My wife and I separated and were in the process of divorce.

My wife and I separated and were in the process of divorce. I was in business with her brothers and brother in law. She got together with them and asked them to buy me out and give her the money, they did. She then used a POWER OF ATTORNEY from 2002 that was intended tor her to use when I traveled, to sign my name and deposit the money in her account. They never notified me that they were buying me out and I didn't find out until the final court order for the divorce, the sale was included in the paper work for her disclosure part of the action. WHAT CAN I DO TO RECOVER SOME OR ALL OF MY MONEY.JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Criminal Lawyer.

I am a member of a non-profit organization. We just became a

I am a member of a non-profit organization. We just became a 501c3 org. A CPA determined our former Treasurer embezzled ~$47,000 from ~2010-2015. We had insurance and were reimbursed $41,000. Our BOD is not reporting it to the Police because they claim they are afraid our former treasurer or her employer will sue us for slander or restraint of trade. We were told it was reported to the FBI - despite the fact the FBI does not look into claims of less than 250K. My questions: 1) Please evaluate the fear of facing financial damages from reporting this to the Police, 2) If our former Treasurer re-offends could her future victims seek financial damages from our organization because we did not report it properly or does an online entry to the FBI tip line get us off the hook? 3) Could future victims also seek damages from each BOD member directly?

23 y/o future son-in-law "A.D.", lives here in North

23 y/o future son-in-law "A.D.", lives here in North Carolina. No prior criminal record. Part-time college student. Worked in a retail store for four years- started as sales associate- worked his way to Asst. Manager. Was fired in January 2016 and arrested for fellony embezzlement for allegedly giving unauthorized discounts. A.D. did not gain anything financially from this. A.D. hired criminal attorney, paid $5k to lawyer. A.D. had one court date with his attorney and the DA offered A.D. a plea (as opposed to going to full trial) to have charges reduced to lesser charge. A.D. was put on probation, and was told to repay $40k in a year or potentially go to prison for one year. A.D. says another paper he signed had indicated he had 39 months to pay instead of one year. Why would the court/judge give someone with no job a year to pay back 40k in restitution to the company? Does this sound reasonable? Does his attorney need to ask for a more reasonable/realistic period of time to pay back the $ to the company? Wondering what best option is at this point to either go back to court or request a longer period of time to repay 40K?

I may be getting charged (not sure if that's the correct term)

I may be getting charged (not sure if that's the correct term) for misappropriation of company property (fraud, larceny, embezzlement not sure which applies). I know there was a large contingency of my old company in a meeting to today at a customer that would've been affected and people I know there have been oddly quiet. I am out of state supporting my dad during a surgical procedure with my expected return home to be late Sunday night. My questions are if the result of this meeting was an intent to charge me, how/when will it happen? Police will serve me or arrest me? Police are actively pursuing me and I don't even know it? My wife and kids won't know anything about this. So should I immediately get home?Thank you for your help.
