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?

I have less than 2 years to go on the suspension. Am I eligible for any type of license or hearing prior to Feb 2015?

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,...
How do I get my license back after a DUI conviction?
I was arrested for a DUI (over 0.15), and completed all of my conditions of probation. I was arrested while driving a friend's vehicle - I don't own one. I was court ordered to get an Ignition Interlock device installed in my vehicle. I have saved up enough money for a down payment (already approved financing), get the appropriate insurance coverage, get the Interlock device installed, and pay all fines to get my license reinstated. Here's the problem, and I no one seems to be able to help. I'm stuck in a perpetual loop of insanity, and it's aggravating as all get out. I cannot purchase a vehicle or insurance without a valid driver's license. However, I cannot get a valid driver's license until I show proof of the SR-22 insurance coverage and proof of the Interlock installation. I can't get one without the other, or the other without the one. I go to the dealership and they tell me I can't get a car without a valid driver's license. My insurance company won't even cover me if my license isn't valid. But I can't get my driver's license reinstated until I have those two. I'm out of ideas. Can an attorney help with this at all?
As crazy as it sounds, one way around this problem is to use a friend's vehicle to get your license and then once you...

My 23 yr old son got aa dui with a bac of .21 and admitted to drinking per police report.
He never drinks and was actually feeling sick that day and took NyQuil. He friend was going out to celebrate his end of semester. My son, also a student made the decision to go. On the way home he was at a traffic light. When the light turned green he noticed traffic ahead was moving. The car directly in front of him didn't move and he slightly tapped her car. They got out and looked at cars and he noticed no damage but since they were blocking traffic they pulled through intersection and into parking lot. Another vehicle also followed and very quickly a FHP arrived. The FHP said my sons eyes were bloodshot and he smelled alcohol. He did field sobriety test and BAC. My son was very nervous and said he did consume 6 beers. He was sent to Pasco. County jail and released the next day on ROR. He is a college student with a part time min wage job. He does have a PD assigned. He needs to be able to drive to school and work. Does he have a defense and approximately how much would a lawyer cost and do they take payments.
