If you have a "wet reckless" conviction and catch another DUI charge -- still a 2nd degree misdemeanor? Also question about plea
. I've not yet retained an attorney but this isn't my first rodeo. I know you can probably count actual DUI trials on one hand, but if you have seen someone go to trial and lose -- what sentences are typically imposed? I guess the meat of this post is "My plea seems bad enough, is it that much worse to be found guilty of DUI at trial?" Do guilty DUI defendants typically receive just jail time if they endure a trial, or do they get jail time + all the conditions of a plea bargain (probation, car impound, dui school, etc). Or is the Plea Bargain really a great deal considering the slim-to-nill chance at beating the charge in a trial, and the loss of freedom that would lead to job loss. Admin suspension sustained, so DUI School II, anyway--finally"not guilty" trial = reverse DMV ruling?
The severity of your sentence after trial will depend on the judge and any aggravating facts associated with your case....
Can my brother be charged with DUI if no tests or blood work was performed?
My brother just finished a trial and no evidence was provided. The state didn't have no blood work and the officer didn't perform any field tests on my brother on the night he wrecked his car. He received 5 years of probation and 30 days in jail for this. Is this fair? Can they convict him even though they didn't have any evidence? Also, for the first offense, isn't the punishment to steep? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Also, he wasn't arrested at all but was sent to the hospital; they didn't draw any blood from him.
If the trial has ended, it is obvious he can be charged with the offense. If he received 5 years of probation, then he...
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...

It's not that Florida will assess additional penalties for closed DUIs, but they may have rules that apply to your...
