I was arrested after calling police, claiming self defense against my boyfriend who attacked me first. I think I was charged by the police for "over doing" self defense. My boyfriend didn't and isn't going to press charges. Wondering what we should do on the court date.

My ex and I split up, they left my stuff in the garage to

My ex and I split up, they left my stuff in the garage for me to pick up,but forgot one item. I went into the house and got it. Later I ended up buying them one Bc I felt bad they didn't have one anyways. Now a year and a half later they are saying it was breaking and entering Bc they asked me not to enter the house. They are saying they have video evidence from next door neighbors and are threatening to take to police if I don't pay them 2200. If we both lived there but it was in her name would it be breaking and entering if I didn't steal anything? And how lond does she have before this runs out. It all just seems so bogus now.

I received a "Driving while Impaired" (not drunk) in

I received a "Driving while Impaired" (not drunk) in Michigan last week with an obstruction charge for not taking the breathalizer test. Both misdemeanors. I have 2 prior DUI,s in Florida , where I reside.. The last being in 1989. I am curious to know how this will play out in Florida against my license. Also , 3+ years ago I filed to have my civil rights ( now restored) and right to own a weapon restored ( still waiting for this part). I applied as I have a 3rd degree felony that came from trying to get a fake ID after not having a DL due to the DUI in 1989. As well , what do you think will happen to my clemency request? All tied together and have me worried.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: I received a "Driving while Impaired" (not drunk) in Michigan last week with an obstruction charge for not taking the breathalizer test.

I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in

I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in Wyoming, citation code no: 6-5-204. This is the definition on the Justia US Law Site: A person commits a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000.00), or both, if he knowingly obstructs, impedes or interferes with or resists arrest by a peace officer while engaged in the lawful performance of his official duties.I received a citation for fishing without a WY fishing license, and I then provided false identity information to the officer (name, address, phone, dob). The following day the officer then discovered I had lied. I am guilty and intend to plead guilty.I have a hearing in Jackson Hole on Thursday, 7/28, and need to know if I should have an attorney present. It's considered a misdemeanor.Please don't answer if your response is simply, "yes, it's advised that you have an attorney present."Thanks!Michael

I am just looking because I just found out that the police

Hi Pearl - I am just looking for information because I just found out that the police report for the charges of domestic violence against my husband contains some information that I haven't said... And which is aggravating the case. I am new to this country and did not know how far this would go by involving the police. I just want my husband and I if need be to go to counseling and reunite as a family for the sake of our little boy... But I don't know how things will turn since I understand now it is out of my control. Can you help?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: California, it happened mid JuneJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No I haven'tJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Yes there are also pictures in the police report... They probably don't need me anymore now but I have a good relationship with the victims advocate at the da office and have been explaining from the beginning that I didn't think it was right to send my husband to jail even though at first I didn't want to go back to him. I however now do want to save my family and moreover have found that they exagerated the report and the things I said.
