Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Greetings! I am happy to help you on this question. I am very sorry to hear about your DUI. Just out of curiousity, why did you plead guilty to a DUI if you did not know the Urine results?
Generally, as you know, there is a minimum of a six month suspension for a DUI. It is my understanding that the "good points" you may have previously earned "may or may not" be offset.
How confidential is this?
What determines "may or may not"
Just so you know, there is NO attorney/client privilege in this chat so please disregard the previous question if you feel you may divulge too much information. Frankly, I am not sure what you discussed with your lawyer, but if I can read between the lines it sounds like there may be a good reason why you pleaded before.
It is my understanding that if you are charged with a DUI, that it is in the "discretion" of the DMV to offset your points, rather than multiple speeding tickets.
The reason being is because a DUI is a traffic crime, where speeding is more akin to a "civil" infraction. Does that make sense?
