In 2010 I was pulled over for DUI. The case was thrown out, however DMV said yes and suspended my license. I felt that this is not right when the courts said no and DMV which was just one person said yes and I was not allowed to be present to ple...
You've received a rather thorough explanation of the differences between Florida's Administrative suspension and the criminal court case. One, as you've heard, has nothing to do with another. Had you submitted to a breath test and subsequently won a trial, you could move to have the DMV overturn the breath test suspension. Absent those facts, the only process by which you can address the suspension now, years later, is to take the DUI Counter Attack class and pay to have your license reinstated. I'm sorry I don't have better news, but there are no options at this point, based on the information you have provided. You may want to review your license status further with an attorney to ensure that you are fully aware of what the issues are and how to best go about navigating this process.

Avvo doesn't allow lawyers to quote fees or solicit clients in any way when responding to a question so you won't get any answers to your question if it's posed here. I suggest you go to the Find a lawyer tab, find a few lawyers that practice in Polk County and send them your inquiry directly. They will then be able to answer your questions and address your concerns.

He has been in jail for alomst two weeks
The purpose of a 1st appearance is to have a judge review Probable Cause for the arrest. Per Florida law, you are to be seen within 24 hours of your arrest. It's highly improbable that your boyfriend has been in jail for two weeks without going before a judge. If in fact that is the case, there has been a major failure in the process and he needs to have his lawyer address it by way of an emergency motion. If he doesn't have a lawyer, I suggest you hire an attorney to assist in his defense that practices in that county.See question

It troubles me to hear stories such as yours. If a lawyer is not acting diligently and in their client's best interest, then you can and should replace that lawyer. Beyond that, I don't know what to suggest as you have written an opinion but not a question about what you may want or need. Feel free to clarify your question so I can try to be of greater assistance.See question
I'm moving back to NV and can get a license for ten years there also because of my FL records
Whether you are referring to your driving history or your criminal history, there is not legal mechanism to have a DUI conviction removed. The convictions remain active and on your record permanently, unless you were able to secure a reversal of your conviction through an available appeal, the time for which is probably long gone, or through a petition for clemency, which is highly unlikely. I'm sorry I don't have better news.See question
I was charged with grand left charges, ($400 worth of stuff) I got court diversion and failed my first drug test. Now my case is being re opened and was wondering if I'd be placed under arrest or what are th possible outcomes
As a 1st-time offender on a non-violent case, it is not likely that you'll go to jail when the sentence is imposed, which is not likely to be when you return to the docket due to a PTD bounce-back. The case will take some time to find it's way back onto the docket and from there, needs to run its course. The real question you should be asking is how can my lawyer get me back into PTD so I can avoid having a felony record.
If you have an attorney, I suggest you begin discussing the ways in which you may be able to convince the State to re-submit your case. If you don't have a lawyer, I encourage you to secure one that practices here in Orange County ASAP so as to give yourself the best opportunity to succeed. There are far-reaching collateral consequences to having a felony on your record, especially one that involves what's called a "crime of dishonesty" such as Grand Theft. Don't just go into court and enter a plea because you think you screwed up and that's all you can do. There's always something that can be done!
I hope that I've been helpful in addressing your concerns.See question

Once law enforcement is involved, the case becomes nearly impossible to navigate without the assistance of a good lawyer. If you want to make sure he is given the best possible opportunity to avoid having a serious felony and a crime of violence affecting his future schooling and employment opportunities, you can start by helping him find the right lawyer to represent him. With the right lawyer by his side, he stands the best chance of securing the best possible outcome in this case. Your willingness to not only see him get help but your desire to get the charges either reduced or dismissed will also go a long way.
I hope I've been helpful in answering your question. If not, I would be happy to explain or clarify anything that isn't complete or clear.See question
I had blood on my clothes so police assumed I was beat. I have no scars or scabs which means I was not touched;there is a charge and I want to bail the person out
Be careful! The short answer is yes, you can post bail. However, if and when the Defendant is released, he or she may have restrictions in place that prevent them from having contact with you or even from returning to the place of the incident. This means that if you live together, they may not be permitted to return home and possibly may not be allowed to even talk to you. Be careful and if possible, speak with a few lawyers who understand the policies and procedures in Seminole County.See question
My boyfriend has be detained on a vop he has been in prison for 30 days and I would like to know if any charges have been filled as if so dont they have to release him on a ror. In 33days
In VOP's, there's no statutory right to bond and as such, the 33 day hold provision does not apply. That said, here in Orange County the cases are generally set for a VOP Arraignment within 30 days so if he doesn't have a VOP date, he needs to look into that further. If, by some chance, he's not being held on the VOP, he may have an opportunity to bond out. While the chances are slim, it's worth speaking to a lawyer to see what can be done.See question
Your question suggests that you had a motion for finger print exemplars filed in your case by the State. If my understanding is correct, you need to have this conversation privately with your lawyer. There are strategic issues that my affect your case that you'll want to understand thoroughly after a full review and discussion with your lawyer. If you're unrepresented, you need to consult with and hire a lawyer ASAP.See question
