Q: 

I got a ticket for going 90 in a 55. I do have to make an appearance in court, what will most likely happen?

A:  Because of your obvious disregard for the safety and well-being of others, I personally hope they nail you to the wall. I think they cut off yer legs and feed the rest of you to the alligators.....but that''s just a rumor! At thirty five MPH over, you might be charged with Reckless Driving, depending on your driving record and the mood of the Judge. well you will probably have to pay a big fine and get a couple points on your license if its your first time and depending on how many points you already have on your license they might take it away if you exceed the limit of points. Florida is very tough on speeders, especially someone going as fast as you were. What in God''s name were you thinking ? You had no regard for other drivers or anyone but yourself. I would count on losing your...

Q: 

What will most likely happen ? I got charged with violation of a domestic restraining order in wisconsin. I called my ex wife to set up visitation of my daughter and she called and reported it. The DA is taking me to court. I have no criminal record.

A:  I would think that depends on the wording of the restraining order and the WI law. If it prohibits phone calls, you are in trouble, if not, I would wonder what your Ex has up her sleeve. Do you think the state will give me a ticket / probation etc ? Follow the rules, but never give up on your kid. Explain that was not intentional... you just missed your kid. Lets just say if I do get in trouble. The most likely outcome ? I like to see things in the worst light... its a habbit from her :/ I can see why shes your ex wife. Sorry chap....

Q: 

If a few of my friends are at a ecstasy party (everyone is on it) and someone gets really hurt or even dies because of it, can we all get into trouble? what will most likely happen?

A:  Where several people are involved in something which is illegal, like everyone at a party taking a controlled substance such as ecstasy, and one of the persons is injured or killed at the party, several forms of liability may arise, including both criminal and civil liability. From a criminal standpoint, the person or persons who supplied the drugs would be implicated (see more on penalties for selling drugs like Ecstasy). Also, if the other participants knew that the injured person was at risk or was having a medical reaction to the drug and took no action to help the person, they might be criminally negligent. Arizona has a misdemeanor manslaughter rule which says that if one or more persons are committing a crime and someone gets killed, those persons may be charged with manslaughter...

Q: 

Second offense shoplifting, what is going to happen in court?

A:  probation..it is shame I''d hate to tell you this man but your kinda screwed. Though the felony you committed may have been considered a petty crime its still a felony and it WILL be with you the rest of your life. I''m pretty sure you''ll just have to pay another fine and possibly be put on work crew or probation, more than likely probation because this is your second offense and its a felony. Hope this helped. P.S. Hey man you live in california, why not stick to something safer and much much more legal like weed? i live in oregon and its decriminalized i got caught with 27 grams and all i got was a $500 dollar fine that translated into about 5 days of work crew. Have you truly learned your lesson? You not only commited a crime once, but twice..now you''re...

Q: 

Second offense shoplifting, what is going to happen in court?

A:  Hopefully, you''ll be getting some jail time. Why are you hanging around ''friends'' that steal? Why aren''t you making better decisions? You were created with the same organs as every other Human Being on Earth. Use your brain to make better decisions. A quick Google search turns up this information, and it''s my estimate that you will be hit with an infraction, if the prosecuter feels like you are truly remoresful. Petty theft involves the taking of property whose value is less than $400. If you are charged and convicted of misdemeanor petty theft, you may be sentenced to up to 6 months in jail and fines ranging from $50- $1,000. If the value of the property taken is less than $50, you may be charged with a simple infraction. An infraction is less in severity than a misdemeanor and the...

Q: 

are the only attorneys here prosecutors

A:  It isn't a question of the people who respond to the requests for help all being prosecutors. Some aren't lawyers at all just very experienced and smart about the law. No one here gives advice on what to do specifically related to the circumstances outlined in the original post, it violates the terms of service. Most often the only advice given is 1) don't talk to the police voluntarily, 2) get a lawyer and 3) where to turn for help (i.e. websites with information etc.). The typical post asks "what will most likely happen under my circumstances and do you have any recommendations?" The answers are reality based. As in:...

Q: 

What should I do about me and someone else...?

A:  What would most likely happen is that you''d be disappointed. What you''ve created with him is an exciting refuge from your life, where you feel like you can actually live a fantasy. And you don''t have to deal with any of the problems of real life. You may not realize it, but by discussing your intimate problems and hopes and values, you''ve opened a big door that you feelings will inevitably fall into. For a healthy relationship, you should be doing that with the person to whom you are committed. Then you would have been building those feelings inside your relationship, where there is a real basis for them. The person that you''ve done this with only seems perfect because that is the only energy you''ve shared with them. As soon as it...
