Yes, it could be true. You can hire a lawyer to investigate the matter for you. If there is a warrant for your arrest then your lawyer can arrange with a bondsperson to have you do a 'walk-through' at the jail. A 'walk-through' is when you turn yourself in to the jail but the...Read more »
My ex boyfriend, the father of my son, filed a lawsuit against me in regards to our son but he didn’t fill out the paperwork himself, his landlady did. And she didn’t fill out the “If a non lawyer helped fill out this form...” portion of any of the petitions. She admitted via text to... Read more »
Subpoena her to the Court hearing so she can tell the judge. If the court hearing has already taken place, call the judge's judicial assistant and let her know, see if yo can get a re-hearing and bring it up to the judge.
Well, if you have not done so already, do NOT commit any new crimes. That said, Florida's PRR statute will not cause you to serve more time in South Carolina for a crime committed in South Carolina. However, South Carolina may have a statute that will enhance a crime committed there based on...Read more »
The gun has not been recovered as of yet but all info regarding the gun has been reported to lake county sheriff's department as lost/stolen. Trying to see what my liabilities are if I chose not to press charges against him. Or if I will be forced to do so.
Depends what you mean by 'press charges'. The State will prosecute if they see fit, whether or not the victim wants the defendant prosecuted. For example, person A may punch person B in the face, and person B calls the police. Person B later decides he does not want the State to...Read more »
Got pulled was searched me and my ole man hunt old bottles well we found one old and it was an old medicine bottle. They found it went to there truck out of sight from us and field tested it. Said it was positive for meth. We really don't know if it was or not we weren't able to observe.... Read more »
They do not have to perform the test in your presence. However, you may have a search and seizure issue. I agree with the other lawyers who have answered your question - you need to consult with an experienced defense attorney
You need to talk to your attorney. A plan to put you in Foster care would be considered 'mitigation', or, part of an argument to have the judge 'go easy' on you. You would need to provide proof that your current living situation is bad enough to need changing. Talk to your attorney.
Someone else had a safe in their vehicle and they were pulled over and told the police it was mine . They police came snd picked me up for the drugs and money in the safe. The key to the safe was not in my possession it was on the ground on of a storage unit I was standing in which also was in... Read more »
If you were with someone else in the storage room you have a good argument that you were not in possession of the key. There must be more evidence against you if a warrant was issued, but it sounds thin
My ex wife has filed multiple false allegations against me since 2014, dcf cases, injunctions, and trying to modify child arrangements. Each report says something different, and none of them have gone in her favor meaning I have been lucky enough for a judge not to believe her. This time she is... Read more »
You would need to establish what is called an 'affirmative defense'. Basically, you would need to admit you committed the crime but that you did so because there existed a real threat of imminent harm to yourself or another unless you committed the crime. See Florida Jury Instruction...Read more »
I read somewhere that in Florida you only serve 85% of your sentence so I don’t really know if that works in this situation I’m just looking for some good news that he might be out sooner than 9 months. He was on probation but violated it and he waived his 44 day good time credit.
Looks like he was on probation, so he might have already served jail time for the initial arrest. He will get credit for that time as well as whatever time he has served on the VOP. County jails give 5 days per month for good time served, so yes, he has a chance of getting out sooner than 9...Read more »
Defendant was arrested for a dui and out on bond, was re arrested for felony domestic battery and his bond was revoked. Defendant went to court and was granted a bond reduction. Is he able to get out of jail now on bail?
If he was 'out on bond' for DUI and the bond was revoked because he was arrested on a DV Batt charge, then he cannot get out of jail until he gets a bond on the DUI charge. Your question was not clear as to which case received the 'bond reduction'. If the bond reduction was...Read more »
Absolutely. See Florida Statute 921.0026. Actually, you can request a downward departure even if you do not fit exactly into the departures listed in the statute. That is hard to do, but technically it is possible. But if you fit into 4 of the listed departures, then you are in good shape....Read more »

Yes, you can sue her. She offered the puppy, you accepted the offer, and provided her with consideration in the form of money, and you also took the action of neutering your dog based on her reassurance.
