    All criminal cases in Orange County are recorded digitally by the court reporter. You can call the court reporter and ask for a copy. They will then review it and let you know how much it costs to order the CD of the trial. The Orange County Court Reporting telephone number is 407-836-2280.

    You are suppose to see a judge within 24 hours of being arrested. If the warrant was based on child support there maybe a purge amount and if you pay that amount you will be released.

    Yes, a warrant could be issued. The more likely outcome is the attorney who subpoenaed you, will file a motion to show cause. If the judge grants the motion to show cause, you will be sent a summons or notice to appear before that judge to explain why you should not be held in contempt for failing to abide by the subpoena.

    You should definitely hire an attorney as DUI's come with minimum mandatory sanctions including mandatory adjudication of the crime if you enter a plea or found guilty of the DUI. Furthermore, blood cases are very technical so I would strongly recommend an attorney who emphasizes their practice on DUI and who has experience fighting blood results.

    Your nephew's case will be handled in the Circuit Court for the county in which he was arrested. The maximum a person can receive for a third degree felony is 5 years in prison, 5 years of probation, $5000.00 fine, or a combination of the three. Based on your nephew having no prior criminal record, there is a good probability the State may offer him a diversion program which will results in a dismissal if he successfully completes the program. Based on the information you provided, your...

    DUI's carry mandatory sanctions if your son is convicted or pleas to a DUI. By statute, the minimum the Court would : Adjudicate him guilty (which will give him a criminal record for the rest of his life without the possibility of expunging it), 12 months of supervised probation, $500.00 fine plus court cost, DUI Counter Attack School, Victim Awareness Program, 50 hours of community service, 10 day vehicle impound and 6 months driver license suspension.

  7. Should I get an attorney for a disorderly intoxication charge in Miami, Fla?

    A disorderly intoxication is a second degree misdemeanor. The maximum you could receive is 60 days county jail, 6 months probation, $500.00 fine, or any combination of the three. If this is your first offense, jail time would highly be unlikely. This is a criminal charge so I always recommend hiring an attorney. Furthermore, an attorney can waive your appearance at certain court proceedings which will keep you from having to travel to Miami for every court date.

    A first time DUI conviction is usually a misdemeanor unless the DUI involved serious bodily injury or death. To find out you can check your court minutes, call the clerk or ask your probation officer.

    Pretrial Diversion is a guarantee dismissal if you successfully complete the program. Anytime you go to trial you take a gamble because you never know what a jury will do, no matter how confident you are in the case. I would strongly suggest meeting with an attorney and thoroughly discussing your case.
