My wife and hosted a birthday party year old daughter and a

My wife and hosted a birthday party for 13 year old daughter and a few of her friends and adults. Some of the adults had a few beers in the garage and the kids were in the house with my wife and some adult family members serving food and having the Birthday cake. A few days later, a minor attending, upon questioning by her mom, said that we supplied alcohol to the minors there and my wife and I were charged (this was in IL) with contributing to delinquency of a minor for providing alcohol to minors. We did not! The minor said she was given Blue Moon alcohol, except we didn't have that even in the garage or house! How do we defend ourselves?

I'm in college and between jobs, so I hardly have any

I'm in college and between jobs, so I hardly have any money. I took out a payday loan a few months ago for $500, and didn't have the funds to pay back, so they have just recently charged it off to a collections agency. I'm going to have my father help me pay it in full within the next couple of days. I know you can't go to jail for credit card collections, but can you go to jail for not paying back a payday loan?

My roomate and i were in kentucky. we went to a store to buy

hi, my roomate and i were in kentucky. we went to a store to buy a couple stuff...my roomate went first inside and got his stuff while i was outside on the phone, and when he came back out of the store, i ended up my phone conversation and went inside to buy a couple things. i went inside got the things i wanted to buy, came back to the car, dropped the items, and i was going to walk back inside the store to use the bathroom. As soon as i reach the store doors, we were stop by police officers and the store lost and prevention people. The police officer said he was called by the store security people and they told him me and my roomate were acting suspiciously, buying things and coming in and out of the store. I told the police officer i had no idea what he was talking about, but he was insisting on saying we had fraudulent credit cards. After a couple of minute of talks, i handed to him my credit card and my debit card. He went to his car, talked on the phone and came back saying that this was not the credit cards he wanted, and that i had to give him the allegedly fraudulent credit cards that we used in the store. Because we had already thrown away the receipts, i told him i don't know which cards he was talking about. The police officer then insisted that i gave him everything that i had in my wallet (including business cards, and all...everything..)..i was a little bit resistant, but being scared i obeyed him and gave him everything inside my wallet. He also went to my roomate and also ask him to give him his wallet also. After more than an hour of wait outside, the police officer arrested us and charged us with 3 different felonies: 1) false making/embossing of credit cards..2) trafficking in financial information...and 3) criminal possession of forged instrument-2nd degree......Now i want to file a motion to suppress evidence based on illegal search and seizure based on the fourth amendment because i did not (nor my roomate) consent to a search and no warrant was provided to search our personal belongings (wallets). I believe we had a right to a certain privacy protected by the law , and no probable cause was involved. ...just wanted to have an expert opinion first. thanks.

Our case is so convaluded. It consists of attempted murder,

Our case is so convaluded. It consists of attempted murder, corrupt sheriff, abduction and so forth. April 6,2013. My daughter was shot. The only two people at the crime scene was her husband, who is a doctor and my daughter. He called 911 and said it was a attempted suicide. Upon EMT arrival, he was giving her CPR. Instead of letting the EMT relieve him in the resuscitation, he was allowed to leave via ambulance. She was taken to a hospital, where he was allowed to intubate and sedate her. He did not have hospital rights at this hospital. The med fighted her to a trauma center. When I arrived, her prognosis was dim. But by the grace of God, she lived. She is now a quadrapalegic dependent on a vent, however she is sound of mind and can leak speak. She is one in a million. Upon wakening from a coma, she declared she did not shoot herself. Her husband, in the meantime, had been caught trying to pinch off her central lines and was banned from the hospital. They did not report it to the authorities but kept it in house. We went to the sheriffs dept. we were told they had no reason to charge him. They gave us answers that the husbands account matched with his story. They did not bag his hand for gun residue, they did not retain him at the scene and they closed the case because she blinked her eye, when she was asked,if she did this to herself. She had just basically died and was revived, when this occurred. At the time, the husband was being prosecuted by the state in another county for three felonies related to domestic violence with a gun involved. His first hearing was April 1,2013. They bagged her hand for residue, after she had been admitted to the Trauma hospital, several days later. They detectives, came back and interviewed her, at the hospital, but she was still heavily sedated and intimidated, she tried to tell them, she did not shoot herself but they badgered her about details, she kept saying, I don't remember. Then suddenly her file disappears for three years. Her twin daughters, age six, at the time of this incident, are victims also. for the first 40 days of hospitalization, it may be less, she wanted to see her children. The only way she could see them was to agree to have the bond that was implemented against him revoked. His whole demeanor had changed. He played the part of the perfect husband promising to take care of her and if she ever got to come home, she would still keep the children. But remember, he still had charges pending in the county they lived in. She did come home,but her prognosis was she would not live more than six months. The children, lived with at her home, with me as her caretaker for two months. He then gave the children co guardianship to his parents. My husband and I had already retained a lawyer to protect her rights and ours as grandparents since we lived in another state. I have records of all the correspondence with this lawyer. Her file has suddenly reappeared two or three months ago with the help of a domestic violence advocate. She has viewed the file, but is unable to say what she saw as it could bias the a trial. But she was reassured, the case was open and the investigating detective basically admitted they handled her case wrong but would come back to interview her. That he would talk to his chief investigator to help him ask the right questions. The advocate has worn out her welcome at the sheriffs dept. because they still have not come to interview her. They will not return her calls or our calls. In August of 2015, the husband abducts the children and takes them to a town five hours away. We did not see them for months and he finally let them see us. March 28th,2016. The girls were allowed to come for spring break. We had not seen them for a month and a half. Upon there arrival they were unusually distant. But as the days wore on they began to speak of abuse and neglect. The mother excercised her rights and kept them here only after they begged not to be taken back. The grandmother secretly videoed them while they spoke. They were put back in school. A restraint order had been instated, the school had a copy and knew there was a open case and they knew that only four people could pick them up. He went to the school and they let him have them even though they were afraid of him. They asked him if he was taking them to see mommy. He replied yes. We have not seen them since. Also, our attorney filed for divorce for bed/board. He has, however, shows discriminatory indiscretions toward the mother. We just recently found out, the co guardianship was only good for 90 days. Her attorney terminated it in January 2016. Never once telling us. And now says her husband excercised custody due to her disability. Also she has been accused of Medicaid fraud and SSI fraud. An offer was made that she could see the children eight hours twice a month under strict the husbands supervision plus another person, paid by the husband to be present also. To much to continue.

I signed up to facebook using a nickname I have used since

I signed up to facebook using a nickname I have used since 1956 (Was born in 1941). I looking into changing my "born name" Mary L** to my nickname T*** while living in NYC, and found $7,000 to much to spend. Facebook looked for no verification of the name. I signed up in a game available on facebook (Royal Story) using a credit card in my legal name ***** *****. Somehow -- and I have no proof how -- I was hacked. I removed the card, and had it deactivated from credit card company.JA: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?Customer: I currently live in Texas, state in which I was born. Point is Facebook let me sign up with no verification that Terri L**** was a legal name. After I was hacked, they have blocked me from using the facebook credits I have on record until I provide proof that Terri Leinneweber is a legal name. Which it is not. It is a nick name. I have driver's license in Mary L L***, and lots of documentation for banks and stuff. I also have genealogy records in M****.Com showing that I have used Terri as a nickname.JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I will probably simply let facebook disable my accounts, and stop using it.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Criminal Lawyer should know?Customer: Not a criminal lawyer. I didn't do anything illegal. I was actually wondering about Facebook's legality to do this.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Criminal Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

If you have a credit card court judgement years and it

If you have a credit card court judgement for 7 years and it automatically drops off your credit report should you assume it will not reappear again? Or does the law firm have a certain length of time to reapply for another 7 years?
