  • Will the Dmv be notified with a charge of 23152 A and bac of 0.6 in the state of california?

    This is my only question thank you

    William’s Answer

    The DMV will be notified b/c you were arrested and given a temporary license. However, they will take no action at this time because you were under a .08.

    The court can still proceed against you if in addition to being a .06 you displayed symptoms of being under the influence of alcohol OR drugs and alcohol. If you are convicted of a DUI in court the DMV will take action against you after the conviction even if you were a .06.

  • Will a GBI charge affect an entrance to pharmacy? is it possible to expunge because of an admission into a university?

    My Fiance who is early twenties had a GBI charge about 3 years ago and gotta one year sentence for it and is now on probation which will be over soon without any violations, however he has a GPA 3.6 and wants to get into pharmacy, but to do that i...

    William’s Answer

    My response is a combination of the previous responses. You should hire a criminal attorney to try and reduce the case to a misdemeanor. Not all felonies are reducible to misdemeanors. Once the reduction occurs I would then move for an expungement. This does not erase the conviction but helps a lot in cleaning up his record. Then he can file a certificate of rehabilitation. If the court grants his certificate then it is one more positive thing he can show to the pharmacy board. Prior to applying to pharmacy school however, I would check with a licensing attorney to see if any of this will help. It would be a shame to go through everything and still not be able to be a pharmacist. Regardless, cleaning up your record as much is possible is alwalys helpful regardless of career. The steps are: (1) reduction to misdemeanor if possible; (2) expungment and (3) Certificate of rehabilitation. I have successfully helped many people in similar situations.

  • PC488 - Dismissal but still have question

    Today was my day to appear on court for petty theft PC488. (Taking items a little over $100). My case was dismissed, but I did not fully understand the meaning of dismissal. The DA just told us that "nothing can get better than a dismissal", so I ...

    William’s Answer

    There is nothing more to do on the case. You have a dismissal which is better then an expungment. If you did not committ a theft you can ask for the arrest to be removed with a Factual Innocense motion under Penal Code Section 851.5.

  • How to get my car out of impound earlier than 30 day hold

    my boyfriend was driving my car without his license and my car was impounded the car is registered to me but police told me i cannot get it back until he shows he has a valid license which he is unable to get due to unpaid tickets. i do not have $...

    William’s Answer

    I would have a lawyer speak to the police about releasing the hold on it. As long as you are licensed and have insurance they can give it back to you.

    Sometimes the police will keep the vehicle in impound if the registered owener KNEW that the person they gave car to did not have a valid license. Regardless, a skillful attorney shold be able to get it out. Also, you are entitled to a hearing (usually with the clerk of the court) regarding the impound. I would consult with an attorney however.

  • I recved a letter from the place I shop lifted from. If I pay 350 in 20days no actions will take place when I go to crt. ???????

    Is this True? Can they drop all charges against me?

    William’s Answer

    Unfortunatley the letter from the store is only a civil demand and has nothing to do with the criminal case. On occassion I have been able to resolve shoplifting cases by negotiating directly with the store and they have agreed to a civil compromise type of agreement.

    If the case has not already been referred to the police or the District Attorney then hiring an attorney may result in the case not going to court. I would suggest you move quickly however.

  • My license is suspended for ten years... is there any way to get it back sooner? if so how?

    I have more than 52 point... I've paid all the tickets just alot of points

    William’s Answer

    You have a lot of points on your record. However, you can still petition the DMV for a hearing to permit them to put you on probation and end the suspension. This will not be easy given the number of points on your license. Are you sure you have that many points? You have nothing to lose by requesting an hearing.

  • Can I get my A#

    my a # expired on '96 or 97' and I couldn't have it renewed because they have said I was a menace to society but really I have been good now I have all my tickets payed been working ....My daughter want to petition for me can she?

    William’s Answer

    When you say your A# I assume that means you were sentenced to prison and received an A# that signifies you were in treatment for Drug addiction while imprisoned. The Judge at sentencing on a new case can decide whether you can requalify for an A# and so can the Department of Corrections upon request.
