Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My bank does not sell money orders. Believe me, I'm as surprised and completely outraged as you are, and I expressed my displeasure by urinating in the tube that the bank uses in its drive-through. Can I get in trouble for this?

Answer: If they find you, you may be looking at a second-degree misdemeanor charge. (WFTV, Customer reportedly urinates in drive-through bank tube) (via Legal Juice)

2) Question: My co-workers at the strip club foolishly offered to perform sex acts on undercover policemen for $250, and got themselves charged with prostitution. I also offered to perform sex acts on the undercover policemen but all I asked for in exchange was a beer. Does that count as prostitution, too?

Answer: Sorry, but yes. (The Sun NewsThree women face prostitution charges in Myrtle Beach area police sting)

3) Question: Yes, I told the judge that he was in "contempt of law" but I was admitted to the bar in 1990, when the ethics rules required "zealous advocacy." Aren't I "grandfathered" in under the old ethics rules? 

Answer: Apparently it does not work that way. (ABA Journal, Lawyer Who Argued He Was 'Grandfathered In' Under Old Ethics Rules Loses Contempt Appeal)
