That’s a slogan used...Read more »
Do not cancel the internet or stop paying for anything (phones, cars, utilities, rent) you were paying for before you got charged. It will be a violation of the no contact, your bond, and potentially a new charge.
Jeopardy to later be charged with F-5 internal possession as a whole new case filed against me for that same urine screen which was used as evidence to charge me with D.U.I? I feel that is being tried for the same case twice.
This would be an interesting one to argue. The standard for double jeopardy is whether each offense requires proof of an element which the other does not. For the DUI that’s easy. DUI requires proof that you operated a motor vehicle. Drug possession certainly does not. Similarly, normal drug...Read more »

What was the understanding when she gave you the dog? If you were just supposed to look after the dog on a temporary basis, then it’s still hers even if that time was extended and you took on the dog’s expenses. If she gave the dog to you as a gift, then it’s yours.
my ticket came from cleveland ohio and i live over two hours from there and have not been there in years. Plus the vehicle in the picture is a silver van and i drive a white truck. I believe the confusion came from the license plate number being almost identical to mine. what should i do?
The mailing includes instructions for disputing the ticket. Unfortunately, it may not be worth it since those are usually a $100 fine and no points and you may be required to attend a hearing to dispute it.
A few months ago, my husband and I had an altercation that got a little loud and some slaps were thrown.
