My ex and I split up, they left my stuff in the garage to

My ex and I split up, they left my stuff in the garage for me to pick up,but forgot one item. I went into the house and got it. Later I ended up buying them one Bc I felt bad they didn't have one anyways. Now a year and a half later they are saying it was breaking and entering Bc they asked me not to enter the house. They are saying they have video evidence from next door neighbors and are threatening to take to police if I don't pay them 2200. If we both lived there but it was in her name would it be breaking and entering if I didn't steal anything? And how lond does she have before this runs out. It all just seems so bogus now.

Maryland has a fairly unique rule allowing private citizens

Maryland has a fairly unique rule allowing private citizens to approach a county court commissioner with an application for statement of criminal charges. I can find no statutory language stating that the complainant MUST be the victim of the alleged crime. Can a citizen of Maryland with intimate knowledge of the crime and substantiating evidence file an application for statement of charges under Maryland Law even though he is not the direct victim of these felony crimes? The victim is disabled, living in another state, but would like to see justice done before he dies.

I received a "Driving while Impaired" (not drunk) in

I received a "Driving while Impaired" (not drunk) in Michigan last week with an obstruction charge for not taking the breathalizer test. Both misdemeanors. I have 2 prior DUI,s in Florida , where I reside.. The last being in 1989. I am curious to know how this will play out in Florida against my license. Also , 3+ years ago I filed to have my civil rights ( now restored) and right to own a weapon restored ( still waiting for this part). I applied as I have a 3rd degree felony that came from trying to get a fake ID after not having a DL due to the DUI in 1989. As well , what do you think will happen to my clemency request? All tied together and have me worried.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: I received a "Driving while Impaired" (not drunk) in Michigan last week with an obstruction charge for not taking the breathalizer test.

My son, a school librarian, was convicted on solicitation of

My son, a school librarian, was convicted on solicitation of a minor via a computer on 4 separate counts...the prosecutor did everything possible to make him look like a creep as well as the state policeman. Her story changed and she had accused two people previously of similar behaviors. We were not allowed to present this. Is there anything we can do at the State of Appeals (we have a lawyer). Is there anything we can do to win or should we just count on him being in jail for the next 5 years. The judge was particularly harsh since he will not confess to this crime.
