My father doesn't approve of my boyfriends age, he thinks we're having sex and we aren't. My mother allows me to date him, however my bf is scared to be charged with satutory rape bc my dad threatened he would do that, my mom has 70% custody of me...
If your father wants to create trouble for your boyfriend, he will find a way. Kissing and holding hands is not illegal but a determined father can be trouble. You obviously recognize that a minor cannot consent to sexual intercourse or any kind of touching of intimate body parts and such and no naked selfies or sending of nude photos over the cell phone or computer. And of course your mother cannot consent to you having sexual interaction of any type with your boyfriend. But your father can still file a police report and raise havoc but it probably will not lead to anything. Having divorced parents is the pits, especially if they disagree over how to raise their child and you get caught in the middle. Good luck in any event.See question
My ex acussed me of violation of a restraining order. The judge put me on probation. Did not go on my records. But this is a control thing with my ex. The case was dismissed and now i have a bill for $160.00 from probation. I do not have to go bac...
No, no and no. If you got put on probation, then you pled to the charges or admitted a violation. Case may have been dismissed after you completed probation, but that does not give you ground to sue. Time to man up and move on. We all make bad decisions in life.See question
Ok I am currently 15 and he is 18 but he is on probation however it will be over in a few months can he go to jail even though he has my parents consent?
Minors cannot consent to sex and your parents cannot consent to you having sex. Your boyfriend risks violating his probation and getting convicted of statutory rape or other sex offenses that might require him to register as a sex offender. Your boyfriend is taking a big risk and could find himself going to prison.See question
Just recently, I was falsely arrested under California Penal Code 148.1. Someone at my school stated I made bomb threats. The accusations against me are absurd. I never made bomb threats. Not only that, the police arrested me and then obtained a s...
Sorry but the PD is the attorney for those who can't afford one. Why would any attorney choose to work free of charge on your case? Your case is no different than any other criminal case in Sacramento County and yes, we have bills and employees to pay as well. And you are right - the PD will not do anything for you until they are appointed. That is how it works.See question
I was arrested on a warrant that was 3 years old. I paid 1500..00 on a hundred thousand. The day of court, all was dismissed and bail exonerated. Do I get bail money back. Or on the remaining 6000. of the 10%. Do I still have to pay
No. You signed a contract and are bound by it. You did not have to bail out of jail, but could have waited in custody for the charges to be dropped. If you don't pay, the bail company will turn it over to a collection agency and then you will be sued for the remainder.See question
Looking for advice for potentially gathering more evidence for a criminal case in North County, San Diego. Last March/April the DA informed me that she could not represent me, case closed 3/2016 or 4/2016. Also looking for help with a civil case.
Your question is confusing, If the DA has declined to prosecute, why would you be gathering evidence for a criminal case since only the DA's office can bring criminal charges? A private citizen cannot file criminal charges against anyone. And the DA does not represent individuals - they represent the people of the State of California so she could not possibly be your attorney. As for civil litigation and a possible civil suit, you need to post under personal injury attorneys. But keep in mind that an attorney will only take such a case if the person you want to sue has sufficient monetary resources, property or a source of funds like an insurance policy. But insurance policies doe not cover intentional acts like child molestation or sexual assault so that might not even work. Good luck in any event.See question
I was convicted for arson and all evidence presented was hearsay and the witnesses two of the witnesses were known fellons and the first witness my childs mother could not keep her story straight and the case was ran concurrent with my family cour...
Sorry but you can't "just take your case back to court" unless you meet certain requirements. If you were convicted of arson at trial, then your attorney has to file a motion for a new trial. If he or she does not, then you have to file an appeal within 60 days if it was a felony conviction. As for "hearsay" a witness statement is evidence and not just hearsay. And even if it were hearsay, there are numerous exceptions to the hearsay rule that the hearsay is almost nonexistent. The fact that a witness is a felon does make not them automatically unbelievable, but is one thing for the jury to consider in assessing their credibility. I am sure if your baby's mama testimony was contradictory, your attorney pointed that out during his cross-examination of her. Sounds like you need to discuss these things with your attorney.See question
After taking a plea deal, I received a charge for misdemeanor embezzlement, $900 in fines and 3 years summary probation. Could, and when, would it be possible to have this charge expunged? I am currently attending college for Aeronautics and I kn...
California does not have a true expungement statute which means an adult criminal record cannot be sealed from public view or destroyed. Then government code does provide that a court clerk shall destroy all criminal files after seven years, but the conviction remains on your permanent criminal record. All you can do, after you have successfully completed probation and paid your fines and fees, is to file a motion for a dismissal under PC Section 1203.4, which means that a notation is added to your criminal file showing that your guilty plea is withdrawn, a not guilty plea is entered and the charges dismissed.See question
I was just wondering if this is illegal so I won't get in trouble if I do it.
I would err on the side of caution and say it is probably illegal pursuant to PC 288.2(a)(2) or PC 647.6(a)(1). In any event, it is a bad idea.See question
Surely, at a national level there is federal spending towards enforcing marijuana laws, so I am wondering if someone can call a phone number or go online to report a crime to have a national federal law enforcement agent come into CA to investigat...
I think you misunderstand our role. We DEFEND people accused of crimes, not snitch on them to the feds so they can arrest our clients. Not sure why it is any of your business when the voters of this state not only approved the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, but now have approved the recreational use of marijuana. You sound like some anti-drug crusader who should really mind your own business unless your of course own business is so boring and banal that you have to butt into everyone else's business. And by the way, there is no such things an "state-Feds".See question
