    If Florida finds out that there has been probable cause that you committed a new law violation, such as DWI while on probation you will very likely be violated. If your probation has been terminated before a violation is submitted then you may be okay. If your probation officer is stating he isn't violating you, that is a good thing but I would be cautious of that as it is not common they just "don't violate you when you commit a new law violation" typically it is an automatic violation. If...

    You definitely should seek the advice of a private attorney. DUI charges can be one of the most complex areas of criminal law. Additionally, aside from just the criminal side of things there is an administrative side directly dealing with the DHSMV and your driving privileges. There can be many defenses potentially to your case and a private lawyer would be able to challenge the driver's license suspension for you with the DHSMV. Be careful taking advice from friends...everyone has their...

    This can be a very complicated answer as it depends ultimately on how your case is charged and ultimately resolved. Typically if convicted of a possession of marijuana charge you would be under a suspension for 2 years and may be eligible for a hardship. Your situation is much more unique in that you are a juvenile. Finally, the issuing of a license can be at the sole discretion of the DMV. If you have no criminal history a lawyer should be able help you avoid a conviction. You definitely want...

    Excited utterance is a type of exception to the hearsay rule under the evidence laws. However, based on the context of which you provided this information in your case it could be harmful to your case. Having an opportunity to review your police reports and the specifics facts of your case it is easier to better answer your question with much more detail. Additionally, aside from what you have stated there could be many other legal defenses that an experienced lawyer could explore on your...

    It sounds like there may have been an investigation of you by the Prosecutor's office who then made a formal charging decision against you who then issued the arrest warrant, also known as a capias. It is important you speak with a lawyer to review any and all documents and discuss with you all of your potential options.

  6. What does dhsmv code/dl class/fatality 606 e o n mean?

    The best thing to do when someone has a suspended license is to get a copy of their COMPLETE driving record. That will help determine everything that is going on with his license. As for the codes listed on the docket, it could be internal. Once an attorney is on board and has all the discovery than the answer to this question may be much easier as the attorney will have all the necessary information available to explain in detail the codings etc.

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

    I would recommend speaking to an experienced traffic lawyer before you enter any plea. As stated by other responses, stating no contest does not ensure you will not receive points or other sanctions I'm sure you are hoping to avoid. There may be legal defenses to your ticket that you could explore in court. Additionally, depending on the speed of the ticket you may be facing additional consquences outside of just a fine and points. Before you head to court speak with an experienced lawyer.

    You may have possible defenses to these charges and should probably seek the advice of an attorney. You also may want to try to talk to someone that handles traffic matters, criminal traffic matters, and criminal matters so they can probably advise you from each step of your particular incident. A lawyer can ask more questions to determine what approach to your case is best and how to try to achieve a result that would have the least impact on your potential jobs. Criminal charges could have...

    Just because you were arrested it doesn't mean the discovery obligations on the part of the Prosecutor's office have triggered. Once the State Attorney's Office files formal charges (typically via a document called an Information) against you and your attorney has filed a demand for discovery THEN the 15 days from the date of the demand starts. Many defense attorneys will give the Prosecutors more than 15 days because they want to try to keep a good relationship with the Prosecutor when...

    The first thing I would suggest is to get a copy of your Driving Record from GA. Your driving record will show whether or not SC reported to GA about your DUI. This is likely but I always like to know these things for sure. There is what is called the National Driver's Registry which allows the States to input information about drivers in a main system on a national basis. However, it doesn't always accurately show everything. If you go to obtain a FL license and FL is aware of your prior DUI...
