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.

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...
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...

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 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...
