Hi all, I'm young 19 but, am going through the dui process now. I was arrested and spent the night in jail on the 8th of this month.
I haven't even went to court. I have asked God for forgive me but, I can't stop beating myself about it. I'm in college and have a geat job. I was suppose to be moving to a 4 year school this summer and getting a house with an old friend. I was going to be able to transfer my job so I thought I was set. Not to mention that I am good with my money and should of had well over 5k in the bank with no car payment to make the move nice. I have not had any alcohol since the day of my arrest. I have vowed to give it up till I'm of legal drinking age and by then I may decide I'm better off.
For the last two weeks I have dreamed more than ever They all involved alcohol.
I have been a binge drinker since If I make it a month then that will for sure be the longest I have been sober in nearly 3 years. I have no problem with paying fines and attending classes but the losing of the license is another thing. The reality is sitting in I have researched and researched and have found no hope.

It's going to hurt. You're going to be embarrased and ashamed and your reputation will hit dirt for a while. But your honesty and commitment to stay sober will eventually bring you back up in the eyes of those around you. Be truly repentant. Some times the court system allows for the possiblity of being able to drive to and from work I don't agree with this rule, as I've only ever seen if cause more trouble than good, but we have to live with the consequences of our actions No matter what happens, I think that you can pull this back from the ground floor if you return to God and stick by His side.
When all is said and done, he'll pull you up by your boot straps and clean the floor for you. The officer may imply that agreeing to take these tests will make things easier for you. The truth is, the results of these tests rarely prove your innocence and are most often used to build a case against you. For this reason, it is arguably best to politely decline to take them I say "arguably" only because a refusal will likely lead to an arrest.

If, after you have taken or refused to take the PAS and FST, the officer decides that there is probable cause to believe you are guilty of a crime, you will be arrested and taken to the police station to be booked and to undergo a chemical test. California DUI laws include two main sections that you could be charged under:. If you refuse to submit to a chemical test after being arrested, the DMV will seek to suspend your license for at least one full year. If there are no aggravated circumstances around your arrest, such as an accident resulting in death or serious injury , you will likely be released after approximately four hours and the posting of bail, if required.
The court determines the criminal penalties, and the DMV determines whether or not the motorist should retain driving privileges.
After your arrest, you have 10 days to request a DMV administrative hearing to avoid an automatic driver's license suspension at the end of 30 days. During your hearing, you can represent yourself, or you can be represented by private counsel. Unlike the court proceeding, the DMV does not appoint a public defender for you even if you are qualified based on low income. Your first appearance in court is known as the arraignment.
During the arraignment, the prosecution lodges a criminal complaint, and the defendant enters a plea of guilty, not guilty, or no-contest. Sometimes, entry of a plea is postponed for strategic reasons. After the arraignment, the next court appearance is typically the pre-trial settlement conference hearing.
