Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I'm so proud of my daughter for graduating from high school. I cheered so loudly for her when they called her name and she walked across the stage! Why are the police coming down my aisle of the auditorium?

Answer: Sorry, but graduation ceremonies are "solemn occasions" and anyone caught cheering will be arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. (Global PostShannon Cooper, proud mother, arrested for cheering too loudly at high school graduation)

2) Question: Why does my husband have "It's complicated" as his Facebook relationship status?

Answer: He probably has another wife. (WSOC TV, NC man accused of bigamy; Facebook status lists 'complicated')

3) Question: I'm new on the police force. We just responded to a call from a man complaining that a woman grabbed him by the scrotum and squeezed his testicle out of his scrotum. What is the proper charge here? "Assault" seems a bit inadequate.

Answer: I think "Malicious Castration" is the criminal charge you are looking for. (Shelby StarWoman charged with castration, urinates in police car)
