Can I file a civil law suit against a sheriff's office after

can I file a civil law suit against a sheriff's office after been suspended and arrested all on the same day when I was there patrol supervisor. I have fought for my unemployment, state ruled in my favor. I went before the Sheriff's review board, they ruled I should of never been terminated. I took a polygraph its results ruled there were no deceptions on my part. Went to court and Judge dismissed case due to lack of the County Attorney couldn't show or prove the elements of the crime. Now I have went before an Admin Judge for my peace officer licenses and waiting a ruling on that. Which I believe went very well. I have an ex captain from this same dept that left there because of the corruption. He told me he was in a meeting and The Brass stated they needed to get rid of me. The investigation clearly shows they tampered with government documents and committed perjury.

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 live in Texas, and out of anger I posted intimate pictures

I live in Texas, and out of anger I posted intimate pictures of a woman who lives in Nigeria online. The intimate photos were obtained from my ex boyfriends phone. I also sent an intimate video of her to one of her family members who lives in Texas. I posted them on Instagram specifically. I later deleted the postings, but the family member still has the message. Everything was sent through a fake page. Me and the lady have fought via messages back and forth and she threatened me that she would be coming to see me in the U.S. soon. She ended up getting a travelers VISA and coming to Texas. Nothing physical has happened so far and I have not seen her. But she did message me saying that she was going to get back at me in a better way by reporting me to the police about those pictures I posted on Instagram. At this point I do not know what to do because I work and I honestly have never been in any legal trouble. I am willing to comply with law enforcement and give the absolute truth about the postings. I would just like to know what will actually happen? I made a mistake out of anger and I'm very concerned about what charges I would get. What should I prepare to do at this point? Do I need a lawyer, and am I looking at jail time?
