breathing device on a vehicle. I'm disabled and don't have a car. I'm trying to get my license back so I can get to my doctor's appointments by borrowing my sister's car and not having to depend on her trying to get off work to take me . What can ...
Go back before the judge who sentenced you (or whoever has that position if the previous judge is retired) and request a waiver to get your license without the ignition interlock device. They will want some proof of your finances, but they are allowed to waive the interlock requirement for folks who cannot afford it.See question
Infection, swelling, had to get antibiotic shots, two doctor visits and ER visit. I went in three days later and the cat was still there roaming freely!
I'm sorry to hear about your injury. This would be a personal injury claim based on negligence on the part of the folks who own the cat. You should search for personal injury and "dog bite" (it's the same principle, but dog bites are more common) attorneys.See question
Does Theft by taking and theft by conversion over 1000 carry mandatory jail time?
No, many cases like that will be handled with just probation and no jail/prison time, but each case is different. It will depend on the circumstances of the case, your criminal history, and other factors. You are best off hiring a good local attorney who can perform an investigation into the case and negotiate on your behalf with the District Attorney.See question
The traffic issue was handled in municipal court, pre trial diversion offered, not kept. He spent 60 days in jail. Shows as a traffic ticket on his record. How would this impact the shoplifting. He is working now and recently started acting like a...
That prior traffic incident may or may not affect his ability to get into the diversion program for this offense. We would need more information on the exact nature of these new charges and exactly what happened and what the charges were on that prior incident to know for sure. As far as aggravating any potential sentence, a traffic incident will usually not be held against someone when evaluating sentencing options on a theft case, but again, we would need more information to give you a solid answer.
You should hire a good local lawyer who knows the players in the court system and had handled a lot of theft cases before.See question
Just to confirm it
No, it absolutely isn't. If you don't have a license, or if your license is suspended, do not drive a car.See question
I am charged with not wearing a flotation device on a boat. After filing a motion for discovery, prosecutor said he will enter the video as evidence, but he refuses to give me a copy unless I pay him money for it. I don't have the money he is aski...
Technically, in a misdemeanor case, you are only entitled to a copy of the accusation and a list of witnesses. The solicitor doesn't have to give you a copy of anything else, though usually they will anyway. It is unfortunately common for Solicitor's offices to charge for copies of videos, and it is usually a whole lot more than the cost of a blank DVD.
You should be able to go to the Solicitor's Office and watch the video for free. If they won't let you, then you can file a motion with the court to compel them to allow you to view the video prior to trial.See question
is there legal ground for 911 caller to assume a driver is under the influence in a parked car without seeing him drive...can you please answer both questions
A 911 caller can tell the operator whatever they want as long as it's not a lie. If they have some reason to think that someone is drunk while they are in a car (whether they are right or wrong), they can tell 911 about it. It would then be up to the responding officer to determine if a law was actually broken.
As for the elements of a DUI stop, there is first a suspicion of either some illegal act or need to investigate someone's welfare, then the establishment of probable cause to believe that someone has driven or been in actual physical control of a moving vehicle while under the influence, then the arrest.See question

Don't despair just yet. Since you were cooperative and don't have any history, you should be able to get this taken care of without having it haunt you the rest of your life. Take a look at my legal guide here for some more info on what to expect. http://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/what-is-diversion-and-why-do-i-want-itSee question
I have following questions: 1- Which lawyer deals with patty theft misdemeanor? 2- How much they charge? 3- What usually happened with this type of cases?
1- You will want to find a criminal defense attorney to handle this kind of case. Someone with lots of experience with theft cases would be best, and someone with a good rapport with prosecutors and police officers.
2. I don't think we can really give you any guidance on pricing on here due to AVVO rules. I would just encourage you to call around and get prices from several lawyers and comparison shop.
3. What would happen in a misdemeanor theft case depends on several factors including your own criminal history, the exact facts of the case, and the tendencies of the judge and prosecutor. Your best bet is to talk to a few lawyers and find someone who you can not only afford, but trust to do the best job possible representing you.
Best of luck to you.See question

No, not at all, no. That would be illegal in many ways (child molestation, incest...) and a terrible, terrible idea that would haunt both of you for the rest of your lives.See question
