Hire a competent attorney to: Motion to Set Aside Guilty Plea; or Notice of Appeal dealing with the Sentence only. Time may be too late now, so call for a lawyer today. Later a Post-Conviction Petition to set aside everything for Ineffective Assistance of Counsel can be filed (within 1...View More

I am not aware of any disability from running a TN non-profit entity. If you already formed it, then apparently the TN Secretary of State has no problem. Since it is from another State, noone here may know about it at this time, and who would want to remove you anyway? You might look into...View More
My husband and I own a boat that we decided to sell. We put it on a lot for a dealership to sell for us. The deal was that the boat would not leave the lot until paid for. We also agree that the dealerships would take $500 for selling it. We got a call from the dealership about 12 days ago saying... View More

It depends on the facts of the case, your criminal history and the DA's and victims' positions on jail time. Generally, in the beginning of the pandemic, courts were leaning away from jail sentences and were letting a lot of people out of jail on already-imposed sentences. Now, though,...View More
We think we have a great case for an appeal (the judge himself said to appeal his own sentence at least 5 times during sentencing) so we really want him to stay out while appealing. My husband was sentenced to 2 years in Federal Camp (all he was convicted of was illegal remuneration and was... View More
First I am not a Tennessee lawyer. That being said, generally a party (civil or criminal) has 30 days to note an appeal, with the bond accompanying that. That's 30 days after sentencing date, whether your lawyer notes the appeal or you do. But I think that an appeal in a criminal case does not...View More
Without knowing anything about the Case, I recommend hiring a competent attorney now. Obviously he needs a Bond Set, and probably needs to prepare for a Preliminary Hearing or Pre-Trial Motions. You should be able get representation with payments or asset transfer. It does not have to be a local...View More
Need more info to answer the question. What kind of case? There are jurisdiction laws in every county. Depending on the type of case, there's subject matter jurisdiction, personal jurisdiction, and venue. Facts are important.
You need an attorney. But the case will likely be tried before a jury as is the defendant's right unless waived. Without knowing the actual charge, the facts of the case, and all other factors that go into a defense, no one on a forum will be able to provide you with an answer as to how you...View More
Someone was arrested for criminal trespassing in two different counties, one bond was $2500 in one county & the other bond was $5000 in the other county, I'm trying to find out the price range for this charge
Maybe General Sessions Judges and Magistrates talk among themselves, but you are not going to find an official guideline to Bond amounts. Both of those are higher bonds than most, so apparently the Defendant is viewed as a major burglar. His lawyer might move to lower the amounts in each County,...View More
Not exactly sure what your question is about, but a Civil Fraud case can certainly be made, and most likely also a Criminal Theft charge also. Illegal Income is still income that must be reported by the Recipient, and can be a legitimate business expense for the Defrauded Party. The 1099 could...View More
My mother paid a mortgage co for title insurance in 2007. The mortgage company did not do the title search until after my mother's death 8 years later, thus finding out the land wasn't signed off by my uncle back in 5/02, leaving him owning a security interest in the land. The title... View More
You have not provided all of the necessary data, but I can tell you this much. It appears that your uncle has a superior or first deed of trust on the property.. It may include fixtures also, and if the mobile home does not have wheels, it might be arguably affixed to the land and part of the...View More
