Local court conspiracy by Samuel Sabblemetch - Sun, 04 Mar 2018 23:06:14 EST ID:ZMcYSML9 No.46150 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

My friend has some legal issues, and he believes that theres a conspiracy in the local court system to fuck him over and give him max penalty. A few years back he fucked this big shot lawyer, one of the biggest in the state over hard and owes him thousands of dollars. Me and my friends have used this lawyer frequently and have gotten ridiculously good deals when we used him.

So now hes getting completely fucked around for some DUI, his lawyer (not the same one he fucked over) didn't show up to court and theyre threatening to give him max penalty over some bs .01 over the legal limit.

He thinks that theres a big conspiracy to fuck him over and keep him away from his kids because he fucked the first lawyer over really hard. He thinks that all the lawyers and judges are in bed with eachother and the lawyers basically act as a middle man between the judge and you.

How plausible is this?

It is plausible. I so I would not necessarily call it conspiracy per se. But stuff like this is really nothing really new. I would say if because the attorney did not show up and the reason for possible max penalty is simply because of that. If stated in court. He may consider firing the attorney if he is not being represent properly in the future.

Big Truck, Hit and Run, Failing to Report a Crime by Frederick Fuckingman - Tue, 06 Mar 2018 18:15:35 EST ID:fi0ertZO No.46154 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hey my friends, Im hoping you could give me some advice here. Recently got job as a long haul truck driver. It's cool as hell, I love it.

Anyway two week ago my company had me delivering in the Bronx NY. It was a shitshow. I got stuck, called NY police to help me get out. Wasn't able to deliver at original location, bad time all around. But it gets worse.

So I'm crossing back over the George Washington bridge back into the upper level of hell we call New Jersey and I sideswipe a garbage truck (we're both in turning lanes getting to close). Motherfucker takes my right mirror clean off. We both curse at each other and keep driving. I drive all the way to my new delivery location and unload.

So I guess all the garage trucks up there have video cameras on them because about an hour later I start getting calls from this Jersey cop investigating the incident and now I'm charged with hit and run/failing to report a crime.

How should I handle this situation? My court date is about a month away and I'm still hauling ass around the country. I called the court clerk and she said I can plead my case by mail if I want but I have no idea what to do. Can a lawyer help me with one? I think a hit and run is possible jail/probably take my license. I know I fucked up but nobody was hurt and this guy clearly didn't pull over either. You can't pull over anywhere on the GW Bridge.

Any advice would be so appreciated right now. Thanks in advance.

Take pictures of the missing mirror. The company you work for, proof of the work
$$ spent to replace the mirror. The Hit and run generally I would say falls on the one who caused the accident. Possibly, person and company thought it a best idea to make a complaint ASAP. If you do not think you were wrong I would call the investigator/officer and try to meet with somebody. If there were enough time to stop and curse at each other, could have had enough time to exchange information. Did you company file some insurance claim s well.

I am sure the video would show, the ruck taking out your mirror. If you did not make a mistake, the video should show at least that basically the mirror was taken out. And surely you could back that up with minimal proof, even if the other persons video does not show that. You do not want to have a hi 'n' run on your record. Ask the clerk what the charges actually are as well as the police.

If it comes to court meet with the DA, if you can beforehand. He'she may request to the judge that the case be dropped.

The fine, hit and run, failure to report are criminal offenses, which at least the first could result in jail time. So be proactive.

guys what happens if i have a dui case here and i want to move to another state and im in a really big hurry? i dont care if i come back where i live so i don't care about a warrant or anything

if i go to sentencing and get charged and they make go to classes/meetings can i just skip out on them and if i have a residence in my new city can i have an attorney tell a judge that and have my classes transferred over?

if i just say fuck court and leave now and they put a warrant out for arrest and shit is there any way to get my license back without having to come back? like can a lawyer handle the case for me then the judge can charge me from there and i just get any probation, punishment, fines, classes and shit like that transferred over to my new state/county? I live in the middle of nowhere and i CANNOT live without a license there's no taxi or bus for fucking miles and there's no jobs or people for like 30 miles and i have no one to help out except parents who work full time.

my charges are:

  1. dwai first offense, or dui i don't know
  2. driving while on drugs or some shit
  3. imprudent speed

also why the fuck do i have 2 duis in one? also when i went to my arraignment i told my judge id show up on a certain date to pay my fine am i required to? am i required to ever pay the fine if i just live far away anyway?

Accidently backed into my good friend/roomates car in the driveway at our house. It left a small dent on his rear quarter panel. Although its small it looks like an expensive fix because you can't just pull it out. He's not mad but definitely wants it fixed and paid for by me.

Whats the best way to go about this? He says I should call my insurance company and let them know what happened but I'm worried they are going to tell me I have to file a police report. Will I get a citation for causing an accident if I go this route? I'm debating if it would be better to take it to a shop and pay out the ass to get it fixed or call my insurance and pay the deductible.

guys how do i go about hiring a lawyer? what if the lawyer for a specific crime doesnt exist in my town do i just get one in a town an hour away?

how do i know which ones are good and which ones shit and how much i should be paying and shit. do you haggle down lawyers like you do cars at dealerships? is it possible to go with a cheap one?

what happens if i get a free court appointed lawyer because "i cant afford it" and then later down the line start shitting myself and deciding to dip into my savings for a lawyer?

do i just call around and for rates? ive tried before and i never got a call back from a lawyer i just got a secretary who asked for information and wrote down my number and then nothing ever happened after

would it be possible to get a good quality lawyer for like 500-1500? can you predict the cost of a lawyer or does it depend on how many court dates you get? can you get a lawyer and pay it off in like 6 months or something or does it all have to be done upfront? also i live in a small town and none of the lawyers have reviews or rating or anything

Well depends on as many qyestions. court appointed attonrenys can be just on the same side as,, practicing on their future Prosecuting law endeveaurers. Just as paid criminal defence attorneys could be as bad.

Basically it depends. Check attorneys law practices. Civil rights, criminal defence attorneys can be a good choice, depending on a lot of things. Basic criminal defence attorneys. Google names of attorneys near you, in a small town, soem amy be friends with prosecuting attorneys, but that does not mean they will side with the prosecution any more so. They would ask you basics and likely say they would accept the case and give you a figure. Don't really knnow, always defended myself as an adult. Made edeals with prosecutors, agreeing
to plead guilty in a manner that was basically fair for the most part.

sorry for all the questions but is there a way to tell how good the lawyer is besides just a free consultation like does the bar hold statistics or something like that where you can base lawyers based on how well they have done in cases

how do i find out if a lawyer is really skilled in the crime im being arrested for like a lawyer that has the most experience dealing with that crime. is it better to hire old lawyers like ones that have been in practice for longer doing it or what?

Is there any legal difference between direct downloads (like from mega or similar sites) and torrenting when it comes to piracy? I read once that Direct downloading was less likely to be prosecuted because you're just downloading something someone else uploaded, whereas when you torrent you're technically uploading while you download so it's worse, or easier to prosecute or something.

Either way DDLs have to be less likely to be monitored than torrents right? there's no way they could possibly monitor all that exchange of data. Or could they?

Today I just got a missed called from my local police station. I called the number back and the receptionist basically told me to fuck off and wait til I get another call.

This has ruined my whole day, I've been a nervous wreck, I can't stop thinking about what the phone call might have been about. Maybe it was just a wrong number, or maybe I'm being charged with god only knows. I haven't even done anything that might but me in trouble with the law.

I'm scarred shitless and I can't stop worrying about what they want. I can't sleep. I can't even play video games, all I can do is worry.

Why haven't they even bothered to call back? I can't stand the uncertainty.

How worried should I be? Do I need to contact a lawyer?

And the only obvious solution is to call them back and threaten their lives for information. Not a lot of people know this but it's not against the law to tell a cop you're going to murder him and his family if they don't give you certain information. It's actually in the constitution as a basic citizen right. If they overreact and send squad cars to your residence, it's not against the law to claim your property as an independent town with your own rights and laws.

The only problem I see in this plan is I have absolutely no idea what im talking about and im actually a full grown bear that just broke into some farmers house to steal honey and noticed he left his computer on lol

How do we use common law to defeat cannabis laws? Common law should be able to bypass them entirely, given how they were written before such laws existed, and have obscurities like bypassing your surname to be able to nullify parts of law against you, as they were for slaves. Halp? I need weed in this fucking desert. It is over a six hour drive through the desert to get to a dispensary, and even the fucking state workers want weed in at this point.

Because they were distrustful of standing armies and favored the ability of citizens to form militias to defend the several states. Good luck with the armed insurrection though. Also filing frivolous lawsuits like your picture is a great way to get felony charges in a lot of states, so good luck with that too.

So early december my girlfriend and I got caught trying to steal some dumb shit from walmart and got caught. I was seen on camera helping her hide shit. It was fucking dumb, neither of us do this type of shit and we have no excuse really. The police were too busy at that time to actually see us and let us know what was going to happen, we never got anything in the mail regarding any possible charges, no phone call, nothing. Figured the police didnt give a shit about a 3rd degree retail fraud call from walmart regarding ~$50 in recovered merchandise and assumed we had gotten lucky.

About a month prior to this event I applied and interviewed for a job. I didn't hear anything back about the job until about a week ago where I took my drug test, consented to a background check, etc. Today I got an email from HR asking me to explain the warrant I have out for me that I had no idea existed.

I guess what I want to know is the employer's rights regarding rescinding the job offer, what I should and shouldn't do in order to possibly get this shit off my record, and whether or not I should get a lawyer, which I very much can not afford at the moment.

I feel like I'm royally fucked out of this job because I had no idea I had the warrant at the time I consented for the background check. other than this warrant I have a completely clean record.

Thanks for any input, I'm shitting bricks here

I'm a bit curious as to how you got caught. Walmart security is a joke (and so is that of most big retail chains). They don't have cameras covering the entire store and the cameras aren't even being watched most of the time. They have one or two Asset Protection associates working there at any given time which is nowhere near enough to cover the entire store. Back when I worked there we had people stealing shit constantly and the policy was more or less it wasn't worth pursuing or prosecuting these people because more than 90% of the time they were stealing so little. Me and coworkers were finding empty packages crammed in bathrooms and on shelves constantly and it all just went to the Claims department with no followup. The logic seemed to be that it would cost more to prosecute people and hire more Asset Protection Associates than it would be to ignore the couple hundred to couple thousand dollars of petty theft every month.

From what I've seen if you're only stealing small stuff and aren't being blatant or stupid about it big retail chains probably won't notice or care if you steal fifty bucks or less of merchandise on occasion and you can conceal it easily.

If one has a warrant you can do a walk thorough, as they call it here. Where you post the bond and merely go to the police station and full out bail/bond paperwork. Without being arrested. You may need to do mug shot, finderprinting, etc. Better than getting picked up traveling, or walking on the streets. Especially if you happen to have something less than legal on you. This would get you a cout date set and worry about ending up in jail for a warrant for your arrest.-

Today I stopped by to get some stuff from a friend. Said stuff could potentially be of interest. I accidentally parked by someone who had very pro police memorabilia on their car. I stayed over for about 30 minutes. When I came out they were on the phone and staring at me. This happened in the past, so realistically how bad could this be for me if this happened a few weeks ago? A few months ago? Basically how long do I need to be more cautious for?

is it against the law for a cop to take your phone away when you try to record them? i thought it was illegal for them to do that and you're allowed to record and by law they have to let you.

its legal, but unfortunately cops do not always respect the law. especially if the law works against their goals. in that case they may bend/ignore it. i suggest discreet recording, or a hidden camera in vehicle, etc

That's why you livestream and the video is archived on the internet so they can't delete the footage.

It's not always legal, there's several states that consider it wiretapping and will prosecute it.

But in almost all states it is. It's also in all of those states perfectly fine for an officer to determine you holding up a phone is interfering with his investigation and take it.

Reasonably, if you aren't getting in their faces then no issue. Often cops are more worried about 'officer safety' when somebody is casually caming them than they are with the issue at hand.

Some laws have been put in place that one cannot film or record police in public. Obviously paranoid troubled local city government. Police are not allowed to take peoples phones and review contents without a warrant, or possibly if it directly relates to issue at hand, like if a drug deal one of the detainees said whomever texted, and texted back. But The Supreme courts have ruled police cannot just take peoples phones and review material, surely what you ask, this falls in the same category of search and seizure.

I have cammed cops, not by default, but when something is sneaky going on. And somethings, cannot be played off. by moment to moment without extra mishaps trying to correct themselves. Sometimes it's almost hilarious.

As well people have been jailed for recording police in public and get jailed for obstruction. What a kick to the head of an already detained and secured suspect. keep videoing. It's not, we pay your salary, to police, it's more like we pay taxes and do not want bad actors running various parts of government. Police or not.
