Legal Answers
Q. My husband was arrested and is now at Rikers Island In New York State. He was never read his Miranda Rights.
A: If that is the case, and it can be proven or argued , it would go to surpressing any statements (keeping those statements out of evidence and not used against him) he made and be argued in legal docs called motions. Depending on the case, one can still be convicted without their own statements etc but it may be a path towards his acquittal or a favorable plea. However, it should be noted its difficult but not impossible to prove as its the officers word and the defendant rarely if ever testifies. Certainly the defendant doesn't testify at the hearing on this.
Q. Is getting a tenant to sign something acknowledging that their residence not a legal unit a good idea?
A: Hire an attorney as there may be multiple considerations civilly and criminally.
Q. If I take out an order of protection against my ex, who is an attorney, will he get disbarred?
A: If he's arrested and its a criminal full order of protection , the arrest and charges can get him potentially disbarred depending on the facts. A family law case rarely does. However, most would tell you if you are fearful of harm contact the police/911.
