Q: Got DUI in CA moved to TX month later. Told not to show in CA court and would be guilty. Penalty would move 2 TX though.
Would it be better to show up in CA court and plead not guilty there or just "plead guilty" by not showing and have CA state transfer the penalties to Texas. That was what they had said. Was going to please guilty either way.
A: You should consult with a CA attorney, whether one-on-one or on a forum like this. Texas attorneys are not usually in a position to advise you well on whether one choice is better than another for a CA case. There are many fine attorneys in CA for this kind of case.
