  • Hello. My wife was terminated as a substitute (part-time) employee

    Hello. My wife was terminated as a substitute (part-time) employee by a local school district, for whom she had been working as a nutritional services worker (in hopes she might get a position as a special education or media assistant sub, and for which she had already scheduled training) without any specific grounds. The word "misconduct" was not mentioned. They claimed they investigated an incident that occured on May 17, in which my wife was leaving her job at a local middle school and (in front of the secretarial staff) picked up a bicycle helmet and walked out to her car, thinking it was a "donation pile," i.e. a bunch of unclaimed items that had been in lost and found for so long the school was just giving it away. There was no sign indicating it was supposed to be picked up by the owners, just an unmarked table outside the school office. My wife has worked as a preschool teacher for 13 years and has a degree in education, and would never knowingly "steal" an item she thought belonged to a student or would be claimed by someone, and more to the point: at the school she taught at, that was exactly what they did with items that were unclaimed for more than 30 days (put them on a table for whoever wanted/needed them). My wife was approached while in her car (she was on her phone, not thinking she'd done anything wrong) by one of the secretarial staff at the school, and asked if she had a child who was a student at that school or in that school district. She replied that yes, she had, in fact, four children in that school district. When the lady explained that this was a lost and found item intended to be claimed by the owners, my wife immediately gave the helmet back and apologized profusely for the mistake. The secretarial staff then called the HR department, where the supervisor for operations supposedly conducted an investigation into the matter, and subsequently terminated her employment with the district, which also impacted her unemployment benefits (she had been making substantially more as a teacher, of course). What rights does she have and will someone come to her defense please? This is a school district: part of the public trust, and they have an obligation for due diligence, which I feel was not observed.
  • My daughter, 24, was arrested/ticketed, for buying beer for

    My daughter, 24, was arrested/ticketed, for buying beer for minors in a sting operation.
    1. the undercover officers clearly appeared to be of age and presented themselfs as workers on themselfs as workers on their way home from work with no ID and asked her to buy them a beer. she would have never have knowingly bought beer for a minor.
    2. at least 5 officers questioned her and the questioning became rather abusive. one officer, a motercycle cop had givin her a seatbelt ticket a few months earlier and another officer asked her about it asking if she thought the officer was good looking. she said she didn't remembre. so he said " so you thought he was HOT!" all the officers began to laugh. she saaid no he had on a helmet. so he said "so you thought he was uglu then!" more laughter. then rhe was asked if she was ever arrested. she said no. one officer got in her face and said loudly "aer you sure!" she said yes. he then said "for PROSTITUTION!" she said no. well he sai you sure look the part!. all the officers gota big belly laugh out of that. by now my daughter was crying.
    3. my daughter has contacted the courthouse to get an extention on her may 15 court date so she can save enough money to pay the ticket. this happenr on march 15 so it should be available for viewing but they can find no record of it. she has no idea what she owes and on the phone all they can tell her is show up for your court date.
    QUESTION
    with the abusive action of the police and the court being unable to even locate the record of her ticket do you think my daughter should talk to an attorney?
