Drinking and getting caught?
I'm just wondering on where the police has jurisdiction/what extent they have. I want to try drinking for the first time, and I'm a minor. In the state of CA, what are the laws covering MIP? And intoxicated minors? How can I avoid a run in with the law when doing this?
Don't drink until you're 21. If your parents provide alcohol for you and you drink at home, that's one thing. Even "...
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
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...
What is the legal effect if my blood was drawn 3 hours after I was in an accident for DUI

Will a 2nd dui offense (under age drinking) be found out by my school (college)?
This is my second duo without any accident or traffic violations. I was pulled over for suspicion. I was pulled over in LA county for crossing 3 lanes because I almost missed the exit and was pulled over. I passed all sobriety tests, just blew a .14. I leave for school in Washington in 3 weeks right after my court date but I am trying to see if I can do work release and driving programs in Washington without serving jail time without my university finding out. I also turn 21 in a week and a half.
We have no idea if your school will find out. Anything is possible. Your primary focus should be hiring a lawyer to...
Can a governor pardon be given for a dui that happen 2 yrs ago?
Had a dui 2 yrs ago and I'm trying to get my DUI expunge plus I heard that if you get a pardon you can still serve jury duty. How long is the process to get expunge? Will employers realize I had a DUI after I expunge it?
Misdemeanor convictions don't have any impact on eligibility for jury service. A pardon seems unlikely.
When refused to take a Breathalyzer or blood test for a DUI stop what are the penalties and what to expect?
I was arrested for a DUI back in 2013 and was driving with a Breathalyzer in the car from previous DUI charge. I was with a passenger that was intoxicated when I was pulled over for reckless driving. I then was arrested for assumption of drinking because police smelled alcohol in the car. My car was impounded and i was taken to jail for 12 hours. I have a court date a month from now and i need professional advise.
Punishment for refusing a Breath test is state specific and you will have to check with a lawyer in California to see...
