The Nyquil defense rarely works. This article explains why: https://michigancriminaldefenseattorneys.org/nyquil-as-an-alcohol-test-defense/
The quantity of Nyquil taken for a cold is just too small by itself to cause an alcohol test to come back positive.

In the United States law, the term "Age of Consent" describes the age at which an individual, male or female, is considered legally of age to consent to participation in sexual activity. This means that individuals less than... Read more »
Like say an adult were to discuss a kink for example with a 17 year old. Just a simple topic or discussion. There is no hint of actually wanting to preform such acts one said 17 year old.

IMO you should forget trying to find out if you can "discuss sexual topics with a minor." Why? Because you are treading into a very dangerous area where most intelligent adults on this side of prison bars do not intentionally go.
This is a question for a test (not real life)
answered on Jul 19, 2019
This is a classic test question that has to do with the balance of privacy of patients vs the protection of property/health/life.
To answer this question, see Tarasoff. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarasoff_v._Regents_of_the_University_of_California .
I think that the therapist... Read more »

Legally none. At least not as you've described the situation. Practically you could try doing what he says. After all isn't he paying the bills.
I dropped out of school to work three to two jobs when my mom got sick. Back to a good full time job with $350 a week. Her boyfriend molested me and there wasn't enough evidence to arrest him so he moved back in and I moved out with my grandma. But she is just like my mom. My friends family... Read more »

You'd better stick with Grandma until you are 18. You may not like Grandma, but so long as her house is safe, secure, warm, you have bed and there is food on the table - do your chores, go to work and re-enroll in school. Dropping out of school is never a wise decision. You have your entire... Read more »

He did not enter the home. Is this still burglary??
answered on Feb 18, 2017
This is a good question which does not necessarily lend itself to an easy answer. I would make the legal argument that he did not enter and therefore could not have committed a burglary. However, if his body crossed the plane of the door while breaking it, a Court may deem that sufficient for... Read more »

The answer to your specific question is yes, she can move in with you. The underlying question might be can the two of you engage in sexual activity, legally? The answer is also yes. Iowa Code Section 709.4 (sexual abuse) does not make it a crime for persons of your age to engage in sexual... Read more »
I was told that once I turned 18 I could get into my money. My dad is refusing to sign the paper as he's the custodial owner of the account. What can I do?
answered on Jan 30, 2017
There are two issues here: (1) who owns the money, and (2) how do you get it. The money belongs to the child who is now an adult. "Under terms of a state's Uniform Gift to Minors Act or Uniform Transfer to Minors Act, a custodian controls these accounts while the child is a minor. But... Read more »

They can, but should they, probably not. Of course children seldom tell the entire story or accurately. I would not charge head-strong into the school planning on attacking the teacher. Instead I would suggest asking for a meeting to discuss the situation. I would listen with an open mind,... Read more »
Can he go to jail for talking to me when I'm 16 and he's 20
answered on Aug 12, 2016
Not likely, as long as you two are not doing anything illegal including him having you out past a city or town curfew, and your parents tell you that you can't leave the house but you do to go hang out with him, it is unlikely he gets arrested for you two simply being in the same vicinity of...
