Legal Answers
756 Questions Answered
Q. What happens if you defend yourself with an illegal gun?
A: If a prosecutor charges a person with two different types of crimes: e.g., assault and illegal gun possession, the defendant might raise a defense of self-defense to the assault charge. But that defense would not apply to an illegal gun possession criminal charge. As for a prosecuting attorney's initial charging decision, that would be up to the discretion of the prosecutor, based on the information they think they have.
Q. GM 5th deg-possession of drug, first timer, and I was wondering if I’m serving jail time or how much would I have to pay
A: You might consider an effort to avoid a criminal "conviction." That would be valuable, in the future. It may be a possible to resolve the case in a way to avoid conviction, usually involving a period of compliance with agreed and ordered conditions. You can discuss this with your lawyer.
Q. License suspension from speeding tickets?
A: The answer is in Minnesota Rules 7409.2200 HABITUAL VIOLATORS, available online. (For those with a Minnesota Driver's License, at least.) Four petty misd. traffic offenses within a 12-month period; or five traffic within a 24-month period will get a DL suspension. The rule is more complex than that, however, so so it's a good idea to read it.
