A Missouri attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Monkey's fists are illegal in some states, and only a Missouri criminal attorney would be in a position to advise on the law in Missouri. You are correct in what you describe - although the knot was commonly...Read more »
The judge can advise you that proceeding without an attorney may not be the best when faced with a felony charge. In order for you to proceed pro se, the judge has to make sure that you fully understand certain things prior to actually representing yourself and that you have the capacity to proceed...Read more »
In general it is tough to find pro bono representation because you are asking a stranger to donate thousands of dollars of his or her time to your case. Therefore, you’ll need to be more specific if you want to catch someone’s attention.
In Section 1983 civil rights cases, prevailing...Read more »
They blamed Covid, but there was no notification and I missed work to be at court. I disagree with the ticket and now will need to take more time off whenever the ticket is entered and they set a new date. Am I guaranteed a speedy trial and if so, can I get this ticket dismissed. Had I missed... Read more »
No, you can't get your ticket dismissed based on what you have stated. If you had missed the court date, the court would have mailed a letter to you to remind you that you missed your court date and would have re-set your court date on a future date. If the Prosecutor hasn't filed the...Read more »
Even a valid medical marijuana card does have some limitations with regard to amount. Such as:
"Up to four ounces may be purchased per 30 days. The Department of Health may set limits on the amount of marijuana possessed, “provided that the limit is not less than a 60 days supply.”...Read more »
I'm being told that in Missouri, you have to REQUEST a speedy trial? From what I'm aware of, the (6th Amendment) Right to a Speedy Trial, is active by default and only changes if you formally waive your right to the speedy trial. This is for a criminal case with a felony charge if that... Read more »
You are right in your assertion that you have a 6th Amendment right to a speedy trial, however there are 2 different concepts of a speedy trial. Procedurally, you do in fact have to request a speedy trial and the court should set a trial date as soon as it is reasonably possible. Once you relay to...Read more »
And also has been doing legal drug activity along with letting another occupant living in the unit (which is not on the lease and a pet) I have tried to verbally talk to this tenant to only be disrespected and threatened...I have noted the authorities and have documentation on the noise...

It is unclear from your description whether you have provided written notice of these issues. You should document the problems with your neighbor and send them in writing to both the manager and the landlord/owner. Also, review your lease and see if there is a clause prohibiting disturbing your...Read more »
Bad idea on many grounds. First, I doubt the match would be commissioned through the state. Second, you would incur liability risks. Third, it might be unlawful under your city's laws. Fourth, it might violate your HOA declaration or rules and regulations, if applicable.
And the information they supply online, my son's name is the same as mine but a "II" after his name they got his history on mine ,I can't get a job cause of case.net (employers use it as a criminal search) and I'm constantly being put n jail for his warrants cause they... Read more »
As you know, there's no easy answer to your situation. You haven't asked a specific question, however. Casenet is supposed to accurately reflect the names of the parties as they are identified when the case is filed. I'm not sure what you specifically want done, and by whom. I...Read more »
It's probably unorthodox to ask bc I'm not seeking legal advice but I have a paper due this week and our History teacher wants us to write our meaning of Thanksgiving Day so I dug into our founding fathers, read the constitution, and saw that (My question in forum) Ive always wanted to...

I recently got into skateboarding for a fun past time. I would never consider doing tricks on my board anywhere else other than skate parks but have given thought to riding a longboard for a method of transportation. Is it legal to ride a long board on sidewalks? Where can I ride it legally? I... Read more »
If you are not able to find laws in your ordinary searches under civil, traffic, recreational, and other laws, you could check with your elected officials on the city council, assembly, and other local, city, and state government bodies. One of the problems with skateboarding is that many places...Read more »
Just to start before I get a lawyer I want to represent myself and get treated as an attorney, which I will and act upon. I want to obtain records and video from a hospital, a state counseling organization, and a state probation and parole center, this includes all records and vvideo I am involved... Read more »
You have the right to represent yourself, but unless you comply with the local court rules, rules of civil procedure, and relevant statutes, you will quickly find the experience to be a frustrating one. It might cost you more in the long run not to have hired a good attorney at the outset.
This case would go to the Supreme Court. It is newsworthy. Civil rights violations. Statues ignored. Policies and procedures not followed. False documents presented to the court. This needs to be brought to the media's attention. Background in Family Law would be a plus. It is a very long... Read more »
001-3912 was dismissed by nolle prosequi. Could the form I'd signed in Case 001-3912 constitute compliance with Section 600.051 for my subsequent Case 011-2189 and relieve the trial court from obtaining a new form pertinent to the new case?
