    If this is something that you are seriously considering, I belive that you may need to speak with a psychologist. It is difficult for me to understand how someone that is 18 has similar interests to that of a 12 or 13 year old. If the interst is sexual, that is even more disturbing as it would indicate more serious issues. If this is a serious question, you need to speak with a Dr and not an attorney.

    He faces a lot of time on the parole violation. 10 to 15 years is actually an illegal sentence. He may have been paroled in ten, but I am sure that was not the actual sentence. Regardless, he can be sentenced to the maximum allowable for the crimes he was convicted. That exposes him to much more than the extra five years. Contact an attorney ASAP.

  3. One's offered sex during massage, declines, can he be arrested if he just wants a massage and doesn't want trouble with the law?

    Whether someone can be arrested and whether they can be convicted are two different things. The standard for getting convicted is much higher. I believe in reality you are asking whether you did anything illegal. No, you did not. That does not mean that the police would have believed that if they raided this joint and found it was more of a brothel than a massage parlor. However, I do not believe they would ever go through books and see everyone that has received a massage there, arrest...

    You need to speak to an attorney. This can be very serious. Do not take the advice of the officer. He may be telling you this because he has no evidence and wants a confession to something you may not have done. Feel free to call my office for a free consultation- (215) 735-5900

    I do not see any authority to do this and find it improper. However, I do not see any remedy in this case, unless evidence was seized from the house.

    I agree with my colleagues. I am uncertain about why you are asking this. The only person that he should convey the offer to is his client, your uncle. Failure to tell you is of no consequence. If he failed to convey it to your uncle, then there is an issue. Michael L. Doyle (215) 900-5565

    An expert can review it and determine whether there are issues with how the test was performed. Typically, the issues will be relevant when you are borderline--meaning just above .08, just above .10 or just above .16. Otherwise, it is unlikely to be an issue. There may be other issues, so be sure to speak with an attorney soon. Michael L. Doyle (215) 900-5565

    It is always best to listen to your attorney, and for that reason you should not be asking other people that are not as familiar with your case. It was my understanding that a 2nd offense came with 2 days mandatory in jail, which certainly beats the 90 days mandatory required for a 3rd. If you have received a third in the matter of 3 or 4 years, you may need to start making some changes.

    I am happy that everyone was alright. What you are looking at is a civil suit, as opposed to a criminal matter. The damages are based upon injuries. The lack of injuries will likely mean that the amount that you could recover would be very limited. Nevertheless, you may wish to contact a personal injury attorney. Headaches can be a sign of something more serious. It may take a few days before other things, such as neck pain, may set in.

    You definitely need an attorney. There are numerous things that you could be convicted for. These are serious charges that involve jail time. The burglary can involve many years of jail. You need to speak with counsel immediately. Michael L. Doyle (215) 735-5900
