    Mohammad’s Answer

    You're wondering if the police will come back after the fact and arrest you. The answer is: "maybe." They may try and create a report and then ask you to answer questions wherein you will likely provide them with information for them to arrest you. The biggest take away here is that if you are contacted by the police, you will not want to speak to them without an attorney. Good luck.

  • I got a fix it ticket for no registration and no insurance. I took care of it -paid all registration fees and insurance.

    I got a fix it ticket for no registration and no insurance. I took care of it -paid all registration fees and insurance even though my former roommate was the registered owner. I have to go to court on Wednesday to see the judge but i have no pape...

    Mohammad’s Answer

    You can get a copy of the proof that the registration was paid from the DMV, but you will not enjoy waiting in line for it. Since you're not the registered owner, however, you may have some difficulty obtaining that information. If you have proof of insurance for yourself during the period when you received the ticket, take that in with you and tell the judge your story. Ask the judge for an "indicated sentence" - that means that you're asking the judge what the fines will be if you plead guilty. If it's not reasonable, plead not guilty. If you still can't get the documents ready by the time your trial date rolls around, you still have a shot at getting the tickets dismissed if the county fails to prosecute the charges.

    The worst case scenario is that the judge finds you guilty and you will have to pay the fine. There are no "extra" penalties for exercising your right to go to trial.

  • Traffic Accident

    Hi, How long does a point stay on DMV record when traffic accident occurs. Also how many percent does the insurance quote rises. It is the first accident on the policy. It was my fault. Thank you, Arutyun Adzhemyan

    Mohammad’s Answer

    What you are asking is how long before the accident will adversely affect your insurance premiums and how much will your premium increase because of the accident where you were deemed to be at-fault. While both questions are dependent on your insurance carrier, most insurance companies typically go back about three (3) years and the increase in premiums differs from company to company.

    I have probation 3 years for my first DUI the court reduced to wet reckless I was 0.09 ...do I have any option to take it off because I can't apply for citizen if I have probation. Thank you please any advice will be appreciated!!

    Mohammad’s Answer

    If you haven't violated any terms of your probation, it's possible to submit a motion to terminate probation early. If you had a lawyer for the underlying DUI, they can draft a motion for you. If not, you can seek out a lawyer to file the motion for you. Good luck!

  • Charged with Hit and Run and marijuana DUI.

    I drove back to a bar where my ex was at because it was my birthday, we were hanging out that night but she ditched me for the bouncer and I wanted to talk to her. I sped back and lost control, ended up hitting a tree. Went to bar parking lot acro...

    Mohammad’s Answer

    It could be possible to reduce the charges, but not to speeding. To reduce the charges requires a lot of work at the preliminary hearings; you will not get the charges reduced simply based on a narrative events - no matter sad or unlucky. A great defense team is your best option because of how technical these cases are. If you can't afford to retain an attorney, you have the right to court-appointed counsel. Either way, don't go at this alone because you will assuredly be convicted of all charges and will have a significant criminal record that will impact numerous areas of your life for at least a decade. Call around for consultations. Good luck!

  • What are the typical consequences for a first time DUI if the person wasn't arrested?

    She blew a .16 , has no history of arrests or warrants.

    Mohammad’s Answer

    Typical consequences for a first time DUI conviction include, but are not limited to:

    1.) Court fine plus penalty assessments
    2.) Jail time
    3.) Interlock ignition device
    4.) DNA sample
    5.) License suspension
    6.) Alcohol program; &
    7.) Probation

    Moreover, because the BAC result was greater than 0.15, CA law permits the district attorney to add a "DUI Enhancement" charge.

  • I was arrested for a first time DUI with a .08 (1st time) and .07 BAC (2nd time) breath test results at the station

    I was arrested for a first time DUI with a .08 (1st time) and .07 BAC (2nd time) breath test results at the station, but the officer still took and license and gave me a pink slip. Which one of the two tests will they count?

    Mohammad’s Answer

    What you call the "1st time" breath test is a preliminary alcohol screening ("PAS") and although it's unofficial, it may possibly weigh in the prosecution decision. Technically, your BAC was recorded at .07 at the station house. Remember that you have to deal with the court system and the DMV separately so go ahead and request your DMV hearing unless you don't mind if your license is automatically suspended 10-days after your arrest.

  • BAC 0.16 .. is it an aggravated DUI ? can I still make a deal with the DA

    i've been arrested for DUI and i have a BAC of 0.16 .. can i still fight it .. or lower the sentences.. thank you

    Mohammad’s Answer

    I agree with Attorney Babakhan. You're looking at "enhancements," but not an "aggravation." To answer your questions: maybe; it's possible, but it depends on the facts and your driving and criminal history. Your worst bet is to go in and negotiate with the DA directly; their job is to prosecute you. You need an attorney - this is a criminal matter and this criminal conviction will remain on your record. Hire an attorney. If you can't afford to hire an attorney, request a public defender. Don't forget that you also have to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest or your license will be automatically suspended. There's a lot of issues you need to navigate through and that's why you should not attempt to represent yourself.
