Will I need an SR-22 if my statute of limitations has been exceeded to get my license back in the state of California?
I was charged with a misdemeanor DUI (not sure what my BAC was) as a minor, 3 days before my 18th birthday. It has been approximately a year and my case hasn't been filed. A year passed 8 days ago. Will I need an SR-22 from my insurance company? Thanks
Even though there hasn't been a case filed in court you still have the DMV to contend with. I would need more...
So upon sentencing of my 3rd DUI in VNCH, my sentencing required 137 days jail ( i did 2 days) 104 AA classes and 257$ fine.
I have completed all. My attorney stated that since i already completed 18 months of Alcohol education on my prior, the was no req. for it on this case, nor was it stated on my sentencing sheet. I just called DMV, MAU and the lady, stated my license is revoked for 3 years which i know, when i asked what can i do to get it reinstated, she said 12 months of an 18 month Alcohol class, when i said my terms and attorney stated i didn't need to, She says,'Either do it or DON'T" (someone didn't get laid i guess) and hung up. I called my Alcohol class and they are sending me my completion on the second DUI showing i finished my 18 months. What are my options at this point? Any help would be greatly appreciated, the attorneys on this board are so knowledgeable. Thank you and GOD BLESS.
The DMV and the court are two separate things. In order to get a license back, the DMV can require you to do things...
Received a "Los Angeles County Jail booking and property record" pink sheet that shows an arraign date of 7/14/14. Attend?
This was a sheet that was filled out and given after being booked for suspicion of DUI. This pink piece of paper outlines personal belongings at time of booking. It shows a date 7/14/14 8:30 AM at a court for arraign date. At the time of release from an overnight stay at Los Angeles County Jail, a yellow DUI ticket was issued with a court appearance date in October. There is confusion to know if it is still a requirement to go to the date specified on the pink sheet which shows 7/14/14, or if its just mandatory to go to the date specified on the yellow ticket. If anyone can please help and write about what it means for this arraign date? Thank You!
When were you arrested. The October date seems right if you were released. Ask your attorney.
I have been charged with a DUI in Van Nuys and refused all the tests. I was arrested, booked, bail was set at 15k.
After spending the night in jail, I was released without having to post bail. I am aware of the DMV proceedings. My question pertains to the court proceedings. After about 3 weeks of my arrest, my attorney (also, a close friend with no experience, representing me for free) made the first appearance for me before the court after which she informed me that the judge ordered AA meetings 2 times a week for the DURATION of my case. How often is this seen? Is the Van Nuys court more strict on refusals? Any answers are very much appreciated.
All courts tried to order AA for years but his was found to be unconstitutional because they are religiously based....
I am in the three month program and just got expelled for missing 21 days. However, there was a holiday. I only missed twice and that is allowed. I don't know what to do now. Can the school reinstate me or do I need to go to court? My license was not affected by my DUI, but the courts punishment was 3 month DUI class and 3 years informal probation.
You should call the court that sentenced you. The Judge will want to see you and you will need to give a good response....
I am self surrendering july 11 to lynwood on a 2nd dui and max sentence is 50 days. What is the crowding like now?
Its a 2nd dui, 2 days are mandatory, but my attorney converted all fines and community service, bringing it to 50 days. He says he is 99% positive ill be in on a fri and do a night or 2. If i go in thur is that better? Ive heard you dont get cut loose until a monday. He says lynwood is super overcrowded but a cop friend says it is not. I really need to get a better idea of the ACTUAL TIME i might be in there. I am petite and have some health pro lems, including a recently fractured back. Ive heard serving in medical takes longer, and its better to white knuckle it and hope to get cut loose.
No one can tell you for sure how long you will do. You should also have a day or 2 of credits off the 50 days. Lynnwood...
CA license still suspended after CA set-aside the conviction. DUI occurred and was completed in PA where I resided at the time.
I became a resident of CA with a valid CA license in 2007. I was charged with a DUI in CA in 2009. I paid ALL fees, attended classes & completed all requirements. In 2012 the CA DMV suspended my license for a 2004 conviction that occurred in my home state of PA where I was a resident at the time. Everything relating to the PA violation was fulfilled in PA. The CA DMV received ALL records relating to this violation. In July of 2013 the CA DMV sent a "set-aside" letter for the aforementioned violation in PA in 2004. Now, it is June of 2014 and my license is still showing as suspended and they will not lift the suspension until an 18-month program has been completed. I have the set-aside letter from the CA DMV that they sent me! Please provide direction for me, how can I resolve this?
you need to consult with a qualified dui DMV lawyer go over your driving record see what suspension codes are on there...
