On 15 Dec 1974, a passenger in a vehicle passing by me as I stood on a street corner in Torrance, California threw an unopened 12 oz can of beer at me. It struck me on the side of the head, and I was knocked to my knees. I don't know who the thrower was, but I recognised the driver.

I had received a underage possession and consumption of
I had received a underage possession and consumption of alcohol ticket which was completely my fault and I will be pleading guilty when I go to court. Later that night my friend was lost and needed me to come get her because she was unfamiliar with the area since she was just visiting for the oktoberfest weekend in la crosse. As I was walking her back she was stumbling and cops had stopped us and I told them that I was walking her back. They asked if I had been drinking and I told them earlier in the day I had but I already received a underage ticket. The cop refused to listen and then proceeded to write out another ticket to me which was an underage possession and consumption again. I first don't understand why the ticket says I had possession of alcohol when I didn't have alcohol on me and also I told them I had been drinking that day and already had been caught. When I was breathalyzed obviously the alcohol had not left my system yet.

This may be a question about splitting hairs, but I would
This may be a question about splitting hairs, but I would appreciate a thorough response. Harassment is a crime in the state of Maryland. So is stalking. A peace order (restraining order in other states) can be issued to a person accused of stalking or harassing someone. When a peace order is issued, the respondent is ordered to refrain from activities such as harassment and stalking. As it is a civil procedure, having a peace order issued is not the same as a criminal conviction, such as being convicted of harassment or stalking. In the interest of defining a truthful description of a person who was under a peace order, is it accurate to define that person as an "adjudicated stalker and/or harasser" or is that a false statement since the respondent was never convicted or "adjudicated" for the crimes of stalking or harassment. Thanks.

My son received citation for Purch Etc Alcoh Bev By A Minor
My 19 year old son received a citation for "Purch Etc Alcoh Bev By A Minor". They were on a basketball court playing ball after dark and the police stopped and came up to them and asked if they were drinking and gave them breathalizer tests. They were not told they would be getting citations but one just came in the mail. It says "Fine to be set". Should I have him plead guilty or not guilty? Will he have to report this on job applications as a criminal offence? And will his license be suspended?This happened in PA and on 9/17.I told him just to sign the citation as guilty but now I'm having second thoughts.

But she said because I contacted her that if I visited GA (where she lives; I live in CA) that I would have a warrant for my arrest.

I am a Colorado resident who got a ticket for possession of
I am a Colorado resident who got a ticket for possession of Marijuana in Wyoming. I got pulled over for speeding at 2am with my kids in the car. The cop said he had probable cause to search my car because he smelled pot, asked if I had anything. Because my kids were with me I told him I did and turned it over. It was in a suitcase, in my trunk, in a Tupperware in a baggie. No one knew I had it and I brought it on the trip for help with sleep since I would be driving 8 hours. I have never been in trouble before with the law, only use occasionally for sleep and I am terrified now and don't know what to expect. I have to be in Laramie WY on Monday at 9am. Any advice would be extremely helpful.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: WyomingJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I did get a summonsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
I was arrested 2 months ago for 273.5 or 273.5(a:PC),
I was arrested 2 months ago for 273.5 or 273.5(a:PC), corporal injury of spouse. I was given an arraignment date. I was bonded out for $50,000. I went to court 2 days before the arraignment because I was scheduled for surgery on the same day. The clerk ran a check on me but nothing came up. I was never given a case number. I received a letter from the clerk of the court. It stated in short that the District Atty has not filed a new case against me. I don't know why I was arrested. My wife did not want to press charges against me. But I was arrested. It's now been over 2 months. I don't know what to do. My wife has talked to the detective about my case and he said it would probably be dropped. My wife cannot even get a police report because its still an open case. What should I do?
