Is the Kehoe test a good defense for a DUI case ?
A friend of mine was charged with suspicion of DUI because of an illegal turn, however it turns out t his attorney was able to get a video footage of a nearby building, and it clearly show that my friend didn't not make an illegal turn. I have been reading on the internet about a KEHOE TEST, and that the burden is on the state to prove that the stop was legitimate . Can his lawyer use the KEHOE test to get any evidence suppressed. I reckon any evidence obtained thereafter would be illegal because the 4th amendment right was violated ,and a judge should make the state prove their case by doing the KEHOE TEST ?

Though I'm not convinced the Kehoe case is the most persuasive authority, your analysis is correct. If your friend did...
How big is the difference between just a DUI arrest on record and a DUI conviction when it comes to the Florida Bar?
I have a previous DUI Arrest that was brought down to a reckless. Now I am in pre-trial for a second DUI arrest that my attorney was able to get a plea bargain of DUI 1 with the minimums.

The trial can go either way according to my attorney?
You have an attorney, ask him. You might also want to contact an attorney who regularly represents people before the...
Arrested at 17 for DUI, will be 18 by the time of conviction. Will this be on my adult of Juvenile record?
I was arrested at the age of 17, I am now 18 and still going through the court process. The arrest took place 5 months before my 18th birthday. I was arrested for a DUI after crashing into a tree while rounding a corner. I have retained a lawyer and am hoping for a wet reckless driving plea as I did not blow or submit to field sobriety tests. I am wondering if the conviction would show up on my adult criminal records or be sealed because I was a juvenile at the time of the arrest. Also, what are the typical probation consequences for a wet reckless in Florida? and how long would said probation last? Thanks
If you have retained an attorney, ask him this question. That is why you hired him. If he does not know the answer to...
