    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.

    I agree with Ms. Constantine. At this stage, you should contact your case manager right away and get moving on the case plan.

  • Can i have my arraignment moved to a closer date. or have my attorney request the removal of a no contact order

    i want to get back together the the plaintiff but there is a no contact order for domestic

    Summer’s Answer

    Yes, you can ask your attorney to set a Motion to Allow Contact. Your attorney should first verify with the alleged victim that she or he wants contact as the victim must attend the hearing.

  • What's the process after a DV report how long it takes for him to get arrested?

    Me and my baby daddy got into a fight he hit me I left the scene and call 91, I went the next day to filed a report and show all the evidence I had it been past 3 weeks since then and the police haven't donne nothing. Why?

    Summer’s Answer

    You should follow-up with the law enforcement agency you reported the crime to. It could be that they have not been able to locate your boyfriend to arrest him. If that is the case, the police officer can refer the case as a "non-arrest" case to the State Attorney's Office. Ultimately, the State decides whether to file formal charges or not against a person. Again, check with the police to see if they are attempting tomake the arrest or if they are sending it over to the State as a non-arrest case.

  • I haven't been served a restraining order does it still count after 30 day s

    Ex put a restraining order on but but yet have not been served

    Summer’s Answer

    Lack of service does not result in an automatic dismissal after 30 days. The court can reset the hearing to allow for service and keep the temporary injunction in place.

    Summer’s Answer

  • What will happen to my cousin he was charged with battery but he threatened to burn the people who called the police .

    His pregnant wife and him were arguing but their friend got scared called the cops saying he abused her but he didnt the only thing they saw was a knocked down shower curtain

    Summer’s Answer

    I agree with the other answers. Your cousin should be careful about what he says and who he speaks to. He should not discuss his case with anyone other than his attorney and if in fact, he did threaten someone for calling law enforcement, he could be arrested and charged with Tampering with a Witness, which is a felony. If he has not already, he should consult with an attorney regarding the Battery charge to work on getting it dismissed.

    Its highly unlikely that the State will drop charges at this type of hearing.

  • Can you tell me what it means when it says, "Petition for Unsuc. term prob and court DL susp".

    It is on my husbands court docket and I would like to know what it means.

    Summer’s Answer

    If your husband was on probation (I'm assuming that's what the "prob" means), then it was for something criminal and not a civil infraction, which is what a speeding ticket is. It sounds like the probation officer is petitioning the court to find that your husband did not successfully complete the terms of his probation and asking that his driver's license be suspended until he does so.
    I hope that helps.
    Best of luck.

  • Would there be a way to toss out possession and paraphernalia charges through procedural error/ traffic ticket proven wrong

    Pulled over for traffic infraction. If this traffic infraction is proven unlawful and they shouldn't have pulled offender over, after smelling marijuana at the door and searching the vehicle to find possession and paraphernalia, would the civil ci...

    Summer’s Answer

    Yes, you should hire an attorney who can file a Motion to Supress pursuant to Fla. R. Crim. P. 3.190(h) and (i). Basically, the attorney alleges that law enforcement violated a person's Fourth Amendment right against unlawful search and seizure and asks the court to suppress the evidence seized in the case (drugs and paraphernalia in this case).
