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...
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...
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...
My son has been spending $60/week on drug and alcohol counseling and the counselor keeps adding required sessions. He has tested negative on every drug test for the past year except the last one last week. He declined to take because he knew he would fail for marijuana. He only had two sessions left and now the counselor is telling him he will have to start the 12 week treatment all over again. Feels like a never ending vicious cycle even though I know he screwed up.. He was convicted of DUI with serious bodily injury on Dec. 29, 2012. And because of a probation violation (driving on a suspended license) he is not able to get his license back until 2015 anyways. Just curious if there is any type of statute for this if he does not finish and waits it out...if that is even option? Thx
the State gave your son a 2nd chance, and it appears that your son has violated his probation. There is no statute...
i was in Panama City Beach on spring break and got pulled over picking my friend up from a club and still had alcohol in my system and received a DUI. I'm from Minnesota and i've heard that some states don't transfer the DUI over and i wouldn't lose my license is that true?
Florida, like most other states in the country, is part of the Drivers License Compact. Under this compact, all member...
I want to hire new counsel due to the fact that I believe he hasn't done his job to his best abilities. So many stones were unturned during this whole process which has been ongoing for four years now and I'm now losing confidence. If I do I fact hire a new attorney would the judge rehear the motion to suppress the blood since there were no signs of impairment from the paramedics, doctors, or officers? When the blood was drawn there was no notification a death had occurred and no warrant. I need help and I need it fast with someone who has tried Dui manslaughter cases (which my current attorney has but hasn't been really successful) I believe he is going through personal issues and is not devoting his time towards something that can ruin my entire life.
You have the absolute right to hire new counsel and fire your current attorney for any reason. You should, however,...
the state of MI denied reinstatement because I take too many meds, didn't follow procedures, which I did but my attorney put my case on the back-burner, I believe, because I moved to FL. she messed up the first hearing, which I don t' want to get into right now. she ignored my case for over 2 years. can I get a hardship license in FL? can I get one in CO if I move there for 90 days. I am slightly disabled with a heart condition and back pain issues. I need to see many doctors on a monthly basis. it's been over 6 years and I need to drive and become independent. I'm 54.
The state of Florida will not allow you to get a drivers license until you clear up any revocations in your home state....
