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

My family and I were robbed at gunpoint... My family and I

My family and I were robbed at gunpoint...My family and I were robbed at gunpoint twice and nothing was ever done by the police department about it.Three young men with guns kicked in my door while we were home late one night. I was asleep, but my son was awake. The three stold my credit card. They forced my son into their car and told him if he didn't give them the correct pin number, they were going to kill him. They forced him in their car & down to the floorboard while they continued to stomp & beat him. Once at the bank, the used my card to withdraw the maximum amount allowed by the bank. They then went to a convenient store and bought alcohol. They drove my son far away from our home and said that they would murder his family if he called the police.Around 2 weeks later, the same 3 kicked my door in again. Forced us to the ground with guns. They kept saying if we didn't give them money that we were all going to die that night. While guns were pointed at my the back of my head, i could hear them hitting my son with their guns. At that time, I jumped up, almost sure i'd be murdered, and told them if they hit my son again, they would definitely have to kill me. The "leader" put his gun to my head and said, "Bitch you fixin' to die.The other two ransacked my house and stold all of my jewelry, cell phones, and other valuables in my house. They continued to hold us at gunpoint while threatening to kill us.This happened 2 times in a two-week period. The 3 robbers were captured on video at the bank as well as the convenience store. My landlord & i spoke to the police department detective several times. We were told that it was under investigation. After a few weeks, my son & I did a little investigating ourselves. We found out where they lived, tag numbers, and what they looked like. We also found out about the videos.It was never investigated by the police department, as we were told. The videos were never seen by any detectives, therefore our money was never returned by the bank. Our phone calls were no longer answered and everytime I went back to see about any progress, I was told it was still under investigation but detective "so-n-so" was not in.Both times the police were called and a report was made. We had to move away from there because we no longer felt safe. My landlord didn't think it was safe for us to be there either. My son and I have a hard time sleeping at night because of this. We were extremely traumatized.I went with my landlord to the police station several different times and every time was told it was under investigation. They never investigated the incidents as we were told. Nothing was ever done. Our police department failed us miserabley. Isn't that a violation of my civil rights? Doesn't my family & I have a right to feel safe & protected in our own home?
