Then I was not being treated. we ran away crossing state lines when my parents said they were never going to let him speak to me again and we're going to throw him in prison forsatutory rape. Now I am 17 almost 18 in 3 months and he just. Turned 21. Is there anything I can do legally to have these charges dropped? My parents are pushing it and keep saying its up to the state, but they just want him to be punished.

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 have an ex boyfriend and his wife (I believe) who are

I have an ex boyfriend and his wife (I believe) who are responsible for filing a criminal complaint against me for cyber harrassment. 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! I had a Texas Detective leave me a VM asking him to call him regarding a criminal complaint that has been filed against me!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No but I would love to connect to the attorney. Thank you.

Over the weekend I was cited Assault / Disorderly Person. I

Over the weekend I was cited for Simple Assault / Disorderly Person. I was in an uber and the driver would not let us out after asking numerous times and kept laughing and driving. After about 15 min and repeatedly asking he finally pulled over. At this time I had shoved him and he hit his nose and had some bleeding. I was taken to the PD and processed. I plan to file a complaint against the driver as I felt threatened which led to my actions. Should I get a lawyer as well? Am I doing the right thing by filing a complaint for simple assault against the driver? I am in NJ.

Hey My name is***** was recently involved in a home invasion.

Hey My name is***** was recently involved in a home invasion. 4 men broke into my home with guns and pistol whipped, beat, kidnapped and robbed my girlfriend and I. They stole over $7000 in Merchandise which include designer shoes and electronics. I had to have emergency surgery to fix my jaw and reconstructive plastic surgery to fix the bones around my eye and a medal plate was put behind my cheek.The cops seem like they are dragging their feet and definitely don't seem like they are on my side trying to catch these guys. 4 xanax pills where found in the living room and the cops are trying to make it seemed like I'm a drug dealer and that is the reason they robbed our home, but the real reason is because I have a Jordan/Shoe collection worth thousands plus jewelry and they were jealous. Honestly I am not involved with any of that. I smoke weed and buy prescription pills in small amounts for personal use only.While I was in the hospital the lawyers question me and my girlfriend. I admitted to nothing but my girlfriend said "Well i remember only 1 time he brought pills for his roommate but that's it" and she did not write an official statement. Now the cops definitely think I had something to do with this robbery but its didn't at all. I just want to know what is my exposure. They only found 4 pills and nothing else. Since I have roommates they cant prove the pills are mine but with what my girlfriend said I'm afraid they are looking into me as well. Do I need a Lawyer. Is their a chance i can get arrested or charged for this. I'm the victim here but I'm worried and don't have money to retain a lawyer. Please Help
