I have two questions, 1 I got a dui in August 2013. The dmv said my license was suspended from September 2013 until September 2014 (I was under 21) but I didn't get charged in court until May 2014. Does the year suspension start when I get the dui or after I'm charged? Question 2, if I get a restricted licenses and pay the reinstatement fee do I have to pay a reinstatement fee again when my suspension is up?
You will probably get hit for two reinstatement fees. Discuss your other questions with your attorney. You had an...
On Sunday my son was arrested and released for misdemeanor dui (in So Cal). On Thursday he is supposed to leave to college out of state. We just noticed some paperwork said he needed the courts permission to leave the state. How is this obtained?
I'm not sure what paperwork you're looking at, but generally a person with a misdemeanor charge is free to travel...
I didnt have the money for my DUI classes. I called my porbabtion officer at the time and even let him know. But they never reached out to me. I lost my job had no phone. And now I think i might have a warrant. How can i avoid Jail time? I just had a baby. I cant be away from my newborn.
I can promise you that you have a warrant. This is NOT GOOD in Ventura County. I wish you had cleared this up before...
I got a ticket for driving on a suspended license for a prior DUI, however my license is only restricted by an IID which I have?
I got pulled over a few weeks ago and the cop gave me a citation for driving on a suspended license, however my physical license says it is only restricted by the interlock, not to mention I have a DMV paper that says the same. I have also completely paid off all my court fines and am almost finished completely my DUI classes, I dropped out for a few months because I couldn't afford all this (I'm a full time student) but I am back enrolled. This is my third driving on a suspended license, the prior two were before I had the IID installed. I thought the whole point to getting the IID installed in my car was so I was legally allowed to drive. Given the fact that I have documentation that supports I had no reason to suspect my license was suspended, how likely am I to get convicted of this?
You should definitely request a hearing for this matter. Once you do you will have the opportunity to present all the...
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...
