    Your question is confusing since it talks about drug possession but the titled talks about sealing or expunging an aggravated felony charge. In short, if your boyfriend's charges, whatever they are were dismissed by the prosecutor or the court AND he has never been adjudicated guilty of any criminal offense as an adult or adjudicated delinquent of an offense as a juvenile, anywhere in the world, he can seek to expunge the case. If he pled to a felony and was placed on probation, it depends on...

  2. Would 13 days be considered time served for trespassing in indian river county fl ? Or am I going to go back to jail?

    That is not a question that can easily be answered. On a 30 day sentence, 13 days is probably not time served. You might have to do a week more so plan on that so you are not surprised or see if you can do it on weekends.

    If you are not happy with your lawyer, get a new one of your choosing. If you have a court-appointed lawyer, you will have to make your request to the court why this lawyer is not acting in your best interest. I would sit down with your lawyer and ask him/her to explain why he/she believes diversion is the right course of action to you based on your specific facts and circumstances. You may not fully realize the strength of the case against you despite discrepancies between officers...

    You are very fortunate that it is not showing up on a background check. Regrettably, there is nothing that you can do to reopen it or have it expunged under Florida law. Perhaps an Ohio lawyer could tell you what is possible in that state.

    I'm confused by your question - she didn't go to your sentencing, you did not go or both? If you were given the next court date and did not show because your lawyer told you not to, how did that happen? There is a warrant out for your arrest now? How do you know that? Your lawyer must move the court immediately to withdraw the warrant and reset a court date. She likely will have to present you to the court to do it if it is a felony offense. This must be addressed right away so you are not...

    Your option is to either hire a private attorney or request a new court appointed lawyer. You'd have to lay out the information to the court as to why you feel your lawyer's performance is deficient and how he is prejudicing the defense of your case. Just because you don't necessarily agree with your lawyer's actions, the court will not give you a new lawyer. If your lawyer has failed to do what you have asked, or waived speedy trial when you specifically told him not to, or otherwise...

    An arraignment is the first formal stage in the criminal prosecution of a case. It is where the accused formally enters a plea of guilty or not guilty. When you are represented by a lawyer prior to the arraignment, we file a written plea of not guilty, a notice of appearance and a demand for discovery. Therefore, the client nor the attorney attends the hearing. It is simply set over the a disposition, status or pre-trial conference depending on the particular jurisdiction. If you don't...

    I agree with my colleague. Check the status of this lawyer's ability to practice on the Fla Bar website. You might have to hire another lawyer to do the motion for early term for you. I realize that you have already paid the first attorney in full and that is a problem, for sure. In the alternative, you can contact the judicial assitant about filing the motion pro se, i.e. on your own, in 3 months and explain your situation to the court. Best of luck to you.

    The State Attorney's office can mail you a subpoena to be their witness. You need to contact the attorney and explain your situation. The trial may not go as many cases resolve. If they really need your testimony, they will pay for your travel and lodging while you are here. The best thing is to communicate with that office and work with them to resolve these issues.

    This record is going to be attached to you until and unless you can seal it under Florida Law. Assuming you are eligible to seal it, you can thereafter lawfully deny this arrest and probationary sentence. It takes 5-6 months to get it done, so start the process right away. You cannot have been adjudicated guilty of any criminal offense or local ordinance violation or adjudicated delinquent in a juvenile case anywhere else in the world in order to be eligible. If this is your only case and...
