Do an internet search for age of consent in Ohio. I believe it is 16. On the other hand you must do as your parents say until you are 18, and perhaps he could be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Not enough facts here. To continue past the age of 18, for a completely disabled child, one has to move for it in the divorce court. You should be looking into social security disability benefits for this child.

Can\'t answer without enough facts to form an opinion. It depends upon the facts, you gave none. Your state might allow, and probably does allow excited utterances as an exception to the hearsay rule. Get a criminal defense attorney on your side.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
I do not understand this question. Is there a criminal case against someone? Is that you? This forum is for people who want to ask basic legal questions. Anyone who is charged with crime needs to get a criminal defense attorney on their side. Did you mean larceny? You need to give at least some basic facts about what has happened.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
So, go hire a criminal defense attorney on this matter. The attorney will investigate all the facts and circumstances, and will do the necessary research of case law to be able to give you an answer. It might be grounds for dismissal. There could be an obvious chain of custody problem. There could be obvious problems with proof depending upon the actual facts. You do not know all the facts yet, right? Just what you have heard. Do not talk with the police, just a criminal defense attorney who...

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
The answer to these questions can only be given by an attorney in VT who knows all the facts and circumstances. Is it possible? Perhaps. But it is also possible that you could be extradited back to VT, and that does not usually happen with misdemeanors, but it does with felonies. Assault can be a felony in FL, do you know whether you were charged with a felony or a misdemeanor? Contact a criminal defense attorney in VT who has decades of experience.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
Why is this under the criminal law forum. People frequently ask this question and the answer is usually yes in a criminal case context. You did not give the facts, just a question, probably about something that has already happened. The after the fact questions must be accompanied by sufficient facts for an attorney to form an opinion. Questions like this, as well as questions like \"what are my rights?\" are very difficult to even guess at an answer. One thing that comes to mind, after...

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
This is not a basic legal question, although you probably think that it is. A question which requires a lot of time to answer on the part of an attorney is not basic. What recourse? Get a criminal defense and probably an appellate attorney on your side immediately. The attorney will need a complete transcript of the trial just to be able to say whether you have an appeal.

Get an attorney for this? Conduct discovery process with the usual types of discovery matters, request the entire personel file of the security guard, interrogatories, perhaps requests for admissions if available in your state, depositions of key figures who have personal knowledge about the incident. Shoot, there is a heck of a lot of work in a lawsuit, any civil litigation. It takes years to get a case into a posture for trial. But by doing it yourself, you are probably going to be dealing...

Q: How do I sue for discrimination

Answered on Sep 2, 2015

Follow Question


Robert Jason De Groot's answer
Get an attorney. Do you think you can do a thing as complex as civil litigation for discrimination by yourself? If so, your are wrong in my opinion. The case would most likely get dismissed for failure to state a cause of action. There are certain pleading requirements for lawsuits. You could do an internet search with the same question and probably get many more results, and might even get some good ones, or attorneys who do this type of suit in your state.
