    You violated the terms of the agreement and stole her property, other than that which she specified, she can have you arrested and charged with grand larceny and she can sue you civilly. Get yourself a good lawyer.

    I was encouraged to plead guilty to a misdemeanor and promised it would not effect my becoming a nurse.. Ok, I am now a registered nurse, however no one will give me a job because my record says misdemeanor assault, which sounds horrible to say ...

    Ronald’s Answer

    There may be things that can be done but more information is needed regarding the underlying offense and who the attorney was. You should consult with an attorney regarding the avenue of seeking to make a motion to withdraw your plea and sentence, but there are only very narrow grounds to go forward on.

    Ronald’s Answer

    It sounds as if you have a SORA issue. If that is the case then there are things you can do but first you must do a little legwork in obtaining various documents. You will also need an attorney who is familiar with the SORA statutes and legal history.

  • If appeal is granted?

    My boyfriend has filed an late notice to appeal his criminal conviction 6 months ago but we have yet to hear from the appellate court. I have contacted his appeals attorney and he told me he was not sure why it was taking so long and he assured ...

    Ronald’s Answer

    None of the attorneys seem to have answered your question; a late notice of appeal is only a notice to the Court and District Attorney that you intend to appeal; to have an attorney assigned or to proceed as a poor person you have to make a poor person's motion to the appellate division which then, usually within two months, issues a decision either granting or denying the request. If he has an appellate attorney then the question really is has the appeal been perfected and he or she should know that.

    Ronald’s Answer

    You don't give enough information to give a reasonable answer. The max you can get is one year but that is not a usual sentence. You don't indicate who got the order of protection or why. Hire a good local attorney to aid you.

  • 18 year old

    Can an 18 year old boy be kicked out of the house? If he does leave, do the parents have to allow him back?

    Ronald’s Answer

    You give very little information such as why you were kicked out and what your parents said to you. Parents, in general, may be liable to provide until 21 but that is based on circumstances such as schooling. Good luck.

    Ronald’s Answer

    A misdemeanor weapons conviction does not mean you cannot own a weapon or be licensed, however, your other misdemeanor convictions might affect your ability. Have you applied for a license, that might be your first step. Additionally there may be an attorney in your area that specializes in this field. Good luck.
