if your son was under age, technically your brother committed an assault. You need to take the youth to a dermatologist for starters. You can also sue him but if he doesn't own much that may not get you anywhere.
Bar said something along the lines of that people who don’t “support and respect” the cops “might find themselves without the police protection they need.” This was all framed in a context of political decent.
For our attorney general to say that feels like a threat especially... Read more »
What the Attorney General said was both inappropriate and highly improper, in my opinion. What you can do is make your voice heard in the ballot box next November at the next presidential election by choosing a candidate who will not keep this particular attorney general in his position. The only...Read more »
I was eligible and filed the expungement papers with the courts sent them to the prosecutors and state police dept. Court date is coming up and was wondering if it’s something I can do on my own like go before the judge or should I hire a lawyer to show up? It’s 1felony/Felonious Assault
It never hurts to at least talk with a local attorney who might be able to give you guidance as to what your particular judge expects and prepare you for the hearing. Expungements are discretionary, meaning that just because you qualify doesn't mean that the judge has to grant it. And it will...Read more »
Unlawful carry of a pistol carries up to 1 year. Based on your question i am unsure of the other charge that you are talking about. If you are talking about possession of a weapon by a person convicted of a crime of violence under state law that charge carries up to 5 years.
It varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. First, I would read your probation agreement, and see what it says. Ultimately it is up to the judge. Courts treat Violation of Probation seriously, so I would definitely retain a local criminal defense attorney.
You are not alone. Thousands of people are accepting, cashing or depositing checks that turn out to be fraudulent. Your bank is aware of the (very likely) possibility that you and your bank account(s) might be the target of even more fraudulent activity-- and so the bank is taking necessary steps...Read more »
Your circumstances are unfortunate, and I want yo provide you with answers. However, more information is needed to provide you with an accurate answer. It is best to consult an attorney as soon as possible. You do not want statutes of limitations to run.
My son was giving word back to someone who was saying fight me then he called the police and told them that my son threatened him I was there and explained to them the situation but the police still gave us case number of threats! What will happen next?
If he is 17 then he is considered an adult for the purpose of CRIMINAL LAW in Texas. He will probably be charged with either Assault By Threat or Disorderly Conduct. Both are class C misdemeanors with a maximum fine of $500. He will probably receive a court date. If he fails to appear then he...Read more »
You should be fine with worse case scenario confiscation of any edibles or concentrates.
The Public statement has been that California screeners are not looking for cannabis. That being said, TSA is a FEDERAL agency and marijuana is still ILLEGAL on Federal property and ports of entry....Read more »
If usps drops of a bunch of mail and its up to security with no mail certification to sort mail and throw out “junk” mail which is up to discretion of the officer, then what crime is commited. Im looking for any reference to a statute in florida law. Also any reference to the possibility of... Read more »
Presumably residents have agreed that junk mail be discarded by security. If so, it would not be a crime to do so (and in any event it would be a federal matter; you will not find Florida state statutory law on the subject). Assuming that, you can be fired for refusing to do your job as assigned.
A woman that I know had stolen my credit card and used it at multiple different stores (11-13 stores). I have more then enough evidence: messages of her sending my card information to another women, email receipts of food deliveries that were sent to the apartment that she was staying at, also...

In any case the outcome is always the same until it comes out of the judges mouth that no one knows. Thus it can be guilty or not guilty. Based on what you have presented it sounds like it would definitely be a guilty
My sister was arrested on a child abuse charge after finding out 2 underage boys (ages 10 and 13) were molesting her 7 year old daughter. She tried to have a sit down with the parents of the boys which turned into her physically harming one of the boys. She now has court December 3rd. We do not... Read more »
She needs to get a lawyer ASAP. Even though her response was understandable given her background, they will likely try to go after her for either simple assault or aggravated assault. Ideally, it would end up being a simple assault charge, as that is a misdemeanor, but without more information, it...Read more »
