My question is, can I get this charge reduced to a 'Wet Wreckless' or lower charge? I was sitting in my car, drinking, in a store parking lot when approached by a police officer.
If you were not driving and solely drinking in your car, you may have an excellent defense with the Court and with DMV. You really should meet with an attorney to get a thorough analysis of the specific facts surrounding your case. Most attorneys offer free consultations. It would be well worth your while to meet with one.See question
I am a Mexican Citizen with no license I was only arrested for 2 hours and then let go. I have a court date next month. What possible consequences am I facing? Am I facing jail time? I know I have to pay penalties
It would be well worth your while to speak with an attorney who will go through the DUI "system" with you -- what happens from arrest through disposition and/or trial; the two separate DMV suspensions (APS and MAU) and how they can try to run these penalties concurrent; and finally, the expected court results associated with your particular case. Most attorneys on Avvo.com will offer free consultations. Best of luck to you.See question

A 422 does not look good on your record. I suggest you contact a local attorney immediately to discuss your options.

It would be well worth your time to contact one. Best of luck to you.See question

Mr. Nagano offers some great perspective for you and your family. As far as the juvenile court requirements, if your daughter is now 18, you are not required to be in court with her. Being there with her, however, is your decision and is always good for the court to see.See question

The police in Orange County usually tape the admonishment they are required to give in order for the refusal to be upheld. It would be worth it to order the tapes to see. It is also very important to get the refusal dismissed in your criminal case to avoid jail time. I know I am repeating the other attorneys, but it is well worth your time to contact an attorney just to talk it through. Most attorneys here on Avvo offer free consultations.

Keep in mind -- there is a difference between civil and criminal actions. Civilly, you may sue the culprit and attempt to receive a judgment. Criminally, as a victim, you have constitutional Marsy's Law rights pursuant to Article I, section 28(b) including the right to restitution pursuant to Penal Code section 1202.4. It would be well worth your time to take a look at these sections and consult a lawyer in your area. Best of luck to you.See question

Overall, I would agree with the answers above -- but NOT in Orange County. Since the passage of Prop 47, the Orange County DA's Office offers DEJ or PC 1000. They are not the same. PC 1000 clears your record as if it never occurred, while DEJ just dismisses your case, but doesn't give you the added benefit if PC 1000. PC 1000 is a longer program, but well worth the rewards if you don't fall out. Hope this helps!See question
