I have the option of SCRAM for 3 months to drop one of the charges. Does it make a difference not to have both counts, or is it better to remove one by doing SCRAM. If it is better to plead to only one, which is better to plead to, A or B. I am...
I prefer resolving a case using the "B" count. However, if your case is downtown there is a benefit to plead to both charges if the terms can be better tailored by the judge.See question
Was in accident ,got taken to hospital. Had a bunch of test . The police officer took license and gave me pink slip,but never took me to jail or gave me a citation,What do I do?
You still want an APS hearing set up. You will get a notify letter if the prosecution feels there is a case against you. It is key to be proactive and if you can hire an attorney to work on a case. In most cases it is a matter of time. Use the time you have.See question
I was arrested for dui but I was under a .08. I am not sure what to do next. I scheduled my DMV hearing but do I need a lawyer for that and for court date? I need a public defender how do I do that?
If you are under .08% and you are not under 21 than an APS hearing may not happen. The key with the APS hearing it to get the videos and such before some January appearance date when a government attorney will briefly look at your case. You get some evidence from the DMV, which will NOT consist of the video. If your arresting agency was the CHP or SDPD than there is a good chance there is video. The key is to begin reviewing the reports. You do not need an attorney for the DMV hearing, although it would always be advisable to have an attorney.See question

The San Diego DAs office will aggressively prosecute a DUI case with injury. They will still aggressively prosecute a Drug DUI.
Depending on a totality of factors (a big one being injuries of the other party) it will determine the prosecutions chances of proving the case or you getting a lesser charge.
If you can I recommend obtaining a local attorney through Avvo.

Head to the court you were to appear. I would not count on Courtesy notices nor should you expect one to come.See question
I received a DUI in Sept 2012. I completed my OHS program but never completed my community service hours. I am under the impression I have a bench warrant out for my arrest. Would it be possible to get a lawyer on my behalf and go in front of a ju...
As stated earlier, you probably have a warrant. A judge is almost assuredly not going to convert any sanctions to a fine. You would be fortunate to come back and get the hours reimposed without any additional penalties. Ignoring your agreement with the court is not going to endear the judge or prosecutor.See question
I'm currently on supervised felony probation and must submit to a drug test any time my probation officer requires. I'm also a 4th ammendment waiver.
Mr. Cernyar gives sound advice. There are many factors that will go into a decision, including why you want to smoke pot and if you have a drug history.See question
Im on probation, prop 64 passed and was wondering if i could smoke marijuana without violating probation
As Mr. Finnecy accurately states, it depends on probation conditions. If it is a term and you want to request it off as a probation term you can go back into court and make the request.See question
I got a DUI but I wasn't really drunk. My BAC reported was .10 which i know legally is considered drunk. My question is for my court date which is in December. Since is my first DUI (Im 36 years old).. would u advice me to ask the judge to change ...
The prosecution is in judge of the charging documents and negotiations. The judge has a place in the DUI process but getting a wet is not one of them. You have 10 days to notify the DMV to get your case started. It would be prudent to consider getting an attorney.See question
