Assuming a few things, to include that you had no other illegal substances in your system from the chemical test that you took, that you had no priors, and that you are not under age, then the prosecution does not have a lot to work with. If my assumptions are in fact true, then I would anticipate your DUI charges being dismissed. However, I would also anticipate that they will move forward on the other charges.Ask a similar question
You can call the DA's office and they'll tell you if the case was rejected or if its being reviewed. When its been that long after the original date, they probably rejected it. If you need the DA's phone number, call or email me.

In addition to the answers above, it may turn on whether you we're over 21 at the time this happened. There is a presumption in the law that if you're under a .05, you're presumed to be NOT under the influence of alcohol. If it was a blood test, the DA may push for a drug DUI, but it just depends on what the officer writes in his report compared to what actually happened, and your blood work (again, if you did a blood test).

Sounds like La Habra or Brea. If you are under 21, your license would be suspended bythe DMV, but there is still no DUI for the alcohol. A DUI charge for drugs could only result if there was a blook test that showed the presence of an impairing substance. It sounds like the case was rejected, but I agree that you can find this out for sure by calling the DA's office in the jurisdiction in which you were arrested. Your friend's case may get processed through traffic as an infraction carrying a $100 fine, but the facts suggst there was no PC for the search that turned up the marijuana. Good luck.Ask a similar question
It sounds likely that your case is not being pursued. It's a good idea to continue to monitor the case.
If you're looking for closure, you might be able to find an attorney that can speak with someone at the DA's office about having the case formally dismissed.
