    There are actually no mandatory penalties for a DUI in a federal park. In the Southern District of Florida, the U.S. Attorney's office usually requests a fine and some type of alcohol treatment.

    Trial? Why not try and get the case dismissed without risking a trial. If you have already paid back most of the money maybe the State Attorney's office would be willing to drop your case once who have paid in full. You should probably interview two or three lawyers with expierence in criminal defense and hire one of them to represent you in this matter. Felonies are serious matters. Feel free to contact me at (305) 374-3998 Good Luck!

    You should interview two or three lawyers who practice criminal defense. Meet them in their offices and bring any paperwork you have with you. If you have a witness it would be a good idea to ask your witness to come with you to the meetings. This way the attorney will have a good idea about your case and will be able to advise you. If its your first offense and no one objects, the state will usually allow you to enter into a diversion program. Once the program is completed (usually a class or...

    Your fiance should hire a lawyer ASAP. His lawyer can then interview you about what happened the night you were mugged. Once you and the lawyer have an opportunity to speak the lawyer can decide what is the best avenue to take.

    An attorney with experience in family court matters should be able to help you. A family court judge may have the authority to order your husband to simply not drive with your children in his car. Many states also have special laws on the books which provide a way for a family member of someone with a serious drug or alcohol problem to go into court and request that the person undergo court ordered treatment. I also think you should consider contacting your local District or State Attorney'...

    Nothing in criminal court is supoosed to be "automatic." You need to hire a lawyer to look into the conditions of your boyfriend's probation. Sometimes a person on probation is ordered to not drink to excess. If that is the case one drink would not be a violation. Even if it is a violation however, judges a supposed to consider the seriousness of the violation before sending someone to prison. If your boyfriend was seen having one glass of wine at dinner and someone else was driving for...

    As a general rule anyone charged with a violation of criminal law should have an attoreny represent them. I strongly suggest that you attempt to contact an attorney in Burlington who practices criminal defense. Most states will allow a first time offender in your son's position to enter into some type of diversion program which would entitle them to a dismissal of the charges and allow them to seal their record. You should realize however that some judges will consider this a serious offense....
