In 2009 I was going through a hard time my sister told me to come stay with her in Columbus Oh. I came up from FL to see how things would go and they did not work out I was told she had 13 evictions in my name recently I had to go to court because the FWC gave me a fine for a fish that was two in...

It wouldn’t be the first time that a sister/brother used the identity of a sibling during an arrest. You’ll need to run an FDLE records check and find out where the DUI occurred, then work on getting it off your record. An attorney can assist you. Good luck.
Often police over-weigh/estimate weight of drugs to make the charge more serious, or they weigh the drugs with the packaging creating a heavier result. Eventually, the lab will settle the discrepancy, or the State will reduce the charge to a lesser quantity. There are different sentencing levels...Read more »
Person A Lent Person B his car, but Person B lied about his identity, and thus does not actually have permission to drive the car, and is not on the registration or insurance. What happens if he gets pulled over?
If a police report is filed for auto theft, the person may be arrested. The police report should identify the name of the person to whom the car should have been loaned to, and the identity of the person who took the car by false pretenses, if known.
It sounds like they are charging you with a gun charge in addition to the narcotics charge. The charges are not merged, they’re just heard at the same time. I don’t know all the facts of your case, but it’s possible that the charges stemmed from the same incident.

And no longer lives in state. He was offered 90 days. Can he somehow get this thrown out. He was arrested on 11/8/20 on new unrelated charges and was told the battery charge has to be taken care before he can have a bond on new charges
None of us can tell you if there are grounds to "throw the case out". That will be up to his attorney, not online lawyers answering general legal questions. Not being in Florida doesn't help his situation, but a 90 day offer on a misdemeanor battery charge tells me there's more...Read more »

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 »
It’s a pandemic, not plandemic. Tell the judge you’re not very bright and you forgot that you were charged with a crime. Maybe she’ll feel sorry for you and give you time to hire a lawyer, or she will appoint a public defender.
