He got arrested on a felony burglary charge and went to his courts and got it reduced to a mister meaner and 6 months probation he missed his last sentencing court so they put a warrant for his arrest and is now in custody again ... Will he be abl...
Depends. There is a chance he will get the same offer. There is a chance he will get more sanctions. He needs to contact his attorney.See question
What if it is a third offense? Can I get a wet reckless if I previously had two DUI (VC 23152(b)) convictions over the last two years.
It is theoretically possible. It depends on the facts of the case, including whether your priors are in order.
I would consult and retain an attorney.
Hello, recently i was with family members eating at a restaurant where i had a beer. On my way home my tire had popped . Quickly, i went to the closest residential area to change the tire and my other family member was going to drive the car home...
Everyone here is correct. You need to obtain representation because a 2nd DUI can carry heavy sanctions.
The key is to be proactive and let your attorney obtain the facts of the case ASAP. Do not wait for the court date.
I live in Oceanside, California and I am about 7 weeks pregnant. He turned 18 and i turned 16 in February.
Yes he can. I would consult with attorneys just in case. It may not happen...and it might.See question
I'm currently in the last year of a three year probation following a conviction for wet and reckless driving downgraded from a DUI. I wanted to seek an early termination of probation and then an expungement. This is to help out with seeking a job....
The courts consider a variety of factors. Helping get off probation to job seek is one solid reason. I would recommend obtaining an attorney to handle these motions for you. It is a two step process. Be advised, that if granted, an expungement DOES NOT erase the conviction but merely adds a notation that the case is now dismissed. Finally, NOTHING can remove it from your DMV driving history. Thus, it will be dismissed, but it won't go away and it could still cause you problems.See question
My boyfriend was arrested on forth dui. He was released to me and received no ticket and there was no bail. All he had was a court date. He did not show. Now there is a bench warrant for 100,000 !
The officer probably did not run a check to see your boyfriends prior charges. The District Attorney is more thorough and likely found out your boyfriend had a 4th DUI. The key now is to be proactive and contact an attorney.See question
I really don't want to lose my job. I know a misdemeanor is better than a felony, but I'm still worried.
It will no doubt not help any job search. How much it may impact your search depends on a variety of factors. Obtain free consultations from Avvo attorneys and do all that can be done for your case.See question
I have a great job which i need to keep to pay my bills i just recently got a 3rd dui and i wanted to kno what is the possibility the judge will grant me house arrest if I have a full time job
There may be options. The court will make a determination on the totality of the facts of the case. I recommend seeking free consultations and find an attorney you feel most comfortable with.See question
Last month my fiance was cited for shoplifting at her place of employment. She was a cashier and let an acquaintance walk away without paying full price for items. The alleged amount is for rougly $240, but this is disputed by her. She was bro...
Getting diversion when there is a $240 theft from a place of employment is a tall order for diversion. Custody is likely not an issue. However, all of this depends on the specific facts in your case. The key in these cases is to be proactive. If at all possible I would retain an attorney to assist and help you be proactive. Otherwise, the public defender will assist you on the court date.See question
Hello my name is Ryan, I got my 1st dui on Saturday. I was wondering if i physically have to walk into the dmv or can I just call the number on my 30 day temporary license? Also wondering why would i only have the one charge 23152 (A) and not both...
Ryan, I recommend speaking to attorneys who provide a consultation to give you more information. If possible you should retain an attorney.
You can call the DMV on the form (though I recommend getting an attorney). The officer may have only placed the "A" count charge. This does not mean the prosecutor will not charge additional charges. What the police book you on and what the prosecutor eventually files is two different things.
It is not true that even if you have an "A" count only they will dismiss. You will not know what the prosecutor decides on issuing for some time. The key is if at all possible obtain representation and be proactive in your defense.
