    It is unlikely that the DA would opt to file additional charges. Further, unless the officer had some indication that you were under the influence of narcotics, he would likely not request a drug panel, and, assuming your BAC was over .08, they would proceed based on the alcohol.

    Under those facts, it would appear the tape was not illegally obtained, and even if it was, it is probably still admissible. You should turn it over to your brother in law's attorney. They will know how to proceed. SLG Criminal Law Group 515 South Flower Street 36th Floor Los Angeles, CA 90071 213-236-3660

    When a jury is unable to come up with a unanimous verdict, the Court will usually make them go back and deliberate once or twice before finally accepting that they are "deadlocked". Once the Court has determined that a jury cannot (and will not, even with further deliberations) reach a unanimous verdict, a mistrial will be declared and the jury will be sent home. The Court will then set a future date. At this future date, the prosecutor announces whether or not they will seek to retry the...

    If you have an attorney, this question is better directed at him or her. If there has been a breakdown in your relationship with your current lawyer, then you may want to consult with others. Based on the facts provided, I would not accept the "standard first" conditions either. SLG Criminal Law Group 515 South Flower Street 36th Floor Los Angeles, CA 90071 213-236-3660

    Most attorneys offer payment plans as well as free consultations. My advice is to contact an attorney in your area and discuss with them the experience they have in handling cases similar to your friends. Finances can usually be worked out.

    It's not really possible to answer this question without a little additional information. Who is your attorney now? If it is the public defender, and your first arraignment was continued for you to seek private counsel, then the arraignment will likely go forward unless you can convince the court that you are very close to hiring an attorney. If you have the public defender now, and cannot afford a lawyer of your own, the hearing will definitely go forward that day. SLG Criminal Law...

    First and foremost, it is imperative that you stop discussing the facts of your case with anyone other than an attorney. Second, both probation and no jail time are possible, and given your age and lack of a criminal history a good attorney should be able to reach a favorable outcome. You need to contact an attorney in your area and start working on a defense as soon as possible. SLG Criminal Law Group 515 South Flower Street 36th Floor Los Angeles, CA 90071 213-236-3660

    You do have a right to a speedy trial. In Riverside county, your time waiver is good until the date set by the court, plus ten days. You should discuss with your attorney why it is you are agreeing to all of these continuances. If the DA is not ready to go, it is sometimes advisable to pull your time waiver in the hopes of keeping out damaging evidence. However, it is possible that your lawyer is requesting the continuances as he is waiting on a video, pictures, etc. that may be helpful to...

    Unfortunately, courts no longer have jurisdiction over your license. Several years ago, the courts were becoming too crowded with every person convicted of a DUI adding themselves onto the court's calendar in order to seek a restricted license. As such, you should contact the Mandatory Actions Unit of the DMV and see if they can help you.
