“They didn’t read my my rights”

I get this question alot. How come when I was arrested, the police didn’t read me my rights? Many people believe that the arrest itself requires the reading of your rights. This is not correct. The reading of your miranda rights is required when (1) you are in custody, meaning you’re not free to leave, and (2) the police are going to ask you questions. Unless both apply, the rights don’t need to be read.

Most people on State Probation have the opportunity to petition the court for early termination once they’ve successfully completed half the probationary period.  The judge will make sure the probationer has completed all conditions.  I’ve seen many people who get violated and put back in jail during the second half of their probationary period.  You can avoid that risk by requesting the court terminate probation as soon as you’re eligible.

Florida driver’s license suspended because of a drug conviction?

An adjudication of guilt for possession (or sale) of a drug such as cocaine or marijuana results in a 2-year drivers license suspension under Florida statute 322.055.  How do you get a driver’s license after a suspension for a drug conviction?  You have to wait six months after the conviction before you’re eligible for a restricted license.  You’ll have to apply with the Bureau of Administrative Review.  For the location of the Bureau of Administrative Review in Ft. Myers, take a look at this page on my site.
