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 boyfriend's 6-year-old son has challenged me to a "bite contest" to see who can bite the other the hardest. There's no way a 6-year-old can beat me in a bite contest. Game on, right?

Answer: No. That could get you charged with "child abuse without great harm." (NBCMiami, Florida woman bit boyfriend's 6-year-old son, police say)

2. Question: I'd like to buy some land, but I only have ten bucks. Is that going to be a problem?

Answer: Not if you're willing to buy land in Pipestone, Manitoba! (The StarWant to buy a plot of land for $10? You can in Manitoba)

3. Question: I'm a defendant in a criminal case. During closing arguments, the prosecutor presented a PowerPoint slide show with my mug shot and the word "guilty" superimposed in red letters three times across my face. I was convicted by the jury. Is this a legitimate tactic? 

Answer: That is not a legit tactic, and your conviction will likely be reversed. (How Appealing, Wash. convictions reversed over PowerPoint show)
