What they are doing to you sucks, because the State is probably assuming (incorrectly) that you will not get any credit for time served until the warrant is served. When you hire an attorney, they will know how to get you the proper time served on your VOP. If they don't understand what you're saying (go get another attorney??), cite them the case of Milligan v. State, 88 So.3d 1031. In this case, a VOP warrant was served 83 days late, and the judge refused to give Milligan credit. The appeals court granted him the time served, just as you should be granted this time served.
Bailbondsman is a close friend of mine so she got me out without any one signing my papers and without me showing up within 24hrs to sign paperwork she put up the money for me and say I could pay her back I have been out for a whole month and I sh...
You did the right thing by showing up in court, but a bail bondsman is not required to continue insuring your appearance throughout the entire case--should you violate your agreement. It would seem that, without an agreement protecting you, she could revoke the bond at any time and put you back in jail. Now, you could always bond right back out with a different bail bond, but you should try to work something out now.
The reason you sign documents up front is to protect you--the customer--from getting screwed by the bail bond should they get cold feet and want to put you back in jail. In this case, you have no agreement protecting you from the whims of your "friend" bondsman. So, like I said, get this financially squared away asap, as there is nothing stopping her from picking you up on this. Again, you can always bond yourself right back out with somebody else--but why go through all that hassle? Just take care of these people. Good Luck!

I am presently on probation for 10 years . I will finish in 3/2018. Have not been in trouble. Restitution has not been paid in full and all 8 co-defendants finished probation without paying one cents when it was stipulated that they do so.
Post conviction work takes many forms. Depending upon the amount of time that has past, your options may be limited. Typically, you only have a couple of years to challenge the work of your attorney. That being said, newly discovered evidence may permit you to extend the typical time constraints on post conviction motions.
Or, it may be that you simply wish to challenge the fact that none of the 8 co-defendants have paid their fair share of the restitution--leaving you stuck with the tab. The problem is going to be getting an early termination in your case without restitution being paid in full. You should research how the other 8 co-defendants were able to terminate their probation without a single payment! If any one of these 8 had their probation terminated early, I would see little reason why you should not be treated in the same way, under the same case number, same facts. Once you've gotten some answers, go to a local attorney to see what can be done with your probation.
I was caught 2 months ago with possession of marijuana less than 20 grams , I went to court and I got put under the divergent program , I just got arrested 2 days ago for the same thing , i live in Naples Fl I don't know what to expect in court ?
Most diversion programs are going to kick you out for getting a new arrest. So, expect your diversion program to be terminated. Now, the issue is, there are many different types of diversion programs, and I'm not sure which one you signed up for. Some diversion programs require that you enter a plea, with the sentence being suspended pending completion of the program (then the case is dropped at sentencing if the program is successfully completed). If you've signed up for this type of diversion, you've already pled to the charge and the judge can sentence you based upon your diversion termination. However, there's a better type of diversion that doesn't require an upfront plea. With these diversions, when you're terminated the case just goes back to court. I don't think you'll be going to jail, but it would be best to figure out which judge you're going in front of for this, and call a local defense attorney to ask them about how your judge is going to handle this situation. Some judges will revoke your bond on the first case (the diversion case) based upon the new arrest, most won't. Get some local attorneys involved ASAP.See question

If she owns it, she cannot be charged with theft for taking something she owns. However, if she takes it, she should compensate you for your half ownership. Otherwise, the TV should probably stay right where it is.See question
For government computer access (DAVID). I have a pending felony charge. Its been almost 2 years pending. I need to get the case dropped.
If the victim doesn't want to participate in the prosecution of your case, this is, obviously, a good thing, and it can lead to dismissal. But, it depends on "why" they don't want to be part of the case. For example, if a victim in a case lied to law enforcement during an initial statement, this is free country, and they can recant that initial statement at any time. Once the victim recants their original statement, dismissal is more likely (assuming, of course, that you have a good attorney).

My girlfriend was convicted of a non violent felony in Florida where we were living for a few months after we moved there from maine. She got let out on probation after a few months and was allowed to go back to Maine while her probation was being...
This may be a long shot, but your girlfriend's attorney may be able to go back to the judge and convert the supervised probation to "administrative probation", a type of probation that requires only a $50 fee up front, but no reporting requirement. I doubt the prosecutor would be too happy about this, but judges do have the power to modify probation as they see fit. Technically, this would be a Motion for Modification of Probation.

I received a hardship license after a first offense for dui in NC. I have recently moved to Tampa, Fl, I need to be able to drive to work. What should I do to get the same license in Fl?
Typically, Florida's DMV does not accept hardship license transfers. I'm not sure why, but I've seen them deny it several times in the past, most recently last year. That being said, Florida's DMV sort of makes up their own rules, so what applied last year may not apply this year. Give it a shot, but they haven't done this in the past.

My son was in the Navy in 1988-1989, Groton, Connecticut. Went out on liberty one night and got drunk, wrecked his car (totaled). When the Court was through with him doing classes on base, he went back to Court and was told the Court would not exc...
If I'm correct in saying that Connecticut's DMV is suspending your son's license, I don't see an easy way out of this. Florida is going to honor any interstate suspension that pops up on their screen. Still, I don't necessarily think that your son must return to Connecticut. I've seen other State's accept DUI classes from other states. I would contact the DMV in Connecticut and see if there are any acceptable classes he can take here in Florida to satisfy them. If not, I would contact a Connecticut DUI attorney to see if there is anything they can do to challenge this old suspension. Start with the Connecticut DMV, maybe they've changed their policies over the years. However, my guess is that you'll get no where with Florida. I could be wrong, there are plenty of lawyers out there, so get several opinions on this.

Richard's answer above is 100% correct, you're too young to get in trouble on this one. That being said, I would also note that different states have different rules regarding the age of consent. It would be hard to prove which state in which you were having internet contact in, although some of these dating sites probably have your address information. You're safe, don't worry. Sounds like a scam though....
