A friend of mine is currently incarcerated for his 4th DUI in 10 years, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2014. Technically, it is his 5th, but the first one falls outside the 10-year window (2002). The DUI he received in 2010 was a felony because it was his 4th in 10 years, which makes his most recent a felony as well. He was on probation for the 2010 violation (would have ended July 2015) as well. My question: how much time is he facing? He self-surrendered in November after being on bail for 2 weeks so he could start earning credit toward sentencing. His most recent did not involve injuries (none have, thank goodness). He is involved in an in-jail rehab program, receiving work credit, etc. I am just wondering what possible sentence might be and how probation violation effects it as well. Thank you.
A felony DUI is a wobbler in its penalty. It can be as little as 6 months jail and as much as 3 years state prison....
Do I need a lawyer prior to arraignment? Do I need to report to the medical board prior to conviction?
I drank about 4 standard drinks over 4 hours. I was found at a red light. I had briefly dozed off. I was travelling at 0 mph. I refused a breathalyzer and got my blood BAC about 30-45 minutes later. I am charged and arrested for a DUI 23152(a) in the middle of January. My first court date (arraignment) is in middle of March. I don't think my BAC is over 0.08. #) What are the advantages of getting a lawyer NOW vs. waiting until arraignment and asking for a continuance to get a lawyer IF the case is not dropped or my BAC is >0.08? #) I am a physician. Do I have a responsibility to report to the medical board of california prior to any conviction? I know I need to after conviction.

Police came to house after a reported hit and run. I was drinking but parked my car unaware I hit a vehicle on the way home. Police find me asleep in the backseat. I was still drunk at the time even after hours had past. They instruct me to take a balance test and I failed, then I was taken to the station to get blood drawn. My charges were hit and run, and violating my permit because I was 17. So my charges never indicated I was drinking and driving BUT...the DMV suspended my license or chances of me getting my license I really don't know because the department I need to contact doesn't answer. But the court said the DMV suspended my license for an alcohol related issue. Will this stay on my record with the DMV and/or insurance? Even if it happened when I was 17?
A conviction for DUI is worth two points on your license. Hit and run is also worth two points. You ought to sit down...

You will not need a car to drive anyway because you have lost driving privileges.
