Is alcohol treatment required?
I was convicted for a 2nd DUI and part of the terms of probation was to to complete a level to DUI counter attack course. As part of the registration I went through an evaluation and I was referred to alcohol counseling and treatment. I understand that I need to do the counseling in order to get my license back but it wasn't listed as part of my probation. I have no desire to get my license back right now and with my school and work load I have no time to go through ALL the steps for treatment right now. If I forgo the treatment right now will I still be able to complete my probation?

How to appeal a writ of certiorari?
My driving record is not the best. I don't have any dui's or dwi's but I do have 2 speeding tickets, a crash and a few suspensions because of failed payments on insurance and/or not being able to pay my tickets on time. I recently applied for an hardship license and was denied. After receiving my review, I would like to appeal the decision. The administrator didn't give me the opportunity to better explain myself, she was rude and dismissive. How do I appeal this decision? I was presented with an opportunity for career advancement but the job is in Kissimmee, Florida. I live outside of Apopka in Plymouth, Florida. Please help me. What can I do?

Limitations on DUI arrest?
I was in an accident over 15 years ago in Florida when I was young and stupid after drinking. Was injured and brought to the hospital where they blood tested me and said I had alcohol and benzodiazepine in my system. The Benzodiazepine was there because I believe the bar I was in last I was drugged in my drink by a strange couple that was next to me at the bar. I left because I felt woozy and scared. Regardless, I was in the hospital for over a week. There was never an arrest or a visit from police. Moved out of state after that to recover and never heard anything about it. Have checked warrant databases and such but nothing comes up. Can this still come back to get me or was I extremely lucky in a number of ways?
It's possible that you were very lucky. It's also possible that there is a case floating out there that you haven't...
First, I would like to thank you in advance for any lawyer that takes the time to give me advice on this matter.
2003 my friend was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell. This was her first offense and she pleaded no contest. She ended up with probation, she can't recall if it was for 1 year or 18 months. She then violated probation and was put on drug offender probation for testing positive for marijuana. They gave her 2 years probation and she was given weekly drug tests. She completed the 2 years with no other incidents. A couple years later, she tried to get her charge expunged and was told she couldn't. Recently, I got into a bit of trouble myself and was charged with a DUI. I hired an attorney and was told the only charges that you can't get expunged are violent offenses and a DUI charge. Maybe I misunderstood, but I'm trying to help my friend out and see if there is any way that the charge can be expunged. If she hires and attorney or is there no hope? I know this doesn't make a different but she is a single mom and is missing so many opportunities to better her life because of this. I know it was her fault but i figured asking a professional wouldn't hurt. ANY help is greatly appreciated.
If she was adjudicated guilty of the cocaine possession charge, she will NOT be able to get her case expunged ever. In...
How can you become a trustee when the CO ignores you?
My son had a violation of probation, is 19 and does not have any prior criminal history. It was for possession of marijuana under 20 grams and parafanalia (which was the paper). They put him in for over 3 months and suspended his license for a year when he gets out. The CO's are ignoring him and I had to call to get him medical attention because he filled out 5 forms to see the nurse. Now the CO's are being rude to him because he said something to me, his mom. He has filed the paper to become a trustee and now they are ignoring him. I don't know what I can do to help. He didn't deserve that much time and didn't deserve his license being suspended. He is just 19 and has never been in trouble. Now he's trying to become a trustee to make the time go by and get time off his sentence and they are ignoring him. There has got to be something I can do. I feel my hands are tied literally and they are just going to get away with this.
Unfortunately there is nothing you can do to help you son become a trustee. The decision as to who becomes a trustee...
