I am a sex offender convicted back in 2000 for child

I am a sex offender convicted back in 2000 for child molestation for indecent exposure in Georgia, visiting Baltimore Maryland for cancer treatment. I did finish probation and I supervision. I did registere within three business days. I though I had 7 days, I misread the Maryland law. I did, however, registered at Towson police department. I was inquiring about sheriffs role in this since I fall under transient status. I am a disabled veteran hoping work it out with the VA oncologist at the Baltimore VA hospital the option to be treated at the Johns Hopkins Oncology clinic in the near future. Concerning the felony, I made a terrible mistake while as a service member in Army while stationed in Georgia. I know this and I understand I will probably pay the piper for the rest of my life. Having said all this, I was just trying to understand the Maryland law better, and how the sheriffs part is in all this. I just received a call from Sheriff Best and that he will be visiting my brother and sister-in-law house some time in 2 weeks. Thank you for your time.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: I came from Hawaii for cancer treatment. I was convicted of child molestation because according to my lawyer, Georgia has not tiers or categories for sex offense so all offender convicted in Georgia with a minor under the age seventeen is placed in same category with the other sex offenders.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NopeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just hope I get clarity on the sex offender law in Maryland, not here to be problem. I hope to receive cancer treatment at Johns Hopkins oncology clinic and I will move out of the state of Maryland.

This is a district of columbia civil case. I represent Plaintiff. Causes of action include intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault, battery, negligence, false imprisonment/arrest by private security guards of Apartment Complex. With regard to negligence Defendant states that a standard of care has not been established since an Expert has not been designated. It is my understanding that this is not true in all cases. Am I correct? Could you cite some cases in DC or regulations that would help me? Thank you. Time is of the essence.

Are you under attorney-client privilege in this

Are you under attorney-client privilege in this conversation?JA: No. I'm the Lawyer's Assistant.Customer: How can I be assured that the information will not be miss-used or exposed inappropriately?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: californiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: yes. I sent a letter to the CA nursing home licensing board with a copy to CANHR regarding the "false imprisonment" of my dad (took 4 paramedics to get him on the gurney) and am currently in Probate Court to obtain conservatorship which seemed the fastest and best way to protect him going forward.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have been told by his court-appointed attorney that I am in the wrong venue and that the issues of elder abuse and powers of dementia require another court action ... so they were not aggressively pursued. However, I now discover the concept of "Res Judicata" which requires that we address all of this now in an aggressive manner ... need to go to trial and to obtain a more aggressive litigator.
