Legal Answers
Q. If you’ve been charged but not indicted on a crime, does it 180 day rule apply
A: You have 2 questions.

1. There is a Criminal procedure rule whereby if you are arrested, and NOT released on Bail/Bond then the DA has 90 days to get an indictment, or you can get released. If you are arrested, then get out on bail/bond, the DA has 180 days to get an Indictment, or you can have the charges dismissed. However, neither of the above instances ends the case permanently. The DA can come back later in time and re-charge you with a crime. As long as it is within the Statute of Limitations for the crime.

2. Yes & No. The police are supposed to bring a search warrant with them when they execute the same. However, they can secure the place and even begin the search, if they have an electronic copy of the warrant. You are allowed to demand the police to show you the warrant, if they do not, then they need to stop the search and wait until one is provided to you, before they resume the search. Remember, a telephone call can be used for a search warrant. It always depends on the circumstances. ... Read More
Q. My neighbor built a fence on my property. I been there 31 years, him 21. Claim it's his property. What do I do?
A: I would like to know how far his fence encroaches on your land.

The best way to deal with your problem is to get a survey and have the surveyor mark the boundary lines, or hire a lawyer to deal with your neighbor. Then, if his fence is on your land, you should send him a certified letter telling him to remove the fence within 10 days, or you will have it removed at his cost. If that doesn't do it, then you can call the Sheriff to tell him to remove it, or sue him in court for trespass and other causes of action.

I hope this helps.
Q. Should buyer insist that spouse of seller sign on conveyance of non-homestead property?
A: You are not way off-base. I would require a waiver by the wife, proof of a separate property regime by the spouses, or require that the wife sign the deed. While the Title Company is liable if there is a problem later, I would not want to be making a claim later or needing to deal with a legal claim or a lawsuit later.

Why don't they just have the wife sign? What's the problem?

I hope this helps.
