I suffer from coronary artery disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and an enlarged heart. While in custody I began to have chest pains from all the stress so I requested to go to the hospital and as soon as the EMTs showed up and examined me and ...
Did you get charged with possession? Is the planted contraband in evidence? It sounds like they called emt when you asked for medical help so probably do not have a denial of medical claim under the 14th amendment. Maybe a false arrest and malicious prosecution claim, but planted drugs is hard to convince a jury to believe. First question, why are they framing you?See question
Meet all requirements. State attached a felons criminal file with mine. Board failed to catch this after two denials.
No lawsuit, but you can appeal and get your permit.See question
My daughter was arrested for Aggravated Assault w/a deadly weapon; the attorney general issued a warrant because of fraudulent witness testimony. They have dropped the charges, apologized and said they would offer compensation. They want to give ...
You may have a case. I would need to have additional information to see if you do. To sue the police, you would need to prove they made the arrest without probable cause or any other legal justification. If the charges are dropped they have to return your bond money, minus the fees (most of the time 10% of the bond). If the arrest was based upon a statement from a witness that lied and the police did not known about the lie before the arrest, or the police turned a blind eye to evidence that was readily available that contradicted the lie, they will have immunity. An examination of the police reports and charging documents is necessary to see if they is a claim against the police.See question
If there is a camera at a gas station and might show the accident happening will insurance look at it?
If you request the video and submit it to the insurance they will review it. You need to be proactive and make sure the video is saved and the insurance company is aware of it. Especially if it helps you prove liability.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...
There is probably nothing you can do against the State for the inmate escaping from the correctional center. They would be afforded qualified immunity. As for your car, you need to work with your insurance company. You can total it and take the value or you could try to have a mechanic submit an estimate for the repair and see if your insurance would acceptSee question
My house raided the search warrant had my roommate's name on it but the drugs they found were mine so I signed a statement but we won a Frank's motion n the case was dismissed so can I sue for false arrest or if not what can I sue for
A civil case is much different than a criminal case. Even if there was a 4th Amendment violation, you will have little to no damages. The contraband would be admissible in the civil case. Additionally, a jury would not be sympathetic to your cases.See question
Someone is alleged to have committed a crime. A detective shows up at the door. No arrest is made. They say that you will probably receive a postcard to appear in court. Is this BS or is this the way things work in Illinois?
Do not do anything, say anything, or go anywhere without an attorney. Unless they come to your house and place you in handcuffs, you do not have to go down to the station or courthouse voluntary. At this point, They can take you against your will if they have an arrest warrant.See question
I have a court hearing for a class A misdemeanor this week. This is my 2nd appearance & first time I will meet my court appointed PD (as she's been unavailable to meet outside of court). However, my cousin's (best friend) father died and the funer...
Should you miss court, a warrant will issue for your arrest. Even if you get ahold of your public defender, that does not mean they will be able to get a pass from the judge to allow you to miss court.See question
I was convicted of a class 2 felony (OTHER AMT NARCOTIC SCHED I&II) in 2004, is there ANY way this can be expunged or sealed? I would really like to be able to get a good paying job. How far back do background checks go? I have had absolutely no ...
Cannot get it sealed or expunged, unless you where given special probation, 410 probation, and completed it satisfactory. It has been over 10 years and you have not caught another case, congrats. Best advice, be honest during interviews and show them how you have moved on. You can still find a decent paying job.See question

I am having a hard time following your question. Are you asking a question regarding an appellate procedure or a question about the merits of your allegations? Finally, do you have a question about lawyer misconduct?See question
