Legal Answers
40 Questions Answered
Q. Does the three different good time laws in Maine violate constitutionality and or are they discriminatory!
A: I do not believe these laws have ever been challenged in court. Since good time is determined by the Department of Corrections and not considered part of the sentence but an administrative determination by stature, the Court may not find a constitutional violation in the difference statutes. You should consult with a constitutional law lawyer though to get a more detailed answer and analysis. Thanks
Q. How long can they hold you in a dry tank inside the county jail in New Hampshire?
A: Since she was arrested and being held in a NH jail, NH's rules of procedure and extradition will apply. You will want to consult with a NH lawyer for these questions. I'm only licensed to practice in Maine. In Maine, a person arrested is required to appear before the Court within 48 hours of arrest and a person held in Maine on an out-of-state warrant can be held for 30 days for the extradition. New Hampshire may have similar rules (as most state's do) but you should confirm with a NH lawyer.
Q. I believe my 4th amendment rights were violated as a result of an unlawful search & seizure
A: Any search of the home would require a search warrant supported by probable cause, unless you provided consent to search the home. There may also be a 4th Amendment issue as to whether the police could enter your property to be in the location of where they claim they saw the firearm. Law enforcement are required to provide you Miranda warnings if you're placed under arrest and subject to questioning. If you were arrested and questioned without first waiving your Miranda rights anything you said to law enforcement could be suppressed.
