    Noah’s Answer

    Easiet way to find out (instead of guessing) is for her to get a copy of her criminal history. She can get it at just about any law enforcement agency for about $25.00.

  • Should I talk to Olive Gardens Representative about being burned. No one has called to check on the situation or me.

    Dining in at Olive Garden, the waitress was trying to put my bowl of boiling hot mussel appetizer on the table, but she spilled some on my leg, arm and wrist. My 4 year old daughter had her head in my lap so as soon as the hot liquid hit my leg I ...

    Noah’s Answer

    Of course you should be upset that no one has called to check on you. You should also be compensated for your injuries, especially if you are going to have a permanent scar. If you want the Olive Garden to take you seriously, you will need a lawyer.

  • Can I use first offenders on a felony charge if I'm already on felony probation and didn't use my first offenders on the first t

    Ok so charged with a felony been on felony probation for 4 years have six left. I was driving a family member car and was pulled over and was searched and they found a gun under the hood. I was arrested for poss. Of fire arms by convicted felon. W...

    Noah’s Answer

    No, you cannot use first offender if you have already been convicted of a felony. As to your current offense, what was the basis for the police to search the car and especially under the hood (that is unusual). While you can be prosecuted for this offense (you can be prosecuted for anything) you should hire a lawyer to fight the case. It sounds like there is a search issue and the State still has to prove that you intended to possess the firearm.

    Noah’s Answer

    It really depends on when the alcohol was consumed over those two hours but if I had to guess, 7 beers in 2 hours, you will be over the legal limit

    Noah’s Answer

    Why would you consider sending your son to court for a criminal case without a lawyer? A criminal conviction can haunt your son for the rest of his life. You, working in the legal field, should understand the importance of having a skilled and knowledgeable attorney representing your interests. If your son doesn't know how to get his case continued, how will he know what to do when he gets to court?

    Noah’s Answer

    Unless you are a lawyer, the answer is no. However, your brother's lawyer can file a motion for bond, which he is entitled to if he has been in jail for 90 days without indictment.
