The feds don't typically provide CIs with immunity. That is very rare. They may reduce the sentence. Typically the opportunity of becoming a CI is provided to someone who has been indicted. You will need an attorney to work out the arrangements including Queen for a Day status at any proffer meeting. Bear in mind if the feds don't like you or don't trust you, then the opportunity will not present itself. Good luck.

Typically the Fullerton courthouse will post the fine, along with the penalty and assessments in the court room. The typical fine is $390. By law it can go to $1,000, but rarely does. The penalty and assessments are very expensive. Then there's city fees. Certain cities tack on more costs for fees. So somewhere around $1,700 to $1,900 is a safe estimate.

It's probably best to request a print out from the DMV and provide it to your attorney to review. If the print out shows that your license wasn't suspended on said date, then it is likely that the charge will be dismissed. If provided to you attorney soon, maybe he can get the charges rejected so that you don't have to even appear for court. Good luck.

Speak to the public defender and if you qualify then use them. Don't do this on your own because the judge must maintain a neutral position and cannot provide you with legal advice. In addition, the prosecutor is your adversary, so they will not help you but they are quite willing to screw you on occasion. If you are attending school in LA, then I highly recommend retaining a private attorney because a private attorney can appear on your behalf without your need to attend. I wish you the best.
I started in the federal court system and was exclusively a federal criminal defense attorney for many years. The length of the indictment will depend on the number of counts and whether or not a conspiracy was involved. The acts to justify the counts will be listed in the indictment. The indictment will not contain the evidence to support itself. The evidence will be disclosed later.
The very first day in court is important and is not like the typical state case. It is important because...
Delancey Street is very well recognized by the court and I don't know any court that wouldn't accept such an offer if presented properly. Help is needed. Throwing him in prison is not going to deter a 7th conviction. Getting him to stop drinking will deter the 7th conviction. You need an experienced attorney who can make a persuasive pitch to the court. Good luck.
