    Raymond’s Answer

    Proof of intent is the job of the prosecutor's office. Usually it is not that problematic because it is based on the overt acts of the accused. Cooperating and telling the truth is the best approach to "helping" the prosecutor determine if charges should be filed.

    Raymond’s Answer

    The names may not be released at the discretion of the U.S. Attorney. The names may not be released based on continuing investigation(s) involving other current or potential targets. The names may not be released based on protective orders that are base in the safety of the informants.
    Suffice it to say that there are many reasons to not make public the names. However, if "Associate 1" and/or "Official A" are charged in the future it may easy to connect them with Sr. Rincon-Fernandez. Easy to say and hard to do, "Patience and time will serve you well."

  • My 21 year old friend used fb to ask a 15 year old boy in another country to become his boyfriend. is that a federal sex crime?

    my 21 year old friend used facebook to ask a 15 year old boy in another country to become his boyfriend. he also asked to hug and kiss that boy. is that online solicitation? is that a federal sex crime?

    Raymond’s Answer

    Prosecution is in the eye of the local prosecutor not on a public forum. Federal crimes are prosecuted based on multiple complex factors and are not a simple application of law to facts. Only a local experienced attorney who is fully aware of all the facts and circumstances involved is capable of providing a qualified speculative answer to your inquiry.

  • In Habeas corpus 2254, please give possible answer that would satisfy the questions needed to qualify for relief

    1..the nature of the proceedings 2. Grounds raised 3. Support the facts( briefly)

    Raymond’s Answer

    Legal research is not simple math, it is never 1 + 1 = 2. Legal research is a complex mix of statutes, legislative intent, case law interpretation, and specific case facts and circumstances as subjectively applied by the lawyers for presentation. Then the Judge's subjective interpretation of these and other factors are added to the environment. Your question is easily answered but of questionable value without the input of an experienced attorney.
