I called the cops because my crazy ass ex girlfriend broke into my house while I was gone and stole my cash and my medication. Cops came to my door, I tell them situation, they don't do shit about it but follow me inside anyway when they didn't ask if they could come inside and I didn't invite them. Then one of them says he thinks it smells like weed in there, and that they have cause to search my house. Wtf?? Of course he finds my weed and pipes, and I get charged with possession of marijuana & paraphernalia.

What the fuck man, I called the cops because I'm a victim of a fucking crime, and they decide they can make up a probable cause and do a random ass search for whatever they want in my house? Fucking bullshit this has to be illegal. Please tell me I can get a lawyer for this shit.

What if you tell them they're not allowed here when they're here for a house visit? They say shit like that and they don't leave when there's no reason for them to be here and they ADMIT they aren't there for a reason.

Not really sure where to put this so if this isn't the right place I apologize.

So I visited a friend recently that I hadn't seen in about a year. We catch up over the weekend over at his place and I saw that he had a macbook pro, which is new as he's never had one before. So I ask him when he got it and he tells me that he stole it from an administrator's closet at the local public college (not community) when he was exploring one of their departments and noticed that one of the administrator's closets wasn't locked.

Now this irks me because I know that generally art departments are one of the most underfunded departments at schools so he potentially fucked over some teacher's shit. His argument was that a.) it was probably quickly replaced because it's a liberal arts school so there's probably more priority for their arts than at other colleges, and b.) it's likely that liability was probably in the hands of the school's administration since it was an administrator's closet so they would've probably had to replace it quickly since that closet was the administration's jurisdiction, therefore no loss of funding and things carry along probably just fine.

How sound is this logic? Something just doesn't feel right to me about it but since I'm personally not a fan of tuition and debt and generally just the way educational institutions function I'm not necessarily against the idea of stealing from for-profit colleges, but I'm also not down for fucking over underfunded art departments. Anybody work at a college that could give insight into the ethics of this sort of situation?

Well I think I fucked myself. I did not think these would show up on a drug test, and I also didn't think the job would go for a 10 panel test, since it's for a shitty warehouse that hires felons and basically people who are hobos.

I went to the hospital or clinic, got tested, and tested positive for Benzos. I DID tell the hiring lady that I had a rX for Benzos from my Dr. (I used to, but not anymore, and I doubt the Dr, would mention that).

I've heard that you can "request it be sent to the lab" for further analysis, and it usually comes back as a false positive. However, would I have had to do that at the clinic? Is it too late? If the hiring lady calls back, can I say I want it to be reevaluated at "the lab", claiming I'm taking Phenibut and GABA to quell my anxiety?

What do? Or did I just fuck myself?

if it's within a year of the script, 'use before date,' do try to leave it at that. If script states for anxiety, sleep, better chance than digging in further with a lab test in my opinion which could show illegally obtaining a benzo. Surely Clonazolam is scheduled by now?

Where does the money from a refund originate on a credit card billing dispute

Hey guys. I have a question about where the money from a refund originates - On the winning side of a billing dispute on a charge listed on my account with my credit card company.

I disputed a charge on my account, through my credit card company. They told me I won, and they sided with me. They refunded the amount back onto my account.

My question is, did the credit card company really take back the money from the merchant? Do they have that kind of power to simply reverse a charge whenever they want to? So that the merchant loses the money?

Or does the credit card company simply give me a refund out of their own pocket as a courtesy for being a customer?

I have always wondered this.

Nowhere, there is no money. Just numbers on paper/screens. They either increase the numbers on your bank statement or decrease the numbers on your bill. They do eventually force the merchants to "pay" them, which is why ghetto liquor stores only take debit for alcohol, but this is just in the form of taking the sum out of the next bank transfer to them. If the dispute refund is instant(ish), then it does initially come out of the credit card company's account, else they squeeze the merchant for it first which is increasingly common due to abuse.

yes the merchant lost those moneys

card companies like american express will ALWAYS side with the card holder

I work at a hotel and we never require signatures at all when guests check in, because of this anyone can charge back on their credit card and claim they didn't stay here.

if you sign something at a retail store and charge back you might have a lawsuit incoming from the place you charged back from if your signature is there

Should not be. But if any drugs can be found with it, it's as good as gone in some places. The US at a time and today as well, can simply confiscate amounts of cash and deem it drug cash. If parahelenia or drugs are found alongside. Not good.

2500 is somewhat unique, drugs or not pigs have taken peoples moey, jailed them as well. At times a mere few bills found with drugs or paraphenelia the moey is forfeiteted to the county/state by default.

you explained this kinda shitily so ill do a better job or try too

asset forfiture is the process by which police may sieze assets they believe to be in connection to illegal activity. this can include large sums of money and or objects they say facilitate illegal activity.

for being an unemployed and having 2 grand in small bills screams these funds were obtained illegally, on the other hand being a stripper walking around with a bag of coke and 2k in your pocket doesnt. its all about the circumstances surrounding the situation

you should look into asset forfeiture. its a rather murky topic that has alot of strange stories with it. you'll hear stories used car dealers sending their employees with 20k in cash to the auction, getting stopped and having the assests siezed even with out drugs present. http://dailycaller.com/2015/01/30/the-7-most-egregious-examples-of-civil-asset-forfeiture/

Hey /law/ this is a general question rather than a plea for legal advice but this still seemed like the best board. Everyone talks about the President of the US as regards to drug policy, but theoretically if a super pro-pot person got elected then what could they even do? I seem to remember reading that the president gets a direct say in what the Scheduling of specific drugs is but I'm curious if that's the full extent of their power (or even if that's accurate at all) aside from suggesting legislation to congress?

Because it was federal Bill could pardon him, he couldn't (and didn't) pardon his cocaine possession or DUI convictions.

I live in Ohio.
I've noticed the paper used for releasing people like me from probation has a very similar appearance to those the police use to apply for warrants. If I were to put a probation release form in the judge's office mailbox where warrants go, rather than the box for probation forms, what laws would I be breaking? Would playing dumb about where forms go be a good enough excuse? I know every warrant gets signed without ever being read. Whether it would work just seems a matter of the paper ending up back in the probation office.

So my mom just died /law/. Got the call last night.

It's 12:24 am here. Happy mother's day! I looked at her face and it was all bruised with a hint of vomit across one cheek. They stripped off all her clothes to get her on the stretcher... I was in the next town over when this happened so the neighbors had to call me. It must have been three days she was lying there on floor next to her bed. The signs seem to point to kidney failure. But this isn't a /qq/:

She did in fact leave a will. I intend to honor every word of it. The problem is that she didn't sign the thing yet!! A witness did sign it however and even more people saw her with it talking about it to them, myself included. Is it legally binding in any form? The estate in questions is like <$3000 (...subsidized housing).

I don't want the government or anyone to try to pull anything that would cause more pain to my sister and I and violate mom's vision of life after her passing. Maybe I'm just getting up in arms over nothing idk. Input?

It's really weird that a witness signed it but she didn't.

Definitely not binding, but it can have some weight in the event of a dispute.

>I don't want the government or anyone to try to pull anything that would cause more pain to my sister and I and violate mom's vision of life after her passing.
What's going to happen is the estate will go to a probate court. The will is supposed to be the decedent's testimony to that court. The particulars vary by state, but if you and your sister are her only immediate family then you each get half of what's left over after debts, taxes, and fees. Your options for affecting the distribution of the estate are testifying in court or coming to an agreement with the other heirs and submitting that to the court.

Wondering if I can beat this shit... Before I explain please let it be known I live in a small town with about 12k population... If your wondering why my county is petty.

Okay, so around 10pm or so, I went into the bathroom, my parents suspecting me of using in the bathroom. They called the cops on me while I was in the shower. I had a syringe and a spoon in the bathroom with me. I took the spoon in the shower with me (it was weird I had a gut feeling the cops were being called on me.) And I washed off the spoon while taking a shower. I got dressed, walked out of the bathroom, and 4-6 cops were waiting in the living room waiting for me. They told me to come there and I kept arguing with them, "Am I being arrested?" "What am I being detained for" "Why am I being held here I didnt commit a crime." blablabla...

Their answer was "You are being held for the sheriff."

I said "For what reason am I being held for the sheriff If I didnt commit any crimes."

They wouldn't answer. They just stayed silent...

I was sitting there at the table with the cops hands on my arms so I wouldn't move... For basically no reason other than my parents called and suspected me of using in the bathroom.

The sheriff got there (A narcotics agent in my small ass fucking town). And said they were going to search my room, which I argued I didnt give permission, they said my stepdad gave permission. So they did that and found nothing, Then she wanted to search my person, and I CLEARLY MADE IT A HUGE FUCKING BIG DEAL, that she cannot search my person and I wasnt giving her permission. She kept saying she was going to search for illegal weapons so the cops are safe. She patted me down and reached in my pockets and pulled out a clean spoon and syringe. Took me outside to the cop car, field tested the spoon with no witnesses and came back to me in the back of the cop car saying I was going to jail tonight for posession of heroin. So here I am today out on bond, just got served with a Felony 5th degree posession of heroin indictment. Its my 3rd posession charge the fuck do I do can I beat this shit with this search shit?

I'm an attorney, and I'll start by giving you the only advice: get an attorney. I'm guessing you're from the US, so your state should have a public defender's office. Sign up with them if you cannot hire an attorney. Despite what you've heard, they can be amazing attorneys. I am a public defender and the attorneys in my office are the best in the state.

There are potential 4th Amendment issues in your case concerning the search of your room and your person. An attorney can sit down with you, look at the discovery you receive (all the police reports) and determine whether you have a good argument for suppression. In the meantime, this is some good general advice:
1) Do not talk to police or prosecutors. If they reach out to you, say nothing other than "I'd like to speak to an attorney."
2) Get into a drug treatment program. Go to the local health department, get evaluated, and follow their instructions. Whether or not you think you need treatment, the Judge you're in front of is probably going to presume that you're an addict due to your charges and priors. If you can show the prosecutor and Judge that you're seeking help, that's one less reason to lock you up.
3) Are you working? No? Then get a fucking job. Again, full-time work is ANOTHER reason to not lock you up. Can't find a job? Do volunteer work with a not-for-profit organization in your community. Treat it like a job.
4) Get a haircut, shave, and wear a suit to court. Appearance matters. It shouldn't but it does. Deal with it.
5) Bring with you a folder with all the documentation of the above-mentioned. Proof that you're working, in treatment, doing community service, etc. Letters from drug counselors confirming that you're in treatment (when you started, how often you go, when you get urine tested, and so on). Stuff with letterheads, signatures, and phone numbers in case the prosecutor or Judge wants to verify.
6) If possible, bring people who can speak on your behalf. Yes, your parents who narc'd you out may help. If you clean yourself up and impress them enough, they may be able to give a whole "my son has totally changed" song and dance routine. Otherwise, if people cannot make it to Court, have them write letters of references. Keep those handy, in your folder. All of these materials are for your attorney to use as ammunition to convince the prosecutor to drop the case or work a deal out to your benefit. Even if you cannot work the case and end up taking a shitty plea or going to trial and losing, you can use aaaaaall of that information for mitigation during sentencing to convince the Judge that locking you up would serve no purpose.
7) Look into vivitrol injections. Google it and read about it; call your doctor or the health department and see if that's available in your area/with your insurance. It's pretty new and exciting stuff (the medication is old; the injections are new).

Good luck! AND GET A FUCKING LAWYER!

So I was pulled over and cited for having a headlight out.
The cop smelled pot so i gave him the weed and pipe.
Spent the night in jail. Now I have court and I believe I might want to fight it. The cop said my headlight was out but the next day I turned it on and it was broken, and smoking but still lit. I feel like it should be considered an unlawful stop and would be thrown out but I dont want to have to deal with major shit for trying to fight it rather than just pleading guilty. I've had a few misdemeanor pot charges that were dropped down in ny and this is my first charge in south dakota.

So about an hour ago I got stopped for speeding. The police searched my car and found 2 Vyvanse pillls, 2 Klonopin, a small quantity of weed (under .5 grams) and a bottle of anti-depressants that aren't prescribed to me. Does anyone know how fucked I'm gonna get? I was "arrested" but they didn't take me to jail. The cop said there would be some paperwork coming, and I'd have to appear in court. Does anyone know what kind of charges I'm going to face? I live in Pennsylvania.

A summary offense tends to mean whatever you did was not considered a big deal. It can be dealt with 'summarily' (quickly) by a judge without going to trial or using other lengthy, expensive procedures.

Criminal (aka Indictable) offenses tend to be big deals. Big fines and pound-me-in-the-ass prison,

>Summary conviction offences encompass the most minor offences in the Criminal Code. Examples are "cause disturbance" and "harassing telephone calls."
Another example is 'use of a stolen credit card.' Don't ask me how I know.
>Unless a different penalty is specified, summary conviction offences are punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 or six months' jail or both.
>You cannot be fingerprinted for a summary conviction offence.

That info is for Canadia.

Penn summary offence info: https://clsphila.org/learn-about-issues/dealing-summary-offenses

It's not easy to find 411 on Penn fingerprinting. This page says they will do it for 'retail theft'. So there's an example of a summary offense requiring fingerprinting. Talk to your lawyer to see if you have to do it. That order may have been triggered by your arrest and you might not have to go, but find out for sure.

>(g) Fingerprinting.--Prior to the commencement of trial or entry of plea of a defendant 16 years of age or older accused of the summary offense of retail theft, the issuing authority shall order the defendant to submit within five days of such order for fingerprinting by the municipal police of the jurisdiction in which the offense allegedly was committed or the State Police. Fingerprints so obtained shall be forwarded immediately to the Pennsylvania State Police for determination as to whether or not the defendant previously has been convicted of the offense of retail theft.
