This fine is devastating and seems way out of line with the infraction. There was no one at the intersection (except the officer), he was driving under the speed limit, and he made a conscious decision when he saw the stop sign that it would be safer to drive through it than to slam on the breaks....

I was making a purchase in a Chevron convenient store located in Dexter Oregon and they charged me 5 cents for a paper bag that was from WinCo is that against the law especially during this whole Corona virus epidemic
An Oregon consumer rights attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. That rule is being implemented by cities all over the nation and is more closely tied to recycling/waste reduction than to the pandemic. Good luck
FOIA requests can generally be made by any person to any federal agency, but requests can also be denied for any number of reasons. If you are requesting information from a local police department, this is often done using a public information request.
No. A black powder or muzzle-loader is considered a 'firearm' under Oregon law. Unlike federal law, Oregon views these types of 'antique firearms' the same as any other firearm. They do not differentiate between these types of firearms. You would have to have your rights...Read more »
I am not clear whether the Order restrains you or the other person. Regardless, whichever of you is restrained is prohibited from contact with the other - and that includes at work. Violate the Order and that person is likely to end up in jail.
In light of the moment-by-moment changes being made to federal, state and local laws as all the governments try to handle all aspects of the Corona virus pandemic sweeping the world I have decided not even to try to answer any of the scores of "what if" questions being posted by askers...Read more »
I had a friend who wanted a conviction off his record. I went with him to speak to an attorney I recommended. At one point the attorney told my friend he could go back to the original attorney that represented him on the case that resulted in the conviction and that attorney would do the Motion to...

It is almost never free to set aside cases. It can cost anywhere from $700-$800 for the attorneys fees. Its a fairly simplistic process. You do not have to, and most folks do not go back to the original attorney who handled the case.
You may petition to restore your Oregon gun rights from Oregon. That allows you to have firearms under Oregon law, and obtain an Oregon Concealed Handgun License. It would not fully restore your federal rights, as the feds require restoration in the jurisdiction of conviction. So this would...Read more »
Oregon law allows allows a victim of child sexual abuse to bring a lawsuit at any time until the victim turns 40 years old or 5 years after the victim knew or should have known of the causal connection of the injury and the child abuse, whichever is later. You should contact an attorney as soon...Read more »
This isn't a legal question. However using common sense would go a long way to prevent such tragedies. You and the surviving members of your family should either get rid of any guns you have in your homes or be a responsible gun owner and get a secure gun safe and store you guns there. If...Read more »
I was working with a guy on his business. I created a website for him and I was working on a crowdfunding campaign for him. I guess I didn't complete the project fast enough for him and now he is saying he is gonna press charges on me for fraud and theft and contacted a lawyer. Is this a civil... Read more »
Hello my landlord takes rent off for cleaning work. For the last 6 months he is supposed to clear the dept off of cozy.com this month i told we won't pay the rent till it's cleared. Now he posted a 3 day late fee of 1200 when the rent is only 878
It is a bit unclear what you mean that he posted a 3 day late fee notice. 72 hour notices can only be used for demanding payment of rent - and only rent, NOT including late fees, utility charges, fees, etc. Including non-rent charges in a 72 hr notice renders the notice defective and...Read more »
I have my extremely mature and responsible 16 yr old niece watching my kids before school (she will graduate from high school with an associates degree at 18). She gives my son his Adderall which is a controlled substance (she has an exemplary record of administering ADHD meds for 2 years with... Read more »
Generally speaking the custodial parent makes the decisions about day to day care of the child and does not need the other parents consent. But I don't know what your custody/parenting time order says so that may or may not follow this general rule. You can always go to court and get a...Read more »

We are homeless and he is my saftey at night he makes sure I eat and makes sure we have a place to sleep. They arrested him without... Read more »
The bottom line is you cannot make this go away, only the District Attorney or the Judge can. It maybe that the D.A. will not pursue the case, particularly if you do not cooperate, but it is up to them. You can talk with your boyfriend's attorney to see if you can help with his defense but...Read more »
Your question is a bit confusing. You have no legal obligation to report anything to the Police if you do not wish to. Once reported however, control of the matter is out of your hands and the district attorney will decide whether they wish to proceed with criminal charges (though they may have...Read more »
