  • Is it illegal to drive in Florida without a ffront bumper

    I just took off my front bumper for repairs but it won't finish until next week. My question is, well I get pulled over or arrested for driving without a front bumper. I need to drive to and from work.

    Jason’s Answer

    If the officer thinks your vehicle is unsafe, you can get pulled over and get a ticket. Officers can pull you over for so many reasons regardless of the bumper, if they want.

    I agree, contact an injury attorney first, and document the evidence. Also, your attorney may have an investigator examine the evidence. Speak to the cereal company only through your attorney.

  • Walmart is accusing me of suspicion of theft but never saw the evidence the police supposedly has. Denied to sign a statement.

    Can an attorney request to see the evidence the police supposedly has? How long does it take for an application for a warrant by the police to be approved or denied by the Judge? What do both of these mean? What happens it is approved? What happen...

    Jason’s Answer

    Yes an attorney can request to see the evidence the police has, unless it is still an open investigation. If they have enough evidence, then law enforcement can request a warrant from a judge. This can be as quick as a couple of hours if law enforcement thinks it is something that needs to be searched ASAP. Evidence that can be easily destroyed or will not exist for long are often the causes for law enforcement to act quickly. In other cases it may take a week or two, if law enforcement has no cause to rush the warrant application. If the warrant is approved other law enforcement agencies will be notified to arrest you. If it is denied by the judge, either the police will close their case or continue the investigation. Once the warrant is served, an attorney can obtain the evidence the police has by filing certain documents, if it is still an open case, the attorney can investigate and get an idea of what the police have, but it will not be with 100$ certainty.

    Also, was anyone cited for a traffic citation? Contact a traffic attorney as well. The traffic citation disposition is not admissible in a civil suit, but statements made under oath possibly could be used.
