Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. My friend of mine went to a child hear say hearing and the court reserves ruling what happens next?
A: This means the judge is going to issue a ruling with written order at a later date. Many times the attorneys will follow up with additional Memorandum to support the arguments presented at the hearing. You simply need to wait for the judge to make the ruling.
Q. Received my first speeding ticket. Will my insurance rates go up if I take the drivers class to get the points off?
A: Your insurance rates should not go up if you take the class and avoid points for the citation.
Q. I have to go to court for mis.vop 1st time what can I expect
A: The first time that you go to court for a violation of probation, the court will make sure that you have an attorney or appoint a public defender. The judge will typically ready the reasons for the violation of probation so that you are aware of the allegations and then set your case for a violation of probation hearing. If you violation is minor or a technical violation, the government may consider making an offer to resolve the case.
Q. Got speeding ticket- WRONG: ALL car info, lic plate # (1 digit off), I was going north, It says south. Can I fight it?
A: Yes, but the officer can amend the citation prior to the hearing. However, it sounds like the officer has a bunch of facts mixed up in the citation which will help for the hearing. At the end of the day if the officer testifies under oath that he recalls you driving at excessive speed, you will most likely be found in violation, unless you are able to defend the speeding portion of the case. How did he measure your speed? Has the speed measuring device been properly maintained? Does the officer have the proper qualifications to make a determination of speed? Was the officer who wrote the citation, the officer who observed the speed? etc. There are a lot of legal avenues to explore.
Q. I'm aware i can not have two expungements but could I get a sealed and expunge?
A: The Florida Department of Law enforcement only allows for 1 adult expungement. I have included a link to the FDLE website that will also confirm for you. http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/Seal-and-Expunge-Process/Seal-and-Expunge-Home.aspx
