I notified the finance company where the vehicle is located

Good Afternoon,I notified the finance company where the vehicle is located or where I believe it is located. The loan is default are they required to notify me when the find the vehicle? They also requested the phone number of the person who has the vehicle I provided a name but I am not comfortable giving them a phone number I do not trust either party not to screw me over some more. Am I required to do anything else?

My attorney filed a motion to dismiss a criminal complaint

My attorney filed a motion to dismiss a criminal complaint against me for being facially insufficient. Even a layman without a law degree would agree - it was poorly drafted and barely touched on elements to make a prima facie case. In NYC a one count B misdemeanor doesn't get a trial jury - it is bench (I am sure you know this, but I was horrified to learn) --the prosecutor responded to this motion NOT by redrafting complaint, but rather denying it and including for reason of denial email correspondence and other exhibits which made apparent my previous arrest in a case I received COMPLETE DISMISSAL for bc the prosecutor made egregious errors. It is my personal opinion this is a revenge thing, but that's just my opinion. As such, the judge denied the motion bc the prosecutor only submitted exhibits convenient for them, while my attorney was attempting to be ethical and stick to the four corners of the complaint.My question is this: are a defendant's rights violated if, in a response for a motion to dismiss for lack of making a prima facie case, the prosecutor's response to judge, who is the fact decider in bench trial, was a series of exhibits of a previous case that had been dismissed in my favor and sealed? I feel like this was extremely unfair.

I have a son who took a ten year plea, for his wife's

I have a son who took a ten year plea, for his wife's activity of CP downloading. He loved his wife with total commitment. She was present at all legal proceedings, so without pause, he took the fall for her. After his incarceration, she admitted to a third party, of what she had done. His wife has now divorced him, which shattered him. We are now trying to overturn his plea. He is innocent of this offense. Even if he had changed his mind during legal proceedings, she was in the room so he stuck with his false claim of guilty. How do I even approach getting him out of prison.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TennesseeJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: we just after three years heard of his wife's admission to the deed.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I am doing this on my phone with it's limitations. This is a federal case.
