Looking for web resource for Canadian court statistics.

How can I locate sources for statistics on the outcomes of Canadian criminal court cases, that include such data as type of defence counsel (ie Legal Aid, from large firm, high profile, new in field, or preferably cost of counsel), amount of time before trial, income/profession of defendant, sentence given, and sentence actually carried out? Does such data even exist? I'm only asking out of curiosity, not for any professional or education project.

How do I become a legal guardian in New Jersey?

How do I petition the court to become my little brother's legal guardian in New Jersey? A little background: My mother has a terminal disease, which may also cause her to be mentally incapacitated at some point (thanks in advance for the condolences). My little brother is 15 and lives at home with my mom. My mom has made it clear to myself and people around her that she wants me to become his guardian after she dies. But, I have had little luck figuring out the actual legal process for initiating the process. [more inside]

Lincoln tunnel ticket

The other day I got a ticket entering the Lincoln tunnel for going 29 in a 5 mile an hour zone. I was cruising down the ramp and just sort of rolled through. All tickets given at the Lincoln tunnel require an appearance at the Weehawken Municipal Court. A fact that seems to be nothing more than an excuse to gouge you for additional fines. There are lawyers who offer their services in the court and I'm wondering if anyone has done this or had any success using a lawyer. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

I allegedly don't understand the word "allegedly." Allegedly.

I am confused as to the use of the word "allegedly" and why it is used outside of a strictly legal sense (in the media for example)? For instance, with this most recent shooting in Texas, there are obviously dozens of eye witnesses, only one suspect under consideration, no one is going to argue in court that someone else did it, so why on the news are the anchors still saying Mr. Hasan "allegedly" shot these people? It just seems weird... [more inside]
