I went to Wendy's and got their 4 for $4, which included a drink. I asked for light ice. I got all the way to the point where I was finishing up my drink, and it was still rattling; at this point, there should haven't have been any ice, so I opene...
This is not a criminal defense question: more a question of personal injury(did you sustain any injury, other than being grossed out).
While your description certainly is gross, one has to sustain some injury(like getting sick, or a diagnosable mental trauma) to have a legal cause of action against anyone.
Consult a personal injury lawyer, if, indeed, you think you have been injured. Good luck
I called police against my fiancee for mental health help. The police took her I was under impression she wasn't being arrested but they charged her with city assault DV. I have been trying to get the charges dropped because I was never assaulte...
This is not a criminal issue as much as a contract law case involving a bonding company.
My experience is that bonding companies will do everything within the boundaries of their contract to get their money/collateral if they have to go after a person that they wrote a bond for.
This is because they are a guarantor to the court, not to you, regarding the criminal defendant's presence.
The only guarantee you have is that the bonding company will not charge you more than 10% of the face amount of the bond IF, and only if, the defendant makes all court appearances and is otherwise law-abiding. The bonding company co. is within its rights to collect collateral, and charge for any remaining balance not covered by the collateral.See question
After a heated argument with his mom my son yelled the C word he says twice the neighbors say four times out of his upstairs bedroom window. The neighbors daughters age 7 and 9 were in there back yard playing. My son says he was venting out his be...
In addition to the other spot on lawyers' answers, you need to employ an attorney on your son's behalf because he has a viable defense, based on your son not having any specific directed intent at the 7 & 9 year olds. Good luck.See question
I got caught stealing alcohol for my first time today and was charged with minor in possession and theft in the third degree. This is my first ever offense.
If you are under 18, then the juvenile guidelines are 0-30 days detention with eligibility for diversion possible.
If you are 18+ but less than 21, then a previous answer gave you the maximum possible jail sentence, which is very doubtful for a first offense: GETA LAWYER TO HELP YOU. Good luck.
So my dui was settled to reckless. So I did the list of what I needed to do within the first week of getting my conviction. the appointment was moved over a month out and I thought the drug and assesment place would have told my probation officer ...
The Court will not prevent you from going to CA. You will eventually be allowed to go. But the Court won't allow the move until you get the assessment done, the P.O. gets & approves the assessment, and you get enrolled in equivalent programming wherever you intend to move. A hassle for sure, but you should not simply 'pick up and move' without Court and P.O. approval. If you do, you will be facing 'non-compliance' and possible punishment from the Court. An attorney can help you with this process.See question
Say for example if someone went on a bad internet site such as 4chan and without knowing was accidentally referred to images of a questionable nature such as teen pornography, I'll give an example, my friend went on 4chan and he was told to go on ...
First, assuming this person is your 'friend' and not you, then your hypothetical can only render you 'hypothetical' responses, and, consistent with a previous answer to you, you need to be very guarded about what you discuss on a public site.
Second, a 'nudism' search that results in images of nude underage children is usually NOT considered child pornography, since the children are likely not engaged in sexually explicit activity( time honored legal argument ).
Third, forensically connecting the computer holder to a known ISP address where child pornography exists is the evidentiary standard in most courts for a successful child pornography prosecution. 'Searches' usually are not the standard for child pornography prosecutions.
Fourth, viewing child porn is a different crime that capturing and retaining images. There has to be evidence that the person actually 'clicked', i.e., viewed a graven image. Your 'friend' obviously needs to be careful.
I was pulled over for a traffic violation. I was arrested for dwls and the detective called for a drug dog
You are going to need a lawyer to challenge the stop of your vehicle. If the stop was, indeed, legal, then, as other lawyers have stated, the 'domino effect' of 'one thing leading to another' occurs(meaning yes, the officer can get a dog).See question
I received a call from my original public defender stating that the courts want me to appear to be resentenced and possibly do an additional four years. They feel they did not sentence me correctly in 2012. I have already spent my time that we agr...
Adding to the previous answer, the reason the answer is 'yes' is your original sentence may have been miscalculated under the applicable sentencing guidelines. However, you may have a due process argument, based on the factors that you describe, to avoid further incarceration, particularly if the Department of Corrections corroborates that you were compliant on probation/ community corrections, so you need to be in immediate contact with your attorney. That attorney may ask for an exceptional sentence that would avoid further incarceration. Don't simply avoid your situation. Good luck.See question
It recently came to my attention that I have an active warrant in King County. Apparently I missed a court date back in 2011 to review a minor case (misdemeanor) stemming from 2006. I currently live in California, but need to address this asap...
Like Mr. Lawrence said, you are going to have to come back at least once. UNLESS the case was never completely resolved, such as by a 'stipulated order of appearance', which is often used in WA municipal court cases. With a ten year old case, if it is indeed unresolved, the prosecutor MIGHT allow you to simply forfeit an agreed amount of $$$ to cover the warrant fee and a bail forfeiture amount. Of course, this is dependent on whether the case is still legally unresolved by a sentencing disposition, and whether the judge wll allow a bail forfeiture for the offense(some will, some won't).
A lawyer who has worked in your court( Kent Muni??) will be able to let you know whether this option is available to you. Good luck.
I was charged $100 for living room furniture that is not mine. The furniture in the living room was there since my move-in date August 2014. The Assistant Manager stated that I need to contact the other 3 roommates to ask them to take responsibil...
This is a civil question, and is probably governed by the terms of your lease.
You may end up 'holding the bag' for others-impossible to answer your question unless you provide your contract for review with an attorney.
I will notify to repost, such as in a landlord tenant forum. Good luck.
