What are some examples of DUI diversion community service ?
A friend of mine has a DUI and may go the pre trail diversion route, and isn't sure what community service she will have to do. It is obviously working for free, but can she choose places like Habitat for Humanity ,Food For the Poor etc, or is it like cleaning of the street and public parks like what prisoners do ? Can she opt to do it before her limited license expires. If it expires she will not be able to drive herself to community service . Is doing this ahead of time good for the judges or prosecutors ?
Most courts and probation departments have an approved list of community service providers. Call the court and find...
What are the chances of a DUI case getting nolle prosequi a the Pre Trial Conference ?
I have a DUI case pending and I was offered Pre Trial Diversion and my attorney has informed me that the cop lied and wrote some untruthful facts on the affidavit which her evidence will show a different story. The lawyer has made a motion to dismiss based on her evidence and if I want to fight it I will forfeit the PTD option, since the prosecutor will have to defend the motion. This is unfair because I don't want to lose at trial because I was told the cop can try to change his facts even though he wrote an affidavit . I think the State Attorney in FL scares people into taking a PTD contract. I say scare because its a sure thing for me in terms of Nolle Prosequi and money for them. Why do judges not throw out the case on the day of the PTC if the motions to suppress and evidence is good?
You need to talk to your lawyer about this. In every litigation you need to choose between a compromise, which may mean...
Can I get 6 months of time for my first DUI with no accident or prior records ?
The officer claimed that I did not stop , but there was no stop sign at the movie theater, that I exited. Would the stop sign issue be an illegal stop and will any evidence gathered after be thrown out, thus leading to a dismissal of my DUI case ?
There's a U.S. Supreme Court case, Kehoe, which places the burden in the State to establish that an actual traffic...

You can ask for a dismissal, but the records may be there when you go to the hearing. If driving is important to you...
Can a 8 year old DUI conviction (plead no contest), be appealed?
Hello, I am trying to get some information on an old DUI case I had back in 2007. I plead no contest to the DUI based off my lawyers recommendation. Unfortunately, 2 years ago I was arrested and accused of theft... luckily, that case was dropped and went to "nolle prosequi". Which is great, however the arrest is still on my record and shows up on internet pages. I filed to expunge the arrest of theft, but it was denied because of my DUI in 2007. I was told by my lawyer that I should look into an appeals lawyer, that could potentially research my case back in 2007 and potentially find something that would remove it from my record so I can pursue expungement of the theft arrest. She said that chances are the court will not want to fight it and just throw it out because it is so old.
There is no procedural mechanism to re-open an 8 year old DUI now. The time for direct appeal is over as well as any...

I believe there are three approved IID providers in Florida. It may be time to switch to a more reliable one. I would...
