This was a sheet that was filled out and given after being booked for suspicion of DUI. This pink piece of paper outlines personal belongings at time of booking. It shows a date 7/14/14 8:30 AM at a court for arraign date. At the time of release from an overnight stay at Los Angeles County Jail, a yellow DUI ticket was issued with a court appearance date in October. There is confusion to know if it is still a requirement to go to the date specified on the pink sheet which shows 7/14/14, or if its just mandatory to go to the date specified on the yellow ticket. If anyone can please help and write about what it means for this arraign date? Thank You!
When were you arrested. The October date seems right if you were released. Ask your attorney.
After spending the night in jail, I was released without having to post bail. I am aware of the DMV proceedings. My question pertains to the court proceedings. After about 3 weeks of my arrest, my attorney (also, a close friend with no experience, representing me for free) made the first appearance for me before the court after which she informed me that the judge ordered AA meetings 2 times a week for the DURATION of my case. How often is this seen? Is the Van Nuys court more strict on refusals? Any answers are very much appreciated.
All courts tried to order AA for years but his was found to be unconstitutional because they are religiously based....
I became a resident of CA with a valid CA license in 2007. I was charged with a DUI in CA in 2009. I paid ALL fees, attended classes & completed all requirements. In 2012 the CA DMV suspended my license for a 2004 conviction that occurred in my home state of PA where I was a resident at the time. Everything relating to the PA violation was fulfilled in PA. The CA DMV received ALL records relating to this violation. In July of 2013 the CA DMV sent a "set-aside" letter for the aforementioned violation in PA in 2004. Now, it is June of 2014 and my license is still showing as suspended and they will not lift the suspension until an 18-month program has been completed. I have the set-aside letter from the CA DMV that they sent me! Please provide direction for me, how can I resolve this?
