I was recently stopped and given a ticket for DWLS. This is my 3rd offense. My priors offenses were at least 2 years ago. My license is now valid.
Highly unlikely in hillsborough county. If your license is now reinstated, with the help of a lawyer you'll most likely be able to pay fines and that's it. Keep in mind that your lawyer will need to negotiate a different charge to enter a plea to because if you have 3 dwls convictions within 5 years your license will be revoked as a habitual traffic offender (HTO)See question
My friend failed a drug test on drug offender probation so got a VOP. When he got arrested his had cocaine on him and got a new charge. He was arrested on the same charge he is already on probation for, (possession of cocaine). What do you think ...
Depends what the new charge is and how he picked it up. Depends on his record, what he's done on probation. Too many factors to list here. But the short answer is yes there's a chance if you have a lawyer who knows what to expect. Best case scenario is the new charge is dismissed and probation is reinstated. Worst case scenario is probation is revoked and he's sentenced to jail time.See question
I have no prior criminal record, do i qualify for withhold of adjudication.
Unless you have some incredible defenses, you're looking at a min man prison sentence and sex offender registration and a conviction of guilt if you plea to the crime as charged.See question
My girlfriend and I were messing around in a park and ended up getting caught by a police officer. He took my I.D and carded me but just said we were banned from the park and that he would give us warnings and handed us the warnings. Will this be ...
It doesn't sound like he charged you with anything. Most likely you were just issued a trespass warning. While I don't claim to be an expert on military enlistment requirements, it hardly sounds like something that would preclude you from service unless they specifically ask "have you been issued a trespass warning" and you lie about it.See question
was stopped for crossing stop line at an intersecction ,, during the stop i was asked out of the vehicle and asked for consent to search , i told officer i would rather you dont. he said i had no choice to step back ,the search found 4 pills my co...
Sadly it is common enough that I'm not surprised. What was the probable cause to search your vehicle? A simple denial of a voluntary consent to search doesn't give probable cause. Your rights may likely have been violated. A strong defense may help you file motions to argue the validity of the search and keep your record clean.See question
I was falsely accused of DV by my abssie hsband and was arrested and jailed with misdemeanor charge. Considering accepting a no-contest plea offer of DV divergence program/Batterer's intervention program, instead of going to trial. But worried abo...
if you're the victim of the abuse, it doesn't sound fair that you'd be the one to have to do the DV diversion. Have you considered with your lawyer litigating the case and forcing the state to prove it at trial?See question
is there a diversion program in tampa? also i am in the military. i am guilty.
No diversion in hillsborough county. Your only choice is to litigate it and hope for a successful outcome. If you blew presumably .16, then you're also looking at enhanced min man sanctions.See question
My test has never came back diluted. Do you think I will get another chance to test if it does come up diluted? I have to take the urine test tomorrow at 8:00am.
No matter what happens they won't arrest you on the spot. If your PO believes that you're trying to avoid a positive result, then he or she will have to fill out and send the judge an affidavit of violation. Then the judge signs the no bond warrant, which begins the VOP proceeding against you. You do have options to possibly avoid an arrest. Best thing to do is stay clean, keep your job, and be honest to the judge when you face him in court.See question
They were not able to violate my current probation because I committed the crime before I was placed on probation. Do you think I would get more probation for my new charge or what kind of deal could a lawyer make for me. The two crimes are in dif...
Depends on the facts of the new case and who your judge is in the old case (and the new case for that matter). Judges generally dislike it when defendants violate probation. They get even more perturbed when you violate for the same exact charge you were on probation for. Best thing you can do right now is to is try to avoid the inevitable no bond warrant for the VOP and try to convinxe your original sentencing judge to allow you to remain out on bond or ROR while you resolve the new grand theft charge in the other county.See question
