1st time DUI reduced to reckless driving but almost every penalty for 1st time DUI
I had been caught for first time DUI few months back in Pasco county, FL. I hired a DUI lawyer for that. My BAC came as .069 and urine test also clean. I did not do very good in the FST s as per the report but I am from a non English speaking country had some problems understanding the directions. No accidents no injury. Prosecution has offered to reduce it to reckless driving but following is the deal they have offered, 1. 12 months probation 2. 6 months DL suspension 3. 50 hours community service 4. 10 days vehicle immobilization 5. DUI school 6. Victim panel Should I accept this or is this too much?
I would highly suggest you follow your attorney's advice on this one. First blush is some of it is a little steep but...
My roommate is on probation for 1st dui. He was driving on his suspended license, and received a ticket.
He had already received a ticket, for driving on suspended license, following his dui. Instead of jail time, he was told he was facing week in jail, they put him on probation. He told his officer on his next visit and was told he will violate him at the end of the month and issue a warrant for his arrest. I was wondering how much jail time is typical for violating probation, and also is jail time necessary for getting 2 tickets for driving on suspended license after a dui. Thank you in advance.
He can get up to 6 months county jail on the DUI charge, up to 60 days on the 1st Suspended License Charge (assuming it...
Can a driver's license be reinstated in Fla if there are 4 DUI convictions in Ohio, all more than 25 years old?
My 64 year old cousin has 4 DUI's from Ohio that are all more than 25 years old. Because of these, Florida permanently revoked his driver's license in 1992. Is there anyway for him to get it back so that he can drive around his elderly mother who needs help now?
He may be eligible for a business purpose permit. Have him call the Bureau of Administrative Reviews and they can...
Can I travel abroad for a few days while DUI case pending?
Got a DUI in January of this year and the case has been postponed every month. Next hearing is August 15th. I've never been arrested or been in trouble with the law. I'm a legal permanent resident and I need to travel outside the states for about 4 days due to a family issue that I need to take care of. That would be on the 19th of August. I'm not in probation or anything and bailed my self out when I got arrested. Question is, I'm a going to have any issues at customs coming back in due to a pending DUI case? I trust my lawyer but then again he is not an immigration lawyer so just looking for different opinions. Thanks for the potential answers and taking your time to answer my concerns.
This is an immigration question, not a DUI question. You need to post it again under that category.
Violation of probation from DUI
Hello all. My husband got his first DUI charge in 2012. He went to his classes, they put him on probation and put an interlock machine in his car for 6 months. One day - at almost the end of his 6 month period - he had a cocktail at lunch around 1pm with the company, his shift was over at midnight, but the machine still read it as a violation. I'm no even sure what ensued after that because he turned the interlock machine in, but since he blew dirty that one time, it was considered a violation of probation. He's had an open warrant out since march of 2013. He retained a lawyer and has a court date on Monday. Will he have to do time - a day, a week, a month - considering the original charge was DUI and he violated probation and this is a warrant that's been open for 3 years...??? I'm nervous about his court date...just wanting to get some advice on some of the possibilities to expect. He does have priors but that was over 20 years ago when he was in his late teens, early 20s. Thank you!
You have good reason to be nervous, but can't accurately predict any potential jail time at this point as it depends on...
Can i still get a tourist visa for the uk with a pending dui trial.
I was arrested for suspected dui in june 2013 and currently the case is still pending with my first court appearance scheduled for 15 september. I need to travel to the uk to complete a week of exams and then back to the usa for work. I am a south african citizen with b1 b2 visa for the usa. This is my first offense ever with no prior history. One of the questions on the visa application form is whether you have ever been convicted of a crime and then the following question which asks if you currently awaiting trial? Thanks in advance for any information regarding this.
Most attorneys here practice U.S. laws and this question is posted on U.S. immigration law. Your question is about U.K....
Can I get a DUI??? I didn't receive a ticket on the scene, no breath/blood test.
So, back in june of last year I received a D.U.I in Missouri, it was legit and unfortunately I've landed myself that two-year probation. Saturday night and into sunday morning I was vomited on in a nightclub so I decided to leave... Got in my car and started driving home, only to have a guy turn from a yielding turn lane into my lane and cause a head on collision. During this collision I got a ton of scrapes on my face and started feeling incredibly woosy. Everyone kept talking about how "loaded" I was, smelling the alcohol from the vomit, and the cop did the finger-eye test while I was seated and I started to feel lightheaded so I almost passed out. Regardless I'm just confused because the cop never gave me a breathalyzer test, someone had said his kit was expired. Then, a woman walked over and kept talking about how lucky I was and the paramedics were coming to get me which meant I "couldn't get a dui." While in the hospital I was given a couple X Rays, there was no police presence, and no blood sample was taken. Beyond the cop claiming I was loaded, no tests were taken and no one gave me a ticket... In the Ambulance I did get a blood sugar test w/ a score of 100. Should I worry?
If you're charged with a DUI, you'll likely get a letter in the mail. If you had absolutely no blood alcohol level, you'...
