In Illinois, and Im pretty sure across the Nation upon your 3rd DUI the state will charge you with a Felony or if you get 2 DUIs within a one or 2 year period.
They changed the law a few years back DUI convictions stay on your record for life now. It used to be only 10 years.
My friend received a 1 year Prison sentence for driving while on a suspended license because of DUI conviction.
Do people get deported for misdemeanors?
Ive never heard of anybody being deported on a misdemeanor.
Deportation cases in California usually pertain to felony cases
getting deported that did not have a previous record or any other charges besides that first DUI?
How long ago was it?
This person definitely needs an attorney. I hope he didnt blow into the machine, that would make it practically impossible for your lawyer to get you off.
