My boyfriend has stolen 17,000 of student loan money from me

My boyfriend has stolen 17,000 of student loan money from me I'd like to discuss that in another session to stay on track. I also have reason to beleive he has stolen my prescription medications. I am trying to wean my self off of adderall. I feel it's not a true assessment of myself. I've epressed this to him constantly. To keep me a drug induced zombie easily controlled, he would always encourage my taking it, feigning concern that I am not "acting" right, thus inducing insecurity and paranoia. This was one of the reasons why he threw me out, I had refused, never deviating from a strict regimen I composed to decrease dosage with each taking until prospectively no more. All in all, having adult add, they were helpful, Hence I kept a considerable amount left over from old scripts in the glove compartment making sure in their labeled bottles. I did this for two reason, first to refrain from my own urges that could threaten my very well kept regime and secondly, he and his friends sell all types of drugs, being in a college town, he would become frustrated with my unwillingness and having a criminal mind resolved to benefit somehow. He never let up on trying to convince me to allow him to sell my pills from prior scripts that I had accumulated and took on a pen basis. I was very prod of this stash because it represented control of myself, that he so often attempted to rob me of. I refilled my recent prescription on the on the 11. Since I lived in a home with 5 children and just out of need to retain personal information, I would take my days amount 4 pills, taking two twice daily. The remainder was locked in my glove compartment. Everything except what I had on me has disappeared. He was the only one known to have a key to my car. I would like to recover my medicine by way of police report. I am afraid he may figure this out and hurt me, I know it was him as he's been following me everywhere. I see him somewhere far off no matter where I go. I'm getting a protective order my apt tomorrow. Thinking I could let this one go, since I was planning a slow ween off, I resolved not to involve myself in thisHowever, I am having second thoughts, sudden withdraw has left me foggy brained and not conducive to mu many endeavirs. I'd like my medications replaced, my doctor needs a police report for this, how can I file one with such little proof

My friend is charged with Larceny over $250. The value of 2

Hi, my friend is charged with Larceny for shoplifting over $250. The value of 2 shirts are about $350. He has never had any prior arrests or any criminal record. He works extremely hard for 10 hours a day 6 days a week, he has built up his credit score from a score of 550 back in college just 8 years ago to a score of 750 now. He paid everyone on time. His employer trusts him with cash and checks of thousands of dollars being handled by him at the place of work every day. The day he was accused of shop lifting, he was rushing to buy a couple of shirts and run to his family's dinner gathering. His doctor had prescribed him Tramadol for Tennis Elbow and he took tramadol that night. He also had bought a shirt 2 days prior to this incident and he wanted to replace that with the new shirts. At the shop he noticed he left the shirt in his car, so he had to run to the car and bring the shirt. The combination of few factors which include rushing to the dinner party, thinking of going to his car get the shirt and come back to buy the new shirts and pay for them, and maybe Tramadol which causes anxiety in some users could have contributed to his absent mindedness and mistake that caused the incident. Does he have a good defense? This is in MA.
