    Yes you can sue. Look for a lawyer who handles "violation of civil rights". They should not charge you, but will take a percentage of the recovery. Good luck, Mark

    Your attorney can appear for you at Arraignment and waive your appearance. It's even possible that your attorney can handle this case before your Arraignment, depending on the evidence. Sometimes the alleged victim does not want to prosecute, and may provide a "Declination of Prosecution". If that is the case the State may not want to proceed. You can leave the county legally, unless your bond or the first appearance judge put restrictions on your travel. Good luck, Mark

    Normally the misdemeanor has to be witnesses by the officer, though exceptions may apply. The police report should have all the information. If you have any questions just call our office and we will be happy to review the report. Good luck, Mark

  4. My boyfriend ( my Childs father) was charged with felony battery.

    His attorney should file a Motion to Modify Pretrial Release and have you testify As Ophelia has stated in her answer. The benefit of the Motion is it allows the Judge to see that you don't want to prosecute and that the case is still pending only because the prosecutor wants it to proceed. I have an office in Tavares and if you have any questions feel free to contact me. 352-253-0333. Please mention that you found us from AVVO. Good luck, Mark

    I agree with John. He runs a substantial risk of becoming a convicted felon. Moreover, the prosecutor will want to make sure the alleged victim gets restitution. It's possible to get the charges reduced or even diverted. Good luck, Mark

  8. What does it mean when it says that the Prosecutors only had 175 day from day of arrest to present a case.

    Answered almost 5 years ago.

    It means that the accused's speedy trial rights would be violated if they waited until the 176th day. Be advised the 175 that you mention only applies to felony cases in adult court. For misdemeanors the state has to bring the case to trial within 90 days of arrest. Another factor to consider is whether formal charges have been filed. If the state never filed the defendant is entitled to have the case Discharged. If the state filed but it has not been brought to trial and the Defendant...

    He may win his case but the chances of "dismissal" are very slim. To dismiss a case, your husband will have to swear that all the facts in the police reports are true, but they do not make a "prima facie" case against him. This is a quick summary of 3.190(c)(4) of the Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure. It appears that it will come down to the issue of which side is more believable. Hopefully, there is no physical evidence at the scene that would implicate your husband, such as...

    Please note that you are committing a second degree felony when you give a prescription pain pill to your son. Be careful in the future. He may be reinstated to a longer term of probation as the court had 12 months to use and just gave 6. Good luck, Mark
