  • Expunging a case in Florida

    I would like to know if in order to expunge a felony case in florida, the offender needs to be physically present? The felony case is from 1985 due to an insufficient fund check issued for USD 50.00. Can this case be expunged?

    Ryan’s Answer

    Mr. Bowdish is correct and provided you with a great deal of information. To add to that, if you decide to expunge this case also consider taking it a step further and request the private background check companies remove the information as well. This is not an easy process and you will have to request the removal of your record from them directly.

  • I had two DWLS ans one unknowing DWLS and I received notice of becoming a Habitual traffic offender but one was dismissed what h

    appens now that on has been dismissed

    Ryan’s Answer

    Habitual Traffic Offender has more to do with the type of charge than points. Points make no difference for this suspension. There are other suspensions resulting from points.

    Driving on a suspended license with or without knowledge is its own animal and a combination of 3 charges in 5 years results in the 5 year suspension. How you were sentenced and whether it was charged with or without knowledge is extremely important.

    Contact a Florida lawyer for help on this. The Clerk of Court and the DMV make mistakes. Your situation can mean the Clerk correctling the record and updating the DMV or you may need the full services of an attorney to withdraw your plea or modify your sentence.

    I am including a link to my website below to provide you with more information about the 5 year suspension. Don't give up hope. In most cases you can reverse the suspension.

    It was my understanding that my friend was approached by the police and car search & stated they were going to arrest my friend for sales and delivery but then the more she goes to court the story changes and now they are charging my friend with d...

    Ryan’s Answer

    The weight of the drugs determines whether or not it is drug trafficking. The State Attorney controls what type of charge is filed and prosecuted. Drug trafficking charges are very serious and require a mandatory prison sentence. There are exceptions and you can gather more information from my website. Go to the link below and educate yourself about this law.

    Ryan’s Answer

    I do not see anything out of the ordinary regarding the DUI plea. Whether the school is liable for anything? Did they force you to drink? If yes then maybe you have something but I would be surprised if that was the case. Why they want you to notify HR is anyones guess but it probably has to due with the alcohol consumption on school grounds. You may want to consult an employment lawyer.

    What are the chance she will have to do jail time.She is disabled.Will they take that into consideration.The police say she was seeing two doctors for same medication.

    Ryan’s Answer

    There is a possibility but as a first time offender it is unlikely. But be careful and make sure you fully understand what is happening or the effects of any plea. Simple mistakes cause a lifetime of problems. Look into hiring an attorney to get the proper guidance through the system.

    Ryan’s Answer

    Seek out an attorney for help of this. Your case has a possibility of being a misdemeanor but could also stay a felony. A diversion program might also be your best option. With no prior criminal history spend the time and money and get help.
