I am going to school in hopes of becoming a PA. Recently I applied for a couple of jobs and was denied employment. The employment isn't related to becoming a PA.

I put a person in prison 16 years ago larceny

I put a person in prison 16 years ago for multiple larceny and forgery charges. He eventually relocated out of state after he finished his term and paid partial restitution. A friend recently showed me a website for a business in Sarasota, FL, where he is now a partner. But his biography on the business website is a complete fabrication, and I suspect he's up to his old tricks again by deceiving the public and his business partner. I want to mail to his business partner a summary of publicly available information (arrest warrants, mugshots, my communications with our state's victim services unit, etc.) to warn his business partner of his true past. Should I be concerned about any harassment or libel charges being brought against me for doing this? I want this to be a one-time correspondence intended for viewing by a single individual, his business partner.

I may be getting charged (not sure if that's the correct term)

I may be getting charged (not sure if that's the correct term) for misappropriation of company property (fraud, larceny, embezzlement not sure which applies). I know there was a large contingency of my old company in a meeting to today at a customer that would've been affected and people I know there have been oddly quiet. I am out of state supporting my dad during a surgical procedure with my expected return home to be late Sunday night. My questions are if the result of this meeting was an intent to charge me, how/when will it happen? Police will serve me or arrest me? Police are actively pursuing me and I don't even know it? My wife and kids won't know anything about this. So should I immediately get home?Thank you for your help.
