I was regrettably doing 88mph in a 35mph school zone. Honest to God I didn't know I was in a school zone I thought the speed limit was 50 either way I was late for work and speeding. So the officer told me I was doing 88mph then comes to give me the ticket and I realized he marked it down and... Read more »
First by you requesting discovery, (radar, laser certification and logs, videos etc) you will also be giving a copy of this to the prosecutor which will then make his job much easier to convict you. Not that a lawyer wouldn't normally do this for you, but when you do it, it raises a red flag...Read more »

You can't still receive a ticket as you would be past the statute of limitations, but it sounds like you may already have had one. I would hire an attorney to research this and see if any tickets arose out of the situation to make sure you don't have a warrant for your arrest for not...Read more »
That's the same as the police officer motioning/telling you over his speaker to slow down. That doesn't mean that he can't give you a ticket later for speeding at that time. So yes you can still get a ticket for what happened.
You need to repost your question under the Puerto Rico section not NJ as you have to have a chance of getting the right answer as here you will only get NJ lawyers and most don't know Puerto Rican law.
It would depend on the statute where each one is written. Don't forget that statutes are written in different years and times so many words may mean something then and something different now, you have to look at the definition at the time the law was passed.
That would depend on a lot of information that is missing such as was their a property settlement agreement when they got divorced. Was she still named on the deed. Was she living in the property and this is just three of the many questions a lawyer would need to ask before giving you an answer....Read more »
Someone would need to be able to hear you if you were charged as their must have been a complainant. If not you may have a good defense. If charged speak with a good criminal lawyer. Most of us criminal lawyers offer a free in office consultation.
It's been 4 months that I had been assaulted in Newark, N.J. I called the Police on that day since the guy punched me on the head and also threw away my personal phone. Since then, a Detective contacted me via text message about the case. I provided the Detective the picture/plate of the car... Read more »
No set mileage is in the statute, but if you look at the cases its a reasonable distance/time. The problem is some people just aren't that aware of their surroundings and thus don't pull over right away even though the cop was behind them, and then they get the charge. if charged make...Read more »
My 16 yr old is being detained because he admitted to a criminal act but not everyone involved in the incident was questioned yet. Also, the weapon in the complaint is not what my son admitted too - and the complaint document was shown to us after he was detained.
The short answer is yes a juvenile can be detained for a criminal act he admitted to even if everyone involved was not questioned. That being said that does not mean that the police didn't do something wrong in the investigation and you should definitely hire a lawyer to determine this and...Read more »
You can always change lawyers however, your old lawyer will be entitled to the money he has earned already generally computed at the lawyers normal hourly rate. That being said a lot of lawyers are weary of taking a case at the last minute like this as it will take a lot of time for your new...Read more »
A lawyer would need to ask you several questions to properly answer this question starting with do you have an under or uninsured insurance to cover loss, does your contract speak to an accident and does it include recovery of attorneys fees etc. Although it may cost a few dollars to speak with a...Read more »
I suggest you setup a consultation with a lawyer. You have more than a simple question here and a lot will depend on who you are in the will. For example are you executor or just a beneficiary. As for tax liability that should be asked to a CPA
I was issued a summons in New Jersey @3 AM on my way home for touching the traffic fog line. The officer followed me for quiet a while b4 I did something that he could justify a traffic stop. After going back to the area of the stop the next day I noticed that the traffic lines were faded and in... Read more »
That is an issue that you can fight the ticket over but you would need to go to trial over it and you will need to take pictures/video of the area where you were stopped. Without a lawyer these cases are hard to win because you will have to prove that a reasonable person could not make out the...Read more »
The common sentence depends on the degree of the charge you had and the amount of drugs as distribution has different levels depending on the drug.
