    Sorry to chime in so late here but the State Attorney can drop the charges before, after or at the arraignment. There is a big difference in probable cause for the arrest, the standard needed to file the charges and actually proving the charge at trial. Good luck if this is your case!

    If you did not lie you are not committing slander. It is very unlikely you will violate probation but if you want to be on the safe side, consider removing the reviews.

    If you were adjudicated guilty of a felony you may not possess one and you would face mandatory prison time if you were caught with a firearm.

    Possibly yes. The lawyer will likely file for a rule to show cause in front of the Judge who can order you arrested if there was not good reason you failed to show. Subpoenas are not a joke. Please take them very seriously.

    I can not say in every case that your son's DWI will show up on a Florida driving record but it does show up in some cases. The best thing is for your son to order a Florida Driving record to see if it shows up.

    You can hire a lawyer to do a 3.50 motion. I would consult with a few local lawyers to determine the merits of such a motion and if you feel comfortable hire someone to set aside your plea. Good luck!
