    She needs an attorney - the sooner the better, as some potential evidence may not be available for long.

    Yes, you should hire an attorney. A conviction may result in your driver's license being suspended. The fine is about $533.00.

  • How should I handle a MIP ticket and fake id ticket given to me by an ABC officer?

    I am a 20 year old freshman with no priors at Ole Miss. I was in a 21 and over bar with my friend sitting at a table watching a football game. I was approached by an ABC officer who asked me my age. I complied, told him my legitimate age and hande...

    Kevin’s Answer

    Yes, it is worth it to hire an attorney. I have no doubt what will happen if you appear alone on the arraignment date and plead guilty. With an attorney, however, there are a number of ways that this may be resolved in your favor.

  • Can I be charged with a felony for "manufacturing marijuana" without the evidence of a marijuana plant?

    In my room the narcotics team found a couple of grams of marijuana along with paraphernalia. I am confident that I will be charged with those two charges but here is where things get complicated. In my walk-in closet they found a small cooler that...

    Kevin’s Answer

    In short, yes. There are a number of felonies that may fit the circumstances you describe well enough to lead to an arrest. Whether there would be sufficient evidence to prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt is another question altogether. Certainly you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible so that he/she can evaluate all of the circumstances.

  • I just received a DUI refusal and speeding ticket is the state of MS. I need to know what us will cost and what will happen.

    I refused to blow, but did very well on the sobriety test. I was always told not to blow so i refused and was taken to jail. My jail bond is 900 and I don't know what it will cost for the refusal ticket if found guilty. Can you give me some detail...

    Kevin’s Answer

    The fine will vary depending on what agency arrested you - i.e. the Oxford Police, University Police or Highway Patrol. A refusal DUI simply means that in addition to potential criminal penalties if found guilty, you will also have your license administratively suspended for 90 days for refusing to submit to the breath test.

    Advice not to take the breath test is generally good advice, and your case is likely more easily defended because of your decision. My suggestion is that you hire an attorney, though I would suggest that you ask around and find someone recommended by your friends.

  • I need a real estate attorney

    We own ten houses where the mortgages are current, but the HOA fees are in default. The HOA is threatening to enter judgment and force foreclosure, so the bank/lender will be forced to pay these fees.

    Kevin’s Answer

    While the HOA may be able to make good on the threat, its options will depend on the particular covenants and powers granted the HOA. I suggest having an attorney review the issue immediately.

  • My sons 24 and his girlfriend is 17 and she's pregnant can her parents press statutory rape charges on him?

    My son is 24 and he's girlfriend is 17 and she just got pregnant with his baby! Can he get into any kind of legal trouble if her parents try to press charges on him?

    Kevin’s Answer

    First, I would suggest consulting an attorney so that they can evaluate the facts fully. To answer your question in part, I can tell you that generally the age of consent in Mississippi is 16. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, particularly in cases where one party is in a "position of authority" over the other, thus my recommendation that you consult counsel.
