My probation for DUI ended on 1/27/17 for Santa Clara County CA. Is it still on my record? Should I get it expunged? How do I get it expunged? I ask because I am looking to get my drivers license back and get a car for school. However, I believe I...
1. There is no expungement in California. There is a 1203.4 dismissal, but it is not going to happen when you picked up another case.
2. You cannot be violated on a probation that is expired or terminated.
3. There is no procedure for removing a DUI from your DMV.
4. Even with a dismissal, the public record of the case is eternal.
I got arrested 6yrs ago and was wondering if I still had to put I was arrested on my apartment application since it's been so long.
You really don't give enough information for an intelligent answer. On the other hand, strict honesty is what I always advise.See question
I saw there was a warrant out for me I went to check again and it states warning-case currently susppened but it still says warrant alert. What does this mean
Jay is correct. I have no idea what "suspended" means in this context, but warrants are both eternal and inconvenient.See question
I was on the trolley and was asked for my proof of fare. I got scared and gave them my sister's name and when they said they were going to write me a ticket I followed through with giving them the rest of her information. I know foolish doesn't be...
For future reference, giving false information to a law enforcement officer with the intent to mislead is a separate crime in and of itself.See question
I have a traffic violation in CA from 2006. I moved to New York and forgot to pay it. I could like to resolve this issue but was told that I need to appear in person. 3,000 miles is a long way to go for a traffic violation. How could I address th...
Mr. Roberts is correct. For most infractions and misdemeanors the courts in my county allow counsel to appear, have the warrant recalled, and appear pursuant to Penal Code §977 in lieu of a personal appearance by the defendant. I have done this quite a number of times. I suspect the courts in Westminster allow similar proceedings.See question
Was arrested for elder abuse. I was never charged. DA never showed to the court hearing.
Mr. Parry is correct. A further concern is that, if asked about any arrest history, you answer honestly. Not only is it the right and prudent thing to do (arrest records are eternal), but most of those forms are filled out under penalty of perjury.See question
I haven't had luck coming up with the 174$ needed to enroll into the program and tomorrow is the day I'm due to be already enrolled that was issued by the judge and courts. I'm wanting to know what my options are or what I can possibly do to buy m...
You had better call your lawyer or get yourself down to court tomorrow to ask for the time you need. Usually the courts here give some pretty good lead time, so I wonder why you are in this spot on the last day of a holiday weekend. Anyway, if it's a felony call your lawyer in the morning, and if it's a misdemeanor, get yourself to the court clerk's office and get it on calendar.See question
I am 18 it is my first charge. It was marked as an infraction. I know it can start at $150 but what the highest it could be? I live in California.
Counsel is right. The assessments can be different, depending on jurisdiction and local policies. You might try giving the local public defender a call. They usually have a pretty good handle on these things.See question
I have 2 misdemeanor fta bench warrants in 2 different counties in Georgia. I was homeless and couldn't remain in the state. Now living back home in CA, trying to get the matter resolved without having to go back to GA. Whether it be paid off or I...
Counsel is correct. Hire local counsel. With misdemeanors, they may be able to do resolve the matter without you going there. Do not bother to turn yourself in here - The California authorities may not have any idea what to do with you. I get calls regularly from people in other states with unresolved misdemeanors and often resolve matters for people who never come here.See question
I was charged with two misdemeanor charges. Never arrested, booked, or anything like that just received a letter in the mail to go to court which i did. I received a diversion deal to stay out of trouble for a year. I got all charges dismissed.
Of course you should disclose this. You should answer all questions honestly. Usually those questionnaires are signed under penalty of perjury. Secondly, the fact that the misdemeanor charges were filed, no matter what the outcome, is a permanent public criminal record that lasts forever. Third, a diversion deal, as you describe it, often has collateral consequences that may impinge your ability to do some jobs.See question
