Is there any time that may pass to where the interlock device is no longer required in order to obtain my DL?
in 2008 I was convicted of DUI and have not driven since. I do not own a automobile. I understand the insurance requirements. My conviction was over five years past, I was wondering if there is any grace period after such a lengthy period of time when the requirement may be forgiven.
In order to have your drivers license reinstated, interlock would have to be installed - assuming from your limited...
My husband is serving a 30 day jail sentence for 2nd offense DUI.
He was never arrested. The DUI charges came almost 4 months after the incident. He went to court and received a sentence that included fines, probation, 30 days in jail, and a 5-year license suspension. He was never read his Miranda rights at any time. Is this an issue?
Well, if he was never arrested, likely Miranda wasn't an issue because Miranda is invoked at the time of detention or...
What does a retainer cover?
I have been charged with careless driving and a 2nd DUI, 3 months after the incident occurred. There is no court date assigned, I was told to call thd court. I didn't retain an attorney for the 1st DUI and the public defender was awful! What does a retainer cover and how much is the average retainer?
DUI is an enhanceable offense, meaning that eventually you could face felony charges for what would otherwise be a...
My husband will be charged shortly in his 2nd DUI arrest, what can I expect?
The person in question was non-responsive and taken to the local hospital for emergency treatment. The vehicle he was in was towed and no one was notified. The police officer that responded showed up for an initial interview at the hospital but didn't take any notes. He indicated that there would be an arrest once the hospital has cleared him to be released.
You should contact an attorney because blood cases can cause problems for the state of proper procedures are not...
Miami. DUI and Ctitizenship
Hello. i was convicted for a DUI 1st offense in 2014. No criminal background before. Just finished my probation and everything mandatory. I live in the US (green-card holder) since 2009 and volunteer for 2 years helping peoples. Can apply for my citizenship. I'm very confuse many lawyers say yes and other say no.

Thank you very mech

Is a first Florida DUI offense considered a "serious misdemeanor"?
I was charged and convicted for first time DUI in Tampa, FL in 2013. No crash, damage or injuries my BAC was 0.13/0.14. Got the minimum sentence (revocation, fines, CS, DUI school) with no jail time (except for the 8 hrs after arrest) and I completed everything within 6 months. I am about to graduate with a PhD and I am applying for faculty tenure track position in a University in California. The online application form asks the following question "have you ever been convicted of a felony or serious misdemeanor?" As you can see my struggle is with the design "serious." Even after reading other online posts i am still not sure how to answer without being dishonest. Thanks in advance.
This is not a criminal defense question; It is an administrative / regulatory / licensing question, and no lawyer can...
Could I be waiting to get a dui?
Was in a car accident about a month ago, it was my fault. I was taken to the emergency, but had no injuries. The other person was also not injured in any way. They did blood work and found that there was alcohol in my system. About an hr later, an officer came in and only gave me a traffic citation. My insurance company has since given me a rental car and increased my premium. I have already done the traffic school that was needed. Should I get ready to deal with a dui?
In my former life as a prosecutor, if there is a legal blood draw done you could be facing a future DUI and frequently...
