I have an issue I'd love to receive some advice on and I decided to post it here because I figured the lurkers of /law/ may be able to give me the most logical advice.

Basically, I have an adult record of 4 misdemeanor charges in a certain county, which isn't the one I currently live in. However, I actually intend on attending University and getting a job in that particular county. The thing is, a year or so has gone by since the arrest and I've since been trying to get the record expunged, as I don't consider myself a career criminal and I'd like for the record to not follow me around for the rest of my professional life.

Of course the process is very difficult and involves mundane fees and paperwork, however, I am still persistently trying to get it all done. After the arrest, I successfully completed a "PTI," like a mini-probation, as I'm sure you're familiar with, being that I had a small amount of required community service hours, drug tests and fees, which was completed in three months. I did receive paperwork stating the program was completed, but there's one form in particular the county told me I needed to continue with the expunction application process: a sealed certified disposition. Apparently, a certain person in a certain department has to get in touch with me in order for it to be printed and sent to me, and this person is saying the case was sealed to their access. The case is closed, yes, after I finished the program, but the charges are not sealed because they are still accessible to the public. The fact that they are still accessible to the public means that I am eligible to apply for expunction, in order to make them not accessible to the public.

Now, my situation is this: being that I want to attend University in this particular county, I recently began the application process for the school and it clearly asks for any CHARGES of a criminal history. Unlike most job applications which ask about convictions, the way this application question was worded clearly is asking for misdemeanor charges and arrests, even if the case has since been closed. However, I know that if I am successful in getting the charges expunged this informat…

Don't listen to these few useless morons, expunging your records they will be sealed from public access. Noting few exceptions. If you missed court and had a bench warrant for arrest theses could 'possibly' be accessed. If a restraining order had been issued by another party. Domestic disputes possible.

Nothing more I can think of from what I see would affect what you are working on.

I see in this you want records to be simply expunged, so you can omit these in furthering yourself
in future choices in employment education, etc. Anybody who wants to further themselves without
unneeded scrutiny following them around should do the same.

As in "have you ever been arrested or charged with a crime." If you feel this will not be accessible by public then by all means you have the option to say no and be safe and leave these infractions behind you. Hence, expunging your records.

So keep on. Good luck in your future goals.

>> what am i not understanding about that?

>>Core concepts about what expungement does. It's not a clean slate. Even after it's been expunged, you >>have been arrested.

Explain the core concept of what expungement is intended for. It is essentially a clean slate in the public view. It is even often explained essentially as that in law, clean slate. Say drug courts may allow an expungment, a clean slate if one goes through a program, so it will not interfere with future

Expungement seals a conviction from public record. If you are asked if you have a conviction, in most circumstances you can answer that you haven't.

However, it doesn't change the fact you've been arrested. think of it this way: People get arrested and not charged. People get charged and found not guilty. People get found guilty but have their verdict suspended as part of some first offender statute. All of these people have lower levels of culpability than someone who's getting their record expunged, and would all have to admit they have had an arrest. So why would expungement magically erase an arrest too?

Also, more things to consider. In NCIC when you pull records you can see arrests even if they are followed by an expungement. You can generally tell that something was done, it's not clear a conviction followed. I don't remember the exact wording because it's been a year since I've seen one. Do you want someone doing a background check to see an arrest on the background check after you've told them you didn't have one? I know if it was me you'd be rejected instantly, even if it was to work at a car wash.

Also consider, I know this is at a university, i'm assuming public, so the above analysis controls, but private places use private records clearinghouses. These paid services do not generally update their records to reflect expungement. So if you're ever getting a background check by a private entity, not only are they going to see your arrest, they are probably going to see the resulting conviction.

Negative interactions with police interfere with future endeavors. Lying to people and relying on the fact "oh well it was expunged" fucks with future endeavors more. It's simple: unless they specifically say "even if expunged tell us about all convictions," which many background checks do, you can omit an expunged conviction. If they ask if you've been arrested, it's in your best interest to be upfront about it.

It's really a decision that can affect ones future.

Saying yes is possibly offering your clearinghouses' info that one really does not want to be shared.

What would one really want, denial because of a background check and or being less than informative or, "If yes, describe in full" following them around.

It can be assembled and disassembled in ways that are fully irrational by some, or looked at in a rational manner by others in regards of judging peoples integrity.

Non-disclosure may support integrity if ones intentions and short and long term goals are realistic.

Charges filed against me (State of Pennsylvania)

75 1786 F - Operation of Vehicle Without Required Financial Responsibility
75 3714 A - Careless Driving
75 3802 A1* - DUI: General Impairment/Incapability of Driving Safely, 1st Offense
75 3802 D2* - DUI: Controlled Substance - Impaired Ability, 1st Offense

A little background first. When the title of my car was transferred into my name, the regisration retained my old address which is on my license (despite my providing my correction to my license that I received from Penndot at the time of the title transfer). Back in the early fall of 2015, I changed insurance providers from Liberty Mutual, to Geico, and then to Travellers in the span of two weeks or so. Insurance providers are not required by law to notify Penndot of when insurance is gained by a policy holder, only when a policy holder is dropped from coverage. Apparently, Geico immediately sends this notification of a drop to Penndot. When I dropped Geico, I picked up insurance with Travellers on the same day. Because of the aforementioned address confusion, Penndot's form they send out to clarify that an individual is maintaining insurance on their operatable vehicle was never received by me. So, I was ignorant to the fact that I needed to fill out any such form, thinking everything was okay, knowing that I was insured and had the proof for it myself.

Fast forward to January 1st, I am pulled over by a local police officer due to a headlight being out. He gives me a warning on that headlight, and alerts me to the fact that there is an "F-stop" on my registration, i.e. I am not currently insured. However, I explain to him how I am, producing my insurance card and neccessary documents, and he gives me ten days to show that i have attempted to rectify the problems. So, I fix my headlight, have my Insurance provider contact penndot, and I report back to him. He understands that im getting it fixed and the matter is resolved to him. Good Guy. Apparently, penndot is incapable of receiving correspondence that is not in the fashion of a form, so despite my having my insurance agent contact penndot via email and fax with an official declaration of me never lapsing in coverage from the t…

She then asks me, "Are you responsible for everything in that vehicle?"

I pause.

"are you responsible for everything in that vehicle?"

I look back, then look at her, "Uhh, yes?"

then she asks me "Do you give us consent to search your vehicle?" in this really convoluted tone that is a half rhetorical question half statement, and i ask her, "Is there a penalty if I say no? Will I be treated differently if I say no?" She then alludes to dogs blah blah blah, have your car towed blah blah blah, and I reluctantly say "yes" and she goes and puts me on the curb and proceeds to pull my friends out of the car and question them, then searches them, cuffs my friend in the passenger seat, sit him next to me (he had nothing on him) and then my two friends in the back have their shit taken, weed, paraphernalia. The lieutenant than asks me where my shit is, i tell her. she asks me if i have a scale (LOL) she takes my bowl and weed.

She then gives me a field sobriety test, does the pen test: I follow it with my eyes, not my head, pass it with flying colors, no problem with that one. She then wants me to do the walk-the-line part, and begins stumbling over her own words, starting over with her instructions, telling me to stop at one point, making it sound like i should stop at a different point, tells me to "reverse direction," not "turn around" I ask questions to clarify, blah blah blah. im shaking because its freezing and i had been sitting on the curb in 20 degree with for 15 minutes so my balance isnt the best and theres just so many things that are fucked up with this exposition. i walk the line and am counting but she doesnt tell me to stop. i stop anyway becaues if i didnt i would have walked into her cruiser. I then start walking backwards along the line. it's just stupid. I also heard later that field sobriety tests werent admissable in court.

She then puts me in the cruiser and she and her partner are talking to my friends, and my friend who was in the passenger seat, who admitted to smoking weed, is told he can drive my car and my other friends home (which was alright, cool), but now he's a sober witness to al…

So we depart and my friends get off clean. Im in the cruiser and we are speeding toward the local hospital to have my blood drawn since I agreed to have it drawn for a reduced sentencing program. We are literally doing double the speed limit, doing 75-90 miles and hour all the way there. We speed up behind this car and who else is it but my other uninvolved friend, and we ride his ass to the next town. (i see him the next day and he explains how this cop was on his ass) I am told that i cannot speak to an attorney before the blood is drawn, i am told i need to sign this sheet of paper that i felt rushed to sign, i sign it anyway, i get the blood drawn, cuffs go back on, no water or even saltines, i wanted some saltines dammit, and we speed again at outrageous speeds to the police station, where I am proccessed and the whole shebang. ( was never read my rights, i dont know how much that means anymore) My friend picks me up and i drive home after i drop him off at his car.

I asked the lieutenant when i was waiting for my friend to pick me up, if i was driving bad at all, i said i may have fluttered my brakes a little bit. she responded, "youre not the worst ive seen"

once we got into the cruiser after the hospital, She also made a joke about her oaf of a partner enjoying ripping people out of cars, and that if i moved my front-cuffed hands up or around or above the restraints, he would rip me out of the car and throw me on the ground. just minor intimidation, i know it's nothing to get your panties in a wad about, but still.

also, if theyre asking an individual, who is believed by them to be intoxicated, to sign a piece of paper, isn't that a logical catch-22? isn't that fucked up? if you cant allegedly operate a motor vehicle, how can one make legal decisions for themself? it's a fucking sham.

I just want to know what im looking at here and if there is any chance of fighting it.

I have some resources I read up on a little.


I was stopped not due to reckless driving, but to an unrelated investigation related to the F-stop, which I mentioned to the officer and showed proof of insurance. She could have even gone so far as to look at the date of determinancy of a loss of insurance. but she didnt. she wanted that cheap dui and associated drug bust.

I wasn't signing anything about receiving a ticket. It was signing off on having my blood drawn in accordance with a program I could enter.

I actually didnt walk away with a singe piece of paper from the police, and i still havent received anything.

I'm expecting a hospital bill for the "voluntary" bloodwork.

Funny enough, I received some mail from three law offices today soliciting me for their assistance, yet I havent seen any mail from the judge's office.

The pa court website says the case was filed on February 9th.

additionally, when reading aloud the sheet of paper, the officer said that I waive my rights to plead any other way than guilty by signing it, but I didn't see too much of a choice at the time.

Had a person in a van sideswipe me trying to merge over into the left lane I was in, fucking bounces off my car and goes back into the lane they were in originally then fucking guns it up this hill trying to evade me, weaving between both lanes to get as far ahead as they possibly could from me. I immediately called 911 and pulled over, officer cap, filed a police report, yada yada. So what I need to know from ya'll is:

  1. Should I get an estimate on the damage before filing an insurance claim, or should I just go ahead and file an insurance claim? Because I have collision repair with Allstate and I know they cover hit and run accidents but ONLY if the damage costs more than the deductible, or something like that.

Anyone from Chicago that has actually been beaten after arrest without resisting? Chicago is known for being corrupt but after an arrest and simply staying silent not even talking to an officer is considered attitude. They smacked me in the face 2x for not speaking with the bottom open palm to not leave a mark. I was then hit in the stomach with a flashlight by his weaker partner for not offering my information when arrested after remaining silent. What's wrong with you, can't you talk? FUCK NO especially hearing about a cubs game they were going to before I was I-BONDED out...released on my own recognize. Please tell me someone from Chicago has been beaten up after an arrest? To have slammed a flashlight into my stomach at a station bench that might as well been a fucking closet. An example of Chicago cops covering themselves on a junkie that was literally nodded out on a bench which they claimed he tried to "escape" that's a classic heroin junkie. There was no escape, that a picture after they beat his ass up in a fucking super high nod. Who has that capability to "escape" that high?

This happens everywhere, Chicago cops just celebrate/are celebrated for being so flagrantly corrupt, the only other police department in the US with a similar rep is New Orleans.
Cops are like this everywhere pretty much. If you think a bunch of fat irish slobs that call negros hambones and take their loose cash after smacking them up was bad you should see some of the shitty cops whose cartel family members encouraged them to pursue the career over on the west coast, or the cops that are actual card carrying members of shit like the kkk down south.
Just avoid that situation again I guess.
I can't even get a job at walmart because a police officer twisted his wrist beating the shit out of me when I was 16 and I got a resisting arrest and assault on an officer charge. It's like this all over the country. In az they will put you on the hood of a hot car in the 120 degree heat and hold you there til you blister, and if you happen to get dark while they sun bake you and don't have a birth certificate and 2 forms of government id get ready for a 72 hour hold while they double check your citizen status.
The world is shitty and people in power often abuse it, I would think someone that comes from around one of the most well known collections of hoods called a city in the US would know this. Maybe stay in the suburbs if this shit shell shocks you that much, it's just another day that ends in y for everyone else.

OP you might need to smoke LESS and chill out, and maybe see a mental health professional, based on the two rambling threads you've posted in the past couple weeks.

Police should only use a reasonable level of force in a given situation.
Otherwise they are a liability to themselves, the public, the integrity
of law and justice. I believe in Denver police have to get their own
insurance instead of the city/taxpayers paying the bill for misconduct.

Doesn't matter who is perceived to deserve to be mistreated. If a department
as practice routinely uses excessive force and tactics that are unreasonable
it should be everybody's concern. Uh, unless some people who favor these
practices gets a speeding ticket, or parking meter violation they somehow
feel betrayed just like that. Thinking or saying the same ol, why don't you
do your job and catch rapists and robbers.

It was literally the middle of the night and me and a friend went to a local park to try out a new vape. I brought all my weed because I was lazy.

We were stupid and didn't keep and eye out when we went to the park. Cops saw us and caught us getting high.

They get our names, joke about how the thing reeks, asks me how it works, etc. I responded with idk and one word answers for most of it. Then the other cop said we are under arrest for possession and then said she was going to search our bags, which is legal since we are under arrest.

A few more words and trying to make us feel bad smoking weed and then they let us go after confiscating our shit.

I didn't have any ID, they I only gave them my name and address.

We weren't taken to the police station, we weren't fingerprinted, we weren't told to show up anywhere or given any instructions about what we needed to do next, they just let us go without our shit. But the cops did say we were under arrest during the incident.

it's been 6 months and I haven't received any letters that tell me to show up to court to defend against charges.

I'm worried because the company I work for has business in the states and I'm lined up to take a bigger role potentially in american markets a few years from now. I really don't want this to have an adverse effect on my career.

You likely would have gotten a ticket or summons to appear in court. well in the US anyway. I would imagine they were just messing with you. Chances are they just made a report about a 'contact' ran your names and nothing more. Nothing that would be readily and easily searchable in my opinion.

But could contact the police department and see if there could be a warrant for an arrest
if you failed to appear, if they were being scum and didn't offer you a summons to appear or ticket to pay a petty fine or dispute the fine in court.

The last 2 months have been rough, I got caught in a club with drugs and got the whole doorman/police/cell shakedown. After no comment during interview I eventually ended up and court today.
The dumb idiots tested a crushed up pill as coke and the actual pills somehow didnt make the trial. So one false count of a class A possession instead of 2, even though it was the wrong drug.
My solicitor was smart and instead of letting me explain the bullshit confusion, which would had lead to more bullshit and another court date for ultimately the same charge, made my case simple. I had nothing to say throughout the whole thing except guilty and got a fine.
The police are incompetent as fuck and have no idea what drugs are. Glad this crap is over but really fuck them and this whole drug war. However Im glad it happened in some ways cause I dont wanna do drugs anymore and remembering this whole fiasco will keep me in check.

Reality is designer or rather unscheduled drugs, takes years to make them a scheduled class drug.

Marijuana as per the FDA in the US has no valid uses in medicine
So it is a class schedule 1, no medical usages, like LSD.

In reality, (OP) person should not have plead guilty to anything, as the prosecution would have had to show cause to pursue the case.

As for RC drugs, the average police, FBI, DEA, it is a comfusing state of affairs regarding
these issues. So is the ability to expedite scheduling of drugs.

It is a battle, not much so, but the solid established medical community and the federal government.

Dear lord, all this bitching over a fine?
My clients get heavy duty probation for the same type of plea and possibly prison time if they have priors. And even with probation, they're backing up years over their heads and have judges crazy enough to give them the full back-up if they fuck up probation in even the slightest.

So quit your "war on drugs" shit. The UK is paradise.

Also, your solicitor may have fucked up. What were you actually charged with, possessing the pills or cocaine? I would've gotten you acquitted.

Is there anything this friend can do to be compensated by the pan company? They got teflon flu by cooking on low heat with this pan and its been more than a month and they're still shaky when they move their body in certain ways.
Does a person with low income have any chance? Its also a Korean company

This is the pan: http://amzn.com/B00SPUDQBC

  1. Prove it
  2. Prove it beyond a reasonable doubt
  3. If the company didn't know at the time it was dangerous then probably not
  4. Didn't the whole teflon panic turn out to kind of be bullshit?

5. You probably won't be able to prove it and I doubt a lawyer will even bother with you after the initial phone call or consultation.

>Prove it beyond a reasonable doubt
Assuming this would be a civil case, you wouldn't need to prove to "beyond a reasonable doubt," as that's just for criminal cases. Regardless, OP still doesn't have much of a chance of success.

Reasonable doubt, not even close to par with daytime fake courtroom drama.
All the comments,duuumb.

Really DuPont has settled many times for it's damages caused by it's products and practices. This item I believe claims 5 Teflon coatings, could be a flaw in the manufacturing process, as well documentation of this.

Not sure how long it stays in ones system but if one saw a doctor and saw above accepted levels of the chemical(s) and could correlate the physical conditions
to the exposure(s) then a case may be fairly straightforward. Time resource consuming but as it is now teflon as nice of a product it is intended to be,
has issues.

It might not have been caused by the teflon itself, but some kind of binding agent, or a paint, or a spray or something.

you'll need to hire a doctor to examine the patent and makes the diagnosis that a PARTICULAR spray or chemical caused the issue or likely caused the issue. There are doctors out there that specialize in this sort of thing. However, if you're low income you probably won't be able to afford it.

So, I know that there are various laws against administering drugs to people against their will. These laws usually are referring to roofies and GHB and the like, and some even specifically say that the substance has to be "poisonous, noxious, or toxic" i.e.; adding extra sugar/water/kool-aid mix to someone's drink isn't illegal (unless the person was diabetic or something i guess... but that's unrelated) and I imagine putting something like an OTC medication in a child's pudding to make them eat is when they won't is also not illegal. But what if you're trying to, say, give someone antibiotics (you know 100% for sure there are no allergy concerns) because you *might* have given them an STI (the clap) but you're not sure, they are not symptomatic, but you want to give them a prophylactic anyway, just to be certain. Now, I suppose this may fall under something like "prescription abuse", but antibiotics aren't scheduled substances, and you can even get them for something called Patient-Delivered-Partner Therapy, where you can get an extra dose of the drugs for your partner, without the doctor having to see them. Now, I know the idea of PDPT is to tell your partner what happened, and have them take the drugs, but... idk. I know that giving someone any sort of medication against their will is kinda a socially unacceptable thing to do, even with a hot highway's worth of good intentions, but is it actually illegal if it doesn't have any effect whatsoever, other than possibly curing the person?...

Okay, bear with my vagueness for this, at the moment it is delicate.
I think I just solved a murder. I am certain beyond a reasonable doubt. I say solved but not in the sense I know who has done it; I haven't even attempted that yet but am certain I could with cursory research.
The event was ruled a suicide. I can prove it was not. I have at least three people who could witness to what I know is true. They are all in federal custody for what will most likely be there entire life.
The event happened 2000+ miles away and more than a decade ago. I have no involvement other than i know what did and did not happen. What is my next move?

Contact a journalist, or maybe a lawyer group, like the ACLU or those Wrongful Imprisonment people. It kinda seems like the opposite of Wrongful Imprisonment, i.e; someone should be in jail, but they're not. Just start sending out emails to various law groups, maybe find an amateur cold-case/detective forum, where people try (and sometimes succeed) in solving old murder cases. If anyone would know how to or who to get it to, it would be them. I wish you the best of luck, this actually sounds interesting. Would asking for the details be... compromising of the case? If not, could you explain a little better? no names or anything, just a basic "Police think X killed himself, but A, B, and C (who are incarcerated) witnessed... blank.... happen, and when I looked into the details, i found... blank... and that's why X couldn't have killed himself", and then fill in the blanks?

Will do. Would have never thought about those groups but no, I don't think the case would be compromised. As a matter of fact I'm sure somones's been on to what I know before and called out the people for it, they just lack a proper understanding of key elements and evidence that they don't understand the ramifications of what they are saying, especially leos when asked to retort. I would be thoroughly surprised if you have not heard of this case- it's probably one of the most famous. However, I don't want to cause a stir because A) if foul play is at hand the suspect would have more than enough time to maneuver defensively and B) the federal prisoners have no prior exposure to the situation and would be testifying, as experts, on drug manufacturing. I wouldn't want to tarnish their thought processes in any way.

I'm no lawyer, I've just been involved with and worked for the aforementioned, and all entailing life circumstances but my part in the play is long over now and rectified with the judicial system and society.

I'm pooring more research into it during spare time but objectively speaking I have found nothing that could point to the conclusion that was accepted by the state and the people.
I think it's about finding the right person to get the ball rolling I suppose, me being not the most valuable member of society, however knowledgeable on a subject. I'd really like to pin the Potential murderer but I'm sure he or she has been preparing for this for years or is already dead.

Single-Wheel Skateboard patent issues? by Scigui - Tue, 12 Jan 2016 13:01:03 EST ID:YuhxTRcD No.45041 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I really like the idea of the self-balancing single wheel skateboard.
Goes 15+MPH, durable, sturdy, and best of all simple.

I'm wanting to re-create it with my own looks/ideas, but the patent issues for this type of technology seem cutthroat. Some other company was shut down at CES for having a similar one but the concept is so simple.

I don't know much of anything about the laws for these types of things I'm just a creative/techsavy type. Could have one made within a few weeks but am I going to get shut down because I have a board that uses a microchip to scan various times per second as to how a rider is leaning in order to deliver thrust in one direction or another? Or is it more of a design issue? Can the original creator of the skateboard come out and sue other skateboard companies for making them later on, demanding money and claiming they caused "irreparable damage" by making their own renditions of the same thing?

In all honesty I wouldn't mind selling them once I get a really good one made. The apparent original company for these "Future Motion" is selling them for upwards of $1,500-$2,500 and realistically I think I could make the same thing (if not better) for around $700-$800

True, and I think the looks of it are what I'm most worried about now.
The cheap stuff existing in the market isn't of too much concern, as it will always exist, but if I were to do it I would want to separate myself from the competition by hosting an interactive store where people can come test the products, as well as a full service-center so if anything happens to somebody's board I can get the repairs done on the spot. Having parts / materials brought in separately is even easier than the assembled product too, so I could just try to bring in everything independently and assemble here to avoid customs being a pain and detaining a shipment for months just because it "looks like it might be something similar to that one thing".

If I get in buddy-buddy with a company that already makes them, perhaps I could get manufacturing rights / permission to modify. I do have a factory at my disposal but it's for other things..

I need a finished resume by tonight. I want to make it for general IT support or entry level computer jobs. I have no college, no relevant experience, no references. What are some easy tricks to fill up a page with? I thought lawyers would probably be the perfect people to ask. Right now I am using a resume builder and adding the suggestions it gives me. But there is still a huge gap in the page. Should I just lie a whole bunch? Are there any specific tricks that would help me look more legit?

Thanks in advance
