  1. Best answer

    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 require you to complete a long term 12 hour advanced driver improvement school too.

    This is not intended to be an attorney-client relationship and is my opinion only. Consult with a local attorney for additional advice.


  2. There may be little you can do, but I agree with counsel that asking Orange county to amend one of the charges, it may help. Talk to an Orlando area attorney.


  3. This is certainly a wicked situation for you. One attorney seems to know all about the problem, and perhaps he is the local one you want to hire to help you out of this predicament. Good luck to you.
