Q: It has been two weeks since I was able to talk to my wife in jail. She has no bond and is on suicide watch in Lee county

Q: Does a county Board of Supervisors(Lamar County, MS) have the right to tell a property owner to clean up their property

If the property has debris, trash, nonrunning equipment and parts, old campers, broken vehicles, etc., can the Supervisors order the clean up of the property of place a fine or tax on the property owner. The property is outside city limits by about 3 miles.

Arthur Calderon

Yes. The County Board of Supervisors may follow the statute to mandate that the property be cleaned at the owner's expense, and if the property is not cleaned, then the County can go in and clean the property and bill the owner.

Q: I have an enhanced carry permit issued in MS, do I follow MS laws regarding carry, or at there differences in AR law?

For example, in MS I can carry in a church or school with the Instructor Certification. If a place has signage prohibiting carry, I can only be charged with trespass not a firearms charge. Is AR the same?

Your best bet is going to be to contact an AR attorney, as the laws vary between each state.

I'm assuming that your question goes to an involuntary commitment to the state hospital. Without more information regarding the circumstances of your pick-up, you will need to consult an attorney to see if anything can be done.
