Q: My elderly parents had a son abuse his POA privilege and stole from their bank account, should they report it to police?

Answered on Sep 18, 2017

This is really a personal decision, not a legal question. They should understand the consequence could be quite severe, if the matter is reported. And, particularly if the family is otherwise on good terms, a repayment plan and an a heart to heart may be a much better option.

Answered on Sep 15, 2017

It depends upon why he was deported. He will have to wait until his bar to reentry is expired and then file an I-212. Then you can sponsor him. You should work on becoming a citizen in the interim so he will be an immediate relative and not subject to the presence system.

Answered on Sep 13, 2017

Without 1) custody and 2) interrogation, law enforcement may talk with you about any and everything without the need to inform you of your rights. You are always (very limited exceptions apply) free to say "I don't have anything else to say to you at this time".

Q: Does this law mean that a parolee and their property can be searched anytime based only on suspicion of neighbors?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for Arkansas on
Answered on Sep 8, 2017

I took a similar issue to the Arkansas Supreme Court and lost. The parolee agreed to allowing the parole officer search him at home and in his car. The local police stopped him, searched him, found contraband, arrested him. I argued that the agreement did not allow the police to search without a warrant. Arkansas Supreme Court changed the law to allow the police to search.

I say all that so you will know that a parolee can be searched just about any time and under just about any...

Answered on Aug 29, 2017

Honestly no. Why is it your friends problem to pay to ship you your stuff.

Most attorneys cost over $200.00 per hour so your best bet is to pay to have your stuff sent to you.

There also seems to be more to the back story than being told here.

Q: What are the charges on a felon in possession of a firearm in his dwellings in state of Iowa first time

1 Answer | Asked in Federal Crimes and Criminal Law for Iowa on
Answered on Aug 28, 2017

I'm not entirely sure what you are asking. I assume that is two counts of felon in possession of a fire arm in federal district court in Iowa? The penalties depend on prior criminal history. The federal sentencing guidelines are complicated and you will need excellent representation.

Q: A friend of mine has accused a fellow student whom she was dating of sexual assault at her school.

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law, Education Law, Federal Crimes and Sexual Harassment for New York on
Answered on Aug 24, 2017

You should discuss this with a civil rights lawyer. Your question deals with harassment on school property and many facts that you should not post here should be analyzed such as public versus private school, what the school knew or should have known and details of the assault.

These are very complex. Sometimes they even rise to criminal charges. Speak with a civil rights litigation lawyer in your city. Contact the county bar association or look on NELA national employment lawyers...

Answered on Aug 23, 2017

Your question is not really clear. Sounds like Party C did not sign any deed. Party A can sell only his/her own interest. If these are mineral interests Party C should be unaffected by A's deed.

1 Answer | Asked in Child Custody and Federal Crimes for Ohio on
Answered on Aug 23, 2017

Start with the medical facilities at which she and he are doing that, and inform the facilities that those two have no rights to information about your child. If they have wrongfully obtained information or drugs, then report that also. If he father has no custody rights, then how is your child even in his care? Use the Find a Lawyer tab and talk to a local family law attorney.

Q: If a movie has a 20 year old playing a 16 year old with sex/nude scenes could that be considered child porn

1 Answer | Asked in Federal Crimes and Criminal Law for California on
Answered on Aug 20, 2017

Under Title 18 of the United States code, the Federal criminal code,“minor” means any person under the age of eighteen years. Under the California criminal code, possession of child porn relates to a representation of a child who is under 18. The statutes do not discuss the roles played by the actors. If you are the movie maker, it would be prudent to consult an attorney. Facts that you consider unimportant could make a critical difference or invoke some other criminal statute. Also, full...

Q: If one was convicted of a non-violent felony. Could one ask for a modern day banishment like to the wilds of Alaska?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for Georgia on
Answered on Aug 20, 2017

Not going to happen, in a federal court. I know of no instance of that occurring. Federal sentencing guidelines do not have that particular punishment on the books. Just plain old federal prison, if sentenced to serve time.

So you want your image obscured when the video is presented to a judge or jury? Probably not, but you could ask the prosecutor. Why, is public knowledge of the fact that you were there likely to damage your reputation?
