Hello-

If you can't afford a lawyer, your best bet may be to ask the court to appoint you an attorney. Typically the court will want you to fill out some paperwork swearing that you are indigent (have no money). Very few attorneys advertise themselves as "pro bono" and I...

Q: Do I have the ability to remove something on my record if it was just an arrest, and I wasn't convicted?

It's been years since this happened, but about 4 years ago I applied at HEB and was declined because of my "assault charge", is what they said. I know this has to be inaccurate because I was never charged, so I am curious what they saw on my background check?

The short answer is YES. I would not say that unless it were true. If the cop ID ed you, and there was an allegation by your sister, the cop had a job to do to at least talk to you. Detaining you was lawful for a very short period of time to inquire. The worst part is you do not know exactly what... Read more »

Maybe. Maybe not. It depends on the context for the threat and the INTENT of the person making the threat rather than the feelings of the person who received the threat. For example, if the person's purpose was to motivate the 911 operator to send officers to a fake emergency it would be a... Read more »
