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....

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 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...

The clerk granted me 3 months but I mentioned I needed more time and she said I would need to see the judge.

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...
