    The first time he was arrested for domestic the victim did not show up for trial now he was arrested again but with this case she had a restraining order out on my boyfriend and his charges are More serious this time... Burglary/wit assault or bat...

    Summer’s Answer

    It will most likely be very difficult for the prosecution to proceed without the victim's testimony. However, in some cases, the State can go forward without the victim. Are there any other witness? Did the victim call 911 and make statments that could be introduced at trial? Did your boyfriend make any admissions to law enforcement?

  • Arrested for possession with intent & dwls....just released from prison 4 months ago...how much time could he get?

    was incarcerated for burglary & let out in October. Pulled over driving someone else's car, sheriffs found drugs hidden on car and arrested him. They were not his & he didn't know they were there, bit they put it on him. Other than hiring an attor...

    Summer’s Answer

    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 had no knowledge of the drugs.
    Best of luck!

    Summer’s Answer

    Your boyfriend is facing extremely serious charges. The Burglary/Battery alone is punishable by life in prison.

    Be careful, Florida Statutes, Section 322.212 criminalizes, and makes a FELONY, the making, selling, or possession of a false identification card.

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

    He was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in gadsden county and had vop in Immokalee Fl. Is it possible for him to run probation concurrent, or he would still have to be transported to Immokalee, since it what 9 hours away?

    Summer’s Answer

    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!

  • How many times has brenton douglass coker been arrested for simple battery or domestic abuse?

    brenton douglass coker arrest sheet

    Summer’s Answer

    Your best bet is to check with the local clerk of court's office (in the county where Mr. Coker resides or where you believe he may have been arrested) to see if they will retrieve his record for you or visit the clerk's website to try an online search. If that doesn't work, you could hire a private investigator to conduct a background search for you.

  • I was given the advice to plead "no contest" to a speeding ticket. What does that mean and what are the implications?

    I recently got a speeding ticket on the 408. I have never in my life gotten a ticket. I was told to go to court and plead no contest so I don't get the points. I have a court date next week and have no idea what do or say to them.

    Summer’s Answer

    Entering a no contest plea does not automatically mean you will not get points on your driver's license record. To avoid points request that the judge or hearing officer withholds adjudication of guilt.
    Good luck
