Legal Answers
Q. Can You Charge Someone With California Penal Code § 211 PC If They Stole From A Retail Store And It Was Less Than $100.
A: Under California law, Penal Code § 211 PC defines robbery as the felonious taking of personal property in the possession of another, from his person or immediate presence, and against his will, accomplished by means of force or fear. If someone merely stole items from a retail store without using force or fear against another person, it would typically not be charged under § 211 PC; instead, it might be charged as shoplifting under Penal Code § 459.5 PC, especially if the value is less than $950. However, if force or fear was used to take items, even if less than $100, a charge under § 211 PC could technically still be possible.
Q. Bought a 2022 car out of State in VA with 5600 mi. Havng a hard time registering it after 5 months still not registered.
A: I can understand why you're feeling frustrated. It seems like you are facing a bureaucratic delay due to system issues between the CA and VA DMV. During this waiting period, ensure to keep all your documents organized and maintain a record of all the communications with the DMV; you may consider reaching out to them periodically for updates. Given your temporary registration's validity till December 2023, you are legally allowed to use the car; however, pursuing a solution actively can potentially help you avoid future complications.
Q. What are penal code sections 11120-11127?
A: Penal Code sections 11120-11127 pertain to the Department of Justice's processes and guidelines for maintaining criminal record dispositions in California. They detail the responsibilities and requirements both for the Department of Justice and for various reporting agencies, such as courts and law enforcement agencies, in managing and updating criminal history information. This range of codes emphasizes accurate, timely, and complete reporting and handling of criminal records to ensure the integrity and usefulness of the state's criminal history database for purposes including, but not limited to, law enforcement and background checks.
