Your conviction in Pomona triggered a 6 mo. suspension which can be converted into a restricted by showing proof of enrollment in a 1st offender program, filing an SR22 proof of insurance and paying a reinstatement fee. You probably had an Administrative suspension from the DMV as well which can also be converted. If you do that, an experienced criminal lawyer may be able to get your suspended license case reduced to a VC 12500 which is a non point count charge. This will help avoid a new suspension based upon too many points in one year and also avoid what is a mandatory jail sentence for driving on a suspended license fro a DUI related conviction.Ask a similar question
The other lawyer is right. You need get your restricted license, then see if the DA will drop it to VC 12500.
