    DA files charges when they feel there is sufficient evidence. They often are concerned with protecting the "victim". Jury is the fact finder, not the DA nor the judge.

    You should contact an attorney. Your ticket may say that it is an infraction now, but the District Attorney can charge you with a misdemeanor (PC 23152(a) Driving under the influence of Alcohol/Drugs). If you do get charged with a misdemeanor and you plead guilty usually they do put you on probation. If you would like, you can contact me regarding your options. If you do hire an attorney, the attorney can appear in court on your behalf, whether you are here or not. The best solution in...

    Yes, constitution requires evidence of a crime to be obtained through legal means. There are certain exceptions to probable cause requirement. But even evidence of a crime obtained by an exception to the probable cause requirement must be obtained legally.

    You made the right decision. You should not give statements to investigators without an attorney present. If they have enough evidence against you, they will either try to get an arrest warrant and come arrest you, or they will submit their report to the District Attorney and you will get a letter in the mail with a notice to appear. If you can afford an attorney, you might want to hire one to intervene.

    If your only being charged with a probation violation for failure to to complete community service for driving on a suspended license, $72,000 for bail seems a little high. Be sure that you are not also being charged with something else. As for what they can do, the judge can take you into custody and give you jail time for failure to show up to court with your proof. If you take proof of your son's illness and his death certificate the Judge may sympathize with your situation and give you...

    The easiest way to approach this is to talk to your probation officer especially if drug testing is part of your probationary terms. If the probation officer clears you, you should not have a problem. If you do not get clearance from probation, you should go back to court and get approval from the Judge.

    Yes they can. Whether they will or not depends on the circumstances of your case, your prior criminal history if any, and whether or not you pose a flight risk.

    If you can't afford an attorney, you should definitely ask for a public defender. Do not post details of your case online. In California maximum punishment for misdemeanor is one year county jail. Depending on what you are being charged with exactly. If its a first offense you may get no jail. You should consult with an attorney with specfics about the case and your prior history if any.
