    If you had been arrested for the offense then the prosecutor would need to enter a dismissal. However, if an arrest is never made and no citation is ever issued and the prosecutor decides not to pursue the case then he would not need to do anything but close the case internally.

    I would let sleeping dogs lie. Currently there is not any official documentation that has ever been filed against you and I assume that you would like it to remain that way. If you file a motion to dismiss, there will in fact be a notation in the clerk's system regarding your case. Should the citation appear and you are summoned to court, hire an attorney and they should be able to get the criminal citation dismissed.

    An attorney may be able to file a bond motion and if granted you would be able to fight the vop out if custody. Additionally your attorney may file a motion dismissing the vop if it is apparent that there were defects associated with the violation.

    Florida statutes provide for the ability to buyout your probation at $10 per hour. However, not all Judges will allow for you to exercise this provision of the statute. If the Judge has not already indicated at sentencing that you can buy out your community service, you should contact your attorney and request that a motion be filed to allow you to buyout your community service.

    If you are being charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, you need to be speaking with an attorney as soon as possible. I am not here to scare you, but you are quite possible looking at a three year mandatory minimum prison sentence. If you would like to discuss the facts of your case please feel free to contact my office. It is truly imperative for you to have counsel.

    Always be courteous to the probation officer. If your cousin has papers that the PO needs to see, make sure that she shows them the paperwork. It is always my advice to my clients who are on probation that they should bore their PO to death. You don't want to be the one that they single out.

    You are being charged with three felony charges. By entering a plea to any offense you are subject to deportation. This is considered an aggravated felony as far as immigration consequences are concerned. You need to not only hire a criminal lawyer but you also need to consult with an immigration attorney as well.

    The max sentence you could get is five years for each third degree felony. In your case that adds up to 30 years. It is not likely you would get sentence for a violation of probation for a dwls but question asked for the max sentence.
