Can I get the records for the machine so I can ensure the charges are accurate? Is it legal not keep calibration docs on file?
I received a dui a few months ago and according to the breathalyzer I blew a 0.18 I have court this month and would like to ensure that the breathalyzer they used had been properly calibrated and done so within the specified time. I have been told by a friend that the officer in charge of calibration does not keep on top of the calibration nor do they keep records/official documentation of the breathalyzer machines

When can I get a restricted license after a 3rd DUI followed by a driving without a license?
My friend got his 3rd dui (within 10 years) about 2 years ago in California. During that time he did get a Driving Without a License (DWL) in another county. He just started to take care of it (did 30 days jail time and 120 on the ankle monitor). However, after being put on the monitor, he went to his court hearing for the DWL and was told he needed to serve jail time the following month even though he still had another month on the monitor. He spoke with his attorney about finding a solution, but was only told that each county wasn't correlating with each other, and that if he went to jail (for the DWL offense), his ankle monitor would be cut off and he would have to restart his jail time for the original DUI. So he kept the monitor on and didn't go to jail. He's been paying the fine for the DWL, but what should he expect as punishment for not turning himself in? When will he be able to get a restricted license?
Please encourage your "friend" to visit the nearest DMV and ask them about his license.

What is the process of sealing a PC 647(F) (Drunk in public)?
I was booked, processed, and released. No charges filed. I understand i can file a petition for factual innocence to get it sealed. I'm sure it happens to a lot of people to be put in the drunk tank. Has any lawyers successfully gotten it sealed with the petition? What steps should be taken? Please advise.
if no charges were filed and you are clear of the statute of limitations you qualify. Yes they can be granted. Contact...
Can I fight my suspended license?
A few months ago I received an underage dui. Today my lawyer told me that the judge decided to drop the charges but my license is still suspended. I would like my license back because the dui cost me my enlistment contract with the air force and as long as my license is suspended the dui is on record keeping me from re enlisting. It also prevents me from getting employment while I'm here. I'm tired of mooching of my mom and not being able to do anything. Is it still possible to fight the suspension even though it's been several months since the dui? I'm in California by the way

Can past dui's affect child custody
I am currently going through a tough Child custody battle with my ex-wife. She has brought up past dui convictions from over 10 years ago, trying to prove i am an unfit, unreliable parent.
This is a question better suited for a family law attorney.
Bench warrant for an IID exemption I was approved for?
I was required to install an IID via notice January 13th after a court ruling. I have no vehicle and submitted on the 30th day (letter to DMV postmarked Feb 13th, I ensured this), and the following month I was denied and asked for a statement that I don't have the vehicle anymore. I submitted this back to them, and was approved March27th. However on my B. Warrant the dmv sent notice to the courts on March 15th that I failed to file for the IID and violated my probation, and now have the B. Warrant issued without bail. What do I do? It is worth noting that I have my approval notice, but cannot find my first denial notice where they requested more information for approval. Will the DMV give me some kind of proof they requested the statement? And if I go to the courts will I be held?
Contact your attorney and go to court with him or her and the IID approval document Our courts are not perfect; they...
