    Yes. Everyone needs their rights protected. This case is a tragedy, and I feel horrible for Trayvon Martin's family. But this is America where you are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    An answer to your question requires a whole lot more facts. How did the situation start? What was the motive? What was said during the episode? How bad were the injuries? What kind of evidence is there? What qualities do the witnesses have? The prosecution could charge attempted murder if they wanted to. But the charging decision is not evidence. That is only what the prosecutor thinks he or she can prove. With the right attorney, this could come back as a simple battery. In my last two...

    Generally, these are not the kind of words that law abiding citizens utter. And you can't yell "FIRE" in a crowded movie theater either, fyi. We need you know what context these words were spoken in. Did you have a gun in your hand? You give so little detail that any analysis would render nothing more than speculation. If you do have charges you should seek the help of an experienced criminal defense trial attorney. But use this site to evaluate the attorneys you choose to interview....

If circumstances have changed, you must bring it to the court's attention. If you lied you need a lawyer. You are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The likelihood of a positive outcome- exoneration or a mitigated sentence- is increased with the help of an experienced criminal litigator. Seek out an experienced criminal litigator for...

    I suspect you have posted several questions in the past day or so. This issue is obviously at the forefront of your mind. Earlier you disclosed you were a minor. At your age, you are not ready for the emotional consequences of having sex. Nor are you ready for the influence of a Svengali. I suspect you are infatuated with the man who broke the law. But consider this a: real man would wait for you to become an adult before putting you in such a vulnerable position. listen to your Mother.
