    Quit listening to outsiders. PRAISE your mother. What happened to the dui? Any DMV hearing? if your lawyer is getting rehab with no jail from what I have read about Riverside you should be praising your lawyer also. Sounds like you need rehab if you are even getting with 5 miles of METH (the choice of losers). PAY back you Mom!!! and take responsibility for being irresponsible. I don't know Public Defenders in Riverside and maybe they are awesome. But, it has been my experience and I have...

    If you had a private lawyer or a public defender have them put it back on calendar. If you do not feel you can do it yourself go to the clerk of the court and have it put on calendar and ask for information on how to get a public defender to help you. The worst thing you could do is nothing. The other answers by the other lawyers here on AVVO are correct, listen to all of them. If a relative can afford to hire a LA lawyer you might try that. Often lawyers consult on what to do for free or a...

    You need to get husband a DUI attorney ASAP. There are MANY good ones in LA. Maybe he can get out without bail. Better to spend the $$ on a good lawyer than bail as he will probably get out if he has no other legal history> He or someone on his behalf MUST contact DMV within 10 days or he will lose his license. How long depends upon age, history and seriousness of FACTs. Often these case are reduced or child endangerment even dismissed but beg barrow or what ever to get a lawyer. NOW

    Sounds like no blood or urine test so without knowing more it sounds like a l standard DUI. You MUST call DMV or better have a lawyer do so tomorrow and ask for an in person hearing. If not you may lose your license. Sounds like a defensible case also. Get the best lawyer you can. Most give free consultation. Find one in the jurisdiction of arrest on AVVO

    Get the best lawyer in the jurisdiction of the alleged offense. If you also drank any alcohol ( statement you made on AVVO leaves out issues), a lawyer needs to call DMV within 10 calendar days of the arrest or you WILL lose your license even before court if any. Many questions arise a lawyer needs to ask. Do you fill your own teeth? I thought not GET a lawyer YESTERDAY get a "10" rated lawyer or go to www.california-dui-lawyers.org and find one...Duiking 41 years
