My sister is an idiot. She was convicted of a DUI in January. In June she was arrested and charged with the following: M VC14601.2(A) Drive W/License Suspended For Drunk Driving I VC16028(A) Fail To Provide Evidence Financial Responsibility M PC166(A)(4) Contempt Of Court:Disobey Court Order/Process She blew off her court date in September and now there's a bench warrant issued for her. My question is, if she just lets the bench warrant hang like so many people do, will it effect the fact that her unsupervised probation is up in January?
Count on it. That may well trigger her being picked up on the bench warrant. She needs a lawyer and perhaps some...
Should I disclose Misdemeanor convictions on a college application, if those convictions have been dismissed by PC 1203.4?
I was convicted of 2 misdemeanors: Wet and Reckless and Driving on a suspended license. Both cases were dismissed by PC 1203.4 and 1203.4a. I am applying to a private medical college (majoring in nursing); when asked on the application "have you been convicted of a misdemeanor?" what should I say? I don't want to incriminate myself needlessly-- yet I don't want to get caught in a half-truth.
.. You generally do not have to disclose expunged or dismissed misdemeanor convictions that is the idea of the...
Should I get an attorney? What are my chances of getting a wet reckless or getting the case dismissed?
Should I get an attorney? What are my chances of getting a wet reckless or getting the case dismissed? I was pulled over because one of the headlights was out, not because of my driving. When they did a breathalyzer 15 - 20 min later I blew a .097 and when they asked me if I wanted a official breathalyzer or blood test I opted for the blood test. About 20-30 min later my blood was drawn, they took me back to the station to wait for my parents to come get me, no fingerprints or anything. What should I do?
You need a lawyer. It's that simple.
How do judges deal with diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic's that cant comply with court orders due to their illness?
Like a schizophrenic got a DUI, lost hes license and is ordered to attend AA. But the schizophrenic cant take the bus because he doesn't want to be in danger or harm someone.
Not taking the bus due to psychiatric illness does not eliminate all means of complying with the court order.
Under CA Civil Code 1786.18 will my DUI show up on a typical employer background check 7 years after the date of the conviction?
I know that you must disclose for law enforcement jobs and where applicable.
To the extent they are both aware of and follow California law and that they define themselves as an "investigative...

What are my likely consequences after receiving my first DUI offense with a BAC of .19 and being under the age of 21?
I received my first DUI about a month ago. I just received my BAC results of .19. I am under the age of 21 and unfortunately got into a car accident. I was the only person involved in the accident. I requested a DMV hearing and was able to extend my license until the hearing date. However, I'm curious as to how difficult it will be to be able to obtain a restricted license to and from work? I'm currently living on my own and working to pay for my college tuition. Also, what are the other likely consequences and fines I'll be facing?
You're certainly in a tough spot. You did a good job requesting a hearing. I hope you've continued that by looking...
