My son is at basic training right now, straight out of high school. He, told fellow recruits that he had experimented with Marijuana a few weeks before he left. His urine screens were clean bit someone told his MSgt who reported him. They pulled him in for questioning and he told them the truth. He has been disqualified from basic and they are sending him home. They said he can reenlist in 6 months. I don't know that he will. What will his discharge be? Thank you.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: He is in Texas.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: He was doing exceptionally well prior. Never in trouble before, a top athlete, I honestly can say I don't think he had ever tried Marijuana before this. It was the night he graduated from high school and I think he was feeling anxious and living it up before he shipped.

My boyfriend moved out and was to pay 2 months of rent and I

My boyfriend moved out and was to pay 2 months of rent and I was to pay 2 to fullfill the rest of our 4 month lease. In June he wrote me a check for $800 (rent is $1400) and it bounced. I then gave put $600 in his account to cover the full amount and he wrote me another check for $1400. I paid the rent and it bounced so I then owed the rental company $1400, which I paid. We went down to the bank together and he transferred $1100 to my account but again not the full amount. The original $1400 check came back to and bank said I could re-deposit it. In July he said he couldnt pay the $1400 he owed me so I paid it all. Today I went to bank and cashed his $1400 check written out to me and paid his 2nd month rent, which is August. He is now threatening to have felony charged brought against me. If I cash a check written to me how is this illegal? Even if he can show the $1100 transfer is what I did illegal in anyway? We live in TN and I moving to NH in 2 weeks so do not want to be stuck here in any legal battle.

This happened 24 hours ago in MD, Montgomery County. I was

This happened 24 hours ago in MD, Montgomery County. I was going a one lane road behind a slow moving vehicle. Speed posted was 35 mph, going under 30 or so. Approaching an intersection the street widened by a median which transformed into a left turn lane. As both sides of the street were completely empty I made a pass using the left lane (started the pass on the median) but the stop turned red so I stopped back into my initial lane. The vehicle I passed stopped after me and the driver got out of the car and came to my window and asked me if I threw something at their car while passing or if I heard anything. I said no and he proceeded to go back to his car. At the same time light turned green so I left. He did not ask for insurance or anything else. I keep thinking what could happen now, what can he do if he actually has some minor damage from some gravel although I did not notice anything on the road. Thank you.
