Odessa Law

In July of 2002 I lost my 22 year old daughter to an alcohol related accident that would change my life for ever. Up until that point in my life I had unsuccessfully tried to control my drinking for 30 years. I placed myself into rehab in Aug of 2002. Last month by the grace of God and the Fellowship of AA I had the honors of celebrating 11 years of sobriety!!! I have numerous people that are willing to write letters in my behalf to support the fact that i have been clean since rehab. My psychiatrist from rehab whom I am still I contact with told me that he would write a letter also. My question is does it make sense to file for a Governor Pardon in an attempt to have my driving privileges restored. I babysit my grand children and need to drive to get the to and from school, doctors...

I received my first DUI in June 2008. I had my driving privileges fully restored in August of 2009. I received a 2nd DUI in Feb 2010. My license was suspended for a period of 5 years. I have less than 2 years to go on the suspension. Am I eligible for any type of license or hearing prior to Feb 2015?

When I look on the county sheriff web site under his SS number, I find the adjudication withheld in both the juvenile and adult records. I always thought that as a juvenile, your records were sealed. The juvenile offense was a sham offense. He did not participate in the crime, but because, 12 hours later, he was in the proximity of the stolen merchandise, he was judged as guilty as the perpetrators of the crime and was given juvenile sanctions, adjudication withheld. The other offense, was a plea bargain. What do we have to do in this situation to get this stuff expunged from his record so he can get a job in the future?
Withhold of adjudication means the judge took the plea but declined to enter a conviction on the record. Theoretically,...

My First DUI case will come to an end this week and most probably i will get a suspension on my license. I will go to DMV and get a restricted license(30 days to work and home). In the mean time, I am moving out to Florida permanently in 2 to 3 weeks. There is grace period of 30 days in Florida where you can drive with your previous states license. So, Will I be able to drive in Florida with my CA restricted license as well ? I enquired with florida DMV and they said I cannot get a restricted license in Florida with an out of state hardship on license. So I was wondering if I wait it out and drive the full 30 days with CA restricted license and then when the restriction is done then go to a DMV get a full license in Florida.
The restricted ca. license can be used for thirty days until you can get the restriction lifted and gain a florida dl....
I will have court it early july about a dui charge in Tampa, Florida. My BAC test was 0.108 and I'm under 21 yo. There was no accident or any damage from this, not even speeding. But penalties are worse because I am a new driver and under 21 according to my lawyer. I am simply asking about the worst case scenario, not actually a prediction or something like that, I know this would be impossible. But according to your experiences, what is the worst-case scenario on similar court cases? Large fines? Suspension of license for years? Time in jail? Please answer. Thank you in advance for your help!

If I get a convicted of a Refusal in Virginia, what does Florida do when they find out? I have a FL license. What if I get convicted of a DWI in VA, what does FL law do? I am trying to decide how to approach my case. Thank you
Florida will suspend your license. The Interstate Compact dictates that all member states comply with the other states'...
