Regarding DUI Expungement
I was arrested for DUI in October of 2011 in Placentia and convicted in August of 2012. Since the time of my arrest I have not broken any laws or been involved in any criminal activity. Additionally, I have not violated any of my summary probation terms (which I was placed on for three years) and have completed all court-related tasks (e.g. MADD panel, DUI courses, fees, etc.). What is the likelihood of obtaining early summary probation release and then expungement? I'm an EMT and looking to move forward with my career and would rather show an expunged DUI on my record than a current one. In advance, thank you for your input.
You are not likely to get early termination in a DUI case, basically because it's against public policy. You can...
I never received the DS-367 form at the time of my DUI and was only cited for SECTION 23152 (a). Do I still contact the DMV?
The officer had crossed out VEHICLE CODE SECTION 23152 (b) off of the citation and never took me to be booked but allowed me to be picked up from the station.

I received two DUI's in one month time. I have been sentenced to 75 days of jail but in process of applying for Home Arrest. I was told to get a interlock device on my vehicle for 1 year.

I'm assuming you should install it after the suspension but I could be wrong. It is possible to operate a vehicle, say...
2 dui's in less than a month. Please advice me on what options I have and what may happen
I am 23 years old. The first time i blew .12 when i was pulled over and blew .12 at jail an hour later. 3 weeks later I was pulled over again. I did a breath test again on the spot and a blood test later in the jail. I dont know what my BAC was the second time. I was wondering if I will have to face jail time and If so is there anyway possible to avoid it by doing some sort of house arrest or work program?? I know what I did is absolutely moronic and Im scared out of my mind. I am going to start attending Alcoholics Anonymous. Should I tell the judge this to show that Im trying to fix my problem?? I really hope it is not a long sentence because if so I will lose both my jobs and get kicked out of school....
It is best to consult with a DUI defense attorney in person. Many offer free consultations.
