Do I have to submit to a breath test?

When you are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, a police officer has several ways of determining whether you are too incapacitated to drive safely. The officer may instruct you to walk a straight line, touch your nose and perform other tasks. They will take notes about whether you appeared to be swerving in your vehicle before you stopped, whether your breath smelled of alcohol, or whether you slurred your words. All of this can and will be held as evidence against you in court. But some of the most compelling evidence comes from a test of your blood alcohol concentration, or BAC.

Bail is often the key to release after arrest

While California residents wait for their opportunity to vote on whether to eliminate the bail system, your loved one may be facing the question of bail at this moment. If you have a family member who was recently arrested and is now awaiting a hearing to determine bail, you may have questions about the process and what you can expect.

Eliminating old convictions under new marijuana law

When California legalized marijuana in 2016, it also provided a pathway for thousands of people to clear marijuana-related criminal convictions from their records. The provision applies to people who were convicted only of certain minor offenses that are no longer considered crimes under the new law, and allows them to retroactively eliminate some convictions and reduce sentences for others.
