I'm trying to find out what the worst case scenario would be at court. The charges are DUI and property damage. He refused to take a breathalyzer and was arrested. Spent twenty-eight hours in jail. He has court in a couple weeks. Just want to know what's the worst that can happen, what will likely happen.
A DUI with a crash would normally have the prosecutor seek jail time. Don't simply focus on the worst case scenario....
I got a DUI, was ordered to pre-trial services and began substance abuse counseling. My BAC was 0.185, can I avoid jail?
I got a DUI, was ordered to pre-trial services and began substance abuse counseling. My BAC was 0.185, an arraignment is set. I have not been able to obtain much of any information on these things aside from the charges and the arraignment date but I did get a public defender since I cannot afford a lawyer. Since I have not been able to obtain much information I wanted to try this out for an answer to a general question.
You should talk with your public defender as they are in the best position to answer your questions because they know...
If you are alleged to be innocent until proven guilty, how is it legally possible to charge a refusal for breathalyzer?
Has any lawyer argued that implied consent laws are illegal. For example, if you let an officer in your house, at any time you can tell the officers that you changed your mind and to get out.
The Implied Consent laws have sustained numerous challenges. If that's your best argument, you'll need to go back to...
I have 2 DUIs 15 years apart. About to be sentenced. Is there a chance of the flhsmv giving me a single hardship for work? Is it legally possible? I have read this law multiple times and I don't see where I can't, but I have been told I can't. http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0300-0399/0322/Sections/0322.27.html
You cannot get a hardship for one year. You will also have to install ignition interlock.
Me and my boyfriend were in a car accident. (Yes, I know he needs a lawyer. We're trying to find one. Any of you in this area? LOL) I was drunk, he was the dd. He hit someone head on. No injuries. The county cops and ambulance came. We were told that we had to wait on Florida Highway Patrol. Five hours later Florida High Patrol shows up. He was asleep in the car at this time. He asked him to do a field sobriety test, he had an attitude with the trooper and refused a breathalyzer. He arrested him, without reading him his rights. They held him in jail for twenty eight hours. He's now being charged with property damage and a DUI. They also neglected to tell him that he had ten days after to file about his license or whatever.
There is no set amount of time, but law enforcement can only detain you for a "reasonable" period of time to conduct a...
I am on a year probation for dui and would terminate on the 4th of this month. I have finished all other obligations and fees except community service and my final reporting date is the eleventh. Just wondering what I will be facing.
Unless you have a documented, medical reason for not completing community service, you are most likely going to see...
I have already spent 4 days in jail. Bond has been set but don't have the $ to pay it.
You will get bounced out of diversion. You are doing the jail time now it sounds like. Most likely your bond on the...
