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...

Can I receive a hardship license after a 2nd DUI?

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,...
Miami-Dade County BOT for DUI - interlock and comm svc
I am currently on the tail end of finishing the Back on Track program due to a DUI that occurred this January. I currently have the Smart Start device installed on my car, 6 month period. I had an instance a few weeks back where my vehicle locked out due to not Blowing a retest after the car was parked and I forgot to blow, thus creating a lockout. Smart Start was vague on how to report this - they said to call FL DHSMV, but I am on a pre trial diversion agreement program (BOT) ?? I would like to know who to report to, or how to explain it to Court Options. Also, was wondering if I am able to pay for the 60 community service hours required to complete the program. It's hard to balance work and school and find the time to get the hours in. Thank you for your time and assistance.
These are questions that should be able to be answer by your probation officer (diversion supervisor). They should be...
