South Lake Tahoe Law

A friend informed me of this and I am curious if it is true as I greatly want to go but have had two DUI's, one nine years ago and one within the past three years.
Under Canadian law, if you have just one California DUI conviction, even for a wet reckless on your record, you may not...
my son got a dui in his driveway, to make it worse on his 25th birthday when ins. rates drop. hes a student in college and has 2 jobs. He has always been very very responsible regarding driving and has no tickets on his record to date. he was not coming home, but was thinking about leaving after a argument with his girl, when a neighbor called cops. he gave a lawyer 500 bucks and still hasn't seen discovery. what type of defense does he have? can you tell me approx. cost for this type of case and what chance does he have to be acquitted. thank you
If he has already retained an attorney, he needs to address this question to the attorney. $500 is a very minimal...
I am on alternate sentencing in Nevada for 3rd DUI, DUI diversion program. I initially signed up for this program to divert prison and after 1 1/2 year in this program they rules keep changing and threatening me with jail if the new stipulations are not met. I am a disabled Veteran I have been on prescription meds and now they tell me I cannot take what my doctor prescribes me due to rule changes. I take narcotics to relieve the pain from my knees, back, and headaches and take antidepressants for my PTSD. I have been off my meds for over three weeks and it is hard for me to function in daily activities I have to do as a man. Is this legal?
Yes, you agreed to enter the program to avoid jail time. It is not right that they will not allow you do take what your...
My interlock device has malfunctioned repeatedly. I have had it replaced twice in two months. The malfunctions were device related--I have not touched a drink snce t was installed. I use my car to drive to and from work and for life n general. I drive up and over squirrly mountain passes in conditions that would have your heart stop in good weather---let alone when there is 20 inches of snow and and sharp turns that have 3000" drops on each side (think Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe). The device requires a random test every 3 to 15 minutes. This requires picking up the device WHILE drivng, blowing into it for 15-20 seconds with your head down and hoping it registers. ALL this WHILE driving. This is dangerous to me and others and is costly to have a required reset.
Unfortunately you cannot get it removed- at least not without court order. Speak to your attorney.
The officer took my license and gave me a 30 day temporary license and my license will be suspended for a year upon expiration. He told me to call the DMV about a restricted license for college. What are my chances of getting one?
These are very hard to get. Make sure you contact the DMV with 10 days and get an attorney. Many times your attorney...
I went to court on 9/8 and no charges had been filed. Isnt' there a time line on when this needs to be done. I call every week with the same answer still no charges. Isnt' there a right to a speedy trial, so when charges need to be filed in a timely fashion?
There is a right to speedy trial, but courts have routinely held that delays of over a year often do not trigger speedy...
I have dui & go to court, but its very far from my house & I have a med condition and cant travel. What do I need to do to ask the court to move my case to another court in the same county but thats closer to my house
It is very unusual for a court to allow this. The best advice is for you to hire a DUI attorney. An attorney can make...
