Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered
Q. Can I Sue My Childs Mother If I Was Arrested And Injured For Her Frivolous Statement?
A: The short answer is "No." It would be extremely difficult to prove that your child's mother was liable under a recognizable cause of action (lawsuit) and that you sustained damages recoverable under the law.
Q. I was charged with riot 2nd and assault 2nd. I was arrested with no Miranda rights read to me
A: You are charged with very serious felony crimes and need to represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney. That said, the fact that you were not read your Miranda rights will not invalidate your arrest. Miranda rights are necessary if the police question/interrogate you while you are in custody. Again, you should consult with a lawyer.
Q. Are there defenses for the NYC emergency curfew if arrested?
A: Yes there are defenses available to individuals arrested under the curfew. As with any case, the defense would depend on the specific circumstances of your case and arrest. The New York DAs have already indicated an unwillingness to prosecute certain types of cases. However, you should consult with an attorney to review your particular case.
