After a national bank allowed a fraudulent account to be opened in my name I froze my credit with all three bureaus and added a fraud alert. Weeks later, another national bank ignored the freeze and the fraud alert and opened new accounts in my name, along with obviously suspicious activity.
answered on Mar 4, 2023
You may have recourse against the national bank that ignored the credit freeze and fraud alert. You could start by filing a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) or with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) if the bank is a national bank. You could also... Read more »
I got the police called on me for refusing to leave a company’s property. The police showed up and were just going to write me a ticket for underage drinking. I was talking disrespectfully to the officer as he was writing my ticket. The officer then took action and tried to cuff me. I pulled my... Read more »

Any charge can be dropped, but charges initiated by police contact are the least likely to be dropped. The good news is without a criminal history, you're unlikely to face much if any jail time, let alone prison. The bad news is that anytime a cop runs your name, it's going to come back... Read more »
These are not related to me. The first was a DV offense where she kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach two years ago. 3.5 months ago she was pulled over with superdrunk 3rd DUI(Felony). In both cases she was arrested, Warrants were requested by police, but the prosecutors office ignored them on... Read more »

Charging decisions are wholly within the prosecutor's discretion. Regarding the DV offense, if it was two years ago, I think it's a foregone conclusion what the prosecutor thinks of that. Could be witness issues, and apparently the pregnant woman hasn't been in the prosecutor's... Read more »
And I am on probation for 24m and I get SSI and they try to say I have to get a job when it court order
answered on Jun 27, 2022
Often, terms of probation will include substance abuse or mental health treatment even if not a part of the sentencing offense. The rationale is that even if you didn't get busted for drugs, substance abuse probably played a role in the assault.

When someone punches another in the face, reportedly triggering a seizure and the individual dies does this constitute murder?

There are several statutory forms of murder: 1st degree / felony murder, second degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, and involuntary manslaughter. The facts of the case determine the degree.
In the fact scenario you provided, the person could be charged with involuntary manslaughter,... Read more »

Simple answer is you can't. Criminal cases are a matter of public record. Is your husband convicted or charged and acquitted? Even if acquitted, court filings are generally available to the public.

Not sure what your question is, but marijuana and it's byproducts are still largely unlawful under federal law, hence probably the USPS response you received.
a check was written, contract (stating non refundable $780) was signed. After check was deposited, the client cancelled the check. is this a civil case or a federal case?
answered on Jan 11, 2023
It's a contract case. State case; small claims actually. Your damages are $780, and maybe any fees your bank charged you.
I am in Michigan and was convicted of a felony in 1998. Great bodily harm less than murder. I know that it is up to the individual companies, but wondering if there is any law, state or federal , that would prevent me from working there.
answered on Sep 28, 2022
Working there? I don't think so. Probably not in the gun section. You should look into, at the very least, restoring your gun rights, though.
If the victim & perpetrator live in different states but were both in the same state at the time, where should the victim lodge a complaint, in which state's court should I file and is it still considered a federal crime if the crime didn't cross state lines?

You should contact Detroit police. Frankly, I'm not sure what they are going to do with a three year old complaint.

Likely not. Are you wanting this information? If you don't, you can tell your friend to stop. But generally, if your ex-boyfriend if posting stuff publicly on Facebook, it's there for the taking.
Besides this assault charge from 2014 and a 1-5 over speeding ticket I have no record. Today(6/7/2022) I went to purchase a firearm and the background check was “delayed”. I’m just wondering when or even if I will be allowed to purchase and own a firearm. State of Michigan.
answered on Jun 8, 2022
You should be allowed to purchase firearms with a misdemeanor UNLESS it's a form of domestic violence. The delay is likely to fact-check that.

I think the safest course of action would be to contact the school and ask.
He was the one from prison who done the fake anthraxs to the judge I know he done wrong but I am worried he had tried to commit suicide once before and just to know he is ok I still love my son I don't appreciate his behavior.
answered on Apr 11, 2022
What jail or prison is he being held in? You can contact that facility. They probably won't tell you specifics but they may pass along a request that your son contact you. Or you can explain the situation and request that a chaplain or someone check up on him.

Police, courts, and prosecutors have various levels of governmental immunity that makes it extremely hard to sue them without a clear and very intentional violation.
And the letter say to come to their office 2 plus hours away and bring a lawyer with in the next 2 years or they may issue a warrant?
answered on Feb 1, 2022
2 years? It's entirely plausible for the FBI or any of the other "3-letter organizations" to reach out to you and let you know you are a target of investigation to secure your cooperation. There are also a lot of scams out there.

Death certificates are administrative, and may show more than what an autopsy determines. It's reasonable to expect some lag time.

All I can recommend is for you to keep contacting different attorneys. Every attorney charges differently. But at the end of the day, this is a business. Litigation is expensive, and without a substantial retainer up front, that is all money coming out of the lawyer's pocket.
