I was arrested with a friend a number of years back for being intoxicated in public while on holiday in California. My friend recently entered the US through Nevada but was brought aside to ask him questions relating to his arrest even though it h...
No you do NOT get an automatic expungement. This is something you would have had to file yourself at the end of probation or have had an attorney file for you. Unless you do so, you would have to report the conviction until the proper paperwork is filed with the court. If you have not done it yet, suggest you hire counsel to do it for you in California. Many of us do free consults. Call around if you need more information.See question
Live in California. My case is a bit different. I have a prescription for temazepam, which I take by putting into a water bottle and labeling X on it. My friend drank this water bottle, she was unaware of its content, and got sick. I took care...
Sure it is possible. Since the investigation part of it is over, it is important that your friend obtain counsel asap. Her DMV hearing request must be filed withing 10 days of the offense. If she did not truly know she was taking a controlled substance and you are willing to say that in court, she has a very good defense. Your friend would be well served speaking with counsel asap. Many of us here on AVVO give free consults. Have her call some lawyers that have been doing this a long time. OC is a tough place on DUI's.See question
If convicted of a non-violent, consensual sex crime, with a minor is it possible or likely to receive house arrest specifically for the Los Angeles county?
Every case is fact specific. In general house arrest is POSSIBLE, but often times hard to obtain as many judges are opposed to it. Many factors go into a negotiated house arrest deal including severity of offense, criminal history, etc. It will take a skilled and experienced lawyer to do this regardless of the charge. You would be well served consulting with local lawyers to get a more detailed analysis. Many of us will do this on the house.See question
My first dui, im 19 and my alchohal level was .13%. I was arrested in west covina ca, and ended up in LA county jail. They released me 12 hrs later.
All DUI defendants in LA County who are convicted of DUI must have the interlock installed. If you obtain a lesser charge than DUI you can avoid this condition which will take some good lawyering. Covina is a tough courthouse. Suggest you hire counsel. Many of us on AVVO offer free consults, could not hurt to make some calls for opinions.See question

MY BOYFRIEND HAS 2 CHARGES PC 29800(A)(1) AND HS11370.1(A) AND I WANT TO KNOW IF THOSE CAN BE REDUCED TO A MISDEMEANOR WHEN HE GOES TO COURT ON 11/30/15. HE ONLY HAS A DUI CHARGE LAST YEAR WHICH HE WAS CONVICTED OF AND DID HIS TIME FOR BUT WAS PUT...
Your boyfriend should be thinking of getting counsel. The first charge is a straight felony; felon in possession of a weapon. These have an easy burden of proof for the DA prosecuting these cases and on their face is not a reduceable charge. DA's also tend to like to give time for these kinds of offenses. The drug charge by itself is manageable. To get out of the Felony you best do some good negotiating or have some decent trial facts. Id suggest your BF contact private counsel. Many of us offer free consults and sometimes, payment plans.See question
Some friends and i will be traveling from Lax to Vegas. One of them has warrant. He already purchased the flight ticket. Didnt think of it before hand. Will he be able to travel? Does tsa or anybody run for warrants at airport?
Very very unlikely. You are not showing passports and not going through immigration since it is a domestic flight. If you were flying internationally your pal would definitely NOT be coming in. That said, any time this guy gets is a car he is at risk. As the other attorneys said, your friend would be wise to handle the warrant before it catches up to him. Many times they can be handled with much less of an issue you might fear.See question
There is no mandatory minimum jail time for that charge and the evaluation of the case is fact specific. I would suggest getting a more detailed analysis then you can get on here. Many of us do free consults. Call around.See question
