While my husband and I were separated but trying to work

While my husband and I were separated but trying to work things out and dating, he used to send me naked pictures. We were together trying to work on the marriage (or that was what I was made to believe for over 1.5 years). One day I was talking to his sister and she was asking me questions about her brother and I told her we were dating and working things out and getting together. Well she asked me for proof of those texts and some of those pictures as proof. Well, I screenshot some texts and I think I sent her lower body naked pic as proof (I didn't understand why she was asking me but I found out later on that it was because he was with another woman at the same time). Would that a considered dissemination of pictures and a felony? I did not publish them or threaten anyone with them or threaten or make them public. I was wondering if he could file charges against me for sending it to his sister? This was done over 1.5 years ago and he knew about it at that time.

Charged with aggravated assault & arrested by NJSP. Spent 75

Charged with aggravated assault & arrested by NJSP. Spent 75 days in jail waiting to be indicted. While there a TRO was placed against me and I went to the hearing and although the plaintiff and witness testified against me the judge said the charges weren't substantiated and threw them out. After that the grand jury remanded the case to the municipality. I've been to court 3 times (although county provided a public defender the municipality would not) asked for a dismissal through the prosecutor but he shook his head. I'm ready to defend myself but the plaintiff and witness are my son-in-law and wife. They both don't want to testify against me at this point. What can we do?

California: Saturday morning, Sept 3, @ approx 4:00am I

California: Saturday morning, Sept 3, @ approx 4:00am I awoke to a loud noise. After investigating the inside of the house, I looked out a bedroom window and saw a man hiding beneath the window on the outside. I set off our alarm and told him to "get out of here!" My wife called the police. I checked our security camera footage and have on video two males trespassing (our entire house is surrounded by a fence) near our outside air conditioning unit. Male #1 lifted male #2 onto our pergola (where male #2 goes off-camera) giving him access to the window where I later found him. After a quick search of the neighborhood, the police picked up male #1 and identified him from my video. They cited him with P.C. 602 and made me fill out a citizen's arrest form; male #2 has not been identified or found. Why was male #1 not charged with attempted burglary? If male #1 didn't have warrants he would have been cited and released and not arrested. Do we have any recourse?

In june I was thrown out of a 2 story window by a man who

in june I was thrown out of a 2 story window by a man who has a lot of mental issues. I spent many months in hospitals and nursing homes. I am still disabled from that. Afterward when I was discharged I tried to file a police report but the police said there is a report and the paramedics stated the suspect admitted that he held me hostage in his apartment but I allegedly jumped out of the window. I was not conscience. This was a lie. I had to have emergency surgery at the time of the incident. The hospital acknowledged that my safety was in jeopardy. He stole my purse my rent money my cell phone.This same person went to another town where I lived and filed a small claims against me for $3000.00 the judge ruled in favor of him because I cannot drive and was unable to attend the hearing.Where do I stand now at this time?

if a prosecutor states they will contact my lawyer prior to any grand jury hearing he believes would result in an indictment what's that mean? How would he know prior to and grand jury hearing if there would be an indictment? Also if he's still presenting evidence to the grand jury wouldn't he need to request things from my business or witnesses from my business?
