Can you get a DUI after an auto accident if not ticket or arrest was made?
2 days ago my daughter rolled her car. She had been drinking (2 beers she says) prior--she is legal drinking age. She had injuries that required an ER visit. The officer on site did field sobriety (no breathalyzer) & kept her license. He told her she did "fine" on the tests. She never saw the police officer again but he kept her license. She had treatment and tests done at the ER & was released home with no ticket & no information as to what to do next. Can she still get a DUI? Who should she contact about the next step or getting her license back.
If she is found responsible for the accident, I believe she can still be cited and charged for DUI. Best bet is to...
Dui help
I was arrested in California for my 2nd dui with a BAC of .14. My first was nine years ago. From the time I was arrested to now, my wife and I have moved to Washington and I want to know if I will still have to do jail time, and how it affects my drivers license in Washington. My wife is soon to deliver our second child and I would really prefer not to be in jail when she goes into labor.
You should retain an experienced attorney right away.
BAC 0.09
I was arrested last thursday for having a bac of 0.09, first timer. is it recommended for me to get a lawyer or just get a public defendant on the day of the court? and how does the stay and hearing at dmv work, because I requested one on the phone, the woman said I could only do it if I believed that I was not drunk driving, and hung up on me.
There are good and bad public defenders just as there are good and bad private attorneys. However, you're are only...
I received a felony DUI conviction at 21, and five years later, I'm wondering what are my options?
I received five DUIS in around one year of time, at the age of 21. I was sentenced to 16 months in state prison, however did all my time in jail since I was a non-violent offender. After jail, I enrolled full-time in community college and have been working towards my AA in Psychology and hopefully will transfer to a UC. I was not able to obtain employment following the felony conviction, and thus, have not made any payments to the courts. I owe multiple courts money and had no way of paying, however I know this is likely not a valid enough reason. Honestly I'm afraid of going to court and being taken into custody for non-payment, but I have to try to resolve this in some way if i ever hope to be licensed as a Psychologist. No payment=NO HOPE for expungement? Do I have any options?
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you have no options but to pay. You cannot go to jail for non-payment. Since...

I got charged with a DUI in PA with a CA id on me. Now CA DMV suspended my licence. Why?
I completed the PA ARD program and got my charges expunged. Why does the CA DMV still require me to take classes and get an SR22 to get my licence back?
Because that's what the CA DMV does. Sorry. You'll have to follow their demands. They learned of the conviction and...
