My question involves criminal law for the state of: CA.
I've searched through the threads and unable to find something similar.
I am on formal probation for a plead to a felony count for a non DUI related charge. I was arrested for DUI, took the breathalyzer with a .10/.11 per the officer, he said he was going to show me but didn't, served my time in jail for my probation violation, and I have to go court for my DUI charge soon. I did not get into an accident, just pulled over on the highway, and cooperated with them like a baby. My probation conditions did not include anything alcohol related, my question is will my DUI charge be treated as a typical 1st offense? Will my previous felony plea and current formal probation condition result in a more severe punishment?
I know the law now is much different than before; what is the normal punishment for something like this? I know I have to go to a DMV hearing for my license suspension and to request a restricted so I can drive to work. How long do they usually suspend your license? What are my chances to get a restricted license so I can get to work?
I'm spinning my heels worrying about what will happen. If anyone can shed some light I will deeply appreciated.
