  • I pled to a DUI and I have to get an interlock put on my car but I dont have a car can I still do early termination?

    my case is front of judge tanya wilson, she was very nice to me. But basically i have come up to my half way mark, and i completed everything except for the 6 month interlock requirement. The problem is I do not have a car. What happens in this...

    William’s Answer

    Mr. williams is correct. I would only add that it is worth hiring a lawyer to file the motion for termination. The sooner you are off, the less likely you will get violated for something stupid that could result in you going to jail. Good luck to you and congrats for getting your stuff done. Thank God for Uber! right?

  • Ok I know what a C4 is and a motion for acquittal is

    The state in a criminal matter can never file such a motion correct-only the defense right? IE the state cants say to the judge hey we got this really strong case -why not just you go on and convict this guy now

    William’s Answer

    The defendant files C4 motions. The State can disagree and file a traverse and in rare cases even agree to the Defendant's motion. The State does not move for acquittal. If a prosecutor wants a case to do a way, they simply drop the charge.

  • Why won't the plaintiffs attorney agree to a diversion program or a plea deal?

    Charged with petit theft and state's attorney will not offer a diversion program and waiting to see if a plea deal can be worked out. Already through pretrial conference. What should I be prepared for at the hearing if a deal can't be agreed upon?

    William’s Answer

    If it is a first offense you usually will get in unless the Store objects. One of the reasons a store will object is that they may have a history of you stealing before (even if you are not charged) and there are some stores who will not agree to PTD as a matter of policy. Hire a lawyer who can better advise you the reasons the State is not agreeing to diversion.

    William’s Answer

    The juvenile was apparently sentenced and is now waiting placement. Sometimes a lawyer can ask for status hearings and ask the judge to push the DJJ to move the process quicker.

    William’s Answer

    I am sorry to hear about this situation. Unfortunately, you will need to find a good attorney in orlando and the consult with an experienced bondsmen. If she is not guilty, then she should get an aggressive lawyer to fight for her.
