I was arrested for a Dui (23152 A) at a check point in pomona. I was released 4 hours after arrest, Now I have a court date for Dui. My problem is that I am an illegal alien, and I know I might face deportation if convicted of the charge. I am very scared because I don't want to leave my family alone.I have never had Run inns with police before, I have been living in the USA for 12 years and have no criminal record! What can I do? is it even worth getting a lawyer about this. Or is this a dead end street for me? Is there really a way out of this? Please give me a straight answer. Could I be deported if I am convicted, How can I go to get this DUI behind me. I know I need to get a lawyer but is there any hope? I am a good individual that made a dire mistake and now my hole life is about to be affected. Please Help me.
I have an international license that they didn't accept. I did have insurance at the time of arrest. They made me do a sobriety test and a blood sample. I didn't know better and agreed to this.
