I'm now trying to find another job and they will be running the child abuse clearance. It is for a hospital admin position can this stop me from getting hired? Can I get this expunged?

I was a former employee at a daycare in birmingham, Al. Last

I was a former employee at a daycare in birmingham, Al. Last Friday two boys in my class room the age 4 and 6 was fighting over a toy, they were both on the floor, I grab the 4 year old by his arm to get him off the floor, and told him to sit next to me. Long story short around 4ish the little boy went to his grandma and said look what my teacher did. I didn't realize I scratched to boy until my supervisor told me. I was shook. Anyways like 3 mins later she called me to the office and told me to write what happen which I did, and she told me I had to go home. On yesterday I heard from my director and she wanted another statement from on the phone which I gave her. And she went on and on about how the DHR had my social security number and they know we're I live, and I need to keep my phone on, at all time. I told her I didn't mean to scratch him it was and accident. I really feel like her and the assistant director trying to set example out of me. The police and the detective came up there looking for me. Tell me why both the director telling other employees about it. Like its a joke!!! I take this very seriously, and I feel like she trying to ruin my career.ni love my job, and I would never hurt a child. I also have a friend at my job who is giving detail about wants going since I don't know nothing!!!

Can I sue my attorney? Three years ago I was convicted of a

Can I sue my attorney? Three years ago I was convicted of a dui with a .09 bac. Because I had a minor with me, I was also automatically charged and convicted of child abuse. I had drank less than 1 - 16 oz. beer. I had a tooth extracted the week before the dui and I still had a partially healed pocket in my gum. I believe I was retaining fluids in that pocket and that was what caused me to fail the breathylzer. I could drink tomato juice and taste it for 2 days.When I relayed this to my attorney, his response is "no judge is going to buy that. You can't afford me to take it before a jury or pay for an expert witness (dentist)." He advised me to plead guilty and take my licks. My licks included a 30 day jail sentence for the child abuse conviction. I asked my dentist if the tooth extraction could leave a pocket causing me to retain fluids. His response was "absolutely".I lost my job when I was in jail. I have since not been able to get another job because of this conviction on my record. I was an IT professional. I can't even get a PT job at Bojangles.Is there any hope that I can get this off my record? Because I pleaded guilty, I understand that I cannot possibly have this expunged from my record.I believe this was incompetence on my attorney's part for not allowing me to plead not guilty. Can I sue my attorney?

I am an American. My husband and I are working on a trust

I am an American. My husband and I are working on a trust for our seven year old and are naming a Guardian. We want to name our friend who lives on Canada and his wife. Will there be too many legal issues to do this? I also need to mention that he is a Canada permanent resident not quite a citizen yet. He also left the US after failing to get a green card. He had overstayed his visa but was never formally deported.

I have a friend who lives in a condo in Kentucky and pays a

I have a friend who lives in a condo in Kentucky and pays a monthly condo fee? She took her 7 yr old granddaughter with her to the condo pool. Apparently, a child already there had unfortunately vomited and was in the pool, (please note the condo association president was also laying out there with 2 friends as well because she made it clear who she was) my friend concerned about allowing her granddaughter to enter the pool asked the condo president there what should they do? As the adult member of the child who vomited/spitup started getting the vomit/spitup out, the condo president stated it would be alright to get in? My friend still concerned called the property group and stated the concern to them , and they said they would call the pool man? My friend became very upset and was being called an instigator by the president, while still not allowing her granddaughter to go in the pool the condo president started chastising/accusing her of child abuse for not allowing her granddaughter to get in and that it was ok and proceeded to jump in herself (as well as her male friend) Eventually the property group called my friend back and sent someone to clean the pool which would take about 45 mintues. The condo president and her 2 people with her (one male and one female) started telling her to get out and that no one liked her anyway while also telling other people entering the pool area that it was her fault that the pool was closed, my friend starting to get very upset and granddaughter decided to leave. My friend does not have a lot of money and would like your advice on what she should do? She plans on going to the condo association meeting next week and complain as this is harassment and could have been a potential health issue? Please respond if you could? Thanks so much for your time?Rob

I have a question that relates to Family Court, disability

Hello, I have a question that relates to Family Court, disability and poverty. My best friend and her husband are both low income. They both do not have their drivers licenses. She cannot drive because she has epilepsy, and he is busy working all the time to the point where it is hard for him to find the time to learn how to drive. This has resulted in making it difficult to remove unwanted pieces of furniture and objects from the home, because they couldn't get a truck, and no body in the their family was ever available to help with moving for more than one day. So, over the course of many years things built up, and started crowding the apartment. Just yesterday they took both of her children away, because of the clutter and she is afraid she has lost her daughters forever. She is torn apart, and her husband doesn't know what to do. They are lost. Furthermore, their daughter has mental health issues; might be ADHD or Autism, she was just about to have have her evaluated by a behavioral counselor before they took them. These case workers did not provide any warning, and they did not offer a mediation before taking both of the girls. They just came over after an initial visit and took the girls. Is there any advice?

My 6 year niece was being touch by another 6 year student

Hello!My 6 year niece was being touch by another 6 year student throughout the school day. She has been behaving very withdrawn, complaining to the nurse frequently about headaches or stomach pains to get sent home. She even developed what seems to be Encropsis. She has been soiling her pants for the past week. Today it was brought to our attention that they caught the other child hands in her pants. My niece broke down crying informing us and the school teacher that she's afraid to tell us because the other student threatened to not be her friend if she told anyone. The school informed the other parent and the other parent stated that they will talk to their daughter! As an educator, this is a matter where child protective services should have been contact and the other child should not have been released to the parent.WHERE WERE THE ADULTS WHEN MY NIECE WAS BEING TOUCHED? WHERE IS THE SUPERVISION? WHY WAS THE CASE NOT REPORTED TO THE STATE REGARDING THE OTHER SIX YEAR OLD! THAT OTHER CHILD COULD BE GOING TO A HOME WITH A MOLESTER THERE!This occurred in Fort Lauderale Florida. Please advice.

I received a certified letter from my local police

I received a certified letter from my local police department from a detective who wanted to speak with me regarding a "possible illegal conduct" I was involved in. I received it after hours, and was freaking out! I do not have a criminal background at all, so I was panicking. I called the police dispatch line just to find out what the issue was. Dispatch put me on hold to read the report and came back to the call laughing. She said she had not read anything that stupid in a long time. Apparently the company that I rented to own my daughter's violin from felt that I still owed them money. We purchased it in 2012 and automatic payments were deducted from our account monthly. At least 2 full years of payments were made, so we thought the violin was paid off and never heard anything again. It was out of sight, out of mind for us as my daughter quit orchestra after the second year.Well, they apparently tried to file criminal charges (against just me, despite the fact the contract is in my husband's name first). Upon my research, I discovered that I was at fault as we changed banks and we probably owed $165 at most as I had the breakdown of how much of the payment was applied to the instrument and how much was applied to the rental agreement. We, however, had changed banks and moved, so I guess everything got lost within all the changes. The company however informed the police department that we owed them $290! I have an email in June of 2014 from the owner of the company of where she clearly states that my payoff at that point was $209 and I have records of making at least 3 payments after that. For the sake of just not wanting to deal with it, I returned the violin this morning (even though it was almost paid off). I just didn't want to deal with them. They notified the police department that they would not be pursuing charges.My questions are: With murderers, rapists, and child abusers out there, how in the world, would this be considered a criminal charge and even a blip on a police departments radar (and not considered a civil issue)? and can I press charges after them for filing a false report for all of the inaccuracies?
