It's hard to tell. A vehicle may be searched incident to a lawful arrest under certain circumstances. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arizona_v._Gant. The Miranda warnings are only required in the circumstance of custodial interrogation, i.e., a reasonable person would not have considered himself free to leave, and if the Miranda warnings are not given in that circumstance, it generally prevents the prosecution from introducing confessions obtained in that interrogation or other "fruit of the poisonous tree," i.e., evidence they obtained in reliance on what was said in the un-Mirandized interrogation. As to the hold on the bond, I have no idea, but maybe another lawyer answering questions here can address this subject.

It's highly doubtful that this is a matter in which you are being snookered or exploited. Loan servicers review escrows periodically. Think about it: the servicer is just collecting money from you which you owe to entities other than the lender (i.e., property taxes which go to the Town, insurance premiums which go to the company that wrote your homeowner's policy, etc.), and paying it to those other people, and those amounts change. If your property taxes go up, if your homeowner's insurance premium goes up, your loan servicer is not on the hook to pay that increased amount, you are, and if the balance of the amount they hold in escrow to pay that falls short, the servicer bills you for it. What you owe to other entities is not something that the servicer has any control over.

I was terminated after 3 years of employment ,the reason I was given was that I drink to much after hours, in that 3 years I never had any warnings verbal or written. I feel I was wrongly terminated. I don't want my job back I recently left the st...
I don't believe that Florida is among those states which prohibit employers from terminating employees for lawful conduct outside of work. The link below discusses this issue.
Sometimes an employee manual exists which employers and employers treat as a contract (an "implied in fact" contract) which commits the employer to a progressive course of discipline before firing an employee. This is the exception in this day and age because most employee manuals state that the manual is not a contract and that the employee can be fired for any lawful reason without warning.
If an employee's termination is simply unfair, but not unlawful, a claim alleging wrongful termination will be dismissed.See question
I am canadian and I have had my pardon granted for 5 years but the deadline for the 5 years is approaching and I want to start the renewal proceses and apply for the new pardon but I don't know where to start
You have listed your location as "Canada, Kentucky" but go on to indicate that you are a Canadian citizen seeking information about the law of Canada. I suspect you will not find it on Avvo as the volunteer lawyers who answer questions here are by and large licensed to practice law in the U.S. Perhaps another site serves the needs of Canadian citizens seeking information about the law of Canada. I would start by seeking out a lawyer who practices criminal defense law in the province in which you reside; even if he or she does not handle this set of issues, likely s/he will be able to refer you to someone who does.
Good luck.See question

I was pulled over in NY state for speeding on the highway and I didn't have my driver's license on me. I gave the officer my insurance card and the car registration, both with my name on them. He came back saying that he couldn't find my name in t...
Simple. Let's imagine that you don't pay the fine and instead decide to contest the ticket. You show up in court, and the officer does too. He identifies you under oath as the one whom he personally observed to be driving in excess of the speed limit, and without a driver's license on your person.

The vaccination was known to cause swelling in the head and face of dogs. My dog experienced fluid in the lungs from it and as a result passed away. He was an otherwise healthy dog prior to this incident. Neither the vet not the manufacturer of ...
My condolences for the loss of your puppy. Malpractice requires a breach of the standard of care which proximately causes damages. You do not indicate that you believe the vet breached the standard of care, only that your puppy had an adverse reaction and died. If the vet did not breach the standard of care, there was no veterinary malpractice.
I do not practice law in Pennsylvania, but in most jurisdictions recovery for the death of an animal is limited to the economic value of the animal, i.e., what the puppy cost to buy, or what it would cost to buy a new puppy of the same quality. The value of the companionship and affection provided by the animal are not part of the damages equation. Even if there were a viable theory of recovery against the manufacturer (there might be, there might not), the economics of litigating malpractice cases, which require expert testimony concerning the standard of care, its breach, causation, and damages) would likely preclude this from being a cost-effective case to litigate. I.e., it would cost more to litigate than you could reasonably expect to recover.

Even assuming, for purposes of argument, that you or your child had actionable claims, what are the damages? I.e., was your child seriously hurt? Litigation is expensive, and the purpose of the law is to make injured persons whole. Only serious harm proximately caused by another's breach of a legal duty is worth litigating. When you say "we have had several problems with out daycare facility," that is the kind of language used to describe annoyances and inconveniences, not the sort of grave harm which warrants civil litigation.
If you don't like your child's daycare facility and its employees, and you feel your child is not safe, find another facility which meets your needs.
