    The short answer to your question is: Jail time is a decent possibility when you violate your probation with new law offenses. That being said, there is quite a bit of information missing here such as what your prior record is, what you are on probation for, whether you have been convicted of the new law offenses, etc. There are so many factors that play into the ultimate sentence you receive. You need an attorney to evaluate your individual situation and give you an answer after knowing...

    There are a number of factors that will affect the ultimate penalty in your cousin's case. If his license is still suspended from the DUI, that would be treated more seriously than if it was suspended for something like unpaid traffic tickets. Your cousin should consult with an attorney. Depending on the circumstances of his driving record, there are other potential consequences for him such as being labeled a Habitual Traffic Offender.

    Without seeing exactly what is on this woman's background check and the way it is worded, I don't think anyone on here can give you a satisfactory answer. Background check forms often jumble alot of information in a short amount of space, making it easy to misinterpret the information. As you probably know, and the reason you are understandably concerned, the Jessica Lunsford Act was passed in response to the abduction and murder of a little girl. The Act has many components. My suggestion...

    Assuming you have no prior record and there is no allegation of sale of drugs in your case, you may be eligible for drug court. This is a program where once you complete it, the charges are dropped. www.brevarddc.com has more info on program, costs and requirements.

    Generally, the State Attorney's Office will consult with victims before deciding what position to take on a Defendant's Motion for Early Termination of Probation. If you are a victim and they have not contacted you, you should feel free to call them and state your position. If you are a Defendant and you are concerned about the effect the victim's input will have on the Judge, please know that the Judge is not bound by the recommendation of the victim. The Judge has discretion to terminate...

    Theft offenses become more serious, depending on the value of the items taken. The kind of crime you're describing (third degree felony) may be eligible for entry into a Pretrial Intervention program (PTI). There are a number of factors that affect eligibility, including existence of prior record. If this person is unable to hire an attorney, the Office of the Public Defender will be appointed and an attorney there can advise whether this person is eligible for diversion. If the person is...

    Having an injunction issues against you can have serious consequences. Injunction hearings are before a judge, who will hear any evidence put forth by both sides and decide whether to issue a permanent injunction. You don't say whether anyone else was present during this argument. You also don't mention whether she has filed criminal charges. Please consult with an attorney, who can review the petition and any evidence and help you in your defense.

    In Florida, you cannot get your record sealed if you have an adjudication on your record- either for the offense where you seek sealing or for any other criminal offense. This is a situation where you need to consult with an attorney about your options for reopening the case and asking for adjudication to be withheld. If your daughter has other criminal offenses, that will have an impact on her eligibility for sealing.

    Go to www.brevardclerk.us, on left side under Quick Links it says "Forms". Click on that and then click on "criminal". There is a link that has the forms you would need for both sealing and expunging a case. A proposed Order form is included in there. You would need to modify it to reflect the county you are in and the information specific to your case.
