If the age of consent in NY is 17, but the age of consent in another state is 16, which applies? What if it is over Skype, of ChatRoullete etc? Thank you
Cyber-sex is not sex and the age of consent is not the issue. In fact in NY at least a 18 year old and 15 year old can have sex and it isn't a sustainable crime, but if the 18 year old has cyber sex with the 15 year old, he is guilty of both Federal and state crimes in both her state and yours. Again if they aren't at least 18, stay far away.See question
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...
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!See question
In Nevada, you only have to be 16 years old to consent.
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!See question
Out on bail awaiting gj hearing
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 runSee question
i am a us citizen i am maried to a non us citizien does my maraige count in us
Your question is rather vague with few facts however in general whether you married a US citizen or not without fraud and assuming a contract yes you are married until legally divorced.See question
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.
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.See question
we were together for a year and 7 months. our baby is only 3 months old . i am his primary care giver
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.See question
legally married to your wife for one and half years and staying with her. can this be considered fraudulent marriage
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.See question
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
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.See question

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.See question
