Whats the best and worst case scenario after getting charged with misdemeanor Dui in Ventura County?
I blew .13 BAC. I was pulled over due to headlights not being on as it was a 2015 electric Fiat which doesnt have auto headlights. I have a clean driving record. the BAC being .13 seems ridiculous as I had 2 coronas and a shot of tequila, mind you i did not eat since 630/7 pm and was pulled over at 230am.
Friend, you need to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney and sooner than later. The clock is ticking with...
Should I fight a DUI charge in which an officer arrested me after my car was broke down and I drank while waiting for the tow?
Car broke down on my way to amusement park with friends. 105 degree heat with no water but a flask in the trunk. We were waiting for about two hours. I had no idea that a Cop needed to be there before we could leave so I drank it. Threw the bottle in the ditch. The cop agreed to give us a ride to the park and smelled the booze and I told it was me and he then arrested me after blowing .11% BAC. I'm broke and can't afford an attorney. Should I fight it. Oh, and my friends had no idea I drank the fifth. What's a guy to do? Thanks.
Yes, if true you should fight it. Not sure about drinking after driving since the other people you were with didn't...
Can I get my license in MN with a bench warrant/DMV hold in CA with a misdemeanor DUI charge in LA County?
I am currently homeless but don't want to come back to CA if I leave for MN. I can't even get myself to the courthouse to turn myself in.
Then how will you get to MN and have a car to drive? If you want a license anywhere else, you need to get your CA...

How do I get my restricted licence un suspended after being dropped from the 18 month DUI program for not being able to pay?
I finally got a restricted licensez after being suspended since December 2008 for 3 DUI's! I have the IID installed, SR 22 insurance, and have been re enrolled in the 18 month DUI class! I'm on SSI and was unable to pay so the school dropped me! Prior to this happening I spoke with my Counselor and the administrator at the DUI program about payment and wasn't offered a sliding scale for payment or even told that once the school dropped me I'd have to complete the 18 month program before qualifying for another restricted license! What do I do now! I have a nine month old daughter and need to drive for her and my classes!
Unfortunately, that program is key. DMV won't release your license until you satisfy that term.
I was arrested for drunk in pub. Went to court. Attorney told me to not pleased guilty. We set another court date. I mixed up the month and missed my court date. 11days later I went in to put myself in calendar to clear up the warrant. Will I be arrested? I'm 22. No proofs other than one red light camera ticket years ago. And I am a young professional with a promising career. Please help. Thankyou
If you already have an attorney, why are you asking for advice from strangers on the Internet? You're much less...
Before this DUI (which i got 0.11%) i had a clean record. Now i am stressing because i don't know what to expect and what to prepare for. I was taking 2 college classes while working part-time, but i recently decided that i want to change career paths, so staying in these classes will be pointless and cause me more stress that i don't need right now but at the same time i know that going to school will look "better", or does that not matter? Because i want to work 2 jobs to pay this thing off before enrolling in different classes next semester. I still have proof that i payed for and attended these classed for a period of time though. what should i expect?
A first appearance is an arraignment. The judge would generally not do more than confirm your name and tell you what...
