You would want to work with his lawyer to file a motion to turn the no contact provision into a no hostile contact. Then you'd want his lawyer to help you prepare a statement that says you don't want to prosecute etc. Which county is he charged in?

If the state attorney is already prosecuting the case, any plea offer or sentence to be imposed will involve restitution being paid back to you. Call the state attorney and get a status on where the case is as far as being resolved or going to trial.

It sounds like you are talking about an administrative suspension against your license, not a criminal charge. You are not a felon because of anything the DMV does to you. Have you been arrested or given a court date in Circuit Court?

Q: A friend got caught with a gram of marijuana in Florida. He has a prior record from a few years ago.

He was not arrested and didn't recieve a citation but now received a letter in the mail for court. Any idea what he will be offered for the charge?

Justin Gary Hausler
Justin Gary Hausler answered on Jan 5, 2018

It's going to depend on the county and the outcome of that previous charge. Some counties have "decriminalized" small amounts of marijuana by deciding to decline to prosecute and issue municipal citations instead. He/She should get a consultation in the county where the incident is pending.

If you were given any time sharing rights whatsoever, and those are being ignored, you have a motion for contempt.... Read more »
