  • This may be an odd question. However, is it a federal crime to hack an account on a social medium?

    I had an encounter with someone threatening to hack a friends account, on a social site which does house private information in order to make the account.

    Jeremy’s Answer

    It most certainly could be. The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, a federal law, seemingly covers this kind of conduct.

    Jeremy’s Answer

    There are some exceptions within federal law that permit felons to purchase a firearm when their rights have been restored. However, this is a tricky area of the law filled with different nuances. Before doing anything like this, I would encourage you to speak with an attorney about this matter.

  • IS CHANGING MAIL DELIVERY ADDRESS BY A THIRD PERSON A CRIME?

    I sold my business where my corp and personal mail was delivered and put in a change of address with the post office for both. Not receiving mail for over a week one of the buyer's employees called to say she had changed my personal and corp addr...

    Jeremy’s Answer

    I actually do not think this was legal. The person executing the change of address form, whether online or in paper format, is warned that:

    "The person who prepares this form states that he or she is the person, executor, guardian, authorized officer, or agent of the person for whom mail would be forwarded under this order. Anyone submitting false or inaccurate information on this form is subject to punishment by fine or imprisonment or both under Sections 2, 1001, 1702 and 1708 of Title 18, United States Code."

    I would encourage you to contact your local U.S. Postal Inspection Service office, as they are the law enforcement arm of the U.S. Postal Service.

  • When you subpoena a witness for defense in a federal criminal trial how much notice do you have to give them ?

    Trial date is set for mid November for my husbands case and there are six defense witnesses. Two live 2800 miles away and I am concerned that they will not be served on time.. The most important witness is scheduled to be on vacation for the week ...

    Jeremy’s Answer

    As the other commenters note, the subpoena is subject to being quashed potentially for unreasonableness, but it is usually very rare for a motion to quash to be granted based on the fact that a witness will be on vacation. Jurors, the parties and others involved in litigation are often forced to change their plans in order to accommodate the process.
