Not sure of your "Court" fraud, but a Governmental Tort Liability Action is 1 year from injury. Probably any other applicable cause of action will also be 1 year, except some property torts are 3 years.
In your factual statement you didn’t recite whether they had a warrant or not. There are lots of factors that go into suppressing an illegal search and seizure. You need to immediately contact and or retain a criminal defense attorney who can go over the facts carefully and make a decision on...Read more »
Hopefully your Diversion is completed, including costs. Then the Indictment and Judgment must be Dismissed. Finally you have to Expunge everything, which can take a few months. Only then will you be ready to buy firearms from an FFL and vote.
My ex wife is on pre trial diversion for child support. I never receive hardly anything (maybe 20 a month), when she’s ordered to pay $500. She had court and I was told the judge “read the riot act” to her. What does this mean?
That is slang for the judge told her he was going to send her to prison if she didn’t make the most of the pretrial diversion opportunity or if she committed any new crimes. It’s a stern waning not to screw up.
It happened in Ohio, but I live in Kansas now. There are also other witnesses to what happened to me. He also showed me C.P. as I was told by 2 key witnesses... This was my grandfather that did this to me

Expungement may be possible but is dependent on when he was "acquitted," how the case was handled, and what he was accused of. There are different rules for felonies, misdemeanors, and traffic violations. As of 2021, most charges that did NOT result in a conviction can be expunged. He...Read more »

Hey there, depends on what you searched. If there is a suspected threat to National security, there could be more investigations. You have a better chance If you actually haven’t been convicted of any crimes. Also a student Visa is a non immigrant visa, so better to describe it as Entering the...Read more »

There’s no way to know without seeing all of the evidence that is in the possession of the state.

This is a great question as it has come up previously due to the changes in the Federal court system system because of the pandemic. In the end, however, the possibility for you to perform community service online is going to be specific to the court in which your case is in, and even more...Read more »
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.
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.
I’m assuming that you mean that you’re currently on pretrial release while your case is pending, correct? You can certainly terminate and hire a new lawyer at any time. If your current lawyer is court-appointed, you should discuss it with them to determine whether or not you would be eligible...Read more »
