I was convicted of drug charges in one county and I had an DUI in another county. Due to the DUI my liscense were doubled!! Why?
The suspension with the drugs was only two years at first until the DUI and it became double the time!!
Your attorney of record who handled your state cases could explain that to you in detail or any good local defense...
The Florida DIV mailed me a letter on Feb 4th , 2013 revoking my license for one year for a DUI conviction in Virginia .
This conviction supposedly took place on Sept 2 , 1993 . ( Date is not a typing error ) . I have never had a DUI in Virginia or any other state . Virginia sent a Clearance Letter by fax to them yesterday and again today ( again because the DMV gave me a wrong number . Am now being told it may take 10 days . We are assuming that they have the fax . No way to confirm . Whatever happened to due process ? No crime yet I am being punished and the supervisor ( Jeremiah ) could care less . I recently moved back to Fl and don't know the neighbors yet . My wife is still in IL and I am stranded with no drivers license . I know mistakes happen but it is the attitude and lack of expediency when I have been victimized . I have adjudged guilty without arrest , arraignment or conviction and nobody cares .
My goodness. Sorry to hear that you're going through this - I hate when I hear stories like this. The only thing I can...
I passed out in convenience store and was taken to the hospital - no police came with the ambulance? Can I be charged with DUI?
The employees in the convenience store knew that I was driving and they had sold me liquor earlier in the day. No police came to the hospital and the blood drawn there was supposedly tested so see why I had passed out. No one at the hospital mentioned alcohol or driving as my car was still at the store. I had also been taking Nyquil for a few days. I am just nervous the police could still show up???
As you passed out in the store, then no officer can put you behind the wheel of a vehicle so as to charge you wit a DUI....
An atty posted here that a 1st dui (w/o an accident) is consid a 1st deg misd und FL case law. Can someone post the cite? Thx
Rec'd a first time dui. No prop damage or injury. No accident. Statute doesn't classify it as either a 1st or 2nd degree misd. A dui w/prop damage is statutorily a 1st deg misd. I assumed a simple dui was not but an atty posted on here that case law mks it a 1st. Would like to receive the case cite. Thanks much.
While I do not have the case cite your ask for, I can say that the DUI statute is somewhat of a hybrid, highly...
My sister was arrested for a DUI after passing all the field tests. Breath test given later confirmed DUI. Can it be dismissed?
My sister was pulled over for running a toll. In conversation she admitted that she had a drink about 2 hours prior. She did 3 field tests, passed 2 of them and on the 3rd test, it was noted in the report that she had difficulty walking the line because while standing outside the vehicle she was stung by something that made her foot swell twice its normal size. She was unable to stand on the leg much less walk. The cop arrested her anyway. Once she was taken back to the station another cop did the breath test which showed a .13. Since she passed the field tests and the cop noted there was NO smell of alcohol on her breath or impairment (except the white line test), does she have a chance of having the case thrown out for lack of evidence? Or can the breath test be thrown out?
DUI's are time sensitive in that you only have ten (10) days to challenge the suspension of your driving privilege....
I refused a blow test and was issued a ticket my license was suppose to be suspended never was, this was 2 1/2 years ago I was from SC, The ticket was lost by the court system and a case was never filed and I was never charged or arrested. But the ticket info was relayed to the DMV. Now I move to FL and try to get my license changed to FL they (dmv) tell me I need to enroll in a DUI classed or have a cert of completion. My question is how can I get this removed from DMV system since there was never a suspension or a criminal case or dui case and I was not arrested. It is now past the time they can prosecute. Is there a way to have it removed so I can get my FL DL ?
There is no way to remove the requirement. An administrative suspension was generated by the refusal citation which is...
Would it be worth expunging a DUI after it was dismissed? I am 22 years old and just wrapped up the entire DUI process
After receiving my DUI in a couple of years ago, I was admitted into the pre trial diversion program of the state of FL and successfully completed all aspects of it. My DUI case was officially dismissed and closed. Given that I am 22 and I am just beginning my professional career, I was wondering if expunging my record of the DUI right would be worth it. Given that you can only expunge or seal one thing ever. Would it be worth doing it this early in my career or would it not really make a difference when It comes to employment since you nevertheless really know what may happen in the future?
That's a question that you have to answer. If you are ever convicted of any crime ever then you lose your one free...
