    What a stressful thing to have happen! How long ago did this incident take place? Was a CT scan performed after the incident? Is your son on target for reaching milestones based on his age and development? Is he failing to do anything you think he should have been able to do by now? All of these are questions which must be answered to determine if there has been any long-term harm from the blow to his head. As other attorneys have said, the most important thing is your son's health....

    If you were revoked for the balance on one case and the other case only has 7 days left, it is highly unlikely they will transport you and revoke for 7 days. That said, if the sentence with only 7 days left was entered under the First Offender Act, then it's a different story entirely. In such a case, it is very likely you will be transported and will have a probation violation filed against you because the available penalties would be far greater than 7 days and would include finding you...

    In order to proceed against the tenant she must be served. A special process server may be helpful in your situation. Beyond that, if her present whereabouts are unknown, you may be able to get permission from the court to have her served by publication. Once served, you will be able to ask the court for a judgement against her. Even if you obtain a judgment against her, you may not be able to collect it if she has listed you as a creditor in her BK and the debt is discharged in bankruptcy. In...

    It is my understanding that recent changes to European law regarding your "right to be forgotten" allow you to right to redact results on searches of your name . According to news reports, this right went into effect immediately upon the passage of the law and applies to all search engines. it may not affect the actual blog post, but it can affect someone's ability to find the blog post if they use a search engine to try to find it or search for general info about you. I strongly suggest...

    It is unclear from your question whether you drove or not. If your car was parked there all day and you merely napped in it after work and after having a few drinks but did not drive, it may be defensible. Whether you drove or not, you should consult with a local criminal defense attorney who can ask further questions and give you better insight than you can get via the internet.

    The easy answer is yes, you can still buy a gun once you are done with your first offender probation sentence. However, it's very important to remember that even possession of a gun while on first offender probation is a felony and can result in a probation revocation, resentencing and a finding of guilt, and A new charge of possession of a firearm by a first offender offender probationer. Such a charge carries heavy penalties and a mandatory five-year sentence if the felony for which you were...

    Of course you can plead not guilty. I would certainly ask if you qualify for a public defender. In any case, you may be elligible for a program which dismisses the charges against you, sometimes referred to PTI, pre trial intervention, wherein you may be asked to do community service or take a class in exchange for the case being dismissed. It would be best to try to resolve this in municipal court because even if you end up pleading guilty, it should only be a municipal code violation which is...

    Judge Lovett is a reasonable man and if he reinstated your first offender probation and your probation has expired, you may need to hire a local attorney to go back to Judge Lovett for help with a final disposition. If the PO holds all the cards, there is always a way to ensure government agents do their job correctly and disposition cannot be withheld. A petition for Mandamus may need to be filed.
