    No you will be required to get the ignition interlock device installed. Even though you waited out your revocation the DHSMV will still require the device. Call them at 850-617-2000 for any additional questions.

    First of all I am not sure why your license would be suspended UNLESS you received a companion civil infraction like a speeding ticket at the same time as the DUI arrest. You submitted to a breath test, blew under a .08 and gave a urine sample. Under that scenario the Florida DHSMV would not take any action to suspend your license while your criminal case is pending. I suggest you run your driver's license number on the free DHSMV website and see exactly why your license is suspended....

    I am sure there is a general order dealing with arrests, I am not so sure it breaks it down by every crime. You can send a public records request to the Orange County Sheriffs Office to see if they have one. They will let you know if one exists then tell you what the fee would be to have them copy it for you.

  5. If I refused a breathalizer and got my first time dui, is there anyway not to have the mandatory 90 day suspension?

    Unfortunately, if you lose the formal review hearing you will be required to not drive for 90 days. There is no way around that. To the DMV its black and white, they don't take into account your family, that you have to drive for work, or anything else. During this 90 days of hard time you might want to complete DUI school and any recommended counseling.

    First of all you are a first time offender. Manatee county probation department runs a program called pre-trial diversion that you may qualify for and after approximately 6 months your case will get dropped by the state attorney if you complete all the terms and conditions. The $200 you are referring to is a civil penalty that the retailer is entitled to under Florida law. Try to scrape up the money to hire a lawyer.

    It can take months for the blood results to come back from the crime lab. Once the results come back they are sent to the law enforcement agency that is doing the investigation. The officer will supplement their report and then forward the paperwork to the state attorneys office for a direct file review. Speedy trial, which is a legal term that requires you to be brought to trial within a certain number of days is not running yet because an arrest or starting of the case is not beginning to...

    Lots of firms will take payments for this type of work. Many firms will require a down payment then ask that you pay them monthly or every week.

    It depends on the nature of the injuries to the victim. There is not a blanket answer to that question. If the injuries are very serious then the penalty could be very severe. Consult a lawyer in your area.

    Yes, under Florida law if you elect to complete a driver improvement school to keep the points off you still have to pay the ticket at the clerk's office. The fine doesn't go away if you elect traffic school. Contact the clerk of court in the county in which you received the violation for further details.
