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.

I dunno about the law but hot tubs are an endless nightmare to keep working. Do what every other used hot tub owner does and literally sell it for 40 dollars and wash your hands of it. If you have it in your possession of course.

certified pool operator here

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.

So last week, to cap off what had been unto that point a pleasant and regular night, I blacked out and came too in jail with an Aggravated Trespassing and Public Intoxication charge. I have no memory of what happened and, due to potential embarrasment, I waived the reading of my affadavit in court. I meet with the public defender next Friday and return to court on the 25th.

Because I do not know what happened, I have no idea if my chstge is a class A or B misdemeanor. I am in Tennessee and have no prior criminal record. Can anyone here tell me what kind of potential penalties I'm looking at, as well as thr possibility of a diversion? Thanks all.

You don't need to know anything to be a better client. They went to law school, you didn't. They'll advise you of your options on the 15th.

Like you said, without the facts there's no way to tell you whether it's an A or B class misdemeanor, and there's no way to advise you of the chances of diversion, because that's a contract between you and the prosecutor and varies by jurisdiction.

In my jurisdiction it's not a diversion case though.

My buddy was driving to electric forest music festival back in June. He got pulled over. The police searched his car, they found an empty bag of coke and took it and said he'd get a ticket in the mail. They also took his girlfriends 5-htp assuming that it was molly "To get tested"

Now he gets a notice that he got a felony drug charge and was found with 25 grams of cocaine. This kid is totally fucked. He doesnt live in michigan where he was charged.

Whats gonna happen to him? He was honestly not found with any cocaine except the empty baggy, and no arrest was made. He does not live in the state of michigan where the supposed bust took place.

This age-old debate has been argued back and forth with no definitive answers. It seems courts have ruled both ways on this throughout the past.
It's written that we have a right to travel, but it's been argued that it does not specify we have the right to use a vehicle. The right to travel constitutes any other means besides a motor vehicle; walk, ride a horse, a bike, swim, canoe, whatever. However, I can't ride a horse on the highway, and many roads are far too dangerous to walk and do not provide walkways. Reasonable means of travel mandates the use of a motor vehicle in today's times, or you're breaking other laws like "obstructing traffic".

>U.S. SUPREME COURT AND OTHER HIGH COURT CITATIONS PROVING THAT NO LICENSE IS NECESSARY FOR NORMAL USE OF AN AUTOMOBILE ON COMMON WAYS

“The right of a citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, by horsedrawn carriage, wagon, or automobile, is not a mere privilege which may be permitted or prohibited at will, but a common right which he has under his right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Under this constitutional guaranty one may, therefore, under normal conditions, travel at his inclination along the public highways or in public places, and while conducting himself in an orderly and decent manner, neither interfering with nor disturbing another’s rights, he will be protected, not only in his person, but in his safe conduct.”

------------------------------------

Thompson v.Smith, 154 SE 579, 11 American Jurisprudence, Constitutional Law, section 329, page 1135 “The right of the Citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, in the ordinary course of life and business, is a common right which he has under the right to enjoy life and liberty, to acquire and possess property, and to pursue happiness and safety. It includes the right, in so doing, to use the ordinary and usual conveyances of the day, and under the existing modes of travel, includes the right to drive a horse drawn carriage or wagon thereon or to operate an automobile thereon, for the usual and ordinary purpose of life and business.” –

Thompson vs. Smith, supra.; Teche Lines vs. Danforth, Miss., 12 S.2d 784 “… the right of the citizen to drive on a public street with freedom from police interference… is a fundamental constitutional right” -White, 97 Cal.App.3d.141, 158 Cal.Rptr. 562, 566-67 (1979) “citizens have a right to drive upon the public streets of the District of Columbia or any other city absent a constitutionally sound reason for limiting their access.”

Caneisha Mills v. D.C. 2009 “The use of the automobile as a necessary adjunct to the earning of a livelihood in modern life requires us in the interest of realism to conclude that the RIGHT to use an automobile on the public highways partakes of the nature of a liberty within the meaning of the Constitutional guarantees. . .”

Adams v. City of Pocatello, 416 P.2d 46, 48; 91 Idaho 99 (1966). “A traveler has an equal right to employ an automobile as a means of transportation and to occupy the public highways with other vehicles in common use.”

Well I think you sort of answered your own question, pseudolaw is an offspring of magical thinking. The law as practiced is recondite enough and contains enough stereotyped ritual that it provides the foundation for a parallel body of cargo-cult praxis — pseudolawyers offer all kinds of seals, incantations, and rituals that are supposed to protect you from legal consequence.

A few weeks ago a co-worker of mine (I am a supervisor) got into a yelling match with me over me asking him to do something he didn't want to do. He did not directly threaten me verbally at this point, but he is twice my size and was attempting to intimidate me; including him coming up close to me and asking "You wanna say something to me?" In a threatening tone. I contacted our director, and the other supervisor, to alert them to this. The other supervisor comes in because they live close and I was very much under the impression I was not safe at work. The co-worker that threatened me returned; thinking I was out of the office, he began to brag about how he was about to come back in and attack me.
At this, I ask him to leave for the day and all hell breaks loose. He and the other supervisor start screaming at one another, as myself and other had to hold the two back from one another or there would have been a fight. Finally he leaves the office, and having heard what happened, our director comes in to speak with him. Our director leaves, the asshole who threatened me got to work the rest of the shift. I was promised that the situation would be resolved and I was more than happy to be patient. Weeks have passed and literally nothing has been done, even the bare minimum that the director promised.
Now when have HR coming in tomorrow with an eye to fire all three of us involved. I'm at my ropes end with this company, and I've been told by a few people that if I'm fired that I'd be in my right to sue them. Is there any truth to that?

Actually pulling the trigger on a suit is down the line, still. Right now, you should prepare a suit, and familiarize yourself with what that would entail, as well as the rights that are due to you.

Even if you don't feel right doing it, you need to put yourself onto the best position that you can. This guy from corporate, he doesn't k ow you at all, and won't have the slightest problem rolling over you. It's his job to do that, in fact. The only obstacle to that, will be the ones that you put up.

Hi /law/
I need some help dealing with a private investigator, specifically what they by law have access to and what they can do with the information
And alternatively what charges I can press if they release my personal information to someone who could potentially put me in danger.

Long story short; I'm basically being stalked by someone with a long history of mental illness (paranoid schizophrenia). I've complied with 2 police investigations, proved I'm alive, sane and choosing to not contact this person for my own safety. The police have agreed to keep my information hidden from the person because of their state of mind.

This person now has hired a private investigator to find out my personal information and relay it back to them.
Now as far as I know, PI's can do what they want as they don't necessarily have to follow the same laws the police do.

Is there something I can threaten the PI with to make them back off? Can I press charges against them for passing my information to someone who's a hazard to me and mentally ill? I've tried contacting legal services, the police, social workers, etc... But no one can really help me until this person actually causes me harm.
Has anyone else been in this situation or know about laws concerning private investigating?
Thanks!

Alright, I live in BC, and I work as a security guard, subcontracted out to a mall. Today, a clerk who directly works for the mall was really getting on my case about throwing loiters (RE:Natives) out.


Near the end of my shift a native man walks into the mall and wants to use the bathrooms. Only the supermarket is still open at this time, so I inform him there isn't a public bathroom right now. He understands and sits down at a chair. Not long after another man walks in and they start talking. This clerk is watching them like a fucking hawk and when the second man hands the first man some change, she immediately signals me to throw them out.

Turns out the second man is a fucking band counsel member and isn't happy. I tell him it's mall policy that loiters are thrown out. He says he's going to discuss this with the rest of the native counsels. The clerk then confronts him, and seems to have massively escalated the situation.


Question, am I completely fucked from a civil court standpoint? (Remember, This happened in British Columbia)

I just read an article that had me curious on how double jeopardy works in traffic accidents for deaths.

Lets say you get into a traffic accident and someone dies. If they issue you a citation, but don't charge you with manslaughter and you plead guilty to the citation, you can never be charged with the manslaughter if the manslaughter charge isn't issued before the resolution of the citation correct?

What happens if you get into an accident, get a citation and then a year down the line the person injured dies and the death is determined to have been caused by injuries originating in the accident? Can you then be charged with manslaughter or would it be a violation of double jeopardy?

That's a really good question. It would depend on what the original ticket was for and how the state codified their vehicular homicide laws.

But I can tell you this is a real life issue. Prosecutors understand potential DJ problems when they emerge. If there's an accident, prosecutors don't take pleas unless they know the other party is ok. If it's possible there is going to be a serious injury or death they won't resolve the case until they find out how it shakes out.

I was going to let this go, but no I'm a prosecutor and I'm very aware of how this all works.

I'm only rehashing because I actually had another case yesterday where someone came in to pay a traffic ticket only to have to be told by me that the reason he can't is because he actually killed the other driver. We won't let him ple to a lesser charge because it will preclude the coming vehicular homicide charge.

With regards to your points about criminal and civil, both the causing the accident and causing an accident that resulted in death are criminal and civil.

I'm 21 years old and physically disabled in my lower-ligaments enough where I use a walker as an aid. Without getting into the weeds of it, my family acts as my landlords. I receive SSI, Medicaid and pay rent, have a lease etc. My mother will routinely invite me to stay on their property which is an exotic duplex as a tenant -- later get tired of me and bully me into finding a new apartment nearby. Rinse lather repeat. My mother will use any favor or assistance, be it food, function as transit to thumb over me. In my current area, there aren't many resources at my disposal. My condition seems to be getting worse, as she becomes more belligerent and neglectful with time.

It's about that transition time again, and I want out of this loop. I haven't been dubbed incompetent legally and have touched base with shelters and transitional housing organizations.

I have a means to the Greyhound but if my family tries to bar my efforts how exposed am I? I'm worried about being in some way institutionalized at the hands of my family or during my travels. If my mom tries to make a legal case to be my guardian do I have to stay put? If she calls the police? What about once and if I set foot off the Greyhound technically homeless?

A buddy of mine recently arranged to get a half gram of coke off someone at his work. The co worker ended up having his mom drop it off to him and now he is paranoid that the woman was a confidential informant or undercover cop. The coke she gave him was real and was really good he said. My question is are confidential informants allowed to sell drugs or just buy them? And if it was an undercover would my friend have gotten arrested on the spot or would they contact him later? It's been a few days and he hasn't heard anything yet. Have any of you heard of anyone getting busted from buying a small amount of drugs off of a CI? Or do they usually just bust dealers?

Cops sell drugs all the time. Look up the story of the anti-narcotics unit in south Texas that got busted recently for not only selling drugs, but trafficking and providing security for huge shipments.

Of course, they were behaving criminally, so they weren't acting in the scope of their duties.

That said, I don't know why they'd bother busting somebody for a half gram. And they probably would have done it when the dope was dropped off.

Is the half gram gone? If so, "your friend" should just keep "his" mouth shut if the cops show up. If the coke is gone and metabolized they're not going to have much of a case, are they?

>This video clearly shows Ms. Fondleworth receiving a half gram of cocaine from our undercover officer.
>(your lawyer says) Not at all. Ms. Fondleworth had asked to borrow a small amount of sweetener for her coffee. It was just Splenda. And since it's gone, y'all niggaz can't prove shit.

Hello. Basically, my parents died, and my brother and I were supposed to inherit their stuff. Some family members tried to steal things, and then they all died too. But they messed up the process before dying (they also stole a bunch of shit, but it was years ago and doesn't matter now). We inherited some land, and they had tried to sell it. So the land was locked up and we had to get a lawyer to get it back for us. He is basically working for free, doing us a charity.

We were able to sell a house (it was pretty much destroyed, father was a hoarder, mother an alcoholic) and we sold a small thing of land. I got money from both of those transactions. Now we are trying to sell the last bit of land.

The lawyer needs tax records or something, and he is trying to get them from the people in another state where the land is. I haven't spoken to him in months. My brother was taking care of everything, but honestly, I don't trust him.

My question is, should I call the lawyer and ask him what's going on? To see if there is anything I can do, or if the land has been sold or something? Since he is pretty much working for free I don't want to make him mad, but I know that's a stupid fucking reason not to contact him.

Welp, having been the victim of about 3 family inheritances and having been around people with their parents dying. I can basically tell you this:

Forget it. You're brother has probably made off with the money. You got fucked and you'll spend more in lawyer fees fighting for the money than you will get back. Then you will burn all bridges with your brother and split up what remaining family you have in an Us vs. Them debacle. Also, the lawyer probably isn't working for free unless you know him and your brother probably paid him without your knowledge. Depending on who was executor of the estate and all. Unless you are looking at millions of dollars. It isn't worth dealing with because this is all far too long ago to fall favorably to you and as is usual in these cases, your brother did this:

>He was named executor of the final will and testament of whoever.
>Your brother took a ton of shit and sold it or kept it.
>Bought a lawyer with some of the money so he has legal council. (Lawyer can lie to you all he wants.)
>Made up some bullshit story.
>Essentially laundered the money of the estate while under the guise of, "Probating or summing the estate."
>The probate process "takes" years of paperwork and expenditures. Which means the estate's value is being drained from the net or sum and is funneled into your brother's pockets and to lawyer fees.
>Eventually, when all is nearly drained, the value gets sent to the court, blah blah blah, fees paid. Money is gone and you're fucked.
>Process typically takes about a year to burn up the probating process or summing of the estate etc.

Both my parents went through this chaos and my half-brother went through it with his father and his family. Basically, my father got about 10k dollars and a shitty car and some tools when the estate was at least 700k and he was to take 50%. Him and his brother don't speak and that is that. My mother got a shitty 400 dollar piano and now doesn't speak to any of her multiple siblings. Not to mention, siblings who hadn't been seen for years and spent most of their time behind bars, showed up with a TV lawyer and wanted to fist fight anyone who tried to take the "money or house." The whole estate totaling a meager 43k dollars. Which meant that after lawyer fees for every party involved, meant they all lost money paying for council. They just got some pictures out of the whole ordeal and maybe a few worthless and broken trinkets. Same ordeal with my half-brother. My friends dealt with the same bullshit. Even the only childs had people who weren't even closely related popped up out of nowhere and protested the will.

Inheritances split apart families and rarely does the money end up anywhere but in 1 or 2 people's pockets. Half the time, that money doesn't even end up in a blood relatives pockets.

Of the biggest dramafests I've endured, dealing with inheritances is the worst. Everyone thinks that it is all fine and we will split it fairly. Until they see dollar signs. Then their whole blood is thicker than water mantra evaporates and you get their true nature.

I am VJ'ing on community television in Vermont very soon, and wanted to know what the popular opinion, and legality of wearing a Guy Fawkes Mask on television was. I will be playing heavy metal videos and emceeing in between videos. My script only includes topics of sex and drugs.

Is there anything I should be aware of?

It's passé.

The police go to Tom Hardy's house and arrest him every time The Dark Knight Rises airs on TV.

Seriously, what on earth makes you think wearing a mask on TV might be illegal? That it's a Guy Fawkes mask specifically?

Some states have laws against wearing masks in public in certain circumstances. On TV is not in public. If you're concerned, talk to a lawyer.

DUI warrant without any evidence?

Recently I had to visit a fuckawful local hospital trying to get help detoxing from alcohol. I made it maybe a mile but couldn't quite get the rest of the way due to the symptoms so I had to call an ambulance.
One came soon enough but a cop came at the same time for whatever reason.
Both asked me questions such as when I last drank and I said like 12+ hours ago and if I was drunk then. I said something along the lines of 'if I were drunk I wouldn't be having this withdrawal.'
The cop wanted to search my bag and I let him because fuck knows why I was suffering hardcore. I had nothing illegal in there though I did have two unopened beers, one from a 6 pack which he surely saw. The only other sorts of drugs in the bag were OTC or prescriptions in my name, none narcotic. The car had absolutely nothing incriminating inside but it was not searched and even in that state I wouldn't allow that much.
I had also not recently used weed or received narcotics legally. (I may be an alcoholic but at least I know not to fuck with pills I'm not prescribed.)
I think the cop and EMT talked a minute but I'm not sure because I was delirious at that point. Anyway the cop fucked off and the EMT asked me if I wanted to go to the hospital. Don't know why he'd go full retard there because I've never been asked that after calling 911. Surely he didn't think I was just having another panic attack with all the shakes and sweats.
Anyway I went to the local hospital, worst in the state BTW and proceeded to be treated like a complete waste of bed space. I'm in there a lot for other health problems but this time they didn't even bother with blood tests or anything else and I didn't lay eyes on a doctor the whole time. HOWEVER knowing my tolerance and poor metabolism due to early liver disease I highly doubt I was below the legal limit even after all that time just due to how much I drank so quickly.
I know I'm being paranoid but I just need someone to tell me; can I be charged or convicted with DUI or a lesser charge even with no evidence against me? Even if just brought into court for it and found NG I think my family would lose their last shreds of respect for me.
If relevant, this happened in Kentucky. pic unrelated

OP, wouldn't an open container count as evidence against you?

OP here decided to drop back in to say I'm doing better now. Later that day I tried weaning myself off with the remaining beer but it only bought me a few hours before I gave up and had to tell my parents what was going on so I could get a ride to a more distant hospital that actually pretended to give a shit. (They had an actual detox ward, not that it's required to give me vitamins, fluids, and benzos.)
Getting strip searched and locked in a detox ward wasn't great but at least I was so stoned on ativan the time flew by and I barely remember it.
That week really sucked dick but at least my family was supportive, though I do resent the lack of trust they show me now even after notably improving with new medicines.
I still feel lucky as hell now though in retrospect I was beyond pissed I didn't get treatment then and there. I don't believe I was over the limit (or I would've called an ambulance from home) but I can't say with absolute certainty. Guess God was looking out for me in ways I couldn't understand then because I sure as shit had been praying throughout the experience.

There were none. I left the opened trash at home and ofc I'm not going to be opening one on the road. In my mind they were in my bag in case I got admitted but once again had to wait 8-10h (not exaggerating) to get any medicine like when I needed morphine and fluids for pancreatitis. Yes, it's stupid but going through w/d you know is potentially fatal makes you desperate.
Like I said, I don't keep anything incriminating in my car

I hesitated to bump this old thread but I do so in the hopes that maybe it will help someone else.
