    You need a local lawyer to handle this case. A motion to proceed in absentia could be helpful in order to waive your presence. The ramifications of your driving privilege in Tennesssee may or may not affect your Florida Drivers License. You should check the status of your Florida driving privilege online to be sure.

    I have won several cases in which my client was seated in a parked car, however this does not mean the State cannot go forward. The definition of "actual physical control" of a vehicle ranges from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but some of the factors include the location of the person, the keys, and the registered owner of the vehicle. The Miranda rights issue is not relevant. I am sorry to hear about your mother, my condolences.

    I am very sorry to hear about this incident and wish you the best. My question is whether you had an attorney at the time of the original plea, and whether or not you were mentally competent at that time to waive your rights. I believe it to be reasonable you were suffering from extreme duress at the time of the plea, and the plea could be set aside. I wish you the best

    Does the person have another open case? In Miami this could mean the person is currently on probation and will not be released on the new case until the person sees another Judge to resolve another issue. A bondsman or a criminal lawyer who specializes in Miami cases could answer this question quickly if you contact them and provide a bit more information.

    On a violation of probation, there must be an affidavit filed with the Court that indicates the alleged violation. At this point, the Defense is on notice that the government can call any witnesses relevant to prove this allegation to the legal standard being a preponderance of the evidence. A Judge could give the Defense anywhere from 30 days to prepare for the violation hearing.
