    The court can impose any sentence for DUI from the minimum 2 days, to six months. Most judges will consider high blood alcohol and non-injury accidents during a DUI to be aggravating factors that justify higher than the minimum sentence.

    If by "date" you mean have dinner in a restaurant, watch a movie, or other social activities that do not involve sexual or intimate contact, there is no age limit. If by "date" you mean intimate or sexual contact, Washington state's child rape laws are based on age differences between the partners and the age of the younger partner. At Age 15 for the younger partner, there is a 48 month limit on age difference for the older partner. While this may be the law, it is generally not...

    Spelling errors do not undermine the legal force of a pleading filed with the court, so long as the document can still be understood with the errors. In long, complex documents, a few errors are common, given the short time frames usually allowed for court filings. Courts usually do not think negatively of minor errors. I have never heard of a judge granting or denying a motion based on spelling, grammatical errors, or typos. Representing yourself in pro-per is possible, and while courts...

    As a lawyer, I am often asked, "Can I legally do __________?" or "Is there a law against _____________?" Sadly, these questions are rarely as simple as they sound. Lawyers give advice and opinions constantly. That's a large part of what they do for a living. In order to give an accurate and reliable opinion, an attorney needs to know a lot of facts. The laws of California consist of the State Constitution, Statutes, Rules, State Regulations, and court decisions. The complete set of these...

    Intercourse or any other sexual act with a 14 year old is a felony. for some sexual acts, there is also lifetime sex offender registration. Parental consent is irrelevant. It is also illegal, so the parents would be very unlikely to ever testify to it.

    The bike helmet law in California (vehicle code sec 21212 is an infraction and cannot result in imprisonment. This means that it is very unlikely that this is the sole reason the minor in question was remanded to the Juvenile Hall. Speak to your child's attorney to get a better understanding of the case.

    The DMV does not "change its mind" after reaching a decision, but you can request an administrative review by written letter. There are instructions on your decision letter. If you lose the administrative review, you may file a lawsuit called a "Petition for Writ of Mandamus" to challenge the ruling. Writ petitions are complex, and if you pursue this, you should hire an experienced appellate attorney. Under California law, the court awards attorneys fees to the winner in a Petition for Writ of...

    The age of consent for sexual activity in California is 18. A person more than three years older who has sexual activity with a 17 year old is committing a felony. The fact that you already have a baby, that your parents may approve or acquiesce to the relationship does not change the fact that he could be arrested and prosecuted.
