Peter N. Munsing answered on Dec 10, 2019

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.

Expungements are discretionary, meaning that just because you qualify doesn't mean that the judge has to grant it. And it will... Read more »

Mr. Kent Thomas Jones Esq. answered on Dec 4, 2019

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.

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.
