I got a DUI and took a blood test instead of using a breathalyzer. I'm wondering if my results come back high, would it even be useful to have a lawyer. I am told that lawyer can't do much in terms of lowering class time and can only lower "jail" time. My friend's BAC was .25 and she was sentenced to 9 months class time and only five hours community service on top of the night she did in jail. If I have no hope of lowering my class time and might only be sentenced to a 5 hours service, what is the benefit of a lawyer? I am a first time offender in a fairly lenient city. Also, if I want to have my blood retested, do I have to have a lawyer in order to do that or can I make the request on my own? I know that I will not get the BAC results until after my arraignment date.
The same benefits if your BAC is not high. Review your case in great detail to find a jury issue so that the DA will buckle.
This is the first and only offense I have ever had. No one was hurt and there were no accidents resulting from this. I am off probation. Am trying to find out if this is a good option for me as I need to travel to Canada periodically to visit family. If this is expunged, would it clear me for entry into Canada? This may be better route in lieu of the TRP and Criminal Rehab process required for future visits to Canada. Thank you.
How long have you been off probation? Have you had any other convictions since then? You can contact the U.S....
Because this was my second DUI, my license was revoked and I have to appeal to get privileges back in Michigan. Is there a period of time it drops off and I can apply again? Or, because I now live in San Francisco and it was 9 years ago, can I simply take the California Driver's test and get a CA driver's license?
Go to the CA DMV and apply for a license. See what happens. Worst case, you will be required to have your license...
It's been 7 years now, and I'm worried if I come back they are going to try the case and give me the max amount of time if not more??? Suggestions anyone??? I didnt even move to CA until 5 years ago. Still, I'm worried about what I'm facing , if I come back. I know there was a warrant issued at first, but wasn't sure if it would still be active???
This question makes no sense. Are you in CA or NC? Why do you think this in civil court and not criminal? You would be...
It was considered my 3rd DUI. 2 previous DUI's were a few weeks shy of 10 years past. Plead guilty and given 2.5 years. Panicked and didn't return for incarceration. Lost a great opportunity/job because of my blemished past. Can't even get authorized to ride a moped to get access to other jobs further away. Is there any hope for me?

I have already answered this question. I believe you may have accidentally reposted it. Good luck.
