I was arrested 4th of july weekend. Pulled over in toy r us parking lot, not read my rights, passed field sobriety test from my point of view but they took blood at the station. On the citation they did not check off BAC level or anything, I had a couple beers early that day then ate BBQ then later that night have a couple while playing pool. They got half the people that were at the pool hall that night. Need some sound advice on how to proceed about this. I was not intoxicated or believe i was not over the limit from my understanding. This happened in visalia ca.

In 2009 I plead guilty to driving on a suspended license and my sentence on the count record says "Sentenced stayed". The original suspension was in 2004 for 3 years. DMV says my license is revoked until 2013. I don't understand the discrepency
The DMV and the court system are 100% separate. The DMV not the court controls what happens to your license. Sentence...
So upon sentencing of my 3rd DUI in VNCH, my sentencing required 137 days jail ( i did 2 days) 104 AA classes and 257$ fine.
I have completed all. My attorney stated that since i already completed 18 months of Alcohol education on my prior, the was no req. for it on this case, nor was it stated on my sentencing sheet. I just called DMV, MAU and the lady, stated my license is revoked for 3 years which i know, when i asked what can i do to get it reinstated, she said 12 months of an 18 month Alcohol class, when i said my terms and attorney stated i didn't need to, She says,'Either do it or DON'T" (someone didn't get laid i guess) and hung up. I called my Alcohol class and they are sending me my completion on the second DUI showing i finished my 18 months. What are my options at this point? Any help would be greatly appreciated, the attorneys on this board are so knowledgeable. Thank you and GOD BLESS.
The DMV and the court are two separate things. In order to get a license back, the DMV can require you to do things...
Received a "Los Angeles County Jail booking and property record" pink sheet that shows an arraign date of 7/14/14. Attend?
This was a sheet that was filled out and given after being booked for suspicion of DUI. This pink piece of paper outlines personal belongings at time of booking. It shows a date 7/14/14 8:30 AM at a court for arraign date. At the time of release from an overnight stay at Los Angeles County Jail, a yellow DUI ticket was issued with a court appearance date in October. There is confusion to know if it is still a requirement to go to the date specified on the pink sheet which shows 7/14/14, or if its just mandatory to go to the date specified on the yellow ticket. If anyone can please help and write about what it means for this arraign date? Thank You!
When were you arrested. The October date seems right if you were released. Ask your attorney.
I have been charged with a DUI in Van Nuys and refused all the tests. I was arrested, booked, bail was set at 15k.
After spending the night in jail, I was released without having to post bail. I am aware of the DMV proceedings. My question pertains to the court proceedings. After about 3 weeks of my arrest, my attorney (also, a close friend with no experience, representing me for free) made the first appearance for me before the court after which she informed me that the judge ordered AA meetings 2 times a week for the DURATION of my case. How often is this seen? Is the Van Nuys court more strict on refusals? Any answers are very much appreciated.
All courts tried to order AA for years but his was found to be unconstitutional because they are religiously based....
