Hi, I recieved a traffic citation from Monroe county, FL for speeding at 58 MPH on a 35 MPH posted road. I am an out of state driver from Pennsylvania holding Pennsylvania driver's license.
Hire a local attorney who can go to court for you and attempt to get the ticket resolved without the imposition of points on your drivers license. If you pay the fine, it is an automatic admission of guilt resulting in points on your license.See question

Yes, you can bring a claim against either your employer and/or the company that may have negligently repaired the roof. However, keep in my mind that slip/fall cases on wet floors (transitory foreign substances) require a certain level of proof in order to place fault on the store owner. You must prove that the store owner had notice of the substance that allegedly caused you to slip and fall. Be sure to speak with an attorney regarding your possible negligence claim which is separate and apart from your worker's comp claim.See question
My friend got a drug possession and paraphernalia charges in north dakota few days after his probation started. His probation is from the state of Florida though and he just have to mail the fines and monthly probation fee. They didn't send the pa...
The fact that your friend was charged with a crime in an another state may trigger a violation of his probation in Florida. This would result in a warrant being issued for his arrest, and he would then face a violation of probation charge back in Florida. This means that if he is stopped for a random traffic infraction, then his arrest warrant will pop-up when they perform a background search. He'll surely get arrested, and depending on how Florida wants to handle this may determine whether he is extradited back to the Keys to face the VOP charge.
His defenses to the VOP will be slim because he already closed out the case in ND. If Florida catches on to the other ND case, he'll needs to see whether there is any chance of reinstating his probation without necessarily re-appearing in Florida. He definitely needs to consult with an attorney in the Keys who specializes in criminal defense.See question
My fiancé has got his charges reduced to public disturbance. He was asked to pay the fines, etc and do community service and 6 months probation. Is there any way that we can appeal to have the probation terminated as it is his 1st offense and char...
Generally speaking, a defendant in a criminal case has 30 days in which to appeal the sentence from the date of the order. However, another alternative that may work for your fiance is that he may petition the court for an early termination of his probation assuming he has completed all conditions of his probation and served at least one half of the probationary term. Your fiance should definitely consult an attorney if he wishes to appeal his sentence, or possibly explore an early termination of his probation.See question

Yes, you can be charged with a DUI even if you were not arrested at the scene. In addition, make sure you hire an attorney for any court date--including what may appear to be a simple traffic ticket. I've seen to many pro se defendants appear in court to their detriment.See question

It does not appear as if you and your attorneys are on the same page. You should call your attorney and arrange for a face-to-face meeting where all of your questions can be answered. Lawsuits are very technical so you may not have a complete understanding of the process.See question

Ask your attorney to determine whether you qualify for any diversionary program where, upon successful completion, would result in a dismissal of the charges against you. If you don't like the plea offer, you can pay another attorney to review the State's discovery, and provide with a second opinion.See question
I was arrested in college for unpayed parking tickets 10 years ago. I then got pulled over with a suspended license(which was suspended because of my first offense with the unpayed tickets) got arrested, and did not appear in court. I was a scare...
Although I do not have all of the specific information to your case, from what I can gather, you need to determine whether there is an active warrant for your arrest in the county where you were initially required to appear in Court. If you have an outstanding warrant, you need to hire an attorney in that jurisdiction in an attempt to resolve that warrant. This is more serious that a suspended license, as this warrant and arise during a traffic stop, or at the airport, and you may be taken into custody and possibly extradited to the county where you missed court.
If you want to obtain a driver's license, you need to contact the DMV in that specific state and determine whether there are any holds from any other state. Once you determine where those holds originate from, and what those holds are, then you can hire an attorney in the originating state to attempt to resolve those issues.See question
moving date before court date. No probation officer yet. Possible it will be dropped to a misdemeanor
Presumably, you were under some conditions of pretrial release. This means there are certain things you must do while you await the disposition of your case. For example, not use alcohol or drugs; stay away from a "victim"; undergo random urine analysis; etc. Although there may not have been any specific condition restricting your ability to relocate, I would err on the side of caution and contact the pre-trial services office to discuss this issue.
If you have an attorney, he or she can file a motion with the court asking that the conditions of your pre-trial release be modified to the extent that you would be allowed to relocate. It would be the trial judge's discretion whether to allow this to occur.
In addition, your ability to relocate may also be governed by the conditions the judge provided when you posted bail. Assuming your were not ROR'd (Released on your Own Recognizance), you may also want to contact your bail bondsmen to determine whether there are conditions attached to the bond he placed on your behalf--one of these maybe relocating from the State.
Be sure to retain an attorney as soon as possible--Whether it is a Public Defender (assuming you can qualify), or a private attorney.See question

The disposition of your friend's charges could negatively impact his immigration status. An immigration attorney is needed at once so that he/she can work in combination with your criminal defense attorney.See question
