I have a Bench warrant for my arrest from Gwinnett County ,Ga DUI 12/17/1994 I did not go to court. I was told to return to Atlanta to stand before the judge and explain why I was not in court ..I live in Tampa Fla ...would it be better if I had lawyer I do not want to be detailed
The short answer is for you to get a lawyer in the place where the court is. They will know the judges and their...
I got pulled over and subjected to field sobriety tests in the state of Florida but refused the breath test. A lawyer told me that I would be eligible for a waiver of a formal hearing if I was enrolled in DUI counterattack without serving 90 days hard time. After doing some more research of my own I found that was untrue and that I would be required to serve the 90 days hard time.
If it is your first DUI then yes, it is possible to avoid the 90 day hard time. This is a relatively new rule through...
I was pulled over and asked to do a series of field sobriety tests. When the officer asked me if I would subject to a breath test, I refused and shortly after I was arrested. I am considering my options and I would like to fight my case and get my license fully reinstated if possible depending on the things they review in the hearing
at the hearing the officer will determine whether you were driving or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle,...
I was pulled over and my officer asked me to perform a series of field sobriety tests. When asked if I would consent to a breath test, I refused. A lawyer told me I could waive my right to a formal review hearing but after doing some research I discovered this could be held against me in court. I just want a second opinion as I am trying to weigh all options of my case.
This is incorrect a waiver of your right to a formal review hearing cannot be used against you in criminal court.
I've already come into contact with law enforcement here, Hillsborough county sheriffs, and they told me the warrant states that it's only for surrounding states. Would I be able to get a job here with this warrant? I'm trying to take care of this, but it's looking like I'm going to have to go back there and do jail time unfortunately.
Get this warrant taken care of. Hire counsel there to find out what will most likely happen.
I was arrested for a dui misdemeanor. After bonding out i was arrested again months later for theft and fraud (felonies). i was able to bond out again without having to see a judge. Can/Will my bond be revoked? If so, will a warrant be issued? Any advise would help, I'm young scarred and very worried. Only one prior to all of this and it was petite theft (misdemeanor).
Yes and Yes are the probable answers. Plus, you could also be charged with committing a crime while out on bond ( a...
I lost my job two months ago and am having trouble just keeping a roof over my families head. I live in FL, any advise? I have asked for an extension but was denied. I have never been in trouble before. From the research I have done online, it is unconstitutional to jail some one for a debt? It seems the state of Florida uses judges to enforce the payment of debts with the threat of jail time!
Very astute observation. However, "fines" such as the kind levied for DUI convictions, are not treated as "debts" for...
