Q: I got caught doing the dirty with my girlfriend in a national park. He told us we could go. Can they still charge me?
Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Oct 8, 2019

Probably yes since most Statute of Limitations are 1 year or more from the incident to initiate the charges. The exact SOL depends on the charge.

Q: I have a car titled and registered in my name. Someone else has the bill of sale. Who legally owns the car?
Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Aug 28, 2019

You have not disclosed enough information. Is the seller the same person who transferred title? And where is the vehicle? Your title may be fraudulent, so you may wish to call DOS about its status. The bill of sale may not have been actually consummated, especially if you have the vehicle... Read more »

The landlord/owner can file a Detainer Warrant against you whether you signed a Lease or not. But it must be first filed, served or posted, and then the Court gives a Judgment for Possession.

Q: What if the information the department of safety gives you to reinstate your license in tn is innacurate ?

Dept of safety came up with 3 Past offences all dated in the 90s. The info is wrong. Like the phone number doesn't exist,the county is wrong,the ticket number isn't right. I've called around and tried to get it straightened out but no one can find the tickets the dmv have on their file.

Anthony M. Avery answered on Aug 12, 2019

You probably need to request an Administrative Hearing before a Department of Safety Hearing Officer. Hopefully it is not too late, and you will need an attorney.

Q: Can your health insurance license be revoked or suspended if you are fired from a company?
Anthony M. Avery

Just because of a job dismissal licenses are not revoked. But if someone makes a complaint to the Regulatory Board about the reasons for the firing, then the Board/Issuing Agency may act upon the Licensee for those reasons.

Q: I have a question concerning how to get money overseas.

Is there more than one way to get money to somebody from their bank, over seas who is not a citizen of that country? I was told that the only way they could do it was to go thru somebody else's account and that person had to send it to them from their account. I think its a scam, am I right?

You could be. It's probably best to stick with the mainstream methods through reputable banks. But no matter who handles it, the process is always susceptible to threat. Good luck

Q: If you are called and summoned to court but you never got paper work or signed anything for the summons.

It wasn’t your case can they arrest you. Or have a warrant for your arrest?

Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Jul 25, 2019

If it was a criminal manner, then an Arrest Warrant can issue which is executed by arrest, or an Indictment which is also executed by arrest. If it is a civil manner, either a Default Judgment against you can be entered, or if you are a witness, a possible contempt citation could occur.

Q: Can I move in with my 17 year old bf who is gonna be turning 18 next year in march and with his mom when I turn 18

His mom says she would take care of me

Paul E. Tennison
Paul E. Tennison answered on Jul 1, 2019

You should be able to legally. Once you turn 18, you are no longer a child under Tennessee law and may choose where you wish to live.

If you have a good relationship with your parents/guardians you should be careful in how you go about this to preserve that relationship if possible. Good luck.

Q: can my mom report the car "stolen" if my name is also on the car insurance?

My mom and I got into a petty argument and she threaten to call the police and report the car stolen if I take it, but I need it to go to work.

Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Jun 25, 2019

If she is the Owner, and you take it without her permission, that is Theft of Property, or at least a Joy Ride. The Insurance is irrelevant to ownership.

Short answer is yes. They may charge you. However, that does not mean that you wouldn't have a successful defense. If you are charged with a crime, consult with a criminal defense attorney asap.

As a Next Of Kin, you and the others can demand the return of the Security Deposit. If not paid over, then you can sue as the Next of Kin of the Decedent Tenant. You are not liable for his debts.

He may not be prohibited from having a firearm but cannot pass... Read more »

Q: If I refuse to go to court on a civil warrant what can happen after that ?
Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Sep 20, 2018

More than likely a Default Judgment for money will go down against you. The Judgment Creditor can then require you to go to Court to give sworn testimony where your money is, or go to jail for Contempt. Go to the Court Hearing.
