    It sounds like when you say found "not liable" you are referring to the police report. Police officers who were not there to witness the collision cannot determine who is "liable." While the officer may give his or her opinion as to what they think caused or contributed to the collision, it doesn't really matter as they are often wrong and they did not witness anything. You should contact a lawyer to further discuss what you mean by the driver being found not liable and also discuss whether...

    The person who lied on the stand could potentially be charged for perjury-a class H felony in Wisconsin. Depending on the facts, the person could be charged with multiple felony counts based on testimony in the same proceeding. In State v. Canon, 622 NW 2d 270 - Wis: Supreme Court 2001, the defendant was charged with drunk driving. At trial he said he was not driving. The State later prosecuted him for lying about not driving/ perjury. He argued "issue preclusion," since he was already...

    Hire a lawyer. Most lawyers have knowledge of various other options that the d.a. might consider. Lawyers will also be able to spot potential defenses that you may not realize. Get a lawyer (public defender if you don't have money) sooner than later. It is easier to get a good offer early than it is to change a da's mind/ try to get them to contradict themself with a better offer later on in the case. Depending on your age, you will also want to consider expungment in any offer along with...

    1. Never heard of that. 2. If it was in municipal court it won't show up on ccap and is harder to find. Anything on CCAP is easy to find. Background checks are often based on fingerprints and if your prints are not on record that will help you. 3. Depends on what they ask. If they ask if you have ever been convicted of a crime, (and you don't have any criminal convictions) then you say no. A civil ordinance is not a crime.

  5. I was Adjudicated Delinquent for a felony, how do I get it expunged and my right to bears arms restored in Wisconsin?

    If you try to get it expunged, in addition to what Attorney Kenyon said (which is very helpful), you may want to contact the d.a. before filing the request. That way, you can explain your situation, military service etc. and answer any questions they might have. Also, if they object, they will probably tell you why, and then you will have an idea of what they are objecting to before you go to the hearing in court.

    The facts of what happened are what matters, (where was the bicyclist riding, who had the right of way etc.) The police officer's opinion does not matter. I represented a bicyclist who was cited by the police for getting hit from behind by a driver and the driver was not cited at all. The jury found the driver 80% at fault. Some states have special rules for bicyclists and special rules for children. I reccomend contacting someone in your state who is familiar with bicycle laws and bicycle...

    You did not mention who accused your boyfriend or what happened. There are many important facts missing. Was he arrested? Did he go to jail? What happened? Who are you considering suing and for what reason?

    You may be confusing a restraining order with a no-contact order as part of his bond. It is common for a judge or commissioner to order that a person charged with a crime cannot have contact with the alleged victim. If this is the case, you might not know of it unless you were in court when it was ordered. If there is a no contact order and you want to see him, his lawyer will have to request to modify his bond to allow you to see him. If there is any order that you are not to see him, you...
