    Traffic Violation

    Oregon's policy on photo radar citations "...officer will cause notification of citation delivered." Plainly stated, they mail it USPS. I'll skip my legal argument and just say I don't except mail from government agencies without service. So having no knowledge of an alledged traffic violation & no notice of trial, a judicial decision was made, finding me guilty. I believe I can prove deprivation of due process. Where and how do I do that. Do I file a civil action against the State? District court? Appellate court?
  2. Need some input. My girlfriend of a couple of years is a sophomore in college and everytime I've seen her this year she has been drunk or stoned or high on something ...not only that but I just found out that she has been having sex with a couple or several different men in their 40's and 50's. who are paying her for sex. I am completely numb over this and told her that I was all done and that she needed to immediately stop being a prostitute and stop her drinking and drugging and get into rehab or I was going to go to her parents and tell them everything I knew ...also she told me that she was depressed and had had some thoughts of suicide. I want my girlfriend back and don't want to share her with anyone but I was told if I told her parents what she was doing or threatened to tell them that I could be the one charged with a felony in Oregon for coercion? AYFKM? She can always choose to stop acting crazy on her own and stop what she's doing so things can get back to normal. Aside from obviously benefiting from having her fix this on her own and coming back to me, if she doesn't, and I don't tell someone and something happens to her that would be devastating. How can protected speech (telling her parents) become a felony ? and is my friend correct?
  3. Before me and my boyfriend broke up I was going to buy a square body, I just had to wait a couple more weeks till I had the full amount. He kept insisting on helping me pay for it and I told him no 5 times. Finally I said fine, so he helped me purchase the truck, I put in on my own insurance, I have a bill of sale made out to me, I have the title and the truck. The title isn’t in either of our names. We broke up and he’s now trying to take the truck. I told him I’d pay him back but I told his dad over text messages that I’d either pay him back the $1,200 or give him the truck back by the 11th or this month. He’s now taking me to court over it saying it’s his truck, not mine. What do I do and is he right about it being his truck even though I have the title, bill of sale made out to myself, have proof of insurance that I paid for on my own insurance and I have the truck.

    Gaining Custody

    My daughter has two young(9, 12, & 15) girls living at her home. They are sisters, and the daughters of a long time friend. There is no formal relationship with the parents. The parents have a number of issues. The father has been charged with several sex crimes like "luring a minor”, and is awaiting trial. He likely will be incarcerated for 3-5 years. The mother takes over the counter drugs on a daily basis to get high. She has been convicted of DUI for drug impaired driving and is tested weekly for drugs. She is careful to not use illegal drugs or drugs that she doesn't have a prescription for. She gets high on cough syrup and other over the counter substances. The parents have a home where the children have previously lived. The home has been described using the term “squalor”…..dog feces on the floor, unkept, non-working systems, etc, etc. The mother sees/takes the kids sporadically for short periods of time.....a few hours once or twice a week. The parents income consists of the father's unemployment compensation(will terminate on incarceration), donations from their church, and social security income from a resident grandparent. My daughter has had the 3 children living at her home for the last 5 months and pays all expense and provides all care. She has an Oregon DHS case worker that has not provided much help. DHS has told her as long as the parents provide a roof over their heads and peanut butter and jelly in the refrigerator, there is not much they can do. And, they(DHS) cannot provide any financial support unless my daughter has legal custody. Conversations with other parents, friends, and have indicated that terminating parental rights to gain custody has a high legal threshold and can only be successful with the most egregious behavior by the parents. My daughter is willing to care for the children on a permanent basis but she needs some kind of custodial rights and, some financial support from DHS. The parents have been unwilling to sign any kind of legal agreement to this end and continue to believe their ability to care for the children will improve with time. What can my daughter PRACTICALLY do? She has no rights and no financial support over/for these children.

    Bereavement Leave

    My father passed away in May. His memorial service is in July. I know Oregon has Bereavement Leave offered by most employers, but I'm curious if my boyfriend is someone that is covered to attend the service without being reprimanded by his employer. We are not married, but we have been together for a couple years, and he plays an active role with my son and my entire family. Would this situation qualify as a "domestic partner"? Thanks in advance.

    I am installing a fence about 6 inches into my property line. There is a tree in the way which is on my property. I have reached the tree with the fence. How do I proceed now?
  7. We took a 1994 Toyota Camry into get repaired it was slipping from the 2 gear to the 3rd gear. They said they could fix the car so we left it. The dealership did not offer a rental, they had our car for a month and a half.! also they did not give estimate or fix it, it was the same as when we brought it into them. They put a couple parts on but didn;t need them. The dealership charged us a total of 1349.00 for pretty much nothing. We sued and lost!!! What to do now??? Thank You, Can we sue them again? Our first time sueing anyone; I think we flopped , We needed the speed sensor repaired

    My Ex Finally learned his ABC"S

    Well, my ex finally did it. finally got caught doin something he couldn't run away from or use his silver tongue to get out of. He's on his way to learning his ABC's. Felony class A, Felony Class B, and Felony class C, and 6 class A misdemeanours.. 6 counts of sexual abuse in the 3rd degree, 1 count sexual abuse in the 2nd degree,1 count sexual abuse in the 1st degree, and 1 count sexual penetration in the 1st degree. My Question is how much jail time could some one facing those kinds of charges be facing? And how did he get so lucky sorta? cxCuzuz I know he had to of done it more times than he's bein charged with. i'm going to file for sole custody of my kids. I'm going to try temporary post- judgement custody and Parenting time "immediate Danger" and kinda see what happens from there. ugh someday when i finish my degree i will be able to answer most of these questions myself. but any knowledgable and or inquisitive comments would be more than welcome.
  10. I'm a 21 year old female from Oregon and an honors graduate. I never imagined myself where I'm at right now and I really need some help. I have never been in legal trouble before and therefore have little knowledge in the nature of such a complex, dynamic bitch we call the system. Therefore I need your help and guidance. Any direction at all is appreciated. Here is my story.. Late March I was traveling 160 miles down the coast with all my belongings in the car packed tightly, ready to settle in Portland, OR to start a new chapter in life. I had a friend in the surrounding area and when they heard I was heading that direction they asked if I could pick them up and give them a ride because home was in the direction I was heading through Oregon. I accepted and on arrival my friend pointed out how exhausted I looked and insisted I let them drive. When asked they claimed to have their license, of course this was BS and my habit of wanting to believe others value peoples lives as much as I do buries me again. I allowed him to drive and as we headed down I5 a West Linn police officer coming from the other direction did a U-turn and pulled us over for the headlights being on (no this was not my friend setting me up and yes the highbeams were intended to be on due to one of my headlights suddenly going out and me improvising and not wanting to get pulled over). The officer approached the vehicle and told us about the highbeams and claiming that to be the reason for the stop, and didn't ask but more so confirmed with the guy driving that he was not licensed. Before walking away he stated that he also ran the plates and saw my Jeep wasn't insured. This is when I piped up from the passenger seat and said in the recent months I went from a 6 month policy to a month to month basis on my dads insurance and I couldn't imagine him not notifying me if something as crucial as my insurance being cut off happened, but apologized and said I would communicate with my dad and correct this before I got on the road again. I had showed him my old paper from 3 months prior showing the 6 month policy to back up part of what I was saying. He walked away and minutes later appeared on my side of the car, asking that I step out and talk to him. I ignorantly did so and was bombarded with questions such as "are there any drugs in the car, do you or your friend do drugs, is that your boyfriend", etc. When asked I told him there absolutely was not any drugs in the car and admitted to once having a prescription pain medication addiction, sharing my views on what toxicity drug addiction can bring in ones life and how my reason for moving to the area was partly to do with wanting to be away from the same surrounding that I was in during such a dark time. He asked the last time I took pills and I told him it had been months, that I had finally conquered my pill addiction. This was true, not that it matters. He asked for permission to search my vehicle. I denied this request but told him "I'm not sure the correct terminology you guys use but you may do the search procedure where you walk around my car and look in all the windows". He replied with "Well if there's no drugs in the car why won't you give me consent?". I told him the car had all my belongings packed tightly inside, it was unnecessary to tear it all apart. Immediately after saying this he tells me to turn around and says false claim of liability insurance is a misdemeanor and for that reason he handcuffs me and detains me in the back of the car. I watch through the windshield as my friend is pulled outside the vehicle and the officer begins searching through my car, so intensely in fact that I watched my stuff fly through the air and land in the dirt. Another officer shows up and before I know it there is 6 police at the scene and my car is being towed. Inside my purse in the car a pouch was containing drugs was found. Heroin, Meth, and a prescription bottle of 15mg Oxycodone. This prescription belonged to the guy with me and was something I was asked to pick up in my hometown before leaving because usually he traveled there once a month to see his doctor and get his pills, due to him not coming to town that month he asked me to pick up the paper script (if you are put on a list you can do something like this for someone) and fill it at the pharmacy so I could bring them to him when I traveled his way. I had this bottle in a zebra print pouch I threw in my purse to head up there and had handed this to him on arrival. The police informed me an array of drugs were found inside a zebra print zipper pouch in my purse. I quickly figure out a few more items had been added to a pouch that once contained just his medicine and was thrown in my purse when I was pulled aside from my vehicle. THIS IS SOMETHING I STILL HAVE NOT CLAIMED TO HAVE BEEN THE CASE. I had several thoughts run through my head when I was told what was found, including making the excuse for him that maybe he had these things were in his pocket and he removed them in fear that they would pull him out and search his pockets due to his record and him being the driver. Not thinking it would be bad on me. Despite his name being on the script my fingerprints were on the bottle and probably not his. I didnt know what else was added to the bag exactly but what I did know was that these things were found in my purse and it looked bad on me at that moment. Either way I'm a fairly smart girl and am usually pretty quick to think of many variables on the spot. I didn't say much at all after that point because I wasn't sure what to do, but I did explain to them I was allowed to pick up his prescription and that could be verified with his doctors office, which apparently my friend had said too. They refused to believe us, saying him and I were lying and it wasn't helping anyone. They told me I was being charged with PCS and DCS of Oxycodone (DCS for finding baggies in the pouch), PCS of heroin, PCS of meth, and false claim of liability insurance to a police officer. They were going to give my friend the same charges except for the insurance one. During the arrest they offered both of us the chance to be freed of some or all of the charges in exchange of doing 3 controlled buys. I declined their offer immediately while my friend accepted. I was taken to jail and held for 12 hours before being released due to overcrowding. I had no clue where I was and had no phone because they took mine out of my purse and kept it, which was nowhere on my item inventory list. I was able to get a cab to the place my car was impounded and luckily was able to borrow the portion of the $375 it cost to get out I couldnt cover. The police kept my old insurance paper on top of everything and I had to spend half the day at the tow yard until I had my brother back home 150 miles away break open my safe and take a picture of a document tying my name to the car to get them to release it to me. I found seeral of priceless antiques and other things damaged from this search. The following month at the arraignment, my friend and I were scheduled for court the same day as you could guess. The D.A. dropped his case and all charges completely, while all mine remained. It is obvious he agreed to testify against me, although he denies it to the end. The trial date was set for the following month and was around 4th of July, traffic was so heavy I was at a stop on the freeway many times. I called the courthouse and asked I be put at the end of the docket and explained why I would be a little late. When I arrived I was directed to courtroom 5 where when I entered there was one lady on a computer. I was asked my name and she told me I hadn't even been on the docket that day because a disposition had never been filed on me. I was told to confirm my address with the D.A.'s office and that they could pick my case back up anytime in the next 2 years. 2 and a half weeks later while at my friends house in my hometown, the police had been in the area and had saw my car outside so they came to the door to arrest me for a "failure to appear". I spent just under 3 days in Florence jail, where it was the absolute worst. There was hardly ever an officer there to check on the inmates and I spent the first 24 hours broken out in hives miserable with an allergic reaction due to my allergy to tags on clothing and the jumpsuit material that made it act up. There was nobody there from the time lunch was served until a late dinner finally came on my second day when after I ate lunch I had my toilet get backed up and water pour out everywhere, getting my blankets wet and the bottom of my pants on the jumpsuit (which I was already wearing only halfway on due to the tag causing an allergic reaction). I sat in the cell freezing cold with no blankets and water all over the floor for around 5-6 hours before the sergeant finally showed up with other officers and had immediately checked on me, shocked and appauled by what he found. I was practically happy the next night when I was finally moved to Lane county for 24 hours, and from there I spent 4 days in Clackamas county until I was released last Wednesday after being matrixed out, once again for overcrowding. Between what I believe was improper search of my car, the fact stuff was found in a separate container (my purse) which was also in a separate container which constitutes special warrants, the false arrest for failure to appear, and the foul and dehumanizing treatment in Florence jail don't I have something to work with? Please help, I realize this was ridiculously long but my story has many angles and I want all the help I can get. Thank you
  11. I am a 25% owner of my late parents estate and I am currently living in the house. The administration of the trust has been given to a third party and they are giving me 30 days to leave. I am willing to leave but would rather stay until the property sells. Does the third party have the right to evict me without the consent of the other trustees. At least two out of the other three won't make me leave before the sale of the property.

    I am looking to see how frequently people in the western states receive some form of clemency. I am applying soon, and hope that someone can help give me some info on what might help my petition out, in terms of what I could include in that packet. Thanks!

    911 Calls

    Can a 911 call be admissible in court as evidence? If so, why would a prosecutor withhold such evidence?
  16. My friend is currently in jail looking at 36 months in prison due to getting arrested 2 months ago for absconding. His parole officer is a joke, and everyone who's been involved with her will tell you just that. She's known for having a serious lack of communication and treating people shes assigned to like garbage, especially ones with drug charges. She put a warrant out for his arrest, claiming he had been absconding for 2 years. The police arrested him after seeing him in my car and running his name. The distasteful, corrupt manner they demonstrated during this arrest was the most dysfunctional dirty police work I ever thought I'd witness. It went from the two cops being there and him in the middle of having a calm conversation with an officer through the window to one of the 4 others that pulled up ripping the back door open and trying to violently grab him suddenly. He had his hands in the air and was complying completely, yet all 6 police drew their guns and tasers and yelled "quit resisting", even when he was on his knees in the gravel following their commands they shoot him with the taser. Anyways! That is a whole other ordeal. However they searched my whole car after taking him out and found a backpack with meth inside. Hes now being charged with distribution too. There was a similar situation less than a year ago when police saw him and found he had a warrant for absconding when he had gone 4 months without talking to his P.O. He wasn't taken to jail but was just assigned a court date. I witnessed several times that he tried calling her office, left messages, etc. No call back or attempt to contact him yet she puts a warrant out.. Following this first incident a court date was set and a fire was lit under her ass where she was forced into meeting with him. I drove him to her office and met her myself. I've wrote a statement and faxed it to the head of Parole and Probation saying everything I know first hand. Tell me, if this is something he was dealing with less than a year ago, how is it he's been absconding for two years? She was probably asked what was going on with him and when she had nothing to say she once again blamed him and made a false accusation and another warrant followed. Please help! Who can I talk to that I havent already? This should be easily proven wrong yet it's like the whole ****ed up law family works together to keep things screwed up.

    Just Curious

    Any possible reasons why the county of a particular state would deny an inmate his legal work when he was sent back to county on appeal?
  18. Wanderland

    Is this a PCR Issue?

    Would being forced by the court to be represented by an attorney who the defendant had a conflict of interest with be a post conviction issue?

    Who was in the Wrong?

    My boyfriend ( who is incarcerated in Oregon ) was told by his appellate attorney that the transcript of the first trial would not be used in the second trial because it would violate his due process rights. However, in his second trial, they did end up using that transcript against him and decided to uphold his conviction. What I would like to know is who would be in the wrong? The attorney or the court? If the attorney was wrong, would that be grounds of improper counseling for a post conviction case? Thank you for responding.

    Grandmothers Will

    I was told that there was a "Will" done years ago before my grandfather had passed away & my uncle told me that my grandmother could of redone the "Will" after the passing of my grandmother. My grandmother passed away years ago and I had tried to find out where the "Will" might be but was told by my uncle he was not sure where this "Will" is. After that conversation with my uncle he avoids running my calls, siblings and other family members calls it's like he is completely avoiding the whole family all together. So right now I am just trying to find this "Will" and it should of been registered in Tillamook county she lived in Manzanita, Oregon. Thank you! Oregongrl
  21. Why is it I cannot hold these medical professionals, responsible for their failure to diagnose and treat me for a parasite infection. I have gone too, two emergency rooms, and two different Physicians in clinics, with no help at all. I can't get a referral to a infectious disease Dr. Because the regular doctors look at me like I'm crazy I have brought stool samples of my own, they clearly show parasites, but the doctors don't even get close to plastic bags I bring. The doctors make me feel humiliated, and ashamed and it is not my fault. They have never taken blood, but there is a test, even the CDC is aware of that will show the presence of parasites,yet the doctors tell me there is no blood test. They have taken stool samples, but they order the wrong test. I have suggested to them the correct test that has to be taken oftentimes at least three times with different stool and they just ignore me. The type of parasites that I have are clearly visible, but I cannot get the Dr. to actually look. My boyfriend's Dr. Did look but he immediately said that the worms were not worms they were food. He did give my boyfriend and referral, but the infectious disease Dr. Instructed me to e-mail the picture that you see here, and his reply e-mail which I have, says they are not worms and worms cannot live in humans for more than two days. This was an infectious disease Dr. Folks. I have had a natural path Dr. and a veterinarian look at the same pictures and say they are indeed parasites. So if an infectious disease Dr. Can diagnose over the Internet of the picture and his colleagues can concur, resulting in once again getting no treatment, why are they not held responsible for being wrong. When I do get the proper diagnosis why can't they be sued? Why does a lab get away with messy work mishandling and losing specimens? Why can't I find an Atty. Why does someone have to be sick on their deathbed? How is it the doctors get away with this? I am not crazy I know what I have and their killing me, I have $500 to pay an Atty. yet I can't find one to take my case because there's not enough money in it. The emotional toil that I have been going through alone should be compensated. Wider doctors and attorneys get to set minimums before you can even get any help, Parasites were very prevalent in Americans not too many years ago. They mass treated the schools and children. Well guess what these worms are immune to meds that they formerly prescribed, a pandemic will have to start before I give any help. The labs were careless they mishandled specimens the doctors didn't do their jobs they need to be sued,
  22. We bought a manufactured home and have our handy man handling repairs such as painting, replacing worn siding, and dry wall. A resident in the park spoke with the handyman and got his business card, upon seeing that there was no CCB# the guy flipped out and threatend to report to the building authorities. Is it a requirement that licensed contractors do property repairs?
  23. Hi, My step daughter got a part time job working at American Eagle. She worked there for a short period of time before they stopped putting her on the schedule but was not told as to why she wasn't on the schedule. Thus went on for 2 -3 weeks. Howwever, today she finds out that she is no longer employed at the store. She was not told about being laid off or fired. It seems to me that they should have told her she was fired so she could seek employment else where but not has suffered an income lost and will need to find another job elsewhere. Does she have a case here? Can she seek compensation until she finds another job?
  24. Hi, In Oregon, I'm told that I have to pay child support for 4 kids in the amoutn of $680/month. I have no problem paying this amount. However, I have one child that is now 21 (not going to college) and another that is 19 and is going to college. The other are 15 and 12. I'm told that I have to continue to pay $680/month until my last child is 21 and/or not going to college. Why doesn't the amount get adjusted as the children become of age (21) or 18 if they are not going to college? Is this correct? Because when I read the child support documents and Oregon Law, I can not find anything suggesting that child support payments will stay the same... Thanks

    Lien without judgement

    We recently purchased 50% interest in a property we are preparing to sell. However the other owner changed her mind and now refuses to sell. To further complicate matters, she placed a lien on the property claiming for the mortgage payments she made to save it from foreclosure the first time. There was no judgement from the court authorizing her lien. How do I get it removed? Can I sue her?
