bit of a law question

Recommended Posts

hey everyone got a small question for you, a family member of mine who i have never liked was arrested last year in Florida on 30 counts of possessing child porn on his computer, now i am hopeful he goes to jail for this and not just cause i dont like him but also cause of what he did, but his pretrial date keeps getting pushed back, it was supposed to be back in February i think and then it got pushed to july and now its october, with all of the evidence why does it keep getting pushed back? i would think something like this would have already be done and over with and he would be in jail but so far no and from what i have heard from other family he and his wife might be moving back to here, which i think would be a mistake, but whats your thoughts?

With that limited amount of info, my WAG would be that either he is negotiating a plea deal, the States/Feds case isn’t that good, or he is helping them bust other people. Is it a state case or Federal case? Cases can go slow when you have the money to pay a good lawyer.

Since you asked for thoughts on this situation, I'll share mine:  Distance from disorder.

HTH,

it says no bail but i know for a fact he is out, so i dont know whats going on none of this makes sense to me

You should tell that to the news organizations in his area.  They love to follow-up on cases like this where the local authorities are unable to give an answer that is anything besides disgusting.  There should at a minimum be a very heavy conditioned set of rules for bail in his case, but outrage over any bail will be the reaction.  Might help expedite the trial date, or get him back in jail awaiting trial.  

Children 3-11...ugh.  If it's true, head-wall-spike comes to mind, and I try to be a better person than a thought like that.

On top of what Dave said it could also keep getting bumped by other trials.  Many times they’ll set a couple trials for the same day and courtroom and start whichever is ready or higher priority.  

So many Monday trial dates get pled out the Friday before.

My guess is he's working a deal and rolling over on everybody he knows connected to his charges. LE wants the big fish. 

My advice is to stay as far away from this as you can. Nothing good will come from your curiosity.

As long as he has money for the lawyer, and the lawyer has money for the judge, these things can press on for years it seems.

You won’t likely convince me that criminal court is anything more than an extortion racket.

great answers to everything! as to keeping my distance i am, everything new i hear about it is from my other uncle and i will be honest thinking back in the past and remembering how he treated his kids ( 3 all grown now two are daughters) he would "play" as he called it with them

 by punching them hard in the stomach and other stuff that would cause them pain and from what my other uncle has said he used to also say stuff that if you knew the guy like i do would think now after this that it all makes sense and i am hope they do get more perverts out of this if that is what he is doing but i also hope he gets what he deserves

A former co worker got convicted of child porn and never did any time! In Tennessee.

I’d be surprised if anyone that can afford a lawyer has done time on possession of porn. Unless they were a major distributor. Most of the enforcement is geared towards finding those that are making it.

The wheels of justice grind slowly.  As stated above, leave this alone.  fugggggeddddddaaaaabbbboudddddittt
