In a DUI case, your license can be suspended two ways: through a DMV hearing process, or as a result of the criminal...
My DUI case has (most likely) been rejected by the DA. Is there an attorney that can (at a reasonable cost) represent my DMV...
hearing? I've accumulated some defenses and case law that should help the hearing. Being that the DA rejected the case, I believe the DMV hearing will be easier than first thought.
Call around to a few different lawyers. Most will not provide quotes over the phone, but do provide free consultations.
Can I be charge with CVC 23153(a) VC “DUI causing injury,”, even if nobody was injured ? As my understanding: the prosecutor must prove three facts (otherwise known as “elements of the crime”):2 - (1) you drove while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, (no alcohol involved, test is negative, but I admit I took "ecstasy" 3 hours ago) - (2) while driving, you broke a law (in addition to driving under the influence) or acted in an otherwise negligent manner while driving (my speed was ~100 ph with 3 friends inside the car on empty freeway at 1 am, coming back from dance club) - (3) that your unlawful act or negligence injured another person. (so nobody been injured)
The simple answer is that CVC 23153(a) cannot be charged if there is no injury to anyone. However, law defines the...
I got a DUI last Thanksgiving in California, I live in the bay area, I was under 21 so my DMV suspension is almost up.
I have my court date in november 20. Now my question is will the Martinez court (the judge is a douche) suspend my license for another year. I have been hearing mixed things, some people say the Martinez courts don't handle license suspensions anymore and it is strictly left to the DMV. I also am hearing that DMV and court suspensions are different therefore I will get another year suspension. Seems like double jeopardy to me but I don't know.
It's unclear to me whether this is your first offense that has just dragged on forward year or you picked up a second...
I currently have two points on my dmv record for an accident in 2011. I recently was charged for a dui when I fell asleep at the wheel due to a medication I am prescribed for nausea and rolled my vehicle. It is totaled. If I hire an attorney, what kind of criminal punishment should I expect from the DMV as well as criminal court? This is a first offense with no criminal record. I do have a medical cannabis card and am prescribed a benzo for anxiety. So there will be thc and benzos in my toxicology report. Please advise what a good attorney could work out in a plea bargain? The worst case scenario as well as the best case scenario, with the 2 points on my dmv record already from 2011. This will help me determine weather or not to get an attorney. Thank you.
A non-alcohol DUI is very defensible if you kept your statements to police after the crash to a minimum. I have had...
