I was going through a nasty divorce during that time and I haven't drank anything since. I was a resident of Florida when I received both DUIs, but I have since moved to Alabama. I have completed my probation, paid my fines, been to dui school, installed an interlock device on my vehicle, and completed a 90 day rehab.
