Arrested for DUI drugs/ pc 23152 (e) VC, but wasn't under the influence at all. What can I do?
Hello, Recently I was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs in San Diego, CA. I was on my home from a family dinner when I was stopped for having a light out on my vehicle. Officer asked if I had any alcohol that night, to which I replied truthfully. I had two beers at dinner about an hour and half before the traffic stop. Upon this admission, the officer had me exit my vehicle to conduct further investigation. At this point, I was extremely nervous because I had just remembered I had very small amount of marijuana in the vehicle. My nerves began to become visible, and the officer began to accuse me of being under the influence of drugs- specifically methamphetamines. Which came as a total shock to me. They found the small amount of marijuana and arrested me on the spot.
Immediately take a hair follicle and urine test at a clinic that does so. How long ago was this traffic stop. Maybe...
I got a Dui 3 years ago in CA but never went to the classes or paid the fine, how do I take care of this now?
I don't have any record other than my 1 DUI. I obtained my DUI in California 3 years ago but now live in New York. I want to take care of this but don't know where to begin. I had a monthly payment system set up but only paid the first few months and I never went to classes or went to do my court mandated community service. I am not in a financial position where I can hire a lawyer so I am looking for some guidance on how to do this on my own. Thank you for your time.
You'll need to retain a San Diego attorney to appear in court for you. The case is likely at warrant status.

What income factors play into whether I qualify for a public defender?
I got a DUI and blew a .13 at the jail. This is my first offense, no injuries or damages happened. I was on a small motorcycle and went wrong way down one way. One lawyer told me it is unlikely I'll get a wet and reckless and that I should use a public defender. How do I know if I qualify for one?
The anticipated outcome has nothing tondo with whether you qualify for a PD. It remains unlikely you'll ever get a "...
Is it possible to get a wet reckless after being convicted of a prior DUI?
What if it is a third offense? Can I get a wet reckless if I previously had two DUI (VC 23152(b)) convictions over the last two years.
Anything is possible but very unlikely. This is a 3rd DUI and you are facing 120 days of custody and possible...
If I am convicted of a VC 23152(b) and another misdemeanor offense two months later will I have a probation violation?
My DUI and other misdemeanor offense occurred very close in time and I just want to get the cases over with and not drag it out any longer. Will I have a probation violation if I plead guilty to the DUI and one month later plead guilty to the other offense?
If the second offense happened after you were sentenced on the first, yes.
