Can I be charged for a DUI when I blew a .06 twice at the station?
I went to had a few drinks at 5pm, left at 11 pm and drove but ran out of gas. Pulled over on the side of the fwy, and started walking to get gas. CHP pulled up to help, took me to get gas and when I got back to my car, he asked me if I had drinks. I told him yes, but earlier that evening. He called backup, then 2 more officers came. One officer had me do the field test, which I believe I should have passed. He had me do the breathalyzer, which came up 0.82, then arrested me. They drove my car off the freeway and took me to the station. I blew 0.06 twice at station. He gave me my license and let someone pick up after a few hours. The ticket he gave me was for driving while using a cell phone, which I signed but I received a notice of correction in mail. What is the odds of DA prosecuting?
I am not sure about CA law, but in KY, the PBT (where you blew a 0.82) is inadmissible in court. Sounds like it is the...

A civilian charged with DUI on military base, legal authority in state?
I was dropping a friend off at a military base, when I was assaulted by my passenger, swerved due to being hit, I pulled over. The MPs pulled up immediately after, pulled me from my car and sat me on the curb. They performed a breathalyzer test (handheld) and then charged me with DUI and Assault. They did NOT perform a field sobriety test, blood/urine/breathalyzer when back at station. Though the procedure was not proper for the state of CA, what is the affect on my driving status, and what would be my best course of action. I cannot lose my license, I run my own company as a mobile mechanic and I would lose EVERYTHING. Please help, thank you. Robert G.

If I missed a court date yesterday and call tomorrow, will I be able to get another court date over the phone?
I missed a court date that was given to me over a year ago. It is to evaluate my income to start paying off court fines. I completely forgot about it and realized today I was to be in court @ 8:30 am. My question is: Will I be able to talk to the clerks office (over the phone) and get a new court date. It is far away from where I live and I was hoping to get a new date with out having to go all the way there? I would call now but its after hours now and Im worried about a warrant for my arrest. I'm really hoping to be able to get another date by calling. Do you know if that is possible or if I have to show in person? I've never missed a court date before< so its not like I have a history of this. It was a public intoxication charge..
When you didn't show up, the court probably issued a bench warrant. Now, you have to go to court to clear the warrant....
When my son was under age 18, he was charged with VC 23140. After he turns 18 will it show up on a DOJ livescan report?
The charge was an infraction and I checked with the probation department to verify that he in fact does not have any probation record and he also never had a probation officer. He is 18 and will be getting a Livescan DOJ fingerprint clearance done. I wanted to make sure that this will not show up.
It is an infraction so it should not show up. To be sure your son may request that his juvenile records be sealed....
