Legal Answers
46 Questions Answered
Q. What happens if your criminal conviction is overturned and the statute of limitations has expired. Can you be retried?
A: The Statute of Limitations is satisfied when the charge is filed. The case does not need to be completed, it just has to be brought and any warrant executed or charge filed.
Q. What is the procedure for representing one’s self (pro se) as a defendant in a criminal case (Florida)?
A: You will be required to follow all of the same rules that an attorney would be required to follow. A Pro Se defendant does not get special treatment. You will need to: 1. Let the court know you intend to represent yourself 2. Register for the E-filing portal 3. Draft and e-file a Notice/Demand for Discovery 4. Research and e-file any motions, notices of hearing etc. 5. Review the discovery and determine any legal issues 6. Negotiate with State Attorney in writing or in court because they will not talk to you 7. Prepare the case for trial if all negotiations break down 8. ETC. There is a lot more to it than that but this should help you get the picture. If you can't afford an attorney you would be much better off with a public defender. Although they are severely overworked, they have much more experience than you do.
Q. Is it possible to transfer community control from Florida to another state, Idaho, if I have a job offer/stable living?
A: Typically Community Control cannot be transferred to another state because it is a function of DOC probation that does not exist in any other state. A transfer would probably necessitate a modification of the sentence to regular probation that would qualify for transfer under the Interstate Compact.
