Who can clear an out of state travel/prison visit request if CA doesn't give you a DUI probation officer,but you're on probation
I was convicted of a DUI last year and so I am on 2 or 3 year "probation". However, in the state of CA, the court doesn't assign a probation officer. I have to travel out of state next month and also want to get myself cleared to go see someone in prison. Do I have to go back to the courthouse to get these two requests signed off?

DUI! Jail time instead of community service in Los Angeles Questions...
Hello, I got a first time DUI in Los Angeles County in 2015. I've completed everything except for my 120 hours of community service. The clerk gave me a 3 month extension, but now I want to convert it into jail time. My question is, will the judge be amenable to this? Also, do I have any choice as far as when I will be doing my "time?" I'm going in front of the Judge tomorrow...will the cuff me right then and there? Can I choose to go to jail during the week as opposed to weekend(when I'm not sure I can take time off for work? Thanks in advance for any responses!

My 20 year old got a 21340 infraction citation here in CA. His license was taken by the CHP and he was issued a temp. No other offenses were listed on the citation. I know we need to schedule a DMV hearing, but do we need an attorney, or can we deal with this on our own?
He can either handle it on his own or hire an attorney. He's looking at a 1 year suspension of his license so its good...
How much longer will she been in twin towers if she has been accepted for house arrest?
My sister turned herself in on June,22nd 2015 and is now booked in Twin Towers , Los Angeles CA. her release date is set for Oct 19, 2015. While in there she filled out the paper work to get on house arrest and she was qualified. Somebody has already called asking if she can stay with me while being placed in it and I told them "YES". He asked a few more questions and that was it. He also advised me it would take 4-5 business days for the paperwork to be processed. And so far its been 1 week. and she is still not out. What's taking so long? Should I be worried? Who can I contact? The operator # for Twin Towers they have no information to provide me but just the overall release date. They are no help!!!! Went in for 3rd DUI and added time for something else.
Be patient. It's summer time and lots of people are on vacation, so things slow down. It really hasn't been that long....
IS my license still suspended if it was returned to me the night of my DUI? Second blow was .07 once at station and i released.
Had 2 beer's. Blew a .085 was not taken to jail due to heart condition and multiple medical problems. Am not coordinated due to lack of motor skills and health issues. CHP officers were very polite and understanding to my health issues. CHP took me to the station to fill out paperwork and blow again. Blew a .07 at the station and had my license then returned to me and was released to a friend who drove me home in my car that was not impounded. I am on multiple anticoagulants and blood thinners as well as anxiety medication. I am approved by doctors to enjoy a alcohol on occasion. Confused about payments that i need to make at the DMV and what i need to apply for a license ? Live far from work and lot's of doctors appointments as well as weekly blood tests
It sounds like at this point your license is valid. You should contact an attorney or Mandatory Actions in Sacramento...
