I give the same answer to this question every time I get asked. Law is like medicine. You are dealing with professionals who have special training and education. Some are better trained and more educated than others. If I get sick, I know that I can go to the free clinic and see a doctor... but I don't. There are plenty of good competent doctors at the free clinic, but I prefer not to take my chances if u can hire a doctor with a good reputation who I know will help me as much as possible.
A person may be sued if they use illegal force on another person resulting in injury. You need to apply that law to your facts. Did you use illegal force on this person? Depends on what you did. If you shot someone who was spraypainting a wall, then yes. If you chased a person and they tripped, probably not. You are allowed to legally use non-lethal force to prevent your things from being vandalized or stolen. You are required to legally use the minimum force necessary to acomplish this goal....
You can only get in trouble for either violating one of the parole terms, or breaking the law. If there is no term barring him from speaking to other parolees (and I have never heard of such a term being imposed) and if there is no gang term that would get in the way, I don't see a problem. The jail/prison will not let a felon physically visit, but they could talk over the phone or via letter. You should know that both are monitored by the guards.
The next time it happens, ask the officer for his name and badge number and file a complaint with his office. The next time after that, same thing. The next time after that, same thing. At that point you can reasonably think about talking to a an attorney about filing a lawsuit, with enough paper to back your allegations.
Not to be a wise guy but it depends on what you are being charged with. I can't give you a complete overview of realignment, but there are a few highlights: 1. All cases that fall into realignment are served out at half time. This means that (unless you get into trouble in the jail) you will only serve half of your sentence. Different crimes have different sentences. I've seen inmates serving 10 year terms locally (they were convicted of a whole string of felonies). 2. The cirmes that fall into...
There are TWO things that restrict your actions after a domestic violence convcition.
1. It was probably a term of your probation that you stay away from the victim. Once probation is terminated, this is no longer an issue.
2. The Court usually will give a SEPARATE order called a Domestic Violence Restraining Order that prevents you from contacting the victim. Violation of this order is a crime. This order usually lasts for three years, so if you are off probation the odds are that the...
1. You don't have a record right now. You have t been arrested or charged with a crime. If you eventually are charged and convicted you can rxounge your record once you get off probation. Look up penal code 1202.4.
2. Public defender. Private counsel don't work for free.
Lol. Classic law school question. No, you cannot boobytrap your land. The idea is that it might someday harm police or other people that may try to gain access for legal means. There are also use of force issues.
It depends. The District Attorneys's Office can request an arrest warrant from a judge, or they can decide to cite the person by letter to appear in court. For a theft crime I would usually exist the later, but not always. There is no time frame. As soon as an arrest warrant is granted the peson can be arrested. Could be within hours if law enforcement cares enough and can find the person quickly. Weeks if not.
