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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
