    Corey’s Answer

    It is also possible that he does not have any information yet if it's just the first pre trial so I would not worry too much yet. Especially with a serious case things take time.

  • Will this case be dropped for domestic violence?

    Corey’s Answer

    Sounds like a strong possibility but you would want to hire a criminal defense attorney so that you can fill out a declination of prosecution and that attorney can make sure the proper prosecutor gets it before they make a decision to file charges. It will also depend on whenever or not you made any incriminating statements to the police and if there were any injuries and were pictures taken. Best advice is to call a lawyer to assist you with this matter. It could easily go away if you hire the right lawyer.

    A person (with a criminal record-spent 6 months in jail for VOP within this past year) on probation is charged with battery and violation of probation with no bond being afforded during the first appearance. The battery charge is being dropped pri...

    Corey’s Answer

    Sure all of those are options but the pubic defender would have to file a bond motion for the court to consider it. Reinstatement is also always an option but that depends on the prior record and what the basis for the vop is.

  • Battery vs Resisting

    Is battery on a leo or resisting an officer with violence worse in the state of Florida?

    Corey’s Answer

    I agree with Beth on the PRR consequence. Otherwise they are very similar, however I think you are more likely to get a resisting with violence reduced to a misdemeanor then you would battery on a law enforcement officer.

    Corey’s Answer

    Depends on the facts of your case if the prosecutor offers it. Go to the arraignment and see if they offer it. If they do not then get a lawyer to talk to prosecutor about it.

    Corey’s Answer

    It is hard to say without knowing if there is a video or not. Hire an attorney who can then get all the evidence from the prosecutor and go from there. However, no one should guarantee a dismissal because they would be lying. If it goes to trial the only person who makes that decision if the Judge or the Jury not the attorney.
