My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida
In July 2002 I deeded a home over to myself by signing the owner's name (she knew about it, "she said/she said" kinda thing). I am charged with Grand Theft over 100K and Forgery. The complaint was filed against me in December 2006, in December 2007 a warrant was issued and I was arrested. I have a worthless public defender who does not want to return calls etc...I read in your forum Statute of Florida Limitations for first degree felonies. Has this not exceeded the Statute of Limitations? If it is past the Statute of Limitations and I file a motion to drop charges and dismiss case can the Judge decide not to honor it? Please advise asap...I am facing up to 35 years in prison and get no help my from my public defender.
