What are my chances of getting a decent public defender for a 1st time DUI in the city of Monterey Park, CA.
I was involved in a traffic accident 4 years ago. I had cut all ties to my family which is where the Sheriff's have been looking for me. I have recently started speaking to my family again and was informed that there is a warrant out for my arrest. I never received a ticket or citation when the accident happened and no blood work or urine test was done. My family was informed that due to the fact that there was a 17 year old passenger in the car I was being charged with child endangerment. I am currently unemployed and have no funds to pay for a lawyer. Most of the jobs I have tried to apply for require a driver's license so I need to get this big mistake resolved. Should I turn myself in and cross my fingers that I get a public defender that will fight for me?
If you can’t afford a private attorney you need get a public defender. You do not want to handle this case on your own....
How do I get a restricted license after I have been convicted of a DUI
I have been convicted of a DUI and I was able to get a grant for a restricted license by the superior court, however I am underage (19) and wanted to know where I am suppose to go from here in order to obtain my restricted license. Do I still need to file another petition to the DMV?

Projected Release date
My boyfriend was sentenced to State Prison for 16 months due to his fifth time DUI within 10 years. When I search at the LA County Sheriffs, they state "SP3" which means his paper is in process to Prison, but under the heading "RELEASE", they state the projected release date is 12/12/2009. Does that mean he will be release from state prison on that date? He was sent to jail on 8/21/2009, how come suddenly he can be released so early? Should he be in state prison for at least half of the sentence, i.e. 8 months? Thanks in advance for your advice!
Did he do anytime in county jail while waiting for the case to resolve? Good luck with the situation. Matthew...
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...
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...

2nd DUI with bodily injury and Child Endangerment
Dad drove drunk with our children ages 3 and 6 at the time. This is his second offense DUI and as a result of the accident our daughter received a large laceration across her forehead. Our son was not in proper booster seat and our daughter was not properly strapped into her car seat. From what Ive read in the reports he also hit parked cars and driving in a car that was not his. What I would like to know if he's facing any jail time? He's also evaded the law from arrest and finally got arrested on a warrant last month. The accident happened in Nov and he was let out of jail on imperative reasoning. So Im trying to understand whats more likely to happen during the trial.
The bodily injury to others means that the DA can charge it as a felony offense. Particularly given the child...
