Yes. Constructive possession. The police just to prove that it was your firearm and that you had control over it, or were able to exert control over it. Much easier if they found you in possession of the firearm, but not impossible to prove.... Read more »

Expungement may be possible but is dependent on when he was "acquitted," how the case was handled, and what he was accused of. There are different rules for felonies, misdemeanors, and traffic violations. As of 2021, most charges that did NOT result in a conviction can be expunged. He... Read more »

The names of government agencies and programs are essentially trademarks or service marks, and are infringed if private entities promote goods or services with confusingly similar names.
My husband got arrested in April and his parole officer violated him in June but he hasn't been to court for the charge from April and the parole board already stated that they are sending him to prison

It depends on the conditions of your husband's parole and whether or not he is in violation of any of those conditions.

You say "any watchlist"-- a minor can be a person of interest to criminal justice agencies.
A minor could be on a no fly list.
If you are concerned that you are, you would want to avoid social media of any type, limit emails, and consult with a criminal defense attorney.

Probably not, but you certainly could. You need to immediately retain a criminal lawyer.
My boyfriend set it up so that his child support payments are deducted from his paycheck directly to Alabama DHR from day 1. We have every single pay stub from when it started. The kids are now 5 and prior to her putting him on the two boys lived with him. A few months ago we took her to court due... Read more »

You need to answer a few questions. Prior to him paying when they turned one, was mom on assistance? If she received any payments from the state of Alabama for assistance without a child support order, the state of Alabama can collect it if an order of support is ever entered. This is probably what... Read more »
In December 2018 I was given 2 Thrivent Financial debit cards loaded with $250 each, $500 total. Both cards have "valid thru 09/21". I used one of the cards for around $25 shortly after receiving it, but the next time I tried to use it the card was declined. My wife tried to use the other... Read more »

I still don't have a court date. I paid it all back in full and even wrote an apology letter to the CEO. This is my first offense. Is it possible for me to just receive probation?
answered on Aug 11, 2019
Receiving just 'probation' means that you were convicted of an offence and that was your sentence. An apology letter and paying back the money shows that you're serious and remorseful. If you want to avoid a conviction think of perhaps some community service and perhaps addressing... Read more »
During the time my husband was serving time in Georgia, he missed 2 court appearances in Alabama. Alabama now has him being held for extradition in the grounds of fugitive of justice. His time served in Georgia was ended on 3/24/19, However, Georgia is saying they can hold him as long as Alabama... Read more »

You could have possibly saved your husband a considerable amount of jail tome if you would have hired an attorney in Alabama when he was serving his sentence. The attorney could have had your husband transferred to Alabama undwr the Interstate Agreement on Detainers.
He will always need an... Read more »

Yes, you should worry. You posted this under "Federal Crimes". Its unlikely to be a federal crime, unless you took the girl across a state line for the purpose of having sex with her, or maybe if you had sex with her on federal property, like Redstone Arsenal, which is next door to your...

15-5-30 is wrongly applied by LEO pretty regularly and even by overzealous ADOC guards. Why is this law not applied directly as it is written? If I am arrested for failure to ID do I have a deprivation of rights under color of law case if I committed no crime and the officer has no RAS or PC?
capital offense , in collateral stage , federal level , all claims denied

This question isn't real clear. Taking an educated guess, it appears that you may mean that a person was convicted of a capital offense, and that the defendant has exhausted all levels of relief in federal court. You ask about a "successive Rule 32 petition". If by... Read more »

The best way is just not show up for court and the DA will have to dismiss the case for lack of prosecution
answered on May 13, 2015
First thank you for taking this step. However, there is much needed information to answer your question. Is he still in jail, what was the charge? did he have a trial or enter a guilty plea? did he appeal his conviction?
if you have any of this information and would like to discuss,... Read more »
