Husband was sentenced 24months for 2nd dwi, is appealing the sentence but has pending case for 3rd dwi what to expect??
My husband no question, has a drinking problem, and a problem with common sense too it seems. He had his first dwi in2008. He was put on probation with a suspended sentence. He was charged with a level4 dwi. His 2nd dwi was in 2009. He was sentenced 24 months in doc with 90 day DART program. He was sentenced on April 7th 2010. Im 3 months pregnant, so my husband appealed the sentence and his appeal date is June 14th 2010. He also has a pending 3rd dwi case on June 18th. my question is...what is the worst and best possible outcome of this situation? And how long does it usually take for someone to get transferred from the county jail to the department of correntions?
I would contact a lawyer immediately and, if there does not seem to be a viable defense to the pending 3rd DWI, then...
Will I be able to reinstate my FL DL after a DUI in GA in 2009?
I just went to court and finally handled my DUI. My Florida licensed expired in 2012 & I have not driven since. I actually live in North Carolina and was going to apply for a NC license after I finish DUI school and have my driving ban lifted in GA. I just recently did a driver's license check in FL and realized that my license in FL is revoked/due to the DUI. Want to know if FL will accept the 16 hour certificate class that I take in NC & if I will be able to get my license reinstated there. I am not certain if I can apply for a license in NC if I have a suspended license in another state. Thank you for your help.

I got a dui in north Carolina in 2003 and got put on probation I elected to bypass probation and serve my prison term.
Since then I had gotten several DWLR to tickets, which I have just recently had handled. So I go to DMV to reinstate my license and they tell me I have to complete dwi assessment. That was part of my probation which I elected to bypass and severe my time in prison. Should I still have to do the assessment since it was part of my probation terms or should I be able to get my drivers liscense with time severed.
You may have elected to serve active time, but with a DWI conviction in NC, you're still required to have an assessment...
