    While a misdemeanor battery is a serious charge that can carry jail time, the bigger problem is the fact that the new charge of battery likely violates his Felony Probation. With a violation of probation, the defendant is re-exposed to the maximum possible sentence including incarceration, as opposed to just probation. There are ways that an attorney can work to get the new charge dismissed which could consequently result in a dismissal of the violation of probation as well. Even if the new...

    Your reason for missing court is a valid one that can be easily handled by an attorney. I have filed many motions of this type and can often get the warrant removed the same day or within 24 hours, depending on the judge. Free consultation with me at 813-225-2695.

    I practice criminal defense in Hillsborough and surrounding counties. My office is in Tampa. There are many options available to you. As you were told, MIP may be a very viable option for you. If you are accepted into the program (and you should be with no prior record) and you successfully complete the terms and conditions set forth, the State Attorney's Office will dismiss or drop the charge against you. Do not simply plea to the offense without inquiring about MIP as a theft charge...

    It depends on whether he is RORed or given a bond. ROR means Release on his own Recognizance. If he is RORed, he can be released after the bond hearing/first appearance. If he is given a bond, he will need to post the bond before being released. I have worked with people in your position to assist the arrestee in getting out of jail and also in seeing the case through to a dismissal. You can contact me at my office in Tampa at 813-225-2695.

    "No alcohol" can be a condition of DUI probation that, if violated, can subject her to the maximums. That being said, most first time offenders will not be sentenced to the maximum even if found to have willfully violated their probation. An attorney can help minimize and mitigate the issue and work to get her out of custody quickly if she has to go in. Her max if her original case was either a refusal or under .15 breath is 180 days, or 6 months, but it's extremely unlikely she would do...

    Whether or not the ticket will get dismissed on the facts will depend on the officer's testimony and the judge or magistrate's view of the facts. Tickets can also get dismissed voluntarily by officers in certain cases (sometimes for legal issues and sometimes just to be nice when the facts warrant it) or by the judge for some other technicality. If you decide to testify, the facts as you describe them do not seem egregious so I would guess that if found guilty, the judge may still "withhold...

    I have had many prospective clients tell me, after being rejected for a job, that they did not list prior crimes because adjudication was withheld or they otherwise believed that they were being honest on their applications when they said they had no convictions. Most employers can forgive prior indiscretions...what they cannot forgive is dishonesty. In other words, they often don't care what you did; they care if you lie about it. List your priors and give a short explanation of your plea...

    It is not required that you have an attorney but often it is a good idea to have someone with you who knows the legal and technical aspects of traffic cases. Sometimes, we can get tickets dismissed without anyone ever testifying due to some technicality such as a speedy trial issue or a faulty citation. Traffic ticket attorneys usually offer very reasonable fees and if it gives you the peace of mind, you may want to consider it.
