This woman is charged with a felony Code 18.2-111, Class O

This woman is charged with a felony Code 18.2-111, Class O on the court web site. Not much is said on how much she was accused of embezzling. She has a history of racking up debts and then filed for bankruptcy. She did not pay her elderly landlord 20K in rent and then filed for bankruptcy. Will the judge take into consideration of the 20K lawsuit her elderly landlord sued her but could not get paid because she claimed bankruptcy. How can this elderly landlord contact the court to make them aware that this woman is up to no good. She basically took 20K of retirement money from this elderly woman.

The Managing Member of the company I manage (14 investors in

The Managing Member of the company I manage (14 investors in the LLC) has taken increasing amounts of cash through a draw and cash withdrawls bank account over the last 4 years (this year he ended up taking over 10% of our gross income, over $100,000). The IRS is after him for taxes he owes on a separate failed business and will no longer let him take a draw (because he is not paying income tax on it?) so he established an INC and business bank account that neither I, nor our book keeper, have access to--he is putting money in this account to pay himself a management fee (I only know he is taking it for his own pay because our payroll company accidentally mailed his check stub to me) So far this year he has taken more 25% of our gross income. He said he established the INC because "transparent books make him uncomfortable". He also said he is paying off his personal debt with our income because it would be inconvenient to our investors if he was sued and we need to "make him whole again". We are past due on rent and insurance and payroll bounces every month. I am not sure if this is legal and what my responsibility is as far as informing the other investors.

My Father died in 2014 he left his estate to my brother and

my Father died in 2014 he left his estate to my brother and I. My brother thinks he should have everything because he is single and its all he has, He has been living with my parents all his life. The trust states it is to be divided. He wants me to sign it all over to him. If I don't sign he cant put the house in his name. What will happen with the house if it isn't sold or re- titled? Home has no mortgage. We told him he can live there free until he dies as long as he pays the property tax. He basically took all my fathers insurance money that was meant to be split. He was the executor and never did final accounting. Can he loose the house to the government if we leave in my dads name until one of us passes. He won't return calls or letters we have sent.JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IdahoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: What do you mean? social security yesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: NO

There is a bit to this question. A while back when i was a

there is a bit to this question.A while back when i was a minor i was criminally charged as an adult for financial related crimes. I served my time and have been clean for almost 10 years.Within the last 3 years my father and I were going to start a business, he put money down on a car, and we opened up a bank account, etc. Later through his verbal permission I opened a credit card account. The card has been paid on time, and maintained for the last three years. The business did not go through because my father pulled the plug, however i continued to make payments on the automobile which is now paid off and the credit cards which i only owe about 5k. My question is this. In the event I want to stop paying for these credit cards, and send my father a certified letter stating i am no longer going to pay them, can i get in trouble? could he possibly go to the police and lie and say he never authorized them? I am worried because he is unstable and thats the same reason i am going to seperate lives, and contact. But i don't want police involvement. Does he have any recourse?
