Question 2: resident was visiting for... View More
A person does not have a normal expectation of privacy in a hotel room like they would in their own home so the entry in scenario one sounds legitimate. I would contact the police about the missing property. They have more power and resources to investigate and if they end up charging an employee...View More

It’s a little hard to follow your fact pattern but it sounds like you’re saying he was charged with a misdemeanor for two years and then a few days before a trial they moved it up to a felony? That is very rare and sounds strange. It’s possible for them to indict felony charges at any time as...View More
Yes. Typically in these type of cases a competency evaluation is performed and once the results are in there is a competency hearing. Both the prosecution and defense argue their position and the judge ultimately decides the issue.

In a residence he is in, but doesn't own that is occupied by others who aren't felons? Riding with someone who isn't a felon? In the home he shares with his son who is not a felon? How far does the unconstitutional nonsense infringe on the freedoms of others? Should he be wearing a... View More
All of the examples you gave could qualify as a felon in possession under the statute. Not saying that’s right but that’s the current state of the law. Have you considered expungement as a possible solution to your problem.
