Is there a set time to how long you can be held on the side of the road after an accident?
Me and my boyfriend were in a car accident. (Yes, I know he needs a lawyer. We're trying to find one. Any of you in this area? LOL) I was drunk, he was the dd. He hit someone head on. No injuries. The county cops and ambulance came. We were told that we had to wait on Florida Highway Patrol. Five hours later Florida High Patrol shows up. He was asleep in the car at this time. He asked him to do a field sobriety test, he had an attitude with the trooper and refused a breathalyzer. He arrested him, without reading him his rights. They held him in jail for twenty eight hours. He's now being charged with property damage and a DUI. They also neglected to tell him that he had ten days after to file about his license or whatever.
There is no set amount of time, but law enforcement can only detain you for a "reasonable" period of time to conduct a...
DUI first offense in Florida
I'm trying to find out what the worst case scenario would be at court. The charges are DUI and property damage. He refused to take a breathalyzer and was arrested. Spent twenty-eight hours in jail. He has court in a couple weeks. Just want to know what's the worst that can happen, what will likely happen.
A DUI with a crash would normally have the prosecutor seek jail time. Don't simply focus on the worst case scenario....
If I take a deal and plead guilty for 30 days jail. How many days will I actually serve?
2nd dui, 30 days County or in-house rehab, which could be up to 60 depending on program.
Rehab is the better choice, of course, but there are glitches in getting a bed, you might have to wait in the county...
Will an old DUI affect me getting a CNA?
Had a DUI 11-12 years ago. I did DUI court and probation, fulfilled all my obligations. I haven't even had so much as a speeding ticket since then and prior to that, I was never in trouble at all. I am considering becoming a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) in Florida. Will this DUI affect me? Interestingly, I was assigned to a nursing home for my community service hours as part of sentencing and they wanted to hire me back then. Granted, I wasn't trying to become licensed for anything at the time. Please help!
This is not a criminal defense question; It is an administrative / regulatory / licensing question, and no lawyer can...
What am I looking at? I'm in FLORIDA
I hit a vehicle last week with five children and one adult I am probably going to be facing a DWI or DUI when the blood stream and urine screen analysis come back I have never had a DUI or DWI and I am so nervous I've talked to my attorney briefly and I'm trying to figure out my expenses I'm just wondering what am I looking at there is bodily injuries on my insurance claim I have been to jail once for under 1 gram of marijuana I passed all the field sobriety test on scene couldn't pass the 4th one agreed to not consent to it cause I didn't understand the 4th test, transported by ambulance to the hospital and they got their blood and urine I have no idea what I should do and what I'm facing but I know DWI or DUI with bodily injury is a felony if I'm correct, I really don't want to be on probation I rather serve jail time but is this going to be a knock on the wrist or am I in a lot of trouble?
It depends on how serious the injuries are. Blood draw DUI's are very complicated. You need to talk to your lawyer...
Am I going to go to jail for not being able to pay my fines and classes for probation(dui.)
I got a dui in 2014(first time), plead guilty in 2015. Haven't had any problems. But my probation is supposed to end in February and I haven't been able to pay my fines or for my dui class. I was like two months pregnant when I plead and I lost my job when I was like six months pregnant and couldn't find another one being that far along. I had my son last month but still probably not going to be able to get a job and have enough money to pay everything before February. I'm starting my community service next week. Do I have any options to take care of this without going to jail? Can I get a judgement? Community service? Anything???
You do have options. Hire an attorney to help keep you out of jail. An attorney can best help explain your...
