Since your charge..CPW 2...contains the element of "intent to use (the weapon) unlawfully", it is highly likely that the judge WILL allow the D.A. to introduce evidence of the shooting, regardless of whether there is a Reckless Endangerment charge. Indeed, there is ample appellate case law to support the introduction of such testimony. Sorry!
It is highly unlikely that any court of law will accept the results of such a home DNA test.
Admissible DNA testing ordinarily require a very high degree of training and expertise; Moreover, specialized laboratories are used to obtain results. Even then, challenges to admissibility and/or results are often raised by counsel.
At the most, such home DNA test results might create an issue which the court may be willing to address, such as by ordering testing via proper methodology and...
As a former prosecutor who handled hundreds of extraditions, I can tell you that there is no definitive answer to your query. Because of the costs attendant to requesting an extradition from another state, local prosecutors don't always file. The charges sound fairly serious, but that is just one of the many factors. They will also consider the strength of the case (available evidence of guilt), likelihood of conviction, prior criminal record, and, as I said, the costs involved. (For example,...
You can file a complaint with the police or your local DA's Office and see if they believe there is a basis for criminal charges. As my colleagues have so eloquently stated, ICE will not act on your report; As a former prosecutor, I can tell you that ICE is overwhelmed and understaffed and generally will not take action in this type of situation absent a deportable felony conviction.
Best of Luck!
It is not likely that you can get felony convictions expunged; However, some states do make provision for a "certificate of relief from civil disabilities"...speak to an attorney in your state to learn if Indiana has such a provision.
I agree with my colleague...Yours is not really a legal problem. Since they are not obliged to drug test you at their expense, I think you really have 3 choices:
1) Pay for and take your own test and present the (hopefully) negative findings, to stifle the gossip; or
2) Resign from the volunteer Fire Dept.; or
3) Grin and bear it!
Best of luck!
I would say you've got real problems...This looks to be a classic "he said, she said" scenario. In other words, all the signed, WRITTEN agreements here favor the seller, not you.
If you co-signed the loan, and the vehicle was sold "as is" -- without any warranty, then you will be stuck with the repair bill. Perhaps if this was a purchase from a dealer, and you can show that the dealer knowingly misrepresented the condition of the car, you might have a shot. The general rule in these cases,...
