For months the bus driver has been allowing the kids to cross right in front of the bus. Yesterday the bus driver drove off right as my son was starting to cross and other kids were still in the street. My son is young and is now scared of crossing the street.
No, you can't. It is a common misconception that the person who reports something to the police is "pressing charges." That is now how it works. You may report the case, but one you do it is out of your hands. The government (the prosecutor) is always the one who brings the charges....Read more »

As Mr. Cramer has stated, you really need an attorney whether you qualify to have one appointed or whether you are able to retain private counsel. You can argue an affirmative defense, but that defense would be argued at trial and over 90% of criminal cases resolve before trial. Counsel will be...Read more »

He slapped the car window (open palm) to get my ex’s attention and asked him to listen to me. My ex then rolled the... Read more »
It is always a good idea to consult with an attorney. Disorderly conduct can be charged as an infraction or as a misdemeanor.

You need to contact an attorney to review and assist you in your case. You need an attorney. Do not speak to anyone about the case and consult with an attorney. Based of what you're saying there are likely many issues with the officers conduct, but until an attorney looks at all the police...Read more »
There isn’t anything you can do about the tow and impound fees. You need to contact an attorney who handles traffic cases to help you with the reckless driving. It’s a class b misdemeanor. They don’t seem like a big deal, but I’ve have clients tell me their insurance company dropped them...Read more »
I was released from prison in 2019. From my research, I can only qualify for SO Registry removal if my conviction was Misdemeanor Voyeurism and not Felony Voyeurism, however, since I'm on the registry I apparently don't qualify for a 402 reduction, and since I'm convicted of a felony... Read more »
I haven't reviewed the statute on the length of registration for your offense, but assuming it is a 10 year registration (10 year from the end of probation) you cannot get a 402 reduction while you're on the registry. There is no exception to this. So you have to be off the registry...Read more »

If this is a criminal charge against you, then it appears the Government is dismissing one or all charges against you. However Jeopardy probably does not apply, which means you might get charged later within the SOL. Talk to your attorney and stay out of trouble as you may be watched.
Assuming I'm understanding correctly with your relative ages, that you will turn 15 in October and your partner will turn 18 in November, the answer is yes. Right now, until you turn 15, consensual sexual activity between you and your partner would be considered unlawful adolescent sexual...Read more »
The plaintiff is the city/state that is prosecuting you. You would be the defendant. You can always represent yourself and contact the prosecutor to see if they will offer you a plea deal (a plea in abeyance is a type of plea deal).
There isn't enough information here. What is your question? You should contact an attorney directly for assistance. If you have been charged with a crime and cannot afford an attorney the court will appoint one for you.
