Can felons obtain a dealers license ca?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

In California, felons can obtain a dealer's license under certain circumstances. The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may deny or revoke a dealer's license if the applicant has been convicted of a felony involving fraud, violence, or vehicle-related crimes. However, each case is evaluated on its own merits, and the DMV takes into consideration factors like the time that has passed since the conviction and the applicant's rehabilitation efforts.

Asked by Kstukess

A probation period is a designated period of time at the start of employment during which the employee's performance and suitability for the job are closely monitored and evaluated. It allows employers to assess the employee's skills, work ethic, and fit within the company before making a long-term commitment. During this period, either the employer or the employee may terminate the employment contract without notice.

Paying court fines late can be considered a probation violation, depending on the terms of the probation. If the payment of fines is a requirement of the probation and there is a specified deadline for payment, not adhering to that deadline can be seen as a violation of the terms. However, specific circumstances and jurisdictional regulations may vary.

If a probation officer is not enforcing a court order, the individual can try the following steps:

  1. Document the instances where the probation officer is not following the court order, noting dates, times, and specific details.
  2. Report the issue to a supervisor or higher-ranking officer within the probation department, providing the documented evidence.

Would the abolition of parole lead to a greater use of probation?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is possible that the abolition of parole could lead to a greater use of probation as an alternative to incarceration. Without the option of parole, probation could be seen as a more lenient option for non-violent offenders, allowing them to serve their sentences in the community under supervision. However, the actual impact would depend on various factors, including legal and policy changes, and the overall philosophy and approach of the criminal justice system in a given jurisdiction.

If you drink two 24 oz cans of beer one at 4pm other at 7pm would you pass a urine test for alcohol at 10 am the next day?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on various factors such as your metabolism, body weight, and the alcohol content of the beer. However, in general, consuming two 24 oz cans of beer within a few hours could potentially result in a positive urine test for alcohol the next morning. It is always best to allow ample time for your body to metabolize the alcohol before taking any alcohol tests.

Can a convicted felon bow hunt in Texas?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is a federal offense for a convicted felon to own or POSSESS firearms anywhere, under ANY circumstances. (USC, Title 18) Being "around" or hunting "with" persons carrying firearms puts him in "constructive" possession of a firearm. Ask yourself, 'Would a "reasonable" person believe that someone went out in the field hunting with others even though he had no weapon?' I doubt it. I wouldn't risk it.

Can you move out at 17 in Connecticut?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This is a summary of laws dealing with the age to be considered an adult in your state. It is not intended to be all inclusive, but does contain basic and other information. You may check for updates using the state code or bills. If you are a minor and need to your minority removed, search for the word minority under your state. Forms with US- at the beginning of the control number are sample forms for all states.

Connecticut Statutes TITLE 1 PROVISIONS OF GENERAL APPLICATION CHAPTER 1 CONSTRUCTION OF STATUTES

"Minor", "infant", "infancy", "age of majority", defined. Except as otherwise provided by statute, on and after October 1, 1972, the terms "minor", "infant" and "infancy" shall be deemed to refer to a person under the age of eighteen years and any person eighteen years of age or over shall be an adult for all purposes whatsoever and have the same legal capacity, rights, powers, privileges, duties, liabilities and responsibilities as persons heretofore had at twenty-one years of age, and "age of majority" shall be deemed to be eighteen years.

Does a speeding ticket violate your probation?

Word beginning with the letter h?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Officially, yes. Most teachers/professors will accept it either way. ANSWER In American English, it depends on whether or not the "h" is sounded. In "hour," it is not sounded; therefore, we say, "an hour." In "hostage," it is sounded; therefore, we say, "a hostage." [Some U.S.A. dialects use "a" in some words even when the "h" is not sounded. In the South, for example, one hears, "I'll be back in a (h)our."] That view rests on the general rule that if a word begins with a vowel we use "an," if it begins with a consonant, we use "a." Some h-words have alternate pronunciations, with the h and without. For example, the word "homage" is homage or omage -- or, in modern film lingo "ohMAGE." In America, we would say, "a homage"; "an omage"; "an ohMAGE." [spelvin]

Get out of jury duty?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

If you receive a summons to appear for jury duty then you must appear,There are exemptions that can get you excused from jury duty such as health or medical reasons,financial hardships and other circumstances...

If you wish to be removed from all future summons of jury duty then simply go to the court clerk and be taken off the list,most states allow citizens to opt out of future jury duty... Correction to my original post has been made because information was found to be too conflicting to determine properly.

Added: Jury duty is a civic responsibility, and regardless of your 'desire' to be excused from it, every case of "hardship" stands on its own merits and must be evaluated and ruled on individually.

ADDED: All you have to do to get out of jury duty is to go to the DMV, get a new driver's license with a new address on it (outside of the court's jurisdiction) and take it to the clerk of courts and tell them you are in the process of moving to that address and to send all future correspondence to that new address. Either they will be forced to pay you travel time from that new address to the court each day or they will take you off the list. It's obvious that they'll take you off the list. They don't have the funds to check up on you to see if you actually moved and if they did you can always say your plans fell through and you decided not to move. It worked for me and you can always get your license changed back again.

Why should you have to work jury duty for slave labor wages while the fat cat judges, union police, lawyers, DA's, etc. get fat salaries and pensions off of your hard-earned tax dollars? The system is broken and one-sided. Why be a sucker?

Where can a convicted felon find an apartment in Phoenix Arizona?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A convicted felon can find an apartment in Albuquerque New Mexico by doing an internet search for " Apartments in Albuquerque NM that allow felons " It will pull up the yellow pages and although it isn't 100% accurate, it is a start. It's too bad there are so many closed minded people in positions where they are able to make re-entry to society harder than it already is. good luck...

How many people on parole in US?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

If the 2010 report has been released I didnt find it; these figures are for 2009, reporting being turned in at the end of 2008: 828,169 people on parole from prison/jail.

This does not include the number of convicted criminals on probation, never having served any time behind bars (probationers are sentenced and the sentence suspended with probation terms, assigned a probation officer; if probation is violated, they will then go to prison/jail to serve out the remainder of their sentences). Following are the complete stats:

  • Nearly 5.1 million adults were under community supervision at yearend 2008.the equivalent of about 1 in every 45 adults in the United States.
  • Probationers (4,270,917) represented the majority (84%) of the community supervision population in 2008; parolees (828,169) accounted for a smaller share (16%).
  • The probation (0.9%) and parole (0.9%) populations grew at the same rate during 2008. The probation population increased by 36,446 probationers while the parole population increased by 6,992 parolees during the year.
