I was convicted in 2011 of two counts of embezzlement they said I took nearly $6,000 from my job I did not do this but at the time I had cancer and my mother was dying and I was too sick to fight anything and had no evidence and a court appointed lawyer I plead guilty and have since struggled to pay the restitution it has been 5 years and I'm still paying on it due to just not having enough income to make $100 a month payments that they requested I was wondering if there was any way that I could have my restitution amount either converted to a judgement or somehow part of it could be modified I'm not in the best of health and the only job I could find was one that only paid $11 an hour and my bills outweigh my income

I own a trucking company and I have learned that one of my

Hello. I own a trucking company and I have learned that one of my drivers has been selling fuel for cash. This is an example of what happens: he will fuel someone else tank with approx. $350 worth of diesel fuel with my ComData/Fuel Card and the person buying the fuel from him, will give him $200 in cash. After going through the records, he has sold/stolen over $10,000 over the past 3 months.I am torn as to whether I should have him arrested and file charges or if I can withhold his last 2 paychecks. However, a friend of mine advised he that I cannot withhold his pay even if I know for sure he has stolen the money. the other concern is will it be worth the court costs pressing charges against him.these are the only two options that I see, but if someone can advise me of my actual options, that would be great.thank you,Ontaria

They will take over the contract and pay me starting in Nov. for the Oct. rent. My problem is L. Cramer still owes me for the August and Sept. rent that the renters pad them. No one answers my phone inquiries and I sent an email on Thurs. with no reply.

I am a minority partner in an LLC ATM business. My wealthy

I am a minority partner in an LLC ATM business. My wealthy business partner accused me of embezzling "up to $100,000" that he thought was "missing". He refused to use one account for load cash, and instead the wire transfers went to one of his personal accounts, to which I had no access, and so no way of knowing if any ATM load cash was missing(I emailed his accountant each morning, and asked her to transfer my expected load cash for the days ATM fills to our mutual Suntrust bank account).After accusing me of embezzling 100k, he filed criminal theft charges against me in several jurisdictions in Georgia, and then filed a 100k lawsuit against me. I was forced to retain an attorney and my bills are up to about $8k currently(atty is a friend of friend and agreed to 'work with me' on payments, since I live in a 1-BR apartment and can't pay him currently).I've been on the edge of anxiety attacks since June, when this started, and may have to move out of my apt if I can't find a job soon. He sent me text mssgs offering to drop the criminal and civil lawsuits if I: a)give up my 30% stake in the company b)pay him $13,000, and c) agree to stay out of the ATM business for five yearsJust wondering if I have a 'malicious prosecution' case? He also sent a text that said "don't make me ruin your life". I'm not sure of my options. Thank you for any information. ---Wayne
