Matthew Williams' answer If you did not know, and did not have reason to suspect he was fleeing, you shouldn't be. But, if approached by authorities, you should be very careful about what you say. Speak to a lawyer first.
Matthew Williams' answer The police can question a child without his or her parent(s) present, yes. But a child has the same rights as anyone not to talk to the police if he or she does not want to. Why do they want to talk to a child that is neither a suspect nor a witness?
Justin B. Benedict's answer I'm sorry that you are going through this. Generally, grandparents do have visitation rights but it is limited to certain situations by Ohio law. While you can file a motion pro se (without an attorney), it is likely in your best interests to find an attorney to review your case and help you complete this task. You can use the find a lawyer section of this website or contact the bar association closest to the court which would have jurisdiction over the child (usually the county court in...
Gary Kollin's answer You notice there is a limitation of amount of characters. That is so you can write your question without all the extraneous material like "poor boy" and "not to mention many hours of legal work".
I am not trying to be an English teacher, but you have run on sentences, no punctuation, no capitalization and abbreviations which are not universal. I cannot understand what you are asking.
I suggest you rewrite the question succinctly and grammatically correct
Matthew Williams' answer Whoa! Slow down. You are just running with a bunch of stuff you clearly do not understand well.
Let's start with this preliminary question on which half of your argument rests: what offense(s) were you originally indicted with, and what offense were you convicted of? If the offense you were convicted of is a lesser included offense, then the state did not need a new amendment. Since you have given no information about what you were charged with and what you were convicted of, that half...
Joseph Jaap's answer If the police aren't helping you get inside to get your things, then you'll have to get a lawyer and the court involved. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local attorney to assist you.
Matthew Williams' answer It really depends where the rack is, whether it is accessible from inside the vehicle, and whether the firearms is of specific length, can have the action open, etc. What describe is likely legally. Read this...http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2923.16
Matthew Williams' answer School and police officials can question a child without the child's parents present. As far as the law enforcement side of it, the child does have the right to refuse to answer questions from a law enforcement official and/or to insist on the presence of an attorney. The police are not required to "take reports."
Matthew Williams' answer Police had had pretty good luck with the courts when it comes to opening containers found in the passenger compartment of a vehicle. The rationale that there could be a weapon in there is appealing to the courts, which have shown great concern for officers' safety during traffic stops. Ultimately, it comes down to a question of whether or not the search is reasonable. The court will weigh all the various factors. But, understand that most courts will lean heavily towards permitting any search...
Matthew Williams' answer If the prosecutor can be convinced the new evidence raises serious questions about the guilt of the accused, he or she can be helpful in defense efforts to reopen the case for a new trial.
Matthew Williams' answer Free speech protections do not apply to defamation, and opinions are not defamation. Defamation is a false statement of fact (not opinion) that damages a person's reputation. If I say John the surgeon is the worst, I am not uttering defamation because that's my opinion of John. If say John the surgeon left a scalpel in my body, and it is not true, that is defamation.
In all likelihood, a person living in Spain would sue you in Spanish courts because the damage done to their reputation...
Matthew Williams' answer Perjury occurs when a person lies under oath during a court proceeding. Not just when someone lies. Most of the accountability for this sort of stuff is in potential removal from the position by the rest of the council, difficulty getting re-elected, and trouble working with others in the community in the future, not the law.
Matthew Williams' answer The constitutionally protected right to travel is the right the move from one state to another without border controls. Cars and highways didn't even exist when that right was created. You have no right to use publicly funded roads in a manner which endangers others.
Matthew Williams' answer It sounds like he has already been charged. Have you talked to the prosecutor or victim advocate yet? You will want to make sure these folks know he has a gun. How much time he can get depends on exactly what he is charged with and his history. A first time domestic charge is a first degree misdemeanor. 6 months is the maximum sentence for that charge so there is no way to make him get more if that's the charge. Also, its the judge who decides how much time he gets, not you.
Matthew Williams' answer You're in a tough spot. Here's the run down on the expungement laws. First, you cannot seal the OVI. That isn't a huge concern because it probably isn't the OVI which is alarming your landlord. Unfortunately, It is also likely you cannot seal anything. But, I would need to review your entire record to be sure.
You can seal a record if the offense is eligible, and you are an eligible offender. Violent felonies and offenses which are first degree misdemeanors with a victim under the age...
