This might be a bit lengthy and come with multiple questions

This might be a bit lengthy and come with multiple questions starting with this "trespassing" offense happened in Fort Pierce, Florida. No court date as of today.My first question is, can I demand a jury trial being it is a misdemeanor offense? and in your opinion will it be granted?Once I win this case and I am 100% certain I will, what civil charges can I bring against the city/county/police department? Can I also file a US civil rights case in US Federal court?I am not presently represented by a lawyer, still in the process of research for pricing/experience and win/loss record.That is all for now....Nick

A 19 y/o male was recently found guilty on 5 felony counts.

Hello, a 19 y/o male was recently found guilty on 5 felony counts. Sentencing is set for March 10 in Indiana. The current lawyer is not interested in appealing the verdict. The family is unable to pay another lawyer. Are there pro bono criminal appeal lawyers or would this family need to go with a public defender for the appeal process? Also can you list reasons as to why a key witness would be allowed to offer a video testimony only? Reason given by the state was that because his girlfriend is expecting. This does not seem to be a valid reason when the testimony of this person could make a difference in someone being released or spending the rest of the life in prison.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: Indiana- 35-42-1-1(1) murder, 35-42-1-1(2) murder, 35-42-5-1 (2)/F2 Robbery resulting in serious bodily injury, Robbery by putting someone in fear and r,35-47-2-1/F5: Felon carrying handgunJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: in terms of the appeal?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, also how a known accomplice can testify for the state and possibly have all charges against her dropped

I'm in Oregon, and I broke a contract for a Gymanstics

Hello, I'm in Oregon, and I broke a contract for a Gymanstics studio after they we failed to come to agreement. They sent me to collections and now they're suing me for 1200.00 bucks. I countered this with requesting a jury trial, and I think that put it into a civil suite from a small claims case. Is this worth fighting, or will I end up paying the money regardless?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Yes, Oregon.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, I paid 150 dollars requesting a jury trial. Now it's a Civil case, as opposed to the original small claims case.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, other than I'm wondering if this is something worth fighting? I definitely broke the agreement/
