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...
Can a county wait 8 years to turn in dui conviction?
I was convicted of a dui in 2007. I just got a letter saying my license has been suspended for this offense. when I called the dmv I was told that the county just turned in my conviction and I have to pay to get my license back. I don't understand how this is possiable when in 2007 I was placed on probation, had my license suspended , was required to go to dui classes, and pay fines to get my license back.
How long was the length of your suspension when you were adjudicated on the DUI. If it was a year, your suspension...
Is the Kehoe test a good defense for a DUI case ?
A friend of mine was charged with suspicion of DUI because of an illegal turn, however it turns out t his attorney was able to get a video footage of a nearby building, and it clearly show that my friend didn't not make an illegal turn. I have been reading on the internet about a KEHOE TEST, and that the burden is on the state to prove that the stop was legitimate . Can his lawyer use the KEHOE test to get any evidence suppressed. I reckon any evidence obtained thereafter would be illegal because the 4th amendment right was violated ,and a judge should make the state prove their case by doing the KEHOE TEST ? Can the prosecutor decide to drop the case at the pre trial conference, if it is determined that the officer lied, and the Kehoe test will prove that the stop was illegal ?
Though I'm not convinced the Kehoe case is the most persuasive authority, your analysis is correct. If your friend did...
Vehicle accident in December. Extricated from car with jaws of life taken to hospital. 4 month later arrested for DUI.
Car accident victim swerved to avoid hitting a deer ending up rolling his car. He had a drink but not an excessive amount. He is a responsible young man (31yo). He needed the jaws of life and taken to the hospital. After 4 months the police came to his door to arrest him for DUI. Why, while a patient in the hospital if they felt he was intoxicated did it take 4 months to reveal this. This occurred in Michigan. Any thoughts or advice on why it took four months ????
If a lab had to analyze his/her blood to see if alcohol was a factor, that would take at least 3 months here in Florida.
