I was arrested for DUI. But there was some problems with the initial stop. Following is the report of the officer for the initial stop, I observed the defendant operating a Nissan armada at Some state road and some street. At this point I was behind the vehicle west bound on state road, when the driver abruptly applied his brakes and after slowing to a stop began a three point turn in the middle of the state road. After turning around the vehicle abruptly sped on the state road, at which time I attempted to stop the vehicle. Can anyone give their views on my chances of winning this motion to suppress?
A lot more information would be needed to give a fair estimation as too your chances. Consult with an experienced DUI...
The first time, he was arrested on site, and spent one week in jail waiting for court. He had fines to pay and time served. This time since he only received a ticket, he doesnt believe he is looking at jail time at all. I thought if you never got your license back from dui, and got a ticket for driving on suspended license there is mandatory jail time. Side note, his probation has terminated(he completed it before this event). I was wondering is he looking at jail, or more probation, or is he right that a ticket is just a ticket? Thank you for the help.
Very difficult to answer. He is not facing mandatory jail time. Whatever he is facing will be based on the attitude...
I had been caught for first time DUI few months back in Pasco county, FL. I hired a DUI lawyer for that. My BAC came as .069 and urine test also clean. I did not do very good in the FST s as per the report but I am from a non English speaking country had some problems understanding the directions. No accidents no injury. Prosecution has offered to reduce it to reckless driving but following is the deal they have offered, 1. 12 months probation 2. 6 months DL suspension 3. 50 hours community service 4. 10 days vehicle immobilization 5. DUI school 6. Victim panel Should I accept this or is this too much?
I would highly suggest you follow your attorney's advice on this one. First blush is some of it is a little steep but...
He had already received a ticket, for driving on suspended license, following his dui. Instead of jail time, he was told he was facing week in jail, they put him on probation. He told his officer on his next visit and was told he will violate him at the end of the month and issue a warrant for his arrest. I was wondering how much jail time is typical for violating probation, and also is jail time necessary for getting 2 tickets for driving on suspended license after a dui. Thank you in advance.
He can get up to 6 months county jail on the DUI charge, up to 60 days on the 1st Suspended License Charge (assuming it...
Military police found an empty can on passenger side while going back to the base. I refused to blow and let them know that I just gave a civilian a ride home in Tennessee were passengers are allowed to drink.I didn't realize that he stuck can under seat. I later summited to a blood alcohol test.I was prepared and willing tourniquet on arm when the person got a phone call and left without taking my blood. I was then let go from the Army under honorable conditions for disobeying a direct order to blow. Now back home to Florida and the military turned over the case to a civil court charging me with a DUI in Kentucky. Court date February 5th. I was a combat medic having still my EMT Paramedic license. I can't get a job on my field if I have a DUI! Help Please!!!!!
You will need an attorney that is licensed in the state of KY. There may be an attorney that lives in Florida and is...
I ended up leaving Georgia and moving back to Vermont without taking care of this issue, since then i found out that there is a bench warrant in the state of Georgia for me; I have not had a license since then. It is now 2014 and I have recently moved to Florida from Vermont, my Vermont ID has expired and I need to get a Florida state ID. Is there any chance of this issue surfacing at the Florida DMV while applying for a state ID and could I be arrested while doing so?
The prior DUI will most definitely "surface" at the FL DMV. It's unlikely you will be arrested, but if you have an...
Being a felon prevents me from serving on a jury, many jobs, travel out of country, etc. Is there any way the felon can be adjudicated from my record or reduced to a misdemeanor? I have had no more offenses of any kind and am a RN. I have never driven since my arrest in 2007.
After probation and all of your classes and treatment are completed, you should have an attorney go to the prosecutor...
