Cape Coral, FL asked in Criminal Law for Florida

Q: If a person was charge for a crime he committed two days prior. And the court records say he did it on the 27th..

but, the actual crime took place on the 24th, would he still be responsible.. meaning.. if you punched someone on the 24th.. but the court records for years say your crime took place on the 27th.. Do you have a case to set the record straight and sue for false records of being accused on the wrong date. I have a son doing a lot of time for his crime. . but all these years, it was told wrong.. and someone just point me out the real date.
