    There are different questions you have asked. One is "Can I represent myself." Your wife could represent herself, but unless you are an attorney, you cannot represent her. It is not a good idea for your wife to represent herself. You are more than likely not going to get a trial by jury with a traffic ticket of following too closely, but you could try. What the responding officer said is technically correct but it is totally understandable why you wouldnt want a vehicle to slam into yours with...

    Assuming the $100,000 check that came in the mail to you was legal, you may also want to contact the police.

    This is a very unfortunate incident. However, this is the type of matter for which pre-trial diversion was made. Sometimes, it is better to have pre-trial diversion than it is to go to trial and be acquitted or have them just drop the case. And the reason for this is expungement, which is much harder to get without pre-trial diversion. Expungement is not automatic, however. Should you enter into a pre-trial diversion agreement with the prosecutor, the wording will have something like "eligible...

    There really needs to be more information here. Is this his 3rd offense in 10 years or his 3rd offense lifetime, for example. Also, if it is in a municipal court, the prosecutor might want less jail time than a prosecutor in a state court (or superior).

    From what you have written above, the state would probably have a difficult time proving a driving under the influence case (DUI) against you. However, you could be charged with hit and run, criminal damage to property (if there was damage), reckless driving and/or other traffic citations. It is possible someone saw you and took down your tag number. If so, you may have a warrant for your arrest. It is also possible no one saw you. It is your decision whether or not to turn yourself in. If you...

    If you are still on probation, you will more than likely have a probation revocation hearing where the judge could revoke whatever you have left on your sentence. You will also be looking at much stiffer penalties for a second DUI and I suggest you contact a DUI attorney immediately.

    I would suggest calling the collection company yourself to find out if you can work out your own deal instead of relying on statements of your ex girlfriend in an email or message. If what she says is true and you did in fact pay half, and since you are on the lease, you would still be on the hook for the remainder. Assuming for the sake of argument, that the email constitutes reliance (I think you would have a hard time with this), your credit may still be affected by her lack of payment even...

  9. Childcare provider terminated 11 month old baby for crying and retained the 2 weeks deposit.Is it the right practise??

    The only other thing I would add otherthan what was said by the other attorneys above is that it seems the daycare provider could terminate without notice for "uncontrollable" behavior by stating the non-stop crying is such behavior. I realize that you are upset about the deposit/money. However, it may be a blessing in disguise that you found out your child is in a daycare where he or she cries all day with no relief and you can get him/her out of this place.

    I need some more information. However, if this is ore-trial, an emergency motion for bond could be done. If he has already been convicted, one could file a motion for modification of his sentence. Either way, it sounds like a very dangerous situation for him and could also expose the jail to liability if something went wrong with their failure to properly treat him medically.
