Q: I was given a DUI, however I was not operating my vehicle. It was parked at a separate location. Is this lawful?

I was detained by multiple police officers on foot, at a separate location. It doesn't seem right that I could get a DUI when I wasn't even operating a vehicle and never admited to doing so under the influence

You can be "charged" with the crime of DUII regardless of whether at the time of the stop you were driving or not. Being charged with a crime,and being found guilty of a crime are two different things. Since driving is an element of the crime of DUII, you would likely have a very good... Read more »

I already completed a DUII class, and have sr-22 insurance. Am I required to have an IID? The DMV and my parole officer have said no. I just want to be certain. Thank you.

You should have a non-driving ID. If not you make a more complicated process but no.

I don't entirely understand the question, but driving while suspended after a DUI conviction, while on parole, would definitely justify jail time.

Generally if an earlier DUI conviction is going to be used for enhanced punishment, it will be stated on the warrant of arrest. I practice in VA, nor Oregon but here if the earlier conviction is more than 10 years old, it has almost no affect.

It depends on how long ago those DUI convictions were, and whether she satisfied all requirements of the CA court and CA DMV.

answered on Nov 1, 2014

It's not a traffic violation by itself, but swerving within a lane can be used by an officer to support a finding of reasonable suspicion for DUII. Whether or not the stop was lawful will depend on what other factors the officer is using to corroborate his/her belief that the swerving was a... Read more »

It sounds like your driver's license for revoked for life. A "lifetime" revocation means that your driver's license is "permanently" revoked. But, after the passage of time, you may be able to get your license back. A skilled attorney can review your criminal history... Read more »

Q: How long could i go to jail if i got drunk and im 14

answered on Feb 12, 2013

I think it is very unlikely that you would be sentenced to jail time for being drunk at age 14, especially if this is your first run-in with the law. More likely, you might be ordered to do an alcohol education class and some community service.

You may have just mistakenly not received form 2. You should go back to the courtroom you appeared in before and talk to the clerk. They should be able to get you any page you missed.
