I am scheduled to go before a hearing panel and I would like to know, if a wins the case with the DMV will my DUI charge stay on the driving record? Will insurance company ever find out ?
If you win the DHSMV hearing then the suspension will be invalidated and removed from your driving record. However, that is only the administrative side. The criminal case will still exist and end up on your driving and criminal record, assuming you aren't acquitted at trial. These hearings are important and can impact the criminal case. You should contact an attorney in your area that handled DUI cases.See question

Definitely not speedy trial, but statute of limitations may be an issue. Keep in mind that many factors can toll the time for a statute of limitations. It's best to consult with lawyer who practices in the area of criminal law.See question

1. Expunging a record is preferable because it is a destruction of the documents and it won't be accessible in the future.
2. If you have prior adjudications that will bar sealing or expunging. If you don't, then you will need to have a lawyer go through the facts of your case to determine if anything else would preclude it.
Thank you!See question

It isn't unusual to modify terms of probation. However, it is up to your judge ultimately. The best course is try to get the State Attorney in board, then go in front of the judge to see if he/she will agree. Most criminal attorneys should be able to assist you in the process.See question
Dates back to 2007
Many things would factor into answering your question. What the capias was for? Who is the judge? These are just two examples. Without knowing more facts I would only be able to say that the best way is to get ahead of the capias. Getting an attorney to put the case back on the calendar and then appearing with you to resolve this goes a long way with most judges to avoid harsh penalties. I would consult with an attorney and that attorney would be better able to advise you on the specifics of you situation.See question
He is now in jail for Violation Of Probation. What kind of jail time could he possibly get for this offense?
The possible penalty could be up to one year, depending on the degree of the charge of the probation offense. Also, whether he has pled to the DUI can impact his probation violation sentence. It is best to work these cases together. Depending on the judge involved with the case the amount of time he could realistic received may vary as well.

The stand your ground law isn't as clear cut as you may think. The State can still pursue the charge even if you claim stand your ground unless the judge find the immunity of the law applies. The law is not well settled, so I wouldn't assume you are protected.
I would consult with an attorney that has experience in this area. I offer free consultations, or if you have already retained an attorney consult with him or her on how the immunity could be used to your benefit.See question

The other responses are correct, each case is unique, so please take my response with that in mind. DUI cases can last for months or in some cases a year or more. As for mitigation letters, it is common to use those early in the process, but if something has recently surfaced it may be appropriate to draft a mitigation letter at any point in the process.
The more important issue seems to be your comfort level. You should be having a conversation with your attorney. If you're not happy with the answers or the course your case is taking you need to let your attorney know, and if you don't get results then consider seeking new representation.See question
