    Tuesday | via Newswise 

    Gun violence restraining orders are a promising strategy for reducing firearm homicide and suicide in the United States, and should be considered by states seeking to address gun violence, researchers from the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the University of California, Davis, argue in a new report. GVROs allow family members and intimate partners who believe a relative's dangerous behavior may lead to violence to request an order from a civil court authorizing law enforcement to remove any guns in the individual's possession, and to prohibit new gun purchases for the duration of the order.

Davis Law

I have received 1st DUI in 2011 in Sacramento. I've finished my DUI program. I never got restricted license. Do I still need IDD
I never filed for restricted license due to proximity of work. Can I reinstate my license without IDD?
No. If you were convicted in Sacramento, you'll have to get an IId for six months regardless how long your suspension...
Misd. DUi 11/2011. 3 y informal prob."obey all laws". Public Intox. 4/2014. Got a letter of revocation of probation.
What charges or sentencing will I be most likely facing?
The answer can depend on a little more information than you have provided or really should provide in a public forum....
Got a DUI in November 2011, with 36 months informal probation "obey all laws". Arrested for CA PC 647 (f) within that period.
I was wondering what the charges or punishment would be for violating the probation.
PC647(f) is a pretty low level misdemeanor. The problem is, it's alcohol related which might not sit well with a judge...
Hello, I am 17 years old and got arrested almost two weeks ago for DUI and driving with bac over .08. how can I beat the case?
I first got pulled over for "speeding". he then did the eye test on me twice and asked me to step out of the car. at the time it was late at night and raining, when he had me perform the sobriety tests. he then breathalyzed me and would not tell me my results. he placed me under arrest for suspicion of DUI yet did not read me my rights. handcuffed me and took me to hospital to give a blood test which I did not consent to, and got breathalyzed two more times. a different police officer then breathalized me and was being respectful as to tell me my results which were a .09 and .10. any advice? please? officer said he got me going 60 in a 35, yet I was not ticketed for speeding.any information helps!I appreciate any effort or thoughts you guys may have. thank you. my father came to pick me up
hire an attorney - your readings are low enough that you may be able to negotiate a plea to a "wet reckless"
Will USCIS consider a person with 2 arrests for Drunk in Public to be a habitual drunkard?
I was arrested twice for Drunk in Public in College,but was never convicted. How does USCIS look at this when you apply for OPT after a F1 visa or even for a H1 visa or Green Card down the road?
This more if an immigration question. I'll reclassify it for you so until be seen by immigration attorneys.
I received my 2nd Arrest for Drunk in Public, do I need to go get booked?
Hello, I was recently arrested for a Drunk in Public early January. I was arrested and booked for that incident and went through a program called Neighborhood Court and got the charges dropped. However I understand that the arrest will be on my record although the misdemeanor will not. Just 2 days ago, I was out celebrating my 22nd birthday and happened to mess up again and got arrested for another Drunk in Public. This time however, I was never booked as i was sent to the hospital. My notice to appear has a booking required box checked. However, I believe that I can get these charges dropped as well before the court date. Would I have to go get booked even if I most likely will not be going to court? Also if I do not get booked is the 2nd arrest still on my record?
You will likely need to be booked, however, don't go and get booked unless you are ordered to.
First offense California DUI, but judge only sentenced 6 week program?
I was cited for my first DUI in November 2011. At my arraignment a few weeks ago, I asked the judge for my indicated sentence and distinctly remember him ordering 72 day (6 week) DUI classes. I chose to hire a public defender, and my court date is approaching soon. However, I know that 72 day/6 week programs are for wet reckless' offenses, and a first DUI offense like mine should be a 3 month DUI class. Could this have been an error on his part? Or was he merely being lax because my BAC was 0.10%, near the 0.08% limit? I'm still hoping to be charged with a wet reckless. If I go to court and fail to get wet reckless, can they still order me to take the 3 month classes, even though the judge said it would've been a 72 day class?
Yes you can get 3 month program. You never pled. Speak to public defender.
