Any Way To Fight These Criminal Charges?
My Fiancee Is Being Charged With 1 Account Of Theft And 2 Accounts Criminal/Graveyard Mischief. Something That Happened Over 3 Years Ago Of Which He Did Not Do. He Was Barely 18 When This Occurred And Got Drunk With Two Buddies And They Went To A Graveyard, He Doesn'T Remember That Night And Didn'T Even Know What Was Going On But One Of The Guys Decided To Rob The Security Building In The Cemetery. I Guess My Fiancee Might Have Cut Himself While With Them And The Police Got His Dna From It. He May Be Guilty For Trespassing But He Did Not Steal Anything Or Knowingly Steal Anything, He Didn'T Even Know Anything Was Stolen Until The Next Day When He Saw The Computers In His Buddy'S Car. He'S Already Served Time For Conspiracy To Commit Theft Two Years For Something He Didn'T Do But He Was Present When Three Under-Aged Kids Decided To Steal And He Knew About It And Stupidly Admitted To It. He'S Served A Year Of House Arrest And Has Three Years Probation - Two Already Served But He'S 21 Now, He'S Grown Up And Left The Crowd He Was In. He Had A Terrible Upbringing And Was Slow To Realize He Didn'T Need To Act Out To Get Attention. He'S Got Two Jobs, A Car, A House And We'Re Getting Married. He'S Paid All His Fees On Time And Has Been No Trouble For The Cops. I'M Curious If There Is Anything I Could Do To Help Him Win This. Is There Any Possible Laws That Would Prevent Them From Charging Him With Something From Over 3 Years Ago? Is There A Law Preventing Them From Using His Dna If It'S Not In A Murder Case? Any Kind Of Law That Could Help Him? He'S Done Stupid Things In His Past, He'S Paid For His Mistakes, He'S A Different Person Now - He'S Cleaned Up, He'S A Good Man But The Past Keeps Biting Him In The ***. Can They 100% Prove He'S Guilty By Having The Dna? There'S No Way To Prove One Of His Friend'S Carried His Dna. He Was Also Intoxicated And Not In The Right State Of Mind, Is That Helpful To Him? If He Turns In The Other Two Guys Who Were Involved Could That Help?
"Is there any possible laws that would prevent them from charging him with something from over 3 years ago?" Possibly. His attorney will want to look into the statute of limitations on these charges and how they apply to this case.
"Is there a law preventing them from using his DNA if it's not in a murder case?" Of course not. The admissibility of evidence has nothing to do with the charge being brought.
"Any kind of law that could help him?" Maybe the statute of limitations on the charges, but it's not likely, considering the prosecutor is familiar with it.
"Can they 100% prove he's guilty by having the DNA?" Possibly. If the DNA sample is his blood on a broken window, for example, that would pretty much seal it.
"He was also intoxicated and not in the right state of mind, is that helpful to him?" Not at all. It's his own fault he was intoxicated. A total acceptance of personal responsibility over ones chosen behavior, without excuses, would be helpful.
"If he turns in the other two guys who were involved could that help?" Maybe. And he could discuss this with his attorney.
However, if I were you, I'd discourage that. It makes both of you a target for retaliation. Plus, would you rather have a man who accepts responsibility for his mistakes, or a child who makes excuses and blames others?
Can Anyone Shed Some Light On Proper Personal Injury Claim Settlement Amounts?
My Mother And Sister Were In An Accident A Few Months Back. A Lady Rear Ended Them While They Were Stopped At A Red Light. She Took Full Responsibility For The Accident.
Damage To The Car Was Not Very Visible To The Naked Eye. Rear Bumper Damage But When We Took It To The Body Shop Vehicle Frame Damage Was Discovered.
Initially The Other Insurance Company Offered $500 For The Car Damage But Bumped It Up To $3000 When They Saw Frame Damage. That Has All Been Paid And What Remains Is The Personal Injury Claim.
One Day'S Worth Of Hospital Bills For My Mom And Sister Ran Nearly $8,000. The Other Insurance Company Classified The Situation As Standard Whip Lash. He Offered To Pay The Outstanding Bills And Give $500 Each For Pain And Suffering And $300 Each For Future Treatment.
I Used Www.Eorthopod.Com To Learn About Whiplash Injuries And Long Term Pain As A Result. Both My Mother And Sister Still Feel Some Pain And I'M Afraid Of Long Term Damage.
A lawyer can not get you 50,000. So, don't even go there. Your claim is worth what it's worth - regardless if you have an attorny or not.
Each claim is evaluated on it's own merits. The injury is what it is. So, we can't tell you what to settle for. I have not seen the photos/estimate of your car, the car that hit you, your mother/sisters medical bills/reports.
If your mom and sister incurred 8000 in meds in 1 hospt trip - that's likely a good 80% diagnostic. If the x-rays, Cat Scan/Mri that were done shows nothing wrong - then those things don't add value to the claim other than the cost of the proceedure.
A whip lash injury is a soft tissue injury. It will resolve itself with time. It is not a permanent injury and it will not cause life long problems. It will usually resolve itself. Although, anti-inflamatories and muscle relaxers can help.
As long as you don't get greedy and think that this is going to solve all your financial problems you should be fine.
What Does It Mean To Be A Lawyer?
What Does It Mean To Be A Lawyer? Why Do We Need Law And Lawyers? What Are The Best Law Schools? Who Are Some Famous Lawyers?
A lawyer is a person who is trained in the law. He or she must be licensed by the supreme court in the state where he or she practices. The reason lawyers are necessary is because in our complex society the laws have become correspondingly complex. It is simply unreasonable to expect that a lay person could develop the expertise necessary to adequately present their case. The truth be told, even lawyers concentrate their efforts in one area of the law because it is simply too difficult to be an expert in all areas. Which are the "best" law schools is a topic of constant debate. The debate usually focuses on how to define "best". Nonetheless, most lawyers would agree that the best universities tend to have the best law schools. Probably the most famous criminal defense lawyers are Clarence Darrow, F. Lee Bailey, and Johnny Cochran.
Dental Malpractice Lawyer?
Dental Malpractice Lawyer?
Hi, I'M Looking For A Dental Malpractice Lawyer Who Only Charges If The Case Wins. I'M In The Boston Area. Preferably One With A Good History.
I'd contact my local bar or state bar association and ask for a referral to a personal injury attorney who also does work in medical malpractice. They should be able to help you. Also, most PI attorneys do not charge you anything they work on contingency...they will evaluate your case to see if your case has any merit and if they can make any money off it...if they feel its a good case...they won't charge you until you receive a settlement.
Can My Attorney Quit?
My Attorney Keeps Threatning To Resign As My Attorney If I Refuse To Settle My Case Out Of Court And Is Making Accuations That Are Not True I Have Never Agreed To Settle For The Amount Offered.And He Insest I Did.Can He Quit My Case?I Want To Go To Court.
Your attorney can file a Motion/Request to Withdraw, which must be noticed-up for a hearing, in which you can (and should) attend. There are really only two reasons we ever withdraw from a case: 1) non-payment; or 2) inability to communicate with client, i.e., disconnected telephone for a period of time and client fails to keep an open line of communication (via e-mail, cell, etc.); or 2) we've forwarded paperwork to our client that needs to be responded too in a timely fashion and the client simply will not respond back to us after several requests (it's impossible to represent a client without an open line of communication).
If I were you, I would:
1. Drop this attorney ASAP! You simply do not want him representing you any longer, as he is not respecting your wishes (within reason), nor probably looking out for your best interests. I have to wonder if you signed any type of "Contingency Fee Agreement" (agreement wherein he gets a percentage of your settlement, as that is the only reason I can rationalize him taking such a harsh stance with you settling before a trial. This is unethical, amongst other things, so long as you did not sign something agreeing to the same and did not completely understand what you were agreeing too!
2. I would call your State's Bar Association to discuss this complaint, as well as find out if he's been in any prior trouble with the Bar Association (many attorneys that do not practice "honorably" have had prior troubles, and not many people know or think to check before they retain counsel.)
3. Start attorney shopping immediately, as well as make sure you have gathered everything you have pertaining to your case so that attorney not only knows what has been done thus far (all pleadings can be obtained from the Court), etc. If you have difficulty with selecting an attorney, the Bar Assocation should also have a list of attorney's who practice in certain areas of law, and they can refer you to one that is compentent in that area.
Good luck, and you were smart to ask questions before caving-in to his demands. At a minimum, you can find an attorney in the phone book that offers a "free consultation", and get his advice before making a decision. He would at least be able to review any sort of "fee agreement" you may have signed with your attorney.
Custody Rights Of Me?
I'M 15. I Live In St. Louis, Missouri.
I'M Trying To Go Live With My Dad In Conyers, Georgia. My Mom Told Me That My Dad Has No Legal Rights To Me Because He Is 200K Behind In Child Support (But He Doesn'T Have To Pay It Anymore). Then Again, My Mom Is A Liar About Many Many Things So It Is Very Hard To Believe What She Says.
Aren'T I Old Enough To Decide Who I Wanna Live With? My Mother Is A Hoarder And She Is A Very Controlling Woman. A Very Angry Woman Too. Never Happy. I Just Went To Court Because My Mom Lied Tothe Police And Told Them I Punched Her. Now I'M On Probation For 6 Months To A Year.
She Has Really Caused Some Damage In My Life. I Cannot Stand Living With Her. She Literally Keeps Me In My House All Day Everyday With No Contact With Friends. (Snuck On My Itouch Right Now If You'Re Wondering How I'M On The Internet) And I'M Slowly Becoming Depressed And She Yells At Me For Being Depressed. I'M So Sick Of Dealing With Her. Nothin Pleases Her.
But Anyways, Would I Be Able To Take Her To Court And Fight For Me Being Able To Live With My Father? What Would I Have To Prove To The Court And How Would I Go About This?
If your father wants custody, he needs to consult his attorney and file the appropriate documents in court. While you are a minor, a judge decides which parent has custody.
While you are a minor, you have no right to sue. An adult (in this case, your father) has to bring a case to court.
Whether or not your father is in arrears in payment of child support does not have any legal bearing on his visitation rights. It may, however, be an indicator to the court that he has not acted as a responsible parent. It might also indicate to the court that, if he cannot afford to pay child support, he certainly would not be able to support a teenager in his home.
Go to your school counselor and tell her about your depression. Ask for a referral for a clinical social worker or psychologist to help you. You are in a very tough situation.
