I know everything about his dealings. laundering, schemes where the money is. On recorded they wanted him and his associate. This is my brother in law and I suffered i prison 12 years sentence. This is no joke.
You can report, but finding someone who is interested may be challenging. Unless criminal activity is ongoing and substantial, or if past activity included unsolved violent crime, you may find there is little interest in your historical observations. Money laundering may attract some attention.
In any event, please do use an attorney to contact law enforcement or prosecutors to ensure your information is recognized and rewarded. Good luck.
I was attending a football game with a bunch of friends and we were all pulled aside as a group and given a ticket. Initially we were told by the police officers that if we paid the ticket within 2 weeks it would not effect our record. We were you...
It is not only possible but likely that were given false information by the police officer, or at least inaccurate information. Police often say whatever they must in order to accomplish their mission, at least when dealing with citizen suspects pre-arrest. So, telling you what you wanted to hear to ease giving the ticket is a possibility. In the future, i suggest you take legal advice from attorneys, not police. In reality, you have a record for this charge showing that you entered a plea and that the court declined to convict you. It sounds as though this incident is eligible to be sealed, making that record invisible to the general public, but perhaps not to any regulating agency to which you may have to apply to get credentials in the future .
I suggest you consult with an experienced attorney to evaluate the procedural history, the charge, your needs for privacy, and advise on how to best go forward. Good luck.
I'm on a suspended sentence of 6 yrs probation for violation of the RICO Act in Florida. I also caught a possession charge that the p.o doesn't know about 7 weeks ago.what kind of situation am I in
You're in a situation with potentially devastating consequences if not well handled. You require an attorney to get on board sooner rather than later to try to get this sorted out.
My office has defended gang-RICO prosecutions before, and it is critical that you are represented when this issue comes around. If you can get ahead of it, all the better. Only an attorney can reach out instead of you waiting for the hammer to drop. Speak to an attorney asap. Good luck.
I'm wondering if the police have any leverage at all in bringing a suspect, who already has a lawyer and informed the police accordingly, and who is not under arrest, to the station for questioning. If there any way for them to compel a person to ...
Every question you ask has an answer that is specific to the facts and circumstances of a case, making a general answer nearly worthless.
However, anyone can choose to speak to police voluntarily and at times a lawyer will allow a client to speak to police. However, if a person has a lawyer, and is contacted by police, and agrees to speak with them without notifying and despite having an attorney, then having the lawyer didn't likely do that person much good and they may have harmed themselves. Remember, police can and do lie when investigating and interviewing potential suspects, and do sometimes break the rules (usually in order to compel someone to say something against their interest). It becomes an additional task to try to ameliorate any damage after the fact.
My brother had permission from a homeowner to enter a home to retrieve some property that he left there. When he arrived there were people in the dwelling. These people were told to leave the premises six weeks earlier. Therefore they were squatt...
Burglary is a common law crime with modern enhancements in the form of the Florida statute. In order to arrest someone, there needs to be probable cause, a very low standard of proof that criminal activity may be afoot. So, under the circumstances you relate, police could l;ikey see P.C. based on hearsay statements alone, and there were likely several. In order to charge that crime, however, the state attorney (prosecutor) is supposed to review the case and determine whether he or she can overcome any reasonable doubt, a much higher standard of proof. In your scenario, it would seem the prosecutor should decline to charge once made aware of the various facts. However, this can take some time.
A private attorney would investigate the facts, determine the best course of options/action, initiate action on your brother's behalf to make it known early and insistently that the charges are unsupported.
Alternatively, if there is no defense input early on, and the state does a quick review or disagrees that there was no crime, they would then file formal charges, which must then be defended against. Again, a good attorney on your side is important. Hopefully, the public defender is looking into the facts now and can perhaps offer some guidance shortly.

Clearly, you need to speak with a lawyer. Your issue is relatively unique during a time of unsettled relations between and within countries. Just trying to think it through a bit:
As a US citizen, you may be admitted back in, but wth an open felony warrant, likely with no bond, you could be detained and held for extradition back to the issuing jurisdiction.
A criminal defense attorney on your side would be helpful - perhaps could get the warrant recalled based upon your imminent re-entry, but that requires hiring someone first. Someone also familiar with the way immigration and detention works, which can be dynamic at this time, would be best.
If you are picked up and eventually find yourself before a judge, the court should appoint counsel at that time. You could then work through the issues. If you do make it through re-entry, it would again be helpful to have an attorney to get you a court date and minimize time spent in custody.
Finally, you can always contact a bail bond person in Jacksonville and try to get some details on any open warrants: Bond? Amount? If there is a bond, pay it before you leave. If not, you will likely be held until you can appear before a judge. When you do, ask for a lawyer. Good luck.See question
Four amedment said police need probable cause to arrest you at home ? Do the police need a probable cause before to come to the house or if could be after began at home intervention ?
Police can always come to your house. Whether they have a warrant or not, and if not, whether you let them in is another question.
The fourth amended says that no warrants shall issue but upon probable cause. Without a warrant, police have no right to enter your home. Of course, there are exceptions. If you open the door and a crime is occurring within plain sight, or is apparent through other means (odor, etc.), then courts will admit evidence so obtained.
The other thing to always keep in mind is that police can do many things they should not. The remedy is for the courts to recognize and punish by not having any wrongly obtained evidence used against you. That remedy does not forestall your being wrongly arrested, charged, and prosecuted.
When it comes to arrests, they can take place anywhere if police have a valid arrest warrant and evidence of crime, either recently completed, contemplated, or in progress, is legally present. Again, if police mess up, it is up to you to defend that while being prosecuted.
Therefore, if you suspect you have a warrant or police are interested in you for some reason, it may be best to obtain representation which can act as insulation between you and the law. If your rights are being scrupulously observed and defended, there is less chance an errant officer will commit you to the system to defend yourself. Good luck.
If I'm technically already under arrest, do I not have the right to remain silent and not answer any questions? Why is this lawful? Are my rights as an innocent person not more important to the courts?
The state considers driving a privilege, not a right. Therefore, you are expected to agree to relinquish some of your rights in order to drive among others. When you obtain your driver's license, you also agree to provide a breath sample if police find probable cause you may be impaired; it's called implied consent. You do have the right to refuse the tests, but the implied consent then puts you on the wrong side of the rights issue - you either get a license suspension as a punishment for refusal, and second refusals, when it is considered that the consent is no longer implied but complicit as you have already gone through the system in that area in great detail, may yield a separate criminal charge with exposure to jail time, just for the refusal. In addition, the statute makes it possible to use your refusal against you at trial, just for good measure, to show consciousness of guilt, as opposed to righteous indignation. Talk to a lawyer in detail about defenses. Good luck.See question

As the others have stated, the answer is "yes."
It would be best to lawyer up, as they say, and get ahead of requests for a warrant/records, assembling mitigation, and preparing for a possible DMV hearing.See question
