62 Questions Answered

Q. Haven't heard from my lawyer in three weeks have called texted numerous times to get an update. What do I do
A: Time to get a new lawyer. In the meantime, show up for court to prevent the issuance of a bench warrant.
Q. In Florida, is a license revoked immediately after a DUI conviction or is that part of the sentencing phase?
A: The safest way to answer your question is to contact the DMV to determine if the license is valid.
Q. Do the DUI level 1 classes drug test in Melbourne FL
A: Traditionally, drug or alcohol testing is only a condition of your sentence or possibly your bond. The testing is performed at the probation office in Rockledge.
Q. how much will it cost to hire a dui lawyer
A: The legal fees will depend on many factors. For example, the following may apply: the complexity of the case (number of witnesses, breath test, aggravating factors), the number of DUI priors, the experience of the lawyer, travel time to the courthouse, and whether the client is seeking a trial. Although fees will vary, it is always best to hire someone who practices exclusively in the area of criminal defense.
Q. hi if someone gets arrested for DUI can they drive until conviction or dissmissed
A: In Florida, the answer to your question depends on a number of factors. For example, if this is a first offense, you must sign up for DUI level 1 school and apply for an administrative review hearing, within 10 days, to obtain a business purpose only license. In the alternative, you may contest the suspension within 10 days of receiving the ticket. You will be given a business purpose only license while the hearing is pending. However, if you lose the hearing, you will be without a license for 30 day (for an unlawful breath test) or 90 days (for a refusal). The remaining portion of the suspension will be under the BPO restriction. Thus, it is generally safer to request a BPO license within 10 days instead of contesting the suspension. If this is a second or subsequent offense, you are not entitled to an immediate BPO license; thus, you must request a hearing in order to save your license. If you lose the administrative hearing for a second or subsequent offense, you may not be entitled to a BPO license; thus, you must serve the suspension without the ability to drive.
Q. Do DUI penalties vary depending on how drunk the driver was?
A: If a breath test is .15 or greater , the penalties for a dui charge increase. Otherwise, your prior dui record is the only factor which will increase your sentence.
Q. I was arrested on December 8, 2018 for DUI. Will I be going to jail?
A: The answer to your question, for the DUI, depends on the urinalysis. If you do not have controlled substances in your system, then the State of Florida has no chance of proving Driving Under the Influence. If you test positive for controlled substances, the prosecutors will still have a difficult time proving your poor driving was due to the consumption of the controlled substance. For example, marijuana can remain in your system for many days. That does not mean your normal faculties today are impaired by marijuana consumed 10 days ago. Jail is very unlikely for the DUI with these set of facts; however, a judge still has discretion to impose up to 6 months of jail for a first offense. As for the Resisting arrest without violence charge, jail will depend on the facts of the case and your prior record - assuming you are guilty of this offense. I would consult with an attorney, in private, about your concerns.
Q. I got a letter in the mail 30 days ago to be A Habitual offender i hired a lawyer how many days doSe it take for a respo
A: The judge’s time for a response depends on the complexity of the issues. If you have hired a lawyer, you should ask him or her for the appropriate timeline.
Q. How soon can I get my license back after a drunk driving conviction?
A: Assuming no holds on your license, you are eligible for a business purpose only license as soon as you complete DUI level 1. If it is a second conviction within 5 years, you must take DUI level 2 and wait 1 year before seeking a BPO license.
