    6 hrs ago | via People 

    After filing a lawsuit against a Texas trooper, the sheriff's office and two guards at the jail where Sandra Bland was found dead three days after a traffic stop, Bland's mother conceded at a news conference on Tuesday that it's "possible" her daughter had committed suicide , as a medical examiner ruled. Bland's family has previously challenged that conclusion, and in the federal lawsuit filed in Houston, accused Trooper Brian Encinia of "wanton conduct" and assault that violated Bland's constitutional rights.

    Tuesday Jul 21 | via WTKR-TV Norfolk 

    While the jailhouse death of Sandra Bland is being handled in the manner of a murder investigation, authorities in Texas initially said the 28-year-old woman appeared to have killed herself. But why would a young woman who just landed a new job at her alma mater take her own life? Why would someone who family and friends say had so much to look forward to hang herself with a noose fashioned from a trash bag? Here's what we know about Bland's death in a cell at the Waller County jail in Hempstead following a routine traffic stop on July 10: Bland was taking a new job at Prairie View A&M University in Texas, more than 1,000 miles from her home in the Chicago suburb of Naperville, Illinois.

Naperville Law

What will likely be my punishment for receiving a MIP and drunk/ disorderly persons arrest in Allegan County Michigan?
Over the weekend, my boyfriend was arrested for a DUI and I was arrested for minor in possession of alcohol and drunk/disorderly person. I spent about 15 hours in jail and my car was towed because my boyfriend was driving it. I blew a .350 and I gave the officers a lot of attitude in my drunken stupor. I am wondering what will most likely be my punishment with an experienced lawyer, and if I should plead guilty or not guilty.
Thank you for your questions. You have multiple charges. You are already in trouble now you have to ask whether you are...

You should do nothing. Your boyfriend needs a lawyer.
Problem w current Iowa lawyer
I was in an accident a few years ago to which I walked out of to the nearest gas station and called the police. They came tried to give me breathalyzer I was from out of state so I denyed to blow but had to go in ambulance because I had fractured my neck. Cops still gave me ticket so I went to lawyer gave to him he told me a couple weeks later that I'd lose my license for a year and then get it back. Turns out guy never went to my court day 2 years ago. Now I have warrant in that city that I do not live in anymore. I've Got everything documented in email with this guy and he is always dodgy. It's been two weeks now, I want to have my issue resolved but I feel like my lawyer just digging me into a deeper hole. Am I wrong here or is this how law works?
It sounds like you need a new lawyer. While you may have legitimate complaints about the "dodgy" lawyer, he won't be...
Looking for case law on MISDEMEANOR discovery of dash cam & police reports. Charges: accident, hit/run, & DUI. Naperville Ill.
My son refused to blow. The discovery dash cam video shows ONLY HIS FST. He did fairly poor on the FST. A long explanation, but a full dash cam would likely aid the hit/run defense as son was on the scene with his car when the police arrived. The other driver did not speak English, 3 squads, 4 witnesses, 4 officers & lots of confusion that would likely be cleared up by a full video. As of today, we don't know if the entire videos were not given at discovery or if they don't exist resulting from the officers only activating for FST. I already have rule 411, Kladis, law on State Police cams, Webster, Strobel, & Schmidt. Looking for: case law dealing with officers obligation to turn video on (i.e. "cherry picking the use of video") and case law supporting motion for extra discovery. Thanks
Don't try to act as your own attorney! Contact an experienced DUI attorney in Ill to represent you ASAP.
First time DUI in Dupage County. Received BAIID and 1 yr suspension for refusing to blow. Early reinstatement hearing possible?
Only 1 speeding ticket on record 3 years ago. Completed all court requirements. Is it possible to have hearing with SOS for removal of BAIID before the 1 year summary suspension is up in Illinois? What are chances of winning hearing?
The only way to end a suspension early is to get it rescinded in court - apparently your lawyer did not do that.
Can't pay dui fines!!
Got two dui's close together served some jail time and got two years probation..I will have all classes ect by the time I go back to court to wrap everything up. The thing is I'm unsure if I'll be able to pay the full $4500 by my last court date...I don't want to go back to jail. What will happen if I can't pay? Dui's are out of Wheaton Illinois and Naperville Illinois.
when you return to court, preferably with your lawyer, you will show what efforts you have made to get the fines paid...
