    Rixon’s Answer

    YOu may legally possess a firearm so long as you comply with the laws in every state you travel in.

    Your felon GF on the other hand will be placed at risk of arrest.

    Strongly recommend you speak to a gun rights attorney and law enforcement before you do anything.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Depends on the representation agreement you signed. Had your lawyer needed to bend over backwards for you, would you offer to pay more than the representation agreement.

    Rixon’s Answer

    These issues are not civil rights matters, changing practice area to lawsuits and disputes.

    Odd that you admit to a crime in an open public forum ("I bought drugs...")
    Odd, you reported the theft of your drugs to police?
    You are free to report anything you believe to be harassing or threatening to police.
    Nothing you posted here indicates the neighborhood watch has done anything improper.

  • In the state of Oregon when being arrested does the officer have to read you your rights?

    My boyfriend was arrested by a man in street clothes and he never identified himself and his rights weren't read until he got to the jail.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Sounds like his rights were read!

    FYI, Miranda rights are NOT required, ever. Common misunderstanding from too much TV. Only if the Government intends to use statements made during a custodial interrogation can a Miranda challenge be applied. Frequently the Government does not need any statements (like with a DUI for example).
