How can I change the length of time that I'm required to have an Ignition Interlock device installed in my vehicle?
In 2007, I was convicted of a 2nd DUI. My court papers/disposition state that I am required to have the IID for 6 months. After my 5 year suspension was over, I applied for a license and had the IID installed. The DMV stated I had to have it for 5 years. I know the Judge gave me less than the minimum amount of time required for the IID to be installed, based on the 2007 FL statutes. As far as I can tell, I should have been required to have it for 2 years. However, I cannot find anything based on the statutes that were in effect at the time of my sentencing that would make the requirement 5 years. What can I do? I'm not even sure what type of lawyer would handle a case like this. I've had the IID for almost two years without incident and I'm ready to move on. Thank you
Speak to a criminal defense attorney about reviewing your paperwork and contacting the bureau of administrative reviews...
DUI First Offense (Osceola county, FL) high BAL.. possible outcomes, please.. More details below!
Good afternoon, my question is regarding a family member who drove while intoxicated. The arrest report mentioned a 0.3 (.32 or .36, I don't recall the exact number) blood alcohol level, he was taken to the hospital and released. There was a minor fender bender and no one was injured. I read that there are harsher penalties for higher blood alcohol levels, but I was wondering if there are any strict "must serve jail" sentences imposed on something like this. He has seen a public defender, and she has stated that the state has not gotten back to her yet on a possible plea. He is currently under a Marchman act, and goes to court ordered treatment and AA. The Marchman came after the DUI. He has no criminal record aside from this and is 64. Thank you for your time.
it would be unusual for one under these circumstances to face incarceration unless he went to trial and was convicted....

If someone was deported due to dwi could they apply for a pardon if parent fell ill in the states even if just temporary?
My brother was very young when he he was deported, I believe he was under 21 he was deported even though he had never lived in Mexico and barely knew the language. His permanant resident status removed and was told not to come back. He enter the U.S. as a baby legally. Our mother has fallen ill and I would like to know what are the chances he could get at least a temporary pardon just so he can come visit our mother. All offenses were done in Texas in early 2000s and late 1990s.
This question should be asked to an immigration attorney. I don't know if a pardon for the DUI will change how the...
