Even those that are "guilty as sin" deserve an advocate in order for our legal system to function. No attorney that regularly practices in criminal defense can say he or she has never defended a client that committed the charge.
Often times, the role of a defense attorney is to present mitigating circumstances to negotiate a plea deal. Imagine, what if those that are "clearly guilty" weren't entitled to an attorney and the prosecution had unfettered discretion to decide what the sentence...
The short answer to your questions is yes, you may still be charged with possession of contraband found when you were not present and that which doe snot have your fingerprints. In Florida, possession is defined as knowledge and control - you need not be in actual possession to be found guilty. The prosecution can establish those two elements through other evidence - perhaps the testimony of a cooperating co-defendant or a confidential informant. This does not mean you do not have defenses...
Your question indicates that you have an attorney - you should really be talking with him or her. If a witness disobeys a subpoena for a deposition, the attorney can seek an order to show cause from the court requiring the witness to appear before the judge and give cause why he or she should not be held in contempt of court for disobeying the subpoena.
You should at least consult with an attorney to more thoroughly discuss your options.
If these are outstanding tickets that you have not begun to pay, by paying the tickets you are admitting to the violations and a conviction will be entered on your driving history. Paying several tickets at once can cause your driver's license to be suspended because of points. On the other side, if you fail to pay a ticket or request a hearing, the court may suspend your driving privilege anyway.
Depending on what the charge was, you may be eligible to have record sealed. Once the record is sealed, you can lawfully fail to acknowledge or deny the arrest ever occurred, with some exceptions. Also, once the record is sealed, the FCIC/NCIC databases should be updated to remove the offense.
You should talk to an attorney in your area. Generally speaking, the Statute of limitations on a 2nd Degree misdemeanor is 1 year. It sounds like the State might have difficulty in proceeding in the case. There are a lot of factors that the Court can consider in whether the State executed the summons without reasonable delay. An attorney in your area will be able to discuss all of these factors with you and decide on the best course of action.
If your landlord has given you the statutory three day demand to pay rent or vacate the premises, your options are to pay the rent owed or vacate the premises. If you do neither, the landlord can file an eviction action to have you removed. It matters not that the bank has filed a foreclosure suit, as the landlord remains the owner of the property until it is sold at auction and a certificate of title is issued by the clerk.
You should definitely hire an attorney in your area that is familiar with real estate and bankruptcy proceedings. It will be money well spent.
There is no easy answer to your question without knowing a lot more information. It depends on what type of bankruptcy filing, when it was initiated, how the property was titled, etc. Please consult with a local attorney experienced in this area.
You should definitely consult with an attorney. A speeding ticket for 30 or more over the speed limit carries a $250 fine, plus court costs. You could also face additional sanctions such as driving school or a license suspension.
