Palo Alto Law

I under extreme pressure of two jobs agreed to a plea bargain after I negotiated Work Release Program days down. What I did not take into affect was the IId requested for a year. I work in a large corporation where my exact position requires me to drive my car, clients to what is called ride a longs for outdoor advertising. This is pertinent for my employment. I made the court appeal date within the allotted 30 days and read at the SCU Law Library that a plea bargain can be modified within the exact wording of the plea bargain. I do not need to change the sentencing but rather the exact punishment. If I owed the court $5 pay them in $4 dollar ones and 4 quarters. Same $5 but a different delivery of the punishment. Is this doable?
I'm confused as to what you are seeking. Are you wanting to modify the terms of probation? Withdraw your plea? Please...

I was convicted of a DUI two and a half years ago and recently received a bill in the mail from CHP attempting to collect $1650 from me for costs associated with their time and my incarceration. Two cars were involved in a traffic collision, no parties were injured or taken to the hospital. The road did require clean up from collision. The paper from CHP does not even state the correct City where the incident took place (states Redwood City, it was Palo Alto). What is the best response and how do I avoid paying it? I don't have the funds; I filed Chapter 7 a year ago.

I was not speeding or driving wrecklessly. I just had a left taillight out. My BAC was shown to be a 0.08 with a breathalyzer.
Hire an attorney. You only have 10 days to contact the DMV to schedule a hearing to preserve your driver’s license....
the officer who pulled me over for cutting off someone did not have a breathalyzer and even after passing the sober tests he took me to the station for a blood test (i wont pass that one for sure and its very likely above 0.08) . i'm worried now that they might find cocaine too and as a consequence i have to face jail. i was in rehab and sober living and working on my sobriety but i slipped about 3-4 days before i got arrested. i moved to mississippi to work again on my sobriety. i have to go back to CA in three weeks for court.
Having cocaine or other control substances found in your blood as a result of a DUI test this does not necessarily mean...
