Can someone get BOTH a DUI and a Refusal in Pinellas County, Florida? How is that possible?
In Florida, more specifically Pinellas County, can someone get BOTH a DUI and a Refusal? My friend told me that a couple years ago that he got charge with both a DUI and a Refusal and I just find that hard to believe. He said that he thinks it was an illegal sentence, but there's nothing he can do about it, but I don't think a judge would give someone an 'illegal' sentence. Am I wrong here cause for one I'm very curious how someone can get a DUI if they refused. Isn't the whole point of a Refusal to avoid possibly getting a DUI? Thank you.

I am unable to renew my Florida Driver's License. Do I need a "Traffic" or "DUI" specialist?
I went to renew my Florida driver's license and I was rejected as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts had a suspension on my license. 2 issues: 1. Unpaid excise tax from 1979 (I cleared this up as it was the wrong vehicle/person. and 2. Resolution of a DUI case from that same time frame. Case was closed, I paid all fines and did the required courses. However, I moved to NH and never paid the license renewal fee. NOW, they want court documents re: the outcome. Clerk says documents are not available. I am willing to pay whatever they want, but I can't get anyone off the dime. Florida will not renew until Massachusetts clears the issue and I pay the "fee". This issue appears to date back 30+ years.
Difficult situation. Most courts have their older file on microfich (sic). If this is the case, you should be able to...

I received a DUI First offense in Wisconsin and as part of the offense I need to take a DUI course. I moved to Pinellas County near Saint Petersburg, FL. They are requesting I bring in the ticket, Order for taking the course and all other information pertaining to the DUI.
