Matthew Williams' answer 1. Your attorney cannot "press charges" but the prosecuting attorney can based upon information provided by your attorney. 2. It is inappropriate for your attorney to remain your attorney, after reporting you to the police for trespassing. 3. If you have information regarding a murder, you need to take it to the police.
Matthew Williams' answer You have not asked a question. Assuming you are wondering if the hotel might be found liable in a lawsuit, it would depend on the circumstances and also whether actual injury occurred.
Matthew Williams' answer Sort of. Legally you can date whomever you please, but you must also obey reasonable rules set by your parents. Not dating adult men is a reasonable rule. So, while it is not criminal to date him without your parent's permission, your parents do have the legal right to enforce their rules by punishing you. Also, chronic disobedience of one's parents can eventually legal to being charged with delinquency. So, if you persist and they are unable to control you, that could become a criminal matter.
Matthew Williams' answer Did you tell them to fix it or not? I suspect their side of the story will be quite different. To answer your question, no they can't file charges. They can report a suspected crime to the police, who will investigate and work with a prosecutor to determine whether or not to file charges.
Matthew Williams' answer This issue is going to be governed by local municipal law. Many cities do have work restrictions particularly for the kind of construction work that makes a lot of noise. Check with city hall.
Matthew Williams' answer Your question is a bit unclear. There are no special limits on liability having to do with horses, but that doesn't really seem to be the point of your post. If your insurance company paid out, it has a right to seek reimbursement whether you want to settle the matter amicably or not. If you paid the bill, you can certainly work something out with your friend.
Matthew Williams' answer On the third DUS, the chance of getting jail time is real. Each court is a little different. If you are dealing with a busy court in a big city, it is less likely. If you are dealing with a small town court, it is more likely. You should get an attorney in either case. As to your second question, that appears to be a docket entry related to bond. Dockets are very difficult to read out of context. There are a whole host of different abbreviations used. That isn't enough for me to tell you...
Matthew Williams' answer It's impossible to say what exactly they will do with the no contact order without understanding the reasons for which she obtained it. Jail is rather unlikely. I am assuming the two of you were sexual intimate and this child may well be yours. As long as sex was consensual and she was over the age of 16, you are ok are far as statutory rape laws go. With your history together a contributing charge is more likely, if there is a criminal charge at all. It would be a good idea to retain a lawyer...
Matthew Williams' answer Yes, as odd as this sounds, it is illegal for you to possess, create, solicit, distribute, or otherwise have anything at all to do with a nude picture of her, but technically, you two could have a legal, private, sexual relationship. Weird right?
