The short answer is yes, people can press false charges. The big thing to remember, though, is whether those charges will end up sticking and whether the prosecution can prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.

It really depends on a few things; however, if this if your first charge, then there is a greater likelihood of no jail time.

More than likely, this would be something that is covered by worker's compensation. Your best bet is going to be to get with a workers comp lawyer to go over the details of what happened, as well as to discuss the nature of your injuries.

If it's a misdemeanor charge, there is a good chance that a lawyer could work it out with a prosecutor to where trial is avoided and the charge does not go on your record. That being said, if you had nothing to do with the underlying crime, then you should seriously consider taking it to trial.

A Mississippi attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for three weeks. It could depend on the terms of the contract of sale and communications that ensued afterwards. Good luck

Unfortunately, with the way that Mississippi law works, the time frame to file a lawsuit against the county has likely long-since expired. Typically, to sue a county in state court, you only have one year from the date that the conduct occurred.

Generally, yes. In this case, the mall is considered private property, and the lengthy stay of the car may warrant its removal from the premises.
