We are speaking on behalf of our brother Kahlil as he is
We are speaking on behalf of our brother Kahlil as he is unfortunately deceased as of 10-31-2008 due to being struck and killed by an automobile in Hebron, Kentucky.On 7-11-2008, our Brother, Kahlil was on his 3rd intoxication related offense and as opposed to ordering him for counseling and treatment, Kahlil was denied his constitutional rights to counsel by Judge Gregory T. Popovic, in Campbell County, Kentucky.We learned that Kahlil could not afford to pay for a private attorney, was not appointed an attorney, and without an attorney or sophisticated knowledge of the court system, Kahlil was in effect forced to plead guilty at his initial arraignment. He was arrested, arraigned and sentenced to an unnecessarily harsh jail sentence under the circumstances all in the same day.We filed a complaint against Judge Gregory T. Popovic with the Judicial Conduct Commission, in Kentucky.February 16, 2016, they sent us a letter stating that he was officially reprimanded which he agreed and signed off on.Our, question is do we have any legal options against Judge Gregory T. Popovic and/or the Commonwealth of Kentucky and if so, what kind of lawyer would we want to hire?Thank you,Julian Starks
I lost a case in circuit court on some trickery by the state
I lost a case in circuit court on some trickery by the state attorney and the lack of alertness by the council that I could afford to have represent me. Since that time I have found that I should seek help to get back in court so that I could present the evidence using testimony instead of a written report by my then attorney Do you provide the help needed to prepare a motion or motions for a new trail on the matter. if so how do we do it.thanksJ Adams
An ordinance violation. I'm not sure if my 18 year old son
An ordinance violation. I'm not sure if my 18 year old son should have a lawyer with him for a status conference. I really can't afford a lawyer. The violation is for possession of an illegal substance (pot) JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: He was stopped in a car with other kids in August. He was not driving but was in the backseat. The others were charged as juveniles but because he was turning 18 in December they decided to charge him as an adult. They asked us to wait for more paper work to come in the mail. The charges were not reissued until 1-29-16 and we got the paperwork about the status conference on 2-3-16 and he is to appear on 2-16-16. We are in the state of Wisconsin. He has never been in trouble before. Since that August he has turned things around and is trying to be a responsible adult. He said to me "Mom, I'm not that person anymore" I just don't want to go into the conference unprepared. I also don't want him to have to take responsibility for the other juveniles in the car. The driver is essentially in the same grade as my son but technically a half year younger so he was charged as a juvenile JA: OK got it.

I am 21. I was convicted of a DUI on Nov. 16th. My trial is
I am 21. I was convicted of a DUI on Nov. 16th. My trial is tomorrow. I am a student at the university of vermont. My permanent address is in New York and I have a NYS license. However I also have an address in vermont for when I am away at school. I was planning to go home for the next month and a half to work over my winter break and help my mom who recently had hip surgery. How will me semi- split residency affect my case? Is there a way to obtain a conditional license for work and school? What is your advice? And what should I expect tomorrow?
I've been a resident of Mississippi last 9 years. I'm a
Hi,I've been a resident of Mississippi for the last 9 years. I'm a firefighter so I stay out of trouble. I was in a dating relationship with a girl for three months. I ended things around two months ago and she was upset over this. She drives by my house and sends me text messages threatening to kill me, and calls me frequently.Earlier this week, I had a deputy come to my house and arrest me. I was charged with misdemeanor stalking and telephone harassment. The investigator interviewed me and explained that her nude pictures had been uploaded online with her name and city and state on them. I invoked my right to counsel and terminated the interview without answering any questions. At no time have I had ever threatened her or told her I would do such a thing. The pictures were sent to me by her so we both had possession of the pictures plus anyone else she may have sent them to.There is ZERO evidence that I uploaded these pictures and yes I really didn't upload them. They are basing the charges solely on her affidavit.I went and talked to a deputy I know and showed him the threatening messages and he charged her with simple assault by threat and also the judge signed a 10-day restraining order against her.What is my best course of action? Can I petition to have the charges dropped based on a lack of evidence?
Seven years ago, my daughter and son in law build a biggerView more legal questions
Seven years ago, my daughter and son in law build a bigger house in Raleigh and ask meto come an live in the townhouse they vacated. I am on a fixed income so the rent wasmore or lease fexible....generally $700 a month.Last January 2015, They separated. My son in law wanted to move back into the townhouse...so I found another place to move in. Everything was ready to go, ready to move in, but my daughter stepped in and said I should move in with her to help with mygrandchildren and save on expenses. I got rid of the majority of my furniture and household items and moved into her house.It is a large house, so I moved into the 3rd floor bedroom/wth bath. She took over all of my income and I gave her all the stocks and bonds I had been holding onto. There has been no lease, nothing legal about the money. Just live with her. I have 2 surgeries in the next month, I am 70 years old...have trouble walking.She now has a boyfriend that has moved in and now she says I must get out! No warning, no idea of where to go. It's been 10years of her managing my money and generally over seeing my health care. In return I do all housework and keep my wonderful grandchildren.Does she have any legal right to make me pack a small bag and leave, with no place to go?
