    Your case should be expunged. I cannot comment on what the apartment complex will say about the criminal charge, or if they will even look for it. However, this record may prevent you from obtaining employment or getting other opportunities. As such, you should strongly consider the expungement. That process is relatively inexpensive compared to opportunities lost. My firm is willing to discuss this matter with you in a free office consult. Feel free to contact us at your convenience.

    No. You can have the time for a speedy trial expire (90 days for misdemeanor and 175 for felony) If that happens, the defendant can file a Notice of expiration of speedy trial. The court Must then have a hearing on the matter and set the case for trial all within 15 days. A demand for Speedy says that the defendant is ready for trial and the court then has a hearing and sets the matter for trial within 60 days. The demand can be filed prior to the speedy trial time noted above having expired.

    There are many options. These include everything from having the charges dropped to serving jail time. Because of your age and the fact that it is a first time offense, you need to talk to an attorney. The goal will be to have the charges dropped outright or through a diversion program. Feel free to contact me for a free consultation.

    This will be an uphill battle. I agree with my colleague as to the need for an attorney. As the victim, you and the children have certain rights. Please contact a local attorney to assist you. Good luck.

    You should consult with an attorney immediately. If you are waiting for sentencing, there may be much to do. You may even want to try to withdraw your plea.

    If you were told the truth and the information is not forwarded to the State, you will have no record. The civil remedy is pursuant to statute. The store may choose to pusue the criminal charge if the civil suit is ignored. In either case, if you need additional assistance feel free to contact me for a free consult.

    Each county is different. You might have to performe some community service or be on probation. One alternative is a Diversion program. However, let's not forget that you may have defenses. Always consult with an attorney before accepting any offer. Most importantly, if you are adjudicated guilty, you will have a two-year DL suspension. For a free consult, contact my office.

    It sounds like the state does not have a case against you if they are willing to offer such a good deal. Try to talk to a local attorney in court tomorrow. Otherwise, ask if the offer can be left open for one week, and talk to an attorney during that time.

    I think what you are asking is whether statutory rape would apply. As long as there is no sex of any kind, it is not illegal.

    As a former prosecutor, I can tell you that each case and each defendant are considered individually. There is no formula to be used. This case can be upgraded to a felony. More importantly, you should know that Florida has a victim's bill of rights. You should talk to the State attorney's office and ask to speak to the victim advocate. If you do not understand your rights as a victim, you are entitled to be represented as a victim.
