What is past jail time in ventura county for 4th DUI felony?
Was arrested in November for my 4th DUI and was just called that the DA finally is pressing charges almost 8 months later. It is my 4th in the 10 year period but there was no accident and no one else involved. what is the possible jail time in ventura county? I am a business owner and sole supporter of my family. I am now sober since then. something that i thought would be impossible. the possibility of going to jail and missing my kids made me put the bottle down.
In California, DUI #4 is a FELONY with a maximum of three years in (local) prison. The Ventura County DA will be...
Hello, I have a question concerning court fees, fines, & restitution VS probation fees.
1 year ago I was convicted of First time DUI and failure to stop (complicated/lengthy to explain, I did NOT run or evade police..) Anyways, after conviction I served the mandatory 90 day sentence and paid all the court fee's, fines, and restitution cost. A sum of $6,000, which drained my bank account and I also lost my job in the process, and I'm currently a college student with massive loans. Even though a misdeamnor, I was givin 3 years probation. I go every month without incident, and have a good relationship with my PO. However with 0 income and massive debt for school, a monthly fee of $142 is still being charged which is an additional ~ $4000, totaling @ $10k. They are claiming even though I paid all fines & fees, monthly prob. Fees must be paid. Is this legal or justified ?
If the $142/mo is a probation fee and if the probation officer will not waive the fee talk to the lawyer who...
Got a 2nd dui in Thousand oaks ca because my car matched the description the person called the police for.
My 1st dui was 2 years ago but bail was 10000. But can a lawyer use unlawful pull over because my car matched the description of a person calling in for suspected dui driver? And would anyone know why my bail was set a 10,000 ? Because still on informal probation?
In this age of cell phones, it is not unusual for citizens to report poor driving. I feel that a phone call such as in...
Restricted license after a dui
I have two questions, 1 I got a dui in August 2013. The dmv said my license was suspended from September 2013 until September 2014 (I was under 21) but I didn't get charged in court until May 2014. Does the year suspension start when I get the dui or after I'm charged? Question 2, if I get a restricted licenses and pay the reinstatement fee do I have to pay a reinstatement fee again when my suspension is up?
You will probably get hit for two reinstatement fees. Discuss your other questions with your attorney. You had an...
I got a DUI in 2013. I was sentecend to probation. But i wasnt able to comply with my probabtion?

How do I get my restricted licence un suspended after being dropped from the 18 month DUI program for not being able to pay?
I finally got a restricted licensez after being suspended since December 2008 for 3 DUI's! I have the IID installed, SR 22 insurance, and have been re enrolled in the 18 month DUI class! I'm on SSI and was unable to pay so the school dropped me! Prior to this happening I spoke with my Counselor and the administrator at the DUI program about payment and wasn't offered a sliding scale for payment or even told that once the school dropped me I'd have to complete the 18 month program before qualifying for another restricted license! What do I do now! I have a nine month old daughter and need to drive for her and my classes!
Unfortunately, that program is key. DMV won't release your license until you satisfy that term.
