He needs a lawyer. He’s facing not only these new charges, but a violation of probation on the assault case. Both can lead to jail. Firearm cases are treated seriously. But what can or will happen to him cannot be predicted with so little information. Hire an experienced criminal defense attorney... Read more »

There is no special instruction for that, and the general instructions on intent are sufficient. What you are arguing is based on the evidence which I assume was presented at trial and was therefore argued on your behalf by your lawyer as a basis to raise a reasonable doubt as to your ability to...

Can the all the sales proceeds be just allocated to the LlC and just zero proceeds to the Individuals so no 1099 will be issued ?
answered on May 8, 2023
The individual owners should have deeded their interest to the LLC before the sale, if they wanted the proceeds all deemed income to the LLC. While the individual owners may be able to direct payment to the LLC, or deposit their checks into the LLC bank account, I believe at this point that will... Read more »
My 13 and 16 year old boys accidentally shot their bb guns into the siding of the neighbor behind our house. We are willing to replace the dented siding but the owner is saying that we need to replace his entire siding because the new siding won't match the old siding. I have called for an... Read more »
answered on May 7, 2023
These types of unreasonable demands based on aesthetics often become impossible when the one party wants a whole replacement with brand new siding for their entire house based on one unmatched panel. They’re not entitled to that. Call your homeowners insurance company. It is very possible your... Read more »

In order to enforce an out-of-state judgment or order in Maryland (or in any other state) you need to first obtain an “exemplified” or “triple seal” copy of the order/judgment from the state that issued it. This is different from a regular certified copy. It requires three signatures... Read more »

Seems a bit odd. Is there an evidence based reason for doing so? Did a witness or security camera footage identify the offender in part by their footwear or feet? Was this a DUI where you failed to perform field sobriety tests and there’s a potential issue that the type of footwear interfered... Read more »

You described a hypothetical future event that describes a forced or unauthorized entry into your home and your imagined reaction to that imaginary future event.

answered on May 4, 2023
If the District Court judge did not set an appeal bond then he can get out upon paying the appeal bond simultaneously with noting the appeal and paying the appeal fee. You can’t note the appeal for him though. Either he does it or his lawyer has to do it. If there’s no appeal bond set he can... Read more »

The facts may later prove insufficient, or false. The State’s Attorney may review the charges and decide not to proceed, but generally you will... Read more »

I gave away all my rights so the mother has full sole custody. In the paperwork she chose to not put me on child support at the time. If she ever wanted to could she put me on child support even though I’m not responsible for the child at all?
answered on Apr 5, 2023
Yes. Both parents ALWAYS remain legally responsble to support their minor children. That legal obligation cannot be waived and "contracted" away, except through legal adoption (where another person adopts your child and you relinquish your parental rights). Absent a legal adoption, if... Read more »

Unless you have a formal written lease and live in a separate unit with its own entrance in the property, you will not likely be treated as anything other than a member of the owner’s extended family. Regardless, you have a lot more than 90 days if the house has not yet been sold at a foreclosure... Read more »

I agree with Mr. Miller’s answer, but would add that the age of the child may play a factor in what may have been a more appropriate choice. As far as personal liability for the child’s parents making a claim for damages, there is likely no case there. As far as a negative employment... Read more »
to not wanting to be liable if something were to happen. However, they really want the mirror to be hung. How can i go about this so that i am not liable?
answered on Mar 31, 2023
If you own the mirror, or because it was abandoned by the prior tenant you may claim ownership, then it's yours to do as you please: retrieve and dispose of it, sell it, or give it away. If you give it to your new tenant, then you should make clear you are giving ownership of it to them, and... Read more »

The decedent died on 3/08/2022. The Notice to Creditors was published in March 2022 just after the decedent passed. The estate closed on 12/19/2022. I am personal representative and am still getting bills for medical services provided back in May 2021 thru January 2022. Am I obligated to pay them?
answered on Mar 29, 2023
If these bills are Medicare or Medicaid-related, and are requesting reimbursements for benefits paid through those programs, then maybe. Otherwise, creditors have an outer deadline of 6 months from the date of death to file a formal claim in the estate (not simply mail bills--the claim if a formal... Read more »

The children of the living sibling of the decedent do not have standing to contest the will because they would not receive any part of the estate even if they prevailed--only their mother would if the will were set aside.
