Hi, I'm Zach. I’m writing in an attempt to help a close friend get released ASAP from jail due to the impending threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. I understand that many nonviolent offenders are being released. He has a serious medical condition, Hepatitis-C which has not been treated since his... Read more »

It's a fairly complex answer for chain of custody, but start with Section 90.901 Florida Statute (Evidence Code). A good case to review is State v. Hampton, 44 so. 3d 661. You can find it on Google Scholar for free (just google the state v. Hampton, 44 so. 3d 661) if this link doesn't show up in...Read more »
Nothing, but I would imagine that the person you struck will probably file charges. The charges will be dependent on whether the state attorney believes the allegations that will be made against.

She emailed me that now she wants no more contact from me. Can I still mail her back the $40 with no letter or anything else... Read more »

I am not sure what your question is. If I understand your ramblings, you should contact Local Law Enforcement and report the allegations that you have concerning this lawyer or anyone who is engaging in the type of conduct that you are suggesting.
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.
My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida. I work as Uber driver and a customer left their phone in my car. I contacted Uber so I could get a hold of the person. 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 »
I have good reason to suspect that something "shady" is going on with my attorney. If I bring my "non-essential third-party" fiance' to a meeting with my attorney, thus waiving attorney-client privelege, can that conversation be secretly recorded without violating the "two-party consent rule" in...

Florida is a "two-party-consent" state, and it is a felony to record an oral conversation with someone during an in-person communication if they have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Meaning, if you recorded the lawyer in his/her office or somewhere they think is private, without permission,...Read more »
