Hello, and thank you for your time. I was told that technically, a DUI is a criminal traffic offense, instead of a criminal offense, but is it considered a prior record on the sentencing point system score sheet in Florida. The rule states "Convictions for offenses committed more than 10 years before the date of primary offense must not be scored as a prior record if the offender has not been convicted of ANY OTHER CRIME for a period of 10 consecutive years". It also states "Any uncertainty in the scoring of the offender's prior record MUST BE RESOLVED IN FAVOR OF THE OFFENDER". I've been charged with insurance fraud and I'm looking for an attorney, but I'm concerned with the sentencing guidelines. I'd like to know some info on this before I retain an attorney. Thanks again.
