    20+ mph ticket in Richmond, Virginia

    Nope, you'd just have been charged with a misdemeanor and end up with a life time criminal record if convicted and possibly spend a few days in jail. One of my employees spent four days in the drunk tank in Lowdown county after his (and he had an attorney).

    20+ mph ticket in Richmond, Virginia

    Probalby not. He just gave you a break by not writing you up for reckless. 878 just says munis can set speed limits, so I guess its as good as any. Even if he just wrote "speeding" on it, you'd be found guilty.

    20+ mph ticket in Richmond, Virginia

    $400-450 is pretty much the stock one court appearance fee for traffic issues. It's what they charged my wife. You have plenty of choice. A speeding ticket isn't the end of the world. But the fine/costs could run $500 or so anyhow, so if he can get that waived you might still come out...

    20+ mph ticket in Richmond, Virginia

    Well, your options are then: Pay the ticket (possibly do VADIP to get the points back). Show up in court and ask the judge if you can get deferral for VADIP. Show up in court and take your chances. Understand that at over 20MPH, the cop already gave you a break by not charging you with...

    20+ mph ticket in Richmond, Virginia

    If you were charged with Reckless Driving (as they well could in this circumstance), you'd best contact an attorney. It's possible that it could get reduced to a non-criminal violation or dismissed outright in favor of VADIP or other traffic school. There's NO automatic right. It cost my...

    It's possible this is a lease.

    If a privately sold firearm is used in crime by buyer.....

    Yep, and in states where permits are pertty easy to get, we usually ask to see their permit. It means they've already been vetted by the state as to gun eligibility.

    Cid officer having sex with wife while in detention facility

    I'm betting this is Texas. The prison department is called the Correctional Institutions Division, a different CID.

    Friend on SSI applying for Pandemic Unemployment in California gets $9500

    It's more than just the asset limit, the mere receipt of the income is going to wipe out the benefits for a time. Unemployment benefits are income as far as SSI goes. Medicaid is specifically excluded from being affected by the PUC (but that's a different payment than the PUA). PUC is...

    Friend on SSI applying for Pandemic Unemployment in California gets $9500

    Really? while being elgible for SSI automatically qualifies you for Medi-Cal, the disability and a poverty-level income (I don't think the PUA payments are going to be high enough) aren't going to disqualify him.

    Friend on SSI applying for Pandemic Unemployment in California gets $9500

    My sense is that because of his disability and other reasons, he's not supposed to be eligible. If he lies about his disability status, etc.. he might find the government trying to claw back the funds from him when they end up cross-referencing the payment records. He may be in for big...

    filing in NYS - will I lose my property in another state or my IRA?

    It's almost certainly fair game for the creditors. Equity in your principal residence is protected under NY and Federal law to various extents, but not places you aren't living.

    filing in NYS - will I lose my property in another state or my IRA?

    It would depend on which form of bankruptcy you are considering. Retirement accounts are usually safe from being used to satisfy our debts. The building lot is usually fair game for liquidation. When you are filing your case, you have to sit down (preferably with an attorney) and decide...

    I stopped on crosswalk (no pedestrians) right before line before intersection on red light with a RLC. Did not past last line that goes into curb part

    The light wasn't green by your own admission. You entered the intersection on a red arrow. About the only thing that might be exculpatory was an argument that the signal wasn't visible, though the person preparing the ticket for filing likely isn't going to see or even care about that.
