Is there any time that may pass to where the interlock device is no longer required in order to obtain my DL?
in 2008 I was convicted of DUI and have not driven since. I do not own a automobile. I understand the insurance requirements. My conviction was over five years past, I was wondering if there is any grace period after such a lengthy period of time when the requirement may be forgiven.
In order to have your drivers license reinstated, interlock would have to be installed - assuming from your limited...
My husband is serving a 30 day jail sentence for 2nd offense DUI.
He was never arrested. The DUI charges came almost 4 months after the incident. He went to court and received a sentence that included fines, probation, 30 days in jail, and a 5-year license suspension. He was never read his Miranda rights at any time. Is this an issue?
Well, if he was never arrested, likely Miranda wasn't an issue because Miranda is invoked at the time of detention or...
What does a retainer cover?
I have been charged with careless driving and a 2nd DUI, 3 months after the incident occurred. There is no court date assigned, I was told to call thd court. I didn't retain an attorney for the 1st DUI and the public defender was awful! What does a retainer cover and how much is the average retainer?
DUI is an enhanceable offense, meaning that eventually you could face felony charges for what would otherwise be a...
My husband will be charged shortly in his 2nd DUI arrest, what can I expect?
The person in question was non-responsive and taken to the local hospital for emergency treatment. The vehicle he was in was towed and no one was notified. The police officer that responded showed up for an initial interview at the hospital but didn't take any notes. He indicated that there would be an arrest once the hospital has cleared him to be released.
You should contact an attorney because blood cases can cause problems for the state of proper procedures are not...
Speeding Ticket on a Military Base
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....
How Florida deals with out of state revocation of privilege if it is not for DUI or DWI but for 3 speeds in 18 months?
Accordingly to Florida law there is no such thing like revocation for 3 speeding tickets in 18 months period. In my case this will be equal to 12 points in case I loose at all 3 hearings. To my understanding, by Florida law they should simply suspend my license for 30 days because of accumulation of 12 points in one year. Or it doesn't matter? If your privilege becomes revoked somewhere, they do not care by what reason and revoke your license too? Does anybody know?
Florida has reciprocity with most other states. So if your home state suspends your driving privileges then there is a...
Lake County Misdemeanor DUI Probation to begin soon. What type of alcohol Tests are performed? Civil Liberties Violated?
What common alcohol tests are performed by Lake County Florida Probation: Breath? Standard Urine Panel? ETG Urine? Blood? Hair? I have been granted a Special Condition of "Must not Consume or Possess Alcohol during Probation" It has been three months since the 'incident' and I have not had a drop of alcohol, which is not uncommon, drinking is not a priority of mine. The reason for the Alcohol Testing questions is because "I'm a Gosh* darn* American, and if I want to have a couple beers on a Friday night, that's my right" Though to avoid violation of Probation, and to please the local court, I will obey. Thank you for any education you can provide! "Civil liberties are personal guarantees and freedoms that the government cannot abridge, either by law or by judicial interpretation"
Thanks for your comment. We all cherish our liberty and it bothers us all when our liberties are taken away, especially...
