Do Mandatory Minimum Sentence Laws Work?
Do Mandatory Minimum Sentence Laws Work?
The first answerer gives you the 'standard' answer--the ONLY solution to crime is punishment, and if that doesn't work, MORE punishment.
Mandatory minimum sentences are part of a much bigger program that's been going on for decades now, to take power away from defendants and judges and give it to police and prosecutors. The effect of this whole program has been to erode the BIll of Rights, until GW Bush could simply ignore basic principles like habeas corpus and due process. We have prisoners today who have been in prison for years & years and have never actually been charged with a crime!
Prison overcrowding has been a serious problem in many states. We've doubled sentences for most crimes, and then when that didn't work we doubled them again. The Fed. Govt. banned overcrowding prisons, so now when a minor criminal, like a 'casual' drug user, gets a mandatory minimum sentence, and there isn't room for him in an existing state prison, a more serious criminal is released.
According To Adoption Laws In Illinois?
If Child-Support Is Failed To Be Paid, Can The Child Be Adopted By A New Parent, Have The Birth Certificate Changed To State The Name Of The Adoptive Parent, And The Child'S Last Name Be Changed To The Adoptive Parent'S Name, Without The Birth Father Signing Over His Rights? Say The Birth Father Is Not Paying Child Support (Because He Is Incarcerated). Once He Acquires A Job, If He Still Fails To Pay Support, Could His Child Be Adopted By Another Man, Without Him Singing Away His Rights As A Father?
In order for the adoption to happen, the biological fathers parental rights must be terminated. It is POSSIBLE for the court to terminate rights without his consent, but not easy. It may not be technically legal, but there is a practical method of convincing a 'deadbeat dad' to allow an adoption. If he does not cooperate, the mother has option except to AGGRESSIVELY pursue enforcement of the child support order. If he allows the adoption, she has no incentive to do so. This could be considered blackmail, and thus illegal, but the court may chose not to notice in the best interest of the child.
I Need Quick Paralegal/Legal Advice?
I Have An Issue With A Local Business (Internet Service Provider). They Sent Me An Overdue Bill For A Service I Have Received In The Past, But They Never Charged Me For It Before, But Now When I Wanted To Upgrade To A Better Service They Offer, They Noticed That They Never Charged Me For 2 Years (And They Sent Me A Big Bill). So I Need Quick Advice What Is Best To Do, Since They Said They Will Refer This Case To A Collection Agency. Am I Responsible To Pay This Bill Or Was It Their Mistake? Should I Hire A Lawyer Or Paralegal? In Case A Lawyer, What Kind Of Lawyer (What Specialty)?
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER "hire a paralegal". This is coming from a paralegal. We are not supposed to give legal advice or practice law. A true paralegal is an individual that works under the supervision of an attorney. Hire one of these so-called "paralegals' and you are going to get what you paid for. More trouble.
From the basic information you give, you owe that money. Honestly is ALWAYS the best policy next to getting a written contract. It sounds like you knew you weren't being charged for the Internet and just never informed them.
The only way this will play out is you calling the ISP and trying to make a payment plan without them going into collections. There is no legal course for you. The business provided a service that you admit using and not paying for. It was your responsibility to inform them that your bill was incorrect. Because you did not, you owe them that money. Try your best to work it out with them directly. Tell them that you want to pay, you want to avoid collections and if they are willing to work a deal out with you. If not, you can hire an attorney to try and "negotiate" a better deal, but odds are, you will end up paying the attorney more than what you owe the ISP provider.
So, yes. You are responsible for this debt, and no. You will more than likely NOT be able to find an attorney to take this case due to the fact that there is no way to win a clear cut case of you knowingly receiving Internet service for free and choosing not to inform them they were incorrectly charging you.
Lawyer Or Public Defender For Felony Case?
Im Facing These Charges 11359 Hs Possession Of Marijuana For Sale, 11360(A) Hs Sale Or Transportation Of Marijuana, 11350(A) Hs Possession Of A Controlled Substance. Well Heres The Deal I Got Pulled Over By Cops And They Did Not Ask Permission To Search My Car Which Had An Ounce Of Marijuana And A Couple Of Baggies. My Attorney Is Charging Me 5 Thousand For This Case, Do You Think Its Worth It?
No...and public defenders are lawyers.
Public defenders are usually some of the best trial attorneys that you can find. They have tons of experience. Unless your private attorney is a former public defender or prosecutor, he simply will not have as much experience as a PD....
Now, if he IS a former PD or prosecutor, then it may be worth it. He will have all the experience, plus more time to work on the case...
Do You Love Our Family Court System Like I Do?
Opinions On This Article,
I Find It Insane.
The family courts are engulfed in the battered / women's movement. They have an agenda and there's nothing fair when ideology like this is involved.
How can a man ever get impartial treatment in a court system that is heavily influenced?
How can a police officer even make an honest decision with Must Arrest & Must Prosecute laws? It's much safer to treat every situation as if the man is capable of killing his wife, look for anything to arrest him, automatic restraining orders and after all this, a court system is suppose to treat him fairly? The whole ideology presumes guilt and convicts without a trial.
Even more scary is the fact that a woman's statements are considered credible immediately after a fight with her husband when emotions are high and swift vengeance is taken.
It's totally crazy.
Personal Injury Law Suite Question About A Lawyer?
I Have 2Ruptured Disc N Never Damage N My Back From A Slip N Fall At Dept Store I Have Did Several Months Of Therapy Walk With Use Of A Cane Now N Spinal Injections My I Am Not A Good Candidate For Surgery My Doc Says Lawyer Has Filed A Suit Yet He Cannot Tell Me How Much He Is Asking For As Far As A Settlement Is This The Way Lawyers Do Things Now?
Yes, Unfortunately lawyers are known to be very greedy and at times deceiving. Usually they ask for a good portion of the overall settlement which can be as high as 40%. or more. Let's suppose it goes to settlement court and you are entitled to $ 1.000.000. The lawyer will take his agreed upon share of that sum. I am not sure about the actual court costs if they are deducted from your remaining share. The running joke is lawyers after an accident with injury are all chasing the ambulance. This type of court procedures are the most profitable for any law office. Phone any injury law office and ask questions.
