Yuba City Law

I plead guilty to DUI a few years ago in return for the DA reducing the charge from DUI to wet & reckless, and I was wondering if that counted as a first strike? The judge never said anything to the tune of "This is your first strike", but I am not sure if he has too, or if it is assumed that the lawyer is supposed to tell me (which he didn't - public defender). Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
No. A wet is not a strike. Only certain crimes rise to the level of a strike. Visit this page for a list of CA...
I was arrested on January 17th for DUI and had a court arraignment on February 25th and was bailed out on bond. I went to court on February 25th for my arraignment but the court clerk said that there haven't been any charges filed and gave me a slip that said if charges aren't filed in 15 days my bail is exonerated. Now it's March 18th and I still haven't heard from the court about a new arraignment. Is this normal? What could it mean? Should I be worried? Thank you for your help.
The statute of limitations is how long the DA has to file charges. On a misdemeanor DUI, it's one year from the date...
i was not driving a commercial vehicle but was in my personal vehicle. they are telling me that those dui's will both be on my record for 55 yrs. and the 4 points associated with those offenses will remain for the same amount of time. I am currently in the process of obtaining my class a again as i gave it up after the second one and am afraid that i will never be able to be hired because of the points. is there any action i can take legally to fight those points or a possible hearing that i can get with DMV to see if i can get those points removed for the sole purpose of employment. i want to drive for a living if possible. i definitely respect my license more now . please help. i was just issued my commercial permit yesterday so i know i have not lost it for life
Second time DUI usually means that your commercial driving privileges are suspended for life. Given that your cases...

The problem you may be facing is that two DUI convictions means a lifetime loss of a class A license. The points on...
I had a public defender when I was charged with wet and reckless driving and he had so many clients in the court room that I spoke to him for about 10 minutes total from the start of the proceedings to the end. He basically said "Plead guilty and take the plea bargain", he showed up to court late, he forgot paperwork that would have helped my case (such as the fact I blew a 0.00 BAC on the breathalyzer) and he mumbled and stuttered. Normally I NEVER would have taken the plea bargain but I just didn't feel I had a chance in heck of winning in a trial, simply because I felt my public defender didn't have the experience or professional demeanor to put up a satisfactory defense. So would a private attorney be a better choice?
Some public defenders are really good, others are not. The same is true of private attorneys, though. The difference...
There are two, both about 5 years ago. Both while underage.
Each state has their own statute of limitations. You need to ask this in a Louisiana thread. Good luck.
