michelob86: See attached….
Zeff: You won’t
wizjp: I’d try Legal Aid, Lawyer’s referral from the phone book or you migh find a link on www.probono.net
but any decent DUI atty is going to want to be paid; consider making a payment plan with a good local one
scottclear: If it is a misdemeanor, you aren’t entitled to a public defender. Likely, there is not a program that covers criminal cases, so you probably cannot find a pro bono attorney for this charge. Call around to the attorneys that handle traffic/DUI cases, find the cheapest one, and retain him/her. They will manage to continue your case until you have paid the attorney fee.
Next time, don’t drive under the influence.

Gerald: That is why public defenders exhist.. Ask who ever posted bail for you the pay for the attorney. I don’t think they have computers in jail???
A federal appeals court in Washington Thursday struck down the Texas voter ID law requiring photos for voters at the polls, calling it racially discriminatory. The decision is a major victory for the Obama administration and its Democratic allies, which had challenged the law. Republican Gov. Rick Perry had signed the voter ID
The law would have the effect of denying or abridging the right to vote on account of race, said the Court.
Right to vote is mentioned in the several of the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution directly and in others indirectly. The Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits each government in the United States from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen’s “race, color, or previous condition of servitude” (for example, slavery). It was ratified on February 3, 1870. Also The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits any United States citizen to be denied the right to vote based on sex etc., and also the 24th Amendment. Furthermore, indirectly in the 14th Amendment.
@ Matt, see above.

ocularnervosa: It was the Constitutional thing to do. The Texas state law was in violation of the 24th Amendment.

Now that is the most racist statement I have ever heard!! Where is Al Sharpton and the Democrats? They cry racism when there is none and ignore REAL racism.
To say that because someone is black that they can’t get an ID is blatantly racist. What’s more it is patently STUPID!!!
Matt: They made the right decision to strike it down.
Voting is not a right specifically mentioned in the Constitution anywhere, the unconstitutional part to this provision however is requiring voting IDs to even vote at all.
I see the point in this Voter ID law and that’s to help prevent voter fraud from illegals and such, but it’s not the right course of action still. 2 wrongs, don’t make a right.
If our government would end the “endless” bureaucracy and start doing it’s job to usurp voting fraud by first protecting our borders to prevent illegals from crossing, and to take adequate action and implement protocols to prevent further fraud at the state and local levels.
Finally — Voter ID cards if allowed would ultimately lead to bigger things like National ID cards. The problem with both of these IDs is that it oversteps constitutional boundaries and invades on an individuals privacy..
Imagine America having required ID cards by law.. People would have no privacy then. We would be living in a authoritarian state.

during an investigation officials questioned a person that had been given fake money. he had shown the money to his dad and left it with him. did not spend it or try to pass it falsely. the fake money was retrieved from his dad that verified the same story but officials still charged this person with altering a federal document 2 counts , or something like that charge. a federal crime.

Burt: Possessions of altering or reproducing Federal Notes, are against the law and subject to arrest.
An investigation will resume to see how serious is the crime committed.
John J. S: Apparently you can be charged since you were. Duuh!
Question: Why give it to dear old dad instead of turning it in to the authorities immediately?
Being charged is not being prosecuted, is not being convicted. Cops want the answer to the above question. Prosecutor may decline the case. Judge may dismiss with or without prejudice (with prejudice is good for the accused). Jury may return not guilty verdict.
Possession of marijuana, will I still be able to become a pilot for a major airline?

dugsbeans: NO. Your dream is over. Sorry.
Michael: In all likelihood, yes. I imagine they’ll put some weight on how long ago it was and if it had an “Intent to distribute” attached to it, but as long as you are otherwise qualified, the offense is not recent, and you pass their own drug test if they have one, it is unlikely to be a problem.
secpd6: I sure hope not!
arcane iconoclast: Nope,thank goodness.There are too many drug free non law breakers in line behind you.Next.
Tony: lol Dont sweat it buddy, my cousin is a DEA agent and he was caught with weed twice in his college days. So you really have nothing to worry about except if you wanna fly planes, you gotta stop toking!
