Traffic Ticket Capital Waldo, Florida Disbands its Police Department

Recently, the city of Waldo, in Alachua County, Florida disbanded its police department.  This means that every person who has received a citation from any Waldo city police officer should take their citation to court.  This is because I believe that many officers will not show in court. If the officer fails to appear, the traffic ticket will be dismissed.

Mistake in the Order! Oral v. Written Orders in Florida

You leave court and realize, there is a mistake in the Order!  Clerks are people, what happens if the Clerk makes a mistake? For instance what happens if the judge orders one thing from the bench but the written order says something different? There is a mistake on the judgment, sentence or final order! This happens from time to time and if you have ever been to criminal or traffic court you know why. One hundred cases are handled within 120 minutes and there is simply a lot of paperwork moving really fast. Most of the orders are simply forms and the Clerk will check boxes as the judge speaks from the bench. Sometimes, the wrong box gets checked.
