There are 5 ways to commit criminal trespass and the Federal Law does not match up with the State's terminology. Then there is what the policy of the organization is....Read more »
Could you be a bit more clear with your question? There are multiple kinds fo background checks, private as well as public, and they can have a wide variety of scopes. Some dive really deep using a lot of power, some are very cursory.
It was my moms car and I know there has never been any marijuana in the vehicle. Along with that they made me and my girlfriend sit in their car after I said I do not want . They also never asked me if they could search the vehicle and they also open the trunk without permission. They also never... Read more »
Violations of your 4th amendment protections against search and seizure are what you are referring too, and you need to fight that in court when you reach the motions stage.

I was sentenced under the first offenders act a few years ago and was more recently arrested for maximum limits + reckless driving (first offense). Is it likely I could have my probation and First Offenders revoked?
I need advice on a rather unfortunate situation that I got into recently. I had too much to drink prior to visiting six flags. Upon arrival, they asked that a ticket be presented. Though I have a season pass (so I could basically get in at anytime), I did not produce a ticket and a... Read more »
