Can my drivers' license record be updated after a dismissal of a DUI and a reduction in charges of a DUI down to reckless?
I was arrested for DUI; it was dismissed due to video evidence proving I wasn't driving (VC23152 A &B). Both were dismissed. DMV shows I have a DUI. Can this be corrected by the DMV? Three months later, I was arrested while in my apartment for DUI. I was packing my vehicle to go back into the field for training so my front door was open and the car door was open but I wasn't driving. The DA reduced the charges to reckless driving. The judge imposed AA classes, alcohol awareness classes and a fine. I had deployed to Iraq shortly after my arrest so the case had to be continued. When it was finally settled, my attorney told the DA I wasn't driving and there was no evidence. The DA said that I wasn't going to get away with 'nothing' so they reduced it down to a reckless driving charge (VC 23103 (A)). But DMV has it on my drivers' record as a DUI. How do I get my driving record cleaned up? It is hindering my career path. Thanks for any help.
You should contact your attorney. Generally, the DMV will consider a wet reckless the same as a DUI for purposes of...
Can my DUI citation be changed from misdemeanor to felony?
I was recently involved in an accident in which I was the only one injured. I was taken to the hospital where the officer was given a vial of my blood for testing. Though I was not arrested only given a citation which was marked misdemeanor so I'm due back in court on the court date appointed. Can this be changed to a felony at the time of my court date? My hospital record reads "acute alcohol intoxication"
Yes it can be charged as a Felony if someone other than you was injured. If not then it's probably going to be a...
What's usual for time in the drunk tank?
If I'm taken to the drink tank and it's plain to see I'm not intoxicated nor sobering up from any earlier drinking what's the usual amount of time they'll hold me for. Bottom line It's all part of the local police dislike for me. It's getting old, inconvient, and seriously stupid but they are the law right. No charges. Just the typical hold until sober.
It is generally up to the local law enforcement agency regarding how long they think they need to hold you until you...
When does a DUI fall off your driving record in California?
I was convicted of a DUI that occurred 11/2010. I just obtained an online Driver History Report through the CA DMV website. It lists convictions as "None", basically as if the DUI did not exist. My husband obtained his Driver History Report and his speeding ticket from 2014 shows in the convictions section. Has my DUI record somehow fallen off or does this Driver History Report only reflect recent convictions? I only ask because when applying for auto insurance, they ask about DUI convictions within 10 years. If my records do not show a conviction, am I obligated to announce my DUI to my auto insurance company? Thanks!
You should speak to a California attorney. However, here is a prior question on AVVO:
I have a court date for DUI
Hit a parked car due to black outs, I have a mengenioma. Got arrested for DUI. Passed the breath test that wasn't good enough, cops took me to get a blood test and arrested me. I got a ticket to appear in court then received a letter of court date changing the date three months after the first court date. Should I get an attorney
I'm assuming you did not have any alcohol or drugs in your system? If so, you probably don't need an attorney for the...
Should I alert the court of my recent DUI?
I am currently on probation for conviction of misdemeanor conspiracy to commit assault in San Francisco. My probation could be up in a year due to no further trouble with the law. However, I was arrested for a DUI in Alameda County. I was wondering if I should alert the San Francisco courts of my arrest in January or if I should wait until they find out?
Um, NO! It's not up to YOU to report yourself to the court. Give Attorney Michael Marowitz a call. He's in Marin....
