Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered

Q. My fiancée was arrested for a vop for things That were falsely reported against him and can't prove it what can i do
A: The best advice I can give is to consider retaining an attorney for him so that the attorney can investigate and address these issues with the Prosecutor handling the case.
Q. DUI case,Judge withheld adjudication,no points added,no conviction will show on driving record.Whats that mean?
A: In the State of Florida, a Judge may not withhold adjudication on a DUI case. If your DUI charge was reduced to a Reckless Driving, then a withhold would keep points from being assessed.
Q. Husband committed domestic violence towards me for first time ever. Can I file a police report without pressing charges?
A: Once you file a police report, it will be up to the law enforcement agency to determine whether to submit the report to the Office of the State Attorney. If they do, and if upon review the State believes that there is sufficient evidence to file charges, they will be able to do so at that time.
Q. In Florida if a 15 yr old gets pregnant by a 19 yr old will the 19 year old go to jail since its within the 4 yr
A: If the juvenile and/or her parent/guardian seek to prosecute that is a possibility. It very well may be in your best interest to seek the advice of counsel.
Q. I'd like to sue the bar that served me the drinks before I got my DUI. Is that possible?
A: Not very likely. Generally would be reserved for a scenario where you were very, very visibly intoxicated.
Q. I have a warrant out for probation violation... How much time do they usually give you for that?
A: There is not a standard period of incarceration I can only say that the court could do anything from reinstatement to 1 year in the County Jail. Considering what the violation is, an experienced criminal attorney should be able to get additional time to allow you to complete the conditions in hope of avoiding jail time.
Q. What do I need to do to be able to carry a gun with me for protection without breaking any laws?
A: I suggest you apply for a concealed carry permit. You will first need to complete a gun safety class and then you can apply at a regional office. You will need to bring a photo id along with your certificate showing you completed the gun safety class.
