    What you should disclose depends on what the question asks. In Florida, the application for admittance to the bar requires you disclose even if your record is sealed or expunged. You will get penalized more for not fully disclosing than for any acts you may have committed at the age of 12. Good Luck.

    Get a great lawyer who knows what he is doing. They can and hopefully will charge this as a felony DUI. a third offense within 10 years of a second is a felony in Florida. Do not let them know the first was uncounselled until after 90 days has past from arrest and do not waive speedy trial under any circumstances. After 90 days have passed, file a motion to dismiss the felony DUI based on uncounselled prior plea. Then when they try to refile as misdemeanor, file a notice of untimely file...

    The third district court of appeals has ruled that a person does not have a right to an attorney prior to deciding whether or not to take a requested test. There is no 20-30 minute rule. In cases of serious bodily injury or death, the officer's can forcibly extract your blood. In cases where you are not conscious or not lucid enough to answer their question, they can take your blood since you agreed to give it when you got your license (hence the name implied consent). Each case is...

    For criminal cases you go to the court and ask for the public defender to be appointed. You should also be careful of admissions you make in public forums as they can be used against you. Good Luck.

    You have a choice to make. You either make time to get the hours done or you violate probation. They other option is to ask the judge to either extend your probation to 12 months to give you more time to get the hours done, or to allow you to buy the hours out. Contact a local attorney for help. Good Luck.

    If you challenge the DUI, you lose the opportunity to participate in diversion. Even though the PD did not tell your son about the ignition interlock device, I believe his best bet is to complete the program. it is the only way to know with certainty that the charges will be dropped. Once that happens he can expunge the arrest (if otherwise eligible). Good Luck.
