  • Will I still be prosecuted after 33 yrs if I go back to ca?

    In 1983 I got a DUI arrest in ca. I missed court date and moved to another state.

    William’s Answer

    You should get a good local defense attorney to help you proactively handle this. Because, yes, there may well still be an active warrant in the system for you, and if you get pulled over for something, you could get taken to jail. Further, your driving privileges in Calif. are certainly gone, and so there will be DMV issues you need to address in order to legally drive in California, too. Lawyer up. Good luck.

  • DUI in passenger seat

    If you have had a DUI can you get another one if riding in the passenger seat of a car? This is something I've heard many times.

    William’s Answer

    No. The "D" in DUI stands for "Driving." A passenger cannot be charged for DUI, because a passenger isn't the driver.

    William’s Answer

    I think you should consult a lawyer here to help you. I do not know what "probation was banned" means? And perhaps there was a deal in place at the time of the original plea for this to be dismissed? (I ask because you mentioned something to this effect). But if not, you need to consult with a lawyer. This could possibly be reduced to a misdemeanor (per Penal Code section 17(b).) And there really is no 'expungement', as penal code section 1203.4 actually, technically dismisses the case, which is great and totally worth while but it will Not completely scrub this clean from your record (which it sounds like you're hoping for, and a lot of people are misinformed about.) See a lawyer. Good luck.

  • Will this speeding ticket, or potentially other vehicle related citations be cause to violate my probation?

    William’s Answer

    As long as you are validly licensed and insured, a simple speeding infraction alone should not violate your probation or cause you any problems. It's "real" arrests and misdemeanors or felonies that will violate you and cause problems, not traffic infractions. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    Sorry this is happening. Sounds like he could be facing some serious charges in juvenile court. If you can afford to hire a lawyer, then you should asap. Look on here for a good, local, experienced defense lawyer to help him. If not, the court will appoint a lawyer for him. Don't wait on this. If he is deemed a ward of the court, or placed on probation, the court will need to know about you, your address etc. too, to be able to place your son with you eventually. So, you need to be communicating with the lawyer and court, too, and attending the court appearances if you can. I'd lawyer up asap if I was you. Don't wait. Good luck.

    Sorry to hear all this. What you're referring to is a change of venue, but those are tough to achieve, and a high standard. You should consult with a good, local defense attorney right away to get some proper, in-depth legal advice right away. Lawyer up, don't wait. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    Very sorry this is happening to you. I concur with Ms. Cini's advice. You should change the locks and contact police and probation, or better yet have your attorney contact them in writing and via calls, to inform them that he hasn't resided with you in 2 years, etc. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    There's obviously a lot to this story. I'd advise you to say no more about it online, on a public site. You should find a good, local defense lawyer and consult with him/her asap and honestly about the entire situation. This is serious and you need legal counsel to represent you and advise you. Lawyer up, don't wait. Good luck.
