Domestic Assault is worse than some Felonies, and you should have known that 25 years ago prior to pleading. I assume that conviction is on your NCIC. You may wish to examine the legal weapons you can possess. There are muzzleloaders that can kill an elephant.
The leasing office did not call them. They still have the moving truck and will not release it. The police was called but due to this being a private company, there is nothing further they can do. Any suggestions?
My sister Maureen was pulled over in Franklin, TN because her tabs were expired by 14 days. Maureen knows her rights very well and she calmly and politely stated her rights to the police officer. This upset him and he entered her vehicle, physically removed her from her car, handcuffed her and took... Read more »
Maureen is charged with a serious Felony. She needs to hire a competent attorney now. It appears that she knows nothing about her rights and now the DA is after her. More than likely her suit lacked any merit, and definitely was not a counterclaim. This could get much worse and has been made...Read more »

They ACQUIESCED so I recorded the judgement. Over 1 year passed, NOW they say I am guilty of: 39-16-510. Retaliation for past... Read more »
There is no counterclaim to a criminal charge. If the criminal charge was dismissed, you might have had a civil rights action for an illegal arrest. But from the facts given, it does not look like that was the case. You will need to hire an attorney.
I was not on parole/probation; I received my rights back in June of 2020; I’m being charged with a class b felony or a c right now; I’m hoping it can be mended down to a class e which carries 1-6 yrs @30%.

The Police quickly caught a burglar that tried to break into my apartment. The Officer said that burglar was homeless and likely had schizophrenia. He wouldn’t arrest, didn’t want to fill out a Police report and only wanted to take him across town and drop him off.
You can try to contact a Magistrate yourself by going through the General Sessions Court Clerk, but you probably do not have sufficient information. You can also complain to the Knox County District Attorney General, who might arrange for you and the LEO to swear out a Warrant. Hopefully you at...Read more »
If no charge was made by the LEO's, and no Forfeiture Warrant was issued, then it is an unlawful taking. But did Dad own the vehicle? I suspect more occurred here than what facts are stated. Driving on Revoked TNDL may be a charge in the making, which can take 1 year to initiate. The owner...Read more »
Yes...You are on Probation so you have to abide by the Probation terms. Any violation can mean you could be incarcerated for the remainder of the Sentence. There should be some kind of Probation Order in your file at Court. Read it.
He can if you allow him in. My recommendation is to ask what he wants, and then not say anything except you cannot come in without a Search Warrant. If he has an Arrest Warrant or Capias for you, then he will arrest you.
Not sure of your "Court" fraud, but a Governmental Tort Liability Action is 1 year from injury. Probably any other applicable cause of action will also be 1 year, except some property torts are 3 years.
That would be "Pro Se". But most of the time you should not represent yourself. I recommend calling around for competent attorneys who might be creative in getting compensated. You might call around in other Counties in your District and ask for possible referrals.
Apparently it did finally show up in Court for the Judge to peruse. Search Warrants do have to be returned with the execution annotated thereon, but Arrest Warrants can be used in a variety of ways. It can easily be dismissed, yet you can still get Indicted at Criminal Court. You may wish to...Read more »
I live in Tennessee and I pled guilty to a misdemeanor Domestic Assault about five years ago. I was forced to sign a piece of paper stating that I must surrender all of my firearms and that I would never be able to own a firearm again. My question is this: I am getting married soon and my fiance... Read more »
Your future Wife does not lose her rights by marrying you. You should not touch the firearms nor ammunition, and it would be better for her to have a safe for most of it. I suspect she carries one or more firearms. I am sorry that you got talked into pleading to a crime worse than many...Read more »
