Q: Got a "Notice to Appear" copy of citation @ DUI arrest that's illegible and almost blank. That legal?
A: legal but not helpful.
we encounter that all the time and have to call the police, DA or court for confirmation of dates.
A: If you received it from the officer or from the government, it's legal, why wouldn't it be? You should prepare to appear in court as provided on the notice or hire a DUI defense lawyer. You should also be aware that you have 10 days from the date of arrest to request a DMV hearing to challenge the suspension.
