  1. Are you liable for early termination charges on a cell phone contract if the salesperson lied to get you to sign it.

    I'm not quite sure what the lie is supposed to have been. It may or may not be true that the manufacturer for your old phone still makes batteries for the old phone, but in any case you could certainly get aftermarket batteries on the internet if nothing else. I have a hard time thinking a judge would back you up in getting you out of the contract without the early termination fee. Depends on the judge, probably.

    I agree with the other answers. If the police had actual or apparrent authority to enter the home, your goose is probably cooked. Hire an attorney ASAP if you have not already done so and have him/her research this point. I hold out little hope based on what you have posted.

    You've asked this question a dozen times or so now. Stop it please. There were some very good answers the first few times you tried. You do not even have new evidence according to what you are describing now. Hire an attorney for an initial consultation and he/she will spell it all out for you.

  4. I was charged with Owi 17 months ago, shouldn't this be dismissed for failure to prosecute? Does the clock run out for inaction?

    I believe the statute of limitations for this offense would be 3 years, so that is the test. Did they file the action within 3 years of the incident? You will want an attorney to argue that point if you have an argument to make and you will want an attorney to represent you on the OWI 1st if you aren't going to be able to argue that point, so hire an attorney ASAP.

    No. Even allowing everything you say is true for the sake of argument, your marriage is still valid.

    Someone is being accused (or was convicted) of driving with a prohibited alcohol concentration ("PAC"). The person's blood alcohol concentration ("BAC") was .13. Forf.u would mean unclassified forfeiture (meaning it doesn't follow the typical penalty classification for forfeitures.

    This question is WAY too fact-specific and important to your future for you to be asking for a quick free answer on here. If you guess wrong about what is required of you, you could have serious problems. On the other hand, you don't want to get hoodwinked into being on the registry if you don't need to. Hire an attorney to do the research and report back to you. Your agent in Iowa should be able to give you a straight answer about what needs to be done to transfer the probation to another...

    Everyone gets bad haircuts from time to time. It stinks, but I think you'd probably have your case dismissed without even being able to argue it as soon as the judge looks at it. Putting a dollar figure on such a loss is near-impossible. I'd suggest doing your best to focus on the rest of your life and never go there again and tell people how awful they were and take comfort knowing you might save one or more people from this person.

    Text messages are typically kept only 7-30 days by most cell phone carriers to the best of my knowledge. I don't know how long they keep tower use data. If you phone has information on it, that could be helpful to law enforcement. A person's eye-witness account of events is often given great weight but may be discounted for various reasons (i.e. bias).
