Hi my friend got pulled over in Pennsylvania for the registration being out on the car he was driving he doesn’t have a lisence just a Mexican id when they searched him up in the system it shows that he has a warrant out for his arrest for a few years now for something that had happened in Florida that he had sex with a girl that was underage but the mom reported him to the cops that it was rape but the girl said it wasn’t what will happen what type of lawyer should we get for him
It sounds to me like he will face sexual battery or lewd and lascivious charges and he needs a criminal defense lawyer in the FL county that issued the warrant.
He will also almost surely have an immigration hold and require the services of an immigration lawyer.
Wishing you friend luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
He could be sentenced to prison and designated as a sexual offender. So I would hire the best criminal defense attorney you can afford that practices in the county where the charges originated from.
He needs a criminal defense lawyer ASAP. If the girl was underage she cannot consent to sex so they do not have to prove rape to charge him with sexual battery.
