Got a driver in possession of marijuana ticket and my recommendation is expired.Am i in trouble? I just got a ticket for possession of marijuana ticket and my recommendation is expired. I have been planning to go renew but haven’t had the time. My question is if I go get a new card, would I still be able to fight this ticket? I know that the start date of when the recommendation was issued, so I’m worried that it might make it more of a headache to fight it than to just pay for it and move on. HELP!

John B: What the hell is there to fight at the ticket time you were expired? Some Judge might just question your necessity.

Can my boyfriend get out of jail early with good behavior for a probation violation? My boyfriend was just recently sent to jail for 30 days cause of a probation violation. Is there anyway he can get out early on good behavior? We both live in Ohio too by the way.
I know 30 days isn’t like a really long time, but I just don’t like the fact that i’m pregnant, not to far away from my due date and he isn’t here with me. I just really want to know if there is a way he can get out on good behavior even with it being a probation violation.

zelo: It’s just 30 days. It’ll go by quick
candy g: more than likely NOT, him being out in the 1st place was his reward, he chose to mess that up by violating parole hence why he is back in jail, you can HOPE he gets out but do not expect it.
Tod: The jail may automatically give a certain ratio of days due to overcrowding. For example, what they call 2 for 1. If you do 1 day the system gives you credit for 2. So you do half your time. So 30 days would only require him to do 15 days. Trust me, if your jail has some similar policy, he knows about it by now.
Jonathan H: don’t know, but if he does eventually you might wish he hadn’t. food for thought.
Michael T: charged and convicted
out on conditional release
and being a real Dumb Ass he violates those conditions and gets sent back for 30 days
Why Bother hoping?
the Dumb Ass will violate again or do another Crime to get locked up again
Raise your standards or the only time your kid to be will see his father is on visiting days at whatever prison the Dumb Ass will be residing in
You picked yourself a real winner you have the Choice of keeping him or getting rid of him
and we know you will most likely do the wrong thing
How has this affected law-enforcement? It’s meant that St Lucie County prosecutors and police detectives have had to absorb rapidly each new technical advance. Swift changes in new investigative methods and the maze of jurisdictional problems have meant that criminal-defense lawyers have needed to stay current with these changes too. Occasionally these jurisdictional points of law require federal charges. That means that you not only need a criminal lawyer who has extensive experience employed in St Lucie County criminal courts, but you will also need someone who has experience defending clients in federal courtrooms.
Taking into consideration the changes in the strategy which law-enforcement now uses to make arrests, if you’ve been charged with a sex offense under Florida State statute 847, Internet Pornography, you should understand what this demand is and its potential effects. There are many aspects of this statute. Based on the complexity of the Internet Sex Crime regulations, only a skilled Indian River County criminal attorney who has received success managing this kind of criminal defense is qualified to defend you in Court.

colin: Bachelors Degree in a Law related field followed by obtaining a Juris Doctor (JD) at Law School, followed by passing the BAR exam in your state.
ETA: 8 years
Cost: 150k+ (50+ Bachelors, 100+ JD)
One could argue that its a hard path, another could argue that there are in overpopulation of lawyers in the States. If you’re committed to lots of school and debt, anyone can become a criminal lawyer.
Best to sit in on a couple court sessions to see how you like public speaking
Betsy: You need to go to college school and complete a bachelor’s degree. While you are in college, you will need to take the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test). You fill out a form and pay a fee in order to take the test. You will also need to apply for admission to law school. The process is quite similar to the college admission process.
Most criminal defense attorneys I know first worked as prosecutors. They were assistant district attorneys.
