If the alleged victim does not want to press charges against you this does not meant that the State Attorney's Office will drop the charges. It is the State of Florida versus you as the Defendant.How Do I Become Eligible For A Hardship License After A DUI?
In order to be eligible for a hardship license after a DUI charge you must first enroll in DUI school you must then wait to apply for the hardship license. For instance, if you refused to submit to the breath test you must wait a period of 90 days of the 1 year administrative suspension. If you did submit to the breath test but blew over the .08 then you must wait a period of 30 days. You must then take your certificate of enrollment to the DHSMV.Under What Circumstances Can I withdraw My Plea?
You can withdraw your plea under certain circumstances for instance if you were incompetent at the time you entered your plea meaning you were under influence of drugs or alcohol. If you did not understand the charges against you. If you did not understand the consequences or penalties that you would be subject to these are all reasons that would be considered by the court in determining whether or not your plea can be withdrawn.What Is The Difference Between Sealing And Expunging A Criminal Record?
The difference between sealing and expunging your criminal record is that when your record is expunged the court and any law enforcement agency is required to physically destroy your record. With the sealing of your record they are not required to physically destroy your record but they are required to keep it out of public sight along with an expungement.What Must The State Prove For A DUI Conviction?
The State must prove for a DUI conviction that at the time you were driving or in actual physical control of the vehicle and that while you were driving or in actual physical control of the vehicle you were under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, a controlled substance or a chemical substance that impaired your normal faculties and/or that your breath or blood alcohol content was at .08.
- Q. How do I fight getting my license suspended without me knowing about the citation.?
- A: Are you saying you were never pulled over for speeding? Do you believe someone used your identification? If so you should contact the Clerk's Office and get more details. You will have to prove that it was not you.
- Q. Bought a car and got a ticket for no license plate on our way to get a license plate, should I pay or fight.
- A: It is best to hire an attorney to handle your ticket. Depending on the Officer the Attorney may be able to convince him or her to drop the ticket without having to go to trial, if you can show you immediately got the tag and plate.
- Q. If I’m in the car with my son who is 14 and he wrecks and injures people in the car can I be criminally charge
- A: Florida Statute 322.36, Permitting Unauthorized Operator to Drive, states: "A person may not authorize or knowingly permit a motor vehicle owned by him or her or under his or her dominion or control to be operated upon any highway or public street except by a person who is duly authorized to operate a motor vehicle." If a person violates this statute they commit a second degree misdemeanor punishable by up to 60 days in jail.
- Q. Cannabis oil felony charge in Polk, no prior criminal history. Realistic out come of attorney is hired?
- A: I would like to say that the answer to your question depends a lot on the prosecutor assigned. Some counties also have drug court, which is typically an offer of diversion given to someone with no prior criminal history.
- Q. Question regarding FOIA/Privacy Act for those familiar
- A: My experience has been that if you are being investigated for a crime, the investigative report and victim report is protected. However, I would have an attorney contact the Detective on the case and request whatever information is available. Why you are being investigated, what information they have on you, etc. Some detectives will speak to attorneys.
- Q. Can I get arrested just because someone said I stole something from them
- A: If you had moved into the home and you were locked out when you could not pay that is called an illegal eviction. If you are accused of stealing, but you deny said accusation and there are no witnesses it will be difficult for the State to prosecute such a case. It does not mean you wont be arrested, but the charges may be subsequently dropped. It is best not to speak to the police unless you have an attorney.
- Q. If a search warrant does not specify any items, is the evidence admissible?
- A: A search warrant should include information such as: names of the persons to whom the warrant is directed – usually law enforcement officers; a description of the premises or item to be searched; the grounds that justify issuing the warrant; detailed descriptions of any property to be seized; an inventory of items seized; a provision for duplicate service; and incorporation of the affidavit into the warrant. If any of these elements are missing, a criminal defense attorney can often contest the warrant by filing the appropriate motions which might lead to the warrant from being declared defective on its face. You will get a copy of the search warrant in discovery. Discovery is provided 15 days after the information is filed.
- Q. Hello, I'm a fugitive from Florida for a case in Dade County, 1997. Please advise if Justia can help.
- A: Because the case is from 1997, not only might the Statute of limitations be a problem, but the discovery, the information the State needs to prosecute you may have been lost. I would contact an attorney in Dade, hire that attorney and have the attorney contact the Assistant State Attorney that would be assigned to your case and have them ask the Assistant State Attorney, if they have the discovery to prosecute.
- Q. Police came to my nephew school and took his cell phone questioned him about a murder and his parents weren’t there
- A: The police need a search warrant before they can access your nephew's phone, unless they have permission to search from the owner of the phone. I would hire an attorney immediately even if he has not been charged.
