Q: I got a dui in Jan still haven't had court. Da office has no record of my citation. What do I need to do.
This is my first offense so I already served more than 60 days of suspended license. The sheriff has not turned the citation to the da office.
This is something that does tend to happen (some places are worse than others). You should hire a lawyer to go over your case with you and try to monitor the case as carefully as possible.
One thing you do not want to do is bring attention to the situation. It is pretty rare that paperwork like this falls through the cracks, but it does happen, and could be very beneficial to your case.
