You probably do have a warrant lurking out there and you should just deal with it. Better for you to get on top of it then ignore it and have it bite you in the back side years later. It's not the end of the world. It's just DUI probation and if you did indeed do everything but the community service it takes us all of 30 minutes to find the warrant. Depending on what court your case is in it MIGHT be possible to clear the warrant without you coming to California. If you want us to look into it...
I agree with the above attorneys. What the Judge said was legally correct. There was no other answer that could have been given. If the court had elaborated more fully, then the Judge may have been reversed depending on what language he/she gave. So on that ground you would lose because it is correct.
That said, since you aren't an attorney, you may have plenty of other issues that could have occurred during the trial that an appellate attorney could find, that you would not see. One of...
Given that you are in law school, it seems to me you should do anything in your power to defend this case. .19 isn't a great number but there are all kinds of defenses that may be available to you. An attorney would need to review your file in full before rendering an informed opinion. Private counsel will give you substantial time and energy to devote to your case. Given your situation, it seems to me you should have someone giving your case 100 percent attention. Many of us offer free...
Its hard to say what kind of warrant it is based on the information you provided. Depending on what court issued the warrant, sometimes a criminal case will begin with the issuance of a warrant and a courtesy letter and yes the police will absolutely come knocking. Its a warrant. If your case already began and you did not appear then it would be a bench warrant. In either case it means you need to surrender asap. If you need assistance with this give us a call.
You have some larger problems before you get to expungement. If he has bench warrants then that means he has open cases that he would likely have to appear on to deal with. Warrants do not go away and even if he is out of state years later he can find himself in custody and shipped to California. These charges are misdemeanor so if he retains counsel and can manage to come to California to clear the warrants his attorney can then begin to work on settling the cases, or seeking dismissals.

I have handled many DUI cases in Fullerton. Just like all of Orange County, it is a tough court. Sentences are longer. Judges are more harsh. You should have counsel. If we can help you out give us a call.

Your question contains far too facts to be able to give a precise answer. A district attorney MAY be able to refile charges after a motion to suppress but that is a fact based determination based on the facts of your individual case. Yes, if there is a refiling a warrant can issue and your attorney should be standing by with a bondsman ready to bail you out and arrange bail should that occur. If you are having problems with communication with your attorney than perhaps you should consider new...
You're getting way ahead of yourself here. What happened to mounting a vigorous defense to prevent that 2nd DUI!? No you don't go straight to jail, even if you plead on day 1, something you should hardly ever do. Talk to some lawyers before talking yourself into jail.
