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 »
Pro Se, 2 court dates already, did not plead, no contract signed, talk to DA, told me if I wanted to transfer to "Civil Court" (Jurisdiction..??).. Is discovery motion not allowed on a speeding ticket (radar) in TN...??
Not sure of your question, but it appears you do not know what you are doing. If a speeding ticket, then it is a criminal case.... Appeal De Novo is to Circuit Criminal Court, but a jury is not an option. Discovery is possible but the Court will not actively force the State to comply. A Bond...Read more »
It is not an illegal interview and happens alot. You were not required to say anything. Sometimes the absence of, or waiver of, Miranda Warnings will suppress any testimonial evidence acquired by the LEO's.
I work in a gun store and carry on private land separate from where I reside. I am wanting to know if I can keep a handgun in my vehicle for protection at work and at any time I must go to our farm on the private land during these times under the Castle Law or any other law.
As a general rule no. If you are military, you might get a HCP. Or you might carry it in the locked trunk unloaded to a firearm instruction class (but I do not advise this). Unfortunately you are two years too young to carry a handgun, so do not do it. A criminal charge will mess you up so...Read more »
I am unaware of which specific Constitutional right you are referring to. Assuming you mean to invoke the 4th Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures. I am unaware of any precedent that states citizens are not required to produce identification when requested to do so. 4th...Read more »
They want to verify that my misdemeanor charge isn't domestic assault or battery but it clearly States on the disposition that it isn't are they allowed because I feel like my rights for fire arms are being suppressed or neglected It's been more than the 60 days they say it takes I... Read more »
If necessary you will need to file an Action in General Sessions against the State. It is basically a Declaratory Judgment Action pursuant to Statute, and I believe you will need a competent attorney. This will need to be filed very soon.
There was a police call made by someone where we were and It was a false report because of underlying family issues so when the police came they grabbed my boy friend and beat on him they also took my weapon because I say it on the ground just for my safety when they arrived my weapon is in my name...

First make a written demand to the Chief of Police or the Sheriff to return your weapon. Then you need to file suit for Conversion against the City/County and the Officer that took the firearm with a SOL of 3 years. All this costs money and time, and many firearms are not worth the trouble. There...Read more »
