My stepson pleaded guilty, in November 2015, to one count of

My stepson pleaded guilty, in November 2015, to one count of CSC 3 in Michigan (the other 5 counts were dropped). The plea deal involved that he plead guilty and in return he accepted a 1-15 year sentence with the possibility of parole after 1 year (he is currently incarcerated at a MDOC facility). Three computers and three cell phones were confiscated as evidence from his home. His wife had no knowledge of the crime.The State of Michigan sent him paper work threatening to seize 90% of his assests. His wife and two children are still currently living in the house. The house has about $30,000 in equity. They have essentially no other money or real property. But they do have $20,000 in credit card debt and a student loan.I loaned him $230,000 and he has repaid me about $103,000 of that from his 401K's.I live in Florida.1. Does the State of Michigan have any legal right to his assests?2. Is the money he repaid me in any jeopardy? The balance of $127,000 I had to refinance with my existing mortgage. (I have POA for him and a notorized promissory note for the $200,000 of the total amount).Ron

Trying to find info, and verify interpretation, about a new

Trying to find info, and verify interpretation, about a new law in NC about Doctor shopping and how that relates to drug trafficking. My daughter-in-law has been told that because she gets prescriptions from 2 Doctors - Primary doctor, than a referral - that she is "doctor shopping" and the fact that she drives the medications from pharmacy to home that she is "trafficking drugs". i believe she is being bullied by a deputy to say she will be going to prision. she has many medical issues: lupus, crohns and now a brain tumor. She is a 9 mos baby and is scared to death and doesn't know what to do. A Criminal Lawyer wants a $5,000 retainer which they don't have. Need some advice and it just doesn't seem realistic that they can compare her to a drug dealer

I am a foreign citizen and I have an arraignment the 18

Hi, I am a foreign citizen and I have an arraignment the 18 of December for possesion of marijuana over 35 grams. I got out on bond, and my questions are:Will I be able to leave the country before my arraignment?Will my upcoming arraignment show at the AirPort when leaving?My bail contract does not say anything about leaving the state or country, and no one ever told me anything about travel restrictions before getting out of jail.Iknow that a warrant for my arrest will be issued if I don't show up, but if Im already overseas and never plan on returning, I believe I can not be prosecuted unless prosecution will be done by my own nation(something I really would prefer), as my country do not extradite their own citizens.The most important thing here is; can someone at the AirPort stop me from leaving?Thanks

I have very strong evidence that an individual is living and

I have very strong evidence that an individual is living and working in the USA (NYC) for 11 years who is a Polish national, and who is in the USA illegally, with a long-expired tourist visa. In Poland this person has an extensive criminal record. Herein the USA, this person is engaged in obtaining fraudulently prescription drugs and then selling them to other people, with the help of a crooked doctor. This person is also engaged in other criminal activities, such as committing repeated perjuries againstother people in US courts, with the purpose of deliberately harming those other people. I want to report all of this to the authorities. I am thinking of going to the FBI, rather than Homeland Security or the Manhattan DA's office. What is your advice? Also,does it make sense to report this to more than one authority?
