Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer Your question doesn't provide enough detail to answer. If you are wanting the status of a case you are involved with you may contact the attorney representing you or the courts. Many courts allow online access to see the status of your case.
Kiele Linroth Pace's answer Maybe, but your focus should not be on Criminal Defense attorneys. Instead, you should consult with an attorney in your area that takes federal Section 1983 civil rights cases. A civil rights attorney will be in a better position to evaluate whether or not your circumstances are serious enough to overcome sovereign immunity.
For more information, research the federal law named: 42 U.S. Code, Section 1983
Kiele Linroth Pace's answer If you have been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence then it is a violation of federal law for you to possess firearms or ammunition. US Code Title 18 Section 922(g)(9)
It is also a federal crime for a person to sell you a firearm (or even gift it to you) if they have reason to believe you have been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. US Code Title 18 Section 922(d)(9)
This law was passed in 1996 and its Constitutionality has...
Kiele Linroth Pace's answer There are situations in which a defendant can object to a visiting judge, but most such objections must be made at the time rather than after the fact. This is a discussion that should happen privately with the criminal defense attorney that handled the case or an attorney in the same jurisdiction that handles criminal appeals. There are extremely short time limits for filing appeal so you can't wait to decide how to handle it.
Grant St Julian III's answer If you were convicted, you have no basis for a civil suit for false imprisonment. The conviction must be overturned first. Contact an attorney who deals with post judgment relief.
Timur Akpinar's answer Lawsuits are often won or lost on opinions, despite the fact that it can result in outcomes that are not always fair. The coach could present these facts to a Texas employment attorney to discuss if he has legal remedies worth pursuing.
Roy Lee Warren's answer The state must only have you in the correct county, the particular court is not fatal to the state's indictment if it has you in district court for a felony or county court for a misdemeanor (filed by information, not indictment). Also the statute of limitations for many felonies is 3 years so your within that time as well. Sorry.
Perhaps before working on this project you can refine your grammar skills. This is not a text message. It is inappropriate to use abbreviations like it would be inappropriate to use abbreviations in your essay.
Capitals also help. Proofing your writing is mandatory to ensure you have complete sentences. "I would detailed examples" is not proper because there is no verb, although I can figure out what you meant.
Roy Lee Warren's answer Well three days will probably not get you there as for damages. Section 1984 of the Civil Rights Act prohibits deprivation of rights under color of law but yo must prove damages. Sorry but I doubt you would have sufficient damages.
Herman Martinez's answer Possession of marijuana is still illegal in Texas. I would recommend talking to the 17 year old about drug use before contact any government agency regarding the “adult.” Additionally, you could talk to the “adult” about the illegality of possession of marijuana or potentially worse crimes that could arise.
Please take note that a 17 year old in Texas is considered to be an adult in many circumstances.
Grant St Julian III's answer Talk with the attorney representing you on your criminal case, but what exactly were the circumstances you are objecting to? Do you believe your case has been prejudiced by what occurred? Good luck.
Kiele Linroth Pace's answer Your friend should hire a local Family Law attorney for help dealing with this child custody matter. They should get a court-ordered visitation schedule so it is clear who should be caring for the child and when.
Gary Kollin's answer While I do not not know the statute of limitations in Texas (or the jurisdiction where the event occurred), I have no doubt over 50 years later the statute of limitations has expired/
