Is there anything in your past history that would limit your ability to be licensed or would limit your ability to receive hospital privileges? Again, I have not had a conviction yet. Only an arrest and awaiting my arraignment.
State licensing boards are allowed to inquire into arrest(s) not leading to a conviction and pending cases. You should hire an attorney to help you with your criminal case and to help with licensing issues. All the bestSee question
A man was drowning in a lake and some teens did nothing but taunt / video tape his Death .
What is wrong is not necessarily illegal and what is illegal is not necessarily wrong. Failing to aid someone in need is legal, if it wasnt walking by a homeless person begging for money would be a crime. Also displaying poor manners, uncouthness, cursing, and taunting maybe wrong in certain contexts but this conduct isn't usually criminal. Traditionally, the criminal law was intended to protect individual rights against encroachment by other individuals or by government. So it's been said, "the right to swing my arms in any direction ends where your nose begins." Of course, exceptions abound and modernly the government criminalizes consensual conduct that is (arguably) harmful only to onself by banning certain drugs, and prohibiting prostitution and gambling. So perhaps in the future people will be jailed for failing to rescue drowning persons or for failing to donate money to homeless beggars. At present such conduct remains legal if morallly questionable.See question

The fact the DA did not file charges before the first tentatively scheduled court date - ie the date which you were ordered to appear at when released from custody - does not mean the DA will not file charges at a later date. The DA has 1 year from date of the alleged incident to file a misdemeanor and at least 3 years to file a felony. It's possible the DA reviewed and "rejected" the case in which case nothing further will happen on your matter but it's also possible the DA hasn't reviewed the case yet, is waiting for more information/evidence from law enforcement, or something else happened. The person to ask about this would be your attorney for some clarity. All the best.See question
Background check for job
The correct answer to a question posed to you as to whether you have been convicted (assuming case hasn't been dismissed pursuant to pc 1203.4) is "yes". However whether or not a 40 year old conviction will show up in a background check of you is a different question. Safest thing to do is to seek a dismissal pursuant to 1203.4 in which case you can legally answer "no" to question of whether you've been convicted. All the best.See question

First, civil restraining orders involve petitions and respondents. Second, as others have pointed out, the party to an action can not serve the other side . Restraining order matters are decided entirely by judges. Judges in civil court, fair or not, see many pro se litigants who are lacking in basic knowledge of law and procedure. You are best advised to hire an attorney to help you through this and will receive better treatment by the judge. If you're in court without a lawyer and the other side has an attorney, you face an extreme disadvantage. All the best in you matter.See question

This is not something that you should handle by yourself. You seem not to understand the ramifications of an arrest not leading to a criminal case filing as opposed a conviction as it relates to your immigration issues. You also seem not to understand the procedure for obtaining a positive outcome in a petition for factual innocence pursuant to pc 851.8. Only in the rarest of cases will the arresting agency support an arrestee's application per 851.8, optimally you would retain an experienced attorney to handle this for you which would require a motion filed in court and served on the District Attorney. That said (state) 851.8 has minimal if any bearing on (federal) immugration issues. Hire an attorney. All the best.See question

The public defender's office is the free or low cost attorney that you can obtain if you are charged with a crime. You have a right to an appointed attorney at government's expense if you can't afford to hire an attorney. If you can afford to hire an attorney, you can choose to hire whichever attorney will agree to work for you. However if you can't afford to hire an attorney, you don't have any choice over who your appointed attorney is. Indigent persons in need of a doctor have more choices in choosing their doctor (anyone doctor that accepts Medicaid) than they do in obtaining an attorney if they're accused of a crime (whichever attorney the government appoints to you). All the best in fighting your case.See question
