    You should have a lawyer help you make a motion for early termination of probation and for an expungement. There is no guarantee that a judge will grant your requests if only 1 year 5 months has passed, and DA might object. I have expunged DUIs (deuces), and just had one expunged very early but to get it granted you have to show that it is in the interests of justice, which is harder than most other offenses. Feel free to call me if you want to discuss.

    The District Attorney's Office can prosecute regardless of whether the victim in a domestic violence case wants to press charges or not. Some district attorney offices have a "no drop" policy for domestic violence cases which is intended to protect domestic violence victims who may be pressured to drop the charges by the abuser. You can appear in court on the first court date and try to talk to the DA about the case. Whatever you do, do not violate or let him violate any protective order....

    You definitely need a lawyer to help you in this situation. A petty theft is a crime of moral turpitude (dishonesty) with serious immigration consequences. That does not mean that you are out of luck. First, your attorney may be able to resolve the case with the merchant and have the charges dropped. Your attorney may also be able to negotiate a deal for diversion and a dismissal. Also, you may be eligible for the ONE petty theft exception to the immigration consequences of the offense....

    There are two separate things going on here, the criminal case against the other person and a potential civil case you may have against him/her. In order to assess what kind of recovery you may get there are a number of things an attorney evaluating the case would need to know. You don't mention when the accident happened or whether the person has been convicted of DUI or whether the criminal case is still pending. If the criminal case is still pending you can speak to the District Attorney...

    The suspension starts 30 days after you were cited or arrested for DUI. Given that your DUI happened in November your license is already suspended and you cannot request a hearing because you are too late. Also, if you are convicted in court your license will be suspended for an additional period of time. If you want to know the status of your license call the DMV's Mandatory Actions Unit in Sacramento. They deal with license suspensions resulting from DUIs.

    An attorney may be able to help you get the records you want. Equally important, an attorney can also look at what happened and see if you have a case against the gym. You should contact an attorney and ask for a free consultation. If you have any questions I would be more than happy to talk to you.

    Yes, it is legal. I argued a case in the Appellate Division of the Superior Court of Los Angeles on this same issue (random license plate checks on vehicles parked in a store parking lot) when I was with the DA's Office and the court held that it was constitutional. A lower court judge had ruled it was a search but on appeal the Appellate Division reversed. In the case the argument of the defense was that the check was "random" and arbitrary and that therefore there must be some violation,...

    There is no telling what the judge will do. Obviously you are going to have to ask for another extension because it's not complete. Maybe the judge will let you convert the remaining community service back into a fine so you can pay that amount and be done. $390 plus penalty assessments comes out to around $2,000 so if you were to get credit for more than half because of the hours you conmpleted that may drop it down below $1,000. If you have the money you may want to offer to pay the converted...

    If you can hire an attorney to represent you I strongly recommend that you do so. If not, then you will be appointed a public defender by the court. It is difficult to assess whether you will ultimately serve jail time without seeing the police report, your entire criminal history, and speaking to the District Attorney's Office about your case. Even though the amount of the items is very small you have a real problem on your hands because you are already on probation for doing the same...
