A and are former relational partners who are now disputing

A and B are former relational partners who are now disputing ownership of their dog. A funded the dog's purchase, vet bills, food and general upkeep. B was the one who picked up the dog and supposedly signed 'papers' with the seller. In several written communications both A and B refer to the dog as 'theirs.' Now that they have split up, A is keeping the dog at her house, since B went to stay with his father whose landlord does not permit pets. However, B is not happy with how A is keeping the dog. B went to A's house against her explicit request to stay away and took the dog. He feels confident that he can claim ownership with the 'papers'. The dog isn't a registered breed but in addition to not being allowed in his father's apartment, it is an illegal breed in the state that B took the dog to. What can A do to reclaim the dog? Has B committed anything criminal?

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person who has been arrested and charged with child cruelty? My step daughter spanked her 4 year old and it was video taped. I have not seen the video, but I was told the spanking was excessive. Bond was posted and paid on Monday, September 12 and I have been told every day this week the sheriff has not slowed down long enough to view the video. Therefore, the sheriff is continuing to hold her in the county jail. My step daughter is a first time offender and has never been in trouble, not even a speeding ticket. Can you please give me some advice. Oh, and I have been told by the public defender's office the sheriff is the one who decides on a court date. Is this true?

Prostitute lied my son tried to kidnap her. He was arrested

My son was arrested due to being lied on by a prostitute. She said he tried to kidnap her and had a gun but no gun was found, and rob her. What are his chances. If she doesn't show up for court or found lying what will happen to my son.This happened in California.I have not talked to a lawyer yet.He does have a prior record in which I pray doesn't get held against him. Bail is 1,000,000.00. He goes back to court on 9/16. There were no marks on her. He said she jumped out of the car in front of the police and started saying this. He didn't try to run and co-operated with the police. But still was taken into custody. They didn't even read his rights until he got to jail.

I had an argument with this ex boyfriend on-line and I got a weird call from a Texas detective telling me to call him regarding a criminal complaint filed against me?! I live in San Diego, CA and have not seen this person for years! He is a womanizer and cheated on me and I'm guessing he has many women angry with him! This is a frivilous complaint, is it okay to ignore it or what should I do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: He is in Texas and I am in California! He filed some sort of harrassment/cyber complaint against me I'm guessing. I have not threatened him or done anything tell him off on-line! It's crazy!JA: Have any charges been filed? If so, what?Customer: I don't think so. All I know is that he filed a Criminal Complaint against me. For what I do Not know!
