Legal Answers
27 Questions Answered
Q. Can I get in trouble for using marijuana if I have a medical card. I'm on a deferred disposition
A: If the deferred disposition says no marijuana, you would be in violation of the agreement if you had marijuana. You can ask the court to amend the conditions to remove this because you have a medical card.
Q. Is there anyway to resolve an out of state bench warrant without going to that state?
A: You can try resolving it from Maine but will need a Florida lawyer because it's a Florida case. I lawyer in Florida may be able to get the warrant vacated and resolve it without you having to return to Florida.
Q. Will prosecution still send evidence if they plan to drop the case?
A: The prosecutor is required to turn over all evidence and information they have on your case, including any exculpatory evidence, up until the point the case is dismissed or finished. If they have not turned over something, you should bring it to the Judge's attention at the next court date, and send a written request to the DA's office.
