If I pay the fees, file SR22 and DUI school to obtain a restricted license then have I conceded and the appeal is moot?
I was cited for DUI (.09 BAC) in El Dorado County, CA. I had the DMV administrative per se hearing and lot. I filed a petition for writ of mandate and lost. I've appealed the decision on the writ to the 3rd DCA where it is awaiting a briefing schedule. My license was suspended for 4 months. The DMV and court did not stay the suspension. I decided to not pay the fees, fines, etc or go to DUI school or file a SR22 as my writ petition and now appeal move forward. I understand if I consent to the fees, fines, SR22 and DUI school to obtain a restricted license then I've conceded to the DMV suspension.
Where's your lawyer in all of this? Don't tell me you're representing yourself. What exactly are you asking?
How soon after arraignment can I get the discovery in a dui case?
my son got a dui in his driveway, to make it worse on his 25th birthday when ins. rates drop. hes a student in college and has 2 jobs. He has always been very very responsible regarding driving and has no tickets on his record to date. he was not coming home, but was thinking about leaving after a argument with his girl, when a neighbor called cops. he gave a lawyer 500 bucks and still hasn't seen discovery. what type of defense does he have? can you tell me approx. cost for this type of case and what chance does he have to be acquitted. thank you
If he has already retained an attorney, he needs to address this question to the attorney. $500 is a very minimal...
Can a person go to Canada with a DUI conviction by providing a promissory letter not to drive in the country to the consulate?
A friend informed me of this and I am curious if it is true as I greatly want to go but have had two DUI's, one nine years ago and one within the past three years.
Under Canadian law, if you have just one California DUI conviction, even for a wet reckless on your record, you may not...
I am having so many problems with my interlock device? How can I have it removed?
My interlock device has malfunctioned repeatedly. I have had it replaced twice in two months. The malfunctions were device related--I have not touched a drink snce t was installed. I use my car to drive to and from work and for life n general. I drive up and over squirrly mountain passes in conditions that would have your heart stop in good weather---let alone when there is 20 inches of snow and and sharp turns that have 3000" drops on each side (think Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe). The device requires a random test every 3 to 15 minutes. This requires picking up the device WHILE drivng, blowing into it for 15-20 seconds with your head down and hoping it registers. ALL this WHILE driving. This is dangerous to me and others and is costly to have a required reset.
Unfortunately you cannot get it removed- at least not without court order. Speak to your attorney.
What are the chances of getting a critical need license for college? If cited for a BAC of .05% and under 21?
I got pulled over for stopping over the line in a stop sign. I told the officer that I had a few beers 3 hours before driving and he gave me the PAS test which tested at .05% and gave a pink temporary license for 30 days and that my license will be suspended upon expiration. He did not tow my car or arrest me and simply ordered me to walk home. What are the chances of me getting a critical need license for college?

These are very hard to get. Make sure you contact the DMV with 10 days and get an attorney. Many times your attorney...
I received a drunk in public and obstructing justice on 7/30/10
I went to court on 9/8 and no charges had been filed. Isnt' there a time line on when this needs to be done. I call every week with the same answer still no charges. Isnt' there a right to a speedy trial, so when charges need to be filed in a timely fashion?
There is a right to speedy trial, but courts have routinely held that delays of over a year often do not trigger speedy...
