What Is A Felony, Is It Not Paying A Traffic Ticket? How Do U Know If Someone Has 1 On Their Record?
What Is The Definition Of A Felony? Where Can U Check To See If There Is One? What Types Of Things Are Generally Considered Felonies? Same Question For A Misdemeanor ?
The term felony is a term used in common law systems for very serious crimes, whereas misdemeanors are considered to be less serious offenses. It is principally used in criminal law in the United States legal system.
In the United States, a felony is intended to be the higher category of criminal offenses, as distinct from a misdemeanor, which is intended to be the less serious category of offenses (although some states have done away with the felony/misdemeanor classification; for example, New Jersey designates offenses as first degree through fourth degree. A third degree offense is punishable by six months to eighteen months in jail. Some states also subdivide felonies into "classes", such as Class A through Class J or Class 1 through Class 7 felonies).
What is a felony and who commits one?
Crimes commonly considered to be felonies include, but are not limited to: aggravated assault and/or battery, arson, burglary, some instances of drug possession (dependent on the jurisdiction, often possession over a certain weight, based on the type of drug, is held to indicate intent to sell or distribute), embezzlement, grand theft, treason, espionage, racketeering, robbery, murder, rape, cannabis cultivation and fraud. A third offense for driving under the influence is also a felony in most states.
"The common law divided participants in a felony into four basic categories: (1) first-degree principals, those who actually committed the crime in question; (2) second-degree principals, aiders and abettors present at the scene of the crime; (3) accessories before the fact, aiders and abettors who helped the principal before the basic criminal event took place; and (4) accessories after the fact, persons who helped the principal after the basic criminal event took place.
In some states, felonies are also classified according to their seriousness. A murder is also counted as a felony and can result in a death penalty or a life sentence. The number of classifications and the corresponding crimes vary by state and are determined by the legislature. Usually, the legislature also determines the maximum punishment allowable for each felony class.
A felony may be punishable with imprisonment for more than one year or death in the case of the most serious felonies, such as murder, treason, and espionage; indeed, at common law when the British and American legal systems divorced in 1776, felonies were crimes for which the punishment was either death or forfeiture of property. In modern times, felons can receive punishments which range in severity; from probation, to imprisonment, to execution for premeditated murder or other serious crimes. In the United States felons often face additional consequences, such as the loss of voting rights in many states, exclusion from certain lines of work, prohibition from obtaining certain licenses, exclusion from purchase and possession of firearms or ammunition, and ineligibility to run for or be elected to public office. In addition, some states consider a felony conviction to be grounds for an uncontested divorce. These, among other losses of privileges not included explicitly in sentencing, are known as collateral consequences of criminal charges. Finally if a felon is not a U.S. citizen that person may be subject to deportation after sentencing is complete.
Civil sanctions imposed on United States citizens convicted of a felony in many states include the loss of competence to serve on a grand or petit jury or to vote in elections even after release from prison. While controversial, these disabilities are explicitly sanctioned by the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, a Reconstruction-era amendment that deals with permissible state regulation of voting rights.

Assigning Power of Attorney
If you are ready to create a power of attorney relationship, then you will need to get the necessary power of attorney forms. The form you choose will depend on what state you live in and the type of power of attorney you are creating. You will need to fill out the power of attorney form in its entirety and then sign it in the presence of a notary public. It is essential that you do this correctly, or you could face a situation where you think you have a power of attorney in place, yet you legally do not. Talk to a lawyer to help you choose the correct form. You can also find power of attorney forms that were created by lawyers for sale on the internet. Just be sure that you choose one created by a licensed attorney so that you know it is a legally valid document. You will name the individual you have chosen as your agent on the form. The document remains valid until you create a new power of attorney, revoke it, or die. While not all states require this, filing the document with the County Recorder’s Office will make it official. Be sure to get a certified copy of the document for yourself and for your Agent in case legal questions come up in the future.
i got the forms for power of attorney from my bf's doctor, u can get them from the hospital, court house or social security office
If You As An Attorney Had To Chose To Practice Criminal And Family Law In Either California Or Texas...?
Which One Would You Chose And Why. I'Ve Heard That Attorneys In California Working Solo Make More Money And Are Happier Than Those In Texas. I Don'T Know.
I'm not an attorney but I do live in California. I am here due to circumstances beyond my control. I would get up from this computer, walk to my car and drive at the maximum legal speed to "Bum Fvck Egypt' if I could swing it. If you value anything like personal liberties forget California!!! I have been in 48 of the 50 states and a number of foreign countries. Aside from Massachusetts and New York I have never seen worse. I have reported power theft with no results. I have reported an habitual drunk driver with no results. A cop let a 16 year old thug steal his patrol car and kill two senior citizens. About half of our prison population is comprised of illegal aliens. Our legislators routinely spend twice what the state collects in taxes. One city has "Green Police". I have to go to City Hall this week and beg for a permit to trim my trees. A school crossing guard was killed by a motorist doing over twice the speed limit; the cure "Speed Bumps", enforcing the law was never even considered. We have a supreme court that routinely overrules the voters. And, the list goes on and on. There was even talk about some sort of toilet paper limit. If you come, do so on a round-trip ticket because if you are any sort of individual you will want to leave in very short order.
Now, on the other hand, if you are a very left wing type of individual who wants and expects your government to make every decision in your life you will love it here.
Which Is More Stressful: Handling Workers' Comp Claims Or Handling Bodily Injury Claims?
Please Explain Why You Made Whichever Selection You Made.
Any claims job is going to be stressful. That's the nature of the beast. The stresses felt by a WC adjuster and a P&C adjuster may be slightly different but I can tell you now...one's not worse than the other. They are two completely different animals. You're trying to compare horses to zebras.
I am a P&C adjuster. I choose that because the first claims job I was hired to do and subsequently trained to do was handle P&C claims. Had my first job been as a WC adjuster, then that would have been my specialty.
If you are looking for a low stress job...stay away from any type of insurance claims handling.
I Need Legal Advice :My Co-Worker Is Discriminated Against By Our Manager And Is On Grounds For Termination?
The Reason Why She Might Be Terminated Is Because A Supervisor Told Her That Someone Was Stealing So My Co-Worker Went Outside To Check And Went To The Lady'S Car And Noticed It Was The Wrong Lady And Told Her She Was Very Sorry That She Made A Mistake. Mind You She Says She Never Accused Her Of Stealing, Or Checked Her Bags Or Even Made Her Get Out Of Her Car. She Simply Went Up To Her Car And Saw That This Lady Had Bags Of Stuff So She Let It Go. Now This Lady Freaked Out Called Corporate On My Co-Worker Wants Wants Her Fired And She'S Being Very Persistent. The District Manager Came In And Told My Co-Worker That It'S Out Of His Hands At This Point And The Lawyers Of Our Corporation Have To Handle It. She Made Everything Into A Big Deal And Told Them My Co-Worker Almost Got Her Fired And Accused Her Of Stealing. Which My Co-Worker Says Is False. The Problem Is She'S Most Likely To Get Fired And This Whole Situation Is My Co-Workers Word Against A Customers. I Was Just Wondering What Are My Co-Workers Rights As Far As Getting Fired? The Only Thing I'M Worried About Is That She'S 63 And Has Health Problems And Literally Cannot Survive Without A Job. My Manager Has Also Been Treating Her Very Badly By Cutting Her Hours And By Basically Bullying Her And Threatening To Fire Her Constantly. Right Now My Co-Worker Is Living With Out Heat And Basically Going Without Many Necessities Because Her Hours Have Been Cut Drastically.
From My Experience She Is One Of The Most Hardworking, Loyal Employees Of This Company And Does Not Deserve To Be Fried Or Tormented By My Manager. She Is An Honest Person And I Know That The Incident With The Customer Was An Honest Mistake And This Whole Thing Is Completely Unfair. I'M Doing Some Legal Research For Her Mainly Because She Doesn'T Have Money For A Lawyer And Because She Doesn'T Have A Computer. I Just Want To Make Sure She Has Enough Money For Her Basic Necessities Including Her Living Saving Medications. I Really Want To Help Her, She Is Such An Amazing Person And Does Not Deserve To Go Through This Heartache. Someone Please Help
My suggestion is that you contact 9 to 5, a national organization for working women. If she has some evidence of age (or other) discrimination, that would be helpful to her case.
