Also, there was nothing in Plain view, and there were no exigent circumstances.

It really depends on the circumstances. Typically, law enforcement can enter one's property without a warrant if, like you said, there were exigent circumstances or in pursuit of someone who the officer was notified was engaged in wrongdoing.

From the looks of it, you have a civil suit against the contractor under several theories, with the obvious one being breach of contract. The main thing that you need to worry about is the statute of limitations, because, depending on some of the details, that statute could run (meaning that you... Read more »

It always depends on the situation; however, the first question is whether that officer put charges on you and for what. This is important because if there is a civil lawsuit, it will likely hinge on what happens with the criminal case. Regardless, it is in your best interest to reach out to... Read more »

This was an existing fence in a portion of my backyard when I purchased my home in 2003. It fell down during Katrina and my neighbors added 2x4 support boards to the existing frame and hung it back up. It’s an eyesore and it’s rotten and falling down. I have written them and tried to discuss... Read more »

The fence belongs to (i.e., is owned by) whoever's property it is on. There may be a zoning/building ordinance in your city/county that requires that the "smooth" side of the fence be on one side or the other, you would need to check that with your local planning and/or building... Read more »

A Mississippi attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could be fact-specific in terms of security measures. There is no universal "yes" or "no" answer. Good luck
answered on Sep 23, 2021
Yes. If you did not give permission to the owner to allow them to park the vehicle on property that you own.
answered on Jul 16, 2021
Yes, they can, and it happens quite a lot more often that people realize. Usually, whenever a witness does something like that, they are putting their credibility at risk.

You can; those services are not generally on an "opt out" basis. And if there are ordinances forbidding burning garbage, you could incur fines or penalties with that. Given the current health crisis, other forms of penalties or charges could also materialize. You don't want to do... Read more »

First time offense. Legally own the firearm. Also how do I keep the offense off of my record. All of this occurred in Mississippi.
answered on Dec 16, 2019
You need to reach out to an attorney sooner, rather than later. The first thing that I wonder is whether you have already been convicted. Regardless, a lawyer may be able to help, but it is going to depend on the actual charge and current status of the case.
