DUI and house arrest
I had a DUI eight years ago. I recently got a DUI and I have been told by the District's Attorney that I face jail time. I have a job and wish to continue to work and also begin attending AA meetings. Would requesting house arrest be appropriate in my situation, given that I had a DUI 8 years ago?
Sure, that's an appropriate request, but one that's best made by your lawyer. Don't try to do this yourself. Retain...
My fiancé was charged with a felony dui because it was his 4th. However, he was given as part of his punishment so to say that he would have to complete 6 months in an in patient program. We are wondering if there is anything we can do to avoid this since he will loose his job because of this and let's be honest is cutting people off from the ones that love and support them and sticking a bunch of people that have the same issue in a home together a good idea??? But his case was finalized last April and he hasn't had a drink since 2012 when his last dui was. We really need some legal advice and guidance. Thank you for your time.
What you are saying makes little sense. You said that he stopped drinking in 2012....how can that be as he was...
When does DUI arrest show on driving record?
I was arrested last week for DUI in Los Angeles county. . I requested a hearing from dmv and thus my license is still valid. When will my arrest show on my DMV driving record? Will it not be placed on my driving record until I am convicted or has it already been documented and therefore visible to insurance companies if they pull my record?
technically arrest should be on there now but obviously no conviction. I am a 10 year veteran of the los angeles police...
I got a DUI, I wasn't pulled over, need to know what my chances of fighting case are before hiring a lawyer.?
Cop followed me for about 3mins before he cut my off to pull over the car in front of me which happened to be my aunt. As they pulled to the side I pulled over with them parked my car and was going to approach cop, but was asked to remain in my car. After they arrested my aunt they came over to my car & made me do the field test which I didnt want to do bc it was cold and I couldn't even stand still bc I was shivering. I got arrested no Miranda rights. They towed my car not my aunts. I only had 2 drinks and I wasn't drunk, or tipsy. i haven't for blood results, my paperwork says I was under alcohol and drugs. I don't do drugs. What are my chances of dropping DUI charge.? To maybe wreck less driving.?
It's hard to say without knowing more about your case (e.g. police report, the prosecutor, judge, etc.) You may have...
Drunk driver hit me while on my bike
the guy that hit me was drunk and i can't work now
Sorry to hear. What is your question?
Does the record support a finding of probable cause for DUI arrest? I am a CA lawyer.
The following is an officer's testimony in the suppression hearing: "At that time I noticed a – I detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from the vehicle, and I also observed the driver's eyes to be red and watery." Assuming all other testimonies were stricken from the record, does the above testimony alone, without more, support the finding of probable cause for DUI arrest in California?
It might depend on the judge, but I don't think a judge would be wrong in finding probable cause based those limited...
