    Robert’s Answer

    Making the payment certainly will not hurt. Hire an attorney to rep her on the VOP and get her out.

    Robert’s Answer

    What are the offenses? When did they happen chronologically? Is he currently incarcerated? Hire an attorney. Have a bond hearing if he is incarcerated or an Arthur hearing if he's non-bondable.

  • Can I seal a misdemeanor (disorderly conduct) I was adjudicated guilty for, after a certain number of years?

    Arrested in 2005 for disorderly conduct for fighting outside of a night club. The state attorney told me I could seal this after 10 years but several attorneys have told me no.

    Robert’s Answer

    No (not if you were found "guilty" without more). If it were a withhold however..... (1) Go to the clerk website: http://www2.miami-dadeclerk.com/CJIS/CaseSearch.aspx (2) type in your name and DOB. (3) does it say withhold? (4) if yes, call a lawyer.

  • Can I overturn a conviction for disorderly conduct from 2005. What are the chances a judge will allow??

    Hello, I was arrested in 2005 for disorderly conduct for fighting outside of a night club I was later adjudicated guilty. DA pushed me to plea guilty and I did. I was only 18 at the time and did not know any better. This conviction has been a...

    Robert’s Answer

    Were you represented? It is unlikely that a judge will overturn an 8 yr old plea. Not liking the deal now isn't grounds to reverse. Hire an attorney to look into it for you, but know that the odds are not in your favor.

    Robert’s Answer

    This is better posed in the immigration forum. However, $1700 is a steal and hiring a lawyer to assist you in your preliminary examination with a criminal history under your belt certainly couldn't hurt.

  • If i was to violate probation?

    Robert’s Answer

    Yes you violated. Yes they are looking for you (if your friend said that you were driving the car). You can go to jail (worst case scenario). How do you 'get out' of this? - hope that your friend didn't give your last name as the driver otherwise you will need to lawyer up.

  • Hi, I was arrested for selling counterfeited goods. Never was convicted .was trying to rent an apartment and was asking

    Submeet the aplication to rent an apartment and was denide . I was never charge of crime nether convicted. My credit is very good and I am very stable financially .what can I do ? How can I explain ? Thank you

    Robert’s Answer

    While I can't imagine this was the reason you were denied (perhaps while your credit score is good you have insufficient credit? High debt to income ratio?) hire an atty, get this expunged. Or, alternatively, if the offense was in Mia-dade co., go to the state attorneys' office and get a copy of the flyer re: free expungement. The SAO will do it for you. free. You're welcome.

    It was unfortunate but my daughters mom (we have been seperated for years) stole then wrecked and died on my motorcycle. To say the least I have alot of new responsibilities and bills. The local pd sent my motorcycle to a tow yard then put a freez...

    Robert’s Answer

    Unless you had insurance on the bike your ability to recover may be limited. An alternative means to recoup here may be to hire an attorney to send the towing co. a civil theft demand letter. This may motivate the towing co. to recompense your loss.

    It often depends on the County. Miami-Dade has a "no drop" policy (where the State will not drop a DV case simply because the victim no longer wishes to pursue). I'm not certain whether or not this is the case in Broward Co.

    Regardless, as has been stated previous, the State will have a tough time proving their case without a witness. Contact defense counsel and perhaps they can reach a favorable disposition.

  • How Can I find a pro-bono criminal defense attorney?

    I have a friend that is currently serving. 25 year sentence for being involved in organized crime. He was sentenced 25 because he chose not to speak against anyone in this group but yet all the others did speak against him & had there sentences sh...

    Unfortunately Courts will not reverse a bad plea deal merely because your friend feels shorted by the system. They will reverse an illegal sentence, however. If you feel that the sentence was illegal I would suggest contacting an attorney. While finding a pro bono attorney to address a sentencing issue in Federal Court will not be an easy task I would second the suggestions of my colleagues.
