Can anything be done if someone is arrested for driving intoxicated and makes a Police Statement identifying me for a fight?
What can be done if someone who was arrested for being involved in hitting 3 parked cars while intoxicated, not his first offence, makes a statement that I was involved in a fight 5 months prior, after continuously saying for those 5 months to Police that he remembers nothing regarding the fight but names me. Can he change his statement wrongly accusing me of being involved in a fight 5 months prior because he was intoxicated?

How do I go about reinstating my license?
I had a DUI in Florida in 2006. My sentence was: 30 days in jail - one (1) year probation and one (1) year Interlock device. I completed all except the interlock device, as I did not have a vehicle. I have not driven or had a vehicle over the past 8 years and wish to clear up the matter, however, was told that my license could not be released because I did not complete the interlock device segment. I was told that I needed to do so before a license could be reinstated. I do not understand how this can be done.
I think you should post your answer in the Florida forum. In New York there is no requirement to have the ignition...

What are the common penalties for a 3rd dwi offense, however the first was dismissed.
I'm currently facing my 3rd dwi offense. The first one got dismissed based on a plea bargain for the 2nd one which I was convicted of a misdemeanor. I got 3 years probation which I completed successfully and was discharged in only a year. They all happened in a 5 year span. The current charge is a felony. All 3 did not involve injuries, I was pulled over for running a red light on the 3rd one. The 2nd one was when I left a garage my rear tire hit the side street of the garage I was leaving and was immediately pulled over as there was a cop car parked right across the street facing the garage exit which I didn't notice until the lights went on. My question is if convicted will it be charged as 3rd offense or 2nd since the first got dismissed. And what is the possibility of getting jail time
Jail time is certainly a possibility. You should get yourself in an alcohol program immediately. With hard work and...
