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?

Maine Lemons Laws: Should Dealer Pay for Replacement Part?

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.

>Call a Chevrolet Dealer in another town to order the part
>I arrive, find out it's the wrong part altogether, the man at the Chevy dealership tells me I need a different part altogether: reject the first part and order the new one.
>Bought it earlier today, it cost me about $40.

So, on one hand, this is about whether or not its ethical for me to pay the forty dollars or for the small dealership to cover the cost. Again, I already get free labor, but I want to make sure these people aren't trying to screw me. The people I got the car from have a good reputation, and my dad, who helped me buy this car, seemed to like the people there well enough. It's been two weeks since I bought the car (been busy with holiday stuff) and I just want to make sure that I'm not being cheated by paying for the part myself.

Should I just let it go and consider myself lucky I won't be charged for labor, or do Maine Lemon Laws say otherwise? I tried to look it up, but I can't find my exact issue.

The car is really good, otherwise, and I'm happy I bought it.

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.

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.

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?
Priscilla Cunkinman - Sat, 18 Nov 2017 10:31:58 EST rhAoMCcn No.45964 Reply
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.

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?

>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..
It happens pretty consistantly. People get off just as easy. As well as a miscalibratedeted speed gun, could be altered, be off by say 15 MPH. If not calibraditadeted by simple guidelines. People could get off from tickets,
whether innocient, unwittingly or deceipt. This is where people challange tickets, this is where police officers actully show up in court, or miss court. In these instances where calibration is the main issue. That is where police 'do' generally show up in court.
Jarvis Hellypun - Wed, 01 Nov 2017 05:07:15 EST S1ZAIy5L No.45954 Reply
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.

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.

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.
