I called the Police department to find out why they came into my house when no one was there. I want to know who took my recorder. I reported the incident to internal affairs and told them I recorded all the phone calls between me and the Police. ...
I need clarification. If neither you, nor anyone else, were at home when the burglary occurred, and there was no warrant, what makes you think it was the police? Couldn't it have been someone else?See question
Hello! I was arrested 2 years ago for shoplifting. I attented Diversion program and the case was dismissed. My question is if my employer make a background check for me will my name pop up or my record will be clear? Thank you!
If it was dismissed after you successfully completed a diversion program, then you do not have a conviction for it on your record. That is the most important thing. But, as my colleagues also discussed, the fact that you were charged with it and had a court case for it will always be a matter of public record. I agree that you should always tell potential employers, schools, professional programs, etc. that it happened, but that you completed diversion and were not convicted. Give as much detail as you can. It is much better if they learn it directly from you than from their risk management department. It shows you are honest and reliable. And, if you are still disqualified, my opinion is that it is better to know that up front than to find out later, after much time and energy has been wasted on it.See question
I am not a locksmith. Is it legal for me to possess and intend to sell lock picking kits which consist of metal lock picks to the general public? Will I need a license of any type and can I be prosecuted if a person who buys one of my lock picking...
Interesting question. You should take a look at Arizona's Burglary Tools statute:
13-1505. Possession of burglary tools; master key; manipulation key; classification
A. A person commits possession of burglary tools by:
1. Possessing any explosive, tool, instrument or other article adapted or commonly used for committing any form of burglary as defined in sections 13-1506, 13-1507 and 13-1508 and intending to use or permit the use of such an item in the commission of a burglary.
2. Buying, selling, transferring, possessing or using a motor vehicle manipulation key or master key.
B. Subsection A, paragraph 2 of this section does not apply to a person who either:
1. Uses a master key in the course of the person’s lawful business or occupation, including licensed vehicle dealers and manufacturers, key manufacturers who are engaged in the business of designing, making, altering, duplicating or repairing locks or keys, locksmiths, loan institutions that finance vehicles and law enforcement.
2. Transfers, possesses or uses no more than one manipulation key, unless the manipulation key is transferred, possessed or used with the intent to commit any theft or felony.
C. Possession of burglary tools is a class 6 felony.A.R.S. § 13-1505

1994 4th degree domestic violence in michigan. Fines paid. 6 months probation completed. Az resident since 2010. Seeking weapons rights restored for hunting and home defense. The DV is the only thing ever on my record.
I agree with Mr. Williams. You should apply for restoration of rights in the jurisdiction that took them from you, even if you are now living in Arizona. As you are probably already aware, it is a class 4 felony in Arizona to possess a deadly weapon if you are a prohibited possessor.
Once you get the order from the Michigan court restoring your rights, you should make several copies. Keep one with the gun at all times.
I have a friend arrested in TX on a bench warrant out of AZ who signed a waiver of extradition before a Ft. Worth, TX judge; however he has been serving time in Texas since January 2015 and will be there for at least another year. What are his ri...
As Mr. Simmons pointed out, there are many moving parts (different things going on that affect one another). Most of those moving parts cannot be known without taking a look at the waiver that your friend signed. My best guess is that it probably included a waiver of any applicable time limits for carrying out the extradition. Also, he might be serving out a sentence in Texas before they extradite him. And maybe Arizona has decided not to extradite him after all. These are all just guesses. Your friend should start with a very close reading of anything he signed.
God bless you!

I agree with both of my colleagues. The rule of exclusion of witnesses, also known as simply "the rule," does note apply to alleged victims of the crime or to the "case agent," who is usually the detective assigned to the case.

Suing the police will not be possible under the circumstances you describe. Many people feel this way, and their reaction is that they want to sue the police. But the police do have discretion regarding what cases to submit for formal charges. In your case, it sounds like the police investigated and did not find that the evidence would support filing criminal charges. That does not mean that it didn't happen, or that your child is not suffering. It just means that the police do not believe that the evidence available will support a guilty conviction in a criminal court.
In these cases, the police will typically have a specialized forensic interviewer conduct a recorded interview with the child. Often, they will oversee a telephone call, referred to as a "confrontation call" where the victim calls the alleged perpetrator and tries to get him to apologize for what he did, all while it is being recorded. That recording is then used against the perpetrator in the criminal case. Did the police do any of those things in this case? Forensic interview with victim? Confrontation call to perpetrator? Did they try to interview the alleged perpetrator to see what he has to say? Most of the time, they will admit to enough for an arrest to be made and charges filed.
Otherwise, if you want to file a lawsuit, it would have to be against the perpetrator himself. But, you first need to ask whether a civil judgment against him would do you any good. For example, if he has homeowners insurance, intentional torts such as this would be excluded from coverage, so the only way to really prevail would be if he had assets to go after.
There is much more that can and should be discussed here. You should try getting a meeting with someone from your local County Attorney's office. Perhaps you could speak to someone from their Victims' Advocate department, or a prosecutor from their sex crimes bureau. In the meantime, definitely continue your child in therapy. The good news is that there is no statute of limitations for crimes such as these. Even when your child matures to adulthood, the criminal case can still be filed against the perpetrator, so long as the evidence is there.
I have a misdemeanor conviction for shoplifting in Arizona. The punishment was very harsh. 90 days in jail! What could possibly happen to me if I moved out of state and not turned myself in to do the time?
If the court ordered for you to turn yourself in on a certain date to complete a jail sentence, then you will have a warrant for your arrest if you do not turn yourself in as ordered by the court. If you flee the jurisdiction and go to another state, it will follow you. Any time you have contact with law enforcement for any reason, the warrant will show up. It may also cause you problems in other areas such as housing and public benefits (if you ever needed them). When you go to get a driver's license or state ID in the new state, it could come up. Also, some warrants are extraditable, which means that if you are picked up on the warrant in another state, you would be extradited back to Arizona. In a nutshell, your troubles get much, much bigger and longer lasting if you go on the run.
You may be aware of the "work furlough" and "work release" and "2-For-1" programs in the jail, which can alleviate the pain of serving the sentence.
No one wants to go to jail, but you will be much better off if you do not run from this.

Can two felons one for DUI and second for theft non violent for both. Will it be permissible for them to live in same house in Arizona
If both of them have completed their sentences, are no longer under some form of probation or community supervision, and there is no court order that is still in effect for either one of them to have no contact with other convicted felons, then there would not be any legal impediment to them residing together. If they are unsure, they should certainly each consult their lawyers, who would know the specific facts and circumstances of their individual cases.

Based on your question, it sounds like the community service requirement is the ONLY thing he is struggling to comply with. If that is the case, then I do agree with Mr. Nurmi that he probably does not have to worry about jail or prison time because of it. There are many options for completing community service hours. Even though he works long hours, he can find something that will suit his schedule. It sounds like he has been very motivated to do well in all of the other areas, this should be no exception. My personal favorite recommendation for community service is to volunteer at St. Vincent DePaul, where they feed, bathe, and clothe the poor.
