Question: Can an under-age 23152 DUI in Van Nuys Court revoke my permanent residentship?

Generally speaking, first offense DUI’s (without injury), by themselves, would not revoke your permanent residentship status. By law, the potential penalty for a first offense VC 23152 DUI can include heavy fines up to $1,000 plus penalty assessments, up to 6 months in jail, and up to a 9 month alcohol program, amoungst other potential penalties (plus restitution if you caused property damage). Based on what you posted below (no injuries), a DUI defense attorney should be able to minimize consequences of a DUI conviction, and potentially get the DUI charge dismissed depending various factors. I would highly recommend consulting a DUI Defense attorney to discuss your case in more detail.
