Is there a way to not get a DUI or get a lesser charge?
On 9/11/17 my boyfriend was pulled over going the wrong way down SR 27. He had got turned around and was trying to go the right way down the road. He was pulled over after he had turned around to go in the correct direction. It was after the hurricane and in an area he was not familiar with. He was taken in for DUI because he did not submit to any test. Is there anything that can be done? There wasn't an accident and he was not driving erratically.
As you describe it, your boyfriend's case has a terrible driving pattern (going the wrong way down a highway) but very...
Can new laws and recent scientific studies allow me the opportunity to get old record ex-sponged?
I pled out to Negligent Manslaughter/Vehicular Homicide back in 2010. I was in a wreck and the young lady I hit lost her life. They found small amounts of Marijuana in my blood. I was charged with DUI Manslaughter and pled out to the lesser for 366 days and four year supervision. All of the studies I read lately are showing the amount they found in my blood was well below the "level of impairment"...I smoked 32 hours prior to my wreck.
I could talk about MJ impairment studies for hours, but that's not going to help the situation. Your time for appeals...
How do I go about getting a public defender in a county that is five hours from me in the same state?
I don't have transportation due to suspended license until court date just over two weeks from now
It appears you are asking a transportation issue rather than a legal question. Take the bus, or have a friend drive...
If facing VOP for 1st time DUI can judge sentence to jail for the maximum 6 months if already completed 8 months of probation?
My Dad was originally charged with a first-time regular DUI. Meaning there was no property damage, no one was injured, and he did not blow over a .15. He began serving a 1 year probation term for the DUI 8 months ago. He just recently got charged with a new offense which I'm sure at some point in the near future will cause a probation violation. Therefore, my question is: If the maximum jail sentence for this original DUI is 6 months and he has already served 8 months without incident on probation -- can a judge still sentence him to jail time? I have heard that sentencing for this could be a maximum of 6 months jail time minus any amount of probation time served but I can't find any recent answers on this specific question. I don't understand the point of issuing a warrant if they wouldn't be able to sentence him to jail but I'm in math/finance not law. :) Also, we will be looking for a good VOP attorney on this to handle the bond hearing, etc. Thank you for your information it will be much appreciated.
A probation violator does NOT get credit for time served on probation against a jail sentence. So, the direct answer...

Is there a Typical sentence for first dwlsr with knowledge in levy county when the charge happens after being suspended for DUI?
If you plead guilty, typically the sentence will be up to 60 days in jail. So, don't be guilty. Get a lawyer involved...
I've been charged with 2 hit and run misdemeanors and a DUI. I have a perfectly clean record. Could I serve jail time?
Happened in Florida, first offense of anything illegal, etc. I'm only 19.
Yes you COULD. The perfectly clean record would only help at setencing if you plead guilty or are found guilty at trial....
Sexually assaulted while drunk?
I work in a gentlemen's club and that night I completely forgot I even had taken my prescribed klonopin before work. I had a few drinks with a customer who turned out to be an employee there as well but came in for "fun" . After the drinks he said he wanted a private dance, we went to the room where only a curtain separates us from the public. I sat down and I just remember telling him to sit so I could dance. He instead blocked the curtain/doorway, took his private out and forced it in my mouth. I couldn't move. After, I ran to the customer bathroom, a female employee got a manager for me and I was too afraid to say what really happened so I said it was because of a customer prior to him that had ripped my bottoms. The manager told me I was clearly in no condition to work and sent me home. I blacked out and slowly remembered bits and pieces. Today the employee/customer called me and said it was my fault for approaching him and that I lead him on. I did get him to admit oral sex occurred. It was not consensual. This is a huge gentlemens club in miami and he knows everyone there. The management ignores and writes off real issues from the entertainers. I don't know what to do.
I am sorry to hear of your experience here. This is a very difficult situation that may include several legal facets...
