The judge can only sentence on a VOP for the max time that the misdemeanor carries. I don’t know what “felony house arrest” is per se or how it differs from being placed on HA for a misdemeanor VOP.

It's always best to have an attorney assist you. Depending on the case, you may be able to get the warrant quashed without surrendering. Your lawyer can assist you with digging up the out-of-county citations and help take care of them for you.
From the question, it is impossible to answer: if you received an order from an appellate court saying the appeal of the denial of your Rule 3.850 motion was untimely, the notice of appeal likely wasn't filed within 30 days of the trial court order denying your Rule 3.850 motion.

While the instigator could be charged with a number of different charges, depending on the circumstances, your verbal response to the threat indicates only that you will defend yourself with deadly force if attacked with deadly force. I don’t think you can be charged with a crime for the words....Read more »

There are a lot of missing facts here making it impossible to answer your question. Is the trust revocable or irrevocable? Is your interest vested or unvested? Who is the trustee now? Who will be the trustee when the grantor dies? What is your relationship to the trustee? Are distributions...Read more »
A family member got drug court for his first felony in Florida, but has about 10 other drug or theft related felonies in Michigan. Can the judge find out about these and decide to not allow drug court? He's been in it for about a month and is nervous.
I have carried an knife on me as an everyday item when I leave the house for nearly a decade.

You are correct that you need an attorney. The lawyer will,hopefully, find out why police stopped you. You may be surprised to learn that the stop may be OK even if you did nothing wrong. The police have to establish whether they had reasonable suspicion or probable cause. The lawyer can review...Read more »

That's a terrible situation to be in. And I'm sorry they had you pay all of that money just to be told that you have to appear before a judge. In any event, you will probably get a better answer if you post the question in the "PA" law forum instead of Florida....Read more »
