    Christopher’s Answer

    Yes you can be charged with FSGI and it sounds like the state may have all the elements they need to convict you if you made statements similar to your question to law enforcement. Luckily nobody was injured or you would be facing a felony.

    While it does sound like this individual is "creepy" I am not sure that any laws have been violated. If you think you are the victim of a crime you should report it to the local authorities and let them investigate. If you believe that you are a victim of a bad business then you should report that to the Better Business Bureau or some other online forum that rates businesses such as his.

  • I am 19 and my girlfriend is 16, her parents want to press charges against me for having sex with her, do I have a defense

    what should i do if my girl friends parents want to press charges for us havin sex im 19 and she is 16 .

    Christopher’s Answer

    You need to put pen to paper and see exactly how far apart you are in age to gauge your exposure. As Cynthia says, if you are even 1 day over the 3 year mark then you are in trouble. So, if you are going to turn 20 before she turns 17 then I am guessing that you will have some exposure. If she turns 17 before you turn 20 then I believe my math is correct and you are within the 3 year rule.

    As Cynthia also stated, when she turns 17 she can have consensual sex with any consenting adult. It should be remembered in today's society of camera phones and what not that it is still illegal to take pictures of her engaged in sex until she is 18.

  • What are the steps to expunging a felony?

    I have a 3rd degree felony on my record and am wanting to get it expunged. How do I do this?

    Christopher’s Answer

    The key here is whether or not you have a simple arrest for a 3rd degree felony or whether you have a conviction/DADJ. A conviction or a DADJ cannot be expunged where an arrest can be.

    Sit down with a lawyer and see what can be done for you.

    Christopher’s Answer

    From the description you posted of the picture I do not believe that it is child porn. If the picture is considered child porn you could be charged with possession and distribution/manufacturing of child porn. I do not believe that is the case as you described in your question.

    If you are contacted by authorities in regards to this matter you should decline to answer their questions until you sit down with a criminal defense lawyer to discuss this matter more thoroughly.

  • Can David Letterman be prosecuted for his offences?

    Can David Letterman be prosecuted for his offences? That dude slept with a bunch of women from his office!!!!

    Christopher’s Answer

    While I am not familiar with NY law, I am unaware of any law that makes it a crime to sleep with someone from your office. While at one time in the past adultery was illegal, that is no longer against the law either. As far as I am aware, he has done nothing illegal.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Yes the case can be dropped. I have a feeling the police officer's version (right or wrong) will be different from your version. Witness statements are important in these cases and should be obtained quickly before memories fade.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Your attorney is correct. It is mandatory. What the judge could do is allow you to surrender on a Friday and then you would go through the next weekend. That way you could let your job know that you need a week off for personal reasons.

    Christopher’s Answer

    The client has the right to representation of his/her choice. You can hire any attorney that you like who is licensed to practice in Texas. In any criminal case you should hire the best attorney that you can afford whom you feel comfortable with. After all...it is your life.
