i went to arraignment and judge told me to get a lawyer. my license was suspendd about 2 months ago for the DUI...i wanted to know if they suspend my license for 6 months, when does the 6 months run, from when it was actually suspended? or from when I am sentenced and convicted if that happens?

I moved from AL to FL in Sept 2012. I got a DUI in FL with my AL DL in Feb 2013. I hadn't changed my license over yet. I hired a lawyer and had my conviction in August 2012. I lost my license for 12 months in Florida from conviction date, I was eligible for a hardship in November but had to register my car first. I went back to get my hardship in January 2014 but I was told I was placed on the NDR by AL and couldn't get my license until Sept. 2014. I contacted Alabama DMV today (4/3/14), and the person I spoke to told me they could credit me the 6-7 weeks to get my license back but I would need someone to fax them an official statement saying when my license was taken away. My license was taken away when I got the DUI (Feb 2013)... So shouldn't they credit that time from Feb to me?

There are ways around this you should ask your lawyer!
Will this count as a 2nd offense or first offense? I am on probation for my DUI and License suspended due to that and outstanding ticket. Do you know a likely outcome of a jail time sentence? 60 days? A year or is it possible to be credit for the time I will serve before I go to court (a week) and get fines and extended probation?
