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....
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?
I would be surprised to find that Ca did not have a process for the issuanceof some form of restricted license or...
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...

SCRAM providers are located throughout CA. You really need to consult with an experienced DUI Attorney in Riverside...
No prior criminal record. Currently I'm represented by the public defender. My two attorneys say they don't believe the DA knows about the other case (they both think I have no crim. record with no pending cases). In essence I'm being offered two different first time DUI offenses. Is this right? If I plead in one, will I immediately have a DUI and then when pleading on the second be pleading to a "second time DUI". My attorneys appear not to know the answer to this question. Thank you.
This kind of thing can happen. Generally it happens when the second DUI is on top of the first and both DUI's are in...
I received a DUI on June 30, 2014. Court date was November 6, 2014. I have not received any papers from the Courts to date. Is this common? Has anyone seen or experience a client in my situation and finally did receive court papers? Thank you.
Yes. This is a lot more common than you think. I assume you went to your court date and they told you there was no...
I got a wet wreck less my first charge almost three years ago. I ended up crashing my car into a tree with passengers. I am being tried with five years prison time. Is this really going to happen? I have a current lawyer but I feel like he isn't doing an amazing job on trying to keep me out of prison because of my mothers need of a person at home 24/7. Help? Please.
If you do not feel like your current attorney is doing everything possible to help you, ask to speak to him face to...
