    Thank you for your answer and the opportunity to help. It is often difficult to look at all aspects of a case, especially factual or legal defenses, from a sentence or two through the internet. However, it does appear that you have particular issues that could be fruitful in your case. There is a risk of rejecting an offer that dismisses the DUI, but there is a chance that at trial, you could get a not guilty if your defenses are compelling enough, or if the prosecutor fails to prove the...

    Thanks for your question, and I am sorry to hear about your DUI arrest. San Diego courts do allow a no contest plea, and also allow you to do out of county classes, including in Los Angeles. I would recommend you take advantage of a free consultation with someone that handles DUI cases, so you know how to minimize the impact on you of fees, fines, and of your conviction long term, if possible. If you write a letter to the court in San Diego before your arraignment, it is possible, but...

    Thank you for your question through Avvo, and the opportunity to assist you. The court can tell you for sure, but it is likely that a warrant would be issued anytime you have missed a court appearance. One exception would be if you have an attorney, where the attorney would be in most cases able to make court appearances, on your behalf, as your agent, as allowed under the law. (Penal Code section 977(a)). Another exception would be if the judge decided to issue, and then hold a warrant,...

    Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear about your arrest. The instructions for training police officers in field sobriety testing mention that they are standardized given average physical condition, and that they could be considered invalid if you have any injuries or sub standard physiology. Fatigue is well known to mimic intoxication and impairment, but doesn't prove either. You should meet with an attorney in Arizona, as your case is there, to ascertain the strength of...

    Thanks for your posting. The answer to your question is that there certainly may be a way out of it. A DUI can often be reduced to another charge, or if a legal defense, or a factual defense exists, be dismissed through motion or acquittal at trial. You can't get that unless you have someone look carefully over the case and do all they can after investigating and aggressively doing everything necessary to protect you and your career and your future, including your job. You didn't...

    You have asked a great question, and those are valid questions. Asking the direct questions you want answers to is not, in any way, silly. Choose wisely when it comes to an attorney, and make sure you are getting value for your hard earned money. All the best to you.

    Thanks for your question and the opportunity to advise you and your uncle. This would be a good opportunity to have a lawyer help you and him, as an attorney can go to court for him, without him being there. Having said that, it is unlikely that just going to court would trigger a deportation. The charges in court, if convicted, might, however. I hope this helps, but best of luck to you, and please ask if you have any other questions.

    As others have noted, yes, the law allows, if a warrant is obtained, or if probable cause showing truly exigent circumstances exist, you can have a forced blood draw, and still be charged with a refusal. There are situations where that may not be legal, although it sounds in your case as though they did not actually obtain blood by force. Please post if you have any further questions. Thank you again and all the best. Robert Miller

    Thank you for your answer and the opportunity to help. If your husband did not do any part of his sentence, then he is technically in violation of his probation. As you mentioned, there is also a warrant for his arrest. There are ways to settle this, or for your husband not to do jail, or even to face a judge. The first thing to do is to clear up the warrant, which would make the case an active case again. From there, the case could be settled with the court, including perhaps...

    I'm sorry to hear about your arrest. In Orange County, currently, the OC Crime Lab tests for the existence of four categories of drugs, and amphetamines, which are active ingredients in Adderall, should come back in the test. Of course, much of this depends on the dose, timing, and how your particular physiology aggregates and eliminates the drug (which in turn depends on tolerance and other factors). If the police officer asked for a particular drug to be screened for, it will be. If...
