Governors Pardon? In 2003 my Florida Drivers License was permanently revoke for a felony fourth DUI that occurred in Feb 2002.
In July of 2002 I lost my 22 year old daughter to an alcohol related accident that would change my life for ever. Up until that point in my life I had unsuccessfully tried to control my drinking for 30 years. I placed myself into rehab in Aug of 2002. Last month by the grace of God and the Fellowship of AA I had the honors of celebrating 11 years of sobriety!!! I have numerous people that are willing to write letters in my behalf to support the fact that i have been clean since rehab. My psychiatrist from rehab whom I am still I contact with told me that he would write a letter also. My question is does it make sense to file for a Governor Pardon in an attempt to have my driving privileges restored. I babysit my grand children and need to drive to get the to and from school, doctors...

What exactly does "adjudication withheld" actually mean? My son has two of those. one as a juvenile and one for adult dui.
When I look on the county sheriff web site under his SS number, I find the adjudication withheld in both the juvenile and adult records. I always thought that as a juvenile, your records were sealed. The juvenile offense was a sham offense. He did not participate in the crime, but because, 12 hours later, he was in the proximity of the stolen merchandise, he was judged as guilty as the perpetrators of the crime and was given juvenile sanctions, adjudication withheld. The other offense, was a plea bargain. What do we have to do in this situation to get this stuff expunged from his record so he can get a job in the future?
Withhold of adjudication means the judge took the plea but declined to enter a conviction on the record. Theoretically,...
If this is my first Dui is there anyway around getting the interlock device?
Had a DUI 2009 and I just became eligible to get my license not my hardship in August of this year. This is my first Dui and I have met all my court requirements as far as taking the Dui course and paying all the fines and court cost. My question is the only thing I'm having problems with is the interlock device I have to have to put on the car. I can't afford to pay for the installation and the monthly fees, is there any way around me not having to get the interlock device? Also the reason I had to get the interlock is because my B.A.C was over a certain limit
The short (and long) answer to this frequently asked question is "no". DHSMV will hold your driving privileges hostage...
