My daughter is getting text and voice mails, the fooicer could not find the number, I did, He calls and nobody answers, The Officer say it could be any body. the Text is things happening in real time, to talking like her boyfriend, the to someone else. One Officer told me to just erase them, thier no good in court, he never even saw them, I hear the boyfriend as connections in the police, he has done this in the past,and I can go on.
State/Country relating to question: Pennsylvania
Tryed to get PFA, I think we can get on monday from all things happening. The Officer told us not to go to the Gops, he was dealing with the case. He said one time"If he keeps this up I'll arrest him, he talked to the uppers, now he says he ment a different kind of arrest, he served him papers for Harassment. This is not even the meat of it. They say to get the ALU involved.
Hi and thank you for using JustAnswer!I am sorry to learn of the circumstances you've described. Please clarify: what is your actual question that you'd like assistance with? What information are you seeking from JustAnswer?
One My daughter now 18 had a child with a person 42at the time. We did not press charges trying to keep the peace. After a lot of crazy she finaly left. She turned 18 then a month later child was born. Now he has done this a lot, lot of domestic, the court say they know him,and police gave the case to a newer Officer and has no experance with the Person. He got ahold of him Saturday night with me and my two daughters. Told him no more contact of any kind, you have no leagel right to the child, he advised him to seek leagel assintance. For right now, Do not contact her or the any one else, you have no legal ties to the child at this point, seek legal advise. He had to raise his voice. While we were there, we got more mail from him and friends of the porson. He said then If he keeps it up the Officer whill arrest him. we all heard it no question. It kept up sunday and monday. So monday I went down. the Assint CHief talked to me. He replyed the text are not good for the court, might as well erase them. the will do you no good. there was nothing they can do till the Officer is back on dute, on the weekend. The Assant also said that the Officer had not properly told the Person the not through third parties also. I told the Assintant Chief the I'm belive He did. He replyed the Officer did not do the job right and he and only him could contact the person. I left and thought about it. I went back Tue and another officer repeated the same thing the Officer did not do his jop properly. I left agan, Talked to some and looked on the internet, and thought I was right and someone should be able to contact the person. So the third trip down, wensday. I talked to the Assintant again I asked simply to have some on to call the person and at least that would be done, the no third paties call, since the asst, said the Officer did not do it properly. The asst. kept up with the same story, I said I would like to talk to the chief, I waited about 20 minutes. the Officer Got called in on a court case. He said he was called in for a court case and some one called off. We talked to him on his shift. He said that was not what he said, about the arrest. The Officer said there are different kinds of arrest, and him serveing the papers was what he was talking about. There is a number that has been calling my daughter through all of this, blow job to kill him, and then sounds like the person(boyfriend) is talking about getting together.
The Officer could not look up the number, he tried but nothing came up. I wemt on line to white pages. and got a nome and such. THe Officer tried calling the number no body answers. So he says there is nothing he can do. I'm not seeing the whole picture and not thinkg this is right. I have heard from enough the he might work fo( sorry the only way I can get the ideal is to say snitch) The court admen. said ther should be more than one in the crimanel and I only found one and the DA droped it. and shortly it will be gone. help.. UCLA ?
I'm sorry but I am not following what you are trying to convey. Is your daughter being threatened with harm?
HE HAS BEEN THROUGH THE SYSTEM, 3 to 4 marriages, dozen girfriends he told me when i finaly meet him the he would never threaten my daughter. know I know why. I think is the officers ahndeling the case ok. do i have to not report any thing but to him. sound right. the ASSt. chief said that is how things are done. THat the unknown number that he can not trace but I can, is this normal. I gave him the persons name and address. He thinks there is nothing to do. They have dectives working down there, I thought with all this going on one of them would take instead of the Street cop. and can unknown phone harassment count as Harassment? we have 33 pages of the comments about 20 precent it to the unknown number.
Has your daughter changed her phone number?
NOt yet, I thought it was good evidance to have for now, yes here shortly getting new plan. please tell me this is not the answere your going to answer? The Cops behaver nad him not finding the number is XXXXX I think and would the ALU or what ever be her best choice? And is the texting not anything to keep?
Your daughter does not know who is doing this, correct?
by the replyes and if you read the 33 pages I think anyone would see what is going on.Im new to this 45 answer and i was hopeing the tell her to get a different no was the answer and the 45. sorry I 'm just worried for my daughter and granddaughter, I has made statments if I get her and such. but the cop do not thinik much of it. I think if he is going to jail grab the kid and run. just a dad think I lived the the place where i was raised. The USA.
I'm sorry but I don't think you answered my last question. What I asked is: does your daughter know who is sending her these texts and voice mails?
I belive and she belives The person that the phone is regestered lent , sold,was stolen from them. It is being used by the persons assosiates and friends. I belive if leagel and physoligest were to read the texts would aggree that the are being done to harrassment, she has a person come to the hose, ten minutes later Icu and XXX
Thank you. So, your daughter does not know who is doing this, correct?
Thank you. And thank you very much for your patience.From the facts that you've described, law enforcement is exercising their discretion to take no action because there has been no threat of physical harm made to your daughter.The actions you've described are illegal; however, the police have limited financial and manpower resources and they cannot afford to investigate every possible crime -- especially when there is no risk of physical harm and there are no suspects.Just like when you get pulled over for speeding, the officer can decide to give you a ticket or a verbal warning, an officer can decide to investigate a possible crime or not.In your situation, the police have decided they are not going to investigate. They can make that choice.What can your daughter do? She can change her phone number.If she knew who was doing this, she could go to civil court and have a restraining order issued against the person.If she doesn't know who's doing this, she can pay a private attorney to file a John/Jane Doe lawsuit, have subpoenas issued and pay private computer people to try to follow the electronic footprints and track down who is doing this. She may not want to do this because it takes a lot of work and would be expensive. Guess what? That's why the police don't want to spend the money out of their budget to investigate. Same reason. Different source of money. Quite honestly, it's just cheaper and quicker for your daughter to get a new phone number.I know that this is not what you wanted to hear but you deserve a candid answer. I wish very much that I could offer you an answer that was more favorable to your circumstances, but the law seems to be pretty clear. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.I hope you understand.It has been my pleasure to assist you today with your information needs. It is my goal that you are satisfied. No expert can promise you an answer that is favorable to your circumstances. But I will do my very best to explain the legal principles that are related to the facts you’ve described so that you can better understand the “why” of things. Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide to give you excellent service!" JB Umphrey41041.767002662
