How do I get my dui fine and classes started over?
I have a dui outside of the county that I live in and at the time I was not working so I was unable to make it to switch my classes to my county and I could not make the payments for my fine. I need some information on how I should go about getting that started up again as I am currently working and would like to get that taken care of.
You might have a warrant for not starting your classes on time. You need to get your matter calendared where you were...
What should my next step be as I am supposed to be tested in 6 days.
I was asked to take a urine test after receiving probation for a first offense DUI with a BAC of .11. When i arrived at the probation office, my husband told me his exes mother was a probation officer. She saw us when she was leaving, and went back inside and did not leave again until i walked out the door. After taking the test, I was taken into a room and told that I tested positive for fentanyl and ecstacy, which I have never taken in my life. I was not given any type of paperwork and this was my first meeting with probation after receiving 2 days of home confinement. I contacted my attorney and doctors immediately. I take an antidepressant and non narcotic sleep medicine. None of my medications would have set off a positive. And my doctor assured me that it is not even possible to test for those drugs without a very very expensive blood test. I was told if I failed a second drug test I would face jail time. I tried to have a blood test done but I would need a doctor's order for it. I'm waiting for my attorney's reaction but I definitely don't feel comfortable being tested by them again! I don't know what to do and I'm terrified I could go to jail for no reason!
Perhaps you can ask for a Probation Supervisor to administer the drug test for you to make sure there is no access by...

DUI & professional licensing - best way to proceed?
I'm an MFT intern and I'm currently being charged w/ DUI w/ a BAC of .138. I have a private DUI defense atty who will likely get the charged reduced to a wet and reckless, although that seems to make no difference in this circumstance. I'm about to take my final licensure exam, and just saw that the initial licensure application form requires disclosure of pending criminal activity to the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS). I expect to take my final exam in October and will likely receive a conviction in early November. Given I pass my exam, what will be my best course of action? Should I hire a licensing atty? Should I submit my initial licensure application before or after a conviction? Will the board deny licensure until after a probationary term ends?! Also, I was arrested in another state 8 yrs ago for drug-related charges. Those charges were dropped, the arrest was expunched, my record was sealed, and background was clean until now. During my recent arrest I admitted to a previous arrest for drug-related charges. This disclosure wasn't included in the police report, but is on the booking video. Will the BBS need/see the video? What is the best way for me to proceed?
You disclose your pending criminal case on your application. They will not have access to your booking video. It does...
Can 2 DUIs affect the road to citizenship?
I got 2 DUIs back in 2000. I am a permanent resident in California. I am thinking of becoming a citizen. I'd like to know if the DUIs can affect or deny my citizenship?
No. Those two DUI convictions can no longer "affect the road to citizenship" iF you had no other convictions after that....
Should I consult internal affairs over a crooked DUI?
I was napping in my parked car and awakened by police. It was hot so I felt drowsy. I take medications, same ones for years, none that directly say not to drive. I was parked though. He took my liscense and gave me some pink form checking that I was unresponsive. I had my son with me and he threatened me with child endangerment if I didn't go along? How is this legal?
Sorry, but you had to get where you were somehow. Your son did not drive, so by circumstantial evidence, the police...
Can I get this mandatory Ignition interlock device dismissed?
I received a dui in 2013 and fulfilled all the requirements by 2015 including paying off my court bills. I was pulled over December 2016 for driving on a suspended license; not under the influence whatsoever. I had tried to get my license reinstated after fulfilling my dui requirements but a medical hold was on it from several years back that i was just recently able to get removed. The judge I saw for my case gave me an order to install an interlock device I'm guessing because I had a dui in the past. Is there a way I can get this modified or dismissed?
Bottom line is that the court and the DMV are two separate entities. Hire an attorney to deal with the DMV so you can...
