    The charge of shoplifting over $200.00 worth of merchandise elevates the offense from a disorderly persons offense (which would be heard in the Municipal Court) to a 4th degree crime (which would be heard in the Superior Court). However, the mere fact that that the amount in question technically makes your offense a 4th degree crime, does not necessarily mean that the State will want to proceed with such a serious charge. In all likelihood, the County Prosecutor will take into consideration...

    Your options as simple: You can either settle with the collector, or wait for the collector to file suit against you, and then defend the lawsuit. You have no reason to sue the other party unless you incurred damages or injuries as a result of the other woman's fault.

    You can call yourself anything you want; however, your legal name will remain Samantha unless you take formal action to change it. If you are just having fun, and want your friends to call you Rachel, I think you will be fine as long as you remember to use your legal name at the appropriate times. Many people use nicknames, e.g. William/Bill, John/Jack and Richard/Dick. Alternatively,if you are serious about changing your name to Rachel, I suggest that you do it legally. Name changes are...

    No, this is not a valid reason to deny a public defender. The variables which should be considered by the Court are: (1) the seriousness of the of the offense, i.e. is it one that, if your son is convicted, will face the possibility of significant fines, suspension of driver's license or jail; and (2) the ability to pay.

    You are looking at this all wrong. I hope you will agree that your mother's expenses of living in the home are increased by virtue of the fact that you live there, too. It could easily be argued that if you did not reside in the home, your mother could be residing in a smaller less expensive home or apartment and that her grocery bills would be much less. I am sure you don't expect your mother to maintain a separate cupboard or refrigerator for especially for you; nevertheless, the monthly...

  6. Bail money , when can i take it ??

    Your bail will not be returned until the final conclusion of your case. If you ultimately enter a plea of guilty to any offense, the finance unit will begin the process immediately following your sentencing. A check will be sent approximately two weeks after sentencing.

    I think you may have an uphill battle. At the time you entered your plea, the judge probably asked you several questions, including whether you understood your rights, and if you were pleading guilty voluntarily. In New Jersey, you were probably also asked as to provide factual basis for your plea. The discovery fees are a nominal portion of the overall counsel fees, (perhaps $25.00 - 50.00), so I'm sure that the reason your lawyer's fees were so high had little to do with the cost of...

    You should contact your attorney in Georgia to let him/her know what is going on. If you do not already have an attorney in Georgia (or if your were dissatisfied with your last one) you should retain one immediately. I know you are probably considering ignoring the request to return to Georgia to respond to your violation of probation; however, if you do so, a warrant will be issued for your arrest, and when you are ultimately arrested on that warrant, it will be all that more difficult to...

  9. Injured in a car insured by a family member, can I get my medical bills paid through this

    Yes, you can get your medical bills paid. This is known as Personal Injury Protection (PIP). You would be subject to a deductible and co-payment up to certain amount, after which the insurance company would pay 100%. The issue here is whose PIP coverage applies. If you own a car, your own car insurance would be responsible for your PIP, even if the accident occurred while you were in someone else's car. If you do not own a car, then other factors would be considered in determining whose...
