Oklahoma Elder care law, elder financial exploitation, POA.

Oklahoma Elder care law, elder financial exploitation, POA.My mother has dementia and we were taking care of her at home.She got so bad we had to check her into a nursing home.My mother and I had some money, partly mine, partly hers, in a joint money market account.Prior to putting her in the nursing home, I moved the money to a me-only money market account and closed the joint account.I have durrable power of attorney.I understood that there might be a penalty with Medicaid for doing this. However, I did this to separate my funds from hers, as well as toremove her access in case someone in the nursing home tried to take advantage of her. I also took her credit cards and debit card out of herwallet and put them in my safe, for the same reason.The money I moved has only been used to pay for my mothers care.Medicaid (Soonercare, we live in Oklahoma) of course found the closed account (expected) and are threatening a penalty (expected). Not expected was thethreat to turn me into "adult protective services", I assume for "elder financial exploitation".Question, is the case worker just blowing smoke, or is there a legitimate risk of prosecution for this?

My 17 year old daughter ran into a high school acquaintance,

My 17 year old daughter ran into a high school acquaintance, whom she has not spoken to in over 4 years, 3 weeks ago. This young lady, whom I have never met, invited my daughter over to spend weekend. When my returned with the young lady, I discovered she was 8 months pregnant, having her second child. So, after the first meeting, my daughter kept wanting to spend time with this young lady, so one night my daughter returned home and started sharing with me that her friend's mother had taken her to the phone store,leased a new phone, and added her name (the mom's) to my daughter's phone line. She then proceeded to share that the friend's mom was attempting to to help her with a work relate pay issue and she (the mom) added her name to my daughter's account, thus diverting my daughter's paychecks from her bank to the mother's bank and the mother wanted her to go the back and order checks. Needless to say when I heard all of this, this, I was furious. I immediately contacted Sprint an opened a fraud case. I went to my daughter's job reported this and closed her account and set up debit card payments. I went to my bank and reported my suspicion resulting in my daughter's being reissued a new bank card and account number, and was informed that due to the purchase of the new phone, my daughter had piled up some overdraft fees. So, now that we have taken care of those things, the problem lies now with us getting this woman off my daughter's phone service and it has not been easy because SPRINT wants the phone back and during this entire process, my daughter is being responsible for the bills this later produces. What can we do legally to get this woman removed off my daughter's phone service and hold her accountable?

my husband and I both got served with crimal summons for checkes I wrote a vet last sept. can we both be charged for the same thing I signed the checks. we took out 17 yr old dog to get 1 tooth bulled and when I picked him up they pulled all his teach and charged us 200 more I thought maybe they talked to my husband I had not talked to him all day . so when I got home I asked him he said they never called to ask him well after 3 days our dogs was not getting any better was in a lot of pain I texted the vet and they said to bring him in at 9pm I did and they gave him fulid and pain meds and then some bendryl. they let me post date 2 checks for 75.00 a piece by the time I got him with him he was hulanited and called them back they told me to take him to the emergency vet took him there to find out they over dosed the dog so that was a 175.00 dollar visit. then a few days letter he was not doing much better the wanted me to bring him back so id d and they tried to feed him gave him more fulids that was 160.00 for that visit. on the way home I was thinking that we only one 1 tooth pulled having all his teeth pulled was just to much for him. so I decided no to pay the first check for 266.00 to bounce I talked to them and told them that I would be willing to pay what they would of charged me for the 1 tough and the meds and them told me I owed the whole thing. so they had a total of 5 checks from me and 2 came back from the bank as nsf and the other 3 they never put thru the bank . but they are getting my husband and I for the same thing, 5 worthless checks can they do that.

I'm freaking because I used my debit card at a massage

I'm freaking because I used my debit card at a massage parlor and they took a copy of my license. I will never go back there again, but I am worried that if the place gets stinged they will see that I was there and the police will want to question me or even arrest me.

My roomate and i were in kentucky. we went to a store to buy

hi, my roomate and i were in kentucky. we went to a store to buy a couple stuff...my roomate went first inside and got his stuff while i was outside on the phone, and when he came back out of the store, i ended up my phone conversation and went inside to buy a couple things. i went inside got the things i wanted to buy, came back to the car, dropped the items, and i was going to walk back inside the store to use the bathroom. As soon as i reach the store doors, we were stop by police officers and the store lost and prevention people. The police officer said he was called by the store security people and they told him me and my roomate were acting suspiciously, buying things and coming in and out of the store. I told the police officer i had no idea what he was talking about, but he was insisting on saying we had fraudulent credit cards. After a couple of minute of talks, i handed to him my credit card and my debit card. He went to his car, talked on the phone and came back saying that this was not the credit cards he wanted, and that i had to give him the allegedly fraudulent credit cards that we used in the store. Because we had already thrown away the receipts, i told him i don't know which cards he was talking about. The police officer then insisted that i gave him everything that i had in my wallet (including business cards, and all...everything..)..i was a little bit resistant, but being scared i obeyed him and gave him everything inside my wallet. He also went to my roomate and also ask him to give him his wallet also. After more than an hour of wait outside, the police officer arrested us and charged us with 3 different felonies: 1) false making/embossing of credit cards..2) trafficking in financial information...and 3) criminal possession of forged instrument-2nd degree......Now i want to file a motion to suppress evidence based on illegal search and seizure based on the fourth amendment because i did not (nor my roomate) consent to a search and no warrant was provided to search our personal belongings (wallets). I believe we had a right to a certain privacy protected by the law , and no probable cause was involved. ...just wanted to have an expert opinion first. thanks.

I am Landon ******.I believe I was assaulted by an

Hello, I am Landon ******.I believe I was assaulted by an officer and abducted by the police and am wondering if there is any way you can assist me in a law suit or beating my case which I believe is unjust.My situation;After pulling into my driveway and exiting the vehicle I was surprised to see there was an officer aggressively approaching me and yelling at me. I was frightened and I stood still as he continued to yell. As he got close enough that I could understand what he was saying, I heard him tell me to get back into the car and immediately after he asked me what I was doing. I replied, "nothing" as I held out my palms to show that there was only my debit card in my hands at which time he grabbed and twisted my arm and hurt me. I did not want to get into any physical altercation, nor do I believe that I acted in anyway to incite physical aggression or violence. I believe I was being assaulted and bullied and I freed myself and ran into my home where I thought I would be safe. I told my wife what was happening as more officers showed up and knocked on the door.I opened the door and was pulled out of my home by a different officer at which time I was interrogated by all of the officers as to why I ran from the first officer and I replied "I was scared". I was then put in hand cuffs and pushed into a police vehicle. I was never told that I was under arrest or read my rights but still was taken to the police department where I was told after I sign the documents placed in front of me that I would be free to go. Then I was told that I would have to post bail or go to jail until my court date. I posted bail and was allowed to leave.
