I had a dui last November. No one was injured, and my car insurance paid off the damages to other cars. Now a year later I am being called back into court for restitution, the person who is suing me was one of the owners of the car I hit. It is for 10,000 dollars. I am on welfare and food stamps, have no bank account and no property. I have been doing the community service and dui school. I have been doing everything right since this happened. What am I looking at as far as going to court and telling them I have no money?

Our minivan was broadsided on the driver's side by an oncoming pickup truck driven by a drunk driver. The impact shattered all the windows on that side and all the side curtain air bags deployed. My husband suffered some injury to his neck and shoulder and he was transported to the ER soon after the accident. My son who was sitting on the side the truck hit also has pain in his neck and soreness in his arms and pain in his ear and temple which wasn't immediate until the following day. Our van has been determined to be at a total loss by our insurance adjuster. It was just paid off in December and was in excellent condition and very low mileage.
Absolutely, you have a slam dunk PI case. I suggest contacting an ecperienced PI attorney.
I have supervised probation for 3 years and i can't even go out of states for work. I tried last time with PO and he didn't let me go to east coast for my job. My job needs to travel nationwide. So how shall i do? Let my job lose because of probation? Is there any way and chance to terminate my probation? This is my first crime and very little one. Should i request for more jail time to terminate probation right away. I just want to keep my job and free to go anywhere in US. Otherwise, i have no way to pay the restitution fees of $5000 dollar. I just want to finish this up soon!I already served my jail time at the county jail for 6 months. Just probation made me so annoy for my job!

I'm on formal probation about to be put on court probation (no supervision). My question is will I be violated for an incident that occurred 4 months before I was put on probation? I just got a letter today from the court in regard to VC 23152 a, VC 20002 a, HS 11375 B 2 that occurred in may of 2009. Since this incident is unrelated and happened before I was put on probation will there be any violations? Thanks
An incident that occurred before you were put on probation is not a violation of probation but a conviction for it can be.
I was arrested for a DUI but did not intentionally or knowingly consume alcohol prior to driving. I had what I thought was orange juice that may have actually contained champagne. What do I do? What kind of evidence do I need to present in court? Do I need witnesses to testify that I did not know this? I was at work and a work event prior to the arrest, driving straight from work to home. I prefer not to involve my coworkers in this as it would impact my career.

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.
