    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. Brian Michaels Southern California DUI Lawyer www.socalcrimdefense.com 3109919179

    Of course you can fight your DUI. That is what you hire a lawyer to do. It would be impossible to say what your actual defenses would be without going over your reports, but any DUI case can be fought. Consult an attorney in your area. We offer a free first consult.

  4. Can a warrant be issued for my arrest if the DA refiles after we won the motion to suppress?

    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.

    There is just no way to accurately answer this without a full file review. Id want to look at the complaint and Discovery as well as your prior criminal history which does factor into what could happen to you if you go to trial and do not prevail. I would highly recommend settling on an attorney before your Prelim. This is an important phase of the litigation and if there is an offer on the table, it may go away after your Prelim and you want counsel to have as much time to work out a...

    Absolutely critical. You will have no way of knowing whether you have a beatable case. My office is very aggressive and reasonable in taking cases that have a defense to trial. A DUI stays with you for 10 years. If you miss an opportunity to beat it or reduce it, if the $ is the issue consider the cost of 10 years of insurance premiums doubled. Also the PD can do nothing for you on the DMV hearing. You do that on your own, you lose. Call around. We give a free consult. You might be...

    Since she will be coming back on an international flight, the answer is very possibly yes. If she can hire counsel to try to get the warrant recalled before she comes back you should definitely give it a try. A judge does not have to recall the warrant without her being present, but with some creative lawyering, especially a family emergency in a foreign country, we might be able to get it recalled before she comes back. We have gotten warrants recalled without the defendant being present all...
