I have received a grand jury summons, am actually looking

I have received a grand jury summons, am actually looking forward to the opportunity. However, several years ago my sister, a county judge, was convicted for a violation of public trust, (or oath of office perhaps), and some sort of mishandling funds charge. She served 5 months. The prosecutor in her case is the same, it is a 3 county jurisdiction. Will that disqualify me from serving?JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: GeorgiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Filed or reported? She was convicted and served time. As for the summons to serve on jury duty? I am to report on March 6. That's all I know.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I. An think of.

Criminal lawyer, I won my arbitration award with the US

Criminal lawyer, I won my arbitration award with the US Postal service to be reinstated and be whole again with the service, reason I won was the way that mgmt worded the immediate suspension letter, it was supposed to be because of alleged criminal drug (marijuana ) activity, which wasnt proven yet, however the OIG has pictures of parephenlia i.e. small scale, plastic sandwich bag nd marijuana in truck, I'm a pawn in the big picture of their investigation who(I) wasnt involved or proven associated with the main target activities, because of the pictures nd me handin off packages(2 times, different people) to people who I thought were customers nd apparently weren't, can the postal service pursue further action, will the feds lean on me for more Info, I've been before grand jury was told they would call if they need me, also they (post office) has pics of me opening a package whic

My question is related specifically to Calif

My question is related specifically to Calif city/municipality contract law - in Solano County, City failure to enforce contract over several years with large home builder leads to services not performed to 500+ homeowners, costs to remedy likely in the $1M range. Possibly $1M + performance bonds returned to builder despite obvious deficiency. 5 page contract, very straight forward, no language to allow changes except time frame, no language to modify any portions of the builders responsibility from my review. Trying to get information regarding the city responsibilities and what laws/state ordinances they may have breached.

I served 24 months on a county investigative grand jury. As

I served 24 months on a county investigative grand jury. As is customary, grand jurors took an oath of secrecy. My question concerns those cases indicted by the grand jury on which I served which have already been prosecuted. 2 cases in particular. One case was tried in court, the defendant found guilty and is currently serving his prison sentence. The second ende in a plea to 3rd degree murder & that defendant is also serving her sentence. Since both cases have been closed/ended in conviction, would I, as a former grand juror in their cases, legally be permitted to write a book on either case? If so, would I be able to utilize knowledge obtained during Grand Jury testimony from various witnesses in my book? Would I need permission from the convicted felons, the presiding GJ judge or the DA to allow me to write about GJ information? Please advise. Thanks so much for your help and advice.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: PA - Both were cold case murders in Northampton county.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Both cases had media coverage. Trial, conviction, plea deal & sentencing.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just have incredible stories to tell, but do not want to violate any grand jury secrecy laws. Only because the cases are settled and have had media coverage, want to remain within my legal oath responsibilities.

I am a teacher that was accused of sexually abusing a

Hi! I am a teacher that was accused of sexually abusing a student of mine back in June. Unfortunately the police coerced a statement out of me. Today my attorney made motions to have the statement suppressed, by the way, we are in New York State. The police felt there would be more victims; however, there are none. I have 11 charges against me. I have never been in trouble with the law, thus I was released under supervision. My lawyer feels that if a plea is made by the district attorney, which there has not been one up to this point, it would include prison time. He also said that if we go to jury trial and I am found guilty, I would face much more time than if I took the plea...my question is (as this is my first time ever being in the legal system, like I said) is this my attorney just giving worst case scenario? He did say that the police did let me go with no bail, etc. and released me under supervision...I have been teaching for 15 years as a Special Education Teacher and never had any accusations up to this point...so I am scared to death.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: New York State, June 2016JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Such as?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.
