I have consultant an attorney regarding her brother stealing my lawnmower.
I have tried to talk to her to talk to me. She claims she has gone to police for harrassment, so it makes it difficult to talk to her.

Also while I was out on Disabilty my paycheck got screwed up. Had she not taken my money I would have been ok however, I overdrew my account. Am I entitled to compensation for that along with mental anguish?
You are not entitled to mental anguish in this type of matter. The overdraft charges, though, you may have a shot at recovering.Mental anguish or pain and suffering is for personal injury claims or medical malpractice.
