New friend wanted to park 2 cars in my fathers in probate airplane

This answer was rated:

New friend wanted to park 2 cars in my fathers in probate airplane hanger. I am disabled vet 100% disabled with PTSD and depression. I the Dependent administrator. During a trip to Austin, when I returned to Dallas , there was an engine lift installed and an auto repair business rumming in the hanger. Thwre were at least 10 crashed vehicles on property and homeowners threatening lawsuits. I told him to remove all of it and leave my private property. He said he was gonna be there For a long time. He said he had a lease. I told him to go and I went to court house to get proof of
My letter of adm. To sell property. When I returned I was locked out and the doors to the hanger from apt were nailed shut! I broke a door down and was met by this man pushing me out the door. I called police. When they came try did not believer Bout events. He had his girlfriend that collaborated story. I was so humiliated that they would not hear my side. That its my property Bd he doesn't belong here. They said he had a lease and he had a right to lock it up. I live inside the hanger in a camper and he locked me from access to my camper and property. They told me they would arrest me if j interfere in his business again. The police were called 9
Times in 3 days and not one deputy would believe me after talking to him. He changed his story
From 6 months all the way
To 2
Year
Lease of entire property! With all of my belongings removed immediately. I never signed a lease so when he went home, I locked himh out. The next day he had an writ of reentry. Allowing him back! He tore up and stole spany things and I could do nothing while he did what he pleased. I was told I would be arrested if the popo came back. I called attorney and they had hearing to show cause. He produced a feaudulant lease with forged signature, stating he rents it for 2 years for his business for 300 dollars per month and landlord pays all utilities,(1200.00 mo. ) and landlord or family not allowed on property. The judge ruled in my favor and he was gone. I thought. Today, he texted me that I [email protected] him out of 15000 dollars incoming costs and missed work. I told him he lost so he cost himself for trying to screw a disabled guy. He told me that either I pay him or he contacts my wife(he never met and im bitter divorce custody battle 240 miles away) in Austin and become her best friend. And if I pay him he will go away. Otherwise its gonna get bad. Is this extortion? Is this crime? The deputies tell me aGain its a civil matter and they can't do anything. I'm appalled and I'm shock. When did they Llow extortion or bribery to become a civil matter in Texas? Do I have any recourse? Or just do like the cop said. Pay him to not talk to wife or don't pay him. ?
