I was just wondering if someone is on parole with 1 year

i was just wondering if someone is on parole with 1 year left and no violations or positive U.A.'s, and they want to go to Their family time share in mexico for their mom & dad to renew their vows, does CBP ask for a note from your P.O. or can they see that you are on parole?JA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TEXASJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: My father in law is a retired attorney but in New Orleans. He still has the firm named after him, however he is retired and is 82 and has dementia.......so no i haven't talked to a Texas lawyer, but i have friends (lots of them) that work for CBP in texas. but I don't want them to know this person is on parole. but I do know a lady (In Texas) that is on parole for shooting and killing her son (she said it was self defense, but i wasn't there) and she has traveled out of the country 6 times with no problem. she never let her officer know she was going and went and came back with no problems at all.........so i wouldn't think they ask for anything or can see that info. and that is a murder charge and I'm asking about someone who just had a drug charge but is clean and on minimal security and only has to report once every 3 months. what do you think>????JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No.. like i said, no dirty UA's or Violations while on parole and is off in 1 year left on paper come July 26thJA: OK.

I have a friend, who recently got into a fight during a

I have a friend, who recently got into a fight during a soccer game. There were two referees who both told the police that my friend did not start the fight. He left the stadium before the police arrived. Although he did not throw the first punch he did win the fight, so his opponent was bleeding badly and filed charges with the local police. Also, he did get examined by the ambulance, but nothing permanent seemed to happen. Now the strange part, a few days later a police office went to his house while he was out of town and interviewed his wife. The officer pushed her pretty hard on domestic abuse. Had he ever hit her etc. She denied that there had ever been any violence in their marriage and asked the officer to leave. The officer said nothing about an altercation at the stadium. Now they are concerned that there will be another shoe to drop. So a few questions1. Would it be wise to get the police reports from either of the occasions?2. Perhaps it is wiser not to draw any attention to it3. How can he find out if charges were actually filed and where the case is?4. Is there a way to check and see if a civil case has been filed?5. Should he pro-actively file assault charges against this guy?6. What should he try to document?7. Most importantly how would one find a local attorney with experience in similar cases?Thanks

Im in the process of applying to be a financial rep. I

Hi. Im in the process of applying to be a financial rep. I need to get a life, health, series 6, 63, and 7. I have 2 criminal cases against me from 10 and 5 years ago. The first was for defamation at the end of high school, and the 2nd was for a disorderly conduct stemming from a medical crisis from a medication interaction.JA: My brothers got into lots of trouble with the law when they were young. The Criminal Lawyer will know how to get you the best outcome. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: I dont get a clear answer. But Edward Jontes turned me down for it 3 years ago despite no conviction. Idk if thats legal? And I wasnt sure if even after all this time if I would be able to pass an SEC or Finra background?JA: Is there anything else important you think the Criminal Lawyer should know?Customer: No thats about it. I would like to know what they think. They all resulted in municipal tickets, not criminal convictions. I wanted to know if that is an auto disqualifier or if that is actually different than a criminal conviction and if finra would disqualify me for it?JA: OK. Got it.

I am not involved on this. A friend of mine is being charged

Hi, I am not involved on this. A friend of mine is being charged with a first time felony domestic violence. She has a first time DUI and is on probation. What are the likely outcomes of this (worst and best)? This is in California. She claims that she was beaten by his boyfriend but somehow she does not want to disclose that to the police. Some neighbor called and police went directly looking for her and asked his bf to take his shirt off and took pictures.
