I received informal probation from a DUI in 2010. It is set to end this year in July. This morning I received a citation for driving in the carpool lane. I am curious to see if this will affect my probation and if it will effect me negatively in any way.
Most traffic infractions cannot be used to violate probation. If you're on DUI probation, there are some important...
I was pulled over at highway 280 for speeding around 85mph. CHP asked me if I drank any thing I said no at the time but later I told him one drink. I did the sobriety test and blew the breathalyzer and got .09. When I arrived at jail I got .08 for first time and .07 15 minutes later. I was cooperative during the arrest and when I was in custody. Do I have a chance to lower my DUI to wet reckless?
That .07 will save you a world of hurt with DMV... your license should be on it's way back to you in a few weeks (...

you should contact an attorney immediately to discuss more specific facts about your case you did not say why the CHP...
Got a restricted license due to first offense DUI which allows me to drive to/from/course of employment, and to/from DUI program. I am required to do 2 days of community service via the Sheriff's Work Program. Can I drive my car to these court ordered programs as well? and to the Sheriff's station for the initial interview? These are part of the requirements of my DUI conviction, so shouldn't they count as a "DUI program"? Thank you!
No. Unless you were convicted of a DUI in one of the pilot counties of Sacramento, Alameda, Tulare or Los Angeles and...
I am on an H1-B visa. The visa stamp in my passport expired and I need to get it renewed when I travel to my home country. In January 2014 I was arrested on charges of a DUI i.e. VC 23152(A). The DA dropped the case in March 2014 even before the first court hearing. The DMV case is still pending. If I were to travel abroad, would I face issues in getting the visa stamp in passport renewed? What steps and documentation can I carry to avoid trouble with getting my visa renewed?
I am not what you mean by "the DMV case is still pending". If you were not convicted, the dismissed DUI charge would...
My son got pulled over Saturday for a DUI. He was .09 (one point over the legal limit). He has no priors. He has never been in trouble. He was booked and spent 7 hours in jail. They gave him a provisional license. They did not tow his vehicle. He goes to court in April. We can't afford a lawyer. I've never been in trouble, neither has he. We do not know what to expect or do. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
He has 10 days to schedule a DMV hearing. If he does not request one, his license will get suspended, no questions...
I found a few errors in my DUI Police report. I was stopped at 2215 & the Trombetta advisement was 2101. Is it possible that my saliva from a straw at the bar was collected before I was stopped? The reason why I ask, there was this man in the bar insisting on buying me a drink and then he disappeared and my empty glass was gone as well. The poilice report states that I initially refused the Field breathilizer test, and he then states that he placed me under arrest, and then I said I would agree to the test. He failed to mention in the police report that he threatened me with 2 years suspended license, "do you understand that?". The other observation I see is that at approx 2215 hours he pulled me over and my breathilizer tests were at 2225 & 2229, that's not 15 mins wait.
Wow. You have a lot of questions. I will answer one, and leave the rest to a DUI attorney. If can can afford one,...
