The last 2 months have been rough, I got caught in a club with drugs and got the whole doorman/police/cell shakedown. After no comment during interview I eventually ended up and court today.
The dumb idiots tested a crushed up pill as coke and the actual pills somehow didnt make the trial. So one false count of a class A possession instead of 2, even though it was the wrong drug.
My solicitor was smart and instead of letting me explain the bullshit confusion, which would had lead to more bullshit and another court date for ultimately the same charge, made my case simple. I had nothing to say throughout the whole thing except guilty and got a fine.
The police are incompetent as fuck and have no idea what drugs are. Glad this crap is over but really fuck them and this whole drug war. However Im glad it happened in some ways cause I dont wanna do drugs anymore and remembering this whole fiasco will keep me in check.

I shouldnt have pleaded guilty perhaps, but then a retest would have found that it was MDMA which is still class A..then they might have wanted me to explain why I had three bags of MDMA (powder and pills), then it gets complicated, they just want a simple story.. it wud all points towards ITS which in all honesty, is what it was...I cudnt have it hanging over my head any longer so the story was I went to a club, got drunk, bought coke and went to the toilet to do some. It was very stupid and I wont do it again, the end. Pigs still have my phone, lying scumbags

Dear lord, all this bitching over a fine?
My clients get heavy duty probation for the same type of plea and possibly prison time if they have priors. And even with probation, they're backing up years over their heads and have judges crazy enough to give them the full back-up if they fuck up probation in even the slightest.

So quit your "war on drugs" shit. The UK is paradise.

Also, your solicitor may have fucked up. What were you actually charged with, possessing the pills or cocaine? I would've gotten you acquitted.

Is there anything this friend can do to be compensated by the pan company? They got teflon flu by cooking on low heat with this pan and its been more than a month and they're still shaky when they move their body in certain ways.
Does a person with low income have any chance? Its also a Korean company

Reasonable doubt, not even close to par with daytime fake courtroom drama.
All the comments,duuumb.

Really DuPont has settled many times for it's damages caused by it's products and practices. This item I believe claims 5 Teflon coatings, could be a flaw in the manufacturing process, as well documentation of this.

Not sure how long it stays in ones system but if one saw a doctor and saw above accepted levels of the chemical(s) and could correlate the physical conditions
to the exposure(s) then a case may be fairly straightforward. Time resource consuming but as it is now teflon as nice of a product it is intended to be,
has issues.

It might not have been caused by the teflon itself, but some kind of binding agent, or a paint, or a spray or something.
Eliza Decklefock - Fri, 05 Feb 2016 13:10:55 EST Nhoj62He No.45105 Reply
you'll need to hire a doctor to examine the patent and makes the diagnosis that a PARTICULAR spray or chemical caused the issue or likely caused the issue. There are doctors out there that specialize in this sort of thing. However, if you're low income you probably won't be able to afford it.

So, I know that there are various laws against administering drugs to people against their will. These laws usually are referring to roofies and GHB and the like, and some even specifically say that the substance has to be "poisonous, noxious, or toxic" i.e.; adding extra sugar/water/kool-aid mix to someone's drink isn't illegal (unless the person was diabetic or something i guess... but that's unrelated) and I imagine putting something like an OTC medication in a child's pudding to make them eat is when they won't is also not illegal. But what if you're trying to, say, give someone antibiotics (you know 100% for sure there are no allergy concerns) because you *might* have given them an STI (the clap) but you're not sure, they are not symptomatic, but you want to give them a prophylactic anyway, just to be certain. Now, I suppose this may fall under something like "prescription abuse", but antibiotics aren't scheduled substances, and you can even get them for something called Patient-Delivered-Partner Therapy, where you can get an extra dose of the drugs for your partner, without the doctor having to see them. Now, I know the idea of PDPT is to tell your partner what happened, and have them take the drugs, but... idk. I know that giving someone any sort of medication against their will is kinda a socially unacceptable thing to do, even with a hot highway's worth of good intentions, but is it actually illegal if it doesn't have any effect whatsoever, other than possibly curing the person?...

Okay, bear with my vagueness for this, at the moment it is delicate.
I think I just solved a murder. I am certain beyond a reasonable doubt. I say solved but not in the sense I know who has done it; I haven't even attempted that yet but am certain I could with cursory research.
The event was ruled a suicide. I can prove it was not. I have at least three people who could witness to what I know is true. They are all in federal custody for what will most likely be there entire life.
The event happened 2000+ miles away and more than a decade ago. I have no involvement other than i know what did and did not happen. What is my next move?

Will do. Would have never thought about those groups but no, I don't think the case would be compromised. As a matter of fact I'm sure somones's been on to what I know before and called out the people for it, they just lack a proper understanding of key elements and evidence that they don't understand the ramifications of what they are saying, especially leos when asked to retort. I would be thoroughly surprised if you have not heard of this case- it's probably one of the most famous. However, I don't want to cause a stir because A) if foul play is at hand the suspect would have more than enough time to maneuver defensively and B) the federal prisoners have no prior exposure to the situation and would be testifying, as experts, on drug manufacturing. I wouldn't want to tarnish their thought processes in any way.

I'm no lawyer, I've just been involved with and worked for the aforementioned, and all entailing life circumstances but my part in the play is long over now and rectified with the judicial system and society.

I'm pooring more research into it during spare time but objectively speaking I have found nothing that could point to the conclusion that was accepted by the state and the people.
I think it's about finding the right person to get the ball rolling I suppose, me being not the most valuable member of society, however knowledgeable on a subject. I'd really like to pin the Potential murderer but I'm sure he or she has been preparing for this for years or is already dead.

Single-Wheel Skateboard patent issues?

I really like the idea of the self-balancing single wheel skateboard.
Goes 15+MPH, durable, sturdy, and best of all simple.

I'm wanting to re-create it with my own looks/ideas, but the patent issues for this type of technology seem cutthroat. Some other company was shut down at CES for having a similar one but the concept is so simple.

I don't know much of anything about the laws for these types of things I'm just a creative/techsavy type. Could have one made within a few weeks but am I going to get shut down because I have a board that uses a microchip to scan various times per second as to how a rider is leaning in order to deliver thrust in one direction or another? Or is it more of a design issue? Can the original creator of the skateboard come out and sue other skateboard companies for making them later on, demanding money and claiming they caused "irreparable damage" by making their own renditions of the same thing?

In all honesty I wouldn't mind selling them once I get a really good one made. The apparent original company for these "Future Motion" is selling them for upwards of $1,500-$2,500 and realistically I think I could make the same thing (if not better) for around $700-$800

So I recently found out about a bunch of letters from the county courts regarding jury service. They were sent months ago.

The final letter makes it sound like they were pretty upset that I hadn't responded, and they seemed to be demanding my presence at the threat of a fine or jailtime.

Now, this was sent months ago and I'm currently attempting to contact the office and explain the situation and that I honestly hadn't seen these until it was far too late because I had been at a different address when they were sent.

I'm a white man with no criminal record and this is happening in NY state. What do you all think the odds are that they get really shitty with me and actually try to fine me or put me in jail for x number of days, even though I could prove that I was at a different address when they had been mailed?

Based on my research, a surefire way is to ask the judge about jury nullification.

The judge will give a talk to jurors explaining their obligation to find a verdict based on the law, even if they disagree with the law. Then you bring it up and ask about the fact that a jury can in fact find differently if they disagree with the relevant law, and how that jives with the notion that you as a juror have to find according to the law, regardless of your feelings on it.

The judge will probably be like "Hm, that's very interesting." and then let you go.

So I posted here awhile ago about how I punched a hole in my moms wall and the cops saw it because of something else and they arrested me and the cop told me my mom didn't have to press charges it was a necessary arrest and they found a bag of shake in my room and took it as weed. My mom and I made up and she sent a letter and called the da to have the charges dropped. I'm supposed to talk to an attorney but I had to cancel because my dad needed the car and I couldn't make it.

I have court tomorrow. I haven't heard from the da, and my lawyer said they'd call me back on my dads phone and they never did. Should I assume the charge was dropped and I just have the weed charge now? Do I still need to talk to my attorney?

what is this something else? why did you punch a hole in the wall. were these done at the same time or infront of the cop?

are you sure this wasnt a domestic disturbance? you said criminal mischief in the 4th thats a misdemeanor, that will give you a criminal record.
Im from NYS so i tend to go to their penal code when people dont offer any more info. the threshold is 250 dollars. you may be able to prove that you did less damage then that.

>they found a bag of shake in my room and took it as weed
what will the lab results say. if it has any trace amount of thc in it it will test as weed and the courts can prosecute you for weed. the way laws are written is there is no minimum, you are guilty of possession when you have any amount greater then 0.00. now if they choose to prosecute you on .1 of weed ill be kinda surprised.

>more info you can offer
what is your current situation. do you look like an upstanding citizen? do you have a record? are you going to school? how old are you? do you have a job?

Back in the day Totse had a guide about this, but its outdated.
Its alot harder now a days to get lost since thumb prints are in the DMV database and other technology.

I am currently going to college to become a pharmacist. I have mild scoliosis (38 degree curve in my spine), and have back pain constantly. I have an appointment at a medical marijuana clinic tomorrow to see a doctor and get my card, but I'm starting to get worried that receiving my card will make it impossible to get a job in the pharmacy field. I know that medical records are private, but the marijuana law could change in the next couple years in my home state of Michigan. Obviously if I fail an employment drug test that would be grounds for termination, but would a medical card show up on a background check and hurt my chances of getting hired?

All i can tell you is what michigan law is, not what happens there in practice as I don't live there. Under MCL 333.121 no one can disclose your participation in the medical marijuana program.

But I would be extremely wary as a pharmacist. First you're going to have to piss and there's no law to protect you from being fired after you pop hot. Also I don't know if to be a pharmacist there is a fitness application that requires you to disclose your participation (similar to what we do to be attorneys), but there is you would have to disclose it and that law likely wouldn't protect you here either.

I personally know two aspirant pharmacists who won't ever practice because of drug problems unfortunately, one for MJ and the other for opiates, so I understand it sucks.

Does /law/ have any actual lawyers or law students? I'm a history teacher who is considering a career change. And one option I'm weighing is going to law school. I'm not really sure what area I want to specialize in, though I know I don't want to do criminal law.

So is it worth it to go to law school? What's the best field to study not just for money but reliable employment? I'm just now starting to research it, since I'm far away from actually having to make a decision.
