Based on my familiarity with the local system I can advise you as to how your judge handles your kind of case and the usual time frame and outcome for your particular type of charge. Depending on your case we can file a waiver of your appearance and I will make all of your appearances for you so you will not have to take off work or make arrangements to travel back to Florida to appear in court. We may have you execute a plea en absentia as a way of resolving your case. If the court requires you to complete a period of probation you may be able to do that from your home state of residence. Depending on the level of your case there may be only a monetary fine imposed.
