How can I push a court date back for a DUI?
Currently, I have another case that was dismissed and I am in the works to get expunged. However, if I am charged with a DUI during this 6 months period of time while the expungement is in process then I will loose this opportunity to have that expunged. My lawyer though this was only a 3 month period and arranged for a court date this month. Unfortunately, I was not even aware of this date until a few days prior and then I could not get a hold of my lawyer. Is it possible to get this court date for the DUI pushed back somehow?

What happens after Dui
just arrived in florida for a short visit before I return to my home in ny. I took a wrong turn at a dark intersection and wound up being on a one way rd. cops pulled me over for wrong way. the pulled me out of my car and wanted a breathalyzer test , I refused and asked 3 times for a blood test as a ny judge told me to never take a breathalyzer, as one does not know how accurate they are, ask for a blood test. I was thrown in jail. now I have no clue what is happening to me. I have a lawyer but I am reading that I have a 10 day period to ask dmv to reinstate my license, i am seeing fr 44 , i have no clue what i am in for in the hands of florida police and florida dmv. i was not drunk, i made a wrong turn the first week in florida

I have a question concerning dui in Florida specifically with the interlock device?
Part 4 of statute 316.193 states If the court imposes the use of an ignition interlock device on a person whose driving privilege is suspended or revoked for a period of less than 3 years, the department shall require proof of compliance before reinstatement of the person’s driving privilege. My license was suspended for 5 five years and I'm am trying to get a hardship license. I don't have a car so the interlock is not possible. Does this rule in the statute mean i don't have to show compliance to get my license back since my suspension was for five years? The statute also says that if I can't pay for the installation and the court deems that I am unable to pay the court will reduce one of my fines for the installation cost. Is this valid? I have a motion hearing with the judge this week. What are my options as to what I should request?
You will have to have a car to install the interlock or you will not get a hardship license. It is unclear whether...

DUI and insurance
My license was reinstated, but Geico wants to drop my insurance, I blew 0 twice in the breath, the second time the cop stopped the test and wrote that I refused to blow. My case was dismissed by the court. But it appears in the DMV still as a DUI. Geico wants me to put my mother in the registration or both as co co-owners we have till June to do this, we both have the same insurance. but I will still be a driver, What would this do? Should expunging my record would be an option? Thanks for any help. Tammy Bowen
Private insurance company can drop you if they want to. Expungement likely would not help because they are looking at...
Charged with 2nd DUI when it's the 3rd offense?
If someone gets a DUI in Kentucky which then has VOP Warrants and left state, why is it that now there is no record of that DUI in the court system and they are registering it as the 2nd offense instead of the 3rd offense within 10 years. When first charged it shows on the paper work as the 3rd offense and now changed to the 2nd offense? Is there a way to give the information to the courts to show proof it is the 3rd offense?
Who are you to do the State's case and assist the prosecution? You do know that you are speaking to a group of...
