You pose good questions, and this is confusing. From what I'm hearing your case has been reduced to a misdemeanor and dismissed (people often colloquially refer to this PC 1203.4 process as an "expungement" but it's really a dismissal of your case.) The reduction to a misdemeanor is huge, and a good benefit to you as this forevermore and retroactively makes this case - that's now been dismissed - a misdemeanor. So, legally, you had a misdemeanor case dismissed from your record. But be...
No, you have to suck it up and do the DMV program. Even if the court 'rescinded' and didn't order it (which they most assuredly would not do), the DMV will still require completion of this on their own before you can get your license back.
It will still come up, yes, on most background checks. What you wisely did was actually have this 'dismissed' per PC 1203.4 motion. This dismisses the case, but does not wipe clean your arrest record and the fact that you were charged, and convicted. What it does is allow you to tell potential private sector employers that you have no convictions if asked. However, all public sector inquiries or applications still require you to disclose this conviction (per PC 1203.4, but you can still...
You need to consult a good, local, experienced criminal defense attorney right away. You could face implications on your DUI case if they elect to violate your probation there. Also, if the underlying drug charge is an infraction you are not entitled to appointed counsel... all the more reason to hire your own attorney, as you stand no chance without one...and the sooner the better. Good luck.
My colleagues are correct, you need to seek the advice of an experienced immigration lawyer right away. And do him/her and yourself a favor when you set that consultation - bring all your DUI disposition paperwork, and sentencing documents, as well as all documentation relative to your current immigration status in this Country. That will help expedite things. Good luck.
Sorry for your plight. I agree with Mr. Murillo's answer. And borrow the money from a friend or relative and just get started. It's better to owe the money to family/friend than to keep getting in trouble and getting more fines from the court - the court can put you in jail, and i'm sure you cannot afford that, either. Good luck.
Sorry this happened to you. You need to contact a good, local criminal defense attorney right away. And do not post anymore about this, nor discuss it with anyone except your attorney. You may very well have a case worth fighting, and a good lawyer upon receipt of the discovery should be able to properly advise you. Get a lawyer asap. Good luck.
Sorry this happened to you, but it sounds like you have a very defensible case and should hire an attorney to fight it asap. Borrow the money if you have to, but consult an experienced, local criminal attorney right away. There are dire consequences from both the court and DMV on a 2nd DUI office (including up to a 2 year license suspension and 18 month, 'SB38', DMV program if you lose.) And there are deadlines, so all the more reason to see an attorney right away. Good luck.
It's possible but not immediately likely. You need to show up with good, local, competent counsel. Most of us offer free consultations. In addition to the VOP, you'll certainly be facing a new case/charge as well, and your VOP will trail along with that case - usually a good lawyer can get them both/all resolved without the necessity of a hearing. Have proof with you of a job, or going to school, etc., so as to give the judge more reasons Not to remand you. Good luck.
I am not aware of any such 'deadline.' The statute of limitations on a misdemeanor DUI is 1 (one) year. Hire a good local, lawyer to track this for you, and represent you in both the DMV case, and the court case. Don't wait. Good luck.
