    What I don't see mentioned above is the possibility of serving the time via Electronic Monitoring. While it is not as widely available in Ventura as in other counties, it is a possibility. Good luck, and let me know if I can be of further assitance.

  • How long does CHP have to inform DMV of a DUI?

    I was arrested April 6 and had a scheduled hearing on May 6. May 6, I went to DMV and was told nothing showed up in their system.

    Jasen’s Answer

    I suggested calling the DMV Mandatory Actions Unit in in Sacramento to inquire about the status of your license. They can be reached at (916)657-6525. Be sure to check any paperwork you may have received for a court date as well. Calling a locally experienced DUI attorney would also be a good idea. Good luck.

    I was arrested for aggravated DWI a few months ago. The breathalyzer said I blew a .26, which is impossible since I only had 5 drinks in 4 hours (3 beers and 2 vodka and redbulls). I disappeared and a little while later, I was arrested for the DWI...

  • Police admitted that they had a dash cam video of my dui arrest and subsequent search narcotics possession arrest.

    My attorney immediately requested it or subpoena it and was told it was accidentally destroyed and is not available. Is that grounds for a motion to dismiss in Connecticut? Thanks

    Jasen’s Answer

    You should really be asking your attorney this question. They should be in a much better position to answer your questions. Good luck.

  • Ex Spouse sentenced to 60 Days in jail for 2 DUIs is house arrest an option?

    In California when you report to serve a multiple DUI (2) jail sentence, can you request house arrest at that time? If so, is it usually granted?

    Jasen’s Answer

    It depends on the county, and is often referred to as EM, or Electronic Monitoring. I'd suggest that your ex spouse speak to his or her attorney about this. Good luck.

    Jasen’s Answer

    It most likely means that the prosecutor doesn't have the results of your blood test. Depending on the county and the court, such a delay isn't uncommon. However, I would definitely suggest that you consult with a locally experienced DUI attorney. Good luck.
