I received a 2nd dui 7 years later and would like to know the minimum amount of jail time and community service I could potentially receive. I have heard anywhere from 48 hours to 90 days is required no matter what. I am seeking a gauge to know what the range is.
Three to five years of summary probation. A minimum of 96 hours to a maximum of one year in a county jail. Between $...
Hi, I got second dui with bac .15 last night and also a hit and run. Accident was very very small no injury at all. Cops didn't see me driving they tracked my number plate based on person's complaint and came to my house. My first dui was in August so I have got 2 dui withing 1.5 month. What are the chances o jail? What's maximum jail? Please help me being a weekend I am not able to call and talk to any attorney which is making it more tough
Anytime someone is arrested while having pending charges the court and/or prosecutor will not look at the cases...
Thank you for your time. I recently had my first DUI in February. It was lowered to a wet reckless and I have a three month restricted license. My restricted license ended on August 25th but I didn't realize that that was only for the restriction and that my temporary license was only good through May 28, 2014. Fast forward to September 21, 2014, I was driving on 680 N going towards Livermore when CHP pulls me over for having my original paper plates on my car (not the car I had my DUI in, i mention this because the officer asked). I realize this was a dumb move. I had the plate on me but have been lazy to put them on. So the officer cited me for VC12500 Driver Unlic Misdeamor and S200 No Plates. So my question is should I hire an attorney and what would be a fair retainer fee?
When the DMV suspends your license it does so for 4 months on a first offense. Generally you get the license suspended...
No felonies , no tickets ,clean record I am curious to know what if dmv Oakland suspends my license will it still be considered a dui and I won't be able to eligible for any goverment jobs or any other enforcement jobs ? I m worried ,big mistake learnt my lesson ,someone please advise
It will be a DUI suspension, but not a DUI conviction. If all you have a dmv suspension, you have nothing to worry...
I have a prior DUI 10+ years ago. Will this become pertinent in this case? What can I expect the outcome to be in San Jose?
An old DUI is unlikely to have much affect on your case. for best rests, hire an attorney to try to negotiate this away.
Received dui then moved to Oregon and completed dui classes but never paid fines.. Court requesting interlock device and now fines are totaling close to 6,000 dollars.. What can I do to get license back? Is there anyway to see judge to get fines reduced and to drop interlock device or to get restricted license?
Dropping the IID is unlikely. Fines could be subject to reduction or a payment plan. Certainly do not drive in Oregon...
I under extreme pressure of two jobs agreed to a plea bargain after I negotiated Work Release Program days down. What I did not take into affect was the IId requested for a year. I work in a large corporation where my exact position requires me to drive my car, clients to what is called ride a longs for outdoor advertising. This is pertinent for my employment. I made the court appeal date within the allotted 30 days and read at the SCU Law Library that a plea bargain can be modified within the exact wording of the plea bargain. I do not need to change the sentencing but rather the exact punishment. If I owed the court $5 pay them in $4 dollar ones and 4 quarters. Same $5 but a different delivery of the punishment. Is this doable?
I'm confused as to what you are seeking. Are you wanting to modify the terms of probation? Withdraw your plea? Please...
