I got the ticket in Missouri but while in his vehicle when he gave me the ticket on camera he never asked me to sign it on any of the signature spots is the ticket valid he didn't sign the printed out ticket anywhere either
answered on Oct 1, 2022
Yes, the ticket is valid. It makes no difference if the police officer didn't sign the ticket or if you didn't sign the ticket. After the police officer issues a ticket to a driver, the prosecutor has to approve the ticket, and then it goes to the court clerk to be filed on Casenet.... Read more »

Look outside your local area to lawyers licensed to practice in Missouri federal courts who practice in the area of civil rights.
Increasing how much you are willing to pay for a lawyer’s services makes it more likely you will be able to find a lawyer who is willing to work for you.
Can you legally make me hire from one group and not from all others? If so, please explain to me how this is possible?

The US Constitution places limits on government action, not on the conduct of private parties or organizations, such as the NFL. This is a common misconception among laypersons.

Can an Article I judge deprive the US Court of Appeals of subject matter jurisdiction ?

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...

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 »

Will the warrant be dropped when going before a judge
answered on Nov 19, 2020
Yes. In fact it what normally happens so a hold is created so that the accused is not released from the holding facility upon resolution of that case.
answered on Nov 9, 2020
Of course you can be charged. Based on the post, I suspect that has happened. Whether someone ultimately gets convicted is another issue. Time to hire a criminal defense attorney.
They blamed Covid, but there was no notification and I missed work to be at court.

Had I missed... Read more »
answered on Oct 16, 2020
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 »

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.

answered on Aug 11, 2020
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 »

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.
