Can a prisoner who is serving three life time sentences receive inheritance money
An Internet search revealed the following answer applicable to MI inmates: "A few states, including Michigan but not Pennsylvania, will file a claim for incarceration costs against a prisoner who receives an inheritance or other windfall. The personal representative or trustee does not have an obligation to report an inheritance to correctional authorities, but a Michigan prisoner does. The State Correctional Facility Reimbursement Act (SCFRA), Michigan Compiled Laws Annotated (MCLA) 800.401, et seq., requires a state prisoner to report his or her income and assets and imposes a reimbursement scheme that allows the Department of Corrections to assert a claim on most financial resources. MCLA 800.401a(a)."
I other words if DOC learns of the inheritance and it is in his name they can charge him for the costs of incarceration.See question
I was issued a trespass notice from Target a couple days ago. I gave them two addresses, and the manager said a letter will be sent to both addresses. How is this notice sent? Will I get a normal letter from the Target corporation or will the po...
You will get a letter from Target. If the police were not called to the scene of the crime you will not likely pick up any criminal charges.See question
My parole officer put warrants out for not being at the house when he come
You may have violated your parole but it is still in effect. If there is a decision made after a hearing that your violation is serious enough you could be sent back to prison. I doubt this will happen since your violation does not appear serious. Call your PO.See question
There was absolutely no reason other than the cops being bored for me to be pulled over I have no priors for anything at all but I did have one hydrocodone. I have a job and a family to support I need help so that I don't go to jail.
Then you should hire a lawyer. S/he may want to inquire into the reasons for the stop as well as the search. Although you got arrested if you are lucky the DA will not file charges. One pill is not a hell of a case.See question

It was for Assault 1st. I was given the Alford plea due to the evidence pointing to my innocence. I was just wondering if, in the state of Kentucky, I was able to have it expunged after a certain period of time. Seeing as it prevents me from jobs ...
An Alford plea is a guilty plea entered into by you because you fear that if you go to trial you will be convicted. So your question is whether a conviction based on a guilty plea can be expunged.See question
Can counsel object to false statements made in the prosecutors opening and summation. That incriminates the defendant. That is proven by evidence before trial and trial records made to the jury that was false? In advance thank you for your input.
An attorney can object to statements made in opening and closing but it is usually unwise. The jury gets the impression that the objecting attorney does not want the full story told. Beyond that opening and closing statements are NOT evidence and you could not be convicted on the basis of either (assuming the jury does its duty).See question

Tell your PO and get points for honesty. S/he will find out anyway and will punish you more harshly if you failed to self-report.See question
If my attorney failed to object to material inconsistent statements that could have been corroborated to be materially false. Made by the states witness and the prosecutor. Would that evidence be all that is need to corroborate ineffective assist...
It's not enough that an attorney made a mistake (and I'm not passing judgement on yours). The mistake has to result in prejudice to your case which normally requires a conviction. You don't see IAC claims raised after acquittals. So unless you can show out of all the circumstances that this was a mistake and led to your conviction you are SOL.See question
