I'm moving from Virginia into the District of Columbia. As I understand, here in Virginia, if you break into my house, I can legally use deadly force to defend myself. I can also own pretty much any gun I want without a license and openly carry said gun in most jurisdictions, with the exception of some higher capacity rifles.

now, in DC, I can't open-carry anything or own short-barrelled shotguns, semi-automatic guns, magazines with more than ten-round capacity, and everything needs to licensed with the MPD (50$, tack on another 150$ if it's a handgun) AND I need to complete a 3 hour training course to register anything. Another 18 hour course with a portion at the range with an mpd-licensed instructor to conceal-carry a handgun.

Which is fine, I'm not particularly fussed about jumping through hoops to keep a shotgun in my apartment. If I wanted to sell it or trade it or whatever, I can drive into Virginia and do whatever I want with it.

What I'm having trouble finding is information on defending yourself with the gun--specifically, if somebody breaks in (which happens in DC often enough), do I have the right to use deadly force to defend myself? If I'm on the street, it looks like I've got the 'duty to retreat' but its less clear what happens if I'm in my apartment and a crackhead with a knife or a gun from VA gets in. Anybody have any insight?

I think you're looking for either a castle doctrine or a duty to retreat. DC has neither. You can't claim self-defense if you start shit or to protect property, but if you have a reasonable belief that you are in imminent physical danger you can respond with whatever force is necessary. A jury will ultimately decide whether your actions are reasonable.

Hey /LAW/ I was hoping you can give me some insight about what are my options here. This is kind of a stressful situation for me and I really just need to vent a bit before I can figure out how to proceed. First and foremost I am dealing with a good friend who happens to be my house mate, and I really would like to find a way to resolve this without ruining our friendship.

We are in a unique living situation, where the house is actually owned by the company which employs us both, so we do not have to pay rent or internet, but we are responsible for paying the energy bills. The energy bills for the house we live in are all in my name (I lived in the house for a while before he moved in), and I so pay the bills in full, and he is supposed to pay me half. (Lol great situation, I'm fucked now right?)

Basically I believe that he is lying to me flat-out, as he is saying that he already paid his share (to me, in cash) when in fact he never did. I have several pieces of evidence as to why I know he is lying, but the problem is that I have been kind of unreliable insofar as telling him what he owes me in a timely manner. I never sent him a text message or email in the moment to confirm I just paid a bill, or anything like that. It has always been just like I'd knock on his door when he is around and say "hey, I just paid the bill, it was XX this month" and he's given me his share cash either right away or a day or two later, and it was no big deal.

But one time a few months ago, I brought it up to him that he owed me, and he claimed to have already paid, but I was skeptical and had no recollection of it, but didn't want to fight about it and it was a very inexpensive bill during the summer, so I let it slide. A few weeks prior to this happening, we had a long discussion about my cannabis usage and its apparent effects on my memory. So after we had that discussion, I changed my cannabis usage habits, and further made a deliberate point to make notes on my phone of specific details like how much the bills were for, and if he'd paid me yet.

So I paid another bill yesterday and just went to go inform him about it today, and also to remind him about the previous bills he owes (3 months now). He says that he paid me for the first 2 months a few weeks ago, which I do not have any recollection of, and there isn't a note of it on my phone, so I am initially suspicious.

He claims to have paid me while I was in the middle of packing for a road trip that I took at the end of the last month. I do not believe he paid me on this day because, aside from the obvious fact that I do not recall it or have any notes, I do have a record of the fact that I stopped at an ATM when I left for my trip, because I only had like 2 dollars in my wallet when I left, and figured I should have cash on the road. If he had paid me cash while I was packing for the trip, I would not have needed to stop at an ATM.

Furthermore, there is the fact that on the day he claims to have paid me, I had just paid another bill the day before (which I forgot to tell him about, because he was out of the house when I paid it). If he had really paid me as he claims to have, I obviously would have mentioned it to him that there was another bill at that time, but I did not, because this encounter never took place.

This is really only a matter of $250 or so, and I'm not trying to be Scrooge here. But I can't stand the fact that it seems plainly obvious that he is lying and thinks he can take advantage of me, and that just pisses me off. I don't want to take him to small claims court or any crap like that. If money is tight because he is spending a ton going out all the time with his girlfriend, it's not my problem, but honestly I don't even mind if he wants to hold off on paying for a few months and pay me when he can, it's not like I'm going to charge interest or any shit like that - it's just if he really is lying to me flat out, then there is really not much I can do with regards to trusting him. So yeah, this shit is raising my blood pressure.

Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

The legal situation is that it's your word against his. Good luck with that. The life skills situation is that you need to learn how to be a functioning adult. If your system of keeping track of money isn't working, get a new system. If your memory is a problem, buy a box of envelopes so he can label his cash contributions.

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.

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 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?

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.

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.

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.
