Will I get charged with a DUI?
Long story short, I got pulled over because my car and I got the description of a person attempting assault. The police officer(s) said if everything was ok I would be let go. Everything was ok but they ended up digging and charged me with a DUI a and b. I went down to the station for a blood test because I refuse the breathlyzer. I just got the results back today, it was a .07. What should I do next? I have had a wet and reckless prior a few years ago, not more than ten unfortunately. I've also read that I should wait and see if the DA will make a case before I contact an attorney, is this true? If so how can I find out? Any information is greatly appreciated.
Taking the wait and see approach is dangerous. An experienced attorney, who practices here and knows all the...
DUI Felony
My fiancé was charged with a felony dui because it was his 4th. However, he was given as part of his punishment so to say that he would have to complete 6 months in an in patient program. We are wondering if there is anything we can do to avoid this since he will loose his job because of this and let's be honest is cutting people off from the ones that love and support them and sticking a bunch of people that have the same issue in a home together a good idea??? But his case was finalized last April and he hasn't had a drink since 2012 when his last dui was. We really need some legal advice and guidance. Thank you for your time.
What you are saying makes little sense. You said that he stopped drinking in 2012....how can that be as he was...

Can a DUI be a sure denial of DACA?
I'm helping a relative with their renewal for DACA. He had a DUI after his first acceptance by DACA. He did not serve time and received community service and classes (no one was injured). This is his first offense (though I am yet unaware of the full charge). I read that USCIS denies cases with 3 misdemeanors, but this is his first offense. He just received an Intent to Deny; I want to know if he can make a good case with the help of a lawyer and actually get accepted for renewal. He has a stable job, just got accepted on to a 4 year University and is a model student. What can he do to fight this situation. Several lawyers are giving him no hope.
The DACA guidelines specifically state that a DUI/ DWI is reason for a denial. However, USCIS has discretion and can...
Dui license suspension
DUI license suspension questions. I was convicted of a DUI in January in my personal vehicle. The DMV suspended my license for 6 months then send me a letter to disqualify my commercial class B for 1 year. My questions are 1. When could i start driving my class C regular driving again 2. Will that downgrade my commercial class B license? So how long do I have to wait if I want to receive my commercial license back? Do i have to take the test again 3. do i have to retake the test after 1 year? 4. So if i want my license back right now they will downgrade my class b to class c and if I wait one year i still have to retake the test again. Then what is the difference?
1. It depends. On a DUI there are typically 2 suspensions. One suspension is 6 months from the court conviction, but...
