How much should I expect to pay? by Ernest Caffingford - Mon, 20 Mar 2017 05:24:11 EST ID:w9qlNc4Q No.45788 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I got caught going way too fast on a rural route. I was going 80 in a 60 and got pulled by an undercover car.

I've decided it's worth it to get a lawyer to try and plead my way into traffic school. I'm actually feeling pretty remorseful about it, I'm just depressed and driving through rural areas is bleaker than fuck. I have no other defense.

I'm in VA, does anyone know how much I can expect to pay for a traffic lawyer?

There is a reason they calibrate their radar guns. To prove in fact one was speeding the burden would have to show how fast one was actually traveling. A simple person was exceeding the speed limit doesn't cut it here.

As far as beating a speeding ticket, here there have been husband driving wife to hospital who is in labor and about to drop at any moment. And the DA has thrown out the ticket because the speeding was reasonable considering.

A faulty speedometer has gotten my associate off when he showed up with a broken speedometer able, and a receipt showing in good faith that in regard to recently a in a few days before it broke, and immediately replaced it after the ticket. Good enough? The DA was fine with it. The judge was actually very happy that person took the initiative to utilize the justice system in a positive and I might add resourceful manner.

A few days did lapse, because of no time to fix the cable. The officer was told this. The was no realistic way for the officer to verify this, nor verify when the
cable did break let alone again, if it was actually broken.

There are other instances. Yes fighting a minor ticket would be foolish unless,,

Well for us to use radar evidence we have to show the same. I'm curious what state you're in however because that is unusual for the burden to be proving the actual speed.

The rest of your examples aren't beating a ticket, they are just justifying the speeding. I negotiate reductions all the time for people who can give me a reason to. Doesn't mean they've beaten a ticket, and having that attitude is a way to go from a reduction to having charges added (which i regularly do as well).

In your first example if the guy was being a dick in the negotiations I would add reckless endangerment and in the second I would add failure to maintain required equipment.

People should try to negotiate their tickets, but be respectful and don't demand/expect any reduction or it's not going to go well.

>because that is unusual for the burden to be proving the actual speed.

Not really. That is what speed guns are for. The calibraations is to ensure that the speeds is somewhat acurate. Say doing 35, in a school zone, where the speed is say 10 MPH, for say 2,000ft. It happens all the time. It has been shown over and over and over, that officers(s) did not calibrate speed guns.

Um may be accurate, it is time resource comsuming to calibrate guns every morning, evening, yet some departments do just that. MY take, a gun shoulnd not be way off if not calibrated in two days, but, it can

Case dismissed because of that. It is not uncommon, that people I guess "beat' speeeding tickets, because of miscalibration or as well not calibrating their speed guns.. It does happens pretty constantly. simply, dis your calibrate your gun that morning? (no,) enough to say get past a speeding ticket, guilty, knowingly, unknown.

Instant get off if there is no evidence of calibration. Ubless one is doinf like 80 in a 40. Just foor fact, radar guns are to be tested daily before shifts. If not, yea two days. #. a week.

Even if speed guns were calibrayted corrrectly days before, and still correct, but not matched/calibradeted before a shift, but very accurate, people can beat these cases because of this simple fact that they were not calibrated to procedure..

So, in challangeing simple exceeding speedi-limit cases, the best bet is to challange speed calibration testing. Generally before every shift, if it is not tested, it may become invalid. in reality, calibrating speed guns is trivial, but resource inrensive as well. Say one tested gun # two days before, why shud it be retested a day later? well, that is how, peole get off from speeding tickets. Simply, officer need not lie and say it was calibradiated, before traffic shift, as two days before it was fine. Records do indicate that claibration was done, when , by who, etc.

It is what it is. Know all Jr. attorney, should know, that merely exceeding a speed limit, is nothing, it proves nothing. No proof that speed limit was exceeded without proof of a radar gun, as well recomended calibrations before each shift.
As well after. These prove to be time resource comsuming.

This is the basic way folks get off from speeding ticklts. Simple but true.

Prosecutor here again:

I'm in a podunk area of a deep south state and even here not calibrating speed detection devices literally never happens. I've probably resolved 10K speeding cases and i've never seen it. I've gotten radar evidence suppressed twice (for reasons other than lack of calibration) and still got convictions because the officer can testify he paced the car or did a visual estimate.

spoilers: jurors fucking hate assholes who waste jury time on speeding tickets and judges are all to happy to throw the book at idiots who fight them.

I am in Missouri. My friend and I are both prescribed the same drug with the same dosage. (Alzprazolam, 0.5 mg.) Ssometimes I'll front him some of my rx until he gets his filled. He then gives me an equal amount back when he gets his. The problem? Although it's the same drug, mine are round and peach and his are pink and oval. Although I've had prescription drugs where the imprints aren't written on the bottle, that's not the case with Walmart's pharmacy. If I got pulled over and searched and had the same drug of the same dosage as I take in my prescription bottle, but made by the same manufacturer, would I get in trouble? What if the label didn't say what the pills are supposed to look like?
I also have a habit of leaving the majority of my prescriptions in an extra bottle at home, and carrying with me only what I need that day, to make sure I don't lose the while script if my purse gets stolen or something. I also have a prescription for Adderall IR with which I do the same. Would I get in trouble for having a bottle that's old, or a recently filled prescription where the majority of pills are missing? The labels for the Adderall say they expire after 30 days of being filled. Would storing pills in an expired container mean that I no longer have a lawful use for them? Is putting them in a smaller container (like one of those weekly ones) illegal? Thank you.

Yeah all of that is illegal. In my state at least having pills in a pill organizer in your own home is illegal (whether anyone would be prosecuted is a different story.

Same thing will all that you said. Everything you describe above is illegal. However, whether anyone would prosecute you, who knows.

Good luck.

Opinion; say one gets 90 Alzprazolam a month, new script, it really would not make sense to carry all of those around all of the time. Carry around your prescription verification stub deal to prove it's your script. As for Less than what ;should' be ther, it's not the cops job to monitor possible over-usage. As for the mis-matched labeling, possibly problematic. But police all the really would see
is that you are prescribed the drug, can say it's from an older prescription.
I change pharmacies that carry different brands occasionally. I don't see they would have the ability 'really' to track down what pharmacies you use and 'investigate' when you got what brand and corrrelate with the labeling.
as for carrying loose pills. Maybe just keep a few in an old bottle just the same.

Ok, so here's the backstory. I went to prison in 2015 for a bunch of shit (agrravated bat, 4 simple battery, 5 simple burglary, 3rd DUI) that on 4/20/15 got plead out to 3rd DUI (5 yrs, suspend 4 w/ 5 yrs probation) and Unauthorized Entry Into an Inhabited Dwelling (6 yrs suspend 5) I got out in May of 2016 with credit for time served and in June of 16 I went back for 2nd ° Battery, Battery on a PO, Simple Battery, and Simple Burglary which were dropped with the agreement that I would have my probation revoked and serve the suspended sentence. After earning good time I got out on June 12, 2017.

Anyways, while I was serving time my uncle (70) and aunt (67) died within 2 months of each other (April/June of 16). They were both pos who have taken advantage of my grandmother for years to the tune of millions of dollars. Well my Aunt was doing all the will crap before she died (probably why she died, karmas a bitch greedy ass) and since I was locked up my grandmother FINALLY saw how shit her kids were an axed them and their no show families out of the will and made my sister executrix / trustee of her will and estate going forward as well as granting her power of attorney. This is all great, don't really care at the time etc.

Well fast forward to July of 2017 and I am busy trying to do things for my twins, their mother, my parole officer etc and while I was aware my grandmother was selling parts of 7,000 acres she owns for years it's just recently that she has been having motor/mental problems so I didn't think much when I saw she was selling her father's old home place/farm.

The problem about the land in question is that it's worth 9-11k/acre and original listing price was 300k (29 acres) at the beginning of July. She closed on that piece Tuesday for 165k. I've had SEVERAL people call me since then congratulating etc until they ask what we got for it.

Supposedly a bunch of people were willing to buy it at around 8k or even 12k for parts of it. Thankfully there is still about 1,000 acres across various parts of her lil empire that going forward I will oversee but is there any legal action I could take against the realtor/buyers? My grandmother didn't even realize she w…

Selling property below market value doesn't sound good but isn't necessarily against your grandmother's best interests and depending on her mental state it's not surprising that she wouldn't know about it.

I was wondering if anyone was familiar with whether or not you can use freedom of religion as a legal case for possession of psychotropic mushrooms. I live in California by the way. I unfortunately don't have any, nor am I involved in any legal matter with them, I was just curious about it. Considering all the bullshit people are getting away with doing these days and just crying "religious freedom" to get their way, I would hope that I could call upon the millennia-old commonly known concept of religious use of substances as a legitimate use of this concept.

Anyone know of this coming up, being tried before? What juries have decided?

I am buying a house in Iowa where there is a hot tub. The current owner, B, was previously selling this house on contract, and the buyer bought said hot tub. He last made a payment in January, then moved out of state has not responded to a certified letter from B who had to go through a bunch of legal bullshit to regain ownership.

From what I understand, this guy has one year to come claim his stuff, which really seems like it won't happen. Is that one year from when the certified letter was sent? It's also legally supposed to be in "storage" (I guess just sitting where it is with the cover on collecting leaves) so my real question is: Could I be in any... hot water... if I clean it up, fill it, and do some soaking with topless babes in it before it's officially mine? Chances are he won't show up, and if he does he won't care; I'd just like to know what I'm getting into.

chlorine is destroyed by heat, bacteria is more likely to grow in heat. you need to drain and fill it regularly because scale will form due to too many dissolved solids and heat. all around, id avoid a hot tub unless you want to constantly be checking the chemicals (im talking all the fucking time, once a day min).

another thought, a hot tub is lets say, 10 to 15 times as many gallons as a bathtub. idk if id use another persons bath water so how many times are you going to let someone use the hot tub before you switch out the water.

Like you said, without the facts there's no way to tell you whether it's an A or B class misdemeanor, and there's no way to advise you of the chances of diversion, because that's a contract between you and the prosecutor and varies by jurisdiction.

In my jurisdiction it's not a diversion case though.

This age-old debate has been argued back and forth with no definitive answers. It seems courts have ruled both ways on this throughout the past.
It's written that we have a right to travel, but it's been argued that it does not specify we have the right to use a vehicle. The right to travel constitutes any other means besides a motor vehicle; walk, ride a horse, a bike, swim, canoe, whatever. However, I can't ride a horse on the highway, and many roads are far too dangerous to walk and do not provide walkways. Reasonable means of travel mandates the use of a motor vehicle in today's times, or you're breaking other laws like "obstructing traffic".


“The right of a citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, by horsedrawn carriage, wagon, or automobile, is not a mere privilege which may be permitted or prohibited at will, but a common right which he has under his right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Under this constitutional guaranty one may, therefore, under normal conditions, travel at his inclination along the public highways or in public places, and while conducting himself in an orderly and decent manner, neither interfering with nor disturbing another’s rights, he will be protected, not only in his person, but in his safe conduct.”


Thompson v.Smith, 154 SE 579, 11 American Jurisprudence, Constitutional Law, section 329, page 1135 “The right of the Citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, in the ordinary course of life and business, is a common right which he has under the right to enjoy life and liberty, to acquire and possess property, and to pursue happiness and safety. It includes the right, in so doing, to use the ordinary and usual conveyances of the day, and under the existing modes of travel, includes the right to drive a horse drawn carriage or wagon thereon or to operate an automobile thereon, for the usual and ordinary purpose of life and business.” –

Thompson vs. Smith, supra.; Teche Lines vs. Danforth, Miss., 12 S.2d 784 “… the right of the citizen to drive on a public street with freedom from police interference… is a fundamental constitutional right” -White, 97 Cal.App.3d.141, 158 Cal.Rptr. 562, 566-67 (1979) “citizens have a right to drive upon the public streets of the District of Columbia or any other city absent a constitutionally sound reason for limiting their access.”

Caneisha Mills v. D.C. 2009 “The use of the automobile as a necessary adjunct to the earning of a livelihood in modern life requires us in the interest of realism to conclude that the RIGHT to use an automobile on the public highways partakes of the nature of a liberty within the meaning of the Constitutional guarantees. . .”

It's not a debate. If you're going to travel by car on public roads you have to have a license. Bullshit sovereign citizen arguments just get you thrown in jail for pissing off the court.

Actually, I am genuinely curious why people think that there's some magic out there that if you just ~get woke breh~ certain laws don't apply to you.

Do people think that lawyers are playing by rules that don't exist for shits an giggles and if they go to court an start rambling off nonsense they read on the internet the court is just going to go "oh he got you on this one counselor, case dismissed!"

Well I think you sort of answered your own question, pseudolaw is an offspring of magical thinking. The law as practiced is recondite enough and contains enough stereotyped ritual that it provides the foundation for a parallel body of cargo-cult praxis — pseudolawyers offer all kinds of seals, incantations, and rituals that are supposed to protect you from legal consequence.

A few weeks ago a co-worker of mine (I am a supervisor) got into a yelling match with me over me asking him to do something he didn't want to do. He did not directly threaten me verbally at this point, but he is twice my size and was attempting to intimidate me; including him coming up close to me and asking "You wanna say something to me?" In a threatening tone. I contacted our director, and the other supervisor, to alert them to this. The other supervisor comes in because they live close and I was very much under the impression I was not safe at work. The co-worker that threatened me returned; thinking I was out of the office, he began to brag about how he was about to come back in and attack me.
At this, I ask him to leave for the day and all hell breaks loose. He and the other supervisor start screaming at one another, as myself and other had to hold the two back from one another or there would have been a fight. Finally he leaves the office, and having heard what happened, our director comes in to speak with him. Our director leaves, the asshole who threatened me got to work the rest of the shift. I was promised that the situation would be resolved and I was more than happy to be patient. Weeks have passed and literally nothing has been done, even the bare minimum that the director promised.
Now when have HR coming in tomorrow with an eye to fire all three of us involved. I'm at my ropes end with this company, and I've been told by a few people that if I'm fired that I'd be in my right to sue them. Is there any truth to that?

You should not sue. You should forgive him. If you don't like your job, resign and find a new one. Or find a new job, then resign. But really, forgive the guy.

Actually pulling the trigger on a suit is down the line, still. Right now, you should prepare a suit, and familiarize yourself with what that would entail, as well as the rights that are due to you.

Even if you don't feel right doing it, you need to put yourself onto the best position that you can. This guy from corporate, he doesn't k ow you at all, and won't have the slightest problem rolling over you. It's his job to do that, in fact. The only obstacle to that, will be the ones that you put up.

Hi /law/
I need some help dealing with a private investigator, specifically what they by law have access to and what they can do with the information
And alternatively what charges I can press if they release my personal information to someone who could potentially put me in danger.

Long story short; I'm basically being stalked by someone with a long history of mental illness (paranoid schizophrenia). I've complied with 2 police investigations, proved I'm alive, sane and choosing to not contact this person for my own safety. The police have agreed to keep my information hidden from the person because of their state of mind.

This person now has hired a private investigator to find out my personal information and relay it back to them.
Now as far as I know, PI's can do what they want as they don't necessarily have to follow the same laws the police do.

Is there something I can threaten the PI with to make them back off? Can I press charges against them for passing my information to someone who's a hazard to me and mentally ill? I've tried contacting legal services, the police, social workers, etc... But no one can really help me until this person actually causes me harm.
Has anyone else been in this situation or know about laws concerning private investigating?
