    I'll need to know a bit more about your background before I can answer that, but the RPO charge is a class 2 misdemeanor, and the drunk and disorderly is a class 3. That said, you can probably work out a deal considering the circumstances. Contact an attorney as soon as possible.

    Obviously, we need to know a bit more information before we can give a realistic outlook on the case. That said, I think this case is going to be heavily driven by some very specific facts. Mr. McGee has the right idea with taking pictures of the scene and gathering all that information for a meeting with an attorney. DWI law is tricky to say the least - you definitely need to hire counsel. Good luck.

    Just like the other lawyers said, you'll need to check out the Honduran laws. That said, even if it is legal in Honduras, your permit from that country isn't going to nullify any laws here - so don't bring your gun to the States.

    I would look at the statute that requires him to register (either as a habitual felon or a sex offender) for the regulations. If there's ever any question about registration, I would err on the side of caution and say to register than to risk it and not. FL DOC would also likely be able to assist you with questions about it.

    Habitual DWLSR is a third degree felony - punishable by up to 5 years. That said, it's a low level felony and usually doesn't score out to prison, but that depends on your record. A probation violation probably still wouldn't score prison, but again, that would depend on your record and the type of violation (technical v. picking up a new charge, etc.) Contact a local attorney for a consult.

    My experience with casino debt is that they will likely seek to get a civil judgment against you and collect the debt that way. Speak with a local attorney that specializes in consumer debt defense and/or bankruptcy.

  7. Cops have held my property from a raid to my home/investigation over a year now. No charges or anything - how do I get forward?

    I agree with Mr. Sullivan. You could even start at the police department who has your things impounded and ask them exactly what they need to release it. You will need a motion and order from the court, though. It's just a matter of making sure you're doing everything right in order to get your stuff back. Make sure you are specific in your motion and order as to what pieces of property they took and need to return. Good luck.

    It's actually pretty hard for the State to impeach you if you just say you don't remember and actually mean it. There's nothing much you can do if you can't remember - sometimes it's a fact of life. Frankly, I think it happens more than a lot of witnesses let on. However, like the other attorneys have stated, if you feel uncomfortable, you can always ask the court to appoint an attorney or have an attorney speak with you as a "friend of the court." Good luck.

  9. Can a waiver of the right to a court appointed attorney be retracted in NC?

    Here's how it works in most courts in NC: at first appearance they ask your son one of three options: 1) hire his own attorney; 2) get court appointed counsel; or 3) represent himself. Those are the only three options. If your son doesn't have enough money to retain private counsel, he can represent himself (which I strongly don't recommend), or seek court-appointed counsel. Court appointed counsel in NC isn't entirely free, it is added on to the court costs at the end of the case....
