    Evidentiary issues are often discussed that the jury cannot hear. This does not exclude small talk and jokes.

    Florida law requires you to get a Florida drivers license within 30 days of becoming a Florida resident. Therefore, they give you so time. IF YOUR OUT OF STATE LICENSE IS SUSPENDED you have to clear that up before you can get a Florida License. To echo what my colleagues have said, you need to contact an attorney in California to get it taken care of before you can deal with obtaining a license here in Florida. Hope this helps.

  3. Petition for expungement denied because I forgot about an old DUI. Why didn't it show up on the FBI check? What can I do now?

    Get a NJ attorney fast. In Florida, DUI convictions cannot be expunged because there is a mandatory adjudication on your record. But no Florida attorney will be able to help you with the process in NJ. Good luck.

    All the jury needs is one reasonable doubt. The defense has done a good job of giving the jury reasonable doubt. The defense has painted the picture of self defense and most of the eyewitness accounts support that. The prosecution is doing their best. The major gap in this case from the beginning was that no witness saw how the confrontation began and now the world is left with Zimmerman's account which could be seen by a lot of people as reasonable. Any time a child is killed it is sad....

    This is not legal advice. You should hire an attorney. To answer your question it depends on how the state charges you. If they charge you with the second degree misdemeanor petit theft then the value of what was stolen does not matter. As long as it was of some value or worth a penny or more. If they charge you with the misdemeanor in the first degree which requires value over 100 dollars the price of the item may be relevant. Either way, if it goes to trial the m2 will be a lesser included...

    You can always object. The rules of evidence present two problems for trying to use an email. One, it is hearsay. Two, no one can authenticate it. It should not be allowed in. This is not legal advice. Consult with an attorney in person. I practice criminal and maybe the rules of evidence don't apply for some matters in family court. I don't know.

    The penalties that a person may get varies by each court room as Mr. Randall said. However, if you show the state that you have a valid license they may work with you and allow you to have a civil infraction. I did this all the time as a prosecutor.

    The speedy trial rules prevent a case from lingering longer than it should. However, the Defense has to file a notice of expiration of speedy trial, get the matter heard at a hearing and then the court will calendar a date for trial. The element of complete surprise is therefore removed. The state will have some (although possibly minimal) time to prepare. The state usually, especially for felonies knows whats going on.
