In Indiana my 16 yr old nephew was questioned and searched

In Indiana my 16 yr old nephew was questioned and searched in the drive way of his home. There was no crime committed . The officers stated this was for safety reasons . He was not being taken into custody . He asked The officers to please allow him to go get his parents whom were jus inside the home. He was denied 3 times . This obviously was a violation of law. They are now trying to put my nephew on probation after the cops reported to juvenile authorities that my nephew had in his possession 2 pills( controlled scheduled 2) even though his friend admitted they were his not my nephews . My nephew and his parents have been completely denied access to the police report because there was another juvenile involved . They said they could not legally provide the report . Doesn't my nephew have the right to face his accusers and can't he see the report ?

In school today, one of the classmates of my 11 year old son

In school today, one of the classmates of my 11 year old son deliberately urinated on his gym bag to "teach him a lesson"Circumstances aside, civil actions aside, besides malicious destruction of property could I possibly have the juvenile charged with? There is some confusion with law enforcement since this happened in the locker room and not in a classroom or hallway if there could be a perceived sex crime (indecent exposure, perverted act, etc) I would like some general guidance as to applicable Maryland criminal codes that may address this.

When I was 17 I was arrested for Grand Theft (felony). I

When I was 17 I was arrested for Grand Theft (felony). I plead guilty in order to qualify for their program and had the charge SEALED. I am now applying for a Insurance license for the state of Florida 6 years later, I believe its called the 620 to become an auto damage adjuster. Will I have any issues with obtaining this license? I have been told its the states decision... But there has to be some boundaries where I can figure out this answer. My employer is seeking this license in order to start. Which is why I am in such a predicament. Thanks for the help!

When I was 16 I was arrested for minor possession of alcohol

When I was 16 I was arrested for minor possession of alcohol and I got a conditional discharge as a first offense. I am now 30. Will this show up on a background check? I always answered no to a conviction because I thought my father, who dealt with the lawyers at the time, said it was sealed and would not show up.

M*** Jr, I just have a question about NICS background check.

Hello, My name is******** Jr, I just have a question about NICS background check. So, I have purchased a handgun from a local gun store about 3 days ago because my friend got me into target shooting at the range. So I passed my FSC test and bought a hand gun the next day. The gentleman says I would have to come back in 10 days to pick it up, so I did some research on gun safety to better my knowledge and came across nics background checks. On question C (Have you ever been convicted of a felony, or any other crime) I answered NO, but I have been arrested before as a juvenile when i was 16 for a threat I said to of of my classmates. I was young & dumb and should have known better but the student took it seriously and told the principal and the situation escalated. I was brought to juvenile hall for a night. Next day judge released me on 3 month house arrest. Was in good standings with my probation officer. So I had a record but my PO officer told me that my record would go away once i turned 18. So I dont know if I should have answered yes or no on the question. I am very nervous and do not want to get in trouble for lying on the test. What will happen? I should have did a little more research before purchasing a firearm. JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge? Customer: It is in CA, and to be honest I do not remember what they charged me with. All i remember is it was a death threat to a classmate JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet? Customer: No i have not. JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: That is all

Re: Juvenile Hawaii Law A 11-year-old girl relative and

Re: Juvenile Hawaii Law A 11-year-old girl relative and 13-year-old boy neighbor i guess i went into a vacant apartment. Supposedly the 13 year old broke the window to get access to apt. On the same day or a different day the 11 year old and 13 year old went into apartment. 13 year old opened up back sliding door. 11 year old followed. the 13 year old took Dawn and squeezed it all around the apartment, ceilings, etc. That's it. Apartment called cops. Should the 11 year old admit to this? As an adult an atty would say to remain silent right w/ cops? how about 11 year old? I'd like to let this be training moment for 11 year old. her errors doesn't seem that big to me. comments? I'm assuming if juvenile record it could be sealed? The rumor is the apartmet is claiming damages and robbery charges - I don't get it?
