  • Once completed on 10 years of registering as sx offender. Do I really need to register in another state again?

    Sexaul misconduct

    Adam’s Answer

    Your question does not give enough information for an accurate answer to be given. Typically, though, the best course of action would be to talk to an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can advise you as to your obligations. It is very important to get this right so that you do not run the risk of being charged with Failure to Register, which is usually a Class D Felony in Indiana.

    If the case is in Steuben County, there is a good chance they will offer you a misdemeanor. You should contact an attorney who is experienced in criminal defense in Steuben County. Feel free to call me to schedule an appointment.

    Adam’s Answer

    One can be required to serve a jail sentence for violating the house arrest terms (whether through a Community Corrections program or as part of probation). The prosecutor can also, in some circumstances, file a criminal charge in addition. You should speak with a knowledgeable attorney to help determine what is happening.

  • I was orderedby a judge to pay on a debbt with my tax return and i want to file for bankrupty with it can he send me to jail

    i just want to make sure the judge wont send me to jail for not using my tax return to pay my debt before i use it to file for bankrupty

    Adam’s Answer

    It depends on what the debt is. If the debt is dischargeable, you have a much better chance of being able to avoid paying it. You should definitely talk to a bankruptcy lawyer. However, if the debt is part of a family law case, you should make sure that the bankruptcy lawyer is experienced in family law as well.

  • Will a person get into trouble if they haven't paid child support if the child is now 21

    after 17 years they are now taking child support out of the social security disability check and the child is 21 years old

    Adam’s Answer

    Your question doesn't give as much information as I'd like. At age 19, a child is typically emancipated so I will assume that there is no ongoing obligation. Even if that is the case, a court still has the power to enforce its orders.

    In other words, if there is an arrearage, the court can still punish the parent if they fail to pay on the past-due amount. I strongly recommend you contact an attorney to advise you more fully as you could potentially be looking at jail time. Good luck.

  • Do I have the right to watch the Police officer's dash cam of my case.

    well the Officer that cuffed me wasn't the officer that arrested me. also i was outta my vehicle and then a pull over was intiated. They calm they activated their emergency lights before hand i would like to watch the dash cam to see if that is true.

    Adam’s Answer

    If there was a dashboard camera, your attorney will be able to get the recording. The agencies in your area do not all have those cameras. They like to be able to say what they want without an independent record of it. I practice criminal defense in your area, so feel free to contact my office to make an appointment to discuss representation.

    Adam’s Answer

    Generally, you do not have to answer the door unless they have a warrant. There are exceptions, some of which are (1) they believe that someone inside is in danger or (2) they are in hot pursuit of an individual.

  • What right do officers have to take my phone?

    I was arrested on probable cause, and during the arrest an officer confiscated my phone. At some point officers entered my house with one of my friends who did not reside with me, and confiscated a second phone that was laying on my couch that did...

    Adam’s Answer

    You don't give enough information for an accurate answer. They could legally confiscate the phone if it contains evidence of the commission of a crime. Without knowing why they arrested you and what they were investigating, I can't say whether they were within their rights.

    I recommend you talk to a local attorney who is competent in criminal defense to advise you of your rights and the best course of action going forward.

  • DUI help for first time offender in Indiana

    Hi I have been booked under DUI with BAC 1.2.This is my first offense.I did not cause any accident or damage to anyone just took a turn without signal and passed all the test(I asked the cop who arrested me about how I did with the test) other ...

    Adam’s Answer

    You should hire an attorney. DUI is typically a criminal charge of a Class A or Class C misdemeanor in Indiana, unless it is enhanced for some reason. The A misdemeanor means that you can get up to a year in jail. If convicted, you will probably have probation as part of your sentence where you will need to get an alcohol evaluation and follow up with counseling. Good luck.
