I've been told by the public defender that the minimum is 10 days with averages 30-90 days on a second offense. Although I feel that the case is weak, I don't know if I can risk a trial and get even more time. My question... Are there alternatives to jail that will allow me to continue working and taking care of my child? I've heard of something called operation payback. Is that something only on weekends or would i be able to set up days that would work for me? Thanks in advance
Yes there are alternatives. The court and prosecutor can accept a qualified alcohol rehab facility in lieu of jail. Ask...
What do I do if police report contains lies and inconsistancies and feel I was not given chance to prove my innocence? DUI, FL.
I had not been drinking or using drugs. After being arrested for DUI in Florida I blew 0.00, 0.00 and had no problem taking requested urine test. Was briefly told about implied consent. I was given 3 minutes tops to give sample. Requested water twice. Persistently said I do not refuse. That I would not sign anything saying I refused. Police report contains a made up scenario making it seem like I flat out refused. Report also says I was sweating excessively and eyes were too squinty to tell if they were red or watery. I have no ac, have always been an excessive sweater, and have hot air blowing up from under dash. Congenital Ptosis in both eyes which causes drooping, which I told officer. I am more than 60lbs overweight. I don't have a lot of money. Thank you.
The facts appear to be in your favor. Do you know whether your stop, arrest and was on video? Often, a good video can...
Arrested for DUI 10/25, and having no alcohol or intoxicating substances in me-how do I shoot for reckless driving
I have multiple medical issues and having not had ANY real sleep for five days prior to this incident, I did look tired-because I was. Was I drunk/intoxicated?-No, but I did look very tired. A good Samaritan observed me swerving(but did NOT observe the car that cut me off) and called the police saying he spotted a "drunk driver" I REQUESTED multiple breathalyzer tests and due to my physical deformities, canNOT stand on1 leg at ANY time.
You need to hire a lawyer asap! They will be your best chance to get the case reduced or completely dismissed. There...

Your question is a train wreck. I've been practicing criminal defense litigation in FL for 22+ years and have no clue...
I got my first and only criminal charge, a dui, last year. I had 1 year to complete all the conditions of probation, which I did most of- the court fees, the fines, dui school, alcohol counseling, etc. The only one I was unable to do was my 50 hours of community service, due to breaking a vertebrae in my spine a few months ago, and I really couldnt be of use to any facility due to my physical limitations. Now Im about to have my probation terminated and it looks like ill be violating probation. Does this automatically mean when I finally wind up in front of the judge, that ill be going to jail for the 6 months, or do they give you some kind of credit for the other 90% you've done and maybe give you an extention? If i were physically able to complete this, I would have.
I recommend that you proactively address this issue & not wait until you are violated to see what the judge will do....
I got my first DUI about a week ago for sleeping in my parked car on the drivers side with the keys in the ignition. I got my hardship license and signed up for a DUI class but I just want to know if it would be best to get a lawyer. My intention was not to hurt anyone, and I did not know that was against the law. I go to court December 17, 2013 but I just want this all to go away sooner or later.
got a second dui 10 years later what are my fines and a ticket for leaving the scene of accident property damage
Your fines and fees can vary based on several factors. Did you take a breath test and if so, was the result over a 0....
