Question to Legal Kal One last question in general -- though

Question to Legal KalOne last question in general -- though I am quite fearful--As a citizen hared by local authorities--I would like to file 7 complaint reports against the Sheriff's Department--Finding an attorney to stand by my side is quite difficult--I am 100% confidant my stance is objective and to fact and would never state any assumption including DA--only my recording that would substantiate three falsified reports-- Do you think Kal if all I state is fact I could take such steps alone.

OK. this might be a little too but bare with me please. I

OK. this might be a little too long but bare with me please. I met this guy (Bob) through a friend about 4 years ago. At the time we were talking or trying to talk. He told me he needed to borrow money for school and i gave him exactly $1600. Then he disappeared on me. I let the money go because I had no prove of him borrowing it and he planned it very well enough so I didn't know how to sue him and i was living with my family too so I didn't want the drama. So after 4 years I ran into him at a mutual friend graduation (the same friend who introduce us). So somehow Idk where he got my information from after a week of the graduation i checked my bank statment. And I saw two transactions that I didn't do. one was at a gasstation (for a dollar) and one was for a phone company $47. I called the phone company and they gave me the phone number that my card was charged for to pay for (it happened to be Bob's number). I told our mutual friend that Bob has stole my information and I was goign to the police. The mutual firend decided to talk to him and settle this between us. So I closed my bank card with a dispute. (Still to this day Bob doesn't admit that he stole any money from me, he never applogized or anything). But when the mutual friend talked to him he agreed to return half of the money he orginally borrwoed (I have this conversation on a phone recorded without their knowledge). Since I was there can I use this as evidence ??? And also What can I sue Bob with? just the fraud or the old money as all... and which court should I take it to? Civil or Criminal. I just need an explanation of things since Idk the law. And I do have text messages as well him denying to any money he borrowed from me and also not knowing what am talking about. Do I even have a case if i go against him. He said he will tell the police that I was his girl friend and I was the one who paid for him. (which doesn't make sense because we never had any interaction for years until this incident happened) No phone interaction or email or anything. He only has pictures from the graduation time.

I am previously active duty and an old coworker of mine has

I am previously active duty and an old coworker of mine has stolen my identity. He took advantage of me while I was pregnant.April 15 I get a phone call from paypal saying that I had charges unpaid. I told them I do not have a paypal, and they told me the info on the account.It had my name on the account.A fake email account that had my last name in it.My old address from when I lived on postThe place charged was;Best buy, a costume place, diapers.comIt totaled over $1000The person to send to was my coworkers name and his phone number was listed.Paypal did its own investigation and cleared me.I called the coworker and he denied having any deal with it, said it must be a mistake.Stupidly I let it go.In my defense my father had recently passed and I was having a baby. I did not want to believe my best friend could steal from me.After I had my baby my husband dad passed, and my husband left to go home. I stayed because I had a csection and did not want my newborn to travel from ny to al.My coworker came and helped because I had difficulty going downstairs.When my husband returned our $500 gift card was gone.Some time later I go to create a credit karma account and one is already created with my social. I click forgot password ***** it shows me a partial email.It looked a lot like the one from paypal. I went to the military police.They told me to get as much information as I can.A little before the paypal call I had recently had to close my card because someone was using it to pay their geico and sprint bill. The sprint bill was paid for three months before I noticed it. Their was two geico payments. They totaled over $1000.I call sprint and tell them my situation.I give them the card number to find out that my coworker's wife's name was on the bill.My investigator said he would check geico, but i have not heard back yet.So I pull my credit report.It has a bestbuy on there, and a confirmation number.I call bestbuy give them the number and they were able to tell me the purchases.XBOX 1 and 2 video games, that I have seen in his house, because we were supposed to be friends and I visited frequently.I go into bestbuy and create an account with them because my comp crashed, and found out that the account my coworker falsely created was still up. The fake email attached.I was able to delete the fake credit karma account with that email, and create an actual account.My question is what is he looking at for charges?I am not looking so much for revenge, but I do feel that he needs to be rightfully punished for other peoples sake that they do not fall into similar traps.Does the fact that he is in the military affect his sentence?
