I am from Louisiana. My wife and I were shopping in Walmart

I am from Louisiana. My wife and I were shopping in Walmart and we paid for our items at the self checkout. The cashier manning the self check out even helped us with some of our items because it was slow. We used the Walmart Pay app which is a digital payment and you get a digital reciept a few minutes later. As we were leaving the greeter asked to see our reciept. I told her it was on the app and continued.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: She then told my wife that she had to see the reciept. My wife told her that it was digital and that we couldn't provide one. The greeter then turned to some plane clothed loss prevention person and told them that we were "walking out with merchandise" this man approached me aggressivly and to be honest scared me because he never identified himself. i thought this large man was about to attack me. he told me that i had to go back in the store. I told him I wasn't. He said he was going to call the cops I told him he could I then proceeded to my car. While I'm loading my groceries he read my license into the phone as if he was on the phone with the police. Not sure if he actually called.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: My wife stayed at the door because it was raining. By this time quite a few people were staring. My wife told the greeter that she didn't appreciate what she was insinuating. The lady said "I don't appreciate what you're insinuating either"JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My wife then said "What?" and the lady said "You know what you're doing..." she pointed at my wife and said "you know". This was in front of people.

Involved in a legal case over a retaining wall. Just

Involved in a legal case over a retaining wall. Just discovered a hidden camera placed on a tree at the border (could be on neighbors lot) facing the wall from above. This is a remote area and there are no homes near mine. No neighbors. Surrounded by forest. I looked at the camera (still photography) simm card and it had images of me behind my home. I suspect the defendant put it there. Is that legal? Nothing to hide but could he use the images in court? Will check with my attorney but curious now.

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.
