As Daytona Beach Bike Week Approaches What Happens When You Are Arrested On Vacation

This varies a little bit from county to county but generally the case can be resolved with minimal court appearances. In a misdemeanor case all appearances can be waved with the exception of jury selection or trial. Most cases are resolved without a trial in county court (misdemeanor court). In circuit court (felony court) all appearances can be waived except for jury selection, trial or a plea to a felony. If the case is reduced to a misdemeanor a plea in absentia or plea and waiver can be used to close the case. Most suppression motions can be argued without a client but occasionally it is helpful to have a client testify. Retaining a private attorney can save you time and money by avoiding trips back and forth from your home state. This also helps you negotiate from a position of strength. Attorney Kevin J.
