A firearm was stolen out of my fathers truck because he left it unlocked. This is the 2nd time this has happened in less than a couple of months. He refuses to report the second firearm.
Stepping away from the "legal" side of it, I think a better question is why is he keeping firearms in a location where they can be stolen? He obviously didnt learn once, and now a second time. Rather than being worried that it'd be used in the commission of a crime, I'd be afraid of some kids getting a hold of it, then either hurting someone or themselves.
He needs to get firearm safety training and take this more seriously.
If the gun is later involved in an injury (much less a crime), he needs to be aware that there is legitimate concern about both criminal and civil implications. You need to have a serious sit down with him and determine how to ensure he and other people are safe. At the very least, he needs the RIOT Act read to him.See question
I found out my brother passed in prison 3 mos after the fact I had called for detail and got shuffle around finally l was told the doctor would contact me been two weeks and haven't heard anything what. can I do.my family is so hurt.
You can call a local attorney, but with no information about how he passed, they may not be able to do much. My suggestion would be to keep calling and let them know that if you don't get a response, you'll be calling supervisors, the Commonwealth's Attorney, and even the media if you have to.
You might want to also call the attorney that represented him for his charge. Perhaps they can get more response?
There's been a lot of coverage about injuries and death while in custody, so they should be sensitive to this.
Best of luck and sorry for your loss.
I have been serving weekend jail time at a regional jail. This last weekend upon my release, they could not find my personal property bag. The bag contains my cloths and my cell phone. Total value would be around $2,000. There has to be a suit I c...
I agree, it's going to be difficult to prove $2,000 in value for lost clothes and a cell phone. It will also be a lot of effort trying to suit. Have they admitted to losing it? See if they will offer to replace the items.See question
In the past my uncle was brought up on charges, initially found guilty and sentenced, but at the last moment a witness testified and proved that my uncle was innocent, therefore charges were dropped and the record was sealed / just not show on his...
He needs to check the clerk in the county which his charged arose. If it's sealed, he's not going to have access to it. So he should reach out to the attorney that represented him on it.See question
I own a house in Maryland and a house in Virginia and I spend about equal time in both. I have a Maryland Drivers license. I have a car registered in VA, which I drive in VA. A police officer stopped me in VA and gave me a citation for having an i...
You have a unique set of facts here. Take a look at Virginia Code Section 46.2-300, which states when generally a person must have a license to drive in the Commonwealth. It allows excepts for those provided in Va Code 46.2-303 through 308. I think Va code 307 is the relevant one, which really points to whether your a resident of Virginia or not.
As how to define what a"resident" means, I haven't done the research in a while. But there are factors to consider involved. And I think you'll need an attorney to explain this to the prosecutor. So call one up and see what their thought is.
Best of luck,

I did not get pulled over I was helping out a friend I had gotten out of my vehicle and it was off when copes approached me and smelt alcohol they did a sobriety check and wrote me a dui ? Shouldn't I have gotten drunk in public
I agree. Your case is going to be very fact specific. Call up an attorney and talk to them.
Best of luck!
how long does it takes to take those charges out of my record if i do everything they tell me.
I agree. You're going to want to meet with a local criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Most do free consultations. The attorney will be able to walk you through the process. Also, if you do have any defenses to your case, the attorney will identify those to see if they can be put to use in your case.
Best of luck,
Im 16 , i was recently charged with Grand Larceny and Check Larceny & Conspire to commit larceny. And i have other charges , such as Obstruction of justice and Disorderly conduct.
I agree. There's a lot of different things that can happen, depending on a lot of factors. Meet with a local attorney. Most will meet for free to discuss your case. And meet before court - don't wait.

Somebody sold my friend some pills but it turned out they were birth control pills. My friend is trying to charge them with petit larceny, is that possible? It's been 4 years and they have no proof that I know of.
Yeah, you need to tell your friend to start thinking things through a little more thoroughly.
