My parents do not approve of my boyfriend and I dating. We have had sex and now we have a baby on the way. I am soon to be 17. Would it cause him to get time in jail? We both wanted this baby and nothing was forced.
Consensual sex with a 16 year-old is a criminal misdemeanor, but charging practices vary. He should consult a criminal defense lawyer who practices in the county where you reside and seek pre-charging representation. Best of luck to you both.See question
in Aug my car was stolen by a inmate who just walked out the front door of a corrections facility. He had my car for 2 weeks now its totaled. Do I have to accept what the insurance company offers....or can they just give me the money to get it fix...
Unfortunately, the government has no duty to protect you from a third party, and is generally not going to be held responsible for the wrongdoing of a third party. You should be able to have salvage value deducted from the book value insurance payment and keep the car, but unless you can collect restitution from the person who stole & totaled it, you'll probably need to pay the difference between that and the actual cost of repairing the vehicle yourself.See question

I recieved a retail theft charge in March 2014 I missed court and it eventually turned into a warrant. I paid it and got it over with. It is now holding me back from my career in health care. Please help.
If the charge was a criminal charge, and you were under 25 at the time you committed it, you may have been eligible for expunction if it had been ordered at the time of conviction. There is no easy way to get this done after the fact. If it was just a citation, it can't be expunged. Consult a lawyer about the specifics of your situation. Good luck.See question
What is the process?
There is no single magic process to get all of your unspecified charges reduced. If those charges include a drunk driving charge, such charges can't be amended or dismissed without a finding by the court that the proposed deal is consistent with the public interest in deterring intoxicated driving. Review your specific situation with a lawyer, and consider adjusting your expectations. Good luck.See question

A prosecutor can charge anything they think they can prove, including charges arising from an on-going course of criminal conduct or criminal scheme that arose in their jurisdiction. Get yourself a lawyer.See question

In Wi, the day you plead guilty or no contest to a third or subsequent OWI offense is the day you are sentenced, and you are taken directly to jail from the courtroom. You are not eligible for work release for the first 48 hours of that sentence, and you must have Ignition Interlock installed on every vehicle that has your name associated with the registration or title within 15 days of being sentenced, or you can lose your work release privileges. You are facing up to a year in jail, and you won't be eligible for an occupational license for at least 45 days after the court revokes your license, which could be for up to three years. You need a lawyer.See question
This week I was rear ended at a stop light by a driver going full speed (30-35mph). My car was declared a total loss, and I believe his was too (his insurance company just told me that it was "substantial damage", but his vehicle looked even worse...
You need to see a doctor about your unresolved pain before you settle, with or without a lawyer. Once you sign a release, you're done. If it turns out you need more treatment, you'll be out of luck. Don't settle your claim unless and until you are completely healed.See question
Brother gets lawyer,his lawyer states individuals insurance will pic up 2004 with liability car insurance. We paid towing, storage and got car towed from site. Do we let sited individual insurance take totaled car,lawyer of brother states we will ...
If I have this right, your brother was driving your car with permission when he was hit by an at fault driver, and your brother has hired a personal injury lawyer, who is offering to help resolve your property damage claim. While you do not have to accept that lawyer's assistance, the notion that you'll do better against an insurance company by yourself is probably incorrect. If you had full coverage insurance of your own, talk to your insurance company about your options. If you carried liability only, then this may turn out to be an expensive lesson in while full coverage insurance is a good idea. Good luck.See question

If your father succeeds in making himself unavailable or refuses to testify without getting held in contempt, the prosecutor will likely either try to have him declared unavailable and seek to admit, or cross-examine him with his prior statements. If you haven't explored an NGI defense, discuss it with your lawyer. Unfortunately, the WI legislature has eliminated voluntary intoxication as a defense.See question
