I want to know what court fees can be waived in criminal court. I went to court for DUI. The judge offered 2 days in jail or AWP program and a fine of $1800 plus go to DUI class for 3 months ($580) plus $250 to DMV. I want to know would I qualify for wett reckless? Alcohol level was .11% so I'm told. The problem is that I cannot afford any of this. I wasn't aware that I had to pay a $50 processing fee to see a public defender. I am on unemployment not by choice and I support 7 people on it. Can a lawyer or PD reduce the fees? I know they cannot reduce or waive the fees for DUI class. $1800 is a bit much and I cannot begin to make payment arrangements. Is there another way? Because I stated I couldn't pay the fees now I have to see a public defender. Will the judge offer still stand?
You did a good thing by not taking the judge's offer. You should never plead guilty to anything before an attorney has...
Does it matter how you get pulled over for a DUI? The initial charge was for not having a license plate on the front of my car.
There were cops posted nearby. After leaving the nightclub, I was taking a friend to his car which was parked in the same parking lot as the post office. As we were leaving the club and driving to the post office parking lot, we pulled into the driveway of the post office. While there, we decided to check our mail. There was a cop who was already tailing and profiling someone else before deciding to come after us. He went around the roundabout (making a u-turn) and decides to pull in the parking lot. The cop initially said he pulled us over because he thought we were avoiding him and then said for not having a license plate in front of vehicle. It was in the trunk because I didn't have screws. So the cop asks if we'd been drinking. Yes we had. Then suddenly the initial ticket was changed.
The fact that there was no license plate is enough probable cause to pull you over. No whether he had enough probable...

It depends. If the judge revoked your probation because you failed to complete the classes, then the warrant could...
I got a dui when I was 17. And it was .8 I pled guilty and the judge told me to go to dui classes. I can't afford it so I didn't go. And they issued a bench warrant. I went to court and the judge said to serve 10 days and do the glasses or do community service and the dui classes but I never went to neither of them because I did not have the money nore an id. Now I was stopped by law enforcement and went to jail for a day and let me out to tell me I have court a month later. What will the judge do ? I am now 22 and have not ever got a ffeloy.
Yes, if you fail to pay. However, you can set up a payment plan. Make sure you make timely payments or you will be in...
I was charged with DUI and my chemical test read .18 the officer let me contact a friend for a ride and didn't impound my vehicle.

On the night of July 4th 2014 my family and I were having a family bbq lighting fireworks , I understood that some of the fire works we possessed were in fact not legal.Due to that fact we attracted Modesto police . There were so many of us in the front yard /street including kids. I felt that I was singled out of the crowd and pulled to the side and then arrested for public intoxication. I was never breathalized or had blood drawn from me that night, but was sighted and released the next day. Now I have a court date in a county that I am not even from. I do not want to take any kind of charge and I am willing to fight it in any way. I did have a few beers and was not a threat to anyone or myself .
It really depends on a lot of factors but you may be able to do some type of diversion program to earn a dismissal. It...

Parked appropriately. Drunk driver in parking lot rolled his car and hit mine. Hit and run. Drunk lives in apartment building.
The only way apartment can be liable is if they were negligent. It's hard to tell based on your facts how the apartment...
