How long in the State of California is a DUI on Your record ?
In 2001 I got a Misdemeanor 1st offence DY DUI. I did My Mandatory 24hrs in Jail & something like $1875 in fines but never did the 90 days Alchohol Classes I was Sentanced to Complete 14 yrs ago. When I went to Dig to find out what it would take to get My Licence back He told Me I had to Complete 90 days of Schooling. Later I called & Insurance Company telling Him about My Duo He told Me that it should be Off My record. I told Him that's what I believed should be true. Can The State of California DMV hold that against Me for 14 yrs or should I fight it ?
Unfortunately, the DMV has an endless memory. Since you were convicted of a DUI and failed to attend and complete the...
How should I handle this DUI?
I was driving a friends van back to a campsite from the store and got pulled over due to a head light being out. The officer asked if I had been drinking and I told him I had a couple beers earlier in the evening so he asked to me to perform a field sobriety test. I ended up blowing a .092 and was arrested, then a half hour later at the station blew under .08 what should I do and what may my charges look like. This is also my first DUI ever and my first alcohol offence. Thank you

Will a DUI suspension be erased from my record of the DA never files charges?
I lost my DMV hearing so my licenses was suspended for 4 months. I was arrested in February and there has not been and criminal charges filed against me yet. Long story short I was not ever driving a vehicle and was arrested for DUI. My dream is to have a job in law enforcement and I'm not sure how this all affects this.
February wasn't that long ago. The DA has up to one year to file a misdemeanor DUI charge. If the DMV suspended, you...
Can I be charged for dui when no officer ever saw me in a vehicle while intoxicated at all?
I was arrested and charged with a DUI. I was at a friends house when a physical altercation too place and a neighbor called the PD. When the poll d showed up I was standing by the road waiting for a friend to show up and take me home. The police went back to the house and settled things with the physical matters. A different friend that was sober had driven me to the house and then left when the fight happened. When the cops walked out they had asked how we go there because we were obviously intoxicated. My friend said she drove so they took her to the side and gave her about 6 breath test because the officer couldn't get a reading. He finally got a reading and arrested her for DUI and out her in the car. He then came behind me and arrested me for public intoxication and put me in the car with her. While we were in the car she was freaking out and begging me to say that I had drove, so I did. Which was very dumb of me but I was very intoxicated and wasn't thinking right. So they switched our charges and charged me with DUI and her for public intoxication. We both were booked into jail and then released.
Try and reverse the roles now and see how good of a friend you have. Despite the fact that no one saw you driving,...
