Someone was given 3 life sentences for Robbery, He appealed 1 and was acquitted, The Judge Ran all 3 Life sentences Concurrently, Being that Concurrently means that all the life sentences will be served in 1, Will he be released on all 3 Life Sent...
Your recitation of the facts isn't quite clear, though you probably shouldn't post anything further but rather go consult with a federal practitioner who can open the case file and take a closer look, but it seems like the other two life sentences will still have to be served. This is because concurrent life sentences really reflect more time than can possibly be served, so when one third of the excess or one half of the excess is removed, you're still left with a life sentence which can be served. Having said that, I do not know the exact circumstances and facts so cannot say for certain, but that would seem logical. Sorry.See question
Like for drug and sex offenses would federal charges be considered the most serious in those cases?
Federal offenses kind of mimic state offenses. The difference is in who it is exactly who is charging you.
Both the federal and state governments are sovereign, and both can arrest and prosecute for essentially the same crimes, sometimes at the same time! However, usually if one the feds take over a case, the state will drop theirs. It all depends whose attention the suspect comes under and which government files the charges.
By the termination of probation. All other conditons of probation have been completed dui school community service and jail time.
It depends on your reasons, any time remaining for probation to be extended, and how your case is presented. If it is simply a matter of not being able to pay it all on time even though you are trying, and there is no further probation time, it will likely be converted into a civil judgment. If there is time on probation, it may be extended for you to complete paying. Or, if the court finds that bad faith is involved, it could sentence you to jail time to complete. Consult with an attorney prior to appearing. Good luck.See question

Such documents are property of the police and given over to the defense in discovery. Depending on who you are in relation to this case and what stage of prosecution the case is in, you may be able to request a copy from the police, someone with access, or perhaps from a public records request.See question

You do not have to prove anything. Rather, the government has the burden of proving that you in fact did do something wrong. If you are contacted by police, I would advise you elect to not speak with them about this, or that you become represented by counsel to insulate you, or if they detain you and you are not free to leave but not yet formally arrested, say nothing and ask for an attorney. Good luck.See question
I violated my probation by moving to another state while I was actively on probation for public assistance fraud. I failed to report a change in my income within the slotted time frame and was prosecuted. Florida now has my Texas address. Can they...
Yes to both questions.
Either get represented now (by a Duval county criminal defense attorney) and have that lawyer handle this as best he or she can with you in Texas (you will likely have to return, but at least you will have a court date and a defense prepared for when you do, and perhaps a pre-arranged disposition), or wait until you are picked up and held or transported, to face the violation. Even if you never get picked up, the open warrant, likely with no bond, will hang there until it is resolved, possibly hindering your travel, employment, peace of mind, etc.
One last thing: if you can pay back what is owed, get represented now. An attorney may be able to settle the whole thing in exchange for full restitution. Good luck.

Payments toward the cost of supervision alone should not cause you to be violated if you've passed all other conditions. Instead, any remaining balance may be converted to a civil judgement. Alternatively, the probation may be extended, if that's possible, and supervision costs waived going forward, while you past the amount due, but that would be unusual. However, if part of the probation was payments to a victim or other restitution, that could cause a problem. Contact an attorney for a confidential evaluation.See question
Friend went to jail. Was sentenced 15 years.
Even such a basic sounding question is impossible to answer without many more facts. Some crimes have minimum sentences, some have minimum mandatory sentences, and some do not. Some prisoners get significant time off a sentence for substantial assistance after the sentencing (federal system), others for drug treatment (federal system), and some for good and gain time (usually a reduction of 15% of total imposed), while others do not. In addition, any time spent in jail before conviction and sentencing will be credited towards time served. So, the answer is, " it depends."See question
If i am the VICTIM in a sitiation. Is it still safe to get an attorney ? If so could I get an attorney through this site. And how much will it possibly cost?
Yes, a victim can obtain representation but not to prosecute the case. That is left to the state attorney's office, whom I presume you have already contacted.
Victims have certain rights in Florida, and you would be wise to obtain an advocate to press your concerns throughout, given the constitutional rights you enjoy. Attorneys cannot solicit on this site, just make themselves available, so i suggest you contact a few and arrange for a private, confidential consultation to discuss your needs. Costs will likely vary according to your needs and the nature of the representation. Good luck.
