I completed my 18 month program two weeks ago. Apparently, the class was supposed to be cone by September, unbeknownst to me. Now, I check the mail and there is a bench warrant because I did not finish the class by the allotted time due to me using up all the allowed absences. I have a date and time to show up to court, but I wanted to know what are the possible outcomes for this. I called the clerk's office but all she said is that I needed to show up. I would much rather have a public defender or an attorney to go in for me, just in case they would want to arrest me right then and there. Thanks!
Relax. If you completed the class and the program submitted the certificate of completion, you'll be fine. The judge...
Parked car with ignition off, eating fast food with a friend. Sheriff Deputy, stops and knocked on window asking for roll down. Points to an old dent and asked if I was in an accident. Told him "No" the damage was old. Officer stated that that he smelled alcohol on my person and ordered me to do a field balance test. Stated that I passed. He then asked me to take a PAS test and I refused. He stated that if I refused I would go to jail. I took the test and registered a .08.6% He then arrested me for DUI.
You need to retain an attorney and challenge the legality of the stop. There are several attorneys from San...
Was offered three separate plea bargains that I turned down, finally DA ends up dismissing both M148, M647 charges and adds a third of I415 on. Why dismiss the others, and add one more? What does this third charge after dismissal on other two mean, and why?
Why do this? To obtain a conviction of some sort. The fact that the other two charges were dismissed first really...
The sober driver ran out of gas while giving rides home the next morning after drinking the night before. The truck was parked in a residential area as safely as possible. Two of the three passengers went for gas with one of the two gas cans that were in the vehicle. The police stopped, seen the truck, questioned my son, my son told the officer's his friends went for gas, but before they could return, the officer seen the other gas can, had him put the few drops that were in it, which was for an ATC ,then the officers gave my son a DUI. Gave him a breath test 3 times, the officer said the breathalizer didn't work correctly, took him in, and without his permission took blood
Your mention several facts that could be important but certainly not enough to say do it yourself. There could be a...
First time dui with a clean record. My car broke down on the freeway, resulting in me having to push it to the side of the road. I stood outside of the vehicle the entire time, waiting for AAA to arrive, when a highway patrol car pulled up behind me. The cop asked me to perform a series of field sobriety tests. I blew a 0.12, and was promptly arrested. The cop had no visual evidence of me sitting behind the wheel or driving in this state however. From his perspective, I was standing outside the entire time, and his tests were conducted on speculation alone. He didn't even pull me over. Can a dui attorney successfully argue my case to be dropped based on this?
You can be arrested for a DUI on certain circumstantial evidence of driving even if the arresting officer didn't...
got pulled over Feb 2014, did the field test and breath test at the spot. Taken back to the station and did blood test. Report shows that I have a .09 BAC, a lost of people had told me I have a chance to get a wet reckless. Is that true? I asked twice in a pre-trail and was declined. I have another trail tomorrow before going into actual trail, if the DA refuse to bring it down to reckless.
do you have an attorney without knowing other particular facts its tough to evaluate your case. You should post about...
I'm 20 years old, my bac was .11. My officer never read me my Miranda rights. My car wasn't initially towed because I was being cooperative. I am a full time student and I have countless community service hours and this DUI charge is the only thing I have on my record. DUI took place in San Dimas which is LA County.
Maybe--but a lot more information is needed and a thorough review of the facts just be conducted. I suggest that if...
