My daughter was arrested the end of May 2014 for DUI and Dui child endangering because her son was in the car when she was pulled over. She has been in jail since that time as we have not bailed her out. She still has not had an appearance before the judge for either arraignment or indictment. Isn't she supposed to have her preliminary hearing within a few days of being arrested? She's using a public defender and it's hard to get hold of him to find out the status of her court date.
This instance illustrates why a public defender may not be the best choice. Retain an attorney who has time to talk...
We have "joint" custody, 49/51 us being 49. The child does not even reside with their mother, he is living with his grandmother while his mother is living in and out of hotels/apartments/couch hopping. She (ex wife) is an alcoholic who has received 4 DUI's in 10 years, 2 of those in the last 5. My step son is living in an environment that is not safe, secure, nor well structured. Her court date is sometime this month. Can you please help me understand what I need to do to pursue this rapidly? Thank you.

Was pulled over after making a left turn and was told I drove over the double yellow line while turning. The car I was driving had no power steering and I was following a gps in a non familiar area. Was asked if I had been drinking which I was earlier that evening. Then was asked to do a FST. I'm about 60 lbs overweight and was a nervous wreck. I bonded out of jail. No blood tests and completely cooperated.
You need to hire a lawyer, and fight this. If you're over 21 years old you have an excellent case to fight.
I was arrested in Florida for a DUI back in April 2013. I did have my Georgia Lisc on me because I am a resident of Georgia: I was only visiting , however when arrested they did not put the DUI on my Georgia Lisc., instead they slammed the DUI on an old EXPIRED NON EXISTENT Floirda lisc., I had many years ago when I lived there. Since then I have moved to Georgia over 6 years ago where I am and have been a resident. I am trying to get my hardship lisc., but because it's on a lsc that doesn't exsist this is complicating matters. Hope this makes sense and any help would be appreciated.
You should hire a lawyer in Florida to help you straighten out the licence issue there and take care of the DUI.
