I was arrested for DUI (and not convicted yet) and my license was taken away when I was released from jail. If my BAC result from the blood test that I took while I was in jail comes out to be under 0.08% next week, what is the quickest way for me...
If your BAC turns out to be under .08, you have an excellent chance that DMV will "set aside" your suspension. That is just at the local, not state level, however. It would be well worth your time to speak with an experienced criminal law attorney. Most lawyers in Avvo offer free consultations.See question

I would highly suggest that you not post any more admissions on social media. If a year has passed and there has been no filing, there is an excellent chance no charges will be filed (unless they want to go after you for a felony). It is probably a good idea to call a local criminal defense attorney to go through some additional facts which appear to be missing. Most attorneys here on Avvo offer free consultations.See question
I shoplifted some clothing from a very local clothing store. It was a private business, and was very small. I was caught shoplifting, and I immediately admitted to it. The owner took the clothes, and let me leave. Within a couple days, I got a mes...
Legally, the statute has run, so you are clear from any criminal charges and this should not be on your record. Bad decisions are sometimes great learning lessons. Hang in there.See question
I left a store & was stopped outside & asked to open my bag so I opened the bag with my purchases. I was then asked to open my purse. I then realized I was being accused of shoplifting. I was insulted but I complied. Assuming they were satisfied, ...
This is a strange set of facts. Nonetheless, a misdemeanor offense for theft on your record is very serious and troubling. I suggest that you contact an Orange County attorney (assuming this was the county where the event occurred) to discussed the facts. If it did occur in OC, there are definitely creative negotiating options with the DA's Office available to you.See question

Is there jail time for a first time offender.
It would really be worth your time to consult with an experienced attorney -- most attorneys on AVVO will give you a free consultation. I know this is a common theme among the answers you have received, but it is true. Orange County has a special way of dealing with the fraud cases, and consulting with an orange county attorney is your best option. Best of luck to you.See question
I did 4 months in jail for a crime I committed back in November 2015 I got out on March 2016. I happen to look up my name and i appear to have a warrant for the same crime. If I come in police contact will I get arrested again?
It is very likely that a warrant was issued for another aspect of your case, i.e., failure to appear, failure to pay fees, etc. You should be able to look up the reason for your warrant on occourts.org. You may also find it beneficial to speak with an attorney about this before going to court as you may be able to avoid going back into custody. Best of luck to you.See question

There are definitely ways to pursue further avenues for prosecution. Talk to a detective about a "cold call" or direct police questioning. You are also able to sue civilly in small claims court if the amount is under $10,000. Best of luck to you.See question
