Basically, I was sort of seeking out advice. I go tomorrow
Hello! Basically, I was sort of seeking out advice. I go for sentencing tomorrow and was respresented by public defenders who basically did nothing for me. I ended up with three felonies and was supposed to have only probation. But, they made me sign agreeing to 90 day jail sentence (Which i have already served 40ish days of ). What I wanted some advice on…. I am currently enrolled in cosmetology and jail would cause me to be kicked out…… as well as I would be ineligible for reapplying for financial aid. So, I was basically seeing if there was anything I could do to try and get the jail sentence suspended or time served??

My brother died on 5-18 in Page, Arizona. He was. There is
My brother died on 5-18 in Page, Arizona. He was 69. There is no will. He has 1 living son. He lived in a property I purchased for him. There was nothing written about the arrangement I had with him. I did travel to Arizona approximately every 6 weeks to stay in the property. He was 100 per cent disabled veteran with full benefits. He did not work. I paid a sizable amount down and He paid me $500 a month to pay on the loan as I took out a second on my home in Nevada to cover the complete cost. I paid the taxes and the HOA fees every year. He paid the utilities. The deed is in my name. As I do not live in Arizona and my sister does she has been trying to take over my brothers things and removing everything she thinks she has a right to. I never gave her permission to be on the property. She thinks she has a say in the property because my brother lived there. She also is going to try and put his son in the property. Because I will not go along with her line of thinking she has started to threaten me. Do either her or his son have a stake in the property?

I live in Massachusetts and was a victim of a violent crime.View more legal questions
I live in Massachusetts and was a victim of a violent crime. The defendant spent 5 years in the House of Correction for attempted murder. Restitution was ordered by the judge of $273,000.00 for lost wages. He has been out of jail for 6 years and has been paying very small monthly payments under the supervision of the Probation Department. The Probation Department's supervision is due to end within two years and i would like to ensure that payments are made after his probation ends. The defendant just bought a house that has a small amount equity in it. Can I convert the judgement into a Civil judgement? Can I use the judgement order to put a lien on his house? If so, which would be most successful in ensuring that I get the money that is owed me?
