DUI...Upcoming Court..DUI Conviction
I was arrested on 7/15 for DUI, the arresting officer took a breathalyzer sample even tho I told him I didn't trust breathalyzer results and wanted to do blood test. He took me to ER to get a sample of my blood. I was released the next day on OR. I went to my arraignment on 8/7 and the judge remanded me to jail because the DA was using preliminary breathalyzer results. The blood results are still not in as of today and I have court tomorrow. Can I be convicted based on preliminary breathalyzer result? or will they have to wait for blood results? how long does that typically take?
I am confused. Were you released from jail on the 16 and reincarcerated on August 7th. Are you still in jail? Is this...
DUI prescription medication CA
So I got 2 DUI's while under the influence of prescription medication in my personal vehicle. I have a CDL which they are saying is suspended for life. Is there anyway to fight this as my Dr wrote a letter stating I was able to drive at the time and no longer on medication.
It sounds like you have been convicted twice? If that's correct, then maybe the DMV is correct, depending on your...
Expunge DUI
7 years ago I was charged with DUI how can I expunge my record?
Technically in CA you can't. Under the penal code you can change your plea to not guilty. See 1203.4
Extension for signing up to a DUI class?
I got a DUI a month ago. It was reduced to a Wet Reckless and I was ordered to pay a fine and register for a 1st time DUI offender program. I was told I had to enroll by 8/14/2015. So I tried to call on the 14th which was a Friday, and it turns out there only open Monday-Thurseday. So I called on Monday (8/17/15) and they told me I couldn't enroll since I missed the date. I explained what happened and how they were closed on the 14th. They asked me when my last court date was and I told them it was on the 6th. They said it's weird that I was only given a week to enroll cause everyone is usually given 21 days. They told me to go to court and ask for an extension until the 1st since that's when the next enrollment begins. Are there gonna be a negative consequences when I go to court to ask?
The judge and the DA won't be happy but probably not. Give your attorney a call.
DUI police report
DUI with accident the police report says I blew .092% and blood test says .10%. Dmv phone hearing is in 19 days and still haven't had arraignment for court yet. The attorney who I talked to pretty much said my only hope is that there is a mistake in the paperwork. really don't have much money right now and he wants to charge $9000 to do the whole case. Another attorney I talked to said he can do the dmv hearing for a certain price and handle the court case for more. Should I even waste my time with the dmv hearing it sounds like my chances are slim to win I believe he said a 16% chance
There are many different factors that if present could help you in your case, mistakes in the paperwork is just one....
Out of State DUI
I have a CDL A license in California, and I got a DUI in Nevada November of last year. Its August of this year and my license has never been suspended. My understanding is that my criminal case and my DMV case are 2 separate cases. My question is should I be worried that my license will get suspended at some arbitrary point in the future?
Of course you should be worried you license will be suspended at some point in the future. What happened with the...
Can I get both DUI convictions expunged?
On May 4th of 2013 I was pulled over for a DUI and soon after on October 10th of the same year I received a second DUI. My lawyer was able to get me to plea guilty as a first time offender on both cases by settling both on the same day within hours of each other. Neither county was aware of a second arrest. We first plead guilty in Alameda County and then drove to Contra Costa County to settle the other case later that day. I have complied with all my probation requirements (Payed all my fees, completed all programs, etc.) and was wondering if I can get both convictions expunged. My lawyer mentioned that technically I didn't comply with my Alameda county probation because we settled the Contra Costa offense later that same day. Please advice?
You will have to be off probation but you can try. The worst they can say is no. If you are still on probation it may...
