  • How long does a person have to press assault charges?

    I found out some devastating news from a former lover and upset about the news I struck him several times. I'm pregnant and all swings were blocked except one. Not at all strong enough to leave a mark but now is claiming there's one.

    Harry’s Answer

    Do not know about IL, but in my state there is a statute of limitations. That has to do with the state's prosecuting attorney.
    Battery is simply the unlawful touching of another.

    Harry’s Answer

    There is not enough information here to answer. Frankly, I cannot determine who is being accused of what.
    Going to trial is not a guarantee that there will either be a conviction or not.
    Strongly encourage talking with the attorney.

  • Anonymous Hate Mail

    Received 2 "anonymous" letters in the USPS and I am 100% certain it is from an associate who reported to me and was fired for insubordination. Neither letter falls into the protected class category but are harassing nonetheless. Mostly they call ...

    Harry’s Answer

    There is not enough information here to say that a crime has or is being committed. There are certainly some severe proof problems, though there certainly could be some inferences not favorable to the person terminated.
    I would suggest that you take the letters to the police. Explain exactly why you believe it is from this person.

  • I have multiple times received online sexual solicitations. Can I legally report them and will they be prosecuted?

    I have multiple times received sexual solicitations online. I reside in Texas and am a legal adult. I would like to know the laws concerning the legality of this. Is online sexual solicitation a prosecutable crime? If so, how can I go about report...

    Harry’s Answer

    If a crime in Texas, you would need to report it to the authorities. This would necessarily entangle you in the legal process. You might wish to consult a civil attorney regarding these solicitations. You might also consider reporting the transmissions to your ISP, complain to the ISP used by the solicitors and having an IT person block the sites' ability to send you anything.

  • Can a sex offender live with his biological children if his victim was under 13, and his former non-adopted step-daughter?

    Child victim was 8 years old. Sex offender divorced the mother and has no legal ties to his victim. Also, doesn't the TN Sex Offender law exclude this offender from being recognized as this child's "parent," under its definition, since the offende...

    Harry’s Answer

    I believe the answer would require more information than you have provided. The concerned party should take whatever relevant paper work he or she has and see a competent local criminal defense attorney that handles sex offender cases. Try calling the Knox county Bar Assoc. for such a referral.

  • If I was charged with a crime and I told my lawyer that I was guilty, would he be able to defend me knowing that I was guilty?

    Assuming I want to plead not guilty because evidence is on my side, how would he be able to plead not guilty for me knowing that I am? Isn't that giving false information to the court or perjury? Is it a bad idea to give all information to the la...

    Harry’s Answer

    I frequently tell my criminal clients that my job is to walk them out the front door of the court house acquitted of all charges, EVEN IF THEY SAY THEY ARE GUILTY, as long as I can do so ethically and legally.
    In short, the defense attorney's job is to prevent the DA from getting a conviction if the attorney can do so without violating the law him or herself.

    Harry’s Answer

    Generally, I agree with Mr. Lassen as to the specifics and powers granted. There is also a question as to the type of power of attorney, I think. You may also be dealing with a conservatorship.
    Suggest you might call the Knox County bar association for referral to a probate attorney. Would expect a small fee to the bar and a 1/2 - 3/4 hour free consult with the attorney.
