My brother just finished a trial and no evidence was provided. The state didn't have no blood work and the officer didn't perform any field tests on my brother on the night he wrecked his car. He received 5 years of probation and 30 days in jail for this. Is this fair? Can they convict him even though they didn't have any evidence? Also, for the first offense, isn't the punishment to steep? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Also, he wasn't arrested at all but was sent to the hospital; they didn't draw any blood from him.
If the trial has ended, it is obvious he can be charged with the offense. If he received 5 years of probation, then he...
. I've not yet retained an attorney but this isn't my first rodeo. I know you can probably count actual DUI trials on one hand, but if you have seen someone go to trial and lose -- what sentences are typically imposed? I guess the meat of this post is "My plea seems bad enough, is it that much worse to be found guilty of DUI at trial?" Do guilty DUI defendants typically receive just jail time if they endure a trial, or do they get jail time + all the conditions of a plea bargain (probation, car impound, dui school, etc). Or is the Plea Bargain really a great deal considering the slim-to-nill chance at beating the charge in a trial, and the loss of freedom that would lead to job loss. Admin suspension sustained, so DUI School II, anyway--finally"not guilty" trial = reverse DMV ruling?
The severity of your sentence after trial will depend on the judge and any aggravating facts associated with your case....
I have a 13 year clean driving record. This is my first ticket. I know I was not speeding and what to contest this in court. My ticket is for $75 for driving: "unlawful speed at 27 mph in a posted 15 mph zone. The offense charged is F.S.S 316.187. I want to know if I will get points on my license and what does this F.S.S. 316.187 code mean? The officer said he clocked me on a radar. Where can I found that information on the ticket? Also, will I have a chance getting this ticket dismissed in court? Thanks!
316.187 is the statute you are accused of violating. In this case, speeding. You could get points on your license....

If you are taking diversion it is a requirement of the program in Orange county.
I have a Lawyer hired for my first DUI case which was 3 years ago and will go to trial soon as I entered a plea of not guilty recently. Both charges at this point are "1st time offender" charges as well. I'm on the fence about going to trial for this 2nd DUI. I can't go to jail, I have a full time job and a family. Am I facing Jail time? No injuries on either DUI either or accident. First DUI was in broward county, second was in Palm beach.
For a second dui the mandatory minimum jail time is 10 days, but it could be more.

I want to apply for my citizenship and have a 1 DUI conviction on my record. I need 5 years of Good moral character. Some lawyers say you need 5 years after the conviction, other says you can apply even if the DUI occur during your 5 years GMC (because a first simple DUI do not affect your GMC). So if a DUI (1st simple DUI) do not affect the GMC, why wait 5 years after the conviction. Even if you have to prove 5 years clean, why apply after the conviction instead the date of you get arrested. I was arrested in September 2010 and convicted by the court in April 2012. Since September 2010 i never had any problem, i start my own business, volunteer with my local church for 3 years now. So if i do the math (5years GMC) 09/2011 to 09/2016. So when apply? I need also a lawyer to help me. Regards
