Will my license be suspended in Florida if I lose my Colorado DMV hearing?
I am a Florida resident. I received my first DUI a few weeks ago while on vacation in Colorado visiting family. My DMV hearing is a month away. My employer will terminate my employment if I do not have a valid Florida Driver License. I know Florida is part of the Driver License Compact, but will Florida suspend my license if I lose the Colorado DMV hearing? Some things I have read state they only suspend after a DUI conviction. I am confident I will beat the DUI criminal charge, but lose the DMV hearing.
That is a great question and really best answered by the folks at DMV. I would call them but do NOT give them your...
I have a BPO Liscence with a interlock restriction (P). When traveling, can I drive a company rental car with a sworn affidavit?
When traveling on business, can I drive a company rental car with a sworn affidavit per the company leased vehicle provision in Florida Statute §316.1937(7)? I'm not sure if a company leased vehicle is also interpreted by the court as a company rental vehicle. Webster's dictionary defines lease as: "a legal agreement that lets someone use a car, house, etc., for a period of time in return for payment" Is there any case law clarifying the company leased vehicle provision in Florida Statute §316.1937(7)?
If I were you I would carry a copy of the statute along with the affidavit from the company. Don't forget the second...
Is it possible for a car impoundment to be waived on a Orlando, FL DUI conviction if I do not own a car and have supplied that.
I was arrested for DUI back in 2012 out of Orlando, FL (Orange County) however I was not actually convicted until February 2015. There was a plea deal made where my PD told me that the State was not going to have me do the interlock in addition to the car impoundment. This was based off the fact that I no longer own a car and my family members are not willing to let me use theirs for the impoundment as it causes a hardship all around. I am 4 moths into probation and have completed all other aspects way ahead of the due dates. My impoundment is due by 08/23/2015 and I would hate for that to be a violation of probation based off of honest facts and my attorney telling me it would be waived. I no longer live in FL rather OH and have not been able to reach my PD.
You can stave off a violation by appearing before your Judge, being sworn, testifying that you neither own nor have...
If i get a dui in Illinois, but i live in Florida. Will it suspend my Florida license?
Its my first dui...clean record, taking it to trial
This question should be directed to a FL lawyer.
Is it better to request a blood test when charged for a DUI ?
The relationship between citizen and police is at an all time low these days. It seems like the police would rather lie on arrest affidavit to make themselves look good, and to get credit or a promotion in the long run at the expense of an innocent person. God will pass his judgment on those that do their jobs wrong. So, If someone were to be arrested in Orange County FL for DUI , can they opt for a blood test ? What are the names of some companies that will come to the testing station to take your blood ? Can the breath test operator manipulate, or mess around with the machine, to give a higher BAC. I would think the arresting officer and operator can easily collude to screw over the arrestee.
Super good questions! The law as I interpret it these days allows the police to ask for breath or urine tests unless...
Am I inadmissible for Canada flight connections with a DUI Arrest (Refusal), Pretrial Diversion, but a Nolle Prosequi result?
I have flights scheduled very soon that have connections in Canada. In 2013 I was arrested in Orlando, FL for DUI (Refusal to submit to tests), had an Administrative Suspension put on my license from the DMV for the refusal, and was offered participation in a Pretrial Diversion Program. Since then I got my license completely reinstated, completed the PTD, and the case resulted in Nolle Prosequi. I am currently working to expunge the record now.
This is a question of Canadian not US law. We deal with US law only.
How long does it take to get a DUI PTD contract issued ?
I am eligible for PTD and I I am willing to get this DUI case over with and will be willing to satisfy my requirements/conditions quickly in order to get the case ,Nolle Prosequi. I have been researching cases on the clerk's website, and I can see from other people's cases that the PTD contract is issued on average after, 4 months or so, while some were given the next month. I am unsure why this is. I would like to know how soon after the Pre trial conference, can I get my contract and start fulfilling it ?
It takes way too long in Orange county. Nobody knows why. It's terrible. It has also gotten expensive.
