What does "bond set at CT1- 1000, CT2- ROR" mean??
You can post 1000 bond cash if you're local and you have it on hand. When the case is over you'll get that money back from the county. The other charge ROR means you don't need to post anything since he's being released on his recognizance on that probably minor count. If you aren't local or don't have the cash, you have to call a bondsman and pay a fee equal to 10 percent of the bond. So a hundred bucks plus admin fees. They'll post the rest of the bond and then THEY get the whole 1000 back when case is over. You'll need to get a lawyer to fight the case or if the person qualifies a public defender will be appointed. This applies basically through the whole state but for sure here in Hillsborough county where I specialize.See question
My bf is probation and got a domestic violence charge against me ... He was arrested but i didnt press charges because he didnt hit me i hit him ....what is going to happen
If the DV arrest was a misdemeanor then he will most likely be denied bond by the first appearance judge and held in jail because of the pending VOP. He will have to face a technical violation judge in division K (Judge Perry) and that court date could be a few weeks from now. You can hire an attorney to file a motion for bond on the VOP in front of the judge AND MOVE UP THE COURT DATE so he doesn't spend weeks in jail before an arraignment- and you could come to court to testify that he didn't do anything. That will give him the best chance of getting out quickly. This specific advice only applies if everything happened in Hillsborough County, which is where I specifically practice personally.See question
relative rear ended a state trooper (trooper to hospital) and was then arrested on 6 charges. two felonies, both in the third, DUI with controlled substances plus paraphernalia. relative declined to blow and now has license suspended or revoked 1...
Usually someone else who works there finds out and the rumor spreads within a couple days. Or they could have a proactive HR department. If they came looking for the relative it could have been because he missed court. Or because they suspect that person of being involved with other offenses or crimes. Or they maybe thought the relative was trying to skip bail.See question
They were caught, but not charged or arrested as the mushrooms had to be tested. Was told they would recieve a call from the county
You should definitely call a Hillsborough County Criminal Defense Attorney to give you the best advice on how to defend your case. If the mushrooms come back from the FDLE lab in Tallahassee with positive results, you're looking at a felony criminal charge. You'll be direct filed and an arrest warrant will be issued against you. You'll need to post bond at Orient Jail in eastern Hillsborough County and your attorney will begin litigating the case on your behalf. A major issue will be if you knew that the mushrooms were in fact contraband. Whether you admitted this to the cops will become a big deal. As will other important facts of your case. The internet no matter what will not serve as an adequate defense attorney. If you're trying to hide this from your parents or loved ones and not hiring an attorney because you don't have the money but they do, then that's a bad call. You need to address the problem head on.See question
Is it jail and probation? Or a fine and probation or just paying a fine and community service?
My colleague Michael is right. Most likely you could qualify for diversion - in Hillsborough county the diversion program is called MIP: the Misdemeanor Intervention Program. That' program is administered by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. Any Tampa criminal defense attorney can give you advice to be sure whether you qualify for that or not. -Maj Vasigh, Tampa Criminal Lawyer #DefendTampaSee question
If i get probation for a misdemeanor do I have to get a job? I am 5 months pregnant and was planning on being a stay at home mom.
If you're 5 months pregnant, even if employment was a standard term of misdemeanor probation in Hillsborough County, you could most likely have the court order to waive that requirement under the circumstances. You can't get what you don't ask for, right?See question
First offense to a second degree misdemeanor which up to 60 days in jail and or up to 500 in fines. Is it possible to just have to pay a fine does this ever happen? Can you get no probation or jail time?
Absolutely possible. You're most likely going to qualify for a diversion program called MIP. The charge will be dropped if you successfully complete the program.See question
My wife is chronically ill. I need caregiver help but can't afford one. Can he get a reduced sentence or can petition for it or file a form for anything like this for our situation?
It depends on the judge and the reasons why and how long ago the sentence was imposed. You can file a motion to reconsider. Consider calling a Tampa Criminal Defense Attorney for a free consultation about what the chances of success may be depending on the individual circumstancesSee question

They can charge you with a probable cause level of evidence under the theory of "constructive possession." However, you may have a valid defense in that the contraband was not within your ability to maintain dominion and control. Simple vicinity to contraband isn't enough to prove the case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. Call a Tampa criminal defense attorney ASAP for a consult and how to best defend yourself at the early stages of the case.See question

You're officially done with probation when the judge signs the order terminating probation. So don't do anything crazy until that happens.See question
