Dale S. Gribow's answer More info is needed to properly evaluate your case. Are you saying you had an arrest in 2008 and case is pending or over? i would need more info to advise you if you should alert DMV. However as a rule i think we should not wake sleeping dogs.......you did nothing wrong, the jail did.
However, it is always a good idea to contact a local attorney that handles these cases in the courthouse to which you are ordered to appear.
In other words, I am in Palm Springs and you don’t...
Alexander Bakhache Perez's answer You should contact a local attorney that handles DUI cases near your area to ask for a free consult and review the facts of your case. The case will depend on how the evidence was obtained and the details regarding the stop and arrest as well as review the procedure and evidence that is in your case (facts)
Talk to an attorney in more detail and call for an apt. Good Luck
Mr. Hudson Thomas Bair's answer Call the police, if the driver was arrested they will have the information you need. You should have "uninsured motorist" coverage which will help you if the other driver is uninsured, there is also a restitution process that may be initiated if the other driver is found guilty of a criminal offense.
Steven McNicholl's answer The DMV is its own separate system from the court and DCSS. You need to contact the DMV to determine the status of your license and reinstate through them. Nothing outside the DMV will automatically reinstate your drivers license.
Mr. Hudson Thomas Bair's answer You should contact a local DUI Defense Attorney to discuss the facts and possible defenses. Many DUI Defense lawyers offer free consultations, if you were sober and did well on the field tests a lawyer should be able to use that to your advantage.
Steven McNicholl's answer By not signing up for the DUI class you are in violation of probation. Many factors will determine if you are taken into custody. It is possible that the District Attorney will reinstate the terms of your probation, meaning the original terms will still be put back in effect. It will largely depend on the facts and circumstances of your case.
Allen C. Ladd's answer You will not be able to travel to the USA with a DUI arrest (even without conviction) within the past 5 years, because you are a public danger. You will need to get clearance from a "panel physician" who is on contract with the US consulate in France. Go to the consulate's website, or go to www.aila.org to look for a US immigration attorney in France, for further guidance. (If you don't find one in France, go to Germany in the listings, there are several I know of who handle this matter.)...
Omid Rejali's answer Did you blow a 0.09 on the PAS device? (Preliminary Alcohol Screening). Why were you pulled over? There are many questions that a qualified attorney would need to speak to you and ask you about to evaluate your case further. It is definitely worth contacting an attorney and speaking with them over the phone as this is not the proper forum to discuss those types of things.
Alexander Bakhache Perez's answer The date the plea was entered into, the latest date, but it is an argument to make, either case you have 3 other DUI's within 10 years - you will need a lot of help to negotiate this or fight the case since the consequences are high for you.
all in the same state and same county for the DUI's. Have few questions to go over feel free to call for a free over the phone consultation.
Mr. Hudson Thomas Bair's answer Your results will vary depending on who your insurance company is and the DMV outcome. If you get a "wet" reckless in court but lose the DMV hearing you will still be required to file an SR-22 which will trigger additional consequences with your insurance company. You should discuss this with both your lawyer and your insurance person.
