Can a LAPD officer tell me that he is arresting me for being in the US army? I want to file a lawsuit against the LAPD
I was stopped by LAPD for a DUI which I understand I was wrong but the officers told me they were going to let me go with a warning. After they found out I was in the Army the sergent says to me " you are in the army?" I said "yes" he then said "alright now you are going to jail."
You were arrested for a DUI, not for being in the Army. I have no idea about why they would let you go with a warning....
I was driving and saw two cops, one on each side street ahead with their lights flashing. It was very dark and multiple street lamps were out. I slowed down and passed between cops within the legal speed limit. I passed them instead of stopping since they were parallel to the curb, not horizontal like a blockade and nothing indicating to stop. As I pass, I hear construction workers or police telling me to slow down. I then ran over a caution tape that was not visible because of the lack of lighting, plus it was so low it barely reached the top of my tires. I then hear police screaming to get out of the car and am handcuffed. They then put a line of flares that blocks the street as i'm waiting. I was then given the FST and failed. I was taken to the station and blew a .14. What can I do?
Although your story is probably what happened, it really doesn't give any reason to surpress the evidence against you....
I just got a dui in Los Angeles, CA. I took a blood test and the officer was following me for about 2 minutes and I had a broken taillight. When he pulled me over he immediately asked me. I thought I was fine, I only had a few glasses of wine, but blew a .11. I do not know what to do since I consented to the blood test and I cannot get a public attorney until the date of my case in April. It is my first offense, I don't even have tickets. I am scared because I need my license. Is there a way to save it? Anyone recommend a lawyer in Los Angeles?

Can I apply for restricted license alongwith the IID installation or do I have to wait for the restriction period to end?
If you have been convicted in court of a DUI in Los Angeles the DMV will require the IID. Once you are approved for...
Told by Orange County court that I was never convicted of DUI three years ago. How does this impact ability to get license back?
I’m a Florida resident, working for a CA company, and spend a good portion of time in both states. In July 2010, I was arrested for DUI in Orange Co, CA, by OC Sheriffs. I blew 0.13 They confiscated my FL D/L and impounded my rental car, etc. After the DA took a couple of months to file on me, I eventually appeared in court and was found eligible for CA’s “first offender” program. For various reasons, I did not sign up for the program. I was subsequently picked up on a warrant for said failure to sign up, plus a felony drug possession charge. I plead guilty on the possession charge, did some county time (to include time for FTA on the DUI case plus dismissal of court costs on same), completed PC1210 program and had my three years of formal probation discharged after one year. Fast forward to 2014. After basically getting by via public transportation and bicycle for the past three years (I was never in CA long enough to complete the three month DUI program) I get laid off, stuck in CA, with now time enough to sign up for and complete the program, hoping to return to FL for work. A treatment provider in LA Co near where I reside suggested that I ask the court to be on an accelerated program which can be completed in six weeks instead of twelve, if the court would approve. But a trip to Orange Co court where my cases were adjudicated yielded a surprise: I was never convicted of the DUI in Orange County! Apparently the case was dropped completely in favor of the harsher drug possession charge (tho I thought I had convictions for both.) Is this just a distinction without a difference? The CA DMV says they will not issue me a driver’s license without completing the first offender program. Florida renewed my license (listed as valid, w/o restrictions on their website ‘til 2021), but will not send me the physical license until I’ve completed the program. Should I just complete the CA program to get my CA license, then return to FL? Does the not being convicted of the DUI have any bearing whatsoever on either DMV? Can I disclose to future employers that I’ve not had any DUI convictions based on the court’s failure to convict even tho I must complete the class for DMV? I have not yet filed the requisite SR22; any possibility I won’t need to without the court conviction? Will legal representation do me any good at this point with either state’s DMV? Sorry for the length of the post. Thanks in advance for your time.
You need to contact an experienced DUI/DMV lawyer ASAP!!! There is a little known procedure that will allow you to...
I went for DUI jury trial and lost. Though I have been convicted, haven't been sentenced yet. My sentencing is set for 10 days from now. Does this conviction already show on my DMV record? Shall I start the punishment related to DMV already? (Eg: IID, AA classes, restricted licence etc..)
The best person to direct your questions to is the attorney that represented you at trial. For general information,...
Sentenced in LA County for 1st DUI with a .18 BAC. I know I need to get this device, but it's been two weeks and have not received any official letter from the DMV saying my license has been suspended. Should I just get the IID installed right away? Or await the official letter?
In order to get a restricted license you will need an IID, SR 22 insurance, and proof of enrollment in alcohol school ....
