Hire a competent criminal attorney to represent you quickly. You will at least need a Motion To Suppress Evidence filed if indicted. At General Sessions, prepare for a Preliminary Hearing. PDs are not going to do this. This is a public forum and you have already stated too many facts.

That is not employment related, but organizations can govern themselves. If some organization guideline or handbook rule has been violated, then the offended member/former member can assert his rights under those rules. But Tennessee Law rarely applies, and Court action rarely interferes.

Documentation is usually Heresay, but leads to Witnesses. Husband needs an attorney to represent him, so hire a competent one. Having charges in multiple Counties is difficult and expensive, as reaching a disposition in one Court just puts in jail in another County. Whatever he has been doing... Read more »

It is not legal for law enforcement to coerce or threaten someone to provide information or act as an informant in exchange for leniency in their own criminal case. This is a violation of the individual's rights and can lead to further legal consequences for the officer.

It is possible that you may have a legal claim for discrimination and/or retaliation under federal and/or state laws.

The process to restore your right to own a firearm after a domestic violence conviction varies depending on the state you reside in. Generally, if you have a domestic violence misdemeanor conviction, you are prohibited from possessing a firearm under federal law. However, some states have... Read more »
Recently I was booted by my school, then told if I didn't sign an agreement to pay their parking fees they would keep the boot on my car. I'd like to challenge that staff member and campus officer to mutual combat via fisticuffs (with the nessicary PPE provided by myself).
answered on Mar 2, 2023
No, it is illegal to engage in mutual combat in Tennessee, even if both parties consent to it. Mutual combat is considered a form of assault and is prohibited by law. Engaging in mutual combat can result in criminal charges and other legal consequences. Additionally, attempting to challenge a... Read more »

Domestic Assault is worse than some Felonies, and you should have known that 25 years ago prior to pleading. I assume that conviction is on your NCIC. You may wish to examine the legal weapons you can possess. There are muzzleloaders that can kill an elephant.
The leasing office did not call them. They still have the moving truck and will not release it. The police was called but due to this being a private company, there is nothing further they can do. Any suggestions?
answered on Jan 11, 2023
Figure out who the defendant is, and how to serve them. Sue in General Sessions for either Action To Recover Property and/or Conversion. Might want a lawyer.
answered on Jan 1, 2023
Anytime you get arrested, it should be taken seriously. You should definitely get a competent defense attorney working on your behalf with the district attorney in this case.

This upset him and he entered her vehicle, physically removed her from her car, handcuffed her and took... Read more »

Maureen is charged with a serious Felony. She needs to hire a competent attorney now. It appears that she knows nothing about her rights and now the DA is after her. More than likely her suit lacked any merit, and definitely was not a counterclaim. This could get much worse and has been made... Read more »

There is no counterclaim to a criminal charge. If the criminal charge was dismissed, you might have had a civil rights action for an illegal arrest. But from the facts given, it does not look like that was the case. You will need to hire an attorney.
I was not on parole/probation; I received my rights back in June of 2020; I’m being charged with a class b felony or a c right now; I’m hoping it can be mended down to a class e which carries 1-6 yrs @30%.

That would be a very large reduction in the criminal charge. Hire a competent TN attorney to represent you.

You can try to contact a Magistrate yourself by going through the General Sessions Court Clerk, but you probably do not have sufficient information. You can also complain to the Knox County District Attorney General, who might arrange for you and the LEO to swear out a Warrant. Hopefully you at... Read more »
My dad's car was taken for driving on revoked from a 2nd DUI he got in 2007, they never charged him & the police drove off in his car, is that legal??
answered on Sep 29, 2022
If no charge was made by the LEO's, and no Forfeiture Warrant was issued, then it is an unlawful taking. But did Dad own the vehicle? I suspect more occurred here than what facts are stated. Driving on Revoked TNDL may be a charge in the making, which can take 1 year to initiate. The owner... Read more »

Yes...You are on Probation so you have to abide by the Probation terms. Any violation can mean you could be incarcerated for the remainder of the Sentence. There should be some kind of Probation Order in your file at Court. Read it.

There should be an inventory in the Return on the Search Warrant. It is very possible there will be a Forfeiture Warrant issued against any proceeds from illegal activities.
She admitted to it in child support court and the judge said it was a federal offense..

I would consult with a federal attorney.
answered on May 9, 2022
He can if you allow him in. My recommendation is to ask what he wants, and then not say anything except you cannot come in without a Search Warrant. If he has an Arrest Warrant or Capias for you, then he will arrest you.
