My roommate accessed my hard drive via our WIFI network and

My roommate accessed my hard drive via our WIFI network and copied several intimate pictures and videos that had been sent to me. He is attempting to coerce me into giving him money to return/delete the data. He states since I provided him access to the WIFI by giving him the password, he did no wrong by accessing and copying the files. Is this correct?Also, I've notified the subject of the photos/videos as they had been sent to me legitimately. Would that individual be able to file any kind of charges against him as well?

I am a disabled senior, female, 65, in Aurora, Co, charged

Hello:I am a disabled senior, female, 65, in Aurora, Co, charged with a municipal assault and battery (I was served a summons). I have a spotless record and just did a stupid thing, under a lot of stress and in a provocative situation, at my Kaiser medical clinic.I had fallen at home on my hip, and was in pain and using my cane to try to walk in to the clinic front door. I had tried to reach Kaiser for over an hour by phone to see where they wanted me to go for sure. Finally I gave up and my neighbor took me to the nearest Kaiser clinic, at which I have been treated several times before. I was denied medical service by a woman at the check-in counter, who rudely told me repeatedly I could not be seen there. I tried to tell her that I had tried to call ahead but to no avail, she just kept repeating loudly, "this is not a trauma clinic, you can't be seen here." As I was walking away I said, "you won't even listen to me..f..ing bitch."She proceeded to follow me all over the clinic as I was limping around, trying to find out where to go, taunting me. I asked her repeatedly to stop following me. Finally she jumped in front of me in a hallway and put her hands and feet out to block the hallway; I was blocked in behind by other employees who had come out, I had no free hands or feet so I tried to get her to move by tapping her on the ankle with my cane. She didn't move, and her arm was right in front of my face, so I started to bite her. Realizing she didn't even flinch, I withdrew. According to the police report, she sustained no visible injury.I was then grabbed hard by the shoulder by someone (her, I think), and they tried to push me into a room. I pulled back and said oh, no you're not going to lock me in a room. Then they let go, leaving significant bruising on the back of my shouder and injuring my shoulder joint. It is still not healed. They still put me in the room saying they weren't going to lock it. I waited for a few minutes, then left, leaving the building.I know this was stupid, but is there any chance of getting a deferred prosecution in Colorado on such charges? Thank you for your help. My name is DonnaI know it

I had a external hard drive connected to my WIFI router at

I had a external hard drive connected to my WIFI router at home to be able to transfer some files onto my laptop. During the time I had it connected, my roommate saw the drive on the network and proceeded to copy a large amount files. He copied personal and confidential information and is using the knowledge of that information to extort money from me.He states it was legal to copy it because I gave him the WIFI password ***** ago, therefore I am somehow giving him permission to access anything on the network. My analogy, I see it as money laying out in my own bedroom. He had to open the door (the hard drive) walk in, look around and then take the money. Sure, the room wasn't locked, but that's not giving him permission to scope around my room and take anything he sees. What are my legal options here?

I have an ex boyfriend and his wife (I believe) who are

I have an ex boyfriend and his wife (I believe) who are responsible for filing a criminal complaint against me for cyber harrassment. I had an argument with this ex boyfriend on-line and I got a weird call from a Texas detective telling me to call him regarding a criminal complaint filed against me?! I live in San Diego, CA and have not seen this person for years! He is a womanizer and cheated on me and I'm guessing he has many women angry with him! This is a frivilous complaint, is it okay to ignore it or what should I do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: He is in Texas and I am in California! He filed some sort of harrassment/cyber complaint against me I'm guessing. I have not threatened him or done anything tell him off on-line! It's crazy!JA: Have any charges been filed? If so, what?Customer: I don't think so. All I know is that he filed a Criminal Complaint against me. For what I do Not know! I had a Texas Detective leave me a VM asking him to call him regarding a criminal complaint that has been filed against me!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No but I would love to connect to the attorney. Thank you.
