    You can speak with a DUI attorney as soon as possible. The attorney can assist you by speaking with you about the details, analyzing the arrest report, and talking to witnesses. You can work with the attorney to develop a strategy for your case.

  • How often will i be drug tested in san diego work furlough?

    sentenced to 120 days in san diego work furlough for possession. will i have to serve the entire time and how often will i be drug tested?

    no criminal background...just never had a liscenes..1st time getting pulled over judge told me 6mthns till i can get the lisecen..during the 6th mthns got pulled over by union police

    First, I recommend that you consult with an attorney in the jurisdiction of where the tickets were issued. With the information you have provided, it sounds like you have two cases pending, both for violation of unlicensed driver. It appears that the first judge either offered you six months in jail or gave you six months to get a license, These are important factors to speak with an attorney about. I recommend that you do not miss any court dates in connection with both of these matters.
