I was arrested for a DUI in CA in Jan. of 2011. I believe they told me I blew a .16. I went to court, did the community service and alcohol classes. I haven't completely paid off the fine yet. I also had to put an IID in my car. I had only just had the device installed in 2013 and my car broke down in the summer so I never completed the program. In Oct. 2013 I was pulled over on my way to work, driving my cousins truck and the officers said I blew .08. I spent the weekend and an additional 3 days in jail but never made it to court so they released me. I just received a warrant in the mail with a misdemeanor charge "(m) vc14601.1(a)" I looked up the charge and it seems to be just driving on a suspended license. Should I turn myself in? And what type of punishment am I facing?
According to the vehicle code, a first time violation for 14601.1 requires a minimum of 5 days and a maximum of six...
If so, how do I go about it? Do I just ask the judge in court?
Such legally desirous effect should be assessed by an experienced California licensed counsel familiar with local court...
Hired a private attorney, but wish to get a 2nd opinion on the plea bargain offered by the DA. I ask, because I do not feel that my attorney did an adequate job representing me or feel comfortable with my attorney (due to lack of communication). Background: 1. Was pulled over on the freeway for speeding by CHP; 2. Admitted to alcohol consumption, performed FST, and performed on-site PAS (performed 3x, blew ~0.10%); 3. Charged with VC 23152 (A) & (B); 4. Performed blood chemical test, which came back to be 0.10% BAC; 5. Lost DMV APS hearing; 6. Clean criminal/traffic record. Plea bargain was to drop VC 23152 (A) charge, but plead guilty/no contest to VC 23152 (B) charge. Was hoping for a wet reckless. I understand the need to review all the evidence, but any help would be appreciated.
The offer that you describe is neither good nor bad. It is just standard. For a wet reckless to be offered, there...
2 people were driving drunk down the freeway, then crashes into a ditch. The driver arbitrarily claims that the passenger was the driver to the police officer, yet the passenger did not want the driver to get in trouble so the passenger took the blame for it. The passenger was convicted of a DUI and is now struggling with money. This was ~2 years ago
At this point it is doubtful if anything can be done. Too much time has gone by and you plead guilty to charges. You...
My husband, parents, 2 kids and I were sightseeing when our minivan was hit head-on by another car from the opposite side. My elderly parents were rushed to ER and had to be hospitalized in the ICU for 2 days. They are now recovering from a fracture and severe jaw injuries. The rest of us are bruised and traumatized. The police report clearly says the other driver was under the influence of alcohol and drugs, was speeding and had crossed the double yellow lines during the incident. We are still talking with a few personal injury lawyers. I want to know how much compensation should we expect while dealing with the insurance people? My parents are scheduled to leave for their home country next week.
Sorry to hear about your accident. Without more information--such as that you have provided to the personal injury...
