Can I sue the jail I was locked up in for getting my face shattered in booking while asleep by some man
You should definitely contact a lawyer right away. Important evidence needed to prove your claim can get lost if not preserved quickly. Talk to a lawyer who practices near that jail to at least get your questions answered. Make sure you call someone you can trust who knows what they are doing.See question
I posted an ad on Craigslist in the casual encounter section, specifically looking for adult sexual activity, as made clear in my post. I received a reply from a girl who said she wanted to meet up with me for fun. We started to email and she aske...
Very confusing area of the law. The legal age of consent for sexual contact is 16. However, it is illegal to communicate with a person under 18 for an 'immoral' purpose of a sexual nature. That is a misdemeanor, unless done by electronic means in which case it can be a felony. The person need not actual be a minor, it is a crime if the adult believes them to be a minor (hence the "Catch a Predator").
So paradoxically what you are planning to do might not be a crime, but what you have already done probably is.
You may want to talk to a lawyer in confidence about this.
Please say anything and everything
I agree there is no legal prostitution in Washington State. If you are considering getting into the sex industry, it is probably a good idea to meet with a lawyer and just get your questions answered about what is legal and what is not, so that you do not inadvertently break the law. Most lawyers have a moderate consultation fee that would cover you getting information that could save you a lot of time and money down the road.See question
a girl on a social website would not stop harrassing me to be her online boy friend and i told her i am 18 and she is 15. she threaten suicide and would not stop messaging me and cursing at me. i reported her but she just made a new account everyt...
Yes, very clearly a crime. Specifically, Communication with a Minor for Immoral Sexual Purpose. It is a sex offense, and carries very unpleasant penalties if there is a conviction.
My advice is that you get to a lawyer's office quickly.
My niece took her son out of state without permission from the other parent and has now been arrested and charged with fugitive from justice, does that mean that she had another warrant from our state or is it from taking him from our state?
We could be mixing up terms here, hard to tell without more information. But a fugitive charge would normally allege that there is a warrant in a state other than the one the defendant is in.
In WA, the defendant can be held on bail for up to 90 days while the two states coordinate the return of the defendant. The defendant can also stipulate to the validity of the warrant and get sent back sooner.
I plead guilty to a DUI charge that I was going to take to trial. When presented with the deal, my public defender promised me that I would no longer have to be on DOC supervision and that I would not be sent to Hawaii for violation of my intersta...
It is possible. Talk to a lawyer as soon as possible, because withdrawal of the plea may be time limited. State and federal law require that an accused person be fully informed about consequences of a plea, and failure to provide that information may allow withdrawal of the plea.See question

Waive? Probably not. But in certain circumstances, a judge can convert the jail to an alternative, such as home monitoring or even credit for time in an inpatient facility.
I would be happy to discuss this with you if you want to call or email.
Arrested and plead guilty to 16.52.205 at 18 years old. 74 days in jail and two years probation which was completed October 2014. Can this be vacated from my adult record? If so, how and when?
I don't see why not. It's a class C, eligible after 5 years from time of discharge from probation. Make sure all the court's costs / fines / restitution is paid, the 5 year clock can't start until all requirements are met.
Arrested yesterday in WA state for unlawful imprisonment DV and interfering with someones attemtps to make a 911 call. She has no prior arrests or convictions of any kind.
I would say for sure that the prosecution will ask that bail be required, it is then up to the judge. With what you have described, she SHOULD be released without posting bail. But depending on the facts of the allegations, judges commonly find that the defendant is a risk to be released and require bail. Almost certainly there will be other conditions of release that impact where she can be, who she can be with, etc.See question
I was charged with breaking a protection order by going to my local courthouse to research a case I was involved in. The charge was dropped by the prosecutor but transferred to a next door County's prosecutor according to my public defender attorn...
Normally only the county prosecutor where the act took place has any authority to bring a charge. So if the incident happened in Jefferson County, for example, only the Jefferson County prosecutor would have any interest in it. However if they have a conflict of interest, then they can refer the case to a neighboring county to have it reviewed. I would probably call your public defender and ask how you can follow up and make sure there isn't a charge coming. Or you could hire a local lawyer to do the same thing.
You of course can call the two prosecutors' offices yourself, they should be able to tell you if they have a file on you that is still being reviewed or considered for charging.
