Good that you see clearly your mistake. Good that you have no record and are not in jail. Since you are suddenly stealing I guess you are broke, so you need to ask that an attorney be appointed to represent you when you go to court -- an/or you might call a criminal defense attorney as soon as...

However, I was never read my Miranda rights when first arrested and never was until I was in front of the judge for my very first ever court date... a day later. I’m not sure what to do as this is my first ever run in with the law.

You should retain a criminal defense attorney. He or she may be able to make all the difference. Do not face this alone! Once the case is resolved, you could probably expunge it. Good luck!
I need to know what i do next to prevent myself from going to jail and also making my insurance go up to $500 .

The short answer is to hire a local traffic attorney in the area where you got the ticket. There may be something you can do yourself such as requesting a PJC or attending a Safe Driving Class for a reduction but these options can have unforeseen consequences based on your prior driving record and...

A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. It might be a longshot, as you were not the operator, but if you rented through a credit card, you could look into whether the card offered any type of protection. If you have a vehicle, you could look into... Read more »

My father in law can't be trusted. Wondering how easy it would be to get him if he fleed the state being on house arrest and facing 4 felonies all drug related. I would be responsible for his bond of 20k if he did.
answered on Jul 5, 2020
Your question is somewhat unclear "can out" ??? The rest of it seems to ask if you are going to have to pay his bail bond if he flees, and that you don't trust him. So, the first question is why did you put up a bond for him in the first place if you don't trust him to honor... Read more »

Yes, and although this is not directly international law, my suggestion is that you cut him off from you social media and contact local law enforcement.

Depends on the circumstances and facts surrounding the allegations. How bad was the assault? Was it on going? Were there long-lasting injuries? Were the kids present? Was a weapon used? Were alcohol or drugs a factor?

Your ex would be able to pick up his child from another person's home without your consent. Hearing your story I'm afraid that you are setting yourself for a terrible custody case.

Lady was warranted and arrested for drug charges and child abuse charges for drug bust but was not at the home only share address there. She has been in jail for almost 6 months. Is this legal??
answered on Aug 16, 2018
I doubt that you have been supplied all the facts. If these people are close to you, I would ask to see the affidavit for the warrant and the police reports.
Unless she is in federal court, then it is not a federal crime

I was sixteen and my bf was 18 when the put a restraining order on him, its been about a year since everything happened, i am now 17 and I want to get rid of it. Is there any way it can be appealed or lifted if i give a statement?
answered on Apr 6, 2018
At 17 why do you think you have any say in the matter or that a statement from you is in any way relevant? Ask your parents, it is their restraining order not yours. At 18 the restraining order will no longer apply to you unless you are still living with your parents and even then, only when you... Read more »
My dad took a plea deal for a felony drug charge; However, he came to the US when he was 17 on a visa and he married my sibling(s) mom and later in life married my mom who are both citizens. He was told that he could be facing deportation. Is there any way he could petition for citizenship?
answered on Apr 4, 2018
This is not the only challenge that your father faces. I strongly recommend he make an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney as soon as possible.
The individual that falsely testified at someone's trial wants to step up with the truth but is afraid of getting charged with anything

That person needs to speak with an attorney immediately. A lot depends on the facts and circumstances of the testimony.
While a GREAT question, the internet is not the best place to do that.
Thanks for the inquiry!

BEST to talk to an experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer where the Warrant for Arrest has been issued.
These things tend to be a bit complicated.
