If someone (an estranged spouse) finds their husband

If someone (an estranged spouse) finds their husband unconscious/unresponsive from obvious known diabetic complications and instead of attempting to render aid (calling an ambulance, police, etc) leaves the person knowing that in so doing, the person will die, and does indeed pass away, what charges does that person face if proven she did not provide any aid at the time of discovery?

From Texas have a felony conviction it was deferred adjudication.

From Texas have a felony conviction it was deferred adjudication. I have been off probation for over 10 years. I have purchased several guns and been approved. I recently applied for a concealed handgun license and was denied. This has me worried that I may not even suppose to been able to purchase a firearm. I answered no that I have not been convicted because in my mind I always thought I wasn't convicted because it was deferred. My wife keeps saying that the background would not have gone through even if I made a mistake on the application. What do you suggest ?

I have a negligent homicide conviction back in 1988 in the state of Michigan, I was not under the influence and it was an accident. I have applied for a concealed pistol permit, and got denied because of this even though this charge is a misdemeanor. I also understand that the negligent homicide statute was repealed in January 2009. I would like to get this expunged from my record, but do not know who to talk to or where to go. please help

I have been reading a book on Criminology, and it says that

I have been reading a book on Criminology, and it says that 7 requirements must be met in order for a crime to be considered committed. One of these requirements is the causative requirement. And I was just wondering if an example of the causative requirement would be like what I saw once in a TV episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. If a person has an accident and is in danger of dying, and the person's relative tries to rush him/her to the hospital, and then on the way to the hospital comes across a driver that deliberately won't allow him/her to pass even though he/she keeps honking and yelling at the driver that he/she needs to get to the hospital, and then if the relative that tried to take the one in the accident to the hospital crashes on account of because the driver wouldn't allow him/her to pass, and then the relative of the one in an accident has to hitchhike to get a ride to the hospital, and then when they arrive at the hospital, the medical staff tells the relative "We're sorry. Your loved one passed away. Had you brought him/her here sooner, we might have been able to save his/her life." Would the driver be charged for murder in this situation, or would this be an example where the driver wouldn't be charged for murder because the causative requirement was NOT met since the accident was the real cause of death? Thank you.

I live in Florida and had an emotional reaction when I read an email from a local government agency that ruled against me. I sent a hastily written response and I am concerned I accidentally engaged in extortion. Could you please read what I wrote and let me know if I may have engaged in extortion? Here is the Florida law: http://www.richardhornsby.com/crimes/fraud/extortion.html#Definition If you feel I did NOT engage in extortion, please explain why. Here is what I wrote: Make no mistake, this is not going away. Your departments are an embarrassment to Florida. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Those going up against [person] on November 4th are going to have a field day with everything I provide them (the open records requests I did on the [entity] were quite fruitful...). Unless of course he wasn't aware of this and would like to take proper action between now and then. You can reach me here if you wish, [person]. After submitting that I rereading it, I realized not only was I being emotional, but it could be interpreted as extortion because I worded it poorly. Here is the followup email I sent: [person], Everything I have read about you makes me think you are a very stand-up guy. Sorry about the previous email a couple of minutes ago, I was simply frustrated and had an emotional reaction. I have no intention of releasing documents to your competitors though I do plan to release this entire story to the public once I have finished writing it. I have no doubt that you have no idea what is going on. Cliff notes version: I found that the [entity] was spraying one of their pesticides in violation of the label. The enforcement arms of the state have done nothing but utilize extremely weak arguments to justify the [entity]illegal activities. I am extremely frustrated at this point and would appreciate it if you would review the matter. Thoughts? Is there anything else I should do? Am I in trouble? Why or why not?
