  • I WANT TO FIND THE PERSON HO MOLESTED ME 40 YEARS AGO TO MAKE SURE HE IS NOT STILL DOING IT. DO I ANY LEGAL RIGHTS HERE?

    It happened when we were stationed in Germany. When I turned 12 years old I finally got the nerve up and told my parents.He molested myself, another girl and even his own children. There were others that chose not to come forward. He was dishonor...

    Based on the circumstances outlined in your inquiry, it would appear that the time lapse, together with the fact that you most likely have little or no actual evidence, would make it extremely difficult if not impossible to take any legal action at this time.

  • If a son puts his hands on his mother, what steps do u need to take to get him arrested?

    Someone put his hands on his mother but no one wants to call the police to put him in jail. It doesn't sit well with me at all and I'd like to take the matter into my own hands to get him arrested for what he did.

    Scot’s Answer

    Your question is pretty vague, as already noted - without more specifics as to the alleged incident and depending on your involvement or witnessing the alleged event, there does not seem to be much you can do from a legal perspective. If you vehemently feel the woman in question was assaulted, a call to the police would be your first step.

  • Do I have standing to sue someone who lied in court resulting in my brother's conviction for rape? The conviction was reversed

    The perjurer now resides in Florida in a mansion provided by her MD husband's alimony. My brother sued, but the court ruled that you can't sue someone for giving false testimony (really?) As he remains in prison for a second conviction entirely c...

    Scot’s Answer

    Based on the question, I'm afraid you do not have a case for legal recourse, as you were not a party in the lawsuit, not can you sue someone for giving alleged false testimony. I wish you good luck in your cause.

  • A bartender I know wasassaulted by a customer at work. The assaulter was copulating in the restroom, and was getting kicked out.

    The barkeep was trying to get her license plate number and she was hitagain. can the bartender sue her job or is she just out of luck since the assaulter got away?

    Scot’s Answer

    The bartender most assuredly has a worker's compensation claim, and as mentioned the sooner you contact the establishment's workers comp insurance carrier the better - should not matter if the at-fault party got away. If you were a witness, be sure to describe the incident in every detail.

  • What IS the deadline in Florida for getting an insurance company to pay the settlements to myself and the other driver?

    I have full coverage, $10,000 PIP, medical for both parties. Insurance personnel contact me about different details and ask questions and send me documents that I'm supposed to download, and sign electronically, one of the adjusters was kind enoug...

    Scot’s Answer

    Based on what I gather from your info, the "deadline" would be 4 years. But as stated, you should refrain from further communication with the insurance adjuster, and consult a personal injury lawyer who will know how to deal with everything. Sounds like you may be rushing things a bit, and it may cost you money.

    My case has been under review by one expert for about 2-3 months, I recieved a message saying that they sent my medical records to a second expert for review and should hear somthing back in a few weeks.

    Scot’s Answer

    I would think it is not good or bad. The lawyer must like the case and may need addition info from another source to make a final decision.

  • If i am a witness/victim in a case that is high profile can i protect myself from being shown testifying on the news and paper?

    can I ask to not be seen?

    Scot’s Answer

    Is some intances yes, in most NO. However, most judges will listen to victims in cases where they do not want their images on the news or in the paper. Specially if there is some kind of violence or sexual nature to the charges. Its up to the judge what he lets go on in his or her courtroom. Howeever, once he you are outside in public, there is not alot you can do!

    You would need more facts to be certian, but law enforcemt usually does not stop at gates when they are looking for somone. A locked door should stop them, but not a gate as long as they did not just walk into your home.

  • Why can undercover policemen target drug addicts, give them money to buy drugs and charge them selling and posession?

    The State is trying to convict as a habitual felony offender when the person has served probation and these cases have been closed. The offender is a crack addict and needs help but the State is only interested in a conviction.

    Scot’s Answer

    They do it bc they can. Slo they know that the lowly drug addict will flip on the dealer in front of them or the buyers behind them bc they have to get out of joil quick to get their next fix. Its battle of the weak against the strong...most frug dealers that really do it for a living do not use that drug for recreational use. They make the money and know to keep their mouth shut, so the addict are perfect patsies to run a scam on. Way of the world...unfortunatly.
