Where can I veiw my blood test results?
I was arrested for DUI RX and the DMV hearing was set aside. Would I have been able to view my blood test results there? Who would have the results at this time and how can I view them before my court date?
Generally, you should receive a packet of documents called "discovery" from the city attorney who is prosecuting your...
DMV doesn't offer an IID for motorcycle, what if I don't have a car?
I was convicted of 1st offense DUI. DMV sent me a notice to get an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) for my vehicle for 6 months but I sold my car last year when I received the DUI and have been riding a motorcycle. DMV doesn't offer an IID for motorcycle so I'm forced to get an IID Exemption. DMV says it takes 4-6 weeks to get a decision on the IID Exemption but it has been 10 weeks. Is there any other legal solution since the DMV does not offer IID for motorcycles but it is a requirement?
Unfortunately there is not. At this point there is no IID for a motorcycle and I highly doubt there will be one in the...
My two knuckle-head friends were shooting at each other with pellet guns while drunk. One of them shot the other in the chest.
The bullet went through her body and the doctors are not sure whether she will survive or not. Keep in mind that it was a complete accident and the other girl, I think, will most likely survive. The other one got arrested and was released on bail and was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Is it possible to point out to the DA that they were drunk and not in the usual state of mind during the incident? Can the charges be lowered in this unfortunate case in any way? What are some possible outcomes? It was an accident, the other person will not press charges and she was under the influence of alcohol. (I'm hoping that the whole alcohol thing could help her out although it probably is my wishful thinking).
Individuals do not make a decision whether to "press charges" or not. The District Attorney reviews police reports to...

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...
DUI and house arrest
I had a DUI eight years ago. I recently got a DUI and I have been told by the District's Attorney that I face jail time. I have a job and wish to continue to work and also begin attending AA meetings. Would requesting house arrest be appropriate in my situation, given that I had a DUI 8 years ago?
Sure, that's an appropriate request, but one that's best made by your lawyer. Don't try to do this yourself. Retain...
Can I get an extension from a DUI fine that was charged as exhibition of speed from the judge?
The clerk granted me 3 months but I mentioned I needed more time and she said I would need to see the judge.
Generally a judge can be asked any question that modifies the minute order. Yes. Have your attorney or you schedule a...
