    Greg’s Answer

    There is no magic formula on this. You should enroll in and attend 10 or more alcoholic anonymous courses prior to your arraignment - and bring proof of this to give your attorney. On these types of cases, where diversion may be possible (or a reduction to disturbing the peace as an infraction), you really want to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney who regularly appears in the courthouse at issue. I hope this helps you.

    According to what you described, the other driver is at fault for failure to yield to you. A turning party to cross traffic must yield under Vehicle Code section 21800 - 21803. I hope this helps you

  • Should I have gotten charged with 22356(a) instead of the 22348(b)?

    I got a speeding ticket going exactly 100mph in a 70 zone on the 10 east, but got charged with 22348(b) exceeding 100mph. According to that law it says that I must be going greater than 100mph.

    Greg’s Answer

    You actually have not been charged with anything yet. Your ticket is just what you were cited for. The district attorney will do the charging later. He or she may notice this error and fix it. Best of luck to you.

    Use Google and type in "Traffic Ticket Attorney Redding." See which attorneys Google finds in response. Call a few to see which one has the most experience in the courthouse for your ticket and which attorney seems to be competent to handle your ticket. Then hire the one you feel most comfortable with. Best of luck to you.

    i was pulled over and given a ticket a ca. vehicle code #22450 what exactly does his mean.

    It means you ran a stop sign. Apparently, you did not stop at the intersection or did so improperly, according to the police officer.

    Go to the courthouse where the ticket directed you to report. Then go to the criminal clerk's office and ask to pay off the rest of the ticket so you can avoid the payment plan. Best of luck to you.

  • Can you kindly explain what this means? why does it show FURTHER INVESTIGATION?

    Arrested but charges were not filed by DA. I was assured by the DA that I was cleared of all wrong doing I ordered a record review from DOJ california and it shows: DISPO: PROS REL-DET ONLY-FURTHER INVESTIGATION

    Greg’s Answer

    Why it shows this is really only an answer the prosecution or police can answer. There is apparently some witness or some evidence that is causing the police or the DA's office to investigate further. You may be aware of who that witness is or what the evidence is that they now are considering. Best of luck to you.

    Greg’s Answer

    You can try, but I would not. I think the response you are going to get is that your payment of the fine bars this.

  • Can you be violated while on a 5150 hold..

    On a 5150 hold Probation Officer told boyfriend either I turn myself in or he will issue warrant

    Greg’s Answer

    Yes, if I understand your question as worded. Being on a 5150 hold does not create some type of immunity or exemption from complying with the terms of probation.
