How can I get my dui expunged?
I got a DUI back in 2009, I hired a lawyer and he got it dropped to a wet wreck less. In the DMV system it still shows a a DUI. How can I get this taken off my driving and criminal record if possible.
You cannot have it removed from your DMV driving history nor your criminal record. You may need to submit certified...
Will I get charged with a DUI?
This past weekend I got pretty drunk on a college campus with some friends. I got in my car (fully intending NOT to drive), turned it on, and warmed it up so I could go to sleep easier. A police officer came by and I got out of the car and started talking with him. He definitely knew that I was drunk but didn't breathalyze me or do any other sobriety tests. I asked him if he was going to write me up for anything but he said no since I wasn't doing anything wrong. He wrote down my information and then let me go. My question is will I get any unpleasant mail/notices regarding a DUI? While I wasn't driving I know I can still be charged with one because I was "operating" a car.
California is a "driving" state with limited exceptions to that element. You were not driving, your license was not...

What to do when you are wrongfully convicted of a DUI?
So a couple months ago my boyfriend was driving me to work, in the car was him (the driver), me the front passenger, and two of his friends in the back seat. I was running late so my boyfriend was speeding. We got pulled over and the officer took my boyfriends license, the registration to the car and the proof of insurance back to his car. The officer then comes back and asks my boyfriend to step out of the car. I could see in the rear view mirror that they were just talking. When my boyfriend came back to the car he told us that the officer just wanted to know why my boyfriend had not mentioned that he was on probation, he gave him a citation for speeding and we were on our way. My boyfriend has not paid his speeding ticket but yesterday he had court (not for the speeding ticket) and the judge brought up the speeding ticket and said that he had violated his probation by driving under the influence. Now, his new job is terminating him for "lying" on his application and not admitting to his convictions. So my question is: can he be terminated for being wrongfully accused? Also, how is this possible? I was there with my boyfriend during the time he got pulled over.
I'm confused. Is your question about a DUI or a speeding ticket? A person can be fired for almost any reason at all...
What can I do for an inadvertent dui
Driving home from work, I took a drink of my soda I'd brought from home, only to realize it was the one I used to make a run and coke. I pulled over to the shoulder. A few minutes later a CHP officer stopped to make sure I was alright. DUI. Is there any defense against that?
A "drink" of a rum and coke, no matter how strong won't make you .08 or above, you shouldn't have anything to worry...
How can i get my license back after a dui?
got a dui 8 years ago and did jail time in lieu of paying fines and all that jazz. court judge dismissed everything. dmv now wants me to do everything the court judge told me to do (dui classes, sr-22, get insurance BEFORE i can get my license, etc). i have been unemployed since i received my dui and can't pay for what the dmv wants me to do. i can't afford to pay for anything the dmv wants me to do because i'm unemployed. i have been unemployed because i don't have the proper transportation to get to a job. what can i do to avoid paying for anything and just get my license/life back? i have not been in any legal trouble since. i just want to be a normal productive human in society again.
If you can't afford the classes, etc what makes you believe that you can afford a car, gas and maintenance. That costs...
Are the elements of a DUI in California the same as a DUI in Wisconsin?
The Superior Court of California requested that I go to the DMV office and get my valid drivers licence. Unfortunately i was informed by the DMV that i can't get one due to a 2nd DUI charge in Wisconsin. In 2000 i got a DUI in California and was sentenced a first offenders program that I completed. 15 yrs. later i was stopped for driving a friend home who was intoxicated,and given a ticket for not having my drivers license on my person while driving.
You'll have to take the 18 month course. You were suppose to do it in 2000, you just didn't notify dmv / the court.
