In a Florida DUI case, a defendant can’t have an adjudication of guilt and a dismissal on the same charge. It sounds like you were convicted of a DUI. It’s possible that another charge that accompanied the DUI was dismissed, such as a traffic infraction. It’s difficult to answer this...Read more »
Provided the message was not a string of repeated contacts, I wouldn’t think one message classified as stalking or harassment. Good that you blocked him. Stay off IG if you can’t resist the urge to look at his profile.

The person called me and advised I would like to give them the phone back but I asked if they could at least give me... Read more »
From a technical standpoint, Mr. O'Sullivan might be right. From a practical standpoint, in light of recent events across the world and the US, will the the police took the time and effort to move to prosecute you.

Not sure about your specific question. If LE has an arrest warrant they can enter your home to execute it without your permission or consent. Same holds true for a search warrant, though most are “knock and announce”.
If you’re arrested again, expect your bond to be revoked on the...Read more »

Someone posted an extremely large cash bail for me in Florida ($20k+). They are worried that NJ child support will try and take the bail money. They are considering rescinding the bail before court. The charge is completely unrelated to child support. The person did have to sign something stating... Read more »
I’d be very surprised if a NJ child support judgment could reach a FLORIDA criminal bail bond, particularly when you’re not even the depositor. The fines and costs they’re talking about relate to the criminal case you’re out on bond for.

This is a contractual matter between you and the rental car company. They all make you sign off that you will be the only driver of the car, or you must list another driver by name. The wiggle area is if you have another person covered on your insurance policy. What if there is a crash and you...Read more »
I don't understand how a "corrupt judge" translates into suing the DA, unless you're alleging they conspired with one another. There may be grounds to re-open the case, though the passage of time is a great obstacle.
Fla. Stat. § 790.06(12) prohibits CWFL holders from carrying lethal weapons or firearms on "any college or university facility". The statute does not specify whether this applies only to public/community colleges and universities. Does this prohibition also apply to private universities? Can... Read more »
