I received a DUI in Humboldt County with a BAC of . 21. Is there really any point to hiring an attorney?
I have read on numerous legal advice sites that there is almost a 100% conviction rate at this level of BAC and, objectively, I was definitely in the wrong. I should NOT have been driving and was definitely a risk. What would be the TRUE advantages of hiring a lawyer. I am very poor and want an honest answer if I am going to consider paying the substantial fees to retain an attorney. This is going to cripple me financially.
One TRUE advantage to hiring an attorney is you don't have to appear in court. Maybe there's a discrepancy with the...
What can I expect from my second DUI conviction in a different county?
I was arrested with a BAC of .21 in humboldt county. I live in LA. I was not provided a ticket and released rather quickly. I have a prior DUI arrest that has not yet gone to trial. I will be hiring a public defender for that arrest as I feel I have grounds to reduce my charge to a wet reckless. This second conviction, however, I am not confident that there will be any way of contesting it.
You don't "hire" a public defender. A public defender is a lawyer who is paid by the government to defend people...

When I was arrested for my duid the officer never took my license. Do I have to file a SR.-22 and pay?
This is my first offense with any kind of drugs. My first Dui. I was sleeping in my truck and they woke me up and I freaked out, started my truck up and ran into a bush. I came to when they had me cuffed on the ground. They told me that's what I had done. Then they took me in for a blood test, I didn't refuse. I was very compliant with the arresting officer after the scene of course.
First of all, you should speak with a DUI attorney for a free consultation. You should be able to find a lawyer on...
I blew a .066 but chp added .o2 due to an hour had lapsed and charged me with a dui. Can I beat it?
I was in a car accident and it took chp a little over an hour to get there. I performed several field tests and blew .066 but said due to the time lapse they had to add .02 which put me over the legal limit and I was arrested and charged with misdemeanor dui. I have never heard such a thing, but this is also my first dui. Is there cause to fight for it to be completely dropped with a good lawyer?
That's ridiculous. How did he know if you were going up or coming down? What did you say? (Don't answer that here,...
