In 2012 I had a business bankruptcy that left me severely
In 2012 I had a business bankruptcy that left me severely depressed. One evening I was driving from Maine to MA where I was relocating. My mental state caused distraction and I ran out of gas. I was transporting some of my belongings, one of them a pocket knife while of legal size in ME, it was considered illegal in MA. My car was impounded and I was not charged, instead given a ticket. Shortly afterwards I was hospitalized for depression and later homeless; needless to say I forgot about the ticket. I managed to rebuild my life, I am a Doctor of Optometry, and the issue with the ticket resurfaced this past Dec. when I went to renew my MA Drivers license. I had a bench warrant for my arrest. I promptly went to the district court where they issued a 650 fine to be paid within 6 months. I paid $100 early Jan. then in Feb. I had a serious bicycle accident that required shoulder reconstruction surgery. Following the surgery I had several complications which brought be back to the ER. I am now healed enough to start rebuilding again. However the injury caused me to loose my job (independent contractor) and I have been placed on medicaid. My doctor is helping me with the MA dept of transitional assistance, and the housing authority since I am about to be evicted. I am not cleared to work and have 6 weeks of intensive PT to regain use of my right arm. I have no way to pay the rest of the court fee so I am filing for indigent status. Upon researching this process I find that the court proceeding was reported in the local news blotter and the report sensationalized the pocketknife. My license to practice will likely be revoked as it was on probationary status due to complications with my business bankruptcy and my reputation online soiled due to these events 4.5 years ago. The court appointed attorney said that if I pleaded no contest that I would just pay the fine and it would "go away forever" but the news report has taken away the protection I was told that I had. Do I have any recourse? I want to be able to practice my trade again, I just was graduated in 2010 and have 300,000 in student loan debt. Is there anything I can do?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: MA, 2013, the warrant was removed with the condition that I pay the fine by JuneJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: yesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I want to know the best way to regain good standing and repair my online reputation
We need some advice concerning a DUI conviction my son has
HelloWe need some advice concerning a DUI conviction my son has in North Carolina while finishing a Bachelor's degree at UNCA (he now is a Georgia resident in Graduate school at UGA). Keeping this story to minimum (the long story is a sad catalogue of incompetent and vindictive application of the law from the Asheville police/courts against a local college student).He was charged with DUI while riding his bicycle in Asheville, NC (first and only offence of any kind). The court has suspended his NC license for one year.The NC court took over one year to adjudicate his case and in that time, he was accepted to the graduate program at UGA and moved to Athens last summer. At that time surrendered his NC license and acquired a Georgia drivers license.The official NC suspension began December '16.He has not been notified by Georgia of any reciprocal suspension but has not been driving since the NC verdict fearing that he may be violating Georgia law. He was using an old car for college in NC that I owned, which I sold late last year.He just received a letter from the NC court saying that he needs to have a “blow-and-go” breathalyzer installed in (his?) car. Additionally, he was notified that when (or if) the NC court notifies Georgia of the suspension, that a parallel suspension will commence for his Georgia license. HOWEVER, that the associated Georgia suspension will not run concurrent to the NC suspension but rather begins when Georgia is notified. Thus, increasing the length of suspension.Question: How do we best manage the intra jurisdictional issues here and comply with both states mandates. My son certainly wants no more trouble and wants to put this behind him while moving forward with his life.Thank you for your help,JA: License regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The incident was in North Carolina but he is now a Georgia residentJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Please read the attached explanation above to explainJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I just came home from one of the most embarrassing moments
I just came home from one of the most embarrassing moments of my life. I went to WalMart to buy a couple of bicycles for my kids. The guy who unlocked the bicycles for me, told me I had to pay at the electronics checkout line, which is inside WalMart. I believe that at the point when I paid for my bicycles, they became my property. However, the WalMart greeters would not let me leave unless I showed them my receipt and forcibly prevented me from leaving the store until I did. Do I have a case?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: California.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Nothing

I got a subpoena today to appear in court as a witness to
Hello,I got a subpoena today to appear in court as a witness to the court appearance of the other party to an accident that happened a month ago that involved my car and a bicycle. (Boulder Colorado)I was going straight on a through street at about 20 miles an hour and I did not have a stop sign but the street intersect on the right with another street that has a stop sign. Midway through the intersection, I hit a bicyclist who hit the front of my car and my windshield. At first I thought it was my fault because I did not see the bicycle coming. However, the traffic cops who investigated the accident made the determination that the cyclist was at fault since she had a stop sign and should have yielded to passing traffic.The police investigators also wrote on the report that the bicyclist claimed my turn signal was on. I am pretty sure that this was not the case as I was going straight and have no recollection of switching it on. (The only way it could have been on was if it had stayed on from the last intersection where I also turned right. However, that is also quite unlikely, as that intersection was 500 meters away and my blinkers have an automatic switch off.Thankfully, the cyclist was not seriously hurt. I stayed with her, called an ambulance for her and stayed with her until the ambulance and police arrived. She has pleaded not guilty however and I have been summoned to testify at her hearing.My questions are the following? How will the court proceedings go? How can the judge decide fault since both our stories are credible? If they believe her, what happens?ALso, I am wondering: from the standpoint of traffic law, would not the bicyclist still be at fault if she failed to stop fully at the stop sign and ventured into traffic before she saw where the car was going? Is it not incumbent for the person at the stop sign to yield long enough to avoid collision? I have not been able to find an answer to this last question on any legal site and would be grateful if you could help me with this.
