  • Can i reopen a case , i plead guilty too? Court Date was no more than a week old from now.

    I had no idea really on how to handle the case , just went to court to see what would happen. I was being charged with a DUI , .8 and .7 was what i had on the breathalyser , when they were charging me , they told me about the .8 charge , they drop...

    This is exactly why it is a BAD idea to handle these things without an attorney. A wet is priorable for purposes of a DUI. If you want to withdraw your plea, get an attorney to help you.

  • My girlfriend is getting investigated help?

    a month ago before school ended my girlfriend hit a girl in her head my girlfriend was suspended but this month im guessing the other girls parents pressed charged and an investigator came to question her but she wasnt home so im wondering will sh...

    Slavik’s Answer

    Impossible to say. The girl's parent's did not press charges. Only the prosecutor can decide to file charges. I suspect no charges have been filed, as police are investigating. If there is enough evidence to charge your girlfriend, then the prosecutor will make a decision. You should tell your girlfriend that she should not spill her guts to the investigator. If the police contact her, she will need to contact an attorney. She should not be talking with the police without her attorney present. Assuming your girlfriend is a minor, her parents will need to help her in this process.

  • I got caught driving with a suspended license

    what will happen to me in court

    Slavik’s Answer

    It depends on why your license was suspended in the first place. This is a misdemeanor, so there is potential for jail. If you're on probation for a DUI, this could be very big problem. If you haven't discussed your predicament with an attorney, I suggest you do soon.

  • Do i need an attorney and do you think i have a chance of getting out of this?

    Slavik’s Answer

    It would be a mistake to handle this on your own. Although volitional movement is a requirement for a DUI conviction, that can be proved through circumstantial evidence. You have a case, but don't screw it up by going it alone.

    Slavik’s Answer

    You're likely eligible for a restricted license after 18 months with proof of enrollment in a program and proof of SR-22.

  • In filling out applications for work, do I have to say I was convicted with a wet and reckless? I am in California.

    I was stopped for expired vehicle registration stickers. He then could tell I was drinking and when I blew .09, the cops took me to First chance rather than jail. Im wanting to get a new job but I dont know if I should say yes I have been arrest...

    Slavik’s Answer

    First chance is basically an alternative to jail after you get arrested. It's essentially a dorm room. You need to speak with attorney because you still need to appear at the arraignment. You also need to schedule a hearing with the DMV within 10 days of your arrest to avoid an automatic license suspension. If you haven't discussed this matter with an attorney, you should.

    As far as the job application, employers are not permitted to ask about an arrest that did not result in a conviction. I'm assuming you weren't convicted yet, so I wouldn't worry about this potential question in the hiring process. That said, this should be the least of your worries.

  • 2 hrs after driving .23 BAC at time of blood, not time of driving. DA is offering me a plea but using the .23

    I had the blood test 2 hours after driving and DA is offering a plea using that for my sentence. How do I go about getting the number of bac down, when it most likely was lower at time of driving. Just had my 3rd drink and left right after. Is the...

    Slavik’s Answer

    If you have an attorney representing you, which I strongly suggest you do, direct this question to him/her. The rising BAC defense will probably not help you much if the DA is already offering some kind of deal. There are enhanced penalties for driving with a BAC of .15 or higher and .20 or higher. If the DA is offering an enhancement on a .15, this may be a good deal. If the attorney is offering to drop the (a) charge, that is not a deal - that's the norm. If that DA is offering a wet, this may be a good deal. Still, without knowing the facts, it's impossible for anyone on this forum to advise you. Speak with your attorney.

  • When can you get your license back when you have a dui wet n wreckless.

    almost done with my dui requirements that the judge gave me. i have 5 more classes to attend for A.A. and 15 more hours to go with community server etc...

    Slavik’s Answer

    I agree that is a DMV issue. If this is your first DUI, your license was probably suspended for 4 months. After the first month, you can get a restricted license with proof that you enrolled in this class and proof of financial liability (SR-22). However, if you get a restricted license, the suspension will last for 6 months. So if you're already in your fourth month, you should just wait it out. Good luck.

  • I want to know if its possible to change the name of the defendant from the owner of the business to the business itself?

    I was wondering if it's possible to do that on the day of the trial by bringing a motion. The owner's home address is the business address and the owner is the agent of service.

    Slavik’s Answer

    You could also ask the defendant to stipulate to the amendment and in return you would waive the filing of a separate answer.
