The person in the store never saw me drink and never saw me drive. As soon as I was backing out of the parking spot the cop stopped behind me. The cop did not say he was pulling me over for a traffic violation. The person in the store was never called over to identify me. Can a traffic stop occur because of heresay? After I was taken into custody at the police station the blood test did show I was over the limit. The cop did not say I was breaking any traffic laws nor was anything wrong with my car. Can a judge dismiss this because there was no probable cause for the stop.
It sounds like the officers did not have any legal cause for the stop. A witnesses statement can be sufficient if...

No -your suspended license applies to both public and private property. If you get caught driving with a suspended...
I got a DUI last year in July. I have done everything that was appointed to me by law. I've done the 9 month dui classes, paid fines & did community service. However, I am still on preliminary probation. I have applied for my LVN nursing license but got denied because I was on probation & have appealed it. My question is, I am planning on getting married to my fiancé in Germany (he lives there, born & raised) The maximum length for any foreigners to visit without a visa is 90 days, but I'm planning on staying longer & then returning later to take care of & get my nursing license straightened out. Would it be hard or impossible for me to obtain a visa from Germany? Should I lie on he visa & not tell them that I got a DUi? I've heard that they're unable to get your criminal background if so
DO NOT LIE on your application for a Visa. That's a terrible idea. The worst idea I've read on AVVO all week and I've...
I was recently terminated from a 6 month DUI traffic program for excessive absences and am not sure what I need to do to be reinstated in my program. The court that handled my DUI infraction was the Bellflower Superior Court. Do I need to go back to that specific court? None of the provided numbers online are working. Can I just show up and request a court date? Also, I know I need a "referral" to be reinstated, but what exactly is this? Is it a judge's ruling for me to be referred back into the program? Or is it paperwork I can process at the clerk's office and submit to my traffic school? I'm trying to continue my program as soon as possible but there's very little information on the technical process of being reinstated. I can't even get a hold anyone at the bellflower court!
On a first-time reinstatement, the process should be simple. Get to the courthouse at 800 am and stand in line at the "...
During my DUI DMV hearing the arresting officer testified that without question he observed me for the entire 15 minutes prior to the breath test. Was able to obtain hard evidence that proves the officer did not observe me and moreover lied under penalty of perjury. ( Multiple time both on paper and during the DMV Hearing sworn statements) The DA has offered me a wet-reckless plea but I am trying to decide if I should attempt to fight this in a court. My BAC was .11. Does an improper breath test and officer perjury raise enough reasonable doubt to get this case dismissed / not-guilty verdict in a jury trial? Should I consider fighting this in a jury trial? Looking for others advice/insight that have defended this scenario before..
You should really be discussing this with your attorney. Even if the breath test was improper, the DA will bring in...
