UK here.

My next door neighbour is on a 2 year licence for armed robbery.
Recently he has been making my life very difficult.

He was charged last month with 2 counts of wasteful employment of police and 1 of communication conveying false info.

He rang police alleging there was a man with a gun on the street, armed police attended at an address up the road and then I was visited and gave a witness statement as He gave my details as the caller.

Over the past few days I have received threats of violence from the man on social media which I have reported to the police.

My question is, how can he be removed? has he broken his licence at all?
The police are telling me to dial 999 if he approaches me and I am waiting for a call back to arrange an interview at a station, which I hope I can be escorted to.

If it is prosecutable a district attorney may help. File a case is a federal district court, Time bareed so act quick, sue for damages. A lot of work. So civil attorney is your safest bet.

Live in Wisconsin.
Sold a car in march. Never sold a car in my life before. The dude who I sold it to told me that a bill of sale isn't needed and I just needed to sign the title.

Guess it got abandoned somewhere in PA. Now I have court (which I entered a not guilty plea by mail) and am gonna have like a $600 fine for abandoning a vehicle.

This is just the beginning of my trouble. You see, I did a bit of investigating and found the tow yard that took my car. They told me that the car is now in the salvage yard, however, it sat in there yard all summer and got a fee of $8500. I was never contacted and never knew about this until now.

What do I do about this? I tried contacting the bar association in the county, I was directed to them as they could supposedly give me a free consulation. I have yet to hear back from them.

You aren't legally required to have a bill of sale in a lot of places, but you've probably figured out that you should always have one anyway. The really important part however is the title transfer. If you can't prove that the transaction was completed, you might end up eating the $600. The good news is that there's probably a statutory limit to the amount a salvage yard could make you pay.

If you canceled insurance on the vehicle, the tag should be invalid/turned over to the state. If you have record of telling the insurance company it was sold then you could probably get out of it.

Bills of sale hold little water in court without a witness signature.

They use that ANPR fuckery here too. Except they automatically ticket you for everything and mail it to the vehicle owner. Lots of kids will drive their parents car and get fines and then the parents will get their insurance rates fucked and they will get ~200 dollar fines because Timmy Fuckstick went 80 in a 70mph zone.

If OP isn't paranoid enough, it is extremely easy to build a database on driving habits and locations by simply using a method similar to POST data that they use to log chan users information.

If you get a knock on the door do not answer the door. You do not have to talk to the police. If they have a warrant that is completely different and in that case give them your full name then use your 5th amendment rights and say NOTHING until you get to talk to your lawyer.

If you get a ticket in the mail contest it. It's unlikely anyone will show up to court on the prosecution's side. Find free legal help if you need it and get a lawyer if you are really worried.

something thats not really talked about on this board is the cops then have a right to detain you till you do speak to a lawyer. "i want to speak to a lawyer" doesnt mean they just let you go it means you need to get in touch with a lawyer and if you dont have one on retainer this might be a bit of a process aka you are going to be spending a night or two in a holding cell.

I don't know where you live, but in most US states 72 hours is a typical limit for detention without charge and asking for a lawyer has no bearing on that. It's certainly no magic phrase where you lose the right to walk away if you would otherwise have that right.

A friend of mines lawyer says that they might not have to appear in court for a misdemeanor violation for marijuana. Lawyer also told them that they pushed back the court date. Friend has never met lawyer in person because they do not live in that state. The credentials of the lawyer seem to check out, but do they have reasons to fear? (friend is paranoid) Friend is facing their first charges of possession.

it's a conservative state in a not so conservative county. Friend is wondering if not appearing in court yourself for a misdemeanor violation of a small amount of marijuana is common/should they be worried. They do not want to be traveling through this state again, get pulled over, and told that they skipped court.

What's up /law/. I got a speeding ticket back in July and instead of paying the fine and all that bullshit I figured I should have my day in court. The pig caught me at 1 am on a nearly empty road while hiding under a bridge, and he felt very smug handing me the ticket and saying it could be doubled since construction workers were present. I literally didn't see them and when he pointed them out they were on TOP of the bridge I was driving under. Plus it was 1 am so how would I know they were working.

I've done some research on fighting the ticket and I have a chance if I can prove that I was driving safely under the road conditions even if i was speeding. I think I have enough evidence for this. I wont argue that I wasn't speeding because I probably was, but not by much. Anyway, since I think I have a shot should I represent myself, or get a traffic lawyer? Will a lawyer get me off easily, and are they expensive? Court is 2 weeks from now, but I will try to push it back as far as I can to waste the officer's time so he doesn't show up and I get off even easier.

Officers do not show up for basic speeding tickets. Plain and simple.

Double fines are often imposed for roadwork present. No matter if workers are even present. Just that these are construction zones. Were work is often done around the clock.

Surely there were no signs whatsoever coming up to this, right?
Just a guess, maybe a $120 fine, 3 points lost. Points replenished after a year?

never mind looks like I'm gonna be OK, the citation wasn't filed until the 29th
NB since I'm not wiggin' anymore
would it be a smart move to plead not guilty? Ticket came with 3 points on my license, do I have a decent chance of getting a more lenient penalty if I go through the effort to schedule a court date? for reference, I got clocked doing 60 in a 40 zone, but they were using vascar and it was most likely less than that (by how much I dont know, 60 would be flying on that road and I remember the usual traffic -- dont see how I could have gotten over 50). Perhaps in acknowledgement of the margin of error of his speed calculation, the officer ticketed me for doing 10 over the posted 40mph limit. He actually got me on the same road a couple months back on my way home at night doing what I will admit was 60 in a 40 zone, and gave me a ticket for going 5 over the posted 45. He wrote on the ticket that I was doing 60 in a 40, though, and I'm worried that fighting the ticket will be difficult if I have to actually argue the case to a judge. How good is the chance the officer just won't show up?

Lawless people. You will not have a warrant put out for you, Pleading not guilty will accomplish nothing. The officer will not show up regardless of anything, this would not change anything whatsoever anyway if he/she did or did not.

If the citation does not require a mandatory court appearance pay the fine asap. or you will be subjected to more points taken from you. Read it. Should be basically the same across the board in the US.

Pay fine or appear at a hearing, 2 maybe three choices, guilty, not guilt,

'no contest' may be allowed but changes nothing.

The court would not accept a not guilty plea. It is not a jail-able offense.

Sounds like you got cut some slack regardless what the officer wrote aside from what could have been the outcome of points taken.
Best possible outcome of appearing it taling with the DA and get one point taken off at best. Read you ticket carefully.

Those and really human rights were the main objectives were and are the focus to bypass. War crimes. whatever. Look at Iraq, we lied to the UN, we voted to not be bound by 'any' rules of conduct of human rights.

Recently voted for ability to bring Saudi Arabia to account it's 'possible' role for
victims and remedies for their roles, if any.

Then very shortly after reconsideration of this measure realization of the repercussions that may follow. In other words, the 9/11 victims, were never a realistic consideration because our intentions were not about the victims to begin with. Let alone ability to bring them to an international court let alone to US federal courts would have been impossible, let alone our partnership with our so-called allies, (Saudi Arabia) would be strained as well as just making a massive disaster like at a mass scale of foreign diplomatic relations.

We have more reason to be have held accountable for our actions than
like any nation on the planet. We voted strongly to enjoy immunity for
our actions, terrorism was a method of accomplishing this.

So we wanted to Saudi Arabia for it's 'possible' role in 9/11, yet will not extradite
detainees and the disappeared to US federal courts to stand for their crimes.
Yet somehow wanted to hold Saudis for their 'possible roles of 9/11 in federal courts on US soil. How I see this id recklessly rolled out?

I'm going in for an interview soon for a job working for a local city in WI. I'm not sure yet if they're requiring a drug test. I haven't smoked for about a week and I usually smoked regularly ~3 times a week, so I'm not sure how I'd fare yet. But anyway, because this job is technically with local government, what happens if I fail the drug test? Is it filed away somewhere? Is it a "oh well, can't hire you, sorry" and part ways? What exactly can happen? Any input is appreciated, thanks!

I was recently contacted via email from my employer stating "You were scheduled to report for work on 9/24/16 at 10:30 am as described below. You did not show up for your scheduled shift and failed to notify me of your absence. I attempted to contact you via telephone today 9/24/16 at 2:42 pm regarding your absence. Please be advised that your absence from work was without notice and unauthorized. Your employment status with (Company) may be in jeopardy. You must respond to me via telephone or email within 24 hours of the date and time of this email to address your failure to report to work and communicate accordingly and to confirm your future work availability. Please know that if I have not heard from you by the deadline above, your employment will be separated due to Job Abandonment which is deemed a voluntary resignation per (Company) Attendance Policy. Should you have any other questions or concerns promptly contact Human Resources"

My question is regarding the language of Voluntary Resignation and if that is simply a fancy term for Fired or Terminated or is it stating that I personally quit my employment of my own willingness. The reason I ask is because I did not respond to the email within the time frame and due to my states rules on firing I am to be compensated by the next business day if I am fired.

>Oh you weren't fired, you chose to voluntarily resign. See? It's right here in your employment contract.

Depends how that jives with state law though, and if you have the horses to challenge them if it's even possible.

Start looking for a new job, I don't think you're getting payed in the next day or two. Which date did they officially 'resign' you on?

since when does it matter what circumstances led to your discontinuation of employment with a company? i am pretty sure companies are legally obligated to compensate you for services provided to the company up until the second you no longer work there. even if you were only clocked for like 2 hours of the pay period, as a random example, they still gotta pay you for the 2 hours

or have i been wrong all along?

what country you in homie?

That's not at issue. OP claimed his state (So I assume he's in the U.S.) mandated that he be paid the very day following his termination, rather than at the end of the pay-period. Which seemed pretty petty, but I assumed he was in some kind of bind. I've never heard of such a thing though, seems pretty ridiculous

Given the glacial pace of this board. I'd bet OP's already been paid by now anyway and the thread can just die.

Depends on your state, I know in Texas, and probably most at will states job abandonment/ no call no shows are considered voluntary resignation/termination or quitting, and makes you ineligible for most termination rights and unemployment benefits.

If you were flat our fired. Flinstone your fired. Then if that i the law then I guess it could stand. You should have contacted them if you wanted to keep your job.
You failed to show up and or respond, so it was on your part you resigned.

Now if you were fired like came to work intoxicated and screwed up, a liability,
then you could be fired.

I have willfully resigned every job I ever lost I believe by not showing up, by at least calling in with an excuse before during or after. Expect you paycheck on
the regular pay date.
