I recently met up with a guy at a party who got me screwed

I recently met up with a guy at a party who got me screwed up on crystal meth. He told me he knew how to cook it and that we should go get the stuff to make it. We did, and I paid for some of the things that he used. He is now, for the lack of a better term, blackmailing me to buy more precursors, food and cigarettes. He has been feeding me this elaborate story of someone trying to set him up. He told me to bring him something just a little while ago, then once I was home texted me to tell me that I shouldn't have brought that, the police will go through his dumpster and he will be arrested on precursor possession charges and that I need to be prepared to go post a very large bond. What can I do? I know I am in a legal pickle right now.

I'm currently facing cocaine possession charges, but it was

I'm currently facing cocaine possession charges, but it was inside a backpack that wasn't mine, inside my car. The backpack was in the passenger seat. The car is mine. No one else was in the vehicle at the time of arrest, although people were in and out of my car a lot during a vacation. Should I fight these charges and plea not guilty, or take a 15day plea bargain?

I did a plea bargain so not to be sentenced for 25 to life

I did a plea bargain so not to be sentenced for 25 to life as I was told. Unfortunately I did 9 years for 290 case. I have a woman that I have become involved with with permission from parole that knows everything about me. Her neighbors looked me up and found out about my past and turned me into parole by calling the local authorities, even though I had been given permission, but it was to not be in the house if girlfriends son came in house. He would come and go to the bathroom then run outside again. I did not go out every time he came in and neighbors turned me in because of the well being of the child. I was violated and I am now being told that I cannot see her at ALL and must break it off with her, but we are engaged. I understand I don't have any rights while on parole, but isn't this a breach of her civil rights? Can anything be done at all? I love her and want to marry her.

I put the note in his mailbox and now I have a paper in my truck basically threatening since I put the note in his mailbox. He owes me for the repairs since he did not fix the truck, long story--. I want to file in small claims for my damages, but what do I do about the mailbox thing?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Wisconsin, 2003JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, I've spent over 4500 between him and someone else to fix it and I am thoroughly disgusted. He basically threatened us when we picked it up todayJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: He "fixed" it, then it broke down on me two weeks later, we took it to a ford dealer to have it fixed for real. I want him to reimburse me. He said it was fixed, it wasn't. He also knew I would be hauling a trailer with animals and my kids in the truck. Now I have this mailbox this hanging over my head.

I made my husband move out in June due to drug use. He was living out of his vehicle, which is in my name only. As way to get more drugs, he let a drug dealer borrow his truck, but now the dealer will not return the vehicle. I tried to report the truck as stolen, but the police say it is a civil matter, not a criminal matter. I only have a street name and a phone number for the dealer, so I can not file a 10 day demand letter. What can I do to get the truck back? I don't want to keep paying for a truck that I don't have. So what options do I have in protecting myself from further damage from my husband?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Texas, the truck is a 2008, which I just got in January.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no, just trying to figure out what direction to goJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I haven't called the insurance company or the dealership.

I was married to a man AT and this January he left me. He filed for divorce this February and the divorce was finalized in August.I was awarded a boat and 3k. I was able to pick up the boat ASAP and am waiting on the 3k.I received an email from my ex yesterday stating that he believes that my son (!8) and I egged his truck and poured maple syrup on his front porch back in March. He says that he filed a police report in March and he says he wont press charges against my son and me if I sign a paper stating he doesn't have to pay me the 3k.I called the police and they stated it was a closed case and that he had NO proof.My ex now says that an old " friend" is willing to say that I told her I had done it.I recently had to report her to our school district for spreading gossip about my sons sexuality. I believe shes saying this as retaliation.Can he press charges? If so what could happen to us? And isn't this blackmail on his part?
