- Q. What happens if you sherriff issued summons for criminal tresspassing
- A: What happens if a sheriff issues you a summons? You need to appear in court at the date on the summons.
- Q. Can a florida judge state that he isn't going to give time certain trial date due to the fact we live in maine?
- A: I don't really understand the question but I also don't know of any rule requiring that the florida judge schedule things in a particular way. Maybe ask a Florida Attorney.
- Q. Can a person's probation be revoked in Maine if their restitution is not fully paid yet, but they made a good faith effort?
- A: If the probation included a condition that the restitution must be paid before the end of probation, the answer is "yes." The state must file a motion to revoke probation before the probation ends. The judge would then decide what to do. If you have made efforts to pay, you would likely be given more time to make payments.
