I don't have a fire arm license, for example, if the police would have found Byrna SD pepper ball gun in my house can they charge me with anything?
answered on Feb 14, 2023
Charged with "anything" is pretty broad. That said, this device is not listed as a firearm in the Penal Law of NYS, nor does it seem capable of discharging a bullet without alteration, so does not appear to require a firearm license. You should review PL section 265.00 to satisfy... Read more »

New York State does not have the death penalty, so your character would not be getting the needle here. There is still a federal death penalty, and the majority of "death row" prisoners in the federal system are held in USP Terre Haute, Indiana.

Your question straddles a number of categories. I can only speak for the civil part; a criminal defense attorney could address criminal aspects. In my experience, it is the judge who makes decisions on dismissals. Your question includes the word "only." I can only say that I haven't... Read more »

If your tenants do not have the protection of an unexpired current lease and are not rent regulated, you may commence a holdover proceeding to recover possession of the apartment. Strongly recommend retaining an experienced landlord/tenant attorney to assist you with the process.

Depends on the law in each state. However, accepting cash is legal. The problem is whether the deed can be filed, which serves as notice to the world that the person who paid cash for the property is the true owner. The deed should be corrected pursuant to the terms of the written contract of... Read more »

So long as the warrant is legal, and the search does not greatly exceed the scope of the warrant, then yes, whatever the feds find can be used as a basis of prosecution. A search which greatly exceeds the scope of a warrant would be like where the warrant orders the federal agents to search for... Read more »

There are military law attorneys on this forum who have experience with such matters, and they could answer best. But your post remains open for a day, and it is probably best to take some form of action without further delay. You could show the notice to your commanding officer and request their... Read more »
I wanted to know if i would go to jail if the crosswalk sign said to stop and i passed but the traffic light told the car to go almost hitting me. I dont know if this makes any sense...
answered on Jul 30, 2021
No one goes to jail for most traffic offenses (other than leaving the scene or reckless driving in some states).
If someone is in the crosswalk traffic has to stop. If no one is in it and traffic has a green light they may proceed.

I have text history of giving him this money but I’m not sure if that’s considered legitimate evidence. This man continuously ghosts me everytime after he promised he would get it to me.

Many of the things you say lead us to believe that your situation is quite unusual, and for that reason you really need to speak with an immigration attorney so s/he can advise you on your options based on your particular circumstances.
