There is an old city ordinance which has not been enforced in Kansas City in a very long time that provides for a fine of fifty cents if you do.
One of the reasons many elected officials promote "Sunset" laws is that originally laws, ordinances, and regulations were passed with no... Read more »
I know where I am confused, due to this is my 1st offense.
I don't know if I'm still on P&P... Nor when I can start procedures to get expungement
answered on Aug 4, 2022
Most offenses in Kansas may be expunged if the conditions set forth in the expungement statute (K.S.A. 21-6614) are met. Depending upon the specific crime, there is a waiting period of three or five years (with a few exceptions of one, seven and ten year waiting periods) from completion of... Read more »

I'm sorry, your question seems to be incomplete. Could you please provide more context and clarify your question?
Would this be a computer crime or invasion of privacy

It depends on the facts and circumstances. A lot of people take screenshots of work (and personal) emails to share with others later.
It depends on the content and why they are sharing it.
The officer never addressed the initial reason for the traffic stop. I believe he was on a "fishing expedition "and went beyond the scope of the initial reason for the stop. He questioned me in his car until I felt I had no choice, but to consent because of the things that were said. He... Read more »

You should immediately hire a criminal defense attorney licensed in the State of Missouri to investigate your search and seizure issues as well as build your defense to the criminal charges. Good luck.
My attorney has not been able to get my discovery and this case is 8 months old he tells me that the courts won't talk to him maby because he is from out of town. He says the only way he believes I can get the discovery is if I fill out a application for Diversion. I told him I believe the... Read more »

It sounds like your attorney is doing his job. Either plead guilty or start preparing for Trial, and a possible appeal. It does not appear that further Discovery will help any more than what you already know.
And they said they were searching it anyways is that legal
answered on Mar 12, 2022
There's not really enough information to give you any real advice. However generally a traffic stop by itself does not allow an officer to search your vehicle unless he sees, hears, smells something that rises to probable cause. If you had something in plain view, that's enough. Otherwise... Read more »
Level 3 person felony I believe was where it fell on the table.

You would either to have your convictions expunged or pardoned. Even then, it becomes more of an issue on the federal level.
The argument was resolved. Few minutes later, loud pounding at my door. Idk who it was, I knew it wasn't my BF. They said police here for walfare check. I then said I didn't request one. Open door slightly and told them ok I am good. They ask can they come in I said no I don't want... Read more »

I'd recommend either getting a public defender or hiring a criminal defense attorney.

The issue is more about the federal restrictions on firearms, so even if Kansas were to allow you to have firearms again, the federal government won't.

If you were found guilty of four separate assault charges, then yes you would most likely go to jail.

This 16yr old boy gets a ride from his older sister,upon getting out he takes a bag full of guns. she does nothing to retrieve them from him. He ends up killing someone with one of these guns. would that fall under this category?
answered on Jan 12, 2021
Based on the limited facts presented in the question, this is highly unlikely to meet the definition of aiding and abetting or accessory. There must be some knowledge and/or voluntary participation in the crime. If the sister's only "involvement" is seeing the boy take the guns, and... Read more »
I know that civil procedure limits the number of words in complaints, but if I basically wrote an entire book, 70,000 words, as a witness statement, can this be introduced as evidence in a court of law?

A Kansas criminal appeals attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for two weeks. In civil court, either original jurisdiction or on appeal, a judge with a busy docket is not going to have patience for something like that. Good luck
answered on Jun 16, 2020
A Kansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Additionally, this is not a safety issue that most traffic ticket or car accident attorneys deal with on a regular basis. It's performance gear and other than the usual federal transportation regs, state vehicle... Read more »
My friend was walk through a parking lot and a cop approached her telling her to stay out of all parking lots because they are private property. We dumpster dive and want to remain in standing with the law.
answered on Apr 14, 2020
Yes. However, there is a gray area because they can be available to the public for their appropriate use (ie. using Walmart's parking lot to purchase goods at Walmart). Additionally, dumpster diving is also also a gray area and can be private or public depending on the jurisdiction and... Read more »

20 year old black man forced my girlfriend to kiss him while groping and biting her neck and breasts. This happened at the WSU campus. The police only told him to avoid contact. What can be done?
answered on Oct 6, 2019
You cannot represent her because you are not a lawyer.
She can go to administration or a woman's help group on campus
But the hair on the back of my neck stood up immediately when I saw it was important to you that you made sure that the readers knew the alleged perpetrator is... Read more »
