  • Parking tickets.... Will you get a warrant for not paying a parking ticket 10 yrs ago

    Car was purchased under my name . I don't drive coz I don't have a driver's license . After a year the car was returned to the dealership for non payment and that car has a lot of parking tickets. Now I'm eligible to get a driver's license but I'm...

    Donald’s Answer

    The other lawyers are right on point. The DMV does not arrest you, but they will not give you a license until the tickets are paid off. Go to the DMV, and they can give you a list of all the courts where there are outstanding parking tickets against the car, go pay them, and go back and get your license.

    There is no record if you were not arrested. But, stay out of their stores, and stop shoplifting because the next store may not be so nice.

  • Can i be sue in any way if my ex is 18 and im 17 and we had sexual intercourse and i want to abort

    She was pregnant about 3 months ago! She says im the father but when we had sexual intercourse it was 2/3 month before she got pregnant she says it was mine but she was with another guy and by the way i was wearing protection. I want to abort the ...

    Donald’s Answer

    The decision to abort is hers not up to you. As far as the sex goes, if she was 17, she was under age and cannot give consent even if she does say it is alright; it is not alright. If there is a child born and you don't believe it is your child, have a dna test; for this you should get a lawyer that practices in family law.

    Donald’s Answer

    What was he doing with a gun in the car? AND DON'T ANSWER THAT ON LINE, BUT get an attorney right now. I don't worry about what the police charge with as they all think they are lawyers and are not, it is what the DA charges and they have to prove it. Those are two different things. Get a good criminal defense lawyer because he still has some other problems here. Long Beach try Barry Simons

  • PETITION TO SEAL JUVENILE RECORD

    Hello, I recently petitioned to have my juvenile records (which occurred over 16 years ago) sealed in the state of CA. However, because of an ADW NO FIREARMS/GBI was sustained and while other charges were dismissed, the Judge denied the petition t...

    Donald’s Answer

    They are both correct. If it cannot be sealed, it cannot be sealed. And, because of the privacy of juveniles it is almost, almost, impossible to get to it. If you put something out in public, and someone has put this into the internet system, that is out there forever.

    Donald’s Answer

    I would go to the court and have the clerk of the court get a copy of the case out of storage. If the case is on the computer, you did not complete it and there is probably a warrant out. But, it that were the case, they should have come and got you by now.

  • Criminal; Is it legal in CA to hide a hidden recording device. Situation where abuser keeps making threats. Used against him?

    The scenario is this. Mom has a very abusive drugged out family member that she is scared of. He constantly harasses and threatens her (along with stealing everything he can). Other family has been telling her to get a restraining order, call the ...

    Donald’s Answer

    Without court permission, you cannot record a phone call. However, you can have a recording systems in your house. Post a small little sigh on the outside of the house that says the house is protected by recording devices. Now, everything that is being said to her, all threats, will be recorded, and turned over to the police. I would put this in, and have one that shows the outside of the house, front and back, so show date and time with video that shows everyone who enters date and time. You do not need this for a restraining order, but once you have it, it is more protection. You NEED TO CONTACT AN ELDER ABUSE LAWYER RIGHT NOW.
