Charged with DUI first offense
My brother was charged with DUI first offense, on Friday night. He took the sobriety field test, and he passed it but the officer still arrested him because "he reeked of alcohol" and the officer could "smell it all over his breath". He did not take a breathalyzier. Can he get this dropped since, he passed the sobriety test.
Unfortunately, the State Attorney's Office does not just drop DUIs. Your brother needs to consider retaining a...
My friend was arrested for dui and I was cuffed and jailed overnight to protect myself or others. Is this legal?
I was passenger and did have drinks, but said I would take a cab home. Cops said I was being taken in for the protection of myself or others. I was cuffed and brought to jail. When I got verbally angry at the station because they brought me there, they beat me. I was released in the morning. No arrest was ever made. I did make a complaint on the beating, How long do they have to investigate that?
No, it is not legal. There was no legal basis for your detention, especially if you indicated no intention to operate...
VOP from a DUI/refusal to blow
9.5 hrs b4 trial 4 VOP (failed ETOH test or didn't take DUI class due to finances, which his PO was aware & ok)it occurred to me that my fiance is just going to take jail time if offered to avoid probation as the arrest caused him to lose his job, car, apt & belongings. We haven't spoke because we have no money. I recently moved to GA. Will he be able to change his mind after the trial if I can talk to him? Are there any programs for indigent couples to talk to each other or get canteen???? Is there away to see him via computer? He's in Lee Cnty, FL, I'm in Bartow Cnty, GA. I don't even get to say goodbye to him. Can he make money in there? Can he get out early??? Is there any way I can get a message to him by 1045am?? I'm sorry so lengthy, I'm distraught. Thank u 4 ANY help u can offer.

HELP! I got a DUI and before sentencing had a business license that I thought was supposed to stay in effect...
On my way to work this morning I got pulled over and my license is showing revoked. I looked over my sentencing paperwork and it says nothing about my business license just license revoked for 1 year. What do I do? I know my PO will violate me if I don't really have a license but I thought I did and it was verbally discussed by the judge at sentencing... Is it possible I have a business license and its a clerical mistake? If not, what do I do?
More details are needed sir. BUT, typically IF you has a valid lisence at the time of sentencing , but the judge then...
I was recently arrested for a DUI in Fort Myers, FL (Lee County). Do I qualify for PreTrial/DUI Diversion as a first offender?
I have an very clean record, with my only previous citation coming from a speeding ticket I received 10 years ago. My BAC was below .15 as well. There was no bodily harm caused to anyone, no accident, no damage, anything. Just a stop.
No. The charge of DUI will disqualify you for entry into pre-trial diversion here in Lee County.
Moving to FL from Texas - will Florida count all my priors in TX against me?
Hi, I have 4 DWI's. 1st (misdemeanor) in 1997. Second (misdemeanor) in 2000. Third (misdemeanor) in 2004. And 4th (felony, currently serving 5 yrs probation) in 2011. Hypothetically speaking, lets say I caught a 5th in FL at some point in the future...would FL treat it as a 5th, or would some of my prior DWI's not be counted against me? Thanks.
They would all count, assuming the State could find adequate proof of the prior offenses (court documents, driver's...
