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.

I have an arrest larceny (please not guilty) but was charged

Hello,I have an arrest for felony larceny (please not guilty) but was charged with misdemeanor trespassing (plead guilty). I am filling out at job application that asks the two questions:1) Have you ever been convicted or found guilty, regardless of the manner of adjudication, in any jurisdiction of the US of a misdemeanor involving moral turpitude, sexual offense, drug distribution or physical injury within the past five years there being no appeal pending therefrom or the time for appeal having elapsed? Any plea of nolo contendere shall be considered a conviction.2) Have you ever been convicted or found guilty, regardless of the manner of adjudication, in any jurisdiction of the US of any felony there being no appeal pending therefrom or the time for appeal having elapsed? Any plea of nolo contendere shall be considered a conviction.I think I can answer no, to both, but wondering if I should meet with a local Employment or Criminal attorney?

My question involves the state of. I have a friend who owns

My question involves the state of Virginia. I have a friend who owns an automobile restoration business. He recently was arrested for obtaining money under false pretenses and grand larceny. Apparently he took deposits and hasn't done any work and still has the vehicles and money. I heard that he was arrested for pretty much the same thing a year ago, so if he's on probation I understand that these new charges would make it a probation violation - am I correct? And this would lower his chances of getting bond this time? I'm not EXACTLY sure what is going on, and I think the less I know the better off I am...but here is what leads me to your website: he requested that I contact a few of his customers and tell them he is out of town due to an emergency with his mother and will contact them as soon as he returns (his bond hearing is scheduled for the 7th of July, and the chances of him getting out are not so great). If he does not get out on bond and his customers find out where he is (which it's only a matter of time as far as I can see), can I then be charged with lying to his customers? Is there ANYTHING that can happen to me legally? I don't have a good feeling about doing this but for some reason felt I needed to see if my gut instinct is correct.

My relative was arrested yesterday (total around $150). She

My relative was arrested yesterday for shoplifting (total around $150). She is not poor at all and had no reason to steal but she went to the store picked up few items she liked wanted to pay for it but out of a sudden decided to press the elevator button to go out instead of going to the cash register which is just next to (after) the elevator with the items in her bag. She is an immigrant student (experienced professional outside the US) works part time and lives with her sister so no personal expenses at all. Her sister is paying her college fee too that she will have to return with no deadline, so no interest no stress of paying high interest an deadline. Its unbelievable what happened there.She could have walked to the cash register (that she told she was planning to with items in her bag....) after she prssed the elevator button she wanted to fix her thought of leaving and then pay for the items and then leave but before she could do that tore security folks came by and asked her to come with them. When she told them she was going to pay for the items they didn't believe and sad she was lying. They also said they have on Camara that she shoplifted in April. Not sure if that happened or if they have that coverage that shows clearly she left without paying or they are just saying that. She had 4 tops and 2 dresses in the bag... I am sure she would have paid...she also said she was going up at the entrance to meet her sister as she was coming to the store to see the items she had selected with the baby and there is no cell phone signal at all in the store. She was shocked when she saw police their in 5 minutes and they didn't let her call her sister. They arrested her and told her she will have to go the police station first and then only she can call anyone. So this was all the bizzare incident.She is an immigrant student spending loads of money on her masters doing a part time job at the same university, no reason for stealing, what would you suggest should be the next step. She was released in less than 2 hours with a desk appearance ticket for Aug 11th. I she is found or proved guilty it's going to impact her whole life negatively and all the effort and hard work she has done till date will go waste due to this incident. This obviously is a first time arrest and we are hoping to get a dismissal and sealing of records so that this doesn't show up on her background check while applying for jobs or green card etc. Please suggest the best way to get the dismissal and sealing of record as if never happened.This has to be sealed/ plunged (not allowed in NYC) so sealed else her life is ruined. need detailed response / help ASAP with step by step process we should follow and anything you want to tell us to make the case stronger for dismissal.
