5 years on a D felony for a first timer is stiff, then again it is Schenectady county. There may be aggravating circumstances which only his attorney would know, so ask him specific questions.See question
I was walking my dog on Saturday 9/19/16 at 4pm. We walked past a man with 2 children: a 10 yr old boy about 5 ft in front of him and a 5-6 yr old girl about 50 feet in front of him. The boy had a noticeable and (what looked to be) recent wound...
I assume the concern is rabies, which is a bit absurd. If you sent him sufficient proof, tell him to stop calling you and tell him he should have his child tested for whatever he thinks is of concern of having been contracted. You should not concede or admit the dog bit the child, or that you are in any way liable, including paying for the testing. If he keeps calling, you may advise him you will file a complaint for electronic harassment if he does not leave you alone (a misdemeanor).See question
I rent half of a duplex, the owners/landlords live in the other half of the property. The owners have dogs that are always pooping in the front yard on my side of the duplex. They just let their dogs run anywhere on electric fence and they are poo...
Having suffered this very annoying circumstance at least twice in my life, I fully empathize. Chew your landlord's ear off. Also, check the local ordinances, which often have something relevant. Alternativley, while not a legal remedy, when you see the offense taking place, call the owner immediately and tell him to clean up the mess. I did that (surprisingly successfully) and when it would happen again, I would scoop it up and put it on the owner's doorstep. They got the message quickly.See question
Dog killed by seeding vehicle.
In NY, loss of companionship is not a separate cause of action for damages in such cases, but it is an element in determining value of the dog. See Brousseau v. Rosenthal , 110 Misc. 2d 1054 (N.Y. Misc. 1980. However, there is no negligent infliction of emotional distress for the wrongful death of a companion animal in NY. .Other factors affecdting value are the more obvious: breed, age, health, use of the dog, etc. NY does not entertaine emotional distress. Sorry for your loss.See question

Sexual battery) 14 years old. It was Dismissed at DA office. I'm trying to get into the military now but I'm worried about this accident happening few years back will it Dq me to join, also will it show on a federal background check ?
Most likely, as typically the federal government does not recognize dispositions giving minors a second chance (e.g. sealed records) and an act of sexual perversion is usually a dealbreaker. Speak to the recruiter, though.See question

I am serving a 5yr felony probation term for DWI of which I've completed over 3yrs without incident and was reporting by mail for about a year and a half. I have a Court ordered interlock ignition device which needs to be changed every 2 months. I...
First, the problem you raise, an inaccurate reading by the IID, is not unusual. There is a fiction entertained by courts and probation officers that these devices are reliable, when they actually are often wrong. However, they are blindly followed. Second, with regard to treatment, advise probation you cannot afford it, and often they will provide a clinic or sliding scale provider for their mandated services, even though your condition of probabtion probably state that you are responsible for such costs. The sentencing court can change such a condition if you come before the court with proof that you are not wealthy enough to meet all of these expensive requirements. Good luck.See question
