A judge has a lot of latitude to say what he feels will impact someone he is speaking to or sentencing or ruling on a request for ROR or lowered bond etc. Judges have an ethical duty to be courteous and to treat every person who comes before the court with dignity.

Hello,

I am having to assume that your "juvenile sex case" is a register(able) offense, were it an adult offense. Your question stresses "that I successfully completed." Do you mean by this that you completed juvenile probation? Or, perhaps that you were granted a Withheld Judgment or a Diversion? Were you prosecuted as an adult or juvenile? What state were you prosecuted in? If you would like me to answer your question please provide a bit more specificity to your question.

Q: Can I sue my mom for not paying me money she owes me?

Courts in most states would construe such an arrangement as a gratuitous promise, unsupported by consideration, and therefore unenforceable at law. In short if you attempted to engage in litigation to recover the requested sum it is unlikely that you will be successful.
