Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions
Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.
1) Question: My mother was watching my kids for the day. They went to McDonald's and for unknown reasons my mom agreed to let my 10-year-old daughter park her car. Of course, my daughter then proceeded to run into three other cars in the process. Will my daughter get in any trouble for this?
Answer: No, but grandma will likely be cited for allowing an unlicensed person to operate her motor vehicle. (Boston.com, South Boston grandmother let 10-year-old drive her car, police say)
2) Question: I am awaiting trial on federal charges. The judge ruled that I can be released on bail but only if I read at least one hour every day, and write reports on certain books for at least 30 minutes every day. Can he do this? I hate to read!!
Answer: It would not be the first time a judge has issued a "read or jail" ultimatum. Of course you can always choose jail if the reading and writing is too hard for you. (New York Daily News, Write a book report, avoid jail: Judge orders man freed if he commits to literature) (via PrawfsBlawg)
3) Question: My husband is having trouble breathing but when I dial 911 all I hear is the sound of someone snoring. What is going on here?
Answer: Sometimes 911 operators get tired, too. (WTOP.com, Md. dispatcher snores through emergency call)
