If police break into a house with a Search Warrant, they are required to either leave a copy or give a copy to a person present. I am not aware of a requirement that they do so, *before* they come in and search. That could create security risks, and that is likely the reason. Normally they will,...Read more »

You are presumed innocent and cannot be found guilty unless you are proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. You are entitled to an attorney and...Read more »

Have both testified stating there were NO INJURIES and yet I was still found guilty of assault and the judge lied in his findings of facts saying the doctor witnessed injuries when she testified stating that there were NO injuries and I believe that is "fraud on the court" and voids... Read more »
There is "assault" and "battery." You could have an assault WITHOUT a battery, but the reverse doesn't apply. So even if there were no injuries, a person can commit an assault. Putting someone else in fear of their safety or possible injuries, or worse, when there is intent...Read more »
The use of the term lies implies that the judge intentionally said or wrote something that was untrue knowing that it was untrue. Making a finding that was inconsistent with the record presented in court would be error. But error is only significant if it is reversible error and you don’t...Read more »

Family members got guardianship? Woyld you not be aware of criminal proceedings and would you get a care taker without your permission or your say so to whom it may be. Could law keep threatening daily with warrants and family
This question is incredibly confusing. It's unclear what is being asked. Criminal charges and a guardianship are two entirely different things and are unrelated to each other.
