Hire a lawyer- With proof that your son is in rehab, an attorney may be able to get the judge to recall the warrant, continue the case until your son completes rehab and then work to resolve his case favorably. Feel free to contact my office for a free consultation.
The DUI would not have any effect on your possessing a firearm. IF you were adjudicated as a delinquent, and that crime would be a felony as an adult, , it would be a crime to own/possess a firearm if you were under age 24.
See Florida statute 790.23:
(1) It is unlawful for any person to own or to have in his or her care, custody, possession, or control any firearm, ammunition, or electric weapon or device, or to carry a concealed weapon, including a tear gas gun or chemical weapon...
A violation of a Quartermans bond essentially nullifies your plea agreement. Whatever agreement you may have had with the state attorney is void and the judge is able to sentence you to the maximum allowed by law. Although they are not common, judges do use them occasionally. If you have violated a Quarterman condition of your release, you should discuss the matter with your attorney as soon as possible.
If the electronic items were seized for evidence, they can be kept until the case is disposed- if the items were of a personal nature, such as a cell phone or laptop and are not necessary for the prosecution, you lawyer could file a motion to have your property returned. You should consult with an attorney to discuss the specifics of your case.
While truth may be a defense, I do not believe that your probation would be violated for slander. However, you are on probation, and this company could possibly get the police involved in "looking" at you. Why take the chance. Remove the posting, and avoid the possibility of the company calling on police. While you may not get violated for "slander", the police may find some other reason to violate you.
Although there are certain offenses that are not eligible to be sealed, if your case was in fact dismissed or charges never filed, that case may be eligible to be sealed and/or expunged. I would contact a lawyer that does sealings and expunctions in your jurisdiction. They will discuss the specifics of this case with you to assess whether you are in fact eligible to have this case sealed and in doing so make sure you meet all of the other criteria.
Given that the person has already served 15 years of prison, it would appear on the surface that all time periods for appeal and possibly even post-conviction challenged may have lapsed. It would appear as if some other collateral issue would have to be present, possibly new evidence or the like, in order to obtain some relief. I would follow the suggestions posted above, obtain contact numbers from the Orange County Bar Association or perhaps the Florida Bar, of a lawyer(s) who might be...
Depending on how the citation was written, or at thge discretion of the prosecutor, Driving While License Surpended/Revoked (DWLS) may be an enhanced penalty crime. Even if your cousin does not get jail time, this DWLS could be used in the future to "enhance" their penalty. A third conviction for DWLS could be considered a Felony offense carrying a possible 5 year prison sentence. Your consin should consult an experienced criminal defense lawyer to avoid these legal pitfalls. Feel free...
