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?

>once a new deal is on the table the old one is now unavailable.

Yea, basically that is what it is after an agreement. Keep meeting with the DA,
just might happen to avoid a felony conviction on your record.

See what kind of better agreement you could possibly get. A weight the pros and cons.

Here's an update cuz fuck it why not.

I completed a halfway house program in a new city and am living on my own now. I've passed a few drug tests and have been being a good boy so to speak.

My final lawyer meeting is Thursday and after that it's court. I'll most likely have to do a few years of probation and hopefully drug court diversion to get the felonies off my record.

I miss smoking weed so much I can't wait, jk I will, until I can again legally

Civil forfeiture involves a written notice of forfeiture. Seized property as evidence is a totally different thing. In practical terms, police will sit on the evidence until you ask for it back, a judge forces them to release it, or the law says they can sell it.

Have t find out how to get it back. Some states can take whatever and difficult o not possible to get back without a lot of foot work. As well never get it back. A gentleman

My friend got into heroin last year. We're in wisconsin. I stopped hanging out with him around the time because i dont fuck with that shit.

I knew it was bad when he called me in march. He was selling everything he owns "To pay for a lawyer" because he got busted with an eighth of dope and some dirty needles, felony charge and misdemeanor drug possession. I bought his boom box (i know it wasnt stolen, he had it for years and a friend made it) and dipped.

Now ive been following on the court records since because i'm nosey. He got busted again in august. Another felony. Should mention before he got into heroin he had a weed charge a few years back too. Now hes been doing these 2 court cases, today he got a felony bail jumping for not showing up to piss and is currently listed in the county inmate system.

How long is this fucker gonna sit for?

Sorry, felony drug possesion and misdemeanor paraphernalia

So to clarify, he has a marijuana charge from a few years ago thats taken care of and done with but on his record, and he currently has 2 open cases of narcotics possession felonies that are unrelated and he's also facing a misdemeanor paraphernalia. and now a bail jumping felony too.

Pretty sure this dude is gonna die soon, but how long will he sit in prison if he doesn't?

family worried about an inmate who is being raped, beaten, and threatened with death by other inmates. the financial support of this inmate is also being taken advantage of by these inmates.

can prisoner's rights law help with this kind of situation? it seems that inmates have rights to be free from sexual abuse whether they're inmates or staff. can anything be done to help get them out of prison sooner? they are close to being released but that could be a year or two and this person has been in long enough and they seem to be doing better, as they have gotten their GED and furthered their education even beyond that.

a few people I talked to said one thing or another, but some info was helpful that might be relevant in this context. One person said keep calling many different places, and another said to look for a pro bono lawyer. is any of this useful? thanks.

typical lawyer answer: it depends/it's complicated.

Are there circumstances where you can recover on a civil rights suit for an inmate who is being raped, yes. Is every inmate getting raped going to be able to recover, not even close. Most probably can't.

and notice I said recover, as in money damages. getting raped isn't going to get you out of jail quicker.

Also it's pretty unlikely you need anyone who would take this pro-bono. You need to get a civil rights lawyer and get a consult. They can explain in greater detail why the inmate is probably SOL. If they do take the case they will do it on contingency and take their fees out of the damages (civil rights suits have automatic attorney's fees awarded).

Good luck.

Maine Lemons Laws: Should Dealer Pay for Replacement Part? by Rebecca Heshfure - Fri, 01 Dec 2017 03:25:09 EST ID:7iJuH1eX No.45982 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

What are the state of Maine lemon laws concerning faulty issues on cars?

Recently, I bought a used car, my first car, at a small dealership, but I encountered a slight issue with the driver door: One of the pieces in the frame has worn out (which I noticed the hour after I bought the car) and the door won't stay open. The dealer contract allows 30 days of free labor for any repairs

>Bought a used car for $5500 (Chevy Equinox) from a small, independent dealership.
>Purchase contract states that I get one month of free labor for repairs and things, but I have to cover for parts myself.

>The day I buy the car, I notice the driver seat door doesn't stick open when I push the door all the way.
>Look closer, a black piece between the car and the door has been worn out over time.
>Look into it, bring it over to the dealership, he tells me it's a "door strike"
>Talk to my mother about the situation over Thanksgiving weekend, she says that that is something that should have been taken care of before I bought the car.
>Later on, we talk over the phone, she tells me it's a safety issue and that the small dealer should cover the cost of the part, along with the labor.
>Try to talk to the dealer on the phone about the issue: he gets rude with me, tell me that it's an "issue to my liking, not an issue of safety," and that it doesn't violate any kind of federal regulation. Throughout the discussion, he constantly interrupted me and seemed evasive.

Lemon laws are warranties of last resort to protect people who buy unrepairable junk. It's not what you're looking for. Did you have the car inspected by a mechanic before purchasing it? If so there might be some liability there but I doubt it. And if not, you'll want to do that while you still have free labor.

SSI and saving money. by James Pockdale - Sun, 08 Oct 2017 13:33:54 EST ID:Y6izbsvG No.45930 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hopefully I'm going to be going on SSI/SSDI by the end of the year,

So with SSI you're only supposed to have $2000 in assets or your benefits stop. Now the SSA can only monitor what you have in the bank, so if you never mention it is there anything stopping you from saving cash in a safe at home that the SSA doesn't know about? It seems logical that you could do this and I've checked a few other sources online that have mentioned doing this, but I'm curious what /law/'s opinion and experience is.

On a side note I think it is really idiotic that you can't save money on SSI. So... apparently the SSA deems that if you can save beyond a certain amount, you don't deserve disability because you're doing well enough?

From what I understand, only representative payees (people appointed by the SSA to manage the money of SSI/SSDI recipients who can not do so themselves) actually need to keep records and reciepts so I think I'm safe with just sticking cash in an Amazon account or under a mattress or in a home safe.

The SSA actually says you can not legally have more than 2000 dollars or things collected for their value that could be easily sold adding up to that amount, but it's not like they can just search your home for cash whenever they want or have an automatic awareness of all your cash transactions. Amazon credit couldn't actually be sold in any form and it would actually allow me to save for things like a new PC, my current one is getting pretty old.

Note the 2000 dollar limit is only if you're on SSI. With SSDI you can save as much as you want. I'm getting both. I am considering deliberately going off SSI once I get all my backpay. I'm aware that you are given a 9 month period after where backpay does not contribute to the limit after receiving it.

I've been wanting to immigrate to the U.S. for a few years now. I'm from the UK, I'm currently in my last year of my undergraduate in Software Engineering, going onto a masters in CompSci, high GPA and all that. The reason I'm mentioning all this is that when I was younger, I had more than my fair share of run-ins with the police and I'm wondering how much of the "changed character" bullshit they'll buy if I've generally been squeaky clean for the last 4 years or so (will be about 6 years when I intend to apply)

I have a conviction for possession of class As (MDMA) in 2014 and a vandalism conviction in 2011. I also have two theft charges but was proven not guilty on both counts and I think a caution for a small amount of weed in like 2009. But out of all that, two convictions. Obviously the one I'm really worried about is the class A.

You see a lot of shit about "Oh, be honest on the forms" and all that but generally speaking, if I was to try to immigrate to the US, is it easy for them to see my entire UK criminal history? Should I be honest on the forms? I'm wanting to go in with, hopefully, a job offer from somewhere in the US. Would be great to hear if anyone has went through the same thing and what's best to do.

That MDMA conviction is absolutely going to prevent you from getting residency.

I don't know what if any special considerations starting a dispensary comes with; however, you should be able to find a transactional attorney that knows all about it in any city you're interested in.

I recently moved to MN to find a job. Been a couple weeks.

Two days ago, I went to a concert and took some benzos.

I blacked out outside in the parking lot. When the police found my body, I had frost on me. They took me into the station and then took me to the hospital.

I had nothing on me, I was only intoxicated.

Will a police report be filed even though I cannot be charged?

Will potential employers have access to this information even though I was not charged?

I fucked up bad. I just need some advice. If I can't get a job in my field, I'm gonna have to shoot alot lower.

My brother got hit by a semi driving home from work yesterday, he was 100% sober, but the police smelled marijuana in his car so he got searched. They found a bag of weed so they took him in for some blood work, it will take a bit to come back.

He says the last time he smoked was a spliff about 12 hours ago. He got charged with an OWI and is waiting for the blood work to come back to show he wasnt stoned.

Will it show that? or is he fucked?

Bloodwork on pot comes back as active THC and two metabolites that can give some indication taken together of whether a person is stoned while they are driving.

Some states have a per se rule like alcohol. If you have above a certain ng/ml of active thc you're deemed high. It's not really that reliable, and it's a big grey area right now.

If he didn't smoke before 12 hours beforehand he's probably ok. He'll have to eat the pot charge and probably have a pretty nasty traffic ticket, but I doubt he'll get all the way to a OWI.

Hi guys, I need a bit of advice. A friend of mine visited LA this summer, he rented a car from the Alamo company. He received a letter not long ago (he lives in Slovakia) that the car was issued a parking ticket which they paid for him and now they want around $107 from him. I have done some Googling and this fucking company seem to operate this way a lot, they rent a car and when the person returns it, they will send them a bill do repair hail damages or some shit and are asking hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Friend is pretty sure he did not park in a way that would result in a ticket.

What would you recommend him to do? If he wrote them and demanded a copy of the parking ticket so that the car plate and date of the incident is visible, are they obliged to send it to him or something? Or should he simply ignore it? They have his credit card info and he probably does not want to get charged $500 in half a year due to some fees and interest adding up or some shit.

Since I don't know LA and I don't know the US, I'm not really sure if this would be a good idea, but I have found this page: http://ladot.lacity.org/contact-us
and I was thinking I would send them the invoice number, license plate and date (from the letter) and ask them if they have indeed issued that ticket and if Alamo had paid it? Just to know for sure that those pricks didn't make it all up.

Thank you for any help or insight.

Alamo is a subsidiary of a publicly traded company. Your friend was ticketed and it's unlikely that it was an error. According to the letter, Alamo should already have charged his credit card so his immediate option is to dispute the charge or pay it.
