Santa Rosa Law

Do you think i can get the dui dismissed and the hit and run handled by my insurance in there court ?
i am charged with 23152 vc-dui [m] and 20002(a)vc-hit and run [m] no breath blood or urine tests performed on me and there are mistakes on where and when the accident happened also the date I'm to appear is 3/23/2015 on the ticket
There must be more to the story. It's never safe to assume a DUI will be dismissed. Retain an attorney. Be sure to...
What happens when a person is cited for a dui and the DA has lost the blood test results?
This is my second dui citation. It's been 3 months since my test results were missing. I appeared at every court date. Now I have been placed on probation without an arraignment. I have an alcohol ankle bracelet that is very painful. I am restricted from driving, must report to probation, and subject to warrantless searches and seizures. Further, I am subjected to random drug testing. Is this constitutional?
It seems like part of your story is missing... Did you plead guilty to a crime that required all of the things that...
Can I fire my public defender who is obviously over worked and request a state appointed attorney?
My public defender is not serving me well. She did not even remember me. This is my second DUI case. The offer from the DA, I feel, is throwing the book at me, so to speak. 23 days in jail. no alcohol whatsoever for three years, random search and seizure, random drug and alcohol testing, 18 months of dui classes, court fees totalling $2400, and a costly alcohol detecting device on my vehicle that I cannot drive anyway. I am a senior citizen weighing less than 100 lbs. My BAC was 0.17. My blood volumn is much lower than a 175 lb individual. Is there anything in the law to address size and weight issues?
Since you were assigned a public defender, it is assumed you cannot afford your own attorney. Those are your two...
Do officers working dui checkpoints in Sonoma County, CA run or scan drivers license?
Checkpoints in Santa Rosa
They certainly could. Were you asked for your driver's license?
An officer coerced by threatening me after I refused to take a breathalyzer.
I rolled my truck...no injuries ...no one else involved. At the scene I very politely refused to answer the officers questions...he did a sobriety test buy no prelim breathalyzer. He arrested me and took me to the station where he put me in a breathalyzer room with just the two of us. I politely refused the breathalyzer and he got mad and told me if I refused the breathalyzer that they would strap me down and take blood anyway and that if I refused the breathalyzer I would also lose my license for a year and still get strapped down so what did I want to do. I feel I was threatened and coerced into giving a non consensual breathalyzer test in violation of 4th amendment.
Your rights were not violated. California j as an implied consent law. If you drive you consent to take a blood,...
Will my license stay suspended for missing jury duty?
I'm on a restricted license (not for DUI) and I was summoned to jury duty, but I failed to show up because I just forgot. I've read that the courts can suspend your license for failure to appear, but will they deny reinstating it?
Generally the courts do not notify dmv in failure to report for jury duty
My dad was involved in a motorcycle accident and was not at fault but had alcohol in his system. Will he be charged a dui?
My dad had gotten a dui back in 2005 also. Will He have to go to jail?
Was he arrested or cited for anything? Did they obtain a blood or breath sample??
