Am I required to show my license at California DUI checkpoint
I was not drunk or impaired. I rolled my window down, and asked the cop if I was required to give him my license and if the 4th amendment protects me from unreasonable search and seizure. He said no so I handed him my license he looked at it, gave it back then I left

Dui Arrest?
My husband got a Dui back in 2006, he completed the community service and made like 3 payments, but then he left to Costa Rica and never went back to the states. He called the court and they said that there is no outstanding Warrant and that there is a civil assessment. We now want to travel to Puerto Rico and i would like to know if he would get arrested at the airport if he starts making payments?
A "civil" assessment means that this is no longer a matter being handled in the criminal court. Your husband's unpaid...
If i admitted to having a few drinks earlier that day but keys were not in igntion can i still be arrested for a DUI?

Should I hire a lawyer to go back in front of a judge for me?
Hi. I git a dui in December and I got sentenced to 10days weekend work program. I've done 5days and I have 5days to go. I missed a day. I was 8min late and was told I needed to go back to court to talk to a judge. I contacted my lawyer and she wants me to pay her $360 to have her fix it. I already spent $3,600 on her services and this is still the same case and I don't think I should be paying her again. She did say if something came up, I should let her know so she can fix it. So, do I have to hire someone more affordable or I can represent myself? Please let me know the best way. Thank you
dear sir what you have is a post-conviction matter violation of probation we would charge you a lot more than she would....
