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

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

Nobody changes a court date on a weekend. Courts are not open on the weekend. Every case has a trial period and for most Orange County felony charges, there is a two or three week trial period and the judge decides in what order to call the cases. Sounds like your son might have a good case reference the gun in the trunk. Pleaing out is your son's choice, not the PD's. Good luck.See question

Yes, this happens all the time. Sworn testimony can be enough evidence to sustain a conviction, Even if the testimony is untruthful. Not good that the victim lied and there is photographic evidence. Jail time is required upon a conviction if there are any injuries. You need to hire a private lawyer if you are able to. PD's are good attorneys but they are very, very, very overworked. Good luck whatever you decide..See question

I am male 55 years and I come to us Orlando florida as tourist. I am charged with 2 counts of battery 784.03-7 with 5 witnesses and both female victims want prosecution against me. what punishment will I get. regards saad
Nothing is certain and you have to fight for a good result. This is like asking before a football game, "what will the final score be?" It depends on many factors including when and who you hire to help you defend these charges. Other important factors are the facts of the case, judge, prosecutor and prior record. Every case is different. Good luck.See question
