Second dui with prior felony dui in California
I was charged with a first dui, open container and a red light violation in Carson City,NV and bailed out on these three misdemeanor charges. I have one prior dui that was a Felony in California which I completed all probation, etc and was five years ago. I am worried the DA will raise my charges when I go to court to a Felony. Is this true and what kind of felony would it be? Also is it guaranteed prison time?
Under Nevada's "once a felon always a felon" statute, you could be charged with a felony DUI. Under that statute, it...

Arrested for DUI but not given citation.
Yesterday I got pulled over for speeding, after speaking with the officer I was given a field sobriety test which I failed. I then blew in the breathalyzer and failed that test. I was taken down to the jail, finger printed, and blood was drawn. The jail refused to accept me because of a large laceration over my eye, my arresting officer then took me to the hospital for stitches. She randomly left during the procedure, and didn't give me any citation, court date information, or promise to appear. Are the cops going to serve me through the mail?
Since you went through booking already, hopefully, that is what will happen. You should receive a summons in the mail...
Can a 3rd offense DUI be reduced to a second misdemeanor DUI with requirements? Just wondering if during the plea bargain if attorneys can fight for this. Thank you :) if so how often does this happen?

I was charged with 3rd dui felony that was a plea changed to felony reckless driving. Was ordered to do probation aND my cancer
Returned. Have not contacted probation office at all as I have been traveling back n forth to California for medical treatment. Has been a complete nightmare being my parents are in their 80's and I am extremely ill! Paid 7,500 for an attorney and I don't know what to expect in court. Been too busy trying to save my life. Is there still hope I won't go to prison as I didn't get in an accident or anything and should not have been convicted in the first place? Would I be better off going in to speak with the Judge personally? Please help thank you and God Bless us all.
Sorry to hear about your health. I would strongly urge that you contact your probation officer ASAP so that you can...
Do I need a gaming attorney? I was intoxicated while gambling.
I had a few drinks at the bar at the airport. I few drinks on the plane, and a bottle of champagne at the casinos hotel. I was served more alcohol while playing at the tables and was beyond drunk that I could not count my chips. I only stayed because a casino host pressured me into playing a time minimum. I even signed the wrong part of my card with a sharpie at the cage while cashing a check they saw I was drunk and laughed. I still played and was making irrational bets, and they started serving me alcohol by doubles. 2 beers at a time. I was severely intoxicated from the moment I arrived at the tables and casino staff were aware. They pounded more alcohol on me and I ended up losing 25 thousand dollars.
It goes without saying that drinking and gambling have gone hand-in-hand in Las Vegas for the better part of a century....
Moved to Carson City from CA. Have CA DMV-mandated Mandatory Action classes. How do I get NV License?
I am asking on behalf of my GF. Due to a second DUI (over 2 years ago), CA Mandatory Action requires her to complete classes in CA. She has not completed these. Important note: This is not court ordered, this is required by CA DMV. During this time she has had a CA restricted license that only allows her to drive to work and classes. She now lives in Carson City. NV DMV says CA needs to lift the hold on her license before they will issue a NV license. What can she do so she can get a NV license? Is there some procedure for this? (side note: CA mandatory action is one of the most difficult state offices you will ever have the displeasure of working with - it can take days to reach them on the phone)
Unfortunately the only thing she can do is complete her requirements from the CA DMV.
