2nd dui outside of 10 years, first one won dmv hearing but was convicted in court back in 2002. Would this be considered my first dui or second when applying for hardship? Is there any downside if I request a formal review and lose? I know I get a 42 day extension if I request it within 10 days. Have not been in any trouble in 13 years, have bettered my life tremendously, what are the chances of getting this dropped to a wet reckless. I am a single father with no family to help and ex lives in Other state, I am sole provider for my child and need to get to work 22 miles away. Breathalyzer was taken but 4 hours after arrest, is there a possibility of rising bac? Blew .197, I rarely get out but I made horrible choice just looking for anything to save me, no one was hurt, no property damage, very polite to police. Realized after a allergy medication I take reacts bad with alcohol is that a defense? Is sleep driving a defense. What about just begging for mercy from state?
Winning the DMV hearing has no bearing on what happened to the case in court. Since you indicate you were convicted...
DUI Video Evidence was modified, and is missing the first 10+ minutes, a very CONVENIENT block of time to be missing.
Try to keep it simple here: Was pulled over by a friend/coworker and let go with a "Warning, of Observation of Speed". It was 40 degrees with 10+ wind. I was only wearing shorts and a "T-shirt", but I got out of my car to BS with him for a bit. It got cold, blowing warm air into my hands and my legs were shaking, so I said "it's freezing, I'm going to get home, have a safe night, see you at work". At that point his SGT pulls up, says he smells beer, I end up in jail. The police report was made by the initial officer stating he immediately smelled alcohol, and FST requested immediately. Remember he was letting me go!? (Stop laughing) I just saw the body cam video, it begins with me wearing a "jacket", which I requested at time of FST. False Police Report? Body Cam Missing 10+ min?
This is a common allegation, and in the vast majority of cases, it is utterly meaningless. The police don't turn on...
2nd DUI outside of 10+ years in Florida. DL Suspension/BPO?
Read F.S's. E-mailed, Phoned..3 Contradicting answers.
1st DUI was 12 years ago. 2nd DUI, Plead Nolo/Guilty, blew both times. My lawyer told me that I'd get a BPO/Hardship immediately. Criminal Judge placed Special Condition "SUSPENSION of 12 months". FLHSMV website says "REVOCATION", does not state for how long. Difference in TERMINOLOGY?
322.271, F.S. and 322.28, F.S. say B. 2nd DUI offense outside of 5 years refer to 'A'. 'A' states, 180 days to 1 year suspension. Email response from FLHSMV verbatim says "Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, when you have a 2nd DUI offense not within 5 years of the 1st conviction, you are not eligible to apply for a hardship license. You will be eligible to reinstate your license on March 10th, 2016." Sounds like a 3rd DUI, contradiction? Where do I spark the fire to get my BPO? Help plz :)
