Q. What happens if a woman I friended on Facebook sent pictures of a minor to me but I didn't ask for the picture?
A: I’m going to assume that these pictures were illicit? I don’t have enough facts to give you confident guidance or counsel, however, it’s unusual when someone that you friend on a tool like Facebook would send you unsolicited inappropriate sexual pictures of a minor child out of the blue. You need to make certain you didn’t acquiesce or seek out such content as that would be inappropriate and potentially a criminal act. If it’s completely unsolicited and you did not know what you were getting ready to view when you opened up the image your message, you’re likely completely fine up to that point. If, however, you viewed it and shared it, that is a very serious felony charge under both state and federal statutes (Distribution of Child Pornography likely would be the charge). Sounds like you handled it properly if it was unsolicited and you should be fine.
Q. Can you explain the Daubert hearing.
A: A Daubert hearing, to describe it simply, is a pre-trial hearing that is usually brought about by the filing of a “motion in limine” which is a motion filed by one party in an attempt to exclude the expert witness testimony or evidence of the opposing party in a trial. In the hearing, essentially the judge is trying to determine whether the methodology of the expert opinion rises to the level of admissible expert evidence. More simply put, does the trier of fact which is the jury normally, really need this expert to explain the topic he is attempting to give expert testimony related to, or is it something that the jury should be able to figure out without the expert witness and or his report. It is not unusual for one or both sides in a court case to employ an expert to try and give an opinion which is usually a prepared report as well as expert witness’s testimony. A Judge will often times not hesitate to exclude the offered expert testimony if he believes it is unnecessary under the facts of the case or that the jury does not need assistance in that area.
Q. Can a plaintiff violate their own protection order if the defendant has not been served
A: The question is a bit confusing, but if a protective order has been issued against a party, the only one prohibited from certain acts is the defendant or the party served with that protective order. If the plaintiff seeking the protective order, the one who secured it from the court, contacts that defendant… that is certainly meaningful evidence or information that the defendant could use at the protective order hearing to demonstrate that the Plaintiff is not in fear of any alleged threat of imminent harm. However, it is not a violation because they have no protective order issued against them. You should consult an attorney who specializes in emergency protective orders for more detailed guidance. Best of luck!
