What is the difference between hiring an attorney and using the appointed public defender?

What is the difference between hiring an attorney and using the appointed public defender? | Brian Gabriel | Law Offices of Gabriel & Gabriel LLC | Navigating Justice for the Criminally Accused | Call Today For Your FREE CONSULTATION | (561) 622-5575 | http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ | 4601 Military Trail, Suite 206 Jupiter, FL 33458 In Florida, the Public defender system is still quite overloaded. Hiring a private attorney is going to allow you the ability to work one on one with a person that you have a higher level of comfort with. As the client, you have the ability to choose the attorney you're going to be working with, whereas with the Public Defender, they are appointed to you. They don't get an opportunity to choose their clients, but you certainly, with the Public Defender, do not get the ability to choose which attorney you like. Again, With a private attorney you have the ability to research their background, their qualifications, and make that decision on your own. If you have any questions about hiring an attorney or a public defender visit our site at http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ for more information and a free consultation.

What is the difference between jail and prison in Florida?

What is the difference between jail and prison in Florida? | Brian Gabriel | Law Offices of Gabriel & Gabriel LLC | Navigating Justice for the Criminally Accused | Call Today For Your FREE CONSULTATION | (561) 622-5575 | http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ | 4601 Military Trail, Suite 206 Jupiter, FL 33458 In Florida, each county has a county jail. It is a facility that is run by the county sheriff's office. In Palm Beach County, for instance, we have the Palm Beach County jail. Again, it is run by the Palm Beach County sheriff's office. Throughout the state of Florida, we have the department of corrections. That is where all the prisons are located in. Spread throughout the state, each prison is run by the department of corrections. They house individuals that have been convicted of felony offenses. The county jail is used to house people that have been convicted of misdemeanor offenses or individuals charged with felony crimes that have not yet been sentenced by the court. That's the difference between those two facilities. If you have any questions about the difference between jail and prison in Florida, visit our page at http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ for more information and a free consultation.

What is the difference between probation and parole in Florida?

What is the difference between probation and parole in Florida? | Brian Gabriel | Law Offices of Gabriel & Gabriel LLC | Navigating Justice for the Criminally Accused | Call Today For Your FREE CONSULTATION | (561) 622-5575 | http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ | 4601 Military Trail, Suite 206 Jupiter, FL 33458 If you're placed on probation, that is a level of supervision that the Department of Corrections, again, is supervising you, and, generally, a person is placed on probation when they do not go to jail or prison: instead they're placed on a period of probation, to be monitored, to be watched and to complete a list of different conditions that a court may impose. A person who is on parole is an individual coming out of prison that, again, is at the end of their sentence, and the court system is setting a lightening of the security, or a lightening of the supervision of that individual; and it's going to let them out of prison, and, instead, is going to let them be reporting through a parole officer and following those rules. If you have any questions about the differences between probation and parole in Florida or specific details about your case, visit our page at http://www.gabriellawteam.com/faqs/pr... for more information and a free consultation.

What is the DNA registry?

What is the DNA registry? | Brian Gabriel | Law Offices of Gabriel & Gabriel LLC | Navigating Justice for the Criminally Accused | Call Today For Your FREE CONSULTATION | (561) 622-5575 | http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ | 4601 Military Trail, Suite 206 Jupiter, FL 33458 In Florida if you're convicted of a felony, the court would generally require an individual to submit to a DNA sample. That sample is then given to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement so they can enter that information into the registry. Again, that is a huge data bank of DNA samples. When law enforcement is doing an investigation and they have a DNA sample, they have something of known value to compare their DNA sample against. That is how they match a DNA from a crime scene to a potential individual that maybe in the registry. If you have questions about the DNA registry, visit our page at http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ for more information and a free consultation.

What is the penalty for violation of a restraining order in Florida?

What is the penalty for violation of a restraining order in Florida? | Brian Gabriel | Law Offices of Gabriel & Gabriel LLC | Navigating Justice for the Criminally Accused | Call Today For Your FREE CONSULTATION | (561) 622-5575 | http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ | 4601 Military Trail, Suite 206 Jupiter, FL 33458 Punishment for violation of restraining order in Florida depends upon the history that an individual has for domestic violence, and why that protective order comes about. I see a lot of times where an individual has been arrested for a domestic violence crime, they've been placed on a probationary period and that the victim will also have a protective order entered. Later during the probationary period there may be the allegation that there was some form of improper conduct or improper contact of the 2 individuals. Depending upon what level of contact and what that conduct was, the court from those pieces of evidence will determine what would be an appropriate punishment. I have seen where the court has not done much punishment at all, and I have seen where the court has just warned individuals "Don't do it again," and I have seen where courts have sentenced individuals to rather lengthy jail term sentences. If you have any questions about penalties for violating restraining orders then visit our page at http://www.gabriellawteam.com/faqs/re... for more information and a free consultation.

What is the point of a suspended sentence?

What is the point of a suspended sentence? | Brian Gabriel | Law Offices of Gabriel & Gabriel LLC | Navigating Justice for the Criminally Accused | Call Today For Your FREE CONSULTATION | (561) 622-5575 | http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ | 4601 Military Trail, Suite 206 Jupiter, FL 33458 When a Court suspends a sentence, it is giving an individual a second shot. It is saying, "I am not going to impose that sentence at this point in time. Instead, I am going to suspend it. Place you generally on a probationary period. Give requirements that you must complete. As long as you complete the requirements and stay out of trouble, pick up no new arrests, then the Court will not impose that suspended sentence." Again, it gives the Trial Judges the ability to motivate an individual to stay out of trouble by suspending a worse punishment over their heads. If you have questions about what a suspended sentence entails or matters pertaining to your case, visit our site at http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ for more information and a free consultation.

Their the individual that your attorney has to work with, to determine whether or not the case can be resolved through some type of resolution. Or, if it's going to be a trial, they're going to be the attorney on the other side. It is always imperative to have your attorney have a good working relationship with these state prosecutors.

If you're in a domestic relationship, then the classification of those crimes changes to being domestic in nature.

It is manufactured in Kentucky, and it has been being used in Florida for the last fifteen to twenty years. Again, there's the possibility that Florida may be changing to the new device that that manufacturer is making, but that has not yet occurred.

What should I do if I am asked to take a field sobriety test in Florida? | Brian Gabriel | Law Offices of Gabriel & Gabriel LLC | Navigating Justice for the Criminally Accused | Call Today For Your FREE CONSULTATION | (561) 622-5575 | http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ | 4601 Military Trail, Suite 206 Jupiter, FL 33458 When law enforcement make a traffic stop, and they request an individual to perform field sobriety exercises, it is up to that individual to make a determination whether or not he wishes to do it. In Florida, it is not against the law to refuse to do those tests, because they are designed to determine whether or not a person's normal faculties are impaired. Absent that evidence, a lot of times the state will not have sufficient evidence to end up convicting you, so a lot of times it may be in your best interest to not perform those exercises.

Generally speaking, you need to contact a good attorney and a bondsman. Those two individuals working together will be able to determine what the charges are, whether or not a bond is allowed, and if it is allowed, to get that posted so that release of that individual can occur, generally within a couple hours. That person can get home and then be able to meet with both the attorney and the bondsman again, to outline the different facts that occurred.

What should I do if I have been charged with a third or fourth DUI? | Brian Gabriel | Law Offices of Gabriel & Gabriel LLC | Navigating Justice for the Criminally Accused | Call Today For Your FREE CONSULTATION | (561) 622-5575 | http://www.gabriellawteam.com/ | 4601 Military Trail, Suite 206 Jupiter, FL 33458 Individuals charged with a third or fourth DUI have to take into effect that there is a high probability that the state of Florida will up those charges to a felony offense. In Florida, an individual that has been charged with a third DUI, that has priors within the last ten years, can sometimes be classified as a felony offense, and for a fourth time offense, will routinely be classified as a felony offense. Again, looking into and being prepared for those actions to happen means that your attorney would assist you in being able to gather the significant pieces of evidence that are going to be needed for an offense of that type of severity, because you're going from a simple misdemeanor traffic crime DUI to now a felony offense DUI that certain circumstances can subject you to five to fifteen years in prison.

That would be odors of alcohol, blood shot eyes, problems with balance, odors of other drugs. They're also going to look for cognitive impairment, and that is whether or not a person is acting appropriately, responding with the appropriate level of respect to law enforcement, whether or not their physical skills are diminished in providing paperwork.

The judge determines what your sentence will ultimately be. Different players do have an input into that sentence, that being the state attorney's office, and your attorney, the defense attorney. If there is an agreement of what a sentence should be, then it is up to the court to agree with the agreement. In essence, the court would listen to what a plea bargain was, and if the court is satisfied that that type of punishment is appropriate considering the facts of the case, the court would accept it. If the court does not believe it's appropriate, then the court may impose or inform the parties that it is not willing to accept that type of punishment and wants something more severe or less severe, depending upon the facts of the case.

Those drug courts deal with the lowest level of drug offenses. That is, simple possession drug offenses. Most drug courts are determined that if you are a drug dealer, you are not getting the help, but if you are simply possessing drugs and illegally using them, then we will try to give you help. We will try to give you counseling. We will try to minimize the damage that this will have to your permanent criminal history. Again, those types of drug courts are set up for those first time offenders with a minimum of criminal activity in their case.
