  • What should I do? I'm being sued from 12-15 years ago

    I just found out by MO casenet that I have a "suit on account". An alias summons has been issued. I'm not sure what this is about. It says ge capital but I called ge and they said my current account is up to date. The only other one I can think of...

    Timothy’s Answer

    I would suggest placing this question in the civil section just as Mr. Fry recommended. Consult with a lawyer to see what they may do to help (I don't mean the lawyer that filed suit as they are looking out for their client's interest and not yours).

  • My son is charged with rape .he cannot have contact with her i know that.but iam i allowed to contact her

    the police arrested him be he wanted to help someone.i was here at the time and he didnt rape her.a friend talked her into calling the police.it was agreed with both parties

    Timothy’s Answer

    I fully agree with Mr. Worsham and Mr. De Groot. Any contact with her could be viewed as victim tampering. Definitely consult with an attorney. Missouri Revised Statute 575.270 indicates that victim tampering is a class C felony.

    N/a

    Timothy’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answer. I would add that any attempt to influence her to not show up to court could lead to the charge of victim tampering being filed against you.

  • My sis is still on my background when employers pull it up

    I was locked up and got off papers early and it still pops up stopping me from getting assistance and jobs

    Timothy’s Answer

    Employers seem to be more concerned with honesty than if you had a criminal case in the past. For that reason, I think it is best to disclose the criminal case before the potential employer sees it on a background check.

  • How long after i am released can police use my blood for dwi

    I failed a field sobriety test after a wreck and refused a breath test then was arrested for suspicion of dwi. I was held in county for four hours and released. I went to the hospital on my own after that because i broke my ribs,ankle, and tore ...

    Timothy’s Answer

    I agree with Matthew. Additionally, they may or may not need the blood test results to pursue the case depending on field sobriety tests but it sounds as if those results will be skewed by an inability to perform certain tests (due to the ankle injury). You should consult with an experienced DWI attorney.

  • Received a ticket for C&I for hitting a stopped vehicle. Rear ending in accident. Can I really get a year in jail?

    In car accident, rear ended a car, which then bumped a bike. Received a C&I for striking a stopped car. Saw I could get up to a year in jail? Really for a traffic violation? What do I do? First accident ever and first ticket ever. Do I hire ...

    Timothy’s Answer

    That is the maximum range of punishment for a class A misdemeanor (1 year in jail and/or a fine not to exceed $1,000.00). Many times, tickets of this nature can be resolved without points being assessed against your driving record. I don't ever recall seeing a sentence with jail time being executed on any cases similar to the one you described.

  • When you have to testify in a trial are you aloud to be in the courtroom during the rest of the trial.

    Murder trial

    Timothy’s Answer

    If either the prosecutor or the defense attorney invokes the rule on witnesses, you will not be allowed in the courtroom unless you are the defendant. If you are the defendant, you should be allowed in the courtroom.

  • If you get a petty theft charge amended can you get the arrest sealed?

    If a petty theft charge is amended to littering or an ordinance violation is it still possible to get the arrest sealed as if it was dismissed?

    Timothy’s Answer

    Unfortunately, not. Missouri Revised Statute 610.122 states when an arrest record may be expunged and is listed below.
    "Arrest record expunged, requirements.
    610.122. Notwithstanding other provisions of law to the contrary, any record of arrest recorded pursuant to section 43.503 may be expunged if the court determines that the arrest was based on false information and the following conditions exist:

    (1) There is no probable cause, at the time of the action to expunge, to believe the individual committed the offense;

    (2) No charges will be pursued as a result of the arrest;

    (3) The subject of the arrest has no prior or subsequent misdemeanor or felony convictions;

    (4) The subject of the arrest did not receive a suspended imposition of sentence for the offense for which the arrest was made or for any offense related to the arrest; and

    (5) No civil action is pending relating to the arrest or the records sought to be expunged."
