    It will really depend on your case. AA classes pre-arraignment can help in certain situation and certainly can't hurt you. This may be a different analysis if you have priors, in which case i would say AA would definitely help and some judges make AA attendance a condition of your release on bond. However, AA classes themselves won't help you get a lesser sentence. What will help is for you to get a good attorney in So. California (not sure where your case is) and fight the case by...

    You should expect the fines to be about $1,900, which is $390, plus penalty assessment (200%) and other court fees and fines. Also, you'll have to pay for the DUI class and your insurance will rise. All costs to think about. There are also some DMV fees. Best to try to beat or lessen the case in some way, consult with a qualified defense attorney in the LA or OC area, most, including me, offer free consultation.

    This is a fact-intensive a complex question, but generally, an unspecific defense of "lingering effects" isn't going to vitiate an otherwise valid waiver. Best to get an attorney to evaluate all your defenses.

    Prosecutors rarely grant "transactional" immunity, or the type of immunity that completely permits you to avoid prosecutor or punishment. Typically, in LA the federal prosecutors require you to plea to some crime and let you work down the sentence. IF you are suspected of or charged with a crime, you need an attorney fast, before you start down a bad path with prosecutors you shouldn't trust.

    Awkward. However you should tell your lawyer everything you think is significant and let your lawyer figure that out. I'm skeptical too . . .bizarre.

    A wet is a good offer for a second offense, normally. I think you need to sit down with your lawyer and try to figure out the consequences if you went to trial and were convicted. I mean the bottom line is you are getting a 2nd DUI and your license is going to be suspended for a year (restricted available with IID) If you have the funds to fight, why not take it to trial? How much worse can you do at trial? So you get the full DUI instead of the wet. So what-- you probably have to take the...

    Get a lawyer immediately. If you are charged with residential burglary, that is a felony and a STRIKE offense. If you have a prior, you are looking at being sentenced as a second striker, which means no probation and double the prison term. You can certainly be convicted of residential burglary. Of course, the DA will need to have the proof that you committed the crime. Your prior certainly doesn't help you--particularly in a DA's decision to charge you. Best to beg and borrow to gather...

    Obviously putting it in a gun safe is a reasonable choice. If you're asking this question, maybe you shouldn't have a firearm. Considering bringing it to the police station and forfeiting it.

    You can certainly get found in violation for any of those things. Regarding the fines, you normally aren't in violation if you don't have the ability to pay, but rather you have the money and willfully fail to pay. OR you missed the deadline so the court doesn't know either way. The court usually will tell you to pay on time or come to court before the fines are due to get an extension. Same thing with the DUI class enrollment. Now, to enroll, you may need permission from the court, which...

    He is probably looking at 12 yrs. 2 for robbery + 10 for the gun. That's the low end. He needs counsel ASAP. Find one soon.
