My husband will be charged shortly in his 2nd DUI arrest, what can I expect?
The person in question was non-responsive and taken to the local hospital for emergency treatment. The vehicle he was in was towed and no one was notified.

Question on how to read a Florida dui citation ?
It has the following phrases : *Yes or no to fatal injury (self explanatory) *Yes or no to serious bodily injury (self explanatory) *Yes or no to injury to another.. Does this mean did you cause a minor injury to another person? If no is answered on all 3 questions does this mean the police documented no injuries? Do they determine injuries by asking all participants in an accident and by asking paramedics?
This is not a slip and fall question. Moving it over to DUi/DWI for better answers.
Dui reinstatement
I got a dui March 4th 2016, found my dui from 23 years ago in MN so was charged with a 2nd dui. Was sentenced to 30 days weekend jail, violated, did 30, on probation for a year violated and sentenced to 160 days probation revoked. ( not that it matters to this case but have been sober since September :)) did my time and my suspension of my license will be up in a couple of months. I know I have to take the dui classes, dui insurance for 3 years, and interlock for 1 year. I am making payments on my fine but heard I can't get my license back till I pay all of it. I paid the $125 fee for not having insurance (I was incarcerated) anything else I have to do to get reinstated? I live in collier county Florida
All of those conditions of probation were likely reduced to a lien against your license. If so, until you complete...
What type of penalties for first time dui with property damage in Florida and should I get an dui attorney ?
I have never had a dui or any criminal record before. I got into an accident where 2 other cars were damaged. Total of 12000 property damage. I have great insurance that will easily pay for all of the property damage I caused. No one was hurt. I was arrested for a dui. Bac result was. 179. I'm in Florida. What type of penalties am I looking at and should I get a dui lawyer? I know jail time is possible even for regular non damage duis but is it likely?
You should not focus on the penalties, and you should indeed hire an attorney who practices DUI defense.
