  1. CAN I FILE A MOTION TO DISMISS CHARGES DUE TO LACK OF EVIDENCE?

    As you can appreciate, this is a very serious charge that carries with it a minimum/mandatory prison sentence of three years. That being said, you should strongly consider hiring an attorney sooner than later. By filing a Motion to Dismiss, you are not questioning the facts of the case and must admit that what the State is accusing you of is true. In a Motion to Dismiss, you're basically saying "yes, the facts are what they are, but they don't violate the law." That's the last thing you want...

    You're typically better off staying in traffic court unless the case needs to be set for jury trial, in which case your attorney would need to transfer it out to the complex on 49th Street. You should consult an attorney before your pretrial next week to avoid the risk of your case being transferred out. Good luck!

  4. If arrested for aggravated assault and had vop in another county is it possible to get out of jail?

    As Ms. Sticco stated, he most likely has zero bond on the violation of probation, which means once his new charge is resolved, he will be transported to Collier to address the violation. There are many possible sentences - the best being the State drops the new charge and he gets put back on probation for the Collier case. The worst case scenario would be consecutive prison sentences, depending on what he is on probation for. Good luck!

    Just like the other attorneys said, it depends on the judge. Speak to your probation officer about it and then an attorney in Pensacola if need be.

    Just as the other two attorneys answered, if you are placed on probation, you can ask the judge to transfer it to Lake County or ask for mail-in reporting.

    You may want to contact the attorney who represented her and ask that a Motion for Early Termination of Probation be set or retain an attorney to do that specifically. You could also call the judge's assistant yourself to ask for a hearing. There is not a certain time frame in which judges sign those orders, however close to two months seems long. Good luck

    You're right to be concerned about prison. Possession with Intent to Distribute is a serious charge and because he has a prior Burglary, he will most likely score mandatory prison if the new charges are filed (the prior Burglary adds 14 points to his score sheet and the Possession with Intent is 28 points - 44 points equals a prison sentence). Regarding a defense, this is a constructive possession case as opposed to an actual possession case, which is very helpful. His best defense is that he...

    No, you were not convicted. "Nolle Prossed" means the State dropped the charge and a withhold of adjudication means you were not convicted of the charge. Good luck with your job search.

    He may want to consider reporting it to law enforcement as harassing phone calls.

Making a call with conversation and with the intent solely to harass or threaten.
