Also depends on which department arrested you. Some municipalities do not send to Nashville, but send to Knoxville. If you want to give me a call 423–2 67–6715, I will track it down for you as long as it is not the jurisdiction where I am the judge.
No such law in TN. There may be a DA who is willing to entertain this agreement, but no "law" like this. If you are looking at a conviction on a second, the minimum jail time IF you are convicted is 45 days, the last 28 days of which can be done at a treatment center.
Maybe the DA has made this "offer" to your attorney. That being said, if your attorney thinks this is a "law," you need to find someone who is experienced handling DUI cases. I suspect there has been a miscommunication...
Tenn. Code Ann. Â§ 39-17-1307(a)(1) states that "a person commits an offense who carries with the intent to go armed a firearm," a certain kind of knife or a club.
Will you get in trouble for purchasing? NO
Can you keep in the house (And use on intruders)? YES. Just make sure your response is "reasonable." If someone knocks on your door and you commence to whupping him with the walking stick--not reasonable. If he nreaks in your house and you have to break it over his head because...
Highly unlikely your boyfriend will be violated. Probably a miscommunication. I would advise your boyfriend to do his best to get on the good side of the probation officer. How? Ask the probation officer--What do I have to do to get on your good side and stay there?
They could file the charges, but it seems more like a civil mater. Even though the item has been stolen though, legally you are still responsible for it. So, violation of probation is unlikely.
But, if you don't call the police to report the item stolen, it looks like you are just keeping it and not paying for it.
Just remember, you can pretty much be sued by anyone at anytime for anything. Is it likely you will be sued?
The answer is a likely "NO." First, what has happened here pretty much sounds like a theft to me. If he took the bike before you agreed he could take it, then the buyer basically committed a crime.
As far as collecting what is owed--unlikely unless this person has assets sufficient to pay you. A claim would have to be filed against his estate and frankly, you are probably...
Depending on what she tells the police, yes a warrant for theft could issue against you. DO NOT assume that she will tell the police YOUR version of the facts. Unfortunately, police often do not get both sides of the story before arresting someone. I believe your best bet is to go see an attorney ASAP and have him or her send a letter to this person detaining exactly why you no longer have the furniture and letting this person know what will happen to them should false charges be brought...
You need to sit down and have a talk with your attorney. Do it now and do not wait. Very often, such suspicions are unfounded and more related to a lack of information rather than anything else. Only AFTER you have this conversation should you seek the advice of another attorney.
