Modesto Law

So they found paraphernalia and of course I was under the influence of a controlled substance. They hadn't filed charges until now. Do I have any chance at beating this? And if so how much will itcost do I need a lawyer
yes you need a lawyer. Well the alcohol level is low the DMV will not take action to suspend your license at the moment....
I left the bar around 1:00am, shortly after pulling out a cop tailed me and pulled me over. He had me do field sobriety tests which resulted in me doing a breathalyzer. The first blow, I blew .10, we waited about 1 minute and blew again, I blew .06, we then proceeded several times. Each time the breathalyzer said I was sucking air back, after several tests he radioed in that his breathalyzer was down. Back up arrived about 10-15 minutes later, and used the new machine giving about the same reading. My question is, I blew .10 once on each machine, but never twice on the same machine. Is it mandatory to perform the operation twice on the same machine? And is this a case I could fight? Or should I just plead guilty?
If all of the facts you stated are accurate, there appears to be a valid legal issue as to whether any of the breath...
I got a DUI a while back that didn't seem right when I went to the hearing they said it was still under investigation when I went to the second hearing the judge had a letter from the DA asking for more time and he asked if it was ok with me and I said yes
Your situation is unclear. Hard to tell whether a case was filed, whether the "more time" was for more time to file or...
We have an immigration attorney and he said that my fiance has a chance of getting out while we fight for cancellation of removal. Is that true? And also how long can it take to fight for cancellation of removal? My fiance has been here since 2002. Went to school here. Came with permission, never went back. Works. Pays taxes. My sole source of income.
Your attorney would know best.
I was never supposed to drive that night, but my friend got extremely drunk.. ended up throwing up and handed me her keys. We were stalled at a green light because she was puking everywhere and I immediately got pulled over. I gave the officer my first and last name, because it is what I primarily go by and I was scared out of my mind. Not thinking straight at all. When he couldn't find me in the system he charged me with lying to him on top of having a .12 BAC What will happen at my court date? Will I be facing jail time?
You may or may not be actually charged with they lying by the time the charged by the DA. You do face jail time, but...

My brother is a serious alcoholic and is facing a court date for his 3rd DUI in the last 3-5 years. WE have tried to talk to him about his problem but he won't have it. So, now that he is on his 3rd arrest, thank God, no one has been hurt or killed yet, what can he expect his sentence to be like? Will it be mandatory jail time or is it possible he may be offered a rehab program?
On a third offense, he is looking at mandatory jail time. Not work release. He needs an attorney. In addition to that,...
