Legal Answers
30 Questions Answered
Q. Backing out of supermarket stall I bumped into someone behind. There was no damage.The lady said I dont know what to do
A: I recommend that you hire a competent attorney, or, if financial circumstances do not permit that, to apply for the services of a public defender. Depending on how you are charged, this is a matter which could result in the potential for jail time under these facts, possibly up to 10 days! While the imposition of a jail sentence by the court is not likely, there are collateral consequences which could include having points assessed against your license in your new home state, having to pay more for your auto insurance, or, having your carrier dump you as an insured. This is a serious matter worthy of your attention. You have a right to a trial. Even if you elect to forego a trial, and want to “get it over with” a skilled attorney can negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce your charge to something that will not have a dire affect on either your driver’s license or your insurability. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to me. Either way, I wish you the best of luck.
Q. If my friend is gonna get charged with a promoting a detrimental drug but everything was in my truck, if I come
A: Aloha, as you could potentially incriminate yourself and get charged, I would advise you assert your 5th Amendment Right to remain silent. But, if your friend calls you as a witness at trial you should seek the advice of an attorney. I wish you the best of luck.
Q. Is promoting gambling in the second degree a felony in hawaii?
A: It is a misdemeanor. Hawaii Revised Statutes, § 712-1222 (2013 reads as follows: Promoting Gambling In the Second Degree. (1) A person commits the offense of promoting gambling in the second degree if the person knowingly advances or profits from gambling activity. (2) Promoting gambling in the second degree is a misdemeanor. Best of luck.
