My husband got a dui in 1991 in Calfornia, he finally took care of it and it was dismissed cause of how old the this dui was, so he didn't have to do time, but now he is applying for citizenship and he is putting this information on the application but not sure how to answer the section where if this is a criminal offense or just a misdemeanor or worth even adding this info to the application. Thank you, Veronica
A first offense DUI without injuries is a Misdemeanor. However, if it was dismissed, i am not sure it has to be...

My girlfriends car was dented by a drunk patron at a bar that I work at. We have them on video. What would my next step be?
I have the party's names, branch of the military they work, city they live in and video of the damage to the vehicle. What would my next step be to take care of this situation. I have also reached out to the people who did the damage.

Can anyone help?
I got a Dui last night even though I wasn't even by my car, it was parked on the street. The cop was yelling at me and I was very intoxicated and scared so I don't even know what I wass saying but I said I drove it around the corner when I actually didn't drive.
you need to contact a good attorney in your area ASAP. not enough information in your message.
My car was damaged in my work parking lot because of a drunk patron.
I work at a bar, where my car was parked in the very front of the bar. One of the patrons was asked to leave and a fight ensued involving security, right in front of my car. The drunk patron kicked my car causing over $2000 in damages. He was arrested for vandalism as I pressed charges. My employer advised that I shouldn't have pressed charges and that its "just a car" and no big deal. Its a brand new car, so the damages are expensive. I did open a claim. and plan to go thru my insurance. But my question is whether my job is responsible under any premise liability for the damages. Because now I have to pay my $1000 deductible for something that's "no big deal" to my employer.
You may be able to get restitution for the damage to car through the criminal justice system, including your deductible...
My son is 27 yrs old and just got his 3rd DUI the first one was 2006 the 2nd 2009 and the 3rd was this weekend
we posted bail yesterday he has 2 court appearances for 6/6 and 6/24. I believe this is going to take more than a public defender I am looking for someone who frequents the Orange county courthouse and is familiar with the judge/staff there. looking for an attorney who deals mostly with DUI's. please advise if I am correct in getting a private attorney. One other thing since the time is short do you think the court will give us another date to come back since we need to contact a lawyer? He was arrested in Tustin not driving but actually standing outside the car which was parked when the police arrived but was charged with a DUI because a witness said they saw him driving.
You are on the right track. You want to find a local DUI defense attorney. The date for the 6th may have been an in-...
