Legal Answers
Q. Can a person under 13 yrs of age be charged with a crime in MS? Specifically a felony.
A: It really depends. Typically, a minor can be charged with a felony, but where they end up depends on what the underlying crime is. If it is non-violent, the minor will typically go to youth court; however, if it is a violent crime, it will typically go to circuit court. Regardless, assuming that there is a defense attorney involved, the lawyer should do everything they can to either keep it in youth court or get it sent back to youth court.
Q. My boyfriend was arrested in November of 2020 and remains incarcerated at the pike county jail. He has not been indicted
A: It really depends on a few things, such as whether your boyfriend was already out on bond when he got arrested, what was the nature of the underlying charge, etc. Regardless, unless it is a capital offense or he was already out on bond, he should be entitled to pretrial release. That being said, if enough time goes by, he may also have a viable motion for dismissal based on a lack of speedy trial
Q. Is it ok for my neighbor to leave his dogs loose all day everyday even when he Is away from the house because his dog
A: Likely not. If he is allowing the dog to get out and the dog bites someone, especially after having already shown a propensity for viciousness, then he could be found liable for any harm that the dog causes. It sounds like it might be worth it for you to talk to a lawyer about, especially if the dog has bitten someone you know.
