Florida Habitual Driver’s License Suspension Can Be Undone
Lakeland, FL (Law Firm Newswire) March 1, 2013 – A habitual driver’s license (HTO) suspension may be reversed. Speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
“If you’re about to have your driver’s license suspended, contact my office right away, before you attend traffic court. There are ways to avoid losing your license for five years and I can help you with that process. Or, if you are under a Florida HTO suspension, I can tell you if you qualify to get your full license back or assist you in getting a hardship driver’s license,” outlined Thomas Grajek, a Lakeland criminal defense attorney.
A habitual traffic offender is one who, over a five-year period, has garnered three or more convictions. Those convictions may include, but are not limited to: DUI, driving with a suspended license, involuntary or voluntary manslaughter in the operation of a vehicle, failure to stop and offer aid after an injury or fatal accident, and racking up 15 convictions for moving traffic offenses. “Offenses committed in another state also count towards a five-year HTO suspension,” added Grajek.
For drivers that have been arrested driving while their license is suspended for being a habitual traffic offender, they face up to five years in prison for a third degree felony. “In short, if in any five-year time frame, you get three traffic convictions, you lose your Florida driver’s license for five years,” Grajek explained.
Is it possible to undo a five-year habitual traffic offender’s license suspension? “In some instances, yes, it is,” said Grajek. “I may be able to file a motion with the court, asking them to withhold judgment on a civil case, such as driving with license suspended. That would remove the 5-year suspension and you would have full driving privileges.”
The ability of a criminal defense lawyer to undo a five year habitual traffic offender’s license suspension largely depends on what offences they have been convicted of. “Never assume you are out of luck. Call me first and we can discuss your situation,” he added.

- Teacher Sexting Student Results In Arrest And Conviction
Technology in schools has introduced potentially new disturbing behavior, such as a teacher allegedly sexting students. This Florida case appear unseemly, but we need to remember that not everything may be the way it looks. And, according to the Constitution, everyone is considered to be innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around. In this instance, there was allegedly a text-message liaison between a high school band director and one of his students. According to the evidence, the texts turned to sexting, and eventually sexual contact, during school hours. Not only were there incidents of sexual contact, but the [...]

Yesterday, I was in court all day before arguing various motions to suppress in my client’s DUI case.

Many people charged with DUI also do not know what it means to mount an aggressive defense to a DUI charge. A DUI lawyer that is trying to win your case and get the charges dismissed will do a number things on your behalf. The most important is to file Motions to Suppress in your case.
