I am 16 years old and I have known my best friend for over 3 years, and we both like each other and would like to date. However, he is 4 years older than me so I am not sure if we would be breaking the Florida law if we dated or kissed?
If you are 16 and your friend is under 23 you will be ok.See question

My fiancée got a second technical violation for a positive drug test with in 7 months from each other he got out the first time and the judge just add 6 more months to his probation. He has been on probation for about 35 months now has never got i...
Technical does not mean minor. Judges get tired of people who violate probation. In fact, Judges will increase the punishment for a second violation. however recent case law may be helpful to your fiancee. You should check with a local lawyer. If the probation period runs before a judge hears the VOP based upon a technical violation, your fiancee may walk. Good luck!See question
I just moved to Florida in Feb. 2016 from Lawrenceville GA. I got a speeding ticket in GA in 2015 and paid it, but for some reason I just got this super speeder fee of $200. Do I really have to pay this since I don't live in GA and never intend on...
I would be concerned. Many states are part of an interstate compact on drivers licenses . I know Florida is part of that compact but i am not sure if Georgia is a member. If Georgia is, you could have an issue. Also if you ever drive through GA you could have an issue. It is best to take care of your obligations but of course that is your choice.See question

My colleagues are correct. Hiring a lawyer who is familiar with DOC issues may be helpful to your boyfriend getting help with his treatment on the inside. However, lawyers will not likely take this case on a contingency so be prepared to pay someone.See question
I picked my husband up from jail and took him straight to rehab the same day in doing so he forgot to register as a convicted felon its been 3 weeks with all that said when he does go to register hes afraid he will be locked up that day
He is in a tough situation. Florida Statutes 775.13 requires registration within 48 hours. violation of this statute could be a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the original charge I believe. It is possible he could go to jail. What is the alternative? Not register and hope for the best?
Your husband does have a legitimate excuse but it will be up to the State whether they want to arrest or even file charges in the first place. I am sorry he finds himself in this position as it does not appear that he willfully was trying to evade registration.See question

was caught shoplifting from walmart a 2nd time even though it was a misunderstanding they still charged me because of my first offense 3 months prior. Would this require jail time? And Due to the misunderstanding of this time should I fight it if ...
You should fight it if you are truly innocent. The prosecutor will likely not believe any defense you may raise but a Jury could. Jail time? It is possible. Although we have handled cases for people who have had multiple theft charges and they avoided jail. You never know. One thing for sure is that most prosecutors will NOT like the fact that you have a new charge for the same alleged behavior.See question

Mr. Cohen is correct. if you had a lawyer for your first charge, you need to contact them and let them know. It does not look good to prosecutors if you break the law during the time they gave you a break by giving you diversion. At this point you may need a lawyer if you do not have one. You are in a tough situation.See question
