West Palm Beach Law

In the State of Florida, how long can a Blood Sample for a DUI tox screen go unrefrigerated? In the case I'm assisting in, the defendant's blood was inside a hot cop car for approximately two (2) days. If you could also provided a statute or procedure reference, I would appreciate it
Probably only a matter of an hour or so, perhaps a little more, depending upon the facts. Perhaps not even that much.
I moved to fla to get my real estate license. I since got a dui unfortunately. I need to know what to do to try and get passed to take my exam and work. Can this dui prevent me from getting my license and working?
Unless there was a special condition of your probation announced to the contrary there is no standard condition which...
I got a DUI back in may. I have already gone to 3 court dates (been pushed back and needed more time as well) and have my what I think is last one in September. This is my first DUI and i also have a charge of LSA. Now prosecution has offered 60 days in jail which I am not going to take. My lawyer is telling me I have the options of taking the jail time, house arrest, or pleaing up to the judge. I am scared that if i take the chance of pleaing up to the judge that he will just give me the jail time i was already offered. I need some advice. What are my chances the judge will do that? How long does house arrest for a 1st offense usually last? I feel helpless with who I have hired. Please respond! I appreciate it
You are in a tough situation. Take the plea offer or go to trial and if there is enough evidence to convict the Judge...

That is very difficult for an attorney to answer. Background checks are run through private companies and then analyzed...
I was sentenced for 12 month probation, 50 community service hours, DUI school, VIP, Counseling, $1000 dollar fine, 10-day car boot. 6 months into probation I failed my first drug test due to unknowingly to consuming pot brownie. I have no priors. I have completed DUI school, my fine is down to $650, I did online VIP but PO said i have to do the in person one, haven't missed probation ever, I plan on doing as many Comm Service hours before hearing, and the counseling as well. what should I expect? if I violated on a Tuesday, when should I turn myself in? where can i check for warrant? would paying off my fine help? what else can i do to help my case?
Have you discussed with your PO what you are likely looking at. Ask if there is a possibility of the court simply...
I was pulled over for suspected dui but blew .000 and no drugs were found in my system. The state ultimately dropped the case due to lack of evidence. I would like to know if I can sue the arresting agency for false arrest to recoup my attorney fees plus pain and suffering that I have gone through for this.
I'm not licensed in the State of Florida and as such, I'm not authorized to give legal advice there. I will share...
