If I got convicted for my third DUI in Riverside but im currently in LA, can I pick up the scram here? I have court tomorrow. Also whats the likely sentence if I dont get it? I did 5 months 1/2 time already. Thank you
SCRAM providers are located throughout CA. You really need to consult with an experienced DUI Attorney in Riverside...
No prior criminal record. Currently I'm represented by the public defender. My two attorneys say they don't believe the DA knows about the other case (they both think I have no crim. record with no pending cases). In essence I'm being offered two different first time DUI offenses. Is this right? If I plead in one, will I immediately have a DUI and then when pleading on the second be pleading to a "second time DUI". My attorneys appear not to know the answer to this question. Thank you.
This kind of thing can happen. Generally it happens when the second DUI is on top of the first and both DUI's are in...
I received a DUI on June 30, 2014. Court date was November 6, 2014. I have not received any papers from the Courts to date. Is this common? Has anyone seen or experience a client in my situation and finally did receive court papers? Thank you.
Yes. This is a lot more common than you think. I assume you went to your court date and they told you there was no...
I got a wet wreck less my first charge almost three years ago. I ended up crashing my car into a tree with passengers. I am being tried with five years prison time. Is this really going to happen? I have a current lawyer but I feel like he isn't doing an amazing job on trying to keep me out of prison because of my mothers need of a person at home 24/7. Help? Please.
If you do not feel like your current attorney is doing everything possible to help you, ask to speak to him face to...
DUI arrest date: 30 June 2014. Court date: 6 November 2014. City of arrest and court: Glendale, CA When I appeared on the assigned court date, I was informed papers were not filed and I will receive mail notification for new court date. Have not received any notification thus far. Just curious what is going on as I don't have any notification from either DMV or Court. Just concerned what to do now.
The DMV suspension or revocation is an immediate administrative action taken against your driving privilege only. This...
For the record I was COMPLETELY sober and am 18. I was at the skate park when officers blocked the exits to the skate park and gave everyone tickets for being publicly intoxicated. I told them I had not been drinking and requested a test, they refused to give me one and still gave me a ticket.
Of course you can sue. Anyone can sue anyone for anything. The important question to ask is, "would I be able to win?"...
I never received any notice of an arraignment even though i called the Courthouse a million times. I called today and found out that they have issued a warrant for my arrest. The clerk told me that I need to come in to have the warrant recalled. How do I do that at the Airport Courthouse? Is there a walk-in or ex parte type calendar? And if so, where do I go to sign up for the calendar? I don't know what department I'm in so do I have to go to the main clerk or is there a special place for the walk-in calendar? Thanks!
Get an attorney. Seriously. DUI's are incredibly expensive in money, and the hurdles and hoops you are going to have...
