    If you were driver, and no driving seen, you have a good chance. Yes the Public Defender can help you. Getting a PD however will depend on your financial status, but they can do a great job. If everything you said is true, you have a good case.

    This appears to be the same question that you asked before. If not handled correctly, you can have your credit attacked, but that requires things they may not want to do, so don't fool around with this, contact a local criminal defense attorney now, and don't sign or do anything without that lawyers help. It may seem like a lot of money now, but that can save a lot more later.

    Your numbers are to low to file, but make sure you appear just to make sure you get paper from the court that nothing has been filed. Also, you should have requested a hearing with the DMV just to protect yourself even though the will set aside if not a .08. Keep the papers from the court as you may want them for employment at some time in the future because the citation shows on your driving record.

    If you have already plead guilty to the charge, you must show good cause to withdraw your plea, and you must do it before you are sentenced. If you are going to hire a private lawyer, you need to do it right away. It is difficult to get your plea withdrawn.

    If they did not call the police at that time, they probably will not. However, they will have someone from their legal department contact you wanting you to sign documents. Don't do it without the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer. That lawyer should be able to work it out that you sign nothing, and they do not prosecute. Therefore, you do not end up with a criminal record. Seek out a local criminal defense attorney now, don't wait. Then you will have someone to go to when you need...

    In California if you are on probation you are required to take the PAS (breath test) in the street. If you are .01%, the DMV will suspend your license for 1 year. No restricted license, a full suspension. However, if it is .01, you should have your lawyer immediately get the records on the machine because if it was reading high during its accuracy checks, you may be able to beat this in a hearing because the machine would not be working properly. In fact, you should get the records to make...

    If facts were really ignored, then she can ask that a new attorney be appointed to withdraw her plea. This is tough to get the court to do, but you have the right to present all favorable evidence in your case. You may have seen that a new trial is being given to Mr. Kennedy for exactly this reason, and that is after he spent many years in prison. A good lawyer for you to contact on this issue in California is Don Bartell in Riverside, CA.
