Your question is out of my area of practice, but I believe that if you enter a not guilty plea, bail will be set. If you don't pay the bail, you will likely be held until you do make bail. If you plead guilty or are found guilty at trial, it's possible that you would be sentenced to jail. You...Read more »
Most--if not all--intentional torts ARE criminal acts. Assaults, intentionally running a vehicle into another vehicle, stealing, fraud, and other intentional, wrongful acts are both crimes and torts.

If it isn't the state that got it that way, don't see why not. The law only deals with admissabiltiy of evidence that the state gained through improper activities. If a burglar gets documents and turns them over to the government--let's say a hacker gets emails--those emails can be used as evidence.

There is a female who Just turned 16 this past April and she is now messing with a 23 year old male. I have been looking up if anything could be done to protect this young female cause she does not know any better and can be persuaded to do a lot. Is there an age gap between the age of consent.
The young 16 yr old female hasn't been 16 long and this may have been going on before she was 16. Plus this young female is easy to be persuaded in just about anything. Their are so many concerned neighbors about her. This just is not right and very disgusting.
May have been? You need solid facts to report a crime, personal knowledge as in one or both of them admitting that a crime took place, or that they engaged in sexual intercourse when she was below the age of consent.
One time the cop weighed the pipe along with the marijuana, it was charged as a felony possession when the actual amount of the weed was only a misdemeanor. Sometimes the police are not so smart. Get counsel on this case if you have not already done so.
We have been dating for ten months. We are sexually active(16 is age of consent). My father is trying to put the 22 year old in jail. My mom knew about the relationship the whole time, but now that my father knows, she acts as if she had no clue just so he doesn't leave her; I understand where she... Read more »
