Q. I have received a notice to appear for a order of harassment. I need help in knowing what to do. I need a lawyer to help
A: Because restraining and harassment prevention orders are civil as opposed to criminal, you are not afforded a public defender, regardless of your financial means. You can view the affidavit your neighbor made at the courthouse (if it is even open). Perhaps the clerk can email or fax you a copy. Most courts are currently conducting only telephonic hearings and otherwise closed to the public. Good luck.
Q. Is it illegal to keep a license plate that isn't yours? My friend found one. (They aren't going to use it to drive.)
A: Finder's keepers, loser's weepers. The law is clear from Missouri to Massachusetts, Texas to Tennessee, No, your "friend" has no duty to turn it in.
Q. I have 2 open cases at court in Somerville , receiving a stolen motor vehicle and 2 counts of larceny over $1200.
A: I agree with attorney Barabino. They only have one chance to revoke your bail, and that’s at the new arraignment. If you have ANY health issues which might put you at risk Of COVID 19 in jail, bring proof to the arraignment. . It might be your only chance.
