    Before you enter a plea of no contest, you might want to consult with an attorney. If you can't afford an attorney, ask the court to appoint the public defender to represent you. The consequences can been pretty severe as depending upon how the petit theft was filed or charged by the state, you could be looking at up to a year in jail and a one thousand dollar fine. That also doesn't take into account the effect a criminal conviction could have on other areas of your life either now or in...

    You can file a lawsuit against the government and try to recover for the damage done to your bike, but you may want to do a cost-benefit analysis up front and determine whether or not it is worth the time and expense of filing a lawsuit that you may or may not win versus the cost of just having the bike fixed. If the bike was still rideable even after the collision, it sounds like the damage was minor and it may not be worth filing a lawsuit in this matter.

    If you hired this attorney and have questions regarding his competence and ability to handle your case, you can always fire the attorney and hire someone else. For God's sake don't wait until you've been convicted and sentenced and then hope to win a successful motion for post-conviction relief. Find a new attorney NOW!

    You're definitely looking at prison time, and you need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney now to assist you with this matter. As Mr. Chandler notes, there are several issues that relate to how severe the consequences may be and you need the facts with your attorney, and only your attorney, not your mom, your girlfriend, or anyone else.

    You are only read your rights if you are in custody and the police ask you questions. You do not need to be driving in order to get a DUI, you were in actual physical control of the vehicle, behind the wheel with the keys in the ignition or accessible. I would advise you not to discuss the facts of your case on an open forum like this in the future.

    If he is still in jail, you need to get him released, as the previous attorney stated he can only be held for 33 days without charges being filed. If he was appointed a public defender, you need to get on that assistant public defender to make sure that he/she is following up on that, and if they're not, you need to consider trying to hire a private attorney to assist him. Quite frankly if the ASA is pushing him to take a deal without filing charges, they may consider their case to be weak,...

    I concur with Mr. Fetter. That being said, however, you're only eligible for a sealing/expungement on the second case if you received a withhold of adjudication so you may want to have an attorney help you with regards to sealing or expunging that case.

    What is illegal in the state of Florida is causing unnecessary or unjustifiable pain and suffering to an animal, under the state's animal cruelty statutes. As to whether the "couple of whacks" you have your dog caused a level of pain and suffering sufficient to charge you under this statute is something that the state would ultimately have to decide and may look at, among other things, how big the dog was and how strong the "couple of whacks" were. All in all, I would say don't worry about it,...
