    Hire an attorney.

    That being said, probably shouldn't have handled the situation yourself. It was a civil contract that was breeched, so a lawsuit would have been better than your self help.

  • Is it better to request a blood test when charged for a DUI ?

    The relationship between citizen and police is at an all time low these days. It seems like the police would rather lie on arrest affidavit to make themselves look good, and to get credit or a promotion in the long run at the expense of an innoce...

    Tiffany’s Answer

    You can always ask for a blood test. Most likely it is not practical and won't happen. BUT, it would look better than a flat out refusal to a jury at trial.

    I don't see why not. There is no expectation of privacy in this situation.

    Sounds circumstantial. Also sounds like you may get hit with a blood draw DUI later on down the road depending on what else happened that night. You should talk with a lawyer asap. Most of us offer free consultations and getting into the facts a bit more will give you a better idea about what to expect.

  • Failed a drug test on PTI, It was a Felony for Grand theft, So what might happen to me?

    Went today and they tested me and I tested positive. I have never smoked and the officer told me she had problems with the test all day because she had to send in a bunch for people who had never tested positive before. But I think she was just sa...

    Tiffany’s Answer

    I'm with the general consensus. Your best bet for staying in PTI or being re-referred is to get an independent lab test done ASAP!! You may get kicked out, but a negative test and an attorney might get you back in.

  • What is the most likely outcome for vop charge?

    My boyfriend is on probation (with no restrictions) for robbery. He has been on it for 6 months with no issues (this is his first offense and he's 25)... he just got rearrested on domestic violence battery charges. I am the victim and refused to p...

    Tiffany’s Answer

    VOPs are different. They can go forward without a victim testifying and the burden of proof is a lot lower than a regular criminal case. Depending on several factors which require information about history and Discovery, the Prosecutor can decide to go forward or drop the VOP. Because of his prior case and new charges, he will not get a bond.

    He needs a lawyer to help him get out of this mess. He faces up to the maximum on the original offense.

  • Can I get my charge changed?

    In 2011 I was arrested for driving on a suspended license. I went to court, plead no contest and got NO VALID DL and adjudicated guilty, which is a conviction. Is there any way I can get that charged changed with no conviction? The job I am trying...

    Tiffany’s Answer

    Did you have an attorney? Were you advised of what that meant? The only way you can 'fix' this at this point is to try to withdraw your plea. Of course, that means opening up the case and the result may not even change depending on your history.

    You need to consult with an attorney to find out if this is worth pursuing or look for employment at a location that doesn't mind the criminal traffic conviction.

  • How can I have my record expunged or stricken for "petit theft?"

    I did not have enough for my cab fare a few years ago so I paid the cabby what I had and left. It wasn't enough for what the meter read so apparently he called 911. I was never arrested and no warrant for arrest was every issued, even after going ...

    Tiffany’s Answer

    Assuming you have no other crimes or convictions, this type of offense is eligible to be sealed and expunged. You can access the FDLE checklist online and check with your local clerk or the Florida Bar Criminal Procedure manual for info on how to DIY. OR you can hire competent counsel to handle it all for you.

    Tiffany’s Answer

    Hate to break the news to you, but this is a policy with the State Attorney's Office in Orange County. The Prosecutors will not refer any employee theft case to diversion, period. It doesn't matter if you hire private counsel or stay with your court appointed attorney, you are most likely going to be offered probation, community service, and restitution for your "stupid thing."

  • Can you legally be arrested if you were not mirandized

    Police report said officer did mirandize but they did not. Found misdemeanor drugs because they said it smelled like and went to searching. Also no cameras to back up their story of miranda, only there "good" word, they only said you're going to b...

    Tiffany’s Answer

    Yes, you can absolutely be arrested without being read Miranda. Depending on the facts, any statement could be suppressed if the judge determines Miranda didn't happen or wasn't voluntarily waived. As for the search, keep in mind that the law allows for a search whenever an officer smells the 'odor of cannabis.'
