You are not the first person to face this problem, and you will not be the last. However, assuming that the facts are as you say, a good, aggressive plaintiff's lawyer stands a good chance of filing suit and winning and getting you meaningful relief and damages. Naturally, these kinds of...Read more »
The answer depends on the reason the officers state was the reason they pulled you over. IF, and that's a big IF, the officers had no legitimate reason for the stop AND IF they admit that, the marijuana they seized should not be admitted into evidence against you.

Get to Court -- today -- and file a petition for paternity. Along with that file an instanter ordering the...Read more »

I don't want to get her pregnant because of religious reasons. Is there any way possible we can get married without consent. I... Read more »
No. She is a minor and so are you. You can't get married without your parents consent and she can't get married at all. If you are having sex with her and she is under 16 and if you are more than 24 months older than she is you can be exposed to criminal prosecution for having sex with...Read more »
A 16 year old is still a minor, just because she has a baby does not mean that she is emancipated. If she is a child who is in need of supervision -- that is if her parents can't seem to handle her -- the law allows the parents to call on the State of Alabama (DHR) to assist in what's...Read more »
I was arrested on a felony charge and spent 7 hours in a county jail before my release. To my knowledge i have to see judge before being released. When I asked why was they releasing me they claimed to be an error in the system
The question is, were you charged with anything? Is there still a pending charge? If you were arrested, and the arresting authority then released you and did not charge you because they confused you with someone else, you will generally have to prove that the officer who arrested you acted...Read more »

Hello, is my private school allowed to print off my text messages without my permission? They never took my phone away but said they have a script of my message that they got from somewhere. I never gave them permission and I never signed anything throughout the year that allows them to do that. Is... Read more »
Don't see how they could have done that. Now they may have gotten your "message" from another person--the other person is free to print off anything you email or text them, give it or forward it to whoever they wish. Did they say they have all of your texts to anyone? I doubt it....Read more »
