Some Legal Advice Please And Thank You.?
I Am 18 Years Of Age, And Before This I Have Never Been In Any Trouble With The Law. I Was Arrested For Lying To A Police Officer And Lying On Legal Documents. I Am In The State Of Georgia, And I Lied Because I Was Robbed Of Marijuana And I Told The Police I Was Robbed Of Money. I Called The Police Because I Was In Need Of Medical Attention. I Can Not Afford A Lawyer, And I Am Not Fully Aware Of My Rights. I Was Wondering How Serious Of A Crime This Is, And What Can I Do To Keep From Going To Jail?
Chances are fairly good you would not get any jail time for this offense. Frankly, jails are over crowded and they simply don't have room for a first time, non-violent offender.
As far as your rights? You have the right to remain silent. Exercise that right and don't discuss this with anyone. If you are charged (meaning you get a court date), you will go to court and plead "not guilty." Then you will probably have the opportunity to apply for a public defender. If you get an envelope from the prosecutor's office that offers you something like a "deferred prosecution" you should take the paperwork to the public defender's office and apply for assistance. You need to fully understand the ramifications of pleading guilty to this offense.
That you will not do any jail time is the least of your worries - long term, that is. Providing false information to a police office and lying on a legal document is a crime of moral turpitude. This will have serious and potentially life long ramifications for you. You will probably NEVER be able to get a job that requires any type of security clearance or background investigation. In a he said/she said situation in court (small claims court, divorce court, etc.), your word will simply not be good enough.
Need Attorney Advice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
I Am 16 Years Old And I Buy And Resell Electronics On Craigslist.
I Bought A Laptop From Someone That Was Password Locked And Had No Charger.
I Got A Charger, Reset The Password And Listed It On Craigslist.
Apparently I Sold It Back To The Original Owner Who Had It Stolen From Him.
A Few Hours Later As I Am Driving I Get Pulled Over And Arrested For Possession Of Stolen Property.
I Explained The Story To The Cops And I Voluntarily Let Them Search My Car And I Return The Money For The Laptop.
The Police Said That They Put In The Report That I Co-Operated.
Now I Am Faced With Trafficking Stolen Property In The First Degree.
I Still Had The Address Of The Guy I Bought It From And I Gave That To The Police.
My Court Date Is In 2 Weeks, In The Mean Time I Am Sure That There Will Be An Investigation.
Now, My Question Is That Should I Pay For An Attorney Or Will A Public One Be Enough?
I Also Heard That You Can Get Your Record Sealed At 18?
I Just Need Some Advice. Thanks Ahead Of Time.
It sounds like you are doing your best to cooperate fully and didn't intend to do anything improper. Unfortunately, I believe that the stolen property charge is a strict liability crime, that is, one that applies regardless of your intentions. Nevertheless, your good will can only help you.
I do think that you should plan to find an attorney. If you qualify for a public defender, they generally are quite good, although your mileage may vary based on where you live. Most public defenders have a great deal of courtroom experience and often are quite skilled. I can't pretend to give you expert legal advice, but it doesn't sound like your case is terribly complex. You shouldn't go it alone, but a solid public defender probably will be able to do right by you.
I'm sorry that you're stuck in an unfortunate position here, and I hope it works out all right. Good luck.
Can Visitation Rights Be Revoked?
I Have Sole Custody Of My 2 Children And My Ex Has Visitation Rights. He Gets Every Other Holiday, Every Other Weekend, And 30 Days In The Summer. If He Has Not Utilized These Rights For The Past Year, Do I Still Have To Block Off My Schedule Just In Case He Decides He Wants To See Them. He Is $5000 Behind In Child Support And Is Currently Not Paying Any Support. He Was Also Suppose To Provide Medical And Life Insurance And Does Not. Recently He Decided To Move Across The Country And Now Wants The Children For The Summer.
Visitation can't be revoked due to child support non-payment or due to a history of not exercising visitation. It can only be revoked if the child is in danger when with the other parent.
It can be modified. It can be set to supervised only. You'll need to have a lawyer draw up a petition & take it to court. And, you'll need documentation & a reason for the requested change.
Don't your children deserve whatever relationship he is ready to give to them, though?
Maybe you could gather documentation that you have kept the schedule open for him, but that he has not come. Then, ask the courts to change the visitation schedule to include a clause saying that, if he has not called to confirm that he's coming 3 days before his visitation time, you are free to cancel it.
That would give him (and your kids) a chance to spend time together, but make things more reasonable for you.
What Do Insurance Lawyers Do?
An insurance lawyer protects the rights of the company that employs it.
For example, in the case of an accident lets say, sometimes an insurance company appoints a lawyer to represent their policy holder in a law suit. If the company feels that they do not have liability they will send them to court with their policy holder. This happens in cases where there is a question of who is at fault especially if there are a lot of long term injuries.
What Happens To Items Not Specified In A Legal Will?
What Happens To Items Not Specified In A Legal Will. Such As Anything From Trinkets To Sums Of Money, Who Gets These Items Or Are They First Take First Own?
Thank You For Helping
Generally, a will contains what is called a "residuary clause." This clause should state who takes the remainder of the property owned by the decedent at the time of his or her death. However, if there is not a residuary clause the remaining property will pass according to intestate succession. Most likely it will go the nearest living relative.
Where To Find Funds For Legal Assistance?
Go to a site called targetlaw.com and type in legal aid. You probably should put the state that you are in such as New York Legal Aid. This should give you a list of all the legal aid companies in your area. I'm assuming this is for a divorce / custody battle etc.
