Can a judge arrest me for failure to appear when a waiver of appearance was filed by private counsel?
I contracted a lawyer to help me on a weak DUI case. This lawyer had me sing a waiver of appearance that includes wording from the Florida Rules Criminal Procedures. I later had to appear in court with the attorney who said the judge wanted to see me. In the court the judge was upset and even though the attorney took responsibility he asked the bailiff to take me in to custody. I was Jailed for over 25 days before the Failure to Appear was dismissed. The bond was forfeited and I had to post a new bond. The attorney did not respond to my calls and he withdrew as my attorney . What can I do?

Questions are: Will this be a VOP since it was only a civil infraction? Can my PO change this to a DWLS w/ knowledge? Should I wait to pay the ticket until my probation is complete? Should I proactively inform my PO of this and ask for mercy?
Typically, a civil infraction cannot be used as a basis to violate your probation. That said, your circumstances may...

It should not. There are some exceptions - property damage or injury to others - that may create a difficult situation....
Is there case law in Florida for charges being dismissed for incorrect dates on a Probable Cause Affidavit.
A person was arrested for DUI in Leon County Florida. The P/C has 3 dates on in. The only date that is correct is the date where the officer signed at the bottom. On the top of the P/C where the officer swears to the information the date is about 2 weeks in the future. On the first line of the P/C where the officer starts his narrative, it has the date before the incident occurred. Is there Case law showing presidents for dismissing charges for incorrect dates on P/C's
No. The ticket is the charging document. You can ask for a statement of particulars. You caqn cross examine onhe...
