Do not worry! They have not joined all three cases together but, rather, what has been done is the consolidation of the cases before the same judge so that they all go to court on the same date . This is done for convenience purposes; Instead of your fiance going to court constantly, the Clerk of Court has grouped the three cases together yet each case is very much a separate matter where they will all be dealt with independent from each other. If your fiance wants to negotiate a plea bargain, then the grouping of the cases will have an advantageous affect since, under Florida's sentencing guidelines, cases that are grouped together for a plea qualify for a concurrent sentence as opposed to if they were handled separately, the exposure would be consecutive time. Each case must be analyzed and investigated separate. For instance, on the "grand theft" case, if all the prosecution has is a fingerprint. withe no other corroborative evidence, then under the circumstantial evidence laws, your fiance may have some very strong legal defenses. For the controlled substance within a 1000 feet case, the essential elements of proving an actual "sale" or "intent to sell" are not easy to prove for the prosecution making "simple possession" a much less serious crime. . I do not charge any money to do an initial consultation and conduct a preliminary analysis of all the cases so you would everything to gain and nothing to lose by inquiring with my office.
