    Sounds like your friend was subject to a Baker Act after bond was posted. I have seen this happen a few times at the Orange County jail.

    In Orlando an extension is often granted as long as you are showing progress in the program. The diversion officers want you to successfully complete the program and will allow additional time. Make sure they have the Documentation for the hours and payments you have already made.

    Yes your background will still show with a withhold of adjudication. However you may want to speak with a local attorney about reviewing the specific charge and your history to see if you qualify to seal the record.

    The easiest way to deal with this issue is to hire an attorney to file a motion on your behalf to have the case put back on the docket. If you failed to appear there is a good chance a warrant is active for you. Otherwise you will need to turn yourself into the jail and hopefully have a bond.

    The state attorney decides whether to file the formal criminal charges. The victims input is certainly a factor in making this decision. Many times the state attorney can prove the case without your cooperation. Each case is factually different, so I suggest you contact your boyfriends lawyer and see what you can provide to assist.
