I have a non-violent criminal background history from NYC that's 13 years old. I moved to Orlando, FL and can't find suitable housing. Is there anything that can be done about this?
Since you are placing the question under category of sex crimes and did not list the background history, it is certainly possible that you will have difficulties renting. If you were charged with a sex crime then you will have a diffcilt time finding a place, however its a misdemanor marijuana case or trespassing, etc than youw ill find something. Be optimistic and keep looking. As others have stated you can deny housing based on criminal history.See question

You have no liability unless you purchased it for her as a going away present. Then you would be contributing to the delinquency of a minor.See question

no. dmv and the criminal court have no connection. You are stuck with it. If you went to a formal review hearing and lost then you had a limited time to appeal that decision. If you did not request a formal review hearing you also lost your opportunity.See question

I am one of the victims in a Florida felony criminal case but I live out of state. The defendant is to be arraigned on these charges later this week. I have been asked by the assistant state attorney to provide a victim impact statement on what ...
It really depends how you are a victim, i.e. domestic violence victim or a felony DUI case where the defendant hit your unoccupied parked car or if someone broke into your car and stole your gym bag. Victim statements carry significant weight in Broward on Domestic violence and violent crimes. Accordingly, it helps to know what the case is. The state will make the defendant a plea offer based on the facts, charges, and your words if a violent crime.See question
My ex owes child support and does nothing about it, the judge ordered the writ yesterday. I live in one county , she lives in another.
It is over time for the police. They check and see who has a warrant and if they need some overtime they grab a few officers and they pick him up. If they don't then when he comes into contact with police they will take him in. Good luck.See question
Fleed from the cops
Its a criminal charge of fleeing and eluding. Its likely a 2nd degree but here is also a third degree felony in florida so check out the statute on the clerk's docket. The bond was $6,000 total. Count 1 or charge 1 was $5,000 and count 2 or charge 2 was $1,000. Look the person up on the Miami clerk of court and you will see the results of the case or whether the case is still pending. Good luckSee question

Love the DUi cases. Field sobriety exercises are requested. They can't be ordered. Big difference. DUI with accident requieres many things, here are some: Independent crash investigation by arresting officer( dui officer), miranda and a change of hats ( this is an expression used in the courts to allow the suspect to know that he is being subject to a criminal investigation because you must comply with an accident investigation). In a traffic investigation nothing you say can be used against you in court. In a dui investigation, everything shall be used against you. Miranda and the officer telling you that he/she is doing a criminal investigation and no longer a crash investigation is how a citizen is alerted to this fact. You said nobody saw the accident so the real question is when polcie arrived was the person in the vehicle? Actual physical control is essential for a dui conviction. A one car accident with no witnesses can lend itself to the fact that someone was driving other than the person found at scene. If there was no establishment of actual physical control there will be a motion to suppress for lack of reasonable suspicion to begin a dui investigation. Exercises are not relevant because they need to establish actual physical control first. But lets say they do by constructive possession ....then weight of person, medical issues goes to the jury. They will hear that the exercises were not performed correctly or that person failed but your attorney will be able to show why. Constructive possesion is determined by finding out who's car it is, who it is registered to, how far the individual was found from the car, etc Find an attorney with significant experience in DUI preferably someone associated the NCDD. National college of DUI defense. Best of luck.See question
there was a restraining order against me. how can I find out if it's still in place or if it's been lifted? where do I look? who do I call?
You do not need an attorney for this. Go to clerk of court. Additionally, if there is an injunction hearing you are requiered to receive service. That means a process server or policeman will hand you the paperwork. On a temporary restraining order/injunction it may take some time for you to be served so you may not know. The judge usually grants a hearing within a month if he grants a temporary. If they di not serve you then the judge will reset the hearing several times and extend the temporary injunction until you are served. Usually after a few court dates, if you are not served, the court will cease to reset hearing and will not extend the order. However, in extremely serious situations they will. The point being is that the 14th amendment allows for due process and that means in this situation taht you are requiered to receive notice of a hearing to detrmine the granting of an injunction/restraining order. You will be served.See question
