My daughter was just picked up for her second DUI in 2 months. She hasn't even been to court yet on the first one. The car was impounded. Blew .9 1st time, 1.9 this time. Will the second arrest be brought up when she goes to court for the first one? With the 2 arrests so close together I'm guessing she'll get jail time? She's never made more than minimum wage and is unemployed. With no job and no prospect of getting one now, what happens when she can't pay the fines or pay for the DUI classes?
First you really should get your daughter some program having two dui so close generally means a problem second the...
I got a misdemeanor DUI last night (8/23) for a 1.12, then 1.10 BAC. I had to sign saying I wouldn't leave the state and my court date isn't until 10/4. I'm in the process of moving from California to Washington, with a job, school, and apartment all waiting for me in 3 weeks. I really need to be able to leave the state but I don't know what to do. I'm also worried about whether the classes I'll have to take can be taken up in Washington as well. Thanks for any help.
This is not uncommon and good question. Is your agreement not to leave the state with a bail bond company or with...
I'm moving from CA to WA next week and was told by the CA DMV that I could complete a "1650 waiver packet" to waive the requirement for in-state, in-person DUI classes (I got a very low misdemeanor DUI here in CA late last month). In reading about that online it seemed possible to get another license, at least a restricted one, in my new state. But I contacted WA's DMV and they said I wouldn't be eligible for anything until I had cleared things up in CA - and they have to remove me from the "Problem Drive Pointer System National Driver Register." Are they ever going to do that if I don't meet their class requirements? Am I ever going to be eligible for a license, even a restricted one, in WA? Thanks for any help.
You have posted your question on a forum for California criminal defense issues. I would ask your question to a...
I got a misdemeanor DUI in California, but I keep hearing that the CA DMV requires you to take your educational program in-state. I've already gotten accepted into grad school in WA, secured an apartment there, and have a job starting on 9/16. My court date isn't until 10/4. I have an appointment with an attorney but I'm under such a time crunch. I'm worried they won't know anything until they talk to the judge on my court date. I'm unsure whether I can even continue packing at this point. Has anyone seen the courts approve DUI courses in another state for CA residents?
Courts will approve an out of state program, but all that does is satisfy the court not dmv. DMV only accepts in-state,...
I have to "attend" my DMV DUI telephone hearing without a lawyer. What can I expect during this call?
I had a consultation with a local attorney, but he told me he didn't think he would be able to win the case for me. He said there was a very slight chance on technicalities, but that most likely I will lose and then owe even more money. I mainly wanted the DMV hearing to prolong the time before my license is suspended. Any tips/advice would be appreciated.
No tips we can give you here would help. It's impossible for an attorney to tell you what the likelihood of success is...
I just recently got a ticket for driving without a license. I lost my license for DUI over 10 years ago. What happens now?
I am currently trying to get my license back but I have to finish 18 months of HART. Will I see jail time?
It depends on the court. Usually if your license is suspended because of a DUI, they will charge you with a 14601.2 VC....
My wife is on California state disability from work for an auto accident. 3 weeks later she got a DUI . Her work is involved now
My wife is on California state disability from work for an auto accident. 3 weeks later she got a DUI in my vehicle and has had her license extended by her lawyer at her DMV hearing. She had a court date and her lawyer appeared for her but no charges have been filed. The arrest date was 7/28/2013. Her work ran a DMV report and it stated she had no license (which she does have) from a incident that occurred on 7/28/2013. (They have never said anything to her about it being a DUI they just called it a incident and not sure they know). Now they are pretty much trying to force her to put in her resignation or be terminated. The supposed grounds for termination is not having a valid drivers license. She is required to have a license to drive GSA vehicles. She works at a California Native American health clinic ( not on a reservation or rancheria). She still has a active license until the next DMV hearing which is in 3 weeks and it can be extended again according to her lawyer until charges are or ever filed. If I understand correctly her license is a temporary one. She has not had a 30 day suspension and has not had to apply for a provisional one yet. Her next doctors appointment is not for 2 weeks and she is in lots of pain from her accident and under loads of stress/anxiety. Her disability I presume will be extended at that point as she is not able to sit or stand for more than 20 minuets at a time without extreme discomfort. Let me just state that I do know California is a at will employment state before concluding. Now this is where it is confusing to me and her. She is out on disability from a non work related injury. She is required to have a license to be employed there but she is currently not an active employee. Can her work fire her for the license thing while on disability? Why are they trying very very hard to make her resign? ( I mean really hard.. HR is having a temper-tantrum almost). Whats her rights as a employee on disability? Its all very confusing to both of us and she donsent know what the best action is to take. Her termination would read she was fired for not having a license and it is a job requirement according to HR. (Nothing about a DUI). She has a drivers license currently so it is confusing and seems like they could not fire her for that. She is innocent until proven guilty and her lawyer believes she will not be charged. Any information on her situation would be greatly appreciated.
Your question is more appropriate for an Employment Law Attorney / Forum. While the license issue stems from a...
