My ex and I split up, they left my stuff in the garage for me to pick up,but forgot one item. I went into the house and got it. Later I ended up buying them one Bc I felt bad they didn't have one anyways. Now a year and a half later they are saying it was breaking and entering Bc they asked me not to enter the house. They are saying they have video evidence from next door neighbors and are threatening to take to police if I don't pay them 2200. If we both lived there but it was in her name would it be breaking and entering if I didn't steal anything? And how lond does she have before this runs out. It all just seems so bogus now.

I red a criminal defense lawyer to defend me on two DVView more criminal law questions
Hi, I hired a criminal defense lawyer to defend me on two DV charges, and I'm not satisfied with the services rendered. I hired this lawyer mid-way through, after the arraignment. She only had to attend a continuance hearing and the actual trial. She was late to both hearings. At the first hearing she failed to notify me she was running late. I didn't say anything because I understand people run late. Now today we had the trial at 10:30am and I had the judge and the prosecutor asking me where my lawyer was, and again she failed to notify me she was running late. The prosecutor needed up having to Google her phone number to ensure she didn't object to the charges being dismissed. By 11:00am the judge gave me the dismissal paperwork and I left the court. My lawyer contacted me shortly afterward to discuss the dismissal. She didn't acknowledge or apologize for running late. When I brought up my frustration, she gave me push back and said, "Well the court knew I was running late and I'm here now." She seemed to dismiss me and my concerns. For the amount of money I paid her, I don't feel I got adequate representation or common courtesy, and frankly it was embarrassing to sit in court twice waiting on my lawyer. What can be done about this?
