    It will depend on the county that you are in. A wet is a reduced charge that is negotiated with the DA and usually ranges from 1 year to 3 years. If you got 9 months consider yourself lucky. Robert Driessen

    First hire an attorney. Then that attorney will get all the information of potential witnesses and be able to discuss the matter with the DA. Since charges have been filed this will not go away on its own. Robert Driessen

    First in California there is no such thing as a DWI; everything is a DUI but understand you can be under the influence of more than just alcohol. There are several cases on point that say you do not have Miranda rights for a road side investigation. Almost 99% of all DUI investigations take place prior to the individual being arrested and there is no requirement that you be informed of your Miranda rights. Once you are actually arrested this changes but by that point they typically never ask...

    This really is not a criminal defense question. However that being said NO their property is still their property. You do not have to have all your worldly possessions within arms length when you die. I find it sad that the poor parents are not even cold in the grave and their dirt bag kids are fighting over the remains. Robert Driessen

    Hire an attorney. You only have 10 days to contact the DMV to schedule a hearing to preserve your driver’s license. Most DUI cases are not for bad driving but something silly like a tail light being out. The good news is your BAC is at the legal limit and there will be several defenses your attorney can raise.

    You are going to be requesting the services of the public defender and this is an issue that you need to address with them. The issue you will run into is the PD does not represent you in the DMV action and the DMV based on the police report will suspend you license for a year, unless you hire a competent attorney to fight for you.
