My ex partner lives in LA I am in the U.K., currently the police are preparing a file to get him arrested for death threats, stalking, putting nude photos of me on the internet, harassment, paying people to come to my home and work to frighten me and my children, and he is constantly putting things on social media about me and my children getting raped. Can I sue him ? And how, thanks Emily

We were having a family meeting and my oldest sister was

We were having a family meeting and my oldest sister was very agitated and angry, standing up, siting down and interrupting everyone. My husband kept asking her to be quite so I could speak, she lunged at him, got in his face and yelled F*** You! He put his hands up and blocked her, as he stood to get her away from him he wrapped his hands around her throat (but not chocking her) and pushing her away where I pulled the two apart and she threatened to press charges. I told her it would be the last thing she would do, meaning, last thing she would ever do with us, or me or the family, not a death threat, just a "you will be gone form my life" statement. No one was right here, but my sister was the aggressor, if she "pressed charges" what would be the results?

M*** Jr, I just have a question about NICS background check.

Hello, My name is******** Jr, I just have a question about NICS background check. So, I have purchased a handgun from a local gun store about 3 days ago because my friend got me into target shooting at the range. So I passed my FSC test and bought a hand gun the next day. The gentleman says I would have to come back in 10 days to pick it up, so I did some research on gun safety to better my knowledge and came across nics background checks. On question C (Have you ever been convicted of a felony, or any other crime) I answered NO, but I have been arrested before as a juvenile when i was 16 for a threat I said to of of my classmates. I was young & dumb and should have known better but the student took it seriously and told the principal and the situation escalated. I was brought to juvenile hall for a night. Next day judge released me on 3 month house arrest. Was in good standings with my probation officer. So I had a record but my PO officer told me that my record would go away once i turned 18. So I dont know if I should have answered yes or no on the question. I am very nervous and do not want to get in trouble for lying on the test. What will happen? I should have did a little more research before purchasing a firearm. JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge? Customer: It is in CA, and to be honest I do not remember what they charged me with. All i remember is it was a death threat to a classmate JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet? Customer: No i have not. JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: That is all

Over the last six weeks or so I have received a variety of

Over the last six weeks or so I have received a variety of threats, including death threats, from my brother. He was demanding that I send him money,claiming I should contribute to their household budget (he was caring for my Mom, living on her SS check). I opted out of reporting them because my mother was very ill. She has since passed away. I am now obsessing about whether I should have reported them, and whether I should try to recover and print them all out from my phone. The worst threats from some weeks ago have gotten autodeleted out of my text messages. Should I let go of this? He has been threatening me for years but never left a threat that I could prove, before this. I am having a hard time letting go of this. How useful might a comment like "you deserve for me to give it to you in the neck" if I didn't send money, be in court? He also expressed a wish that I would get raoed, and assured me he would tell my family members things about me that would cause them to shun me. Should I just get therapy and leave it at that? Still shaken. ***** *****JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: What addition details would you like?JA: OK got it.

Evidence Gathering I suffer from mental illness and was

Evidence GatheringI suffer from mental illness and was involved in a criminal matter in New Jersey. To make a long story short, I received a death threat from an employee at the company at which I was working, my employer demanded my physical address (I use a P. O. Box for mail) and in a short period of time someone broke into my home and car. My employer prevented me from getting disability insurance payments when I quit my job from the stress, which resulted in my not having money for food and medication. This caused me to be paranoid and to act out by destroying the equipment that I believed that my employer was using to track my whereabouts.The destruction was all caught on videotape and no one was physically menaced or verbally threatened. My lawyers (public defender and private) threw me under the proverbial bus. They didn't pursue a diminished capacity or insanity defense and allowed falsified evidence to be used against me. The video tape was doctored and my former supervisor said that I called her from the county jail and threatened her. The threat allegation was impossible because the phone system in the jail requires one to make only collect calls; therefore, she would have had to accept a collect call from me while I was at the county jail. I was suborned to plead guilty to avoid a 10-year prison sentence built on false evidence and an order preventing me from contacting anyone at the company was issued.I want to hire someone, an actor or a private investigator to speak with the employees of the company to gather evidence and incriminating statements from employees of them. Can I legally do that without violating the no contact order so that I can give the information to my Post-Conviction Relief attorney?

If I'm reading you right, then an adult who is making death threats via phone and text message could be arrested? He is also mentally ill and at the moment completely delusional.
