A: It sounds like your husband pled guilty to a criminal offense and is now, or is about to be, in removal (deportation) proceedings before an Immigration Court. Even if a person is deportable, there may be forms of relief available to help them stay in the United States. Like our firm, there are many immigration attorneys and firms throughout the country that focus on immigration and deportation cases involving criminal convictions. You should consult with an immigration attorney who specifically has experience in criminal law to see if your husband has any forms of relief available to him, based on his specific facts.
A: A judge does not have to, and often won't, release a person who has been found incompetent to stand trial. Typically, that person will be sent to a hospital to be treated. This is called involuntary commitment and is authorized under Florida Statute 916.13, which lists the factors required for involuntary commitment. Once the person regains competency, they will typically be transported back to stand trial. Competency should not be confused with insanity. Competency relates to a person's ability to understand the process. For example, do they understand what they are charged with, what the judge's role is, what the prosecutor's role is, what the defense attorney's
role is. If the person can't understand the process, they can't be tried. Insanity is an affirmative defense that relates to whether the person knew what he or she was doing at the time of the offense, knew that it was wrong or understood the consequences based on a mental infirmity, disease or defect. Whether a person is found incompetent or insane, they can still be held in custody under statutes that relate to incompetency or insanity. ... Read More
A: In Florida, there are sentencing guidelines for each offense that typically drive a prosecutor's state offer and factor into a judge's decision on an appropriate and lawful sentence. A first time armed robbery conviction would score a substantial prison sentence. If a person has prior convictions for any offenses, it increases the bottom of that guideline sentence. The strength or weakness of the evidence will factor into a prosecutor's state offer. If the case is weak, a sentence well below a mandatory minimum or guideline sentence may be negotiated between the prosecutor and the defense attorney, but must be accepted by the judge. If the case is strong, the prosecutor may
seek a more severe sentence and may be unwilling to waive a mandatory minimum sentence or negotiate below the guidelines. If one of the individuals had a gun, each of the three can be charged with Armed Robbery with a firearm, although only the person who actually possessed the firearm would be subject to a mandatory minimum sentence. The mandatory minimum sentence for actual possession of a firearm during a robbery is ten years and that mandatory minimum sentence can only be waived by the prosecutor. Another factor would be whether the prosecutor wants one or two of the people to testify against the third person. If a defendant testifies for the prosecution, they may be able to negotiate a better sentence. ... Read More
