I live in Florida. My criminal case is three years old and has been "nolle processed" twice. I need to know what my options are to finally get this case closed
If all counts were Nolle Processed then your case is closed. That is Latin for 'not prosecute.' You may be able to have your record expunged. Ask your attorney about that process. Good luck!See question
Hi I have a family member that was caught stealing in Walmart under $100.00 and the arrested her.
Yes, theft is an arrestable offense, even when the merchandise is $100 or less. It's criminal, not civil so they can arrest you and a permanent criminal record and a trip back to jail are possible depending on the facts of the case, judge, prosecutor and prior record.See question

Sounds like you have a good case--based on what you are saying. I would need to see your ad and listen to the recordings to know more. Never any guarantees with any lawyer but this case sounds far better than the average case. Good luck!See question
Took state two months to file charges. Was previously posted as sale and delivery w/consideration for more than 20 grams.
It means you're being charged with selling weed. It's a third degree felony. 60 days is not uncommon. They have 175 days to file charges. You will have an arraignment date soon. Good luck.See question
I was driving home last week from the bar and I got pulled over for having a headlight out which is not ILLEGAL so when he smelled alcohol on my breath I got the sobriety test where I walk and do tests and I failed every one miserably I fell a cou...
Headlights are required from sundown to sunrise. They are not optional and never have been. I don't know who told you this. Not a criminal defense lawyer I'm guessing. You are 4x the legal limit if you typed your BAC correctly. If you don't go to court, the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. You need help. Good luck!See question
Boyfriend been in jail since Oct.13 and today is Nov.21 and he haven't been for an arraignment it was cancelled on Nov.9 can they still hold him or they have to release him
Yes, you can be held in jail with a hold past 40 days for many different reasons. There is not automatic get out of jail date--unless all charges are dropped and there are no other pending cases. He needs to ask his lawyer what options he has for this case and what the hold is for. Good luck!See question

That's basically penicillin and it doesn't cause impairment like alcohol or pain killers might. You need a different defense. Reinstating your license would help. Good luck.See question

They can treat it as a prior arrest because you were arrested. Not as prior conviction. You can be denied a diversion program because of a prior arrest. Good luck!See question

Nothing is automatically dismissed. You have to demand speedy trial which you may not want to do. Your next court date will now be with a misdemeanor judge and misdemeanor prosecutor. That is a good thing. Good luck.See question
Disposition: STALKING (Adjudication Withheld), (Nolo Contendere)
If you pled to stalking and adjudication was withheld, it will be on your record for the rest of your life. You can't expunge a charge that you pled to and you can't seal a misdemeanor stalking charge. This is a discussion that you need to have with your lawyer prior to resolving your case. Any experienced criminal defense attorney should know this. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.See question
