Port St. Joe Law

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....
I had a very bad night I don't do drugs or anything like that I just messed up and had a drink is there any possible way to get my license back without having it suspended I really need it to go to work and school
There's a couple of possible things in play here, and your question doesn't really give us a lot to work with: A...
I got a DUI in Ohio October 1997. Came back to Florida before my trial and my license was subsequently suspended. In 2000 I flew up to Ohio and paid a fine and a reinstatement fee, then returned to Florida. In 2011 I get a call from Barberton Municipal Courts saying I had a bench warrant. I told them I took care of the DUI in 2000 and they said I only took care of the state of Ohio and not the city of Barberton. I fly back up to Ohio in Jan. 2015 go before the Judge and plead guilty. He has me do a three day program and suspends my license but retro-acted the suspension back to 1997 . I come back to Florida get my license back. Done right? No. Got a letter today from Florida saying my license is suspended for 6 months. How can they do this for something that did not happen here? Thanks,
Florida does not allow nun pro tunc suspensions. That means suspension for six months started Jan 2015. Good luck.
I was convicted of first dui in May of 2011. My name was misspelt on my court documents and I just got arrested on 2nd dui on February 2015. Is my first conviction going to show up with the court system or will it show up with only the dmv. My 2nd arrest ticket shows first offense.
More than likely YES. The reason is that since you had a prior "encounter" with law enforcement you now have a DOC...
I was charged with a dui in my own yard with the vehicle off but the keys were in the ignition and i was sitting in the driver's seat. My 2 year old son was not in the vehicle but eyewitnesses told the officer that i arrived there with my son not in a car seat. But the officer did not witness this for himself.
You can be charged with both crimes. Whether the state can prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt at a trial, that is...
The details of dui I got the dui and blew but I blew double the limit is there a possibility of getting it reduced or anything if I get a lawyer?
It is hard to say with these limited facts. Of course there are many ways to defend a DUI and it is very important that...
I have a previous DUI Arrest that was brought down to a reckless. Now I am in pre-trial for a second DUI arrest that my attorney was able to get a plea bargain of DUI 1 with the minimums. Would there make a huge difference to the bar if I took the plea and get convicted or should I risk a trial and a higher punishment with possible jail time. The trial can go either way according to my attorney?
You have an attorney, ask him. You might also want to contact an attorney who regularly represents people before the...
