Myakka City Law

My son has been spending $60/week on drug and alcohol counseling and the counselor keeps adding required sessions. He has tested negative on every drug test for the past year except the last one last week. He declined to take because he knew he would fail for marijuana. He only had two sessions left and now the counselor is telling him he will have to start the 12 week treatment all over again. Feels like a never ending vicious cycle even though I know he screwed up.. He was convicted of DUI with serious bodily injury on Dec. 29, 2012. And because of a probation violation (driving on a suspended license) he is not able to get his license back until 2015 anyways. Just curious if there is any type of statute for this if he does not finish and waits it out...if that is even option? Thx
the State gave your son a 2nd chance, and it appears that your son has violated his probation. There is no statute...
He did not blow this time and denying whole thing as he usually does. Him and I are still married with a lifetime restraining order, Before order was put on him against me he signed a paper giving me one of the cars for life. Because he made me lose my brand new car all paid of. Well since this dui he called my cell and left a message he is taking it off the road because of his dui! When he got the order against him on me I became disabled and he has done more damage to my back because I was healing from fusion still because of several forms of abuse including physical. This caused me to lose my home of 30 yrs bought without him and by me.Since this incident he has not helped me one bit waiting on ssd and won distric court hearing in july ex taking car of road now and i need to see my dr'
There's no clear question here. What is it you're asking of the forum?
and drove his car off a bridge pretty fast (significant damage) with witness of seeing beer in hand and three cold ones in cooler, on top of officers smelling it on him, but he never blew. And now taking it to trial. What do you think his charges will be if found guilty and what will he be facing. He wants to to take my car off the road now because of this ti save himself money, is this legal and what can I also do to stop this, it is not right! Thank you, Carol Tuttle
There is no way of answering that question without more information such as who is the judge, the state, defense...
DUI deputy pulled me over for having brights on. Asked me to step out vehicle and said he wanted a field test. I told him I couldn't due to my extensive injuries from severe accident, and he continued to make me preform tests. Then placed me under arrest. When doing the breathalyzer in the back of his truck (not portable) it stopped at .073 the deputy immediately shut machine off took the print out slip told me I was over double the limit and took me to jail. When I was released the next morning I looked at the ticket he wrote my BAC as .178. I'm not sure what to do now. He didn't observe me for the 20 minutes and he never did the second test to compare for accuracy
You definitely need to hire an attorney. Assuming your recitation of the facts is accurate, there is a multitude of...
On November 8, 2012 I was sentenced for my first DUI charge AND for my second DUI charge plus refusal to submit to a chemical test charge. In both instances, I did the breathalyzer and blew .000. In both instances, I refused to do a urinalysis test. I was sentenced to a interlock device for two years. Was this the correct sentence that was imposed according to the sentencing guidelines or is it at the discretion of the judge if he sentences you to a longer term with a interlock device? Can I appeal the judges decision or is it to late for that?
Dear ?, The penalty for a second DUI by 316.193(2)(a)3 includes: "For a second conviction, by mandatory placement...
My fiancé and I moved into a new apartment about a month ago. The complex had advertised a move in special on their website that said: "Move in by August 15th and recieve your second month free." There was no other fine print on the page ANYWHERE saying "for tenants who qualify" or anything. All the sudden, the office manager is denying us the special based on a DUI charge that is over 8 years old! When we got our copies of the already signed lease, all the sudden we saw that they had hand written that we weren't getting the special bc of the background check. When we try to plead our case or describe how the promo was falsely advertised, the manager gets very rude. This situation seems shady & I feel like we are being cheated without a VALID reason. Is there anything we can do about this?
This is NOT a criminal defense question; It is either a "landlord-tenant" or a "real estate" question. If you want...
i have a pending DUI charge in Pa that is expected to be knocked down to public drunkiness. i am now being charged in Fla for DUI.
It has to be a DUI conviction for it to count as your first. Reducing it down will not count as a DUI conviction.
