DUI and Driving with a suspended license in Glendale Court

DUI and Driving with a suspended license in Glendale Court

Question: What type of sentencing for a DUI and driving with a suspended license in Glendale Court?  Also, how do I find out when the court date is for this issue?

Answer:  That depends on many different factors.  What is your drivers license suspended for?  Were you convicted of a DUI previously?  Missed a court date on a traffic ticket?  Didn’t pay child’s support?   The potential penalties for a VC 14601 can depend on why your license is suspended in the first place.

Additionally, are you currently on probation for whatever caused the license to be suspended in the first place?  For example, are you on probation for a DUI?

If your license is suspended based on a DUI, is this a 2nd or 3rd offense DUI?  Were you on probation when arrested for this DUI? Was there an accident involved, and if so, was anyone injured? What were your blood or breath test results, or did you refuse to submit to a test?

As you can see, there are many variables that effect how this case can be assessed.  Once I have more information, I will be able to answer your questions with more specificity. As far as the court hearing, the arraignment date should be listed on the citation she received.

Also, it is important to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of the arrest in order to protect your drivers license. I can assist with that as well.

Call me as soon as possible for a free consultation to discuss your situation in further detail.  Once I have a better understanding of your sitation, I can then discuss potential defenses and mitigating factors that can be used to lessen potential consequences.
