For Joey_JD please Hi Fran, it's me OCD girl with some new questions. Short answers will suffice. A) In your professional opinion could you tell me any reasons why the new jersey case could still be open after I had been to court, did what they told me and my lawyer took me out to celebrate. I know you don't have a crystal ball and I know it will only be a guess but would you mind hazarding one. B) If I get convicted of a misdemeanor like the New York Theft thingie would I definitely then go to jail for the simple assault? (The new york crime would have probably have been committed before the NJ false accusation) C) If I get convicted in Germany of criminal defamation (would not get jail just a fine - I checked) would that automatically mean jail also? D) If I get probation and then get convicted of one of the things mentioned in B) and C) would that automatically then mean jail for the simple assault. E) Is Perjury considered a strike in the three strike law? F) Is a strike from another country considered a strike in the USA? I know these are stupid questions and I should not dwell but I am trying to get closure. A real quick answer to each one would be much appreciated. Thank you
