  • My boyfriend got arrested for armed robbery and can prove he wasn't involved. Would having an attorney at his bail hearing help?

    His hearing is scheduled for 1:30 pm tomorrow. He is confident that he can prove his innocence and that he wasn't in the area at the time of the robbery through surveillance tapes. They arrested him with no evidence other than the cop saying that ...

    Anthony’s Answer

    YES!!!!!! Get him a lawyer asap. In fact his only chance at making bail is if he has a good criminal defense lawyer who can make his case for him. While the court ought to provide free counsel, having hired a great lawyer will help in a case like this. If he does it (or tries to) himself there is next to no chance of a judge not holding him. He needs an advocate Pronto. If you don't know of one, get on AVVO.com and look for one with a very high rating. Armed Robbery is very serious and should only be handled by someone with a great avvo score and a lot of experience handling violent crimes (Armed robbery is always considered a violent crime even if no one was injured). Good luck to you and him and his dad!!

  • Can I go after someone that scammed me out of Bitcoins on Craigslist?

    I was contacted from a potential buyer of Infinitecoin(IFC), a digital currency similar to Bitcoin. The transaction entailed 100Million IFC for 11.25 Bitcoin. The seller gave me her name and we exchanged over 100 emails regarding the transaction....

    Anthony’s Answer

    The Short answer to your direct question is yes you can sue her. You may even be able to report this as a crime (Contact the US Postal inspectors) but it is highly doubtful that you will ever locate the scammer. That doesn't mean you ought not try. Success in finding her is far more doubtful than success on the merits which is a whole other issue. Good luck,

    As long as you have a certified copy of the business record you should be able to use it to fight your ticket. I would think about speaking to a lawyer but you may not need to hire one to defend you given the proof you have. Good luck.

  • If you got indicted by the grand jury 10 years ago and were never arrested nor served with indictment is the indictment still

    My sister was indicted on welfare fraud 10 years ago but we never knew about it until someone said they saw her name in the paper 10 years ago so she was never arrested and never served with an indictment. So what is the statue of limitations on a...

    Anthony’s Answer

    In most cases the statute of limitations is tolled by the indictment. Hence if she was indicted before the statute of limitations expired then the indictment in and of itself is sufficient to stop the dismissal. If the information you received is correct then your sister is a fugitive. She needs to see a criminal defense attorney right away. (You do not have to hire a local lawyer as in Federal cases any federal criminal lawyer can usually appear in any federal jurisdiction by motion for this case only aka pro hac vice). Get a good lawyer for your sister and address this problem before she gets busted one day on her way to picking up her kids from school.

  • Is this child exploitation/pornography?

    My 2 year old daughter had a bad diaper and I asked her dad to send my a picture to compair with the night before. His judgement is not always reliable as you will soon see. He told me that she was with just him hanging out at his house. Well, she...

    Anthony’s Answer

    interesting question. It ought not be child porn unless there was an attempt to sexualize the child, but prosecutors have brought cases like this before and while I think it is very wrong to prosecute based on these facts, it is conceivable that it could be child porn. With that said, if it is, it doesn't matter who took the picture. If it is child pornography the photographer's relation to the child is unimportant. In fact since you asked for the picture, I think a prosecutor could actually prosecute you for soliciting the pornography. Further it is illegal to possess child pornography so if the picture is pornographic, your possession on your computer is a federal felony as is the father's sending it and depending how it was transferred to him, the original photographer is also at risk. I think I would go find a criminal defense lawyer who handles these kind of Internet sex crimes and discuss it further with them. I would be very careful about turning anyone in at this point until I had legal advice from a lawyer I retained to advise me.

    I tested negative for 2 years. I had an appeal overturned and was released from SHU for 45 days. Then was searched in my living quarters, Personal mail confinscated for 48 hrs with no explaination. Urine drug screened 3 times during that one month...

    Anthony’s Answer

    I am not sure why you are giving all the SHU info because it doesn't matter however while you can file suit it is highly unlikely you will win anything or even survive summary judgment. You may however want to look into other potential civil rights opportunities to recover for your treatment at the hands of your guards.

  • My business partner breached our contract. What should I do?

    My partner started two new corporations under similar names, has been lining up jobs with our customers, and talking to our workers about his business. We have a noncompete agreement. What can I do to stop him?

    Anthony’s Answer

    Sue him!! You have a non compete and you also may have other breaches (fiduciary duty etc) not to mention potential fraud claims. You should be able to get an injunction to stop him from stealing clients and workers and trade secrets. Run do not walk to find an attorney. You can be helped but you must act fast . It is hard to fix the problem once it has gone on for too long.

    Contact the Nassau Legal Aid Society in Hempstead NY as well as the Nassau 18b offices at the Nassau County bar and explain your problem to the secretaries there. I believe in Custody cases the parents are entitled to a free attorney. If not, you can contact both Touro or Hofstra Law school both have family law clinics. The Nassau bar also sponsors a reduced rate lawyer referral panel. Finally you may want to contact the Woman's Bar Association (state or local) they often have programs to help people in Family court.

  • NCIC Record Deleted?

    Hi there- I was granted a Petition of Factual Innocence (851.8). The CA DOJ sent me a notice saying my state records have been deleted and this sealing order was then sent to the FBI, in addition to any other agencies which have accessed my record...

    Anthony’s Answer

    The case is dismissed. The arrest while not resulting in a conviction still happened and probably is not eligible for sealing from everyone. OTOH most employers (Not the Government in most states which exempts itself) cannot ask if you have ever been arrested only if you have been convicted. If they ask about arrests you may have a civil rights case against them.
    As for your question as long as it relates to convictions you are safe to say no.
