AskLegal: Justice for all.
Got stopped by a cop at a protest, someone had fingered me for something I hadn't done. Was asked to "hang around" to clear things up. Asked if I was under arrest, and he said I wasn't. Attempted to leave and then got handcuffed and cautioned. Spent the day in a cell. Case was dropped months later.
Was this legal on the police's part? Presuming so, but something felt very off about the situation. Any advice would be appreciated.
Accessory dwelling unit can only be 1200 square feet maximum. Unfinished basement doesn't count. What's to stop a legitimate bedroom being finished downstairs after the inspection and certificate of occupancy has been issued? This would technically make the house more like say 1300 square foot usable space but what are the downsides here once it has been bought off?
this guy I'm friends with had said some awful or gross things about women, justifys it, and sometimes it's about his female friends. I'm sure they have no clue because the things he tells me are so objectifying and gross. could i get into legal trouble by leaking some of the things he said over text to some of his female friends?
Can someone be labeled a pedophile if they are mentally a child or have certain mental disorders? What makes someone a pedophile legally?
So first off, I want to remind that pedophiles are defined on desires, while molesters are defined on actions.
Are there any kinds of mental disorders that one could have that may protect them from being a pedophile? For example: if someone was severely autistic, bipolar, and possibly schizophrenic. Would them having those disorders possibly protect them from being labeled a pedophile?
Also, disregarding those disorders, what factors would have to be checked off for someone to be a pedophile? What kind of evidence would need to be required to say one was a pedophile?
