DUI expungement
In 2007 when I was 18 I got a DUI in CA. It was the first time I had been in trouble and I haven't been in trouble since. I plead no contest to 1) 23152(a) VC M 2) 23152(b) VC M and then it says ct 1 was dismissed. I received 3 years of unsupervised probations and 3 months of alcohol classes which were all completed. I wanted to see about getting my DUI expunged, I printed forms CR-180 and MC-031. I now live in Oregon so I wanted to ask if this is something I will be able to do from up here and without a lawyer? Thank you in advance for your help!

Do I have to pay DUI fees from 1995 if I can't prove that I paid it? Is there a statute of limitations on this?
I got a DUI back in 1995 and I completed my classes and paid the fees and got my license back. Recently I got a demand for payment from Ventura Superior Court, I contacted them and explained that I paid them and got my license reinstated. I don't have any receipts from 20 years ago and my bank doesn't have statements from 1995 so I have no way of proving that I paid it, other than my valid California driver's license.
I think that this is more able to be answered by a criminal defense attorney
Should I get a DUI lawyer? Not sure it'd be worth my while with a 0.18 bac
Driving home from bar (St. Patrick's night), the light just before reaching house had turned yellow. I chose to take my chances and go through. Immediately after crossing the line, light turned red. I was pulled over within half a block. The officer did not care for "my attitude", asked that I step out of car. I completed 2 separate field sobriety tests by both officers. I'm then told I'd have to perform a breathalyser/blood test. I opted for breathalyser. This test was given SEVERAL times, due to accusations of my breathing in not out (this was not at all the case). They said I'd be forced to give blood if I didn't comply, so I then requested a blood test; they responded that wasn't necessary if I complied. Finally, a BAC of 0.18 was reached. I was arrested, without mention of charges.
You may have a defense, particularly as it pertains to the lawfulness of the initial stop. If you entered the...
14601.2(A) effecting unsupervised probation?
My sister is an idiot. She was convicted of a DUI in January. In June she was arrested and charged with the following: M VC14601.2(A) Drive W/License Suspended For Drunk Driving I VC16028(A) Fail To Provide Evidence Financial Responsibility M PC166(A)(4) Contempt Of Court:Disobey Court Order/Process She blew off her court date in September and now there's a bench warrant issued for her. My question is, if she just lets the bench warrant hang like so many people do, will it effect the fact that her unsupervised probation is up in January?
Count on it. That may well trigger her being picked up on the bench warrant. She needs a lawyer and perhaps some...
