I'm contacting you on behalf of my nephew. He is currently incarcerated in a county jail due to a probation violation. He was sentenced originally to 3 years probation - supervised by Community Corrections. He had 423 days of street credit at the time he violated. However, he wasn't given credit for the time. There is no information in the court transcript or sentencing information stating that he shouldn't have been given credit. At this point, he has been in jail for 15 months, was a trustee for 10 months, and also worked a job to reduce his time. He should have been released in March if given credit for the street time. We have consulted a lawyer who agrees that he should be released. The lawyer filed a motion in Circuit Court to appear before the same judge who sentenced my nephew. However, the lawyer is non-responsive and has told us that we're at the mercy of the judge. He can decide when to set a date to hear the case. Can you please advise whether we have a case and if the information that we have been told is correct?

My daughter passed away from a drug overdose. The police responded

My daughter passed away from a drug overdose. The police responded to the scene and recently I aquired the police report which in my opinion is not thorough, has many discrepicies, and out and out lies. The police did not do their job, and believe that someone was in her apt, found her dead, left the apt and did not report it. I live in the state of vermont, do I have the right to obtain or see the photos from the scene of her death, and the video tape that shows the last person that saw her, and that entered her apt.?

Hello, I am not sure if this falls under your specialty or

Hello, I am not sure if this falls under your specialty or not but it should at least be an interesting read. My partner reportedly worked for the government for Intelligence but supposedly 'unofficially'. One of those ' I could tell you what I did but I would have to kill you' kind of stories. In a display of some ongoing paranoia issues, he presented me with some old emails from my accounts which he claimed showed I was lying to him. (I wasn't but that isn't the issue). He said he 'had someone' hack into my email, cell phone and tracking my GPS on my car because once one of the governments 'assets' is associated with someone closely, they become a target for surveillance also (meaning me). He indicated it was the government doing the hacking and there was nothing he could do about it. Aside from the fact that it is totally unacceptable to be placed in that position without my choice, I want to try to verify if I am truly being tracked or he managed to figure out a password XXXXX is playing the Big Brother is watching game to see if I have anything else to hide. He won't go any further into what group he worked for or who he reports to other than to say he had intensive training like a 'real' CIA agent would. Any thoughts? Are there attorneys who would dig into it for me? any resources I have under FOI Act? thank you
