  1. Online Services: Re: Arrested by Police for Buying a $180 Moped on Facebook Marketplace

    Which implies something more than simply finding him in possession. Though, that is not a certainty. Depending on the details, they may think they can show that he knew or reasonably should have...
  2. Online Services: Re: Arrested by Police for Buying a $180 Moped on Facebook Marketplace

    Maybe not. But, the way he was talking made it sound like he got a deal of some kind. The question is, was it actually a MOPED? Or, was it some sort of scooter? I don't see many true mopeds out...
  3. Online Services: Re: Arrested by Police for Buying a $180 Moped on Facebook Marketplace

    If the case is weak, the DA may choose not to pursue it. If, however, they have sufficient evidence to pursue the charges, they will.

    Provide your attorney with all the info you have and listen...
  4. Re: Legal to Audio Record a Verbally Abusive Parent

    What Taxing Matters said. Such a recording is a crime.

    However, if you are the child and use the recording to point out what you believe is rudeness on behalf of your parent, and you limit the...
  5. Sex Offenses: Re: Teacher in the East Bay Prosecuted Over 10 Years Later

    There are a few... which misdemeanor are you talking about? MOST are one year from the time of the incident (with a few exceptions). But, that is NOT what the teacher is being charged with.

    We...
  6. Civil Rights Issues: Re: How to "Be Made Whole" After the Dismissal of an Arrest in the Interest

    All because you believe it to be so does not mean it is. Legal innocence is a different matter entirely. But, you aren't here to learn, you are here to rant. So, have fun.
  7. Civil Rights Issues: Re: How to "Be Made Whole" After the Dismissal of an Arrest in the Interest

    Once again, a "dismissal" does not legally mean "innocent."
  8. Civil Rights Issues: Re: How to "Be Made Whole" After the Dismissal of an Arrest in the Interest

    The fact that the matter was dropped does NOT mean you were "innocent." Even so, so long as the police and the prosecutor's office had probable cause to make the arrest and pursue the legal action,...
  9. Civil Rights Issues: Re: How to "Be Made Whole" After the Dismissal of an Arrest in the Interest of Justic

    There is no provision in the law for you to be "made whole" by virtues of being acquitted in a court of law, or if the case was dropped for whatever reason. If there was some form of egregious...

    Re: Dropped Charges

    A private person's arrest (aka a citizen's arrest) must be supported by probable cause - even if said cause is merely the statement of the alleged victim. And, no, the officers did have a choice -...
  11. Sex Offenses: Re: Teacher in the East Bay Prosecuted Over 10 Years Later

    This is why the details matter. The most common charge for patting a butt, even of a child, would be sexual battery (PC 243.4). There'd have to be much more for a charge of PC 288 to have a remote...
  12. Sex Offenses: Re: Teacher in the East Bay Prosecuted Over 10 Years Later

    There are a number of exceptions in both the civil and criminal codes. You are free to do a lot of reading if you'd like. The teacher is not being charged with misdemeanor sexual battery, but,...
  13. Sex Offenses: Re: Teacher in the East Bay Prosecuted Over 10 Years Later

    There IS a statute of limitations for certain enumerated offenses as included in PC 801.1. The scenario you mention, the touching of a breast or buttocks, would most likely be charged as PC 243.4...
  14. Sex Offenses: Re: Teacher in the East Bay Prosecuted Over 10 Years Later

    Maybe (though it'd be "not guilty" as opposed to "innocent"). However, depending upon the facts that are presented, given the strength of the teachers unions here, provided she does not admit to...
  15. Sex Offenses: Re: Teacher in the East Bay Prosecuted Over 10 Years Later

    In 2018 new law was passed that (effective January 1st, 2019) would permit prosecution of child sex offenses up until the victim's 40th birthday (PC 801.1). So, no, criminal charges could not be...
  16. Re: Can a Judge Use Their Court to Enforce Compliance with a Different Court

    They can call it informal probation, bench probation, or something else. Bottom line, as long as you are still ON probation, you are subject to the terms of said probation.

    As jk mentioned, it...
  17. Re: Can a Judge Use Their Court to Enforce Compliance with a Different Court

    The answer to virtually any question that begins with the words, "Can a judge ....", is "Yes."

    You are free to speak to your attorney about this and see what they have to say.

    Have you...
  18. Re: What a Police Officer Can See when They Run My License Plate

    If you have to register with the state, and this database is readily accessible to law enforcement, then it is possible that an officer can find out about that status if they run your name. If they...
  19. Driver's License Issues: Re: Regarding the 12 Month Restrictions on a Provisional License

    The issue date and the date of the provisional status should be on the license itself. How did the officer determine that you were driving in violation of your provisional status?

    The status...

    Re: Should a Murder Charge Be Even Considered

    Makes sense. But, something about it seems to rankle anyway. Makes me wonder, though, why we don't see more moves like that with high profile offenses.

    Re: Should a Murder Charge Be Even Considered

    It might vary by state because we have made careful decisions out here to avoid pursuing cases or accepting pleas too early in order to avoid overlooking more serious, related offenses. But, I...

    Re: Should a Murder Charge Be Even Considered

    But, I would think that because the death arose from the same fact set for which he was convicted it might be double jeopardy. It would seem akin to adding a new crime to try if you didn't get the...

    Re: Police Profiling of Mentally Ill Subjects

    In theory, anything might be possible. In practice, law enforcement details mentally ill subjects for evaluation by mental health professionals. The final assessment of whether they are a danger to...

    Well, if you had been cited for another offense, you run the risk of a point, But, for the violation you posted, no.
