You must speak to a PI attorney immediately. If the case was dropped liability is likely established. Your damages can be recouped. Hurry though because there may be notice restrictions depending on the status of the truck and driver.
During an actual evacuation in a public high school, a teacher was directed by administration to leave the building immediately. The teacher refused and continued to remain in the building to obtain an item.
My boyfriend was the passenger of a vegicle that was pulled over, he didnt do any sudden movements and was told to step out the car because he fit a description, he then was searched and arrested for possession of a handgun, possession of bullets and marijuana. Is the case substantial or valid? Can... Read more »
All motions to suppress evidence are iffy things. They will need to show the ID information or it may be a no go for them. Problem with MTS is to fight them you normally need to reject a plea offer so it is all or nothing. Possession of a handgun is 2nd degree with presumed prison 5-10 years and it...Read more »
I believe it is a 3 point ticket so paying it may not be wise anyway. The ticket has a court date on it. If you are just going to pay you need to do it before that date. Otherwise you need to go to court. Missing court is contempt. I may be wrong but the $250 is for the contempt. Call the court to...Read more »
I bought a old cheap vehicle which was towed a day after... I have been told that I am not allowed to get the vehicle back and even not my belongings from the vehicle until I will pay 6 parking tickets and the cost of the wheel lock that was stolen from the wheel. I explained that those tickets... Read more »
My car was unregistered, and had no insurance because I was going to sell it, and it’s been parked ever since the registration expired. I’ve given back the plates and put on plates I had lying around my storage. Now they’ve towed it. Now, I’m concerned with these tickets .
The no insurance is serious but you did not drive it. They towed because of the registration. Section 3-4 also requires it to be "driven". So you may be able to duck or reduce all these tickets. The problem will be getting your car out. section 3-40.6 requires insurance. So it may pay to use an...Read more »
I don't understand why my fine went up. I spoke with the prosecutor before court, he offered me no points for a $400 fine. I declined and plead guilty. I also had a failure to prove insurance ticket which was dropped when I showed proof. Why would my fine go from $95 to $156? This was East... Read more »
The fine in the back of the ticket is if you send in the money without going to court. At court that menu of fines no longer apply. If you were going to plead to the charge and eat the points there was no reason to go in. Most people go in to contest the charge and get a downgrade plea offer.
You never were convicted of this behavior. More information is needed. What type of "law" application. Does the organization require full disclosure? I have never seen such s question before, they usually ask for convictions. The expungement order says you can answer that such charges never...Read more »
I was not aware of the move over law. However, I did use common sense to try changing lanes, but I was blocked. Again, common sense struck and I slowed down from 65 to 55 in a 65 mph zone. Was I supposed to go slower? When the driver the officers pulled over finished, he came into my lane without... Read more »
My belief is this is a 2 point ticket. Some opine it is 0. Can never get a straight answer. Anyway unless you have special circumstances like a CDL or you drive for Uber etc. you can negotiate this to O points on your own. You can use an attorney if you are more confortable or if you wish to...Read more »
My son has never been in trouble and brought a electric lighter to school and a kid said my son threatened him and said it was a taser. The school called the police and they put my son in handcuffs. Now they have charged him with 2nd degree robbery. Why robbery?
More information is needed. Robbery is attempting to obtain property from another (theft) by force, threats or coersion. My guess is the other student said he was threatened to give something up. Hard to say without more. At 12 if he does not have prior issues he should be released on conditions...Read more »
What law is applying? If you mean DWI the answer is yes they can charge you since that standard is probable cause. But they may not be able to convict you beyond a reasonable doubt if your defense is believed?
