OK so I had recently pled guilty to a misdemeanor case it was a alcohol and Marijuana case where they said i was supplying it to a minor so they had basically dropped all the charges but now I'm on that deferred disposition crap and Marijuana is n...
I would be careful about that. Do the conditions of your deferred disposition or your bail conditions prohibit you from possessing alcohol/drugs? Are you a medical marijuana patient or are you just using it recreationally?
There is significant prejudice against marijuana by much of law enforcement.See question

Absolutely make sure to hire an attorney ASAP. Do not plead to the theft if at all possible. If you cannot afford an attorney, you may try to get one court-appointed. Your age and lack of criminal record are mitigating factors to help you avoid a conviction. Good luck.See question
During an argument with my boyfriend an ex friend that was angry called the police and told me that my boyfriend was cheating on me so i told the police thaf he slapped me. I was very intoxicated and emotional. Can i do anything to change the charge?
There is a lot you can do - not to change the charge now, but to impact the overall result. You need a lawyer yourself, to protect both you and to handle communications with the DA's office. Good luck.See question

Absolutely yes, you should get a lawyer. I don't think it is good for anyone to walk into any court, let alone criminal court, without a lawyer. Hiring a lawyer is your best option, if you can afford it. That way, you can pick your lawyer. You can get a court-appointed lawyer if you financially qualify, and there are some very good court-appointed lawyers, however, you get whomever they assign to you.
The crime they have charged you with is terrorizing. This is the terrorizing statute in Maine:
"A person is guilty of terrorizing if that person in fact communicates to any person a threat to commit or to cause to be committed a crime of violence dangerous to human life, against the person to whom the communication is made or another, and the natural and probable consequence of such a threat, whether or not such consequence in fact occurs, is: To place the person to whom the threat is communicated or the person threatened in reasonable fear that the crime will be committed."

I asked for the divorce. I have had a change of mind and heart, spouse now wants the divorce. We are still having sexual relations since filling less then 2 weeks ago. Will the judge order us counseling or continue with the divorce.
You can withdraw your own Complaint for Divorce if you wish. If she has filed a counterclaim for divorce or a new Complaint for Divorce herself, the case will go forward. The judge is not going to order you to counseling. Maine is a no fault divorce State, meaning that the cases can proceed if only one of the parties wants the divorce. Of course, nothing stops either of you from counseling, and it is a terrific idea if you both want to save the marriage. Best of luck. --TimSee question
A friend was be harassed by someone else through messages and I was at there house and asked to fill out a witness statement but I don't feel comfortable doing so
The police cannot force you to fill out a witness statement. The police, and your friend, might put pressure on you to fill out a statement, but it is totally your choice whether or not you fill out the statement. Remember, whatever you write down is hard to take back. The only way to force your testimony is by court order, but that is a different story. If you have questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.See question
I was charged with possetion of a controlled substance but was not found on me was not my car was found under the seat I was sitting in but there were two other adult males in the car and no body said anything too the police about where it came from
I agree that this is too complicated to answer. It is a factually intensive issue. Who owned the car? Who was driving? Who could reach the drugs? Is there anything in the packaging of the drugs pointing to possession by someone? Generally, possession is liberally construed, but I don't know how it is analyzed in Oregon. These cases can get factually complicated, and the most significant issue becomes who is pointing the finger at whom. Anyway, you need a criminal defense lawyer ASAP and best of luck.See question

Hi there. It sounds like you are insured for this through your Mother's policy. It is a minor accident, but I would report it through her insurance and let them take care of it for you - that's what insurance is for. It is so minor, I would be surprised to see them raise her rates, although it is possible. Good luck.See question

I just write to briefly add that you should also be careful about talking to your insurance company in a recorded statement or written statement about this information. My colleagues who have told you that you should not talk to the police are correct - please understand that is your right. They may put pressure on you but cannot force you to talk to them. When you notify your insurer they might demand a recorded statement from you. I would not give it until the potential criminal consequences are cleared up. Best of luck. --Tim from MaineSee question
I had a prior Oui resulting in me needing to maintain an SR22 which I did. Two years ago I decided to switch insurance companies and filed a new sr22 with them. I had my coverage's overlap just to be on the safe side. Well about 2 months late...
The answer is maybe. First, I'm sorry this happened to you. If it is a paperwork error, and you can establish it (which it sounds like you can), you may have something. However, the damages aspect may be the most difficult aspect of the case. In other words, how you establish that you are missing out on jobs because of the suspension of your license is the trick. I imagine that the jobs you applied for involved driving (otherwise the previous suspension would probably not be an issue). Establishing a record of your application and rejection by employers would be important, and then beyond that we would need to establish that you did not get the job due to the suspension. So, not an easy case, but may be worth exploring. You can email me directly if you would like at email@example.comSee question
