Amanda Bowden Houser's answer This is the first amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. There is nothing in there that gives you the right to beg for money (panhandling). Wanna hold a sign somewhere, go hold a sign somewhere - wanna beg for money especially aggressively and you...
Juan Ooink's answer This is something for you to discuss with your attorney. Your attorney will have all of the needed information in order to answer this question. If you have not hired an attorney yet, you should do so right away. The sooner you hire an attorney the sooner that attorney can start working on the case. That attorney will move to preserve any video available, but that needs to happen right away, so do not hesitate, hire an attorney now.
Charles M. Baron's answer The only time you can defend an eviction action WITHOUT posting the rent amount to the court registry is when you are arguing (in writing) that the rent has already been paid in full (and you can prove it). That's in Fla. Statutes Section 83.60(2). Your description does not indicate whether that was your defense or not, so it's hard to tell from your description whether the Court took proper action. Regarding the default that was entered, you might be able to cure the situation by paying to...
Dale S. Gribow's answer Penal Code 261 defines the crime of "rape" as nonconsensual sexual intercourse accomplished by means of: threats, force, or fraud, or. with a victim who is unconscious or incapable of consenting.
More info needed.
my best advice is to set up a consultation with a lawyer in your city that handles these types of cases. Most criminal lawyers will not charge for a consult.
Even someone convicted of child molestation may continue to ply their trade or work in their profession if the person has paid the penalty for their conviction, so long as the public is not in any danger.
Your question raises a whole host of constitutional issues for both the alleged perpetrator and any victims. Unfortunately, for me, it is not the kind of question that yields a simple...
Arthur Calderon's answer Unfortunately, no, they do not have to put the exact weight of drugs into the indictment; however, that may be something that a criminal defense attorney can attack once they receive discovery from the State.
Kiele Linroth Pace's answer If you have been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence then it is a violation of federal law for you to possess firearms or ammunition. US Code Title 18 Section 922(g)(9)
It is also a federal crime for a person to sell you a firearm (or even gift it to you) if they have reason to believe you have been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. US Code Title 18 Section 922(d)(9)
This law was passed in 1996 and its Constitutionality has...
Zachary Alan Waksman's answer It depends on how your husband's friend's name is "on the house". I am assuming that there is both a deed and a mortgage on the house. There is no "one size fits all" for documents related to ownership and loans related to real property such as a house. Deeds and mortgages have different procedures for changing the identities of the responsible parties.
An attorney will be able to help you accomplish your goals.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer Here's something to ponder. In Missouri, if you owe someone 15 bucks, the person doesn't need to accept payment via a bag of nickels.

The silver coins of the United States are hereby declared a legal tender, at their par value, fixed by the laws of the United States, and shall be receivable in payment of all debts, public or private, hereafter contracted in the state of Missouri; provided, however, that no person shall have the right to pay, upon any one debt, dimes and half...
