I have come to realize that the gh end bicycle purchased

I have come to realize that the high end bicycle purchased locally through Craiglist is actually a counterfeit. I now have written confirmation from the Pinarello (authentic Manufacter) US distributor. The seller claims he did not know that is was counterfeit. I do have reason to believe otherwise, however, I would like to know if I have a case against the seller to recoup 100% of my $3,500 purchase price should I not be able to prove his knowledge of such or not. Also, in such case, would I be required to return the item.The seller resides in Olathe Kansas, Johnson county, where I first viewed the bicycle at his residence. I reside in Wildwood, Missouri, St. Louis County. The actual transaction took place in Indenpendance, Missouri, Jackson County. Where would I file my case?It seems I have a couple cases, Civil or small claims and then criminal. Would I own the criminal offense or would the County/state or federal gov't or authentic manufacturer?

My brother is incarcerated in the Sarasota County Jail, in

My brother is incarcerated in the Sarasota County Jail, in Florida, at this time. He has pending charges in Manatee County Florida as well. Monday at his Sarasota sentencing the States attorney made mention that there was an administrative hold on my brother for Manatee Co Sheriff's Office and the Judge searched online the Manatee County Clerk Of Courts and found the PCA and read portions of those records. The Judge asked if everyone wanted a continuence and the State said YES they wanted to subpeona the Manatee Co Deputy involved and my brothers Public Defender said that it was wrong to bring those pending charges up at sentencing and the Judge said we will postpone til Friday and you can bring me how that was illegal to bring up. So my question is was it illegal??? What does my brother need to do now if it was illegal??? My brother feels the Public Defender has no clue what he's doing. The Public Defender objected to nothing until my brother leaned over and asked him to say something. Can my brother ask for another Public Defender??? Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.
