    An adjudication withheld means no formal conviction. I would say if asked by an employer if you have been convicted of a crime and you received a withhold the legally correct answer is NO! Remember this only applies if you have no other convictions.

    Obviously I wont be able to explain everything but I will try and summarize. Florida operates under the Criminal Punishment Code Scoresheet. Each Primary offense (current offense) is scored as well as any additional offenses. Then they also score your prior record under prior offenses. The primary offense is given a level for instance Grand theft > 300 but less than 5000.00 is a level 2 and scores 10 points as a primary offense. However, DUI causing serious bodily injury is a level 7 and will...

    There may be a way to overturn that 5 year suspension depends on many factors. If you choose not to act you cannot drive for one full year and after the year you can apply for a hardship license.

    This depends greatly on who the prosecutor is in the case. The best he can hope for is a reduction to a misdemeanor and that will depend on the circumstances of the case. Either way he needs a withhold of adjudication because if he is convicted he will lose his drivers license for 2 years and be considered a convicted felon.

    He can definitely ask for drug treatment. He needs to speak with his attorney about that option. Depending on the county, however most have some in-house facilities. However, he may have to stay in jail until a bed becomes available. Furthermore, whenever you violate probvation with a new charge the Judges take that very seriously so further jail time is a real possibility. It will likely depend on his scoresheet and his prior criminal history. If these are his only two felony offenses I...

    Unfortunately if you have been adjudicated guilty of an offense you cannot seal or expunge that record. Even if you could when applying for a job where you need state license you would have to reveal that information.

    The state has 33 days to file charges or else they have to release you unless they show good cause, and in that case they get 40 days. If charges are filed they must bring him to trial within 175 days the speedy trial period in Florida. Now there are certian extensions that can be granted in certain situations. If you waive speedy trial they can keep him in there until a trial is set which could be up to several years. If he wantws to take a plea that is something he will need to discuss...

    Florida does not extradite for misdemeanors. What you might want to do is contact an attorney in thet County and see if he can work out a dismissal of the warrants in return for you paying off the remaining monies. If you have any questions please visit our website. www.fightyourwarrant.com

  10. Can i get my felony charge dropped to a misdemeanor?

    No I argued this same issue in the Second District Court of appeal and was unsuccesful. The court held that the law must have made it a misdemeanor at the time of the offense. So legally speaking you do not have a remedy.
