Legal Answers
9 Questions Answered

Q. Got dui Didn’t complete classes Warrant issued 8 years later caught What will likely happen in court when I show up
A: Best strategy to hire a local attorney who can recall the warrant. Some courts will vacate the class, others may make you complete it now. Either way, probably no significant penalty, if any.
Q. I marsdins my court appointed public defender twice but was denied. What can I say or do he disrespects me.
A: A Marsden motion is where you complain to the court that your free appointed counsel is inadequate. A lawyer who disrespects their client should consider another career, especially one who serves as court-appointed counsel. However, disrespect is not considered in whether the attorney can competently and adequately represent you. Your best solution is to speak with the supervisor of the court-appointed counsel, such as the public defender or alternate defender's office. Many times they will assign a new attorney where a personality change would be beneficial.
Q. Can my DUI case be dismissed if I was not legally arrested. The officer stated on the supplemental/ narrative report I
A: False statements by a peace officer go to the officer's credibility at trial or motion. Assertions that the officer lied in a report can only yield a dismissal of the charges if you fight your case. The prosecutor assigned to file cases will take the officer at their word and file charges. If a warrant was issued, it probably means that you refused that chemical test. If so, you could be facing a one-year or longer hard suspension of your driving privilege. I'd need more information and would like to read the reports before rendering an opinion. It sounds like you need a good DUI attorney or you could be facing serious consequences. I suggest finding the best lawyer for the specific courthouse where your arraignment will be heard, or at least the county. A local lawyer knows the lay of the land. They know the prosecutors and the judges who will decide the outcome of your matter.
