I was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI in February of 2009. My blood alcohol level was .24%, three times the legal limit in CA. I began law school in August of 2009, graduated this past June, and just passed the bar exam. I am experiencing some delay in my moral character application, which I expected. But, I spoke with my analyst today, and she told me that my case has gone up to her supervisor for additional review. She also mentioned that I may have to appear in front of a committee. I still have unpaid fines and around 5 DUI classes. I am also still on probation (placed on 5 year informal probation in 2009).
Can anyone offer any insight into my prospects, tips on what to do? Any advice would be much appreciated because I'm pretty nervous after speaking with my analyst today.
Just comply with the expungent issue. You are looing at least a six month delay. First time passer, excellent

My ANCIENT 1st-time, misdemeanor DUI case was dismissed today following a lengthy motion to strike (?) hearing. Jury selection set for this morning, instead 3 hours of argument before judge called attys to chambers, then ruled to dismiss per 1385 stating that an appellate ruling on the issue of contention (blood sample, no phlebotomist - confrontation clause) was necessary for clarity given that current case law is, in his opinion, too ambiguous to adequately address this particular case's concerns. A.D.A. is appealing. DMV APS 2.5 years ago, suspension upheld despite Tit.17 viol. (same 4th amendment prob; Officer testified in lieu of phleb). Can I do anything to restore my driving record? I know charges could be refiled later, but do I have a shot at with DMV now? My PD can't help...
By statute, you only have one year from the date of arrest to request a renewed hearing based on the dismissal of the...
