  • 16 and received and ACOD for UPM in NY

    I was basically in the wrong place at the wrong time and was issued a Desk Ticket for possession of pot. Went to court and received an ACOD and it is up now. So my question is Will this affect me from applying to the NYPD when I turn 21 (wh...

    Anthony’s Answer

    Generally, an ACOD returns you to the position you were in the minute before you were arrested. That said, the arrest is on record and while the case was dismissed, if applying for a job in law enforcement it is stupid to lie, they can get the records. If this is all you have it shouldn't cause you any problems when you apply.

    Now with the exception of a law enforcement application, employers are forbidden from asking about arrests. They can only ask about convictions and then only those that resulted in Misdemeanor or Felony records. IF a private employer asks that question you should seek out an employment or civil rights lawyer to sue them.

    Good luck and stay out of trouble!

  • If I am 20 years old and my girlfriend is 16, can I drive to Nevada to have sex with her?

    In Nevada, you only have to be 16 years old to consent.

    Anthony’s Answer

    If it is illegal in California then crossing state kinds makes it a federal crime (Mann Act ) even if it would otherwise be legal in Nevada In other words, DON'T DO IT!

  • How long does the grand jury have to present ur case wen out on bail

    Out on bail awaiting gj hearing

    Anthony’s Answer

    Assuming your case is waived to the grand jury or your attorney has not consented to any adjournments or requested one the govt has 180 days from arraignment to indict in NY state court. Federal court is somewhat different and a dismissal there for speedy trial does not end the case. It only ends if the Statute of limitations has run

  • I took out unsecured payday loans and I missed one payment and they are threatening to put me in jail for it. Can they do that?

    I received a call yesterday stating that I was going to be put in jail because the payday loan company thought i was not going to pay them back because i haven't returned their emails. I am scared and do not know what to do.

    Anthony’s Answer

    It is unlikely you will be jailed right now. It sounds like a civil matter you cannot be arrested unless they can prove fraud. You would be well served to contact an attorney as soon as possible.

  • My ex boyfriend wont give me back our son. no one has custody yet. he wont let me see him at all. is this legal?

    we were together for a year and 7 months. our baby is only 3 months old . i am his primary care giver

    Anthony’s Answer

    It is only legal until you go to family court, ask for both custody and support from your ex-boyfriend. If you determine he is better left with your ex, then you would apply for visitation. You will stand a better chance with a lawyer so hire one if you can.

    Good luck.

  • What is a fraudulent marriage

    legally married to your wife for one and half years and staying with her. can this be considered fraudulent marriage

    Anthony’s Answer

    ICE recently deported an American citizen, so anything they want to think is evidentially what they will do, however being married and living in the same marital abode speaks well of the chances that the marriage will not be fraudulent. Having a child together further forwards the argument. That said, you will still have to show the marriage is not a sham however, should they inquire. You ought to hire an immigration attorney to help you through this system. Even though you are being truthful, any wrong move could jeopardize the foreign spouse's status.

  • Is this allowed

    I am awear that after holding a criminal record i will have trouble entering the U.S via flight would there be anything unlawful if i was to fly to canada say and come through the border to the U.S

    Anthony’s Answer

    NO! If you are not allowed in through a port, sneaking in is not allowed. Why not seek counsel in the US to see if you can gain legal entrance even with your prior background. Depending on what you did and when, there have been exceptions made.

  • SEARCH AND SEIZE

    IF SOMEONE WHO DOESNT LIVES IN YOUR APARTMENT BUT IS OBSERVED GOING IN YOUR APARTMENT AND COMING BACK OUT WITH DRUGS TO SELL JUSTIFIES THAT DRUGS ARE BEING SOLD FROM YOUR APARTMENT OR THAT DRUGS ARE STORED IN YOUR APARTMENT WHEN PERSON COULD OF HA...

    Anthony’s Answer

    You left out a lot of facts that are important, but the most important is: did the search come as a result of a warrant, or by consent of the apartment tenant or even the Landlord. If the search was without consent or warrant, then you may have a civil rights complaint against the officer conducting the search as well as the city. OTOH you may also have a case against a landlord that gave consent or even against the person who was selling the drugs (it is unlikely however that they own anything worth suing over.)
    I would seek out a civil rights lawyer or at least a criminal lawyer who has done some civil rights related work.

    Good luck.

  • What is "under penalty of perjury"

    I went to mailbox 11pm, found a man trying to get into my automobile. I called 911 and took picture, ask for advice. I told Operator my situation, 'a man is about to enture my car, She said ‘sit tight, remain calm wait for the police to show up,’ ...

    Anthony’s Answer

    You have to be leaving something out.
    To answer your headline question "under the penalty of perjury" means you are swearing to the truthfulness of the statements you are making and that if you knowingly tell an untruth you can be prosecuted for perjury. A statement not made under the "penalty of Perjury" cannot open you up to prosecution.
    Get a good criminal trial attorney, you're gonna need one.
    Good luck
