.
Most likely that's when the suspension ended.
Does Title 17 cover PAS tests?
I read online that a policeman has to observe you for fifteen minutes before he breath tests you in a DUI through something called Title 17. I got pulled over and a cop breath tested me in like five minutes after making me walk the line. Can he do that? Apparently, I blew .105 or something. I made them take me for a blood draw, hoping my blood alcohol would go down.
Yes it does. It it recommended that you have counsel to represent you at the DMV and at court to make that part of your...
I was arrested for DUI and the case was dismissed. I spent a day in Jail and not given a phone call while in jail. Dismissed
I was in the parking lot of the complex. My truck slipped into drive and crashed into a sign post in the yard area. The police did a sobriety check 3 times and determined that I was incapacitated and arrested me. After a day in jail, I was released on my on reconizance and sent home. A court date was set and I arrived to be told that there was no evidence and dismissed the case. I want to see if there is anything I can do to prevent this from happening to another in the same situation. The police did not take a blood test or urine. They were aware that I have Peripheral Neuropathy and unsteady on my feet for the duration of their investigation. The police called a second opinion and arrested me when my family didnt come to my aid.
Get a letter from your neurologist and keep it in your car. If you're unsteady on your feet, you may be questioned and...
3 arrests in 2 months, all drug possession, 1 DUI. Would it keep me out of jail if I entered myself into a private rehab treatm
treatment center right away? I signed a harvey waiver with a 3 1/2 year prison term
Possibly. You certainly can try, but I doubt it, as the judges may be worried about the example it sets for others who...
Will an FBI background check reveal a dui/possession diversion?
I want to join the armed services with a secret clearance requirement. The problem is that I have a dui (marijuana)/poss (marijuana) diversion. This took place in Oregon but I live in California. At that specific time I was going to college in Washington. Will this be likely to show up on an FBI background check?
If you were fingerprinted and photographed following the arrest, most likely.
What can i do in order to do my dui classes since its been 2 years since i was suppost to do them?

If your dui conviction was in 2009, then it's extremely likely that the court is going to find you in violation of your...
DUI - Antidepressant and alcohol reaction.
I was in Marin County doing wine tasting and I had a bad reaction to drinking wine (I am on the anti depressant Zoloft) and blacked out completely. I drove off in a car (which I NEVER would do after drinking) and was told by the police that I was very beligerent (which is also not me at all.) I do not remember the hours before or after my arrest. All I can remember is being in the back of the squad car, crying, and telling the officer that we could not leave because my fiance had driven me there and we could not leave him (apparently I believed that he was driving, not me.) This has never happened before I did not know that it could. My BAU was above the legal limit -- but I never indended to drive as my boyfriend was the designated driver. What do I do now?
What do you do now? Call an experienced DUI attorney. You have a very complicated issue that needs personal attention,...
