    It can be, but every case is different. Most often there are offers at every stage of the litigation. The issue is whether it is a good offer based on the facts of your case. If the offer is to send you to State Prison is that a good offer? If you have a lawyer ask your lawyer if the offer is a good one. If you need a lawyer many of us here offer free consults.

    Because it's San Bernardino. It's likely charges have not been filed and law enforcement will most always arrest someone on a higher charge to make the bail higher. Its fairly common. He may very well ultimately be charged with just Petty Theft but it's a wait and see game. The D.A makes that call. You *diot son might be well served to get counsel before charges are filed to see if a settlement can be reached. Many of us on AVVO offer free consults. Call around.

    There is no set answer to this question. It is within the discretion of the individual Judge. 30 days is typically not too long for a Judge to give you to retain counsel.

    Well for starters I am sorry this happened to you. Obviously you should not speak to the police at all for any reason. Your rights need only be read once you are formally under arrest and police ask investigative questions. From what you described that did not happen. An attorney will need more facts to determine what if any defenses you may have to this case. They are often defensible cases depending on the conduct and the words that are used. If you can obtain private counsel you would be...

    Well what will probably show up is amphetamine since Adderral is amphetamine and the metabolites for it are similar to Meth.

    A very very hard road. Ventura is not the place to get a DUI. The offers on 3rd DUIs exceed the standard DUI sentencing, sometimes by quite a bit. I am quite familiar with Ventura DA's and they are relentless. You need to find yourself the best possible trial attorney because you are in for a fight you are going to need to win. Your liberty is seriously at stake. Many of us offer a free consult. Including my firm. Brian Michaels Southern California DUI Attorney www.exlaproseuctor.com...

    You definitely identify some facts that would be real relevant to a suppression motion. I would be willing to bet there are more facts you missed. Many of us offer a free consult including my firm. Brian Michaels Los Angeles Defense Attorney www.exlaprosecutor.com 310-991-9179

    If you were nearly a .10 at the time of arrest, I would expect there to be a prosecution. Your blood test results have too many variables to guess at what the number might be but assume it will be over a .08. Even if it is a close call you will probably be prosecuted. I worked the Van Nuys court for many years and they take a hard line even on close calls. Many of us offer a free consult including our firm.
