I am asking on behalf of a relative who, due to a misunderstanding, was falsely charged with an altercation against law enforcement. I understand that the subject itself is touchy, but I am at a loss as to what they can do. To sum up the event:
First, after a traumatic event, it's important to pause to regain as much of a clam demeanor as can be. It's difficult to avoid feeling defensive and emotional, but valuable to try view the situation as a problem or puzzle that needs to be solved. Assume that there is a solution. the challenge...Read more »
There is no charge of cowardice. Under the circumstances the estate of the deceased may bring a civil action. They should check with the Minnesota Civil Liberties Union to ask on "police misconduct" cases who their "cooperating attorneys" are. Those attorneys give free consultations. Note: this is...Read more »
3 of my roommates lack discipline and manners and they talk with loud voice even they are sitting 2 feet from each other which I don't understand. They sound to me like bunch of villagers where they talk loud, laugh in the middle of the night ignoring other people are trying to sleep.
"Hello, from what I heard, you want me to attend a religious-based tribunal. From the looks of it, you are putting me on trial to see if I should remain a member of your faith. To ensure this tribunal is fair & unbiased, I will bring in my own representation & eyewitnesses to the said tribunal.... Read more »
Please, for your own sake, do not post any more information about this case online. It only takes one search for the police to determine who you are and link anything you say online to your case. Valid or not, you will need an attorney to review the facts and defend you.
As a criminal defense lawyer, when I have a client accused of a crime and that accusation is supported by purported evidence obtained by law enforcement officers executing a search warrant, if police failed to comply with what the Judge authorized then I would normally make a motion to suppress...Read more »
I got pulled over on the highway by a state patrol he gave me a dar ticket then he left he called dispatch and told them to watch me on the camera and let him know if I leave I left but he never pulled me over again he didn't even see me leave but cause he had somebody watch the camera until I did...

More than one defense comes to mind based on this description. Evidence of the identity of whoever may have been seen driving a vehicle via a traffic cam, would seem to be lacking. The prosecution could also have witness problems, needing not only the State Patrol Officer but also whoever was the...Read more »
I live in Minnesota and as I was 15 I was charged with a felony and was in adjudicated delinquent which from my understanding is the equivalent of the guilty verdict. My dream in life even before that was to become a police officer. And I've had very bad luck finding the answer online but if I was... Read more »
The best way to get a good answer to those question would be to ask the right person with the P.O.S.T. Board (police licensing agency in Minnesota), and the appropriate military branch (probably with the J.A.G. office, not a recruiter, for example).
I want to at least force them to take it down. I dont deserve to have my reputation as a person hurt like this and people I dont know now know who I am. I dont feel safe and I dont feel like I have any power here. I feel harrassed and I don't believe they should be able to do this. Especially on a... Read more »
Did you have a warrant for your arrest? Were you arrested? Were you charged with a crime? If so, then you may be out of luck. However, if they simply used your image and humiliated you for no good reason, then you may have a case.

1. You asked your attorney to file a civil complaint and there is no indication that your attorney could file a civil complaint in your case. In fact, based on the limited information you have provided your attorney would not be able to file a separate case.
I recently got a ticket for driving on a cancelled license but I was parked at a gas station and the police were called there for another person but because that person came and sat in my car they searched my car and towed it I was not on drugs or drinking i simply was minding my own business
there are no illegal actions alleged in this event on my part. the state patrol found it necessary to have car towed "without regard for the owners expense" as state patrol proper procedure states. car was in ditch locked and unattended.i did not have a phone to call for help after i hit a deer...

First, try the state police--as to getting your stuff. Second if you have collision that should cover tow and storage. Third, if you can borrow the money then argue--at 35 a day before you know it it's over 1k. Better to have the car, then argue than have a gigantic bill and if you lose the...Read more »
I filed for a MN carry permit and was denied. I have never been charged with crime nor been under any know investigations in my entire life. The denial letters said there was an accusation when I was 13 of pointing a BB gun at somebody as the bases for denial. Subsequently I have appealed this... Read more »
I recently tried out for the HS softball team. I was nervous because I have erbs palesy making few things difficult. There are quite a few coaches maybe 5 and I had informed some of them about my disibility and each one had said it was fine. I went into the evaluation practice and gave it my all I... Read more »
More would need to be known before an attorney could properly evaluate your case, but feel free to give one a call as I believe this could be handled at a rather reasonable cost. The attorney would want to know 1) If a doctor has cleared you to play sports; and 2) Whether everybody made the team....Read more »
