  • Loopholes in pimp laws, Michigan

    I have quite a few lady friends who work as escorts, and while they need no assistance in collection or protection, they could use a lot of help in negotiations as well as closing potential clientel. I just want to know how to legally negotiate do...

    Kyle’s Answer

    What you propose is illegal. It cannot be done in Michigan. There is no loophole or phrase one can utter to make prostitution legal.

    Any lawyer who knowingly advises you to commit a crime would be disciplined--possibly by disbarment.

    A jail cell and fines are in your future if you get involved with what you propose.

  • Just found out my spouse of 3 years had been attempting to pursue sexual relations with other men, can I sue him

    Married for three years, one child and one on the way MUST get divorced!

    Kyle’s Answer

    You should immediately and privately consult with a lawyer who practices in the area of family law. Do NOT post anything online or speak about this matter with anyone who is not your attorney--what you say or write can be used against you in court.

    Michigan law prevents people from suing for alienation of affection. MCL 600.2901(1). As such, you cannot sue the third-parties for trying to seduce your spouse. Although it is rarely--if ever--prosecuted in Michigan, adultery is a felony. MCL 750.30. If your spouse contracts a sexually transmitted disease and gives it to you, there may be liability there for your spouse.

    If you pursue a divorce, property distribution can be influenced by fault.

    You will not be able to bring closure to your situation via Avvo. Get a consultation with an attorney as soon as possible.

  • What happens at an informal hearing? I got a speeding ticket in Royal Oak, MI and I would like to know how to ask for no points.

    I got my speeding ticket in the city of Royal Oak, and the charge for that is $130 and 2 points on the driving record. It is my first offense and I am 19 years old. I've had my license for less than a year. It was a mistake and I was in a hurry fo...

    Kyle’s Answer

    You should privately consult with an attorney.

    Notwithstanding this, you can consider asking the cop at the informal hearing to agree to amend the charge to "impeding traffic." This carries a similar fine and court costs, but will not be abstracted onto your driving record (i.e., no points).

  • Any advice on helping someone close to you through an owi emotionally?

    My close friend started court recently for an owi. He has withdrawn a lot but has shared that he has been thinking a lot and how he wants to change the path of his future which is great to hear. I can tell he is very stressed and anxious and I don...

    Kyle’s Answer

    OWI punishments can be severe (i.e., driver's license suspension, jail, fines, probation, etc). You just need to tell your friend that he screwed up--as many people do--, but that there is light at the end of the tunnel. You should point out that he will have some hurdles to jump through (i.e., court-ordered alcohol treatment if convicted, driver's license restrictions, etc), but he can and will get through it.

    If he gives signs that he is contemplating suicide, contact the police immediately.

    You should privately consult with an attorney. Do not post anything online or talk about this matter with anyone who is not your attorney--what you say can be used against you in court.

    You need to take this matter very seriously, because child custody orders can be relatively difficult to modify once they are set in stone.

    Kyle’s Answer

    You should immediately call criminal defense attorneys to inquire about the appeal. If the notice of appeal is not timely filed, then the appeal as a matter of right is waived.

    Car tire blew out on freeway officer stated I drove pass exit and should have gotten off because of this he stated he was towing the vehicle upon search found kitchen knife and arrested me ... ect.

    Kyle’s Answer

    You need to immediately and privately consult with a lawyer who practices in the area of criminal defense. Do not post anything online about your case or talk about it with anyone, because what you write or say can be used against you in court. Making a "party admission"--Google it--is the easiest way for one to lose their case.

    I've litigated knife cases before and have challenged their constitutionality. A lot of the time cops will charge people with carrying knives--even mere pocket knives--if they can't stick any other charges on them.

    Your friends are victims of "revenge pornography." See http://cyberwarriorlawyer.blogspot.com/ for more information about this phenomenon.

    It is possible to get the content removed from the Internet, but you will want to speak with an attorney before you do anything because the girls are underage. The girls technically committed serious crimes by manufacturing and distributing child pornography even though they were the ones who were subjects of the images.

    It is important to address the problem swiftly, because content spreads through the Internet like wildfire--an image will be published on one website and another two will republish it and another four will republish it and so on.
