  • Is it illegal for an 18 year old boy and a 15 year old girl to date in Nebraska if we do not commit any sexual activity?

    There will be no sexual activity other than kissing. Also we will have been dating for about 3 months before I turn 18.

    Tregg’s Answer

    This is very dangerous. Your definition of sexual activity and the State's could be very different.

  • How long does it take someone in jail to get their plea deal so they can get out of jail, going on a week now.

    Was told it would happen in a few days but it is taking way longer.

    Tregg’s Answer

    There is no way to give you a good answer based on the facts provided. The State does not have to offer anything ever.

  • Probation violation for theft by deception first offense

    On probation for five years and it is the end of my probation. I have paid all fines, paid back restitution before sentencing, and completed all community service hours. My PO has violated me for a missed appointment. What can I expect.

    Tregg’s Answer

    If the Court finds that you have violated probation, you could be sentenced as if you have done no probation at all. Contact your attorney.

  • Say a person has a class c misdemeanor on their record but no such occurrence ever happened....is this grounds for a law suit

    Tregg’s Answer

    It might be possible in certain situations. If you have a credit report that shows a conviction, where none occurred and it has cost you a job, insurance or credit, you may have a case under the FCRA, if the CRAs fail to remove the error after you demand they do so. If your NCIC report shows an error, (and not credit reports), then I am not aware you can do much about it.

  • How to I remove a debt collection from my credit history?

    I had an apartment that flooded twice, had bats that attacked us on our back porch and made our animals sick, and an air conditioning unit with a filter so dirty that you couldn't shine a light through it. I asked for things to be fixed but nothin...

    Tregg’s Answer

    Your problem is twofold. Rather than withholding rent, if you would have used the rent money to repair the issues, you would have had a defense on the eviction. There may have been a second hearing in your eviction case where the landlord asked for damages. Your question is unclear if that is the case. If so, then there may be a judgment against you and the landlord has hired the collector to get the money from you. Even if there is no judgment, the landlord might still hire a collector to come after you for what they think you owe. As far as the bad trade lines on your Credit Report, if the trade lines are true, there is not much you can do to delete them. If they are not true, then you can dispute with the CRAs and when they fail to remove the tradelines, you may have an FCRA case against the CRAs and the collector. You may want to dispute the debt with the collector. At least then your reports should show that the debt is disputed. Unfortunately, this all started with "withheld rent".

    Tregg’s Answer

    A child the age of your daughter cannot give consent to sexual contact as a matter of law. Not document you sign will change that.

  • I keep getting calls me threatening me that i will be taken to court but they don't give me the name of the company.

    they don't tell me the name of the company or anything about the case just that i owe money and that after it goes to court that i have no legal rights. what should i do.

    Tregg’s Answer

    I smell a scammer here. Legitimate collectors are required under the FDCPA to send you something in the mail (called a Dunning letter) within 5 days of the first contact. They also have to tell you the name and address of the business they are calling from. If the caller is claiming a payday loan, (typically online), then I would be suspicious. You can always call their bluff and tell they you will accept service.

  • In the state of Nebraska, is it legal for a 20+ year old guy to date a 16 year old girl as long as there is no sexual contact?

    Would it be okay for a relationship like that be legal if their parents are okay with it and as long as there is NO sexual contact?

    Tregg’s Answer

    That is a minefield that should best be avoided. Possible issues are a felony conviction, prison time and registry as a sex offender.

    You can fight the lawsuit, but there is no requirement that the Plaintiff has to notify you prior to filing suit.

  • Can a debt collecter check your credit card balances and tell you have room ona card for a payment

    hospital bill,been paying on it monthly,but not enough for them

    Tregg’s Answer

    Debt collectors might be able to pull your reports, but they may not be able to tell the limits on the cards. If the collector is harassing or being untruthful with you, you may have a claim against he collector under the FDCPA.
