Generally, any requirement that one exhaust administrative remedies would not be satisfied by a motion filed in the court proceeding. The court is not an administrative body. Such a requirement probably doesn't apply in any event.
Not correct, strictly speaking. A lawyer is someone who is learned in the law. That would include someone who has a law degree. An attorney, on the other hand, is someone who is licensed to practice law in a particular state, and for that the person has to have passed a bar examination.

I've posed this question multiple times here and other places and none have yet to actually answer the question being presented :(. An officer read the following line, "if you cannot afford one, one will be provided for you without charge". The suspect replied with the question,... View More
I live in Florida. Can I record the phone conversation with multiple customer service representative (within the same single call) of a large bank, if prior to speaking with customer service I receive a notice that "This call will be monitored and recorded"?
Yes, because the other party to the call is asking your consent to have it be a recorded call (by making recording a condition of being able to speak to that party). But if you plan to use the recording for anything other than your own private listening, you...View More

The phrase "not to possess intoxicants to excess" doesn't make much sense. If you possess alcohol but don't drink it, what would be excessive? I think it means that you should not CONSUME intoxicants to excess.
Assuming you are on probation, you probably could be...View More
Sorry to hear about your ordeal. Your inquiry is vague as to when the abuses occurred. You mention, without relating any facts about timing, the phrase "tolling statute of limitations", which is the stopping of the clock for the time counting towards the limitations period, under...View More
And they don't give an answer, isn't it safe to say that you couldn't have knowingly and intelligently waived your rights because you didn't know you could have an attorney for free if you couldn't pay for one? Further, doesn't it also mean you didn't understand your warning in simplified form
I plead no contest, and took the plea deal of time served (18 days).
Before the arrest, during the time in jail, and for 5 years afterwards, I was severely mentally ill (scrizophernia, bipolar disorder medications). Now I that my medication have been updated, I feel sane enough to be a... View More
Sorry to hear about your ordeal. It is possible to file a motion to withdraw a plea due to the plea being involuntary because of mental incompetence. However, due to the number of years going by and the (I assume) availability of the police report at all times, I believe you'd be facing very...View More
In Florida, if you were incarcerated for an extended period due to false convictions noted in your Pre-Sentence Report (PSR), you may have grounds to pursue legal action against the Bureau of Prisons (BOP). However, suing a federal agency like the BOP involves complex legal challenges, including...View More
Fedex delivered me multiple packages that I was helping a friend with. Within the 5 packages I received, one wasn't supposed to be delivered to me but I didn't realize it because they all looked the same. have them all to my friend when he came and he traveled back to his state.... View More
Don't necessarily believe what the FedEx driver told you about a search warrant. It's really none of her business. But if Homeland Security does get a judge to issue a warrant, simply tell them, as you indicate, that you don't have the package. Be ready for them to search your premises.
In Florida, if you are under 18, your ability to influence criminal charges, especially those filed by someone else, like your mother, is limited. Since you're 17, you're considered a minor, and typically, the decision to pursue or drop charges in a criminal case is up to the prosecutor,...View More
You would have to show that the statute of limitations doesn't apply. What do you mean by indicating that you just found out about the kidnapping? Perhaps you might have a case, of you can prove that the owner was negligent, and that the negligence caused injury to you.
