I am not your attorney and don't know anything about your problem. Do not rely on my response other than as information used to hire an actual attorney.

This response is to an unknown person and is for general information purposes only. Under the terms of AVVO policies, an attorney/client relationship is not formed by the answering of questions posted on a public portal. The attorney answering these questions may or may not have an attorney-client relationship with the opposing party. Other conflicts may exist with the person asking the question. A conflict check must be performed in order for the attorney to determine ifa conflict exists under the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar should the questioner desire to use the attorney's services.
Criminal law has its own statutes, and rules of procedure. Those lawyers who do civil law are often not versed sufficiently in these matters. It is essential in any criminal matter that a criminal defense lawyer be retained to deal with the government and its lawyers.
This question is being directed to the criminal defense section of this service.
