You need to hire an attorney. Criminal law is extremely fact specific and you need an attorney to review your case and probably file a motion to suppress.
I am writing a book about real events that happened to me/family. I stored the documents for my book in a storage facility. The owners signed an NDA to be able to read my book so far. I moved out of state and they sold my property for non-payment. Can I sue them for breaching the NDA by disclosing... Read more »

No. Your non-payment constitutes a prior material breach that authorized them to sell your stuff and excuses their breach of the NDA.
For months the bus driver has been allowing the kids to cross right in front of the bus. Yesterday the bus driver drove off right as my son was starting to cross and other kids were still in the street. My son is young and is now scared of crossing the street.

This is not a criminal law question. If you think the driver is committing crimes, you need to contact the police.
answered on Jan 8, 2023
No, you can't. It is a common misconception that the person who reports something to the police is "pressing charges." That is now how it works. You may report the case, but one you do it is out of your hands. The government (the prosecutor) is always the one who brings the charges.... Read more »

It's ok for you. Not for them. They could be charged for felon in possession by the feds. Get rid of the guns and ammo or the roommate.

As Mr. Cramer has stated, you really need an attorney whether you qualify to have one appointed or whether you are able to retain private counsel. You can argue an affirmative defense, but that defense would be argued at trial and over 90% of criminal cases resolve before trial. Counsel will be... Read more »
I was trying to speak to my ex husband about our children, and he disrespectfully rolled up his window while repeating, “I don’t care.” My husband approached the vehicle. He slapped the car window (open palm) to get my ex’s attention and asked him to listen to me. My ex then rolled the... Read more »

It is always a good idea to consult with an attorney. Disorderly conduct can be charged as an infraction or as a misdemeanor. You should definitely at least speak to an attorney so they can advise your husband on the potential penalties of the charge. Having the disorderly conduct could come back... Read more »

You need to contact an attorney to review and assist you in your case. You need an attorney. Do not speak to anyone about the case and consult with an attorney. Based of what you're saying there are likely many issues with the officers conduct, but until an attorney looks at all the police... Read more »

Probably not. Most federal indictments are sealeed until served to prevent a target from fleeing.

There isn’t anything you can do about the tow and impound fees. You need to contact an attorney who handles traffic cases to help you with the reckless driving. It’s a class b misdemeanor. They don’t seem like a big deal, but I’ve have clients tell me their insurance company dropped them... Read more »
The officers police report states that the person being charged. Has the same name as me, but a different date of birth.

You need to hire an attorney to represent you. If you cannot afford one, the court will appoint an attorney for you.
I was released from prison in 2019. From my research, I can only qualify for SO Registry removal if my conviction was Misdemeanor Voyeurism and not Felony Voyeurism, however, since I'm on the registry I apparently don't qualify for a 402 reduction, and since I'm convicted of a felony... Read more »

I haven't reviewed the statute on the length of registration for your offense, but assuming it is a 10 year registration (10 year from the end of probation) you cannot get a 402 reduction while you're on the registry. There is no exception to this. So you have to be off the registry... Read more »

This is not a criminal law question. You need a family law specialist.

Aric is correct. Every police department should have a policy regarding body cameras. You should contact an attorney to represent you. They will know how to get the body cam and the police department's policy.

You should report it to law enforcement. I suspect they will tell you it's a civil matter(it's not, but that's how they get out of dealing with it), but I would still make the police report.
answered on Sep 12, 2022
If this is a criminal charge against you, then it appears the Government is dismissing one or all charges against you. However Jeopardy probably does not apply, which means you might get charged later within the SOL. Talk to your attorney and stay out of trouble as you may be watched.

Assuming I'm understanding correctly with your relative ages, that you will turn 15 in October and your partner will turn 18 in November, the answer is yes. Right now, until you turn 15, consensual sexual activity between you and your partner would be considered unlawful adolescent sexual... Read more »
