I have 2 dui(s), 2013 and 2015. I am still on probation for the 2nd one and I got arrested for public intoxication. I am married to a US citizen since 2010 and am a lawful permanent resident. The public intoxicatIon case is pending. If I get convi...
The 2 DUIs alone could be a problem, let alone the third pending misdemeanor drunk in public charge. You should retain a quality, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney to assist with the new charge and likely probation violation(s). That attorney should be able to refer you to a reputable immigration attorney to assist with that aspect.See question
I blew a .02 but was under the influence of drugs, I momentarily feinted, which caused a fender bender but the other party was able to drive away on her own accord. She commented that she may have had whiplash but when i checked my front bumper th...
Misdemeanor DUIs with accidents tend to be treated more harsh than non-=accidents. Since you say you were only a .02 BAC at the time of the chemical test, you may be OK with DMV and your license unless you are convicted of a DUI in court..and assuming you are over 21 years of age.
An ignition interlock device would not make much sense since it won't detect drugs.See question
Does the DA look at letters.. I recently was charged with a misdemeanor domestic violence, my boyfriend said I scratched him when he actually cut his neck because he was scared to go to jail for putting his hands on me and throwing my phone out t...
My experience is that prosecutors tend to look at, and consider, mitigation packets and exculpatory evidence presented to them by reputable attorneys more than they do the alleged victim of a DV assault.
Stop trying to deal with this yourselves and you risk continuing to make matters worse. Invest in a quality, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney.See question
i was also charged with felony evading although i did pull over and stop after less than 5 min after coming to my senses. i didnt cause any damage or anything else.
Prop 57 will have ZERO effect on DUI cases, as long as you don't go to prison for the DUI. Your bigger concern should be the felony evading charge, which carries a mandatory minimum 180 days in custody, whereas a first time misdemeanor DUI carries 180 days as a maximum custodial sanction.See question
I blew under the .08 but I was still arrested for a dui and submitted to a chemical test where I still blew under. And when I was arrested he did not read me my rights. I was also already pulled over CHP was the one who arrested me
It's good you are thinking of possible defenses, but take these to a few quality, locally experienced, criminal defense attorneys you will be meeting with, not hundreds of strangers on the internet.
The short answer is the fact your Miranda rights weren't read to you will likely have no, if only a minimal, effect on your case's outcome.See question
I was arrested for a dui, but I blew below a .08 I wasn't pulled over because I was driving recklessly. I was already pulled over and because I felt bad. I figured it was from alcohol from last night and having no food so I MADE myself throw up. T...
.08 without priors you should get a reduced charged offered by the prosecution. However, just because you "should" doesn't mean you will. And just because a reduced charge may be offered doesn't mean you should accept it.
Make sure you call DMV within 10 calendar from your arrest to calendar the DMV APS hearing. Ideally you can retain a quality, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney as well over the next few days.
Good Luck!See question
A C.I. repeatedly contacted my friend trying to get my friend to score an ounce of meth for him and repeatedly my friend said no he doesn't do things like that anymore. The C.I. told him ya but you do know where and who to get it from right ? Afte...
Probably a stretch given what appears to be your friend's prior criminal history, but it might be his only defense...assuming a favorable plea deal is not in his best interests.
Your friend needs a top notch, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney to assist.See question
I was arrested for domestic violence and released with no charges filed, the arrest was later lowered to a (detention only). How can I get this (detention only) removed from my record?
You can petition the arresting agency to seal and destroy your arrest record. When that is denied your attorney will need to get a court date and file the appropriate paperwork pursuant to Penal Code section 851.8. A judge will then determine whether YOU met YOUR burden.See question
I gave a bid for a job for $2500.00 and was arrested and given a citation for acting in the capacity of a contractor with out a license well as advertising in capacity of a contractor with out a license. What might my fines be?
Assuming you are convicted, you are facing jail time and thousands of dollars in fines. Retain the best, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney you can afford.See question
The paper came from the city attorney's office.
It appears misdemeanor charges have been filed against you. Your focus should be on the arraignment date and hiring a quality, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney more than it is should be on the book and release.See question
