I am a sex offender convicted back in 2000 for child

I am a sex offender convicted back in 2000 for child molestation for indecent exposure in Georgia, visiting Baltimore Maryland for cancer treatment. I did finish probation and I supervision. I did registere within three business days. I though I had 7 days, I misread the Maryland law. I did, however, registered at Towson police department. I was inquiring about sheriffs role in this since I fall under transient status. I am a disabled veteran hoping work it out with the VA oncologist at the Baltimore VA hospital the option to be treated at the Johns Hopkins Oncology clinic in the near future. Concerning the felony, I made a terrible mistake while as a service member in Army while stationed in Georgia. I know this and I understand I will probably pay the piper for the rest of my life. Having said all this, I was just trying to understand the Maryland law better, and how the sheriffs part is in all this. I just received a call from Sheriff Best and that he will be visiting my brother and sister-in-law house some time in 2 weeks. Thank you for your time.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: I came from Hawaii for cancer treatment. I was convicted of child molestation because according to my lawyer, Georgia has not tiers or categories for sex offense so all offender convicted in Georgia with a minor under the age seventeen is placed in same category with the other sex offenders.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NopeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just hope I get clarity on the sex offender law in Maryland, not here to be problem. I hope to receive cancer treatment at Johns Hopkins oncology clinic and I will move out of the state of Maryland.

My son 3 weeks into turning 18 sent a partially nude pic of

My son 3 weeks into turning 18 sent a partially nude pic of his ex girlfriend who was 17 in a group chat with his new girlfriend and some of their mutual friends. He had the ex blocked but one of the girls in the chat had been called down to the school office on an unrelated issue where she had to produce her cell phone. They questioned who sent that pic and then the investigation began. This was 9 months ago. My sons phone was seized in September and now my son is in his 4th week at bootcamp. My son and the ex in the photo that she sent to my son reconciled and are friends again. We called the investigators who are on this case and they said they can only speak to our son. We don't know what to do especially with him being in the military now we don't want this to hinder his future.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IndianaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Nothing filed and no charges. I did call the prosecutors office yesterday but no response as of yet. The original school resource officer who was investigating this just called and said because our son is an adult he can only talk to him. We did not tell him he was away at bootcamp for fear he'd probably try to ruin our sons future. Our son has never been in trouble until this poor choice he made.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No ma'am. Thank you.

I'm in the middle of a child custody battle with my ex-wife.

Hello. I'm in the middle of a child custody battle with my ex-wife. It's a bitter and ugly mess. Anyway, to make a long story short, when I picked up my daughter on Friday (this weekend). I sat there and waited for 20 minutes. I called my daughter's cell phone, but it went to voicemail since it was turned off (battery dead?). And this happens all the time. I couldn't knock on the door, since my ex-wife told me that she doesn't want me knocking on her door or on her new husband's property. Needless to say, it's a bad situation. The only good thing is that my daughter is on my side and wants to live with me. Well, anyway, ....JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, moment. I didn't know you'd respond so quickly. Anyway, .... when she finally came to my car, I was furious. She made me wait there so long and didn't even have her cell phone on. So I guess she charged it a bit while I was waiting. Anyway, she comes to my vehicle, gets in, we leave ... and while we are driving back to my place, she accidentally made a "Butt call" via her cell phone (to her mother) and her mother heard me yell, scream and curse at my daughter. I know this, because when I got home, my ex-wife sent me some text messages berrating me about cursing out my daughter ... and said she was going to call the police if she didn't talk to my daughter to make sure she was ok.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Moment .... So my daughter called her mother and assured her that everything was ok.
