Someone who lived with us robbed us blind and the police

Someone who lived with us robbed us blind and the police even have video of him selling the guns and my wedding rings but yet this person is still hasn't been arrested and is free to harass us and is telling everyone that he got one over on us. What can we do? Our understanding is if you steal a gun with the intent to sell it it is a federal crime.

I received a summons to appear in court for unlawful use of weapons. I unknowingly carried a nonlethal zap stick in my purse while working as a state nurse surveyor in my office which is a state office. I stayed in motels in different cities about our state and had it for personal protection, I do possess a FOID card.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, during the investigation by the state police, I waived my rights since I did have the zap gun in my purse during my first questioning by our state investigators. I didn't know it was illegal to carry. During my 2nd questioning by the state police, I waived my rights to have a lawyer present (probably a dumb move by me).JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I have never been charged with anything like this before. I have just retired after working as a state nurse for almost 30 years.

I pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge in

I pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge in 2006, served 18 days with an ankle monitor and had 3 years informal probation with another stipulation that I can't own a firearm for 10 years. I served my probation without violation and will complete my 10 year gun ban on Oct. 27th of this year without any violation of probation or gun ban. How long do I need to wait to purchase a firearm?JA: Our average wait time is under 20 minutes. Sometimes it takes just a minute. More complicated questions that need more research might take an hour or two. I'd be happy to chat with you while you wait. The stories I've heard working here...Customer: My conviction was in Redding,CA.. I live in Atlanta, GA. now.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: The charge was originally a felony assault with the intent to cause serious bodily injury. I was falsely accused so I hired a private investigator and hired the guy who trains the DOJ to administer polygraphs and passed that with no problem. My PI brought forward tons of evidence showing I couldn't have been the perpetrator, but the DA wouldn't dismiss the charges and I didn't have the money to keep paying a lawyer and PI during a trial. The DA finally lowered the charge to a misdemeanor assault likely to cause bodily injury based in their words as "lack of evidence".JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Only a brief conversation with a legal assistant on the phone.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Only that I've never before or since been in any kind of trouble with the law.

My daughter completed a drug court program over a year ago.

My daughter completed a drug court program over a year ago. She is on probation but does not have to report or do drug testing. About 2 months ago she relapsed twice with meth. That is it. She regrets it. Her husband threatens hair follicle if she leaves him. I told her to go to probation officer and confess the relapse. Get free of her biker husband who brought guns and other felons into the house with her and kids. Will she be arrested if she confesses to relapse? She can pass drug test just not hair follicle. He keeps threatening her. I think she needs free of his threats and just confess to P.O. of her own free will. This is in Missouri
