Westcliffe Law

I got a dui in California five years ago and a judge later ruled that unless i wanted my license back, the alcohol classes
wouldn't be mandatory. Ive moved to Colorado and now want my license back, but have to get cleared by California with a 1650 waiver packet i have to fill out and send back before i can. Will i have to have an SR-22? Also, is there a way to view this packet on line, because the packet wont be here for awhile.
No, you likely won't have to file an SR22 and there's absolutely no way to file online. CA DMV isn't that sophisticated.
Can I be charged for DUI refusal if I was unconscious?
I was involved in a motorcycle accident and received a head injury (acute subdural hematoma) and a broken shoulder. When I awoke the next day in the ICU I had a ticket for a DUI/Refusal and also there is a 'Refusal' noted where I was to sign the ticket. I was not arrested. Also on the ticket it states ''satisfactorily completed as compared to a sober person - yes'. I was not drinking but I am very confused as to why there is a DUI charge, a refusal charge (especially since I was unconscious), and then a statement that I completed as a sober person. (Completed what - I do not know.) The hospital definitely has my blood so I can tell them to use that to prove my innocence but do I need a lawyer for this or is this just something that should be dismissed as it seems to be issued in error.

I was recently arrested for a DUI and submitted to a breath test on the Intoxilyzer 9000.
I failed the breath test and my license was revoked after my CO DMV hearing. The caveat is that my lawyer and I found out that the breathalzyer machine's certification was signed with a stamp from a guy who hadn't been with the company in years. The judge in the county is going to rule in several weeks regarding hundreds of DUI cases and whether the breathalyzer results should be thrown out. My question is...if the machine wasn't legally certified and the signature on the certification was fraudulent, is there any way to appeal the DMV hearing decision?
If you have an attorney already, you really need to ask him/her. There are several highly-skilled attorneys fighting...

What are the laws surrounding forced drug tests under suspicion of DUI?
I am 17 and I occasionally smoke marijuana. My parents argue that if I were to get in a car accident of some sort, I would be forced to take a blood test which could detect marijuana in my blood for up to months after I originally consumed it. According to my parents, if this were to happen they would be the ones to face charges. For this reason I have to take drug tests every month and if I do not pass I am not allowed to drive. Is their argument valid, even in the case of a fatal accident? Is there anything I could use to argue against them? Excuse my formatting, I am on mobile.
If you were cited for driving under the influence of marijuana, the charge would be against you, not your parents....
I know Colorado has no "look back" period when sentencing DUIs as adults, but what if one one my DUIs occurred as a Juvenile?
I was 15 yrs old and it happend 14 yrs ago. Can they still use that against me when sentencing me as an adult. The differnce would determine whether Im senteced w/ DUI as my 2nd or 3rd.
Thie answer to your question is probably so. Most all DUIs are charged, in County Court and not Juvenile Court. When...
