  • Can police seize guns that are locked up in gun safe when they serve a search warrant looking for a stolen gun

    im a onvicted felon from 30 years ago,police were told I had stolen rifle,my nephew had broke into a house and stole guns and property,i turned him in,they told him I did,he told them I had guns and the stolen gun,they served warrant and found my ...

    Yep. Warrants open safes if whatever they are looking for could fit in there. But if you didn't have the combo you have a defense. How will you show you didn't know? That's what you need a good 4th Amendment/privacy attorney for. Stop talking about this online or with others and get in touch with counsel. If it was the feds that showed up you are looking at long prison sentence.

  • Am i liable for a vandals injury if i reinforce my mailbox

    my mailbox was recently mailbox baseballed by a vandal and needs replaced so i have decided to make it much harder to break by putting a mailbox inside of another mailbox and filling the space with cement and mounting it to a 12 foot 4" diameter s...

    Billie’s Answer

    Maybe. You know someone might injure themselves. If someone tries to break it again, and breaks their arm instead, chances are you will be sued. You might win, you might lose. I'm betting your insurance would just settle and your premium would go up. Buy a vinyl/unbreakable box instead. It's cheaper and you won't have to worry about some dumb kid breaking their arm and suing you.

    There is an old saying that an attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client. Perhaps there is a corollary pro-se adage .... If you are eligible for public defense, take advantage of it STAT.

    I was paid a service call by an officer who may return who said I pointed my lawn rake at a passer by in a way that was threatening. People have gone to jail over simple words without action but how can simply pointing a rake be a threat and he al...

    Billie’s Answer

    If that officer, or any other, comes back, you are under no obligation to answer your door. If you do, or you are already outside, you should politely tell them you are asserting your right not to speak, ask him/her to leave, and go in the house. If you are being detained, ask for an attorney and do not discuss this rake incident at all. Let your attorney handle it. You would be amazed at how innocent words can be misinterpreted against you.

    • Selected as best answer

    Are you asking whether a missed court date can be held against you when the reason you missed was because you were in validly held in jail on a separate matter. Yep, it can be used against you. You were ordered to show up and you didn't - and the reason you didn't is your own fault, so the thinking goes. As the others have noted, an attorney can probably help you preserve your ability to obtain the deferral. The goal of the system is to not see you again and it sounds like going through treatment will help you succeed in that goal.

  • If the police are not handing over results of dna evidence how does one compel them to do this faster? It has been over a year.

    My friends ex is literally getting away with attempted murder.

    Billie’s Answer

    Knowing who wants it released could help narrow our answers here. In general, if a criminal investigation is ongoing, law enforcement need not disclose any of its evidence to anyone. If someone is being prosecuted for a crime, then that person's attorney generally has access to evidence gathered relevant to that case. With an attempted murder investigation, if no one has been charged then the investigation is probably still open, even if considered a "cold case." Only after a case is closed does the general public have access to such things, and perhaps not even then, depending on what it is (they won't be handing over their last vial of DNA sample, but perhaps the results of any tests conducted on it).

    So my attorney conducted a background check on me to see if WSP took of my convictions but when I looked at the paper my name was correctly spelled but my birthday was wrong. There was nothing on my record. Was it due to the birthday being wrong? ...

    Billie’s Answer

    Run it again. It's only $10. The rapsheet you have isn't of you, its of some unknown person with the same name but different birthdate. Especially if you'll be using the report for official purpoes, it needs to have your birthdate.

    How can the person deter the actions preserve ownership, if there are no attorneys forthcoming to protect one's rights. Are there any modes of self action one can take especially if this also involves neighbors as well.

    Billie’s Answer

    Your question is too vague. Try to give us the who/what/where/when and why, (without making admissions; there is no attorney/client privilege here).
