Legal Information, I Need Help?
I Had Sex With A Girl And Recorded It Without Her Knowing And I Showed My Friends And Then Deleted It, She Found Out I Showed People And Now She Wants To Press Charges, The Texts I Have Send Her Prove I Showed People And That There Was A Video, What Charges Can She Press On Me Or Can She Not At All? Need Help Asap
it depends on where you are, how old you and she were at the time..
the circumstances.. ( drugs/alcohol.. obviously voluntary by both parties .. did you edit the recording her house or someplace where she expected privacy.. did she specifically ask about anyone finding out.. )
how badly her reputation is damaged, does she still get hassled, and is she changing school / jobs / moving away.. phych help?
You can be charged with all kinds of stuff, but it depends on the jurisidiction, everyplace has some different laws
-- violation of privacy, violation of federal wiretapping
-- sexual offense / lifetime registration as a sex offender
-- statutory rape, sexual assault (just talking or touching can be assault) - the act of sex may not be the crime..
-- unlawful gains did you profit, either in reputation or with tangible 'stuff' when you showed this; did she lose reputation or 'stuff'
-- besmirched reputation / slander - why did you show it, even truth can be a crime if shared for malicious reasons
-- loss of future cohabitation/income .. her social background; was she in an arranged marraige that is now ruined, has her church (or equivalent) made her an outcast,.. does this movie make her less likely to be employed or less likely to marry the man of her intent?
like I said - every place has different laws and variations. If you are in a really strict community, (or if she sues you from a really strict place) .. and if she can get a really good lawyer.. they can charge you with anything except the Lindbergh kidnapping. (old-time reference)
-- teens are getting branded a lifetime sex offenders for just 'sexting'.
- that guy in NJ/Rutgers University taped his room mate having sex. The room mate later committed suicide. The guy who taped it already got expelled from school ( means all student loan money was wasted- still needs to be repaid) , did a month in jail (20 days + good behavior) ; but the criminal prosecutor is still trying to get more charges, and the family wants to sue for wrongful death.
If you have already been contacted by police or legal officials, then don't delete or destroy anything. that can be considered 'spoilation'. If you intentionally destroy evidence you know the authorities ( police, court, any legal official) wants, then the other person can say anything they want and you can't prove you didn't do even worse things. Plus you get more charges for destroying evidence. If nobody from the court/police has spoken to you, it may not be a concern.
If nothing else, you should apologize - genuinely, and do what you can to put a stop to all the gossip and sharing of files/ texts for good.
Remember that 'deleted' files can usually be recovered if enough smarts / resources are spent trying to recover them. Nothing is 100% non-recoverable.. just really-really hard to recover.
Get a lawyer if you haven't already done so, but don't make a big public deal out of it. Once the news hears what you have done, you will be branded as a horrible person.
(I'm not sure - but I'm not judging you )
What Forms Does The Superior Court Clerk Commonly Provide? For Family Law?
Summons? Sheriff'S Entry Of Service? Verification? Acknowledgement Of Service?
Trying To Find Out Which Forms I Need To Bring To The Clerk To File An Entire Petition For Legitimation. I'M In Georgia, But Anything You Know Will Be Appreciated
You will have to ask the clerk's office, read the rules of court, and/or find a manual for filing legitimation petitions in your local library or legal library, if it is open to the public. You can ask a lawyer, of course, but I assume you can't afford one.
There is a form that must be filed with any pleading filed in Superior Court, which you can find at the link below. No other forms appear to be available online. In most courts, the clerk provides you with the summons when the case is filed. Be sure to keep copies of all documents before you file. You will receive a docket number on the summons, and that must be placed on all other documents. The summons will probably have a section for the rest of the service-related information, which are alternative ways to serve the defendant/respondent, except for the verification.
My Friend Is In A Really Bad Marriage Right Now Her Husband Has Been Known To Hit Her And Be Very Mentally Abusive. She Came By Today And Ask Me To Go To Her County And File For Divorce With Her Because He Has Been Taking A Flash Light And A Gun And Searching Every Inch Of The House Everyday Like Ten Times A Day. He Is On Drugs Or Something But She Cant Even Sleep So She Is Staying With Me For A While. What Would Be The Best Way For Her To Go About This She Is Scared That He Will Try To Come Over Here And Hurt Her And My Family. He Is A Pshyco Andvery Capiable Of It. So My Question Is What Should She Do And Can She File For Divorce In A Different County From Where They Live. Will A Restraining Order Really Work For Her If She Lives Here. Please Any Advice Would Be Great.
My advice is both for her safety and yours - monday morning, go to your police department and ask about filing an order of protection.. usually one can be filed at the courthouse and can be granted immediately.. at my courthouse there was a "legal advocate" who helped fill out the papers and stood with me before the judge. I was in and out with one in a matter of hours... Then she will need to go to the police dept where she lived, where she works, and any other places listed in the order of protection and have them make a copy of it to keep on file. She needs to keep this with her at all times.
Immediately she needs to contact a Women's abuse shelter (listed in the phone book) and go there.. they have security and a safe place for her.. trust me, these women know how to provide for her safety and to help her with counseling, and help her get back on her feet.
But, she needs to leave your home. I know it's harsh, but many times husbands fly off and attack the people that are housing the wife because in his mind, if you weren't there, she'd be home and it's your fault. You don't want us to read about your family on the news.. you've seen it yourself too often.. Be her friend.. but don't risk your family for her..
And, the women's shelter is experienced in how to help her with this.. Best of luck and you, your family, and your friend are in my prayers.
Can I Become A Lawyer In Ga, With A Felony ?
Hello I Was Wondering If I Could Become A Lawyer In Ga If I Had A Felony Back When I Was 21 (28 Now) In The State Of Va.
They Were 2 Class C Felonies For Having The Possesion Of Stolen Items. Would Any 1 Know?
Here is something I know a lot about...I had a criminal record when I became a lawyer...
Felonies make it harder...but they don't completely preclude it...I'm assuming that you haven't yet started law school, so you have some time to work on it...Here is my advice...
The first thing I would do is get a therapist...start going to "work out" your issues...whether you need it or not...this will be something you can tell the character and fitness committee...
In addition, volunteer....a lot....do a bunch of community service activities...and everyplace that you do these activities...get to know the people in charge...get them to like you so you can get references from them...again...this will help a lot later...
Finally...absolutely...pay any restitution that you haven't already paid...make sure that you keep your nose completely clean...vote in every election...
One last tip...if you can get those convictions expunged...do it...if not...that's okay...but it's better if they're expunged...
In any case, when planning your future, expect not to be licensed for at least a year or two out of law school...this means you're going to want to get employment that doesn't require a license...a clerkship or associate with a firm, etc...
Are There Any Pro Bono Attorneys Or Family Law In The State Of Georgia?
I Am Trying To Find Out If There Are Any Pro Bono Attorneys In The State Of Georgia That Take On Child Custody And Visitation Cases?
I Have Searched On The Web, But The Only Thing I Can Find Is The Legal Aid Office. They Say They Are Only Income Eligible And I'M Not Sure We Qualify. On The Other Hand We Can'T Seem To Find A Family Law Attorney That Is Any Where Near Affordable. I Am Getting Prices Of $5000 To Start, $15,000 For The Entire Case Procedure. Who Has That Kind Of Money????
Any Help Is Appreciated, Thanks For Your Time! ~Take Care~
Any attorney is able to do a case pro-bono, it's their choice, but you won't find one that will do it unless it's for a really good cause or to prove a legal point that is important to them.
Call the guy that quoted you $5000 and ask him if that's the best he can do, and if he'll take payments. Scape together as much as you can for a down payment and pony up.
Attorneys are all about the Benjamin's.
If You Were A Lawyer And?
You Had A Choice To Make Because You Found Yourself Unemployed. Would You:
Volunteer With An Criminal Defense Firm And Get All Those Criminals Off And Earn Enough Respect To Start Getting Paid For That, For A New Job; Or
Collect Unemployment Until It Runs Out And Then Work At Home Depot With Ged Graduates Who Label You As A Loser Once They Learned You Are A Lawyer; Or
Go On Welfare, Food Stamps, Like The Rest Of The Poor?
Or Go Into More Debt By Borrowing All Kinds Of Money (If You Can Get A Loan) To Open An Office And Represent Locals Who Can'T Afford To Pay Your Overhead For The Week Let Alone The Month.
Well, this is a crazily hypothetical question. I would go with door #1 and do criminal defense cases until I got enough money to try choice number 4 with the pro bono office. Attorneys supposedly have no prejudice and believe felons or alleged felons have the same rights to legal representation as anyone else, and often can pay better. Many lawyers have worked both sides of the street. An ex-Federal Prosecutor from Illinois who received national fame for throwing organized crime figures and bribe taking officials into prison is getting 6 figure fees for defending the same lawbreakers today.
