Forms and fees for DUI Expungement in California.
Hi , I had a DUI a few years ago. Completed all terms of probation including fines and programs. No probation violations. I would like to expunge my record and I would like to know the forms that i have to file and how much would those forms cost. I was convicted in the Los angeles county.
There is always a danger trying to DIY these things yourself. My advice is to have an experienced DUI lawyer handle...
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...
DUI (Propable Cause)
It was me and 2 of my buddies. All three of us on motorcycles. We were stopped at a red light when we heard "pull over into the parking lot" over a loud speaker. Assuming it was a police officer we pulled over. It was CHP. He said he clocked us (as in all of us) at about 70 in a 35 zone. I blew .15 on the breathalyzer. I'm aware that that's high. I'm not denying my intoxication. My question is, is it possible for one radar gun to clock 3 moving motorcycles speed at the same time? Also, can he prove which motorcycle he clocked at 70 if we were riding pretty close together? Finally, can one clocked speed prove that all 3 of us were speeding? I'm trying to figure out if I have a case or if I should just save my time and money and plead guilty. I'm not looking for hope. Just honesty. Thankyou
1) is it possible for one radar gun to clock 3 moving motorcycles speed at the same time? No, it is not possible...
LVN license appeal. DUI misdemeanor
I graduated LVN school May 2014 & I passed my LVN state boards September 2014 first attempt. I received a congratulations in the mail about me passing my state boards but due to a DUI misdemeanor I received 2012 I am unable to receive my license. I appealed it & months has passed and I have now received a first class documentation from the court in regards to my appeal. It gave me an option to withdrawal my appeal, forward with my appeal and talk to the judge OR do something called a stipulation? I'm not sure what a stipulation is? I did everything that was required for my DUI... Alcohol program, breathalyzer, reinstated my license, everything... but i am still on probation until 2016 which is why i was denied my license. I'm not sure what to do now? Should I seek a lawyer?
You should at least consult with a lawyer, preferably one who is familiar with licensing issues. You might be able to...
Dui for Marijuana help
This is confusing bit I really hope one of you can answer this. I'm 16 years old. About three weeks ago I got pulled over in California for Driving under the influence of Marijuana. Igot my license taken away and since then I got it back in the mail. The court said they are still investigating the Dui and that I will know Within 30 days. I'm still waiting on that.Last nnight I got pulled over for driving with 4 friends in the car. The cop gave me a ticket for disobeying a probation license. My question is, Can the courts review the ticket I just got last night and use it to make their decision to prosecute me of my Dui. Sorry I tried to word that the best way possible. And if you can also answer what do you think will happen with each incident? The dui and the ticket? Thanks alot -sam
First of all, the court is not the entity responsible for prosecuting and hence initiating criminal proceedings. The...

DUI Case of an LVN
My friend was caught for speeding and had a DUI of .09 last Saturday. Does he need to inform right away his employer? He is currently at work right now. Is there a possibility that his license will be revoked even if it's only .09. The cop got his license (but he got a temporary license for driving) and his court hearing is May 13. He is confused on what to do.
Your friend has a lot to lose both in court and potentially with the LVN licensing agency. When one is confused and...
