    As a former Florida State prosecutor who prosecuted ordinance violations, I know that many cities and counties have noise ordinances which punish offenders who play music over a certain decibel level or can be heard from a prescribed distance from the music source. If you are asking if you can "legally" play music for others without violating copyright laws, the answer is likely yes if the music was legally purchased by you and the playing of the music is not being copied or reproduced for...

    You should consult with an attorney in your state regarding possibly filing a Motion to Vacate any sentence they may have imposed and attempt to remove the charge from your record. According to what you have stated, the legal actions by the police at the time of the stop were inappropriate by Florida standards and laws but because I am not licensed in your state, I cannot provide you any specific legal advise on that issue. You should meet with an attorney who can take you to the next step...

    He won't need a lawyer to get the D-6 clearance (that can be obtained for a small fee at the Clerk's office in the county where the violation occurred) but he may want to hire an attorney to address the warrant and attend court. If he can't afford an attorney, he can always try to file a motion as a pro se litigant, or contact your local bar association for low cost attorney services.

  6. I got a ticket for speeding 83 in a 45 zone and it is marked as an infraction with court appearance. What will happen?

    I practice primarily traffic related defense. Because the speed was over 30 miles per hour over the limit a court appearance will be required. In other words, you cannot just pay the ticket and/or take a defensive driving course to close it out. You, or your attorney if you hire one, will need to set court within 30 days of the date you were issued the citation, and attend court. Your attorney will know of potential motions to dismiss, and if none are applicable, there may be a way to...

    I agree with the other attorneys who note that you don't have to sell anything to be charged with either Possession or Trafficking Cocaine. Certainly, an attorney would carefully review the discovery in your case and conduct some investigation to determine if the charge is proper and if the State can prove it against you.

    There are likely numerous legal factors at play of which you may not understand their full import. I cannot comment on the actions of your attorneys but I can say that attorneys must operate within the bounds and restraints of the law. In Florida, there are guidelines which the Court must consider and follow in imposing any child support obligations. Ability to pay is usually considered along with the needs of the requesting party with the overriding concern being the "best interests of the...

  10. I got stopped three seperate times on three seperate dates. Can the DA lump all three charges together?

    I do not practice law in Colorado, but I hope my more general advice can help. Even if you were eligible for a license reinstatement, but you had not gone to your DMV and gotten your license fully reinstated, the police and the DA/State Attorney can still file the suspended license charge against you since technically, at the time of the stop, you did not have a valid license. As to the habitual traffic offender designation, in Florida, the requirement is that you would have to pick up a...
