  • Slander, Intentional/Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress. Is this actionable? The offenders are both employed with assets

    Briefly, I have a son from my first marriage who is now 32 years old and gainfully employed. Since he was a young child, he's been emotionally and physically abusive. As an adult, I had to get three successive orders of protection against him when...

    Jason’s Answer

    The problem with these types of lawsuits is damages. You can prove fault all day, but a jury requires monetary damages. They don't buy emotional damages generally. So, I Judge could tell you that you win your lawsuit, but you are awarded nothing.

    I wouldn't waste you time and money. Judge stay away from them if they can't be civil.

    Jason’s Answer

    Impossible to tell. Each Judge is different and every county is different. Also depends on his record and age. He could be looking at 10 years or more.

    Jason’s Answer

    Do not try to talk to the Judge yourself. Hire a lawyer to straighten this mess out. Sounds like people don't want to follow the Court's orders and there has to be consequences for that.

  • HOW CAN I GET THIS POSSIBLY THROWN OUT?

    I was caught with a small joint of marijuana and was charged with drug possession, I'm in the nursing field and that could potentially kill my career

    Jason’s Answer

    Not much to work with in the hypo, but this could easily be won. You have good mitigation here which might warrant a dismissal or modification of the charge. You could ask for a diversion. There could also be suppression of evidence issues. If you fight enough, the prosecutor could decide it isn't worth the fight for a minor misdemeanor.

  • Can I avoid jail time

    My license was suspended for an ovi but an emergency came up and I drove my mom to the hospital and my girlfriend to school but I got pulled over

    Jason’s Answer

    Emergency is a full defense to this DUS charge, but driving her to school isn't an emergency. But driving mom to the ER is a good place to start and might earn you a reduction from the OVI DUS, which carries mandatory jail time. Hire an atty. Get a reduction after showing them the evidence.

    Jason’s Answer

    Sounds like long term treatment is in your near future. There are consequences to missed appointments. TIL is a great opportunity, but most screw it up.

  • I think it might say the 18th,but I'm not sure what do I do?

    I was giving a citation for petty theft in Cleveland Ohio but i can't see the court date info so I called the clerk of courts and they said they don't see a upcoming court date.

    Jason’s Answer

    Probably not in the system yet. Call the next day and get another clerk. Use your SS# or DOB to find you in the system. You may want to try searching through the online docket too.

  • Will i be arrested at the bmv for an Ohio state issued i.d.?

    I am in Ohio and I have a felony warrant for a probation violation and i want to get a new state issued id. Will i be arrested? I was told you will be for a drivers license but not a state i.d

    Jason’s Answer

    You can be arrested, yes. BMV is linked in to law enforcement and the courts. They will probably be aware of your warrant. Whether the clerk notifying the authorities is another matter. Call a lawyer.

  • How do I get my warrant blocks lifted? ??

    I am on ssi and i have 5 warrant blocks in 5 different cities. I went to court and the judge gave me 45 days to get my license and insurance. But I can't afford to pay all the fines. I dont know what to do.. PLEASE HELP!!!

    Jason’s Answer

    Warrants are only lifted by appearing before the Judge or getting the prosecutor to speak to the Judge about lifting the warrant (rare). Best to show up first thing in the morning of regular court and be prepared to defend yourself by showing that you are there voluntarily and that you are making efforts to get a valid license.

    Jason’s Answer

    If they are out of the same case, then it shouldn't be too difficult. If they are separate cases, but relate to the same incident, you are eligible but it will to a tough sell to the Court and prosecutor. Seek legal counsel.
