Reinstating Your Driver’s License

If you have been arrested for DUI in Seminole County, you have 10 days to reinstate your license or face mandatory “hard-time” (no driving whatsoever). If this is your first DUI arrest then you may benefit from a new law that will allow you to immediately reinstate your driver’s license. You must sign up for the DUI school and file a Request for Eligibility Review, all within 10 days following the date of your DUI arrest. This will enable you to immediately reinstate your driver’s license. Call our Seminole County DUI law firm today and have us guide you through this time-sensitive process.

Challenging the State’s Evidence

The government must be able to demonstrate a lawful basis to stop and detain you to conduct a criminal DUI investigation. The Unites States Constitution guarantees that people be free from illegal police conduct. This includes illegal traffic stops, searches and interrogation. We can file pretrial motions to suppress and exclude any illegally collected evidence including police officer observations, field sobriety exercises and breath test results. Important questions that should be answered in any Seminole County DUI case to determine if the police acted lawfully are:

  • Is there any video evidence of this incident?
  • Were you stopped and detained for a lawful reason?
  • Did the police officer smell alcohol on your breath?
  • Is there a lack of evidence or a conflict in the evidence?
  • Were you read your Miranda rights?
  • Were any of your statements illegally obtained?

Why Hiring a Seminole County DUI Lawyer Is Essential

Hiring an experienced Seminole County DUI lawyer early on in your DUI case is crucial to protecting your driver’s license and increasing your chances of avoiding a DUI conviction. At Bryce A. Fetter, P.A., we take a full-service approach to defending each aspect of your Seminole County DUI case including helping you immediately reinstate your driver’s license, appearing for you at your first court date called an “arraignment,” defending all tickets issued along with your DUI ticket, attending all pretrial hearings and conducting pretrial negotiations with the prosecutor assigned to your case in attempt to resolve your DUI case with a lesser charge like reckless driving and if necessary defending you at a jury trial.

Seminole County DUI Court

Your first court appearance in Seminole County criminal court is an arraignment before one of the five Seminole County misdemeanor judges. Your second court date will be a pretrial conference on a Tuesday or Wednesday four weeks after your arraignment. A pretrial conference is a time for your DUI lawyer to announce to the court: plea, trial or continuance. A lot of work is done after the arraignment date and before the pretrial conference date. This includes demanding discovery, collecting and reviewing all video evidence, filing pretrial motions and negotiating with the prosecutor.
