    Attorney Witt is exactly correct; she should hire a criminal defense attorney NOW and try to influence the DA's charging decision. Focusing on paying restitution now may or may not be helpful and could possibly be harmful depending on the facts.

    Good advice from the other attorneys. Pick a major you are interested in but give yourself a fairly broad background. Take a couple challenging math classes, a logic course, classes about history, a sociology class or two, psychology courses, philosophy, and a variety of other courses to make you a well-rounded individual. If you have any interest at all in intellectual property law, be sure to get a science-based bachelor of science degree so you could sit for the patent bar if you decide...

  3. How often does fl decline extradition from another state but still want to prosecute the crime

    They probably won't dismiss and you will probably have a warrant out for years to come. Every time you gete pulled over for something, you will face being taken into custody for a week or two until Florida makes up its mind. The fact that Florida is not willing to pay to have you driven or flown down does not mean they are about to dismiss the charges. You could go and face the charges voluntarily or hire an attorney down there to see if something could be worked out. Good luck.

    I suspect that will fail but the judge might cut her some slack if she is smart in how she handles this. If your daughter is unable to check her blind spot or respond promptly to various stimuli (i.e. sights and sounds) as she drives, her driving is inhibited and she is being reckless, precisely the evil the statute seeks to avoid. Get her an early christmas present, a bluetooth headset that works with her phone, and have her take the headset to the court. Have her point out (in a polite,...

    It is difficult to say what they are thinking but you should be speaking to a criminal defense attorney ASAP about what, if anything you told them and what exactly they took. Ideally the attorney you hire will also be knowledgable about drug forfeiture law if you want to get back what was taken from your home.

    He could face anything from a scolding to revocation of his probation and the statutory maximum penalty for the offense at sentencing. Realistically the worst that would probably would happen would be for him to lose the likelihood of expungement because he's messing around with drugs again while on probation and face a short stay in the county jail on a PO hold. The agent isn't going to probably want to keep him out of school for any period of time but your son needs to grow up ASAP before...

  7. HOW DOES A PERSON GO ABOUT GETTING " JUDGMENT PROOF " ? GO TO A LAWYER ? GO TO THE COURTHOUSE AND FILL OUT FORMS ?

    I agree with the other answer. Being judgment-proof is just a way of saying there is no way a creditor can reasonably hope to collect from you. It sounds like your sister is judgment-proof. She might consider filing bankruptcy but until she does she should expect to continue being hounded by creditors. Bankruptcy is to allow people who have little or nothing to wipe away their debts. It does sound appropriate.

    It depends on the facts of the situation. If the guy has any kind of other criminal history, the prosecutor may want to pursue him as a dangerous scumbag having sex with kids. If this is an isolated thing and the guy just screwed up in this one way but otherwise seems okay, they might look the other way (especially if he is being an active father or at least paying child support so that the child isn't as much of a drain on government resources.) Or anything in between. I agree with the...

    Hiring an attorney might help facilitate the divorce, especially if there is tension preventing you from communicating effectively with your (soon-to-be) ex. If your ex is refusing to cooperate in reaching an agreement or at least identifying which issues need to go to trial, you can tell the court that and the court will issue an order containing deadlines. If the proceding is or becomes adversarial, I strongly suggest seeing an attorney. Good luck.

    Trying to be compliant and being compliant are two different things. If he violated any of the terms of probation, he could face a sanction. If the agent is being abusive, your brother should consult with an attorney about whether it would be smart to go over the agent's head to his/her supervisor about the situation. I strongly suggest consulting with an attorney first both because the attorney is likely to be more objective than your brother and because the attorney, if he/she is...
