If i got a speeding ticket and a dui the same time and i beat my speeding ticket in court can I beat the dui case. Florida
i received a speeding ticket then another officer stop and decided to give me a dui. If I beat the speeding ticket court is there a chance I can beat the dui to.
If the basis for the stop was speeding then you may have a valid motion to suppress. Good luck.
Does state law trump hospital policies regarding legal blood draw in a DUI manslaughter suspect?
Last year I obtained a blood sample on a patient who was the driver in a car crash that resulted in a fatality on scene. (I'm an RN). The patient verbally opposed the blood draw, but the highway patrol showed me a search warrant signed by a judge. Our hospital policies only speak to blood draws with signed consent, however I believe that would only pertain in cases not involving vehicular homicide. Would the language of our hospital policies show that the I was in violation of hospital procedures and disqualify the evidence from the case? I have been subpoenaed and I'm nervous.
Not with a judges order, consent with an alternate route of admissibility for the blood, but with the warrant that's...
In the state of Florida, what happens if the police are unable to locate someone to serve them with a summons to appear for dui
A friend of mine has pending dui charges due to an accident where they took a blood sample. The test results came back and they set up a court date and issued a summons to appear, but they are unable to locate the person to serve them with the summons.
Generally speaking, a warrant would be issued for their arrest and the defendant would become a fugitive from the law.
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. DUI do not affect your GMC (Volume 12 – Citizenship & Naturalization, Part F – Good Moral Character Chapter 5 – Conditional Bars for Acts in Statutory Period) I know i'll need a immigration lawyer. 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...
My younger brother and I got MIPs while we were visiting Sandestin, Florida. The officers didn't never saw us with alcohol.
The cops took my fake ID but didn't charge me for it. My younger brother didn't have a fake ID. They saw us walking out of a bar and stopped us. We were both given MIPs. We were never breathalyzed and no other form of sobriety test was performed. Is it safe for me to fight my MIP charge? Or will they just pin me for a fake ID with the evidence that they already seized? My deadline is September 9th.
If you were never in possession of alcohol the state can't prove you were in possession of alcohol (assuming you didn't...
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...
