    You should always consult with a criminal defense attorney before making any statements to a police officer. Any statements you made could be used against you in a future criminal proceeding.

    No, and often times you can get the fine reduced by taking it to court (if it is worth your time).

    I routinely help my clients that have tickets that are in collection by getting the court to remove them from collections and waive all fees that were tacked on. This saves a lot of money, so you may want to check with a local traffic ticket attorney in your area (not all attorneys who handle traffic tickets have the knowledge to get this done correctly, so do your research and hire someone who knows what they're doing).

    Generally, the officer's DAVID system will show that one of the registered owners has a suspended license. Upon reviewing that information, the officer may stop the vehicle to determine who is driving, unless the officer can clearly see that a female is driving or if the officer has another valid reason for stopping the vehicle.

    You need to hire an attorney to make sure that this charge is eligible for sealing / expunction. Don't enter a plea without an attorney reviewing the case discovery and making sure that the state's offer will not prevent you from keeping this off of your record.

    The best thing you can do is hire an attorney to remove a prior "conviction" from your son's record and provided that only has three convictions, this amended disposition should lift the five year habitual traffic offender revocation. Not all attorneys know how to do this and a lack of familiarity with this removal process could result in substantial delays (in removing the revocation) or the Court denying the attorney's request to remove the conviction (and your son's license would remain...

    Refrain from discussing your case any further on a public forum, such as this website or Facebook, and immediately set up consultations with experienced attorneys in your local area (after researching their qualifications). Sometimes, the best way to find a lawyer for your case is by asking friends or family for a referral.

    If today is your arraignment hearing, the Judge or Magistrate may offer you a deal, but it is important that adjudication is withheld because this offense carries points, as it is a moving violation. Often times, an experienced ticket attorney who frequently deals with the DOT toll enforcement officer may be able to negotiate a disposition that results in your ticket being dismissed or greatly reduced, but this is only done at the infraction hearing (not the arraignment).

    A criminal traffic offense is a sufficient basis to find that a Defendant has violated the terms and conditions of probation, specifically, the requirement that the probationer "live without violating any law." See Cox v. State, 816 So.2d 160, 160–61 (Fla. 2d DCA 2002). You should tell your probation officer ("PO") about your situation, but I highly recommend that you hire (or at least consult with / put on speed dial) an experienced Orlando VOP attorney prior to having that conversation with...

    According to Florida Statute 316.1974, a hearse, during a funeral procession, is transporting "the body of a deceased person." Clearly, under that statute, there is a differentiation made between the physical body and the person. Once a person is deceased, all that remains is his/her body, but not the person. Also, the purpose of the HOV lanes is to reduce traffic congestion and the resulting pollution by encouraging car-pooling and the use of high efficiency vehicles. The law exists to benefit...
