    If you just over corrected while turning, that should be an infraction that could result in a fine. However, the DMV may take your license and require a special hearing with letters from your doctors stating that you are fine to drive. We need to know exactly what the officer charged you with, code section, to be specific. You should get a lawyer that is local and have him or her review the citation in full.

    Hire a private attorney immediately to try to prevent the DA from filing against you. If you wait for the PD, the charges will have been filed, and the fight is on. If on probation, you may be illegible for revocation and reinstatement same terms and conditions depending on the circumstances. But it would be better to try to cut this off before it happens if possible at this late date.

    This generally occurs when you are on probation or under 21 and two actions are being taken. These can be the dates that the addition action occurs, but more information is needed to see exactly what you are being charged with.

    Get an attorney where you live. This is key. He or she will know what the local District Attorney who will have input in this. Making changes is very difficult because if a deal is made, and she breaks the deal in any way, she may find herself on the way to State prison. There are always, and I do mean always some facts that you are not aware of that the DA has and will make the difference. These have to be considered when trying to change a deal. You need that local attorney even the...

    The first thing you should do is get the blood retested. Have a DUI lawyer in your area take the case, subponea the blood sample and have it checked for preservative levels and alcohol. The lawyer should also subponea all the records on the Gas Chromatograph and bench notes. Next, the should look at your prescription to be sure that it is labeled to not to mix with alcohol. And, this is just the start of looking for defenses of your case. It is not a good case as you have presented it, but...

    Receiving an infraction is not considered to be a probation violation. When the Court tells you to be of good conduct, don't drive without a license and insurance, obey all laws the Court realizes that from time to time people speed or run a stop sign. What they don't want you doing is committing another misdemeanor or felony, and this means driving under the influence or on a suspended license; although, any misdemeanor or felony could violate your probation. The Court usually never hears...

    Charges that are dismissed cannot be covered, some call it expunged, but that is incorrect, but the rule only applies to cases that have a conviction which you don't. The arrest will always show up, but it does not mean anything. Apply for job and they ask you if you have been convicted of misdemeanor or felony. Your answer is NO>

    $2000 is a felony. First, cancel the credit card and report it stolen if have not. Usually, you are only responsible for only about $50. Macy's and Target should have requested ID along with credit card for this type of purchase. Next, you should be filing a police report. If they know who the person is, then he should be arrested. Also, contact the District Attorney of Alameda County fraud department and ask them to file charges. If you know who this person is, and here is the tough...

    When you fail to appear the Court orders a warrant 40508 VC which is an increase in fine, and notifies the DMV of your failure to appear. The DMV immediately suspends you license, so if you are stopped they will impound your car and cite you for driving on a suspended license which is a Misdemeanor up to 6 months in the County Jail and/or $1,000 fine. If you immediately go to the traffic court, the judge will usually allow you to get an abstract to clear with DMV, but you must take the...
