    1) The speedy trial will run from the original date of arrest (assuming that his attorney has not taken a defense continuance). The speedy trial will expire 175 days after his arrest. On the 176th day, his attorney would then file a Notice of Expiration which would essentially give the State 15 more days to bring him to trial. If the State failed to do so in that 15 day recapture period, then his attorney would file a Motion for Final Discharge and the case would be over. 2) He will get...

    So if you were guilty of a crime you would not want a defense or someone to negotiate on your behalf? You would take whatever was offered to you from the prosecution? Maybe you should consider moving to Iran or North Korea.

    Your son is facing a very serious felony charge. The fact that he has been accused by another person will not likely be enough to convict him of the charge. The state will also rely on physical evidence such as: fingerprints or possession of property alleged to have been taken from the home, etc. I would strongly recommend that you consider hiring a criminal defense lawyer to handle this matter for your son. Even though your son is only 19 years old, he will be treated as an adult in this...

  4. I was arrested Sunday morning for a DUI. What can I do, if anything, to get my charges dropped or lessened?

    The hiring of an attorney to help you through this will give you the best chance to get the DUI dropped or lessened. You are doing the right thing by aggressively acting on this immediately after your arrest. On a side note... The fact that you blew a .124 will cause your license to be administratively suspended which is completely separate from your court case. A blow of over .08 results in a 6 month suspension with 1 month of "hard time" where you cannot drive at all. The other 5 months...

    Testing positive for a controlled substance can be the basis for a DUI charge. Any substance that affects your normal faculties may be considered by a jury. You definitely need to consider retaining a skilled criminal defense attorney to help you fight this charge. This would be considered a 2nd DUI outside of 5 years from the 1st. Therefore, it could result in enhanced penalties but not a mandatory jail sentence. Best of luck.

    The situation that you are in now is very serious. Generally, a first DUI charge often has a plethora of potential defenses... but the picking up of a DWLS charge while driving on an administrative DUI suspension while you are out on bond on a pending/open DUI case will definitely not endear you to the prosecutor or judge. As stated by another attorney - you are very lucky that you were not held in jail on the second arrest for DWLS. I strongly recommend that you interview and retain a...

    Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer for you here. Employers vary greatly on how far they look back when evaluating a potential employment candidate. Some employers may agree to only look back a designated number of years where others will take into account anything that is found on a criminal background check. As long as you have never been convicted of any crime (this would include criminal traffic offenses) then you would be eligible to Seal your criminal record. This could...

  9. Paying the civil demand letter (shoplifting) should I ask for a written release? Or just leave it alone

    In my opinion, if you were going to be charged criminally, it would have been done the day of the theft. Since they declined to call the police that day, you are likely in the clear. It is extremely unlikely that they would go to the State Attorney's Office now in an attempt to get charges filed. As for the $200. If you pay it then that should act to release you from any civil liability. If not, it is very doubtful that they would sue you. Many attorneys on here recommend not paying...

    Judges here in Miami-Dade generally require that a person perform at least 1/2 of their Community Control before converting the remaining sentence to probation. Once you reach the 3 month mark you could retain an attorney to file a motion for early termination of the Community Control. This is true unless your original plea included an agreement that there would be no early termination of the CC. I should note that if you have had any violations of the CC (I doubt you have since it has...
