Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: Why was I able to get such a great deal on the used car I recently purchased? And why has my health steadily deteriorated ever since I bought it?

Answer: Watch out, vehicles with high radiation levels from the area around Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant were supposed to be destroyed, but are now being sold by unscrupulous dealers. (NBC LA, Radioactive Used Cars Being Sold in Japan)

2) Question: I saw your Q&A recently about the couple that got lost in a corn maze and called 9-1-1. Are you sure they didn't get lost in an apple orchard and call 9-1-1, not a corn maze?

Answer: Unfortunately it looks like we are talking about two separate "lost-in-crops-calling-9-1-1" couples. (GateHouse News Service, Newton couple gets lost in Stow apple orchard)

3) Question: My wife drove to an Internet cafe to do some online gambling, and left our 11-year-old son sleeping in the car. While she was gambling, a repo man came and drove away with the car -- which still contained my sleeping 11-year-old. When my son finally woke up and the repo man noticed him, the man just kept on going and dumped him off at a gas station on the highway. Who may be facing charges here?

Answer: At least your wife, who may face child neglect charges. And possibly the repo man for dumping the boy off at a random gas station. (WESH Orlando, Police: Mom Gambles, Car Repo'd With Kid Inside) (via Consumerist)
