    I am very familiar with the situation with Orange County and their delay in reporting dispositions from 2010. Even though you paid the ticket, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles never received the end result from the Orange County Clerk's office. Your only hope in trying to alleviate the point suspension is to go back and reopen one of the citations. There may be some other ways to avoid the suspension in dealing with the DHSMV directly in Tallahassee. They may...

  2. If I have a trial set for my DUI case this Friday with Public Defenders, is it too late for me to seek alternate representation?

    The short answer is maybe. It depends how old the case is, whether the state attorney agrees to a continuance and ultimately whether the Judge agrees. I suggest you contact a local attorney immediately who can make a call to the state attorney and schedule a motion in front of the Judge before Friday.

    That means your case was continued from one court date to the next. The appearance record is the document that the clerk writes on that serves as the "record" for the proceedings.

    It's possible, although that isn't usually the way things happen. He now has to come to court and prove that you were the driver. If it was an FHP Captain I highly doubt that he has a video in his car. You should consult an attorney in your area to explore the exact facts of your case.

    More than likely the Escambia county sheriffs office will send someone down to pick him up. It's usually the county that wants him is the county that will come and get him.

    It's possible, depending on your record, that you will be able to obtain a non-jail offer from the state attorney. They may be ok with community service and possibly a class or even a no return to the area in addition to possibly a fine. The fact that you are in rehab may help as a bargaining chip in negotiations.

    Is the case still pending, meaning the case was never resolved? Or did you plea to the charge and you are on probation but you did not complete all the terms of the probation. Depending on the county that your case is pending(and depending on whether the case is in VOP status) you may be able to hire a lawyer to get the state attorney to stipulate to return the case to the court document. In addition, your license may be suspended and if the warrant is set aside then your license may also be...

    To acquire your criminal records and determine exactly what is in your past order your background at the link below. This is the official Florida Department of Law Enforcement link and NOT a third party. Then if all of your issues are in Broward and Dade then just call the clerk of court in those individual counties. I will attach link to their websites below.

    Under Florida Law the officer investigating a DUI that involved "serious" bodily injury can forcibly draw blood from you for the purposes of determining what your alcohol and/or blood level is. Of course, it is possible that causation may be an issue in the case and therefore the case may not be able to be filed as a felony. Depending on the extent of the injury, the penalty for such a crime can be very serious and may involve state prison. Additional information won't be available until we...

    In Florida you get arrested if the officer thinks you are impaired. The breath test(or urine) either confirms or denies the officers suspicion. In your case the urine may come back positive for something, however they still have to prove that your normal faculties were impaired. They will attempt to do that through your driving pattern and field sobriety tests. In this window period of possibly several months your case will probably be just sitting in limbo. Of course, if you have a...
