Blago as 'it's known as was a scumbag, is a scumbag and the sentence fits the (partial) crimes for which he committed. Don't see many liberals or any for that matter seeking his release. This gives public corruption an OK. By the president no less. Blago's extreme arrogance and open corruption, many countries he would be dead by now, punished by death for corruption.

So, I want to make sure that, if certain assholes kill me, that people know why. However, for various reasons, I can't just go to the police and tell them. Is there any way I can put the evidence in a safe deposit box and then have it open and publicized if I am killed?

How can I make sure that it is executed if this happens?

Some police officer actually forgot to tell me and forgot to tell everyone else that if you combine psychedelics (lsd, shooms, ...) with cannabis in high doses alone then it's actually not the same activity as drug use but belongs to a term considered shamanism and that HUMANITY WOULD NOT HAVE SURVIVED if people do not use this shamanism so they will not become a shithead and start a fight because they are bastards that also are assholes instead of being kind normal people that come along with eachother.

So a few years ago someone I know was pulled over in their vehicle because according to the deputy she touched the white line on the road with her front right wheel. He searched her and found that she had a prescription bottle with 2 of the same meds but different dosages and arrested her. When she got to the Jail he asked her if she had anything else on her because if he took her in and they found it they would charge her with crossing guard lines with contraband.
After she admitted to having marijuana on her she was charged with that as well.

After being bonded out the charges for the pills were dropped because she proved she had a prescription for both but was stuck with possession charges for marijuana.

She was sentenced to 3 months in jail and I'm wondering. The bond company nor the court reimbursed the woman for her bond about the pills in wrong container.

Technically speaking the deputies made an illegal arrest for the meds so shouldnt the other charges be dropped too considering evidence was obtained through an illegal arrest.

Her court appointed attorney told her "You have no rights, they can pull you over whenever they want they don't have to have a cause." Then not only that but the crooked court appointed attorney refused to submit her non guilty plea and forced a guilty plea to the judge on her behalf after she told him she didn't want to plea guilty. This all happened in cherokee county georgia btw.

Anyways. / what do you guys think about this?

You don’t have to be in custody to file a habeas, I’m assuming these are felony charges so you have 4 years from the date of the plea.

I live in the UK, I'm currently studying my PhD with the intention of getting a research job in the US. I've looked into H1-B/EB2 visas for "Advanced Degree holders" but I've a few questions.

I have a conviction in 2014 for possession of a few ecstasy pills, now considered "spent" here in the UK which means it no longer comes up in background checks. I'm aware that when applying for a visa - and then subsequently a green card - you have to get a UK police certificate which shows your entire conviction history as the US does not consider the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. This means that my conviction from 2014 would show up in my application.

Now what I was wondering is, how do I get around this? Do I necessarily have to supply a police certificate for H1-B/EB2 visas or is it only for direct green card applications? Is it possible that I could apply for a visa, work for a few years and then apply for the green card whilst IN the US.

I'm aware that for travelling, if you just don't answer the "moral turpitude" question on the visa application, they're unlikely to investigate further but green cards are, of course, more stringent. I saw that there were no waivers for drugs convictions aside from small weed possession so what I'm wondering is, is there absolutely any chance of immigrating to the US and to somehow circumvent this or am I basically screwed for that?

Most likely they will ask if you have ever been arrested. Simple as that. If it cannot show up in any background check of an actual conviction I would say no real reason to fret. But they may ask if you have ever been convicted. There are likely immigration groups that can offer help for no charge where you are.

That would know exactly what can and cannot be asked of you.

I think for UK, you need to supply an ACRO document for immigration which shows any history of conviction.

Hey /law/, hoping I don't need to do anything with this info but I do need some help

I'm taking an online course this summer that uses the lockdown exam browser (https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=XuX8WoeAycs)

Part of it says that an instructore might require you to use a webcam.

My question is, there's no way a state funded school (U.S., Virginia) can require me to film footage of my residence right? This is a state school with a campus, they have to let me test there right? If they try to tell me "No you have to test from your home with a camera on" how would I even challenge that? What kind of lawyer would I need?

Thank you

If you like the idea of home schooling, then by all means do so. They aren't asking
you to film your house. Just make it so you and your webcam are conversing.

Surely the instructor would like yo converse with their students. There is online psychiatry that needs the client to actually appear in real time. The school must be approved and likely licensed to use remote teaching.

Hi /law/. I was at a festival somewhere in Europe and got caught by security on entry with quite a big stash of drugs. All for personal use, but a Fear and Loathing-esque collection and one very illegal substance I had several small baggies of which they may have got the wrong idea about. I use this substance a lot at festivals and have a tendency to lose it when I'm on it, which is why I brought multiple bags of it so I don't lose it all. But they may not have thought that.

Context - I live in a country with not the strictest drug laws in the world but far from liberal or decriminalised

They detained me for an hour or so and kept going off to get people and muttering things to each other. I begged them not to call the police. I explained I had mental health issues and self medicate with some of the substances. I kept getting mixed messages as to whether they were getting the police but finally I heard one of them say to another "he's got quite a lot of that one we might have to call them". I was later told the police were being called (after being asked if I had money to arrange travel off the land) and to wait for the news.

I never saw any police. I was finally told everything had been recorded with the police but they were not going to arrest me due to the mental health issues I described. I was simply told if I was caught doing it again I would be busted for both times and a bigger case made against me. I was then escorted off the land and made my way home safe with no trouble. Do the police really do this?? I was caught red handed, with all the evidence they needed to get a solid conviction and I am being asked to believe the police decided to let me go because arresting me might be traumatic. It makes no sense at all but that is what happened and now I'm shit scared wondering if they are going to come for me.

I get police can sometimes be really busy and have bigger fish to fry but literally all they needed to do was come and collect me and it would have been the easiest conviction they got all year. Police arrest people with mental health all the time. why would they treat me differently? Basically... The absurdity of this situation is making me doubt was I was told. What if they didn't want to call the police because they knew my life would be ruined, but didn't want me telling people they let me get away with it? That would make a lot of sense but the uncertainty is killing me.

Have you ever heard of police refusing people to arrest people for serious crimes because of mental health issues like this or do you think security lied to me?

Security and others likely didn't want to deal with it. If it was like private land, then even more reason not to do so. If you had means to travel from there, then that was likely a better part the deciding factor. I doubt they called the police, or the police were capable of responding if they said they should check it out.

So here's how it is...

I got caught breaking into some cars and in my state, NV, that is a burglary and a felony. So the official charges break down to 4 burglary felonies, 2 damage to property misdemeanors, and one unlawful possession of a debit card gross misdemeanor.

Now I can't in any way afford a high powered attorney and my public defender isn't too enthusiastic about fighting my case.

The current offer is plea no contest to one felony and the gross misdemeanor and the DA won't oppose diversion court and Ill pay restitution and do probation but have a felony on my record.

The original plea offer was plea no contest to one felony and pay restitution and do probation with no mention of diversion court.

One lawyer I spoke to said I have a good case to just argue for diversion court after taking the original plea offer and that sounds good to me cuz I want to keep my record clean in the long run but my appointed attorney said once a new deal is on the table the old one is now unavailable.

Does anyone know anything about this? What do you guys think I should do?

So i'm guilty of selling someone a car the incorrect way. I didn't walk them to the sec of state and have it transferred, i just wrote on the title and handed it off. Didn't get a bill of sale :(

Now that guy who i sold it to committed a hit and run. No one was hurt just a little car damage. He took off on foot.
So the insurance company of the other driver says im liable, and the police say im liable.
I tried to get my phone calls and texts from that day i sold it so i could track the dude from craigslist down out of the 10 ppl I called trying to sell it. Since its past 90 days ago Boost mobile says i need a court order to get my own history...........

the thing is i would rather take that charge than have the courts going through my texts so IDK what to do now thinking about just waiting it out. There's a chance the Flint police wont even file a criminal charge because they are so busy with real stuff, and the insurance company might not come after me because i aint got shit for them to take rly.
You guys think i should talk to a lawyer about this asap?? You think i should hire a private investigator to track the dude down?

Fascists are the prima donnas of identity politics so in fighting amongst them completely revolves around controlling the perceived identities of both themselves and the other.

Any environmentalist turning to fascism as a method to affect material conditions will find that material conditions are at the bottom of any fascists priorities. First and foremost is cosmetics.

So basically I've lived in this place for a year and a half and been lying that my landlady lives here who basically is in divorce and moved real quick to another dude -- they lie that she lives here, otherwise the house goes into foreclosure because the ex doesn't want it anymore.

They've turned the place into a rooming house, and basically threw a bunch of responsibilities on me at a time where I really needed to live somewhere.

Now they want me to lie to a bylaw officers face and got us to rearrange every room and etc to look legit. I got two days, and basically, I'm trusted soi am going to be actually speaking to the bylaw person.

This might be my only opportunity to provide both my evidence and blow this whole fucker into the water. It's multi-millions in under the table rent and house/property value basically stolen from some slightly rich, but clearly poor dude somewhere out there.

They've disrespected me at every turn and even get me to pay them more rent while I do all the gardening and etc I don't even legally need to do. And this is basically my only way of real revenge.

I like my roommates, but holy fuck, they sit idly and let me do all the shit for them.

I have a place I can hunker down at for 3 months and am really thinking about calling a moving company, getting my stuff safely out of here, blowing the lid with the bylaw person the next day and then calling the tenancy branch to break whatever the fuck this has been for a year and a half.

I know I can find another place or etc. And start this all over again right, without being made to feel like I'm worthless.

Really, help a brother out here. What do you think? Just from the broad sort of thing? It might sound overreacting. But we literally had a meeting today, was basically tasked with changing all the locks and moving furniture and etc to fulfill their lie while paying more than other people and this that the other thing. And there's no fucking written notice.

I did two hours of yard work, and I don't even fucking have to. I'm being forced to take a day off work. These people do not respect other people. And I have the feeling as soon as this blows over -- it gets worse. I'm so stressed out that I gotta take tomorrow off too.

So clearly, everybody's gonna hate me for their own selfish reasons, so I'm thinking it's absolutely necessary to make sure my belongings are all safe? The only issue, when I blow this lid, I'm doing it in their presence. But I mean, the bylaw people can help me right? Like if I blow this big of a bomb up, they got to be able to speak to the tenancy board for me right? But then again, I'll just take the total loss of the deposit and rent I just gave them to do this. I could give a fuck.

But given how big of a deal this would be financially... Should I maybe be worried about getting lynched?

Any help would be appreciated. At the point my stuff all out, even if somebody snitches, they can't have the inspection happen and thus, cannot avoid having them talk to me. Fuck would it feel good, and I can afford it.

And i just don't see any legal ramifications whatsoever other than the nonlegal ramification to get attacked/lynched. I doubt these people would do it, but a few million dollars in theft will make anybody do anything. Should i call my local police department to make sure?

The other night I was stopped because I may have not come to a complete stop at a stop sign. I was leaving the bar at about 3 AM in Missouri. I gave him my license but wasnt able to find my insurance card, which ended up being buried in my glovebox. The officer suspected me of drunk driving and began to do the finger thing where you follow with your eyes. At that point I had stopped drinking about 7 hours prior and I know I was sober enough to drive. I was instructed to get out of my car and do the rest of the field sobriety test which I was passing with flying colors, but it seemed like he was purposely prolonging it for the slightest hint. They put me in cuffs and were about to take me to the station when I requested they breath test me on the spot to conclusively prove my sobriety, to which they refused and said I can only blow at the station.

When I got to the station, he said a blew a .7 which is twice the legal limit. It wasn't until I was home and calm enough that I realized the legal limit is .08 and twice that is .16 and at .7 I would be dead. I should have got a good look at the device because Im afraid they will fabricate records, the officer even told me he knows how to work on the breath device which was kind of ominous.

I have a lawyer but I'm pretty sure he's just a civil case worker and Im not sure how good he would be, but he has known my dad for over 20 years.

The officer said my license would be immediately suspended but after checking the dmv site it is still valid. For first offense DUI in Missouri it looks like 5 days jail/60 day suspended license, but the officer told me it would be suspended for a year starting that day.

So basically, Im pretty sure I blew a .07 which is legal, I have insurance when they said I didn't, and they got me for not wearing a seatbelt when in reality I had just removed it when I was stopped. I can't prove that I stopped at the sign but Im not worried about that.

If I show my valid insurance and my breath test concludes I was sober, then all Im looking at is a minor traffic citation (failure to stop at a sign/seatbelt) right?

This is what I'm thinking. I really think he did mess a lot up, lile he read my Miranda rights after I had already been arrested and blew into the breathalyzer which I think is wrong, and there was no 15 minute observational period. He pulled up my record and saw a possession charge I got 7 years ago (which is the only charge Ive ever had, which was expunged and I knew it) and was saying stuff to himself like "possession of hallucinogens in 2012!" as if he was trying to validate himself and his mistakes. It turns our my lawyer handled a case where his client was driving drunk and was involved in a fatal accident, and he got the case dropped. So I think Im safe lmao, but I'll definitely report back with everything the officer fucked up once I have all the proof and whatnot.

In the state of Texas, in the United States,

Is it legal to sell an item chosen at random?

For instance, let's say I had a box with sealed cards arrayed in a random order, and the customer would, after having payed 5 USD, choose whichever they wanted. Within would be a lot number, which would correspond to their prize. Some prizes would cost less than 5 USD, some more, but neither by very much. Maybe they would be different categories (like "knowledge" or "food") which would graduate in price.

I've tried to look it up, but I can't find the right way to describe the idea to google, and 'wheel of fortune' brings up the game show every time. I don't think it's really the same as a raffle, since everyone is sure to get something

So it's my understanding that intellectual property laws only prohibit people from profiting off of someone else's IP and that it doesn't stop people from just using their IP for themselves, like you can draw a picture of mickey mouse and put him on your fridge, but if you try and sell that picture, Disney would sue your ass. Is this correct, or do they just not go after people who use it for personal purposes because they don't really care enough but it's actually illegal?

Also, say you were to just give that picture away, or you built something, say a coffee maker, from schematics in someone else's patent and then just gave that away for free, would that be legal?
