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?

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?

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.

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 have a warrant out for probation violation... How much time do they usually give you for that?

I was on probation for a misdemeanor charge and I didn't get all my fines paid in time. I also didn't get my anger management classes done because I didn't have the money. How much time do you usually spend in jail for this?

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.

Q: What do I need to do to be able to carry a gun with me for protection without breaking any laws?

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. zlawfirmfl.com
