    It's not likely to be vacated. It's possible just not likely. There are numerous incompetent lawyers in the jurisdiction however this lawyer had your case reduced to a misdemeanor so he did do something helpful for you. At that point you had a choice to either plea it or go to trial on felony charge. You may have won on the felony but the lesser included charge could have been a conviction and jail time. You made the choice and the judge asked if anyone forced you to make this decision- you...

    Here is your problem: if you told that story to the judge you may have likely sealed the deal for the state because you just said under oath he committed the crime. Next time consult atty before you address the court. State may drop it but if they don't then the testimony you gave in court will be used against your son. I want to say, "way to go " but you did not know. Please be careful as it is obvious that you want to help him but could cause harm by speaking out loud without consukting an...

    There are obviously several defenses. You get what you pay for in this area. Hire an attorney that is certified in DUI or a member of the National College of DUI Defense. Unfortunately, there are way to many lawyers that pretend they are good at defending DUI. Plea bargains are free so ask them percentage of case pled and check with clerk of court by randomly selecting previous dui's the firm has handled. Its easy to find out who has hack and who puts in the work. do your research and...

  6. How long after an arrest, must the police keep audio and video records of the interrogation?

    there is no time limit on how long police keep audio and video of interrogation. Its in there best interest in prosecuting you to keep and forward such tapes to the state. 911 calls, and cad reports( when the police check in with dispatch) are normally only kept 30 days. If there is something that helps the defense during the interrogation and the tapes are purposely destroyed then there may be motions your attorney can file.

    I would start with parenting classes. Enroll yourself. Police are not going to change report. Look at lease carefully. Knowledge is must likely needed to terminate agreement. Hire someone knowledgeable in landlord tenant and see if they can work it out with apt complex

    Aggravated battery scores a minimum of 21 months florida state prison with a maximum of 15 years. That is if you plea the case or lose at trial. There are defenses and mitigation available so sentence could be anywhere from nothing if you win to 15 years fsp if you lose. Hire someone who is not a plea lawyer otherwise your friend/family member will end up in prison.

    It sounds like your friend may have been sentenced on the 10 20 life statute and therefore it is not likely that a Motion to Mitigate would be successful. Acquire a copy of the final disposition on his case and I will take a look at it and give you my best opinion.
