Port St. Joe Law

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...
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....
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....
In the State of Florida, how long can a Blood Sample for a DUI tox screen go unrefrigerated? In the case I'm assisting in, the defendant's blood was inside a hot cop car for approximately two (2) days. If you could also provided a statute or procedure reference, I would appreciate it
Probably only a matter of an hour or so, perhaps a little more, depending upon the facts. Perhaps not even that much.
i was picking up my friend from the bar because he could not drive. i got tagged for erratic driving. i could understand why because my meds were wearing off and i have severe ADHD. i saw the police report and it was purely subjective evidence, and no video evidence was used, other than me going to jail. he also clocked my speed by using the pacing method. the alcohol smell he noted was actually coming from my friend. is there a good chance my case will get thrown out?
Your best chance if getting the case reduced or dropped is to hire a local lawyer to help you. Good luck,
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!
