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.
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 was taken to a hospital after being approached for DUI, I refused a blood test but submitted a breath test and officer informed me their device was nonoperational, I would not submit to second test with a PAS device. A DS-367 form I did complete officer sent DMV resulting in suspension of my licence but pages 2-3 were missing from DS-367....... DO I HAVE A CASE
Have you requested the DMV hearing within 10 days of the arrest if you did not you're probably out of luck as far as...
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...
I lost my job a few months ago because I was in jail for the DUI. I am hopefully starting a job next week, but that is dependent on me not going back to jail for this offense. What is my best course of action in this situation?

I got arrested for a DUI on August 8th, 2014. I blew a .14 and got my license taken from me. I was given a temporary 30 day license. My court date was set for September 8th. I was given a First Time Defender if I pleaded no contest. I was forced by my mom to request a continuance for October 20th. 10/20/14 I accepted the deal and was given $2100 in fines, 3month dui class, and 1 day sheriff's work. I've already attended 1 of my classes. When I contacted the DMV Mandatory Actions Unit today they told me I need an SR-22 on file and to install an IID, and then I can come in and pay a fee for my restricted license immediately. But they told me I won't get my normal license back until 3/9/15. Seems too long. When exactly did my suspension start? August 8th, September 8th, or October 20th?
You actually have two suspensions. Anyone accused of driving 0.08% or above faces an administrative action by DMV to...
I was told if I reschedule then there is a greater chance that the officer will not show up and testify, or that the case may be dismissed all together. Is this true? I do not want to get stuck with additional court fees. What is the worst case scenario if I do go to trial and lose? From my understanding I will retain my driving privelige regardless of the trial, as long as I win the DMV hearing beforehand. Because it is a vc23136 as opposed to vc23140.
Your understanding of the relationship between DMV and criminal proceedings is incorrect. Vehicle Code ยง23136,...
