Legal Answers
Q. Can I file a complaint and Sue a police officer for not doing there job when some breaks into your home
A: NO!

The police do not have to enforce laws. While it is the job of the police to enforce criminal laws, you can not force them to do so. I know it sounds crazy, but that is the law. The only time a police officer must act, is when a "Special Relationship" has been established.

That is where an officer has actually gotten personally involved in a case and performed more than ministerial duties.
Q. Should my son accept a plea deal or go to jury trial for a disorderly conduct charge for loud music?
A: Does your son have a lawyer?

I would tell my client to go to trial. Jury trial. A vague criminal charge is unlawful and an abuse of police power. The DA must show some kind of standard that the law has set as to the decibel level for loud music to be unlawful. That's why some cities and counties have noise statutes, which all have a written level that is criminal or illegal.

Without a measurable standard, the public has no NOTICE of what is acceptable or illegal.

A good lawyer would file a Motion to quash or dismiss the case as unconstitutional and in violation of the 4th, 5th and 6th Amendments. Make sure his efforts to dampen the sound and his status as a musician is brought out at trial. That is very important.

Get a good lawyer, or come see me or one of the lawyers on Justia ASAP. I feel like there is more to the story on this case.

I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Q. I have an inmate who was dealing with fire ants in her cubicle. The staff at tdcj would not help her fix the issue.
A: Sounds terrible.

All of the issues are part of Administrative process. The inmate has the right to have all of the paperwork and Notice of all the alleged violations by the inmate. You need to get all of those documents and comb through them to see if there really are violations, and whether or not, the rules were followed by the Warden and his/her officers. This is what must be pointed-out at any hearing. Patience and details are very important.

Be sure that if there are documents, or objections that must be filed by the inmate, that they are properly and timely filed.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck!
