  • Can I be arrested for roommate's underage drinking? She is on the lease so I cannot ask her to leave and I can't move.

    I am not old enough to purchase alcohol and do not drink or bring alcohol into the apartment.

    Martin’s Answer

    You can be arrested for anything. The question is can they convict you of anything. You could be charged with some type of contributing to the delinquency of a minor if they can prove that you allowed the other person to drink somehow. Reality is probably not, but you never know when a newer officer has a chip on their shoulder and will arrest you anyway.

    sounds complicated. Try to work it out with them first, but if they won't help you, think about getting an attorney to sue them. Keep any receipts.

    You should hire a family law attorney to help you here. Both parents have rights, and you don't want to be committing crimes. So, get an attorney to draft up a parenting plan that lets you do what you want.

  • Can I claim an RV sale invalid and recover my down payment?

    I purchased an RV from a private party on August 7th 2015. In the Bill Of Sale there is a statement that if certain insurance conditions are not met the sale is then invalid. I have discovered certain undisclosed problems with the RV since the s...

    Martin’s Answer

    If there is a breach of the sale contract, then you should be able to. However, if it is not in the contract that you can recover that down payment, it may be a problem. Tricky contracts are why you should always have an attorney draft them first. That way you will hopefully face less problems in the future.

    Martin’s Answer

    I'm not surprised you passed when you had a gap in time. Some medication, and for sure mouthwash has ethanol (alcohol) in it. That can stay in your mouth for several minutes before it is absorbed by the body. If you blow right away after having that stuff in your mouth or system, it can register a result.
    Just be honest and thing about getting an attorney to help you out.

  • 7 years from date of conviction or 7 years from date I completed probation??

    On February 23rd, 2009, I received my final conviction for a gross misdemeanor theft charge. On the same date, I started my 2 year probation sentence, which I completed on February 23rd, 2011. I've been trying to a job at a company I would like to...

    Martin’s Answer

    It is always good to be honest in an employment application. Now, if it asks if you have been "convicted" in the past 7 years, then technically, it would be the date you changed your plea - that is the conviction. Completing your probation is not when you were convicted.
