Got in an altercation with a friend three weeks ago in Mexico and ended up at the police station. Two days ago got in another fight with the same guy in Florida and cops showed up. My question is whether a foreign police report can be recognized ...
No. The Mexican report is hearsay and not admissible. It also may not be relevant, but is for sure hearsay.See question
We he be charged for resisting? Resisting when you think your being mugged?
The laws in New York are different than in Florida. But here in Florida the cops must identify themselves either by their uniform or patrol car orsaying something like "stop police!" Before a person could be convicted of resisting an officer.See question

If you are a Florida resident, you are required to have a Florida drivers licence and register your vehicle in Florida. You can check with Florida DHSMV to see if they will issue you a valid DL, a business purpose only license, or if your driving privilege is suspended in Florida, in which case you will get an ID card only. Try to get this straightened out as soon as you can. Many jurisdictions in Florida will give you jail time if are caught driving while on an alcohol suspension.See question

Yes. Any person can be an expert depending on their training and their experience. Bill Gates who founded Microsoft famously doesn't have a college degree but is certainly an expert in computers. Talk to your public defender about your chances of winning an appeal. Also you can talk to a private lawyer that specializes in criminal appeals to see if you have a good case to appeal.See question

Yes absolutely you need a attorney for a probation violation. If the judge finds that you violated probation you could easily be sentenced to jail or prison. Hire a attorney to help you on your VOP as soon as you can. An appeal is a separate issue and the VOP most likely needs to be dealt with first.See question
I was convicted in 1997 of Possession of a financial transaction device in Colorado. I was 18 years old at the time of the offense, but 19 at the time of conviction.
You should ask your question to Colorado lawyers instead of Florida. Try posting your question with a Colorado address. Best of luck to you.See question
I am currently on felony drug offender probation. My initial charge was almost a year ago in which I was charged with "conspire/intent to purchase hydromorphone" I have maintained constant contact with my PO but financially have struggled to pay r...
What jail time you will receive if any is highly dependant on your prior criminal record and your performance on probation. It is important that you continue to comply with the conditions of your probation. You don't want to turn what could be a minor issue into a major one by getting charged with additional violations. If you feel that your test might come back positive from the lab, start thinking about getting a lawyer in place to help you on the VOP now.See question
And is honest with there po does the po have to violate them due to the disclosure or can it be up to the po discreation
The probation officer does have some discretion on minor violations. Obviously the more serious the violation the less likely the officer would let it slide. I would contact an attorney and discuss the situation before talking to the PO.See question
