    Yes, you should consult with a local DUI attorney to discuss this matter. You may be charged with DUI in the near future and a warrant may be issued for your arrest.

    Don't mention specific facts about your case on the internet, this isn't a confidential forum - call a lawyer and speak with them directly about your case. I handle cases like this in Tampa and offer free consultations.

    .14 over the "legal limit" of .08... A blow over .15 may result in enhanced penalties, including a higher fine, interlock device, etc. He should hire a DUI attorney asap so that he does not lose his license - you only have 10 days to file for an administrative review of the license suspension.

    Officer probably wrote you a ticket for No Valid Driver's License, which is a misdemeanor criminal traffic offense. You need to set up the court date within 10 days or there will be a warrant issued for your arrest. If you hire an attorney, the attorney can file court documents to set up the court date and waive your appearance. In Hillsborough, most cases like yours can be resolved without you ever stepping foot in the courthouse. I have several similar cases pending in Hillsborough right now...

    You have a few options: go to the jail, do a "walk through" (mugshot, fingerprints, etc), and pay bond - OR try and do a motion to withdraw the warrant on your own (not recommended AT ALL), or hire a private criminal defense attorney to lift the warrant and resolve the charge.

    You should be able to get it back by filing a motion for return of property with the court. There are many requirements to get this motion properly filed. I would suggest contacting a local criminal defense attorney to file this motion on your behalf.

    You should go to the DMV and request a formal review hearing prior to the expiration of your 10 day driving permit - this will enable you to drive for an additional 42 days and have the opportunity to challenge the suspension. Hire an attorney to do this for you. If you fail to set up the DMV hearing, your license will be suspended immediately after the expiration of the 10 day permit and you will not be eligible for a hardship for at least 30 days.

    It is not that bad - roughly .12 blood alcohol content, but in many blood cases, there is also a medical blood draw, which may be higher or lower. The legal limit is .08, so .129 would be over the limit, but there are many other elements to a DUI charge - assuming that all of those are met and the blood result is accurate, then yes, this would be sufficient for a DUI charge.

    Call a local traffic ticket attorney who is familiar with the Judges / Magistrates in that area - the officer cut you a break for some reason, but you should be aware that the officer has the ability to amend (correct) any errors on the ticket or enhance it to the original offense anytime prior to the hearing (with the approval of the Judge / Magistrate).

    Sounds like you have a good chance at getting this charge reduced or dismissed entirely. However, you cannot do this on your own - contact an Orlando DUI attorney for a free consultation.
