My 20 year old son, who has a juvenile record for shoplifting, bought a car from a "friend". This car turned out to be stolen and the plates that were on the car had been used on 5 different vehicles. He does have some documentation to prove that...
Less reliance on speculation and law enforcement's uneducated (and incorrect) opinions regarding the elements of the offense of VC 10851 which will need to be proven.
Your son could still be violated on the probation case even if he beats the new charges. Even more the reason to make sure he has quality, locally experienced, criminal defense counsel ASAP.See question
So I hit a tree and was totalled my car. I did not take the breathelyzer I opted for the blood exam. I was given the regular sobriety test however I had my contacts in and my eyes stung. Plus the ground I was working on was on a hill so it was wor...
You seem to have a lot to lose. Best move is to hire the best, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney you can afford. Don't delay. But if you do, at least call to setup your DMV hearing within 10 calendar days of your arrest.
.09 is a relatively low BAC but that needs to be balanced against the accident. Be proactive, not reactive, not give yourself the best chance at avoiding a DUI conviction.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 be proactive, not reactive. Hire a quality, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney to handle the DMV APS hearing (need to call within 10 calendar days of the accident/arrest and setup a future hearing) and reach out to the appropriate prosecutorial agency to monitor the case.
It appears you were arrested for DUI then given a certificate of release pursuant to Penal Code section 849(b). That is quite common when alleged DUI drivers are involved in an accident and taken to the hospital for an extended period of time.See question
I want to know what options I have to get it dropped or expunged. I have found it difficult to find employment and I really would like to find work.
You may be eligible for both, even if you went to (local) prison. But that will depend on the exact charge you were convicted of and where exactly you served your "prison" sentence.
Retain a quality, experienced criminal defense attorney to review your conviction and potentially file the appropriate paperwork for you.See question
Ok so I am facing some serious time in California for a Felony DUI with Great Bodily Injury. There were 4 people in their car I hit and 3 of them had injuries which constitute GBI. That said the victims are super involved in the case, attemd eve...
Yes, but only if you qualify for the services of court appointed counsel.
But if you have the money to hire private counsel, why not just hire a better lawyer this time around to relieve your current attorney? Your mother seems involved in your defense. Perhaps she can also assist with the attorney's fees. You've got A LOT on the line here.See question
There were glass bottles in a trash bag at our tailgate site that the officers heard clanking. No one was holding a bottle or drinking from the bottles they were in the trash bag. The police officer approached and gave my son the bottle citation ...
He can, and should, fight the ticket by hiring a quality criminal defense attorney to appear in court for him to contest the charge.See question
My husband is currently on informal probation for battery with bodily injury and he serves 4 and a half months in county jail.his ex girlfriend just filed charges against him for domestic violence and now he has a warrant out. The whole time he wa...
In addition to the year he would be facing on a misdemeanor DV charge, he would also be subject to the added time of a probation violation for the battery with GBI case.See question
She has gotten into a wreck and is in the hospital and parents are trying to charge me. Will I get in trouble if I never met or seen this person
You're leaving out a key allegation in all of this, and I am glad you aren't posting it on a public forum.
Contact a few quality, locally experienced, criminal defense attorneys for assistance.
The parents cannot "charge" anyone. All they can do is file a police report.See question
I was pulled over and asked to search my car.. I had no prblems because I'm 16 years sober. They even had a little clip to act as a belt buckle. Is there any chance to get the charges dropped?
There may be an issue relating to the initial traffic stop. It seems like you gave consent to have your vehicle searched so that likely undoes any search issues that can be litigated, but you never know.
A misdemeanor reduction may be more realistic than an outright dismissal, but almost anything is possible on the right set of facts, the right defendant, and the right defense attorney.
In the interim, please do not post any more case specific admissions/facts on public forums.
I was arrested for a dui and I just read that I had to set up a hearing from the DMV within ten days of my arrest and I did without knowing why. the officer didn't give me a form saying my license isn't suspended or anythin.
Better to be safe/proactive than sorry/reactive.See question
