    The allegation could be Criminal Sexual Conduct in the 4th degree. This is a felony punishable by up to 2 years in prison. Do not let your brother talk to anyone else other than a criminal defense attorney. Your family should consult with an experienced lawyer ASAP.

    There is only one reasonable option for you, hire the best lawyer you can and let him or her try to convince the judge not to lock you up. No one wants to go to jail and the best way to avoid it is with the best representation possible. Other than hiring a good lawyer ASAP and following that person's advice, there is NOTHING more you can do.

  • Can I have 2 misdemeanors expunged from my record? If so, how can I go about doing it?

    Randall’s Answer

    It is possible to remove two misdemeanors now. You would have to go to each of the courts where you were convicted and separately request the convictions be set aside. If you lose because of inadequate pleadings or for some other reason, the judge may be reluctant to grant relieve ever again. It is best to do it right the first time and having a good lawyer prepare your paperwork and argue the motions gives you the best chance of succeeding.

    Randall’s Answer

    Depending on what the felony was that you were convicted of, you should be able to apply for a CCW permit. Certain felony convictions prohibit you from possessing, using, transporting, selling, purchasing, carrying, shipping, receiving, or distributing a firearm. If this applies to you, you can have your rights restored. You should contact an attorney to assist you with getting your firearm rights restored. The attached link should provide further information for you to review. Please feel free to contact my office if you have any further questions.

    was told park rules have changed by neighbor 2 years ago about motorcycles. got letter from manager to remove motorcycle may3 on may 4 manager told neighbor I could keep motorcycle. duhh I need to know if I have any legal rights. im confused

    Randall’s Answer

    When you signed your rental agreement with the park you should have received a list of park rules and regulations or also commonly known as bylaws. If you did not receive a copy of these you should be able to get them from the park manager. The rules regarding motorcycles should be listed and if they are not you may wish to contact an attorney regarding what actions should be taken.
