Hi! So i was doing research on nudism and I googled "nudism" and a few search results down was a suspicious looking website. I did not attempt to access the website and instead copied and pasted the URL to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's website. Is there any reason that I would get in trouble or be under investigation for this?

In Texas. Me and my ex are going through a custody battle.

Hello I am Dave in Texas. Me and my ex are going through a custody battle. For now we have to switch our child at the police station. Last week we met at 4 an talked out side the police station for about 2 hours. It went good then I asked her if she wanted to hugme and she told me no. So I said okay and i walked 3 spaces over an I got in my truck. I looked at my Phone sat it down on the console and grabbed the drive shaft and my ex opens my passenger door reaches over an grabs my phone and starts saying were you recording us and she goes to my videos and pics an deleted a few things and I don't touch her cuz I don't want any charges at all on me! So tell her she's crazy and to get out and she starts to be nice to me and says let's meet tonight after she feeds her kids etc.well I get home and I notice 200 dollars that was on my seat is gone. I can't honestly say if she did do it or if it fell out.Anyway I called the police and I told her too. She went back to the police station and she admitted opening my door and getting my phone but says she didn't get the money.So the officer I talk to over the phone he tells me I can't do much cuz we were talking but we knew their was boundaries.Then he says well file the report online so I do then it is rejected so the next day I go to the police station show them the email that it said it was rejected due to me naming a suspect.So he tells me yes you can do something. Since you guys don't live together, aren't married, and the truck isn't in her name. So he turns it in as burglary to a vehicle.My question is I have read a lot of different stories. Some people say because I was in the vehicle they will say it is okay... some say I can't prove she took any money and that is true. She did admit to getting my phone to the officer. To me my data is intangible property and by deleting it she stole it from me.Anyway I just want to know if you have any ideas on a response or a counter if the detectives decide to turn this down for some reason.... plus! Shouldn't it be tampering with evidence since we are in an on going custody battle? We just had court and we are awaiting mediation at the moment..

My daughter missed her court date (it was yesterday). This is the second time she missed her court date. How should she handle this situation?

Washington St., Pierce County.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, I thought that I would investigate for her (she doesn't live with me, but I can contact her) and give her your advice.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: This does have to do with a criminal charge.

I'm applying for a concealed weapons permit in Colorado. 15

I'm applying for a concealed weapons permit in Colorado. 15 years ago I was arrested, for 3rd degree assult was on probation did what the courts asked of me, then the case was dropped. I had an attorney get my records sealed. I know they do an FBI and a CBI (Colorado Bureau of Investigation) but that would limit me from getting my license would it???JA: Have charges been filed? Is there a prior criminal record?Customer: I was charged with 3rd degree assault Misdemeanor, it was a DV ordeal. but since it was my first offense, I was put on probation for 2 years, I only did 1 year of probation due to good behavior and everything was dropped. About 3 years after that even I went into the Military as well, and I'm still in. I haven't been arrested since for anything.JA: In what state did this occur?Customer: ColoradoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just didn't want to be disappointed if I was denied. But I work for the Department of Defense full time and reservist part time, you'd think I wouldn't have been able to come into the Military.

I was arrested for "falseley reporting an incident in the

Hi, I was arrested for "falseley reporting an incident in the 2nd degree in NY, class E felony. All I did was call my Mother from my mothers house when she was at the public lake and told her the house was on fire, but then I told her immediateley after that the fire was extinguished, and not to send the fire dept. I didn't tell her to call 911 or the fire dept. She yelled out, Oh, my god, my house is on fire, and her friend nearby called 911 on her behalf. My mother also conveyed to her friend that the fire was extinguished and not to send the fire dept. I believe she told them this over the 911 call. Anyway, I had no malice, criminal intent, or culpability to committ a crime. I wasn't trying to make a false report. I was simply upset with my Mother and it was a cry out for help. I was psychotic at the time this happened, and wound up in the psychiatric ward 3 day's later. I didn't call 911 or the fire dept neither.This seems preposterous to me that I was even charged. I don't believe I should have been charged, but because of small town politics and my rap sheet, no felony convictions, they decided to pursue criminal charges. It seems like a weak case to me. What do you think? do they have enough sufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt all the elements of the crime or not?

My phone accidentally sent a vulgar picture to a girl who I

My phone accidentally sent a vulgar picture to a girl who I do not know on Facebook while in my pocket. Now I'm devastatingly anxious at the possibility that she could be a minor. I have no information on this girl as I don't know her at all. It just randomly sent it to her. She could be 30 she could be 17, either way I'm very worried. What kind of punishment am I facing if this lady is under 18, what punishment do I face if she's over 18 and is pissed that a stranger just sent them a vulgar pic.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm in WV. This woman is in FL according to Facebook.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I sent an apology stating that I apologized for accidentally sending her a Message I also requested she delete it. That being said I attempted to delete it myself and according to my facebook she did not see the photo before I deleted it. There's a good possibility that she did not even ever see the photo
