I was selling my birds. A lady contacted me to purchase them, and proved she would not care for them right. I told her no, and kept looking. A guy contacted me and told me he would take the birds to his home in Wisconsin, where just he lives, and they would be his birds. 2 months later the woman... Read more »

I live in MN and my 39 year old son who doesn't live with me took my truck and ended up hitting a parked car (very little damage) leaving the scene, then out running the cops. Now they are telling me they can keep my truck, is this true? I knew nothing about it Thanks So Much... Read more »
Would having having that disorder help me in court at all since it's so impulsive I feel like I don't have control over it even though I'm going to therapy to try I'm still breaking it Non-Stop and it's going to take time to get over that urge me and always keep on adding up these things
Unfortunately a mental health diagnosis is not a defense to prima facie criminal liability under the law. And for those who get a "not guilty by means of mental illness" disposition on their criminal record, will get reviewed in civil commitment court for possible civil commitment. But...Read more »
It takes sometime for an individual to be booked and for that information to appear online. I would assume that your friend is in the county jail where the alleged murder occurred. He or she will be held for a court date and then conditions of release such as bail will be set.
Family members got guardianship? Woyld you not be aware of criminal proceedings and would you get a care taker without your permission or your say so to whom it may be. Could law keep threatening daily with warrants and family
This question is incredibly confusing. It's unclear what is being asked. Criminal charges and a guardianship are two entirely different things and are unrelated to each other. A warrant could certainly be issued if you missed a court hearing on a criminal matter, but that has nothing to do...Read more »
If I am convicted in CA state court, then after I've been sentenced to 4 yrs in prison, but before I've began to serve this sentence the judge lets me out on bond pending appeal. While out on bond pending appeal I'm arrested for a federal offense, convicted and sentenced for said... Read more »
This is a question best asked and answered in a California criminal law forum. But concurrent vs. consecutive is usually determined by the second court that sentences you. The bigger issue that you will run into is how California determines credit. For example, if this happened in Minnesota with...Read more »
You ask this question in a Minnesota forum. Minnesota does not utilize the death penalty so I'm not sure if you are asking this question or nationally or otherwise. The NGRI (not guilty by reason of insanity) defense standards vary state to state. Minnesota uses the M'Naghten standard.
I was arrested for suspicion of DWI after being pulled over for a third brakelite being out. Can the police use incriminating evidence found only after the search incident to arrest? I would think they would had to have the search warrant prior to arresting me or at the very least the probable... Read more »
Of course they can. There is no obligation that law enforcement ignore evidence developed before the search incident to arrest. The probable cause basis for the arrest can differ from the probable cause to support a warrant application to get a search warrant for a blood draw. I am assuming that...Read more »
A Pardon is no admission of guilt. The person pardoned is not making a statement. The President (or Governor, state pardons board) is making the statement with a Pardon. However, most pardons happen after a conviction, which would either result from a guilty plea (admission of guilt) or a...Read more »
I want to pursue a career in healthcare, but that misdemeanor theft from 2015 is holding me back. I gotta get it expunged. But I also have a misdemeanor driving without my seatbelt less than two years ago. It'll be two years ago in June. But I don't think the seatbelt ticket will hinder... Read more »
You need to pursue an expungement. There are no guarantees that it will be granted, but you don’t have much to lose. The alternative is waiting til June which doesn’t make sense, particularly if it might be granted now.
