    If a person qualifies and is sentenced as a youthful offender, then the minimum mandatory penalties do not apply. However, it is in the Judge's discretion whether a defendant will be sentenced as a youthful offender. I would suggest hiring a lawyer to look into sentencing options for your boyfriend.

    If you fail to appear for a court date, the Judge can issue a warrant for your arrest. However, if you fail to appear due to being incarcerated in another county, so long as it is brought to the Court's attention, the Judge will probably not issue a warrant for your arrest, but should instead reset the case.

    Unfortunately, child abuse is an enumerated crime that cannot be sealed in Florida. As for the felony battery, depending on the specific statute, it may be eligible to be sealed, so long as you have no other adjudications of guilt on your record.

    If the arrest violated the 4th amendant, then your attorney can file a Motion to Suppress. If the Judge agrees that the arrest was not lawful and violated your constitutional rights, the Judge can suppress (not allow the State to use against you) all evidence obtained after the arrest, which could be very beneficial to your defense. I would suggest you hire an attorney to go over the specific facts of your case with you.

    I agree with Ms. Stockham, the facts you described does seem to be very unusual. Your friend may have set you up. No matter what, you should definitely speak with a criminal defense attorney about your situation. After reviewing the case, the attorney may be able to shed some light on what is going on. Good Luck!

    You can always request that the Court terminate your probation early once all of the special conditions are completed, however, many Courts require that you complete at least one half of your probation before the request will be granted. It depends on the Judge and State Attorney assigned to your case, and what, if any, agreement was made in regards to early termination when you were originally sentenced.

    It is difficult to answer your question without knowing the facts of the case. However, I would strongly urge you to not post in this very public forum any facts of the case. These are very serious charges, so I would suggest that you speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer and discuss the facts and defenses with him or her.

    Early termination of probation is always in the discretion of the Judge. Usually a Judge will be hesitant to grant early termination of probation if there has been a violation, however, if the probation officer is in agreement with the request, you may want proceed with the request for early termination.
