It is legal. When you break the law, you suffer the consequences where you broke the law. To transfer probation, both jurisdictions must agree and almost no one transfers misdemeanor probation.

Answered on Jan 19, 2018

no lawyer can answer this case without more info.

if/when he comes back he will have charges pending with a bench warrant for his arrest.

2 Answers | Asked in Criminal Law, Family Law and Federal Crimes for Illinois on
Answered on Jan 12, 2018

Can he be arrested and taken away during labor/birth? Yes. Is it likely to happen right at that time? No, although it will likely happen at some point. In the eyes of the law he committed statutory rape and is a sex offender if convicted.

1. Call the police/DA's office. 2. The mother-in law's heirs may be able to pursue a financial Elder Abuse claim against the financial advisor and his employer. 3. Depending on the type of financial adviser, there may be state/federal licensing agencies to whom a complaint can be made. Some of these may have a fund to compensate victims of theft.

Q: How long in jail do you get for a roach of marijuana and is now on probation ?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for Georgia on
Answered on Jan 10, 2018

Is your case in Alabama? If so, contact an Alabama attorney. If it is in Georgia, as I understand your question, you are on probation for a charge and were arrested for a new charge. If that is the case, you face the possibility of having your entire balance of probation revoked. Hire an attorney.

Q: I was 16 she was 18 and we had a daughter but I would say no to sex it’s been 7 years can I still press charges

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law, Federal Crimes and Criminal Law for New Jersey on
Answered on Jan 9, 2018

Thank you for your question. If you're asking whether you can charge her with statutory rape/sexual assault I think you're going to have a problem. First, even if you were 16 at the time, New Jersey sets the age of consent at 16 (the law requires, among other things, that the victim be at least 13 but less than 16 years old) Second, even though the statute is supposed to be gender neutral, it's poorly written to reflect this. It's also been 7 years since this happened and few people are likely...

You should hire an attorney to represent you. If you had another drug test that came back with a different result, then the court and DCS need to know. If you had custody of the children or want custody of the children, then you really need a lawyer to help you.

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for Texas on

A full answer cannot be given because you did not supply enough essential facts. Generally though, yes, you can expect he will go to jail. He is looking to have his DWI probation revoked for violating the terms and conditions of his probation with the dirty UA and the new possession case. He is entitled to a bond on the motion to revoke probation and the new case. If he can make bond he can be out before his case is finally adjudicated.

Q: Is there a law against a group of individuals firing their weapons behind a shopping center where they sell ammunition?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law, Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for Texas on
Answered on Jan 3, 2018

Simple answer? Yes. You can be charged with illegal discharge of a firearm, or unlawfully discharging a firearm in a city limits as Houston has a city ordinance against such conduct, or even deadly conduct. The deadly conduct can even be charged as a felony given the circumstances of the weapon discharge. So, put the gun away and discharge it only on a gun range, while hunting or defending yourself from someone discharging their weapon at you. Good luck.
