    First, do not write on the internet statements that could later be used against you. Second, these are serious felony charges and there is no straight answer to your question. What will happen will depend on the unique facts and circumstances of your case, and your grades and lack of prior records is something the Court will consider at a potential sentencing. Contact me so that I can get a few more details from your case and I may be able to give you a better answer.

    If you were issued a ticket, then it should have the date and time on it. If by some chance you are being charged by complaint (rare in a misdemeanor case) then the complaint should give you a date and time to appear. At the hearing, before your case is called, you, and everyone in the courtroom, will be informed of your constitutional rights. I'd recommend you not show up alone for this hearing - and if you get a lawyer he or she can "appear" in your behalf for this hearing so you don't have...

  3. My ex--wife has a vehicle that is suppose to be out of my name

    Do the terms of your divorce indicate how long she has before she refinances? If so, and she has not complied with them then you can bring a contempt action to enforce the Court order. Otherwise you can contact the vehicle's lien holder and see if they can work with you on removing your name. Unfortunately, they do not have to, and often time do not.

  4. Can the parents of a juv. be charged with child endangerment if they knowingly allowed a situation to happen?

    Only the prosecuting authority ultimately can make the decision on whether to charge someone or not. If you believe that at the time of the charging and conviction of the juvenile the prosecuting authority did not have all the facts that you have now, I would suggest you discuss this new information with the office or the attorney who prosecuted the juvenile and see what their opinion is.

  5. I am wondering about getting my criminal record expunged in Minnesota.

    First, I am assuming that when you say you have a felony "charge" that means that it is a conviction. If that is an incorrect assumption, and they are in fact just charges and you were never convicted they are easier to expunge. Second, to expunge your Minnesota record, you would need to disclose on your petition the Illinois convictions as well. If you don't and they find out anyway, it is not going to be good. It helps if these convictions are not recent. What you are asking the Court to do...

  6. Can I be charged with driving after cancellation, if the actual driver was gone getting assistance due to car broken down.

    It sounds like you have already been charged. Depending on the specific facts of your case, bringing the driver may be sufficient in having the prosecution dismiss the charges or the judge/jury finding you not guilty. Remember that more than likely you will have more than one court date, and you have to be careful what you say before the trial as it can and will be used against you at trial.

  7. I get $400 for 2 kids in child support, the father is in the army just wondering if it would be worth going to court to get more

    Assuming the previous order was set by a Minnesota Court, in order to be able to modify it you would need to show the Court that the new order would result in a 20% increase or about $480.00 in your case. Also, keep in mind that the Minnesota child support laws were changed drastically a couple of years back and now they take in consideration the income of both parents, as opposed to just the obligor. You can try to see what they amount of child support should be on this website from the...

  8. What can or should i do?

    Any damages made to the townhome beyond normal wear and tear would be your responsibility. And if the cost to repair the damages exceeds the security deposit, then you'd be responsible for the difference as long as the repair costs were reasonable. Depending on the amount that is being asked of you, the landlord may file an action in small claims court. If that happens you should be prepared to challenge the costs to fix the damages if they appear to be unreasonable.

    As long as she was over 16 and you were not in a position of authority over her, then it is not illegal.

  10. X3120 Crm Agnst Admn

    I don't know what the X3120 stands for, but Crm Agnst Admn stands for Crimes Against the Administration of Justice. Some of them are Perjury, Fleeing, Tampering with Witness, Providing False Name, Falsely Reporting a Crime etc. It seems to be missing the statute number. They fall between 609.48 to 609.515.
