In general, debts do have a statute of limitations after which they cannot be legally collected. However, the statute of limitations for debt collection can vary depending on the type of debt and the state where the debt was incurred. It's important to review the laws in your specific state...View More
I was in bed asleep at that time of the violation and the vehicle I don’t drive. It’s a spare for the family. No one in my family was ever pulled over on this date and time or any other time. Is this legal?
Certainly sounds like a mistake was made, which happens from time to time. You should plead not guilty, which means a hearing will be scheduled that you will have to appear for. It should be as simple as the officer realizing he/she made a mistake when you see him/her at the hearing. You can also...View More
I was charged with public intoxication but plead noy guilty due to the circumstances and that my professional license would be affected. The magistrate offered a plea to a local ordinance violation that he said would stay local and not be accessible without search warrant. I received a citation... View More
The difference is that public drunkenness is a violation of the Pennsylvania crimes code, whereas a local ordinance is not. It is only a violation of the local ordinance, or administrative code. It is not a criminal offense, but there will still be a public record generated in connection with the...View More

I got a ticket for parking on someone's property and when I received the ticket I meant to plead guilty and pay the fine but accidently selected not guilty and sent the check in. I wasn't aware of the mistake until I received the letter in the mail with the court date and time. Is there a... View More
You may be able to contact the court and ask them to change the plea. Some courts will allow you to send an email or a fax to their office asking that your plea be changed to guilty - they're going to want something from you in writing indicating that you wish to plead guilty.
If I join the military as a JAG, I am required to serve there for four years. In the long term, I want to be a federal judge. However, will spending four years as a JAG hurt my chances of becoming a federal judge given that I will be four years behind in regards to clerking for judges compared to... View More
Maybe the best person to pose your question to could be a former JAG. But your question remains open for four weeks. Given the high regard for the program because of its selection process, many would see it as a strong accomplishment. Some might see the fact that you would probably be working with...View More

I just maxed a 3 to 6 year sentence a judge gave me. I was originally sentenced to 3 to 12 months in the county and 3 years probation. I had no new charges, yet the judge resentenced me and added more time on to my sentence making me have to do 6 years instead of 3. I had tech violations but it... View More
From your location this is an Ohio question, which I am not qualified to answer. However, if this is a Pennsylvania question the answer is that if probation is revoked you can be resentenced to anything that was originally allowable. Its an important differentiation between probation and parole....View More
My child is a senior this year, her school has sent out letters saying they wish to go cyber for the rest of the year March 30th.

Yes, the school is within its legal rights to disseminate education to its students through online learning. Requiring students to attend school, in person, could put more students at risk than necessary, so providing online education would not violate any laws.
More specifically, a municipality. To be quite forward, under notice fairly given.
Any attempt to extract fees, or prosecute for said fees, under a non dangerous, non moving violation such as a parking ticket. The ticket would be considered a first step in legal procedure correct? And must... View More
I think I get the gist of your question this time. The ticket is not evidence against you it is simply notice that you have committed a violation. On that ticket is information about what you need to do to challenge that violation. The ticket does not assign a value for a penalty it merely puts...View More
Yes, there are minimum requirements of Due Process. What that means is almost entirely impossible to explain in this format. There are hundreds of articles written on this on the internet.

Person A feels like they are being treated unfairly and is being retaliated against because person B is affiliated with the officials who are prosecuting Person A. Is this case supposed to be handled different than normally?
My husband is currently disabled and we have had no income now for months. Until he can get any kind of help we have to pay to get our prior taxes done for his corporation (he no longer has - due to not being able to walk anymore); before we can do our personal taxes.
The penalty varies from plan to plan. You can check with the plan administrator to determine exact amount. It is unlikely that the IRS is even aware of the pension plan, do very doubtful that they will be able to seize money.
