Can I record my roommate being drunk in the living room, conscious or unconscious to build a case to have him evicted?
My roommate destroyed his room while in a drunk rage and now spends 90% of his time in the living room. He sleeps most of the day to my knowledge, and he is prone to having night terrors; he screams and shouts VERY loudly during the day, night, and its very disturbing(for hours). Can I record him to build a case against him to my landlord of his drunken behavior and that he is unsuitable to keep living with us? He does this for a week every few months and I've have enough. And he bangs on my door while drunk for various reasons while I'm trying to mind my own business. Student going to college close to campus, he is a student at a neighboring school.
Why don't you just talk to the landlord and ask to leave? You may not need to video your roommate at all. If that...

What penalties am I facing if I am convicted of the charges below? Should I plea bargain like last time?
I was cited in California with a misdemeanor BP 4060 possession as well as a misdemeanor DUI. I have never been arrested for sales, trafficking, or manufacture. I have not been convicted yet, and I am going to court to day to recieve my "Watson Advisement". I do have one prior DUI that I bargained down to a wet & wreckless, out of fear that even though I had no illegal drugs or alcohol in my stystem, I did take a medication that has a warning of sleep walking, sleep driving, even sleep sex. What penalties am I facing if I am convicted? On a side note I was arrested in January 2014 and still haven't been given a "speedy trial", even though I requested one.
You have a right to a trial within 45 days of your arraignment if you're out of custody at the time of arraignment. If...
Is it usually better to hire a private attorney than to be appointed a public defender?
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...
In California does a wet & reckless count as a first strike under the Three Strikes 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...
