He is on unsupervised probation on a withheld judgement for a misdemeanor DUI. Did everything asked and paid all fines and fees. Has only 6 weeks left of probation. Then the charges will be dismissed. So he is afraid to possibly run the risk of t...
The answer to your question depends upon the conditions and terms of his probation. If the probation order forbids him to visit any places where the primary source of income is from alcohol, then he needs to wait a few more weeks to be his friends' DD.
It would be very disappointing if your son, being so close to having his case dismissed, makes a judgment error and gets charged with a probation violation. Read what the order says, and if in doubt, err on the side of caution and not being in a position to violate probation.
My 17 year old daughters hit a car at a stop light. No damage to her car but slight damage to the other car's back bumper. This was her first accident and she was shaken up. She gave the other driver her license info and insurance car info but did...
If there was no damage to your daughter's car, then good for her and you because you do not have any repairs to pay for. Regarding the other driver, I see no reason for you file a police report unless your daughter believes that the damage to the other car was more than the statutory limit requiring the reporting of such accidents to police. You should review your automobile insurance contract, however, because there very well may be a provision requiring you to report such incidents to your insurer. In that event, do not breach your contract.See question
So my wife was in a car accident. She side swiped a moving vehicle. She pulled over immediately but could not locate the vehicle she hit. She wasn't sure what color and what the vehicle exactly looked like. She left the scene. The other driver saw...
Your wife needs a criminal defense lawyer ASAP. Based upon the factual scenario that you explained, she likely has some good defenses.
In the mean time, neither you nor your wife should discuss the facts with anyone other than a skilled criminal defense attorney that you consult with.
Good Luck with reaching a favorable outcome.See question
Convicted person served and abided by the terms of sentence, case was effectively closed. Months later review hearing takes place without notifying the victim (myself) and is now shown to be closed pending clerk action?
A review hearing is typically between the prosecutor and judge; and nobody else gets served with notice. Usually, the only way to find out that a review hearing is taking place is by looking online. Regardless, if the defendant successfully completed the sentence, there is nobody to notify because it would be irrelevant to closing the case.
Hope this helps you to understand the process.See question
My ex kicked me out 3 years ago. I took everything i could. I have a pool table my dad made before he passed away. This pool table is very heavy it is made of granite and solid oak definitely worth over 2500$. I have been trying for 3 years to ge...
I agree with Ms. Sinclair that the prosecutor will likely not press charges and that a civil action is a more appropriate way for you to have your pool table returned.
You stated that the person holding the table is your "ex," but you did not specify if there was a marriage. If there was a marriage, you should consult with family law counsel. If not, you should consult with a lawyer who litigates in tort law.

I was taken to a location by two individuals they punched knies into my head fracturing my skull and slitting my throat. Left me for dead
I am glad that you survived the attack. Unfortunately, the statute of limitations for personal injury in Idaho is two years, so it is too late for a civil suit.See question
My wife was assaulted and hit by her boss at work. The incident was witnessed by another employee who has filed a statement. My wife reported the incident to the general manager and then quit her job. She filed a report with the police department ...
Do you believe enough in going after the ex-boss that you will invest your money in a lawsuit? If so, you can hire a lawyer who practices in tort law and sue the ex-boss for damages. You may want to speak with an employment lawyer also, because there are issues to explore there.
If the prosecutor is not willing to prosecute, then there will not be a criminal case.

My minor got charged with frequenting, being with a friend that was charged with possession. What is she looking at. This is her first charge of any kind.
Frequenting is defined in the Idaho Code, but in a nutshell, it means that the police allege that your daughter was in a place where illegal drugs were being used or sold.
You should hire a criminal defense lawyer who has experience in juvenile court. Most of us provide free consultations. Your daughter could face consequences that may interfere with her ability to get financial aid for college, but a skilled criminal defense lawyer who understands how to work with juveniles and the unique rules regarding juvenile charges should be able to work a remedy to avoid any long lasting consequences for a frequenting charge.

You should consult with a skilled personal injury lawyer ASAP. You should also not speak to the insurance company until you consult with a lawyer. Finally, you should not share additional facts on this public forum. You do not want to give the potential defendant anything that they can use against you.
I hope that your son is not injured too severely. Best of luck!See question
The speed limit had been 35 and I saw that the upcoming sign posted was 50. (I drive this route every day) A police officer was sitting off a side street right before the 50 sign (I saw him, didn't think much of it) and I started to accelerate sin...
The police officer is correct that Idaho law provides that the speed limit begins at the sign. While rarely anyone follows that law, it is Idaho law.
With that being said, it does not mean that you should not fight the ticket. Maybe the cop won't show or maybe the prosecutor will offer a lesser infraction. That is your decision to make.
Good luck!See question
