    It sounds like you have a second DUI within ten years. But, before you conclude that you have a second DUI in ten years, you need to have a DUI defense attorney examine whether your prior DUI conviction actually counts as a prior DUI in the state that you received your most current DUI (presumably CA). The significance of whether you have a first or second DUI and the length of time that you take before you make an appearance in court is related to whether or not you are remanded into...

    It sounds like you received a Deferred Entry of Judgment (DEJ). DEJ allows you to avoid ever having the conviction show up on your record if you successfully complete the terms of your DEJ (whatever the judge in your county told you that you had to do) for the time period that your sentence was diverted. Assuming that you did not receive any new criminal cases during the DEJ time period and that you succesfully completed your DEJ then you should have NO RECORD of the conviction. But, if...

    In a criminal law context, the most common way that a person can be discovered by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) and be subject to deportation proceedings is by getting arrested or placed in county jail. Generally, when an inmate is screened by the local jail at intake the Sheriff will determine whether that person has a lawful status in order to be in the United States. If that person does not, then the Sheriff will notify I.C.E. If your E2 visa was denied, what you...

    In order for the District Attorney to prove the felony DUI charge, the District Attorney needs to show that the accident was the result of your cousin driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The fact that there are no major injuries is helpful to your cousin's case. This fact may weigh in favor of your cousin receiving a misdemeanor DUI with injury as opposed to a felony DUI with injury. However, there are many other factors that will ultimately determine whether the...

    The first thing that you want to do is to photograph the bruises that you have. Then you need to determine when was it that you sustained the injuries to your hands. Was it during handcuffing? Were you asked any questions after the officer(s) grabbed your hands? If yes, these questions and answers may be kept out of evidence as a violation of your Miranda rights. In 1984 the United States Supreme Court in Berkemer v. McCarty (1984) 468 U.S. 420 held that Miranda rights did not need to be...
