    Man and wife go to a bar and get into a fist fight. The man is charged with domestic 2nd degree and kidnapping.

    Ronald’s Answer

    Read the statute.

    565.110. 1. A person commits the crime of kidnapping if he or she unlawfully removes another without his or her consent from the place where he or she is found or unlawfully confines another without his or her consent for a substantial period, for the purpose of

    (1) Holding that person for ransom or reward, or for any other act to be performed or not performed for the return or release of that person; or

    (2) Using the person as a shield or as a hostage; or

    (3) Interfering with the performance of any governmental or political function; or

    (4) Facilitating the commission of any felony or flight thereafter; or

    (5) Inflicting physical injury on or terrorizing the victim or another.

    2. Kidnapping is a class A felony unless committed under subdivision (4) or (5) of subsection 1 in which cases it is a class B felony.

  • Can she do that?

    I have no lease my landlord gave me a thirty day notice to leave and is going to double my rent if im not out can she do that i have two small kids?

    Ronald’s Answer

    It's not necessarily 30 days. If rent is due on the first and the notice comes thereafter, the notice won't terminate the lease until the subsequent full month. For example, notice on Feb. 10 means you must be out by the end of March rather than March 11.

    An attorney may be able to help you to get the opposing counsel to file a satisfaction of judgment. There's a statute on satisfactions. I suspect that a good attorney might be able to get this accomplished with a letter or call to the opposing attorney. Or the plaintiff my resist because there were separate judgments entered. Good luck.

  • Is this legal and what implications may there be for my husband and myself?

    A family member wants to pay cash for a house and put it in my husbands name as the sole owner. They would then reside in this property. This is due to outstanding debt, due to IRS and other debtors.

    Ronald’s Answer

    Is the family member going to pay your husband's legal fees for defending a fraudulent transfer lawsuit? This scheme probably is not a good idea. Is the family member going to pay the taxes on such as large gift?

    Can you get sued? You stated that you ARE being sued. Therefore, the answer is yes. Anyone can sue anyone for anything. Be sure to appear in court and defend the case. You mentioned that you were moved to the basement. Did you consent to being moved?

  • Whats your advice

    I gave 60days to my apartment complex due to on going problems with mold and mildew. Is it responsible to except them to wave by out for early termination of my lease

    Ronald’s Answer

    My advise is to pay a local attorney to review your lease and provide a consultation. Unless you want to spend thousands litigating on the mold issue and pay for testing and an expert witness, you might not want to sue.

    Ronald’s Answer

    Perhaps an attorney can negotiate a deal for you. Generally, you cannot simply pay an attorney to get a case dismissed. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your post.
