I am on dui probation and got arrested sat morning for dui and driving on suspicion license. How long till warrant is issued?
I tried to contact my probation office and left a message. We were driving home and my fiancé said the car was driving odd and she could feel it in the pedals. So she pulled over on a side road and I drove the car to make sure nothing was wrong. There was no traffic anywhere. I came to a stop sign, stopped made a right and saw 3-4 police vehicles on opposite side of the road. I pulled over immediately but realized I was in a turning lane so decided to find a safer place to stop without drawing attention. Before I could, I was being pulled over. Was given a roadside sob test and did perfect (for real) bc I hadn't been drinking for a while and had only had 2 beers. After I was asked to walk towards the cruiser and placed under arrest for the aforementioned. I refused to blow. bailed out now.

Formal administrative hearing, dui in floroda
in florida, if a formal administrative hearing is requested after a dui arrest, does the arresting officer and/or certified breath tester have to show up tp the formal administrative hearing, or will the hearing officers sinply read the arrest report and make a decision? what happens if the officer does not show up, but on paper according tp the arrest report, there was a refusal to blow? does the suspension still stand on those grounds or would it be thrown out based on the arrestibg officers absense?
First, DUI cases - especially the administrative DMV component are complicated and should not be navigated by law...
ADAP or a substance abuse program is mandatory on a DUI offense to get your driving license back.It's separate from court ?DMV
requires this in order to get your license back? Thanks for who ever responds back. Appreciate any advise.
Have you asked DMV ? Call and ask.
Generally speaking--what are some experiences have you had winning dui cases by attacking FSTs credibility
i know this is a too broad area to get any specific insight. I just wanted to hear some stories. What are your experiences defending a DUI that you've actually won by attacking the FSTs ? Won as in acquitted, not jut reduce charges or dismissals. What were some of the points you hit ? Was there any other evidence used against your clients like breath tests or dash cams? Did your clients have witnesses to help defend their seemingly sober disposition before the stop ? Thanks
You are no going to get chapter and verse from me on line as to either my strategies or techniques or accolades or...
How can i go about trying to prove that a dui report has been copied/faked from a previous
i noticed that after a detailed introduction into his encounter with me, at a certain point the report regarding my performance on FSTs become generic, and the writing style changes referring to me thereafter as "the defendant". at certain points, the report no longer refers to me as "he" but uses "they" and "them", and states "At hours, I placed the defendant under arrest, handcuffed and searched them." There is an explicit blank at what time he had placed me under arrest. I was wondering if there was a way i could ask my attorney to pull up other dui reports that would prove that my suspicion is warranted, nitpicking? I have retained counsel and will be meeting with her soon, i just wanted other professional (but not legal) opinions. I am not seeking legal advice.
You bring up good points to discuss with your attorney.
I'am filing a motion to terminate or modify sentence to straight time for my 1st offense DUI. I had 192 days credit on this
charge before being sentenced to 55 mos DOC with this charge and 2 felonies back in 2010.I'm on my 6th month and did DUI school,Victim Impact ,and 50 hrs community service. I did not do ADAP or pay for supervision as my argument is I have no finances and are unemployed just being released from prison. Can you tell me if you think this is the right motion to file and ask the judge to grant this motion?. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
It sounds like you've done quite a bit to comply with your sentence on the DUI. That should count for something with...
