Very likely not. You'll go through the juvenile system, which makes every effort *not* to detain kids away from their families. Cooperate, show (and actually feel) remorse, and garner family support, and you should be OK.
No idea - and I just answered a *very* similar question on here. Sounds like it should be a probation case, but you never know and it depends what you're charged with. Aggravated assault is a felony; simple assault is a misdemeanor. Two very different animals, and the punishments for each...Read more »
I am being accused of using someone else's checking account information to pay two of my credit cards. The first was my home Depot card, and I notified the person that was the checking account owner that a payment was about to go through, and the account owner called his bank and stopped the...

I had never been in trouble, I was given an f2 unauthorized act in writing. Only thing I did was sign the reciept. From what I have researched I should of gotten a misdemeanor not a F2 and m2 for theft by unlawful taking

You need to contact the Assistant District Attorney handling your husband's case, and tell him/her your position on things. "Strangulation" is a relatively new statute in Pennsylvania, and it's a second-degree felony - punishable by a maximum of 10 years in jail. It's no...Read more »
she is not awake and in no way gave consent for him to sign. I am her poa and have been motoring her bank account and paying bills for her. He did not tell me about it and is unaware I have a cess to her account. They are not married nor have children together, there is no joint account. What legal... Read more »
you need to notify the bank immediately if a check was paid on a "forged necessary endorsement"--namely her signature or the signature of the person using the check. He will have to put the money in the account. A problem may be that it sounds like he is in her house.
Last year I did this thing online that they said they will pay you for. I received the check in the mail. I went to cash it and the lady at the bank asked me how I got the check . I told her I got it in the mail. She said she needs to verify it. She took a copy of my ID and took my phone number. I... Read more »
The only way to get a felony warrant lifted is to appear in front of the issuing authority. They will process you and set bail. Its always a good idea to have local counsel as they can usually arrange to do everything at once which speeds up the process. There is no burden on the Commonwealth to...Read more »
There may be a protective order in your case, which could explain why you cannot have and/or see your discovery. However, you will need to know what the evidence is against you in order to make proper decisions in your case, so you can certainly ask your lawyer when she/he will be able to discuss...Read more »
My sons football coach was recently arrested on child pornography charges. He’s been investigated since August 12 and on August 17 his home was searched and evidence was taken that day. None of the parents were informed of this and he was still allowed to coach our children. Is this grounds to... Read more »
Charges are sometimes brought in these types of cases. There was a heavily publicized case in Massachusetts recently where a young woman encouraged her friend to kill himself and he did. She was convicted of charges for this.
I use to watch a child because the mother never took care of her child, I called services on her so many time because the mother would never take care of her child but after time I could no longer see the child the mother took her and was hiding and then now one person is going to court to get...

I'm not sure there's anything you can do but I do suggest that you consult in person with an experienced family law attorney to discuss this matter in detail. It's a bit unclear from what you've written but I'm sure in a face to face meeting it will all come out.
I'm not sure what you're asking. If you were a witness to a crime you can go to the police. You can't file for a Protection from Abuse order on behalf of a competent adult, even if he/she is your child.
To get more specific, me and him dated for about a month when I was 16 ( no sexual contact at all). However my mother found out and he left far away. I just turned 18 about a month ago and I contacted him because I still have strong feelings for him and we started dating again. Can my mother still... Read more »
She could certainly try. It would be very tough for a prosecutor to engage in a case like this because of the difficulty in proving any contact. There may be some charges for corruption of a minor but that would be again very difficult for them to prove. Keeping in mind that pressing charges is a...Read more »
In the most direct form the answer to your question is no. However, the real answer is it depends. Depends on your age, depends on the content of the message, depends on who is making the decision on legality, and it depends on how she views the message. If the messages could be construed as you...Read more »
