My 16 daughter is dating a 19 year old guy, but they have been dating since he was a senior in high school & she was a freshman. He is now in South Carolina in the military and is being told by other people that he could go to jail and must follo...
Assuming by "date" you are being polite and mean "having sexual intercourse" since there is are no laws I am aware of in any state that prevent non-sexual relationships. You state current ages (16 and 19) but shifted to school grades ages unknown) when you referenced the beginning of the "relationship". Later you hinted that it began when she was 14ish.....suggesting to me that you are aware of your state laws regarding consent to engage in sex, and you're hedging the story a bit to avoid what you know might be a criminal act (could be I have just become jaded).....that said,
Your question is about federal law and the military member. There is a federal law (PROTECT ACT of 2001) which would require both parties engaging in sexual activity to be 18 years old. The act is most frequently used against and was crafted to impact individuals traveling to other countries to have sex with minors (i.e. sex trade victims in Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam etc.). The PROTECT Act could technically be used against an individual traveling from state to state to have sex with a minor. I have never heard of it so applied, but I suppose the case could be made.See question
If the case is dismissed and sealed and the federal government do the background check are they gonna see the charges even it sealed already?
Military or security clearance. Yes. Sealed or not.
Another way to read your question is: can I get away with lying about my past? Answer: bad plan. Eventually the government will catch up--they grind slow, but fine.See question
Id like to walk up to a cop and discuss when and when its not ok to display a weapon in defense of oneself in your own car but in a public place when you feel threatened still within ones extended domisile (you car as the person is standing at you...
Sounds like what you really want to to draw police attention to your self. Not a smart plan.
Why don't you do a little research into your states gun laws, then go to a location police station and see if they have any gun safety/gun law classes or information sessions they run. Discuss the matter in an acedemic envrionment.
Walking up to a cop, on duty, in the matter you described, has potential to go south on you.See question
I've been charged with felony theft. I plan on hiring an attorney next week. I want to ask all the lawyers out there in the state of VA. I know I've been charged with breaking the law obviously ... but does it help that I'm young (21 years old), f...
Honest mistake? FYI, if the prosecutor proves the elements of the charges against you, the honest mistake defense will get you nothing because that will prove your act was not a mistake and that you were being dishonest.
Get an attorney, BTW, why are you waiting until next week? Stay off-line with any further statements about your case because anything you print here can be used against you.See question
I was 18 and convicted of several felony charges in 3 different counties back in 2004. I ended up serving a total of 2 years, successfully completed 1 year of probation and long ago paid all my fines and restitution in full. I was released in Dece...
I'm sure you already know Virginia does not expunge for convictions. Ever. At least under the current laws. You can seek a pardon from the governor, and living a model life since then is certainly grounds for an appeal to be considered. The current governor has approved more restoration of rights convicted felon than any previous Virginia governor of Virginia. If you ever had a good opportunity to get a pardon, this would be it, and now would be the time.See question

In 2014, I went to a South Florida/Treasure Coast Hospital with a tooth ache. Upon being discharged I was said to have unbalanced walk and being argumentative with staff so the Police Officer working the desk asked me to leave which I did. I came ...
Doesn't sound like you have much of a case.See question
I'm trying to avoid a theft conviction on my record. Are there any alternative charges that prosecutors will agree to ... to avoid a "theft" conviction?
Why would the prosecutors want to make a deal with you? If you're the question asker who has already given them a written confession and they have video tape of you there is no reason for the prosecutor to make a deal unless they're working with your attorney.See question
I unfortunately admitted guilt to a detective and wrote a written statement (which I assume will be used against me) and they have video footage of me of where the incident occurred. Does anything else need to be proven or am I totally screwed now...
You dug yourself into a deep hole to be sure. You're smart to have an attorney as that may be the only way you're going to get out of this.See question

Unfortunately, solicitations for attorneys are not allowed on the site. You will have to find an attorney by using Google, or any other search engine, or the find a lawyer tab at the top of this page, or by calling the Roanoke bar association or the Virginia Bar Association to request a referral.
As you may know, and and "at will" employment state, and employee may be fired for any reason at all, or no reason at all, so long as there are no union protections, no written employment contract (rare), and the termination is not an illegal termination against a protected class of persons. that all boils down to, the employee a sensually works at the whim of the employer, so you can imagine where in employer needs no reason to fire somebody, where there is a "past history" you're even in a more precarious position. nothing you posted here indicates discrimination, but perhaps you left those details out for good reason and that would be the basis for having a discussion with a Roanoke area employment attorney. Good luck to you.See question
