  • Shoplifting

    I told the police I've only shop lifted once when I have a couple times, will they find out?

    Regina’s Answer

    The police have access to your record at all times. If you have priors, then the police probably knew. The police do routine warrant and records checks whenever they make contact with potential suspects.

  • False Assault Charges...

    Is there anything I can do when my ex files for a false DV "assault charges" a second time. First time, case got dismissed. Long story short, she is doing everything she can think of to keep me from having any custody or visitation time with my ...

    Regina’s Answer

    The only way you can avoid any making false allegations against you is to avoid all in person contact with that person, unless you take another person with you. Arrange to have someone else pick up your kids. If you have to have personal contact always meet in a very public place with lots of people around.

  • Officer pulled me over and seen marijuana shake on my wallet .. floorboards and found a mini roach .. gave me notice to appear..

    What do you think will happen in court if i plead no contest... should i hire a attorney?

    Regina’s Answer

    Itis impossible to know what you will get. Your sentence will be determined by several things, like your record, your judge etc. Hiring the right attorney will result in the best possible outcomefor you. A drug conviction could affect you in the future and if you are adjudicated, your driver's license will be suspended for two years.

    Hire an attorney right away and stop discussing the facts of your case in this forum. I have never heard of Ruskin, but I bet it is pretty small. It will not be hard to figure out who you are.

  • Delivery within 1000ft of a park

    It was 1000ft of a school but the charge was changed to a park, how significate that, when it comes to the prosicution case, and does the fact that i was in a hotel parking lot help me at all?

    Regina’s Answer

    Both charges are first degree felonies punishable by 30 years with a three year minimum mandatory. The difference between the two charges is that the state must prove that the delivery occurred between 6:00 am and 12:00 am to enhance the charge with the school provision. But the delivery can occur at any time to enhance the charge using the park provision.

  • Can I get a traffic ticket changed after it was paid due to being given false information and if so how?

    I received a ticket for driving while unknowingly suspended license, due to the fact that I switched insurance companies and my old insurance company reported me to the state for no insurance but I had it with the new company. I was told by the of...

    Regina’s Answer

    When did you pay the ticket? If you received a ticket in 2007 and paid it in 2010, then the points would show up when you paid the ticket and not when you received the ticket. If you paid the ticket in 2010, you may be able to go back to court have the sentence amended. You have two years from the date the ticket was paid. You will need a lawyer to handle this matter. Consult with a local attorney right away.

    Regina’s Answer

    Your friend should report this to the police, so that there is some record of the threats. Also your friend should consult with an attorney for the purpose of file an injunction for protection against this woman. He should make an effort to keep all texts and phone messages that are threatening.

  • Have a fiend that did not finish his probation after a DUI 20 years ago.. I don't know much about circumstances.

    He wants a Florida ID, he will be 69 this year. Will this catch up with him NOW ?

    Regina’s Answer

    Tell your friend to call a bondmen and the bondsmen will tell him if there is a warrant for his arrest. Sometimes they purge misdemeanor warrants, so there may not be one. If there is he should hire counsel to help deal with the warrant. The attorney may be able to help your friend avoid jail time.

    Regina’s Answer

    You qualify for the services of a public defender. When you go to court ask for an attorney and the court will appoint the public defender's office. You need to stop driving. The third driving with a suspended license charge can be made a felony, if you meet certain criteria.
