Zoey, We spoke last evening. I am the one who accidentally

Hi Zoey,We spoke last evening. I am the one who accidentally threw away the ring which was found at work. Please, feel free to bill this as a new question if necessary.I was concerned about current circumstances - but I neglected to ask you exactly what is possible if they decide I was at fault. You did mention I could be liable to the owner - but what does this mean??I am an ordinary middle-class working person - with no real experience with the legal system. . . . and no significant resources. Since I was dismissed from work due to the incident - I have even less until I find another job.Do I have to pay her back? How? Will I have a record? Do I have to go to jail?!! Community service? I have no experience with this type of problem.Best and worst case scenario would be appreciated.Thank you again for your valuable time and patience.

I had a small furniture store back in 2010. A client

I had a small furniture store back in 2010. A client purchased furniture. I ordered it and placed a deposit on the furniture. I then tried to follow up with the furniture company BUT they would not return my phone calls. Months went by and the client wanted their furniture. It was a 6k order. The husband of the client did not want the furniture and I recall the wife complaining about such. It is my believe the husband intervened and someone told the furniture company not to take my calls. It was a VERY small company in NY that build the furniture custom orders. I was then sued by the client. At the court hearing my attorney told be to agree with a settlement in that I would pay $1k per month to pay it off. I would receive a summary offence for disorderly conduct and 6 months probation unsupervised. I agreed and paid off the fines. Recently a friend of mine is in Jail and he said I could not visit him because the Jail said I had a criminal record. I remembered by attorney saying this was just Disorderly conduct summary charge and he said "NO BIG DEAL" like getting a drivers ticket. I Then pulled my files that I had and not until now I noticed Theft by Deception on the paperwork. The first paper on the attached file I signed right away. I saw Theft scribbled on it but my attorney said that "no, the charges are Disorderly conduct" which you can see is scribbled on the paperwork. Now on the other more formal paperwork I do NOT even see disorderly conduct. It just has Theft by deception -False impression and Theft by fail to make req disp funds. So now I am wondering. Did my attorney mess up? Can I get this expunged? Date of charges is 2010. Court Hearing and charge was 2012.

A woman, whom my husband and his friend met at a party,

A woman, whom my husband and his friend met at a party, submitted a victim report against the friend. The friend got a call from police a week ago to make an appointment for investigation. He went to police, and was arrested after an investigation, and then took to the court and charged. The friend told my husband, based on what he heard from the detective, that another woman, whom my husband met at the party, submitted a victim report against my husband, alleging forcible touching. My husband had not got a call from police as of last Thursday, and he has been abroad from last Thursday for his work. He had turned off his cell phone from Thursday to Wednesday, so he is not sure he got a call from police during that period. Other than that period, he is sure that has not got a call from police. My husband is not US citizen. He is staying in NY with VISA. He does not have any criminal records. He is over 20 years old. My husband does not need to be back to the US, but he strongly wants to be back.1. How likely will my husband be arrested at the airport when he comes back to the US in one or a few weeks? (Especially in the case where police has called my husband after last Thursday, but my husband did not notice it because he is abroad)2. (In a case he enters the US safely), after he comes back to NY, if police call my husband, is it possible for my husband to go abroad before going to police office?3. If my husband call the detective and ask whether they have a plan to call my husband, and the detective answers they have no plan to do so, is this detective's statement reliable?
