My bestfriend talks to me a lot about his current relationship status and what not and asks me a lot of questions that I don't know how to answer. So he's 17 and his girlfriend is 14 who he thinks might be pregnant. He planned on working and takin...
Minors cannot consent to sexual intercourse or any other sexual activity so technically anyone who gets a minor pregnant can be charged with statutory rape. If the minor is under the age of 14, it is child molestation. If there more than a three year difference, it is a felony. So if the 14 year old is pregn.ant, the 17 can be charged with misdemeanor statutory rape and other sex crimes. Even minors can be charged with sex crimes if they have sex with other minors. A teenager getting pregnant is a terrible thing because they have no clue what they are getting into and their lives will be ruined. They most likely will be stuck in a cycle of poverty and their children will be the victims. Ask any teenager who has had a baby.See question

You need to talk to an immigration attorney who can advise you of your likelihood of getting deported.See question
I am on a fixed income and me and his dad need a payment plan my son has court wed 130 in french camp in stockton
I seriously doubt an attorney would offer a payment plan for such serious charges. An attorney could easily cost six figures and once the case is over, there in no incentive to pay the attorney if there is any outstanding fees. Attorneys who do sue for unpaid attorney fees often get sued for non-existent malpractice. Your son will get appointed an attorney who will get paid by the county.See question
I haven't had a conviction in over 2 years I got caught with a gun last week can get suspended sentence for it
Sounds like you might have still been on probation so while I suppose anything is possible, I doubt the DA would offer a suspended sentence, especially if you have a significant criminal history. But obviously your attorney would know more rather than some strangers on the internet who nothing about you or your background. We get these questions fairly frequently and the answer is always the same - every case is different and there is not a one size fits all answer.See question
When I was 17 I was raped by a 28 year old man(this was two years ago) and he is now back in my town and causing me a lot of emotional distress. He also is still displaying the weird, deranged behaviors so I am worried he may do this again to some...
No physical evidence needed. The law in California is that if the complaining witness is believed, that is enough for a conviction. No further evidence is needed. I would agree that you should seek a restraining order. File your police report, explain why you waited to say anything and see if the DA wishes to prosecute.See question
I signed a bond for my son to get out of jail and he was arrested again do i have to pay the bond
Yes you have to pay the bond. You signed a contract with the bail agency and like any other contract, they fulfilled their part of the bargain by bailing your son out. So you still have to pay the premium and fulfill your end. Otherwise they simply turn it over to a collection agency.See question

Sorry but this post is confusing and unintelligible. If he is a sentenced you can't get him out. If he is facing new charges, he will be assigned an attorney. Not much else to tell you.See question
Hello, I'm applying for Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) license and I'm very worried that my criminal record have an impact on my qualification. First offense happened in 2010, when I was caught stealing from a store. I went to courts, paid all ...
You will be required by the State to provide a full factual narrative statement as to all of the circumstances and facts underlying your prior convictions. Be fully forthcoming and scrupulously objective and honest in that statement. With two prior convictions, you may face some difficulty in obtaining the license. If you are denied, file the Notice of Defense ASAP (simple form requiring just your name and address) because the window of time is very short. Then call a skilled and experienced professional/occupational licensing attorney to assist you.
A full admin appeal of a license denial is a lengthy process -- 18+ months, and very expensive. But a skilled attorney whose judgment is known and respected by State agency staff can likely negotiate a resolution for you. You may need to start with a probationary license for the first 2 years or so.
Here is the relevant excerpt from the applicable statute called the Dental Hygiene Licensure Act
Conviction of a Crime
Section 1950 (a)
Conviction of a Crime
Maximum Penalty: Revocation
Minimum Penalty: Revocation stayed with probation depending on nature and severity of crime.
1. Standard Conditions (1-13)
2. Actual Suspension (14)
There is sound and reliable information for you in the " Dental Hygiene Committee of California Recommended Guidelines for Disciplinary Orders and Conditions of Probation" here:

Is any sexual conduct illegal between the 16 year old and 18 year old? What if there is parental consent? Is there any way a relationship between 16 and 18 year olds can be legal? And to what extent?
No, no, and no. Minors cannot consent to having sex UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES and their parents cannot permit it either. If it does occur, the 18 year old can be charged with statutory rape and other sexual offenses. If the parents allow it, they can be charged with child endangerment. Cool your jets or someone is going to need a lawyer.See question
So I am curious to know different opinions from other lawyers. My brother yesterday just had his premilinary hearing and has been under custody since November of 2016 for first attempt murder. He has no criminal record and he is not involved in an...
All the lawyers have provided excellent answers but how do you mistakenly attempt to murder someone? And if a mayhem charge was added that means that a body part was cut off or a person was seriously disabled, disfigured or had their body part rendered useless or the person had an eye put out or had their nose, ear or lip slit. And a 245(a)(1) means that a weapon other than a gun was used to injure the person. Not sure what the confusion is.See question
