    If he has an open Miami case, a lawyer in Miami can have a Judge sign an order to transport, ordering Miami Dade to go pick him up. This could help the process speed up.

    When you say you "just got a DUI" do you mean like 5 seconds ago? Because unless you are asking this question from the police car, you already went to jail and bonded out for your DUI. Its likely a Judge would give you a bond on an misdeameanor without realizing you are on probation, sometimes a new case can fall through the cracks and this happens. You need to consult with a local lawyer who knows the Judge who put you on probation to understand the best tactic possible. Of course you are...

    You need to speak with your attorney, or another attorney who specializes in Criminal Defense, about whether or not your case will be dismissed at the end of the program. You may be eligible to seal and expunge your record, depending on the charge and your criminal record. Sounds like your attorney is not communicating with you, which unfortunately can be a common problem.

    Police don't press charges, PROSECUTORS DO. If the reports or the police or the victim contact the prosecutors office, you can be sure something will happen.

  5. My DL is suspended till 2015. Three prior DUI convictions. If I drive on the suspended license, what is the consequence in Fl?

    If you are arrested for driving on a DUI revocation you will be facing jail time, up to 364 days in jail. If it ends up being your third Driving with a Suspended License conviction, you will be facing a felony, and thus 5 years in prison. Don't do it! Three DWLS convictions makes you a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) and thats a felony.

    I dont think its legal for the police to arrest you, if the only evidence is a passenger in your car with drugs down her pants. If I am driving with a friend of mine, and he is carrying marijuana and I dont know about it, you can be damn sure I am not getting arrested.

    Sounds like a 3rd degree felony, punishable by maximum 5 years in prison, which rarely ever happens. There is a chance at the first court date, the State Attorney could reduce the charge to a lesser offense, or drop the charge entirely depending on who the victim is and what they say. Cases like this are best to attack early and often, before charges are filed. Not sure what you mean by "supervised visitation", I think that question is best answered by a family law attorney.

    You are a juvenile so you wont have to hire a lawyer to seal and expunge it, the law mandates your juvenile record be automatically sealed and expunged when you turn 18 years of age. Any kind of pre-trial diversion, PTD or PTP JAS or SCOP as it is usually called in Miami Dade, could be a good idea but you would want to meet with a local lawyer first.

    What does having 4K in your possesion have to do with misdeamenor drug possession? I would say there is no nexus at all, and file a Motion for Return of Property ASAP. Obviously I would need to read the arrest reports but it sounds like with a good lawyer you can get your money back as long as there is no connection with the money and the crime you are charged.

    Kind of a tough question because someone would have to run your Florida driving record to see if you ever reinstated your license. When a person is pulled over for DUI in the State of Florida and does not have a Florida Drivers License, the State assigns them a Drivers License Number. This license will never become valid unless you take the driving test and pay several fines. You could run your Florida Drivers License Number on the State's website and see if its valid. My guess is its not....
