Q: 

How long is TI going to jail for?

A:  One year and a one month. As of of the day he got aressted. one year and one day and the show was to show how he didn''t want kids to do what he did. He has done community service, and the fine is what the above person has said. The only reason I know who TI is is because about 100 people have come here and asked the same questions: "Is TI going to jail? When is TI going to jail? How long is he going to be in jail? What kind of food is he going to get in jail? Will he write more songs in jail?" Haven''t these questions been asked and answered here, repeatedly? I believe the sentence was one year and one day (or three days) and the fine was $100,300. Answering this confirms the fact that I retain totally useless information in my head....

Q: 

At a 4-way stop, for how long must one yield to the right?

A:  I have never heard of any laws for how long you have to wait at a 4-way stop but the only thing that will help now is if you can find a witness that can help support your case.. At a 4 way stop the right of way belongs to the car that arrived first to the intersection, whether on the right, left, front, back... Never to the car on your right. The other guy is obviously stupid. stop overthinking it I hope that you filed a police report stating what you say here. Very well put. The thing is that once you are in an intersection, whether turning or going straight, you have the right of way. Based on where the other driver hit you, it seems that you were already more than half way across the intersection before the...

Q: 

How long to the US keep foreign fingerprints for?

A:  They keep all information forever. Or you can file inder fereedom of information Act to get them back when you leave. Penny how exactly is unacceptable to ask how long MY personal information will be used?!! And to the rest of you. I have travelled for years to many different countries and NO country has ever taken my finger prints. You may not know that being a well known fact that Amercians dont leave their own c The reason you were given attitude or should I say arrogance when you made query--is because the question is unacceptable, it is a breech of security to make such an inquiry. Fingerprints in the U.S--just like in the U.K--are stored forever and you can not retrieve them, so, I guess if you want to think of it as a ''big brother database'' then you are...

Q: 

My PC & USB seized by police - SouthEast UK, (on hearsay of my landlord), how long will it take to get sorted?

A:  You are very much in the hands of the police here. Forensic examination can take up to 18 months and around six months to a year seems to be average in the South East. The delay is just from the backlog of computers and such waiting for examination. If nothing is found then it may be another month or so before the officer involved has time (can be bothered) to let you know it is available for return. If you are lucky and can convince the officer who seized your equipment as to your likely innocence and that you need it for your work, he or she MIGHT ask the forensic lab to prioritise your kit, but I wouldn''t hold my breath. If your accuser suggested you might be involved in terrorist activities then your computer will have gone straight to the top of the list and given the highest...

Q: 

how long in NJ

A:  "How many times will I have to appear In court" We have no possible way of knowing. Probably at least once, and it's unlikely that it would be more than 25 times. "How long does my wife have to a acknowledge the divorce request" If you're talking about responding to the divorce filing, I'm not in NY (or NJ -- your post refers to both states), but it's 20-30 days in most states. "If she does not acknowledge the divorce what could happen?" Anything COULD happen. If she fails to respond within the time provided by law, you can seek judgment by default. "After it been acknowledged, what happens next ?" That's up to you and her (and/or...

Q: 

jury duty - What You Can Expect When You Are Called

A:  If you''ve never been called for jury duty, it can be intimidating to show up on the appointed date and time to a room full of potential jurors. Once you are there, the court personnel will explain their particular process, but in general here is what you can expect. One of first major processes is called voir dire in which prospective jurors are asked about their background and experiences. The attorneys hope to discover jurors with biases which will prevent them from making a fair judgment in the case presented to them. For example, if the case calls for a decision regarding the death penalty, a number of people who feel they cannot make the decision will likely be thanked for their time and sent home. Some questions are more refined,...

Q: 

What Is Grand jury duty?

A:  A grand jury is comprised of a group of randomly chosen citizens whose duty it is to decide whether there is sufficient evidence to indict an individual or corporation on criminal charges.
