I currently volunteer for a non profit corporation. They
I currently volunteer for a non profit corporation. They have said I broke hippa privacy law. They have had a board meeting & it's in their board minutes, recording that they state I broke hippa & have since banned me from chaperoning students. They have never taken a statement from me, checked the medical book, or interviewed any of the other parents I volunteered with. With out this non profit doing an investigation wouldn't it be considered slander against me to say I broke a law & disapline me without any evidence or facts? If so what steps should I take to clear my name. Or if it's not slander and the non profit corporation can just say I broke the law & they aren't willing to back it up with an investigation or facts , what should I do to clear my name? Could I make a complaint to the state attorney's office?
This is my first time doing this so here it goes, My husband
Hello, this is my first time doing this so here it goes, My husband is currently encarcerated in a south texas prison, his original conviction was in 2008 he recieved a sentence of 99 years x3 for 3 convictions of aggravated sexual assault of a child younger than 14 . he spent 4 years in a maximun security prison, in2012 his attorney won oral arguments due to the judge not letting his family in the courtroom stating there was no room in the courtroom whenthere was, our court appointed attorney was at least smart enough to take pictures of the courtroom, his case was overturned he was released. had a retrial in 2912 with only 1 charge, we had a bench trial with the same judge and same DA with the stipulations that his max sentence would be 45 years we had a probation officer contact us as well as my family and my neighbors with good responses from all, he was told he was at a very low risk for recitivism(spelling may be wrong) when we had the bench trial the judge gave him 45 years our appeals have been exhausted.
