Rob: Yes, actually 3 total (2 felony)
The first one I beat because I told the officer that I would not consent to a search.
The second one I didn’t know about because they waited 6 months to charge me and another 17 months to actually arrest me. I ended up pleading guilty to public intoxication because the prosecutor didn’t like the smell of the police report.
The third one was during my arrest for the 2nd one. Felony possession, Felony failure to affix a drug tax stamp, using a motor vehicle to commit a felony and a few other minor charges.
I was given a deferred judgment probably because at the time I was a full time student, employed, and had just finished doing volunteer work when I got arrested. I ended up getting 18 months probation, about $1000 in fines/court costs/DARE contribution and waving a bunch of rights involving alcohol, voting, guns and traveling. They wanted information of course but once they realized I was simply passing through the town where I was busted, anyone else connected would be out of their jurisdiction. And that everyone else involved was family and there was no possibility of cooperation.
My advice to you is to never consent to a search, the 4th amendment to the bill of rights protects us from the police. Probable cause can almost always be argued against effectively. On my first charge the cop said his probable cause was the marijuana odor inside my car. Well he couldn’t really bring the odor of my car into the courtroom as evidence.
I’ve stayed out of trouble and kept my criminal record fairly sqeaky clean by not cooperating and keeping my mouth shut. When they say anything you say will be used against you, they really mean it.

Got a driver in possession of marijuana ticket and my recommendation is expired.Am i in trouble? I just got a ticket for possession of marijuana ticket and my recommendation is expired. I have been planning to go renew but haven’t had the time. My question is if I go get a new card, would I still be able to fight this ticket? I know that the start date of when the recommendation was issued, so I’m worried that it might make it more of a headache to fight it than to just pay for it and move on. HELP!

John B: What the hell is there to fight at the ticket time you were expired? Some Judge might just question your necessity.

What are the charges for a juvenile caught stealing alcohol? The other night me and three friends were caught stealing 7 thirty packs of beer, I was given a minor in possession while driving, petty theft robbery, running a stop sign, and having a fake I.D. I’d like to know if the robbery is a felony or misdemeanor. I’ve had two warnings and about a year ago a friend and I were given a minor in possession. So what am I looking at? I’m 17.

FRAGINAL-NOYPI: The minor will be placed under rehabilitation when caught stealing alcohol.

How is unintentionally touching a woman in a subway a sex crime? I have seen videos on you tube where they say this is a sex crime now but how is this when the subways during rush hour are jam packed to where you cannot help to touch the person in front of you, do you think this is bull$hit?

chanmo: women…..what do u expect?
HM 10: Only a crime if intentional to a personal area, not a crime if unintended or just to assist or because your quashed together
War Hero: Is that true? It would have to be on breast or ass then, because there’s no way for just accidentally touching her back or leg.
Tokyo E: It isn’t a crime.
It isn’t a crime to touch someone by accident/unintentionally.
It is a crime to touch someone not by accident/ inappropriately/intentionally.
There’s a major difference between the two.
Alex: not if you say sorry
R G: you try your best not to – This happens all over the world
Rachel: no it’s because girls in Japan are always getting “accidently” touched on their ass or legs so they are probably just cracking down in this to stop this.
threedaypriest: There’s a difference between touching and groping. There’s a difference between an ‘accidental’ and ‘intentional’ touch. The law addresses the latter of the two. Keep your hands on the straps above your head and don’t move your groin around excessively. You’ll be okay.
