You didn't really ask a question. First, you shouldn't discuss your facts online as they are not protected by A/C...
In Florida, if you are a passenger in a car, driver not wearing seat belt and an empty beer bottle is in back seat
WIn the state of Florida, if you are a passenger in a car that has been pulled over for driver not wearing seat belt and an empty beer bottle is in the back seat, can you be held in jail over night? and, also, put on probation for three months? and given 10 hours of community service? and ordered to pay almost $500 in fees (not counting the drug test during the probation months)? All this without being read their rights until the next morning by the judge himself....All this and REFUSING to give the two young men a breathalyzer test after they requested it, both at the time of 'arrest' and the next morning? By the way, the passenger does not even have a court date. I am livid and would appreciate some clarification on this matter! ps The driver was driving with suspended license.
The answer is yes. Being read your rights is not relevant, unless they are trying to use statements the person made to...
Violation of probation from DUI
Hello all. My husband got his first DUI charge in 2012. He went to his classes, they put him on probation and put an interlock machine in his car for 6 months. One day - at almost the end of his 6 month period - he had a cocktail at lunch around 1pm with the company, his shift was over at midnight, but the machine still read it as a violation. I'm no even sure what ensued after that because he turned the interlock machine in, but since he blew dirty that one time, it was considered a violation of probation. He's had an open warrant out since march of 2013. He retained a lawyer and has a court date on Monday. Will he have to do time - a day, a week, a month - considering the original charge was DUI and he violated probation and this is a warrant that's been open for 3 years...??? I'm nervous about his court date...just wanting to get some advice on some of the possibilities to expect. He does have priors but that was over 20 years ago when he was in his late teens, early 20s. Thank you!
You have good reason to be nervous, but can't accurately predict any potential jail time at this point as it depends on...
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...
Is DUI Dismissal equivalent to non-guilt?
So I took a breath test and it was over the limit (allegedly). My DUI case was Dismissed because of expiration of speedy trial date (yes I filed the motion for discharge and won, state didn't appeal it). Question: 1. Is this considered a dismissal with prejudice and therefore it's equivalent to "Not Guilty"? 2. Can I now get my License suspension invalidated pursuant to f s. 322.2615(16)? 3. Judge did not write or send me anything. How do I get a written order from the judge so I can show it as proof? Thank you very much for any input
The good news is your case is gone forever. It is dismissed with prejudice. However, a dismissal is not a verdict of...
