My son got a ticket in 2012 for driving on a suspended license for a DUI in Shasta County California.
He never took any action and now he can not get his drivers license reinstated until he does. The ticket has been purged {what does that mean} does he have to go to Shasta County to clear this? Can it be taken care of in San Diego. Is there usually a fine or jail time for this offense?
Your son should go to DMV and find out why his license is suspended. Is it for failing to appear in court? Was he...
What evidence will a District Attorney need to convict someone of a DUI? Is just the BAC enough evidence?
Was in a single car accident, when fell asleep at the wheel. I blew a .05 BAC, I'm 18 years old and they are charging me with a DUI. I had a concussion and dont remember much, but they don't have me driving and I did no damage to anyone/anything. I've talked to another attorney and he said that the sobriety test will be invalid because of concussion.
Keep talking to more attorneys, but not here, in person. Beware of sales pitches. There are certainly arguments to...

RN charged with DUI. If charges are reduced to reckless driving, how will that affect my license?
I was pulled over going around a turnabout, and had drank 2-3 cups of beer, the last one being about 1.5 hours prior to driving. After passing the field sobriety test, I was asked to perform a breathalyzer, which resulted in 0.122%, and 2 minutes later 0.123%. The officers repeatedly commented that my cooperation was very appreciated, and would reflect positively on my court case. They also said my career would reflect on my penalties in a positive light. On our initial stop at a CHP outpost, they performed another breathalyzer, which resulted in 0.10%. The arresting officers said there was a chance the charges could be reduced to reckless driving. If that is the case, what's the impact, if any, of that on my nursing license?
It's really a question for a licensing attorney. My general understanding is the nursing board sees it as an alcohol-...
