Summary

As a former Assistant State Attorney in Daytona Beach I handled over 5,000 cases. Working as a prosecuting attorney gave me a great deal of experience in DUI, theft, domestic violence, battery, assault, driving while license suspended, juvenile crimes, drug charges, misdemeanors, motions to suppress, motions in limine, traffic tickets and trial advocacy. I was exposed to numerous criminal defense strategies. This experience taught me what works and what issues The State Attorney's office faces when trying to prove their case. As a former member of the Big 12 championship Nebraska Cornhusker football team I have the mental and physical toughness to stand up against the state and fight for your rights. The Law Offices of Kevin J. Pitts in Sanford, Florida represents the accused in Orange, Seminole, Volusia and Lake County. Cases in other counties will be considered on a case by case basis. I became a Florida Supreme Court certified family mediator in 2007. I currently focus my practice solely on criminal and traffic defense.

10 Questions Answered

Q. Fl. My 13 yr old son smacked a boy for making fun of him and charges were filed... what will happen in court?
A: You have two issues. The first is sanctions placed on him by the school. This can include suspension or expulsion. The second is court. He could be charged with battery, disorderly conduct or possibly disrupting a school function. He may have legal defenses for his actions. If he has not been in trouble before diversion might also be a possibility. The best thing to do is speak with an attorney in your area who has experience in juvenile law.
Q. Im being charged with DUI in FL. How do I know if they are considering my prior DUI in Ohio
A: Sometimes it gets over looked or is used by the prosecutor as leverage to get a plea. The classic example is the prosecutor will offer a first DUI and if it is not accepted and the case is set for trial they will request the judgement and sentence from Ohio. If they have a certified judgement and sentence or if the Ohio DUI is on your Florida driver's history it will be charged as a second. The way to find out is wait for the offer and if they say second DUI outside of five years or second DUI within five years you will know it is being used. If you have an attorney talk to them about it and they will deal with it accordingly. Even if the prosecutor misses it DMV will hit you with additional license suspension if they find out about it. The big issue is if the conviction date was within five years of your arrest date. If that is the case DMV will increase the license suspension to 5 years if they find out about the prior. Talk to an attorney and they will be able to help you with this issue.
Q. According to Florida state law, is a shipping container considered a structure - specifically in reference to burglary?
A: If the case is still pending disregard anything I say. As a juror your job is to place the facts into the law as explained to you and decide if the state has carried the burden to prove the case. The attorneys present the evidence and the Judge explains the law. As a defense attorney I can assure you the attorney is not upset that you found not guilty for another reason. Often the attorney does not know what the reason is unless a member of the jury discusses it with them. The definition of structure from Fla Jur is attached here. For burglary purposes, "structure" is defined by statute as a building of any kind, temporary or permanent, which has a roof over it, together with the curtilage thereof; however, during a state of emergency declared by the governor and within the area covered by the order or proclamation, a "structure" for burglary purposes means a building of any kind, or such portions or remnants as exist at the original site, regardless of the absence of a wall or roof. For example, a wood frame house under which the defendant crawled in order to cut and remove copper pipe constituted a "structure" within the scope of the statute defining the offense of burglary of a structure, where the house was a building and had a roof. 16A Fla. Jur 2d Criminal Law—Substantive Principles and Offenses § 1044.
