  • How can I change my statement I submitted to cops, I said my boyfriend kicked me and he did not strike me. I could not think str

    Michael’s Answer

    I agree with my colleague that you cannot "change" your statement. However, it may be more productive to speak with his defense attorney to discuss the best way to submit your revised version. Prosecutors are very wary of this and it often carries little weight in negotiations. His attorney may have a method by which he/she likes to proceed in these types of cases. Good Luck.

  • What are the consequences for a second dui and two months left of probation in California?

    Michael’s Answer

    Generally the "consequences" of a 2nd DUI conviction in 10 years is 10d to 1 yr in the county jail. Fines in fees which total just over $2000, 18 month repeat offender school and installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle and more like than not at least 3 yrs of summary probation depending on the court.

    On the violation of probation, you can sentenced to the maximum term for the charge(s) to which you were convicted less any credits for time already served.

    With all that being said, you should arrange a consultation with an experienced DUI attorney to discuss the specific facts of your case.

    Good Luck.

  • Is any of the following information strikable?

    Michael’s Answer

    It is somewhat unclear as what you mean by "strikable". Criminal procedure and the admissibility of evidence is more complicated than can be explained in this forum. Contact an attorney that can answer your specific questions.

    Yes, it can be a proper form of evidence. Just like the admission you posted here.

  • I got my 4th DUI in 1988 haven't had one since what can I expect?

    Michael’s Answer

    Typically DUI's are priorable for 10 years. Any DUI within 10 years of a felony DUI (your 4th) is a felony. If your last DUI was in 1988 and you completed all that was required of you back then, the current one should be charged as a first. You should consult with an attorney to get specific answers to your questions. Good Luck

  • I have not completed my dui classes & got arrested for "disorderly conduct drunk" would I be given jail time?

    Michael’s Answer

    Assuming that you are still on probation for your DUI, the answer is technically it is possible, but unlikely. Your exposure is up to 180 days on the drunk in public and whatever is left from your DUI (meaning the max exposure minus any time credits you received). You should consult an attorney for information specific to your individual case.

  • What should we do when pd isn't doing all he should be doing? I want a second opinion. Please help

    Michael’s Answer

    You can certainly fire a PD, or any attorney, and hire your own private counsel. It is impossible to tell if a plea is the right move for you son based on limited information here. And ultimately it is up to him. If you want or he want an second opinion you should consult with an attorney in person. Good luck.
