I've met with an atty for free advise....knowing that he'd want me to hire him. He went so far as to say that my mug shot would effect my case. He stated that he could reduce my charges to reckless driving, as I did not take the Breathalyzer. Family feels as though this is all a game to get me to hire him, and that I'm going to face what I'm going to face regardless of an atty. Can I plea down with my prosecutor on my own? I'm unemployed, and he wants 3G to take my case. Am I wasting my time trying to borrow the money? I just feel as though I'm getting "sold" a bill of goods here. I would appreciate your candor in this. It would be a miracle if I could keep this charge off of my record, but I'm just not convinced. Thank you in advance.
I was a public defender in Pinellas County and tried a lot of DUIs there. Ultimately, it is very difficult to get a...
- Arrested for DUI (no other charges).
- No prior DUI arrests.
- Pulled over because off-duty dispatcher called in noting I did not maintain a single lane. Police then followed me and noted I did not use a turn signal.
- Failed field sobriety test ( I thought I did well and was polite throughout).
- Refused breath test (actually, didn't blow sufficient volume; I offered to continue trying, officer refused to allow me to do so).
A Reckless Driving is certainly better than a DUI especially if you can get what is called a withhold of adjudication....
I was arrested on May 10, 2013 for DUI. My blood alcohol level was 0.0000 and they requested a urine sample. Which I agreed without any doubt. They are under the impression that it is due to drugs. I do not do illegal drugs, I only take prescription drugs. These prescriptions are prescirbed to me, and where taken roughly around 2 am. I was arrested after 1:30pm. I have a court date May 28th and would like to know what the results were. I am not sure a blood test was performed. They only pricked my finger.
Urine samples are sent from the arresting law enforcement agency to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for...

A close friend of mine violated probation today by missing his court time, he relied on transport from me in which I was unable to do it so he walked and ended up appearing 2 hours late. A bench warrant had already been processed so he turned him self in, in hopes the judge would go easier on him. This is his first arrest(they did not arrest him at the time of the accident he was just taken to the hospital where they found benzodiazepine's in his system therefore he was charged with a DUI.) he went to court a few weeks ago they ordered 50 hours of community service to complete in a years time I believe and of course all sorts of court fines and what not he did not have the money for the drug test he had to take recently for probation nor any fines but he did complete some community servi
It really depends on the judge. If he hasn't paid any of the fines, or done anything else, and he has such a financial...
