I have been convicted of a misdemeanor of

I have been convicted of a misdemeanor for violation of restraining order. I took it to trial because it was not done intentionally and all I did was send a text message through our daughter to get a hold of me to discuss the kids. This was allowed per the RO. It specifically said that Contact allowed via text message only. she never provided a phone as ordered by the court. I had to communicate through our children. So Sad. I forgot to mention my wife is A COP and she convinced her colleagues to have me arrested after a hearing. The DA rejected her numerous attempts to have me violated I found this out in discovery when they turned over the file on me. She even called neighboring cities saying i crossed her path art the grocery store. Fast forward, I went to trial because a fabricated domestic violence charge was on me. They said I made threat to a 3rd party. The DA also rejected this case.Most could not believe they were pushing so hard. A jury of someones peers but not mine convicted me, Now my attorney will file an appeal. I think of numerous reasons for a mistrial or a reversal. Do I have to start my sentence immediately? Can I push my surrender date out at least a month or two to get my affairs in order?" I am going to ask for jail time because they want me to do way too much community service and fines and probation. Better try just do the time right? Lastly, can't I remain on bail during the appeal process? I have truly been railroaded on this case and I am considering calling a press conference because of my wifes abuse of Police Powers Malicious prosecution, and Police harassment. I this a good Idea? I really believe the jurors were not instructed by the judge properly. And the DA was playing with words trying to show I knew what i was doing was wrong. I sent a text message. I have work to do leading up to mid February. If I blow this gig it will ruin me. Please advisee Thank You I m due in court in 2.5 hours

What constitutes police harassment? As soon as I drive down

Hello,What constitutes police harassment? As soon as I drive down the block, or go someplace as a store, church, doctors appt.there's a cop driving by. There's always a cop watching my every move.Even when I go to another juristiction there's a cop either parked someplace or driving the oppissite direction. They can't tell me it's just routine patrol. I haven't committed a crime or broken any law I'm just minding my business. I feel I'm being stalked by people that are friends with these cops. I don't know how to prove it. I bought a dashcam for my car but I don't know if you can use it against them in the state of Illinois. Can you help me or steer me in the right direction?

I am trying to determine where the line is drawn for what is

I am trying to determine where the line is drawn for what is considered police harassment or violation of civil rights and what actions could possibly be taken. The police officers in my city have repeatedly been following and issuing tickets to my son, of the most ridiculous variety, almost once a week now. And they have told him, in person, they are following him. He feels singled out and I do not disagree with this. They have been issuing anything from "too wide of a turn" to "the 'dome' on the license plate light is missing". They also have no empathy towards the severe mood disorder my son has, and have made snide and nasty remarks about his hospitalization being "due to drug abuse" without knowing any specifics. They are now jeopardizing his mental health and making me personally afraid for even allowing my son out of the house, for fear of what they will "pull him over" for this time.

I have an issue with the police harassment that involves a

I have an issue with the police harassment that involves a woman that I worked with for about 2 yrs. I am married, but we became very good friends and I sent her emails hinting how I am feeling towards her. She said nothing to me after several attempts emailing her and hinting more that I am falling for you. No comment again even as we work close together until this one day where everything was clicking together I told that this is the happiest day of my life. She then tells that she has a boyfriend and we have been together for 6 months, she never said a word and her boyfriend was a recent co-worker. To shorten up the story I text ed her and told her how I felt to end the torment I was going through. She text me back saying "stop this ridiculous behavior and stop texting me". I replied "sorry for my behavior, I was getting mix signals from you, No contact, have a good life" I broke off all contact with her. Four months went by and now I had time to think about it and I had questions to ask. So I text her twice asking the question why you would do that to me, lead me on and not tell me about your boyfriend until it was to late and you new that. Next thing I get is a voice mail from the police to have no contact with her it is unwanted by this woman. And this officer left his business card in my front door that night. I sent another text to explaining that I have not harass her and wrote the law. The same Police officer again calls and leaves another voice mail to have no contact with her and call him with any questions. I sent two more text 16 days apart and this time I had a 2 voice messages, one on my home phone and my cell phone from a police detect telling that I am harassing her and to stop all phone calls and text messages to her. Later that night two patrol office come to my residence to tell me that I am harassing this woman, stop texting and calling her. Not once did I call her or wrote nothing that was threatening her life or safety, and security. She is also lives in another suburban city or different jurisdiction than me and is the neighbor hood watch contact in that city.I feel that I was harassed by the police and my privacy was violated. My wife is now involved and not happy, this was suppose to be a personal and private matter between us, but the woman I worked with never talked to me, not once throughout this fiasco. In stead she used the police to take care of the problem she created and didn't step up to the plate and explain to me why she would do that to me? What can I do?

I was pulled over on new years while driving home because my

I was pulled over on new years while driving home because my license plate light was out. After the officer ran my name and found out i am on probation he said he wanted to search me and my car, no big deal I know im clean and sober and not carrying anything i shouldn't. after he searched me he put me in his car to search mine and once again i wasn't worried one bit. see after going to prison I've really changed my life and I no longer do anything i know will get me in trouble again. It's just not worth it. Anyway, after searching my truck and coming up with nothing he comes back to the police car and opens my door and say's "I see you have a few drug charges on your record", and i replied " yes sir but that's all in the past and I haven't been high in over 2 years." and he asked me " so your not High right now?" And i told him once again " no i haven't done anything since going to prison" he continued to do a sobriety test on me which he said I was questionable on and proceeded to tell me how he really thinks that im under the influence of meth. By this time there are two other officers there and I'm getting upset then the officer feels my wrists for pulse rate and asks me "why is your pulse so high if your not" i replied by saying " you guys are starting to piss me off cause i know im sober and will prove it, take me to the station so i can give you my blood." Now i know the only reason they were being so difficult with me is because of my past record and the fact I'm on probation. When we get to the station they draw my blood and continue to tell me how im high. I really got mad about that and started telling them they were high if I'm high and the test results will prove that. One of the officers even said to me that if i just told them i was under the influence they wouldn't give me the DUI with which I responded " no I want my blood tested and when it comes back clean your gonna look like the idiot not me", and i said "if that's all I'd like to be released or have my cell so I can go to sleep." He said "that's how your gonna be" I said "yeah i have nothing else to say to you guys". They put me in the cell and came back about five minutes later saying how they called my P.O and she put a ten day hold on me. So i spent ten days in jail for nothing, So I have a couple questions, 1) Is there anyway the officers had access to my blood after they put me in my cell? And 2) When my blood results come back clean do I have a case for false imprisonment, police harassment, police profiling, my lost wages and damage to my reputation. I'm doing the best I've done in my life and the police where I live just wanna keep me down is how i truly feel about this.
