This is a domestic violence case involving my 20 yr old daughter. The judge imposed the order in the beginning and said it would add to his charges if violated. He calls her from prison daily violating the order. Can she get in trouble by taking these calls? These calls are coming to her cell phone... Read more »
You should notify the State Attorney that he's calling and violating the Order. Keep a record of the calls. Your daughter should not speak with him, but if she does the only thing she should say is "don't call me". Inmate calls from jails are recorded, so there will be a record.
How do you forget that you have been charged with a crime? Does it happen so often that you lose track of your cases? The night before court, you’re asking for advice? What a mess you are. Tell the judge you’re stupid, which won’t be difficult for her to agree with, and request a postponement...Read more »

I wouldn't try to play lawyer (unless you are one) by parsing statutes, just like I won't perform surgery after reading a medical textbook. Hire an attorney to go over this issue in specific detail. Good Luck.
Lawyers shouldn’t be posting fee quotes in this forum. I suggest that you contact individual lawyers directly to obtain that information.

Despite the tolling of the Speedy Trial Rule 3.191 by the Florida Supreme Court, you may have an argument for dismissal under "constitutional speedy trial". Six months isn't quite long enough, though and you're not in custody. Speak with your lawyer about your options.
You probably won't get a court appointed lawyer, unless the State certifies they are seeking a jail sentence if convicted. That said, retained lawyers for these low level cases, with no priors, will cost you much more than the likely value of the items from Walmart. Generally, unrepresented...Read more »
