This question might be outside your area of expertise and or with in the intent of the "justanswer" guidelines because this is for my own personnel research. here in lies my question; recently Secretary Clinton was found to be reckless but not guilty of a crime in the whole Email escapade. The reason given was the could not find any "malicious intent" by the FBI.do you have any idea what statute or law covers this and if so is "malicious intent" spelled out or just understood in this type of a violation. the other reason given was there was no previous president that demonstrated criminal prosecution in similar situations. here is a link to director Comeys statement........https://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/statement-by-fbi-director-james-b-comey-on-the-investigation-of-secretary-hillary-clinton2019s-use-of-a-personal-e-mail-system

I was charged with a domestic violence that was dismissed.

Hello,I was charged with a domestic violence that was dismissed. During this process I had 4 guns taken by the police dept. After the charges was dropped and I tried to get my firearms back the court and police said I needed to fill out a claim and delivery form to get my guns back. I have since received paperwork from the court a notice to appear and that police department is contesting my eligibility to get my firearms back. Also I am a 19 year veteran of the military that is still currently serving. Is this something that is pretty straight forward since the charges were dropped / dismissed or is this something that I need to hire an attorney for?

I am charged with two counts of pointing and showing a

I am charged with two counts of pointing and showing a pistol and one count of illegal transport of a weapon across state line in South Carolina. All three charges came from a pick up truck pulling up behind me after we had words and the driver getting out of the truck and walking toward my car in front of him at a stop light. I was blocked in by other cars and could not move. I showed him my gun and told him to get back into the truck. I believe it was self defense. I also suffer from Post Tramatic Stress Disorder from three tours in Viet Nam. Trying to decide between a Public Defender or hire a lawyer. Can you suggest either of these. Also what can I expect to be charged for the lawyer if I decide to hire one? Thanks, ***** *******, Myrtle Beach, SC.

I am attempting to purchase a hand gun and during the

I am attempting to purchase a hand gun and during the background check there is an arrest record from 1984 for a class 4 misdemeanor assault. I recall that incident and it was a fist fight with my brother, and that charges were never filed by the DA. The Oregon State police are not able to find clear evidence of the no charges - all they see is the arrest. I have contacted the arresting municipality and they have no records from that far back..Can OSP deny the sale of the weapon based on not being able to find clear evidence that there is no conviction? I thinking it is the opposite - they would need to find clear evidence of a conviction before being able to 'Deny'. Even with a conviction I am thinking this case would not meet the standard of Domestic Violence since we were both adults and not living in the same household...Can you confirm or correct my thoughts?
