You leaving out some key information. Like, for example, who the house belongs to? Was there any reason to stop the vehicle in question? At the end of the day, you need to get an attorney to look at the situation. It sounds fishy, but there's information missing.

The realtor has no legal rights and cannot require you to do anything. You don't even have to talk to him if you don't want to. You certainly don't have to leave the key in the box. Ohio law requires a landlord to give reasonable (24 hour) notice of having someone come in for an...Read more »

Masks have become very popular recently. Many states require their use in all public buildings. Many have questioned whether requiring a person to wear a mask is Constitutional. I think that is asking the question precisely BACKWARDS. I think "Does a person have a right to conceal their... Read more »
That's a good question. Before the pandemic, concealment was a greater concern than public safety. But priorities have shifted, where the concern is more about the protecting the health of the public than of the risk of a robber concealing their identity. Constitutionally, laws can be subject...Read more »

It could cause problems for you and for him if you leave before 18. Hang on for 30 more days. But consider that if you leave now or when 18, you might no longer have any health insurance, car insurance, or other support from your family.

Jeopardy to later be charged with F-5 internal possession as a whole new case filed against me for that same urine screen which was used as evidence to charge me with D.U.I? I feel that is being tried for the same case twice.

The police can question a child without his or her parent(s) present, yes. But a child has the same rights as anyone not to talk to the police if he or she does not want to. Why do they want to talk to a child that is neither a suspect nor a witness?
