Recent Grand Larceny questions

I had given a deposit to a landlord lease of an apartment.

Hello,I had given a deposit to a landlord for the lease of an apartment. We signed a lease agreement and established a move-in date. A deposit of one month's rent was given.The Landlord sent me a note a week later and indicated that they will be selling the place and further indicated that my deposit will be returned promptly. After two weeks of follow up and no check, the Landlord indicated that she would re-send the check via certified mail and also subtract $100 from the total amount ($50 for cancelling the check, and $50 for re-sending (the nerve!). After one week, no check. Now I cannot get a return call from her. Given that the deposit was for $2,650, is this considered grand larceny? Is this best-handled in small claims court? Is this a felony?

My 14-year-old male neighbor invited me into the apartment

My 14-year-old male neighbor invited me into the apartment where his family resides, to discuss a grand larceny with his aunt. I am not a professional in law enforcement. When I started to ask her some questions, the 14-year-old unexpectedly grabbed me from behind, spun me around, and threw me to the floor. At that point, would I have any legal right to then hit the 14-year-old boy or to further engage him in a physical altercation with impunity?

Loren, Wanted to let you know my brother is home and

Hello Loren,Wanted to let you know my brother is home and so far so good.Another question - i know some one arrested for grand larceny in NY - taking cash from a person.At arraignment the DA asked for a year " because of an 11 year old felony in Florida".Loren can prior bad acts be used now for something that was settled and sentence completed. Now it seems that it is being used to punish again. If this was presented to a jury would they be allowed to hear about this? It was a completely different kind of charge.

Vicky operates a successful retail computer sales business

Vicky operates a successful retail computer sales business out of her garage. Vicky told Dan that she intended to go on vacation some days later. Dan subsequently informed Eric of Vicky's intended vacation and of his plan to take all of her computers while she was away. Eric told Dan that he wanted nothing to do with taking the computers, but told Dan he could borrow his pickup truck to carry the computers away.While Vicky was scheduled to be away on vacation, Dan borrowed Eric's pickup truck. Late that night, Dan drove the truck over to Vicky's house. When he arrived, he went into the garage by pushing a partially opened side door. Vicky, who had returned home early from her vacation, was awakened by a noise in the garage and went to investigate. As Vicky opened the door connecting the garage to the house she saw Dan loading computers into the back of the truck, she stepped between Dan and the Truck and yelled, "thief!"Dan pushed Vicky out of the way, ran to the truck, and drove off. He immediately went to his friend Fred's house where Dan told him what had just happened. In exchange for two of the computers, Fred allowed Dan to hide the truck behind his house.What crimes, if any, have Dan, Eric, and/or Fred committed?

If a person is at a casino and finds a wallet on the ground

HI, If a person is at a casino and finds a wallet on the ground and takes the money out and keeps it then leaves the wallet on the ground will they be arrested. It has been six days and a officer is calling to investigate what should the person say? I didnt think it was stealing if it was found. I know its not right to keep the money but There was drinking and not making the right moral decisions. What should we say when speaking to the officer?

My sister and I bought this house from my father in

My sister and I bought this house from my father in Winchester VA. He moved out and left everything behind (tools, furniture, everything). we are co owners on the mortgage. My aunt moved in and is paying my sister $200 per month, soon to go to $550 per month when she takes possession of a shed for her business. The bills were originally about $1400 per month and i have helped reduce some of them when i asked my sister to review the bills. She caught an attitude and gave me a bill for about $6000 "for the past 3 years". My aunt (Susan) is saying its none of my business what she pays my sister (Donna). I was thinking that whatever Susan pays would "come off the top of the bills" and my sister and I would split the difference. My questions are:1) can I count all of the manual labor: working on the cars, the yard, taking down trees, etc "against" the 'bill' she has presented if she files a warrant in debt?2) as none of the bills are in my aunts name could I evict her if I had to?3) I know i can allow anyone on the property, but can they spend the night or even move in without asking for permission?4) all property left behind by my father belongs to the new owner(s)... can she/I sell or give away anything without permission from the other?5) My sister has taken some of her belongings off of the property... but took my property also, on three separate occasions and is tampering/destroying my mail. All three instances (thefts) are each above $200 in value... which is grand larceny right?Edward Haberly. thank you for your time.

I let my daughter use my iPhone 6 valued at $800. Her father

I let my daughter use my iPhone 6 valued at $800. Her father took it away from her saying it is a form of discipline as to the reason she cannot have it. I have repeatedly asked for the property to be returned to me and he refuses. The phone is contracted in my name with no other authorized users on the account. I went to the police department in the city he lives in to file charges but they are acting as if he has a legal right to my property. Since then, I have reported the phone as stolen through my phone carrier. Can I file criminal charges against him for refusing to return my rightful property?
