    There is not really enough information here to fully answer this question. A lot will depend on what evidence was preserved from your original case, and if there was any DNA evidence involved or available from the original case. Hire a good appeals lawyer. Good Luck.

    Unfortunately, a criminal conviction will never "fall off" your record. A convicted felon can have his/her rights restored. Call a local Criminal Defense Attorney to discuss your options. Good Luck

    No way to answer with such limited information, however a person can be ordered to serve the maximum penalty for the original offense when they violate probation. Good Luck

    Many of the other attorneys have given you good advice. I would only add that the DUI Statute DOES ALLOW treatment in lieu of mandatory jail time. It is the only acceptable alternative. Hire a good, knowldgeable, experienced DUI defense lawyer. If you need help finding someone you can depend on in your part of florida feel free to call me and I will help you. Good Luck

    This is neither a felony nor misdemeanor, it is an administrative civil penalty. It will show on your driving record, but is not a criminal offense. Within day days of receiving this .02 violation, you can challenge it by requesting a hearing at the DMV Bureau of Administrative Review. Should you need more information, please feel free to call me. 321-332-6864. More information is also available on my websites.

    If there is any chance you may be implicated in the case you should definetly hire a lawyer to represent you and immediately stop talking with the police.

  10. On home arrest in Florida with an ankle monitor. Can I go to doctor's appointments and needed evaluations?

    In most cases you will be allowed to keep necessary medical appointments, however, you cannot just go. The Judge should have been told about these appointments and health issues when you were put on house arrest. You need to speak with your supervisor and get permission in advance to go. If you just go, you will likely be arrested and kept in jail. Call your attorney for help if you need it or get an attorney if you do not have one. Good Luck.
