It is likely that a warrant was issued for your arrest. Regardless of whether a warrant was issued or not, your safest next step is to retain counsel to assist you in addressing the charge. A lawyer can help in having a warrant set aside, if one was issued, as well as representing you in court.See question
I am on felony probation, I had no idea I had a court date set up until my p.o. called me and said so. He didn't even receive the notice until the day after court. I'm not sure if there is a warrant out. What should I do
If there's a warrant for your arrest, you can surrender yourself to the jail to avoid the surprise of getting a knock on your door. Before you do that, if you're able to retain an attorney, you'll want to hire one ASAP. Keep in mind that felony VOP's usually come with no bond, but under the right circumstances, a lawyer may be able to get out on bond while the violation is pending and they can certainly assist you in addressing the violation itself.See question

You have three issues that are all important to your present and your future. First, there's the criminal case itself and the implications from having a criminal record, even in juvenile that involves a crime of dishonesty such as theft. Next, you may have consequences at school based on the student code of conduct as well as any rules that your athletic department and/or coach impose upon players. Star player or not, getting in trouble is bad news for you. Finally, even though you don't have a license yet, you may be looking at a mandatory license suspension, which won't begin until you are eligible for and apply for a license.
I strongly suggest you speak with a few lawyers here in Orlando about your case and what can be done to protect you.See question
I really want to get this job at Convergys but they said if I get probation I can't get the job. Is there anyway of not getting probation?
That all depends on your case and your criminal history (or lack thereof). Do you have an attorney? If you do, you should work with him or her to address your concerns. If you don't, now would be a good time to consult with several lawyers who practice here in Seminole County and hire the one that you believe will serve your needs the best. Avvo doesn't allow us to solicit clients through this service, so you'll need to go through the Find a Lawyer feature here to find lawyers that you may want to reach out to so you can have a more specific discussion about your case and what can be done to put you in the best possible position.

It appears to me that you may have been mislead, as I am unaware of any jurisdiction in the U.S. where a D.U.I. is a civil matter. I hope you hired a lawyer to represent you there and if you did, I presume that they would know enough to tell you that Florida will treat your charges there as they would treat them here. What do I mean by that? I mean that the State Attorney's Office here in the 18th Judicial Circuit will treat your DUI in NJ like they would a DUI in Brevard County as it relates to your probation here.
You're on the right track by posting a question here for guidance, but what you really need to do is speak with a lawyer about what you can do to best protect yourself from the consequences of your violation. I encourage you to begin by looking at lawyers right here on Avvo who practice in Brevard. You can find them by doing a search through their find an attorney function. Once you have identified a couple that are qualified, call them for a private consultation. Obviously, jail is your current offer, so hiring a good lawyer could make the difference in your case.
I hope I've been helpful in addressing your question.See question

If someone on felony probation is alleged to have violated probation here in Seminole County, the judges will usually sign off on a no-bond warrant for their arrest. If this was merely a 1st-time dirty urine screen, there would be a very good chance that his lawyer could get him reinstated. However, in light of the additional allegations against him, I would expect your boyfriend would be arrested and held in John E. Polk until his VOP case is resolved or until his lawyer files a motion to set bond, assuming that the judge will even consider giving him a bond. There are factors that the judge will take into consideration when determining whether a bond is appropriate in this case and even if they deny bond, often times this hearing will give the defense an opportunity to discuss possible resolutions with the prosecutor and the judge so it serves two purposes. In short, it's worth having his lawyer file the motion to set bond to get him before the court sooner and to allow that dialogue to begin in earnest. If he doesn't have a lawyer, I suggest he/you hire one as soon as possible.See question
I got a DUI on 1/20/17, my case keeps getting rescheduled because my lawyer doesn't have the full discovery. The original court date was 2/4/17 after God knows how many times it's been rescheduled, my next court date is 6/22/17. The lawyer say...
It is not uncommon or unusual for a case to take several months before all the discovery is in and ready for litigation. More often than not in DUI cases, the videos take longer than the remainder of the discovery to obtain. Rather than complaining about how long it's taking on-line, I suggest you reach out to your lawyer and speak with him or her about your case and what you can expect out of them and the process. It's your lawyer's job to ensure that they know all of the details of your case so they can properly advise you as to what is in your best interest. That can only be done once all the discovery is obtained, reviewed and analyzed.
I hope that this answer is helpful and wish you the best in your case.See question
I violated probation In Orlando with a new charge. I know the affidavit has been filed I'm just curious as to how long I have before they come beating down my door. I'd much rather turn myself in on my terms versus being caught unprepared.
You're absolutely right to want to turn yourself in and have some semblance of control over how that process plays out. I often recommend to my clients that we coordinate their surrender, so that we're able to file a motion to set bond and get it set for a hearing as quickly as possible. While getting a bond is not a guarantee on a VOP as it is on most new law offenses, there are things that can be done to put you in the most favorable light possible. Turning yourself in is among the things you can do to help put you in that position.See question
I was convicted for fleeing and alluding, i was sentenced to 18 months probation and only severed 9 months, due to good behavior and no v.o.p. This is my 1st and only time i have been convicted for anything.
Unfortunately, if you were convicted of a felony, you have lost your right to bear arms, to vote, to serve on a jury and to hold political office. A felony conviction has far-reaching implications and in your case might have even caused your driver's license to be suspended so I suggest you consult with a lawyer to ensure you are fully informed of the consequences of the plea and sentence you accepted. While it's likely too late to undue the damage done, educating yourself may prevent future issues that would create the need to hire a lawyer again.
I hope that this has been helpful to you, even though it's not likely what you wanted to hear.See question

The DUI statute allows for people to be charged with DUI if they are driving or are "in actual physical control" of a motor vehicle to the extent that their "normal faculties are impaired." What this means in plain language is that law enforcement does not need to see you actually driving to accuse you of DUI. That said, here in Brevard County, juries don't like to convict people of DUI where there may not be anyone capable of testifying to a driving pattern because you're parked and your bike is off. As a quick side-note, you only have ten (10) days to challenge the 12 month license suspension that you sufferred as a result of refusing the breath test, so I suggest you speak with a lawyer ASAP to see what your options are. Unless you have prior alcohol related offenses on your record, you have two very distinct options to consider. Most of us offer free, confidential consultations that will inform you of your defenses and your rights.
