Four years ago I recieved a DUI (23152 a and b) I never reinstated my license nor put an ignition lock in, mainly because I rarely need to drive. I did do an Alcoholics Anonymous program. A few days ago I was pulled over for talking on...
That's true there are mandatory minimums on 14601 charges. There may be a way to negotiate away the charge to something lesser by showing the DA and/or the court that you remedied whatever issues there were that caused the suspension. You would be well advised to walk into court with an attorney. If you need additional assistance many of us on AVVO offer free consults.See question

I recently became aware that a case from 2011 that was dismissed in court, shows on my record as a felony conviction. How do I go about getting it removed.
We would need additional facts to be able to steer you in the right direction. If a case was dismissed you would not have a record of conviction. You MAY have a record of arrest. If those are the correct facts you would be eligible to have your arrest record sealed and destroyed depending on the facts. Recommend you call a local attorney.

was never arrested but convicted of a misdemeanor in 2014. i completed 160 hrs community service, and currently on probation for 3 yrs. is it possible to have this charge expunged from my record....if so, do i need to wait a certain period of ti...
Yes you can handle it now if you completed everything you owe to the court , money, community service, etc. You would have to file a motion of early termination of probation together with a motion to dismiss. If you have no other open cases or warrants, you may be able to get the expungement now. If you need additional assistance many of us on AVVO offer free consults.See question
I have 2 prior dui's and suspended license tickets. I am aosta done with an 8 year old 18 month program to be able to get my license but the warrant will prevent me from gettin the license.
You have little choice but to clear the warrant. You would be well advised to do so with an attorney who will go with you to court to make sure that you can get O.R. Then you will need to deal with underlying issued that caused the warrant. If it is an open case you will need an attorney to handle it.

Is there any way I can search or find out if my boyfriend is being charge as an adult or juvenile ?
You can call the DA's office and find out if they have a case on him. You would probably want an attorney to help you since you probably would not know where to call or what to ask.See question
I plead No Contest to a criminal misdemeanor and was sentenced to 30 days community service and 2 years probation. I completed the community service (on time) and am almost done with my probation (without further incident). After completion of my ...
There are two issues here. Your arrest record and record of conviction. Your "rap" sheet typically involves your arrest record. You would have had to have charges dismissed or not filed to get the arrest off your record. You can technically apply to have your conviction dismissed pursuant to 1203.4 now with a motion for early termination of probation. Those are your options.

I was mailed a court date for the charge of Assault and Battery from the DA office. When I go to court in June will I get arrested? What are my chances of getting O.R. I have a criminal record 2005 convicted of criminal mischief. 2010 convicted o...
Id have to look at the citation to give you a better answer. If the DA filed misdemeanor charges you could face up to a year in Jail if only one count was charged. So yes, in theory you are of course looking at jail. If you were given a notice to appear and not a warrant, then your chances of staying out are decent. However you would not be wise walking into court unrepresented and without a bond agent on call. If the DA does not like your record they can ask for bail and a court can grant it. If you are not prepared to argue it, and get out if need be, yes you could go in. If you need more assistance many of us offer free consults.See question
I think he's being chared with intent to sell and can he fight this case
As the other lawyers pointed out your friend is facing a bunch of time. On someone with an extensive record it is not uncommon for the DA to file the higher sales charge in order to leverage someone for an extensive jail term. Your friend needs a lawyer now.See question
I’m in need of legal services, but don’t really have much money to spend. I was wondering if I could offer a professional artificial grass or putting green installation in exchange for legal services. It involves a criminal defense case that has b...
If you are being held to answer then you are going to trial. If you cannot afford a private defense then the public defender is your best option. We are not allowed to do business here but if you call around people do offer reasonable payments plans as an option including our firm.See question
