I wanted to know how I can go about this case. I have

Hi I wanted to know how I can go about this case. I have someone who offered to help me out and buy me a car so I can get on my feet and provide for my family. Now things didn't go as planned and I was threatened more than various occasions that I would be kicked out and needed to leave. So I did I left with the car as well. Now the car title and registration and receipts are all under my name but the guy is threatening me that he is going to press charges and is going to charge me for forgery, fraud, and theft which none of it's true. What would be your best advice in this scenario?JA: Because consumer protection law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: It happened in CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No that's why I'm asking nowJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No just that

I was assaulted by an adult with autism and I was injured. I

I was assaulted by an adult with autism and I was injured. I was told by the police that I can't press criminal charges against the person that assaulted me but I could go after the parents that were with him in a civil case however the parents refused to give any personal information and lived out of state. Is there anyway I can make them responsible since they admitted to the police that they have been having difficulty controlling their adult son. He attacked me in a walmart knocking me the ground, shoved another person slightly thank youJA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: This happened in Mesa Arizona on Sunday April 16 at approx. 2pm. Police responded and I did file a police report and will be getting a copy, I can also request a video through the police to walmartJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I filed an assault report with Mesa, Arizona policeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that I was told by the police that his parents were not obligated to give any personal information but they did take the man in a paramedic truck to a hospital for mental evaluation, they said they were obligated to do that thanks

The girl sped off without getting out of her car. My friend

The young girl sped off without getting out of her car.My friend chased her down to a parking lot a few block away where she confronted her.The young girl refused to admit she was involved in the accident and refused to exchange information.Then my friend called 911 and a cop came and took statements of both parties.The cop told my friend that if she files charges against the young girl she will be destroying her life and suggested that she should just deal with the insurance companies instead. The cop told my friend not to worry as she will get paid by the insurance company.My friend was confused after the accident and probably suffers from a light concussion and still has a sore right arm due to being shook around her car during the collision.She did go to ER the next day and the doctor perscribed her painkillers. She has also seen a chiropractor.He car has minor dents from the accident but still drives OK.The dents are not very obvious since its an old car (2001 Chrysler Sebring convertible) with poor pant and some scratches.To my friend's surprise, the insurance company of the young girl contacted her saying that the young girl filed a claim claiming she was hit by my friend (!)My friend has been trying to find an accident & injury lawyer, but could not find anyone wanting to tak on her case.I recommended my friend to immediately file charges against the young girl as a first step to establish that she is the victum in this case.After arriving at the police station, she was able to meet up with the same cop that took her statement on the evening of the incident. This cop refused to accept my friend's claim stating that since both parties were there, this is not a hit-and-run caseand she cannot file any charges against the young girl.(!) My friend then asked to at least get a hardcopy of the incident report, which the cops reluctantly agreed to provide (she has it). Since the incident report did not mention that this is a "hit-and-run", my friend asked to get a copy of the 911 call which the cops refused.My legal question now is: What should my friend do now and what are her options?

My ex husband had some bounced checks come into the DA's

My ex husband had some bounced checks come into the DA's office in my town. I was contacted stating that I am responsible to pay for said checks and that if I do not pay, they will issue a warrant and charge me with forgery of these checks. This was an old account that was NOT JOINT. It was his only and I had a separate account of my own. After he was contacted by the DA's office, he filed a police report stating the checks were forged by me. This never happened and at no time have I had access to any of his accounts since before our divorce 6 years ago. A. How can they hold me responsible for HIS account and B. How are they charging me with forgery based on nothing more than the police report that he filed. There is no proof...I had no access to do so... I am at a loss as to how to proceed. I don't want to agree to pay but I also can't have the police showing up randomly at my place of employment, which is exactly what they will do! Please HELP! I have no idea how to proceed and when I asked them what to do to dispute it they said that I can't!! Any advice is greatly appreciated!!JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: Woodward Ok and there is no warrant: only a police report.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: If I do not agree to pay, as if they were mine, THEN they said a warrant will be issued and the charge will be forgeryJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I can't talk to a lawyer here without $150 up front.

Im dumb. I got drunk and emailed my ex, it was a bad breakup

im dumb. I got drunk and emailed my ex, it was a bad breakup she cheated etc. I didnt make any physical threats but she did tell me not to contact her anymore. She filed a police report. This is very out of character for me as i have no history or charges of this or any other more than a pending paraphenalia charge. Im wondering if i have a warrant now. I sobered up and apologized and promised not to do it again. Do i need to call the police station? Bot***** *****ne i run a comedy show in that town, dont wanna show up to my show and get arrested if i was charged w harrassment i would like to know so i can minimize embarrassment, plead no contest and get on w life.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: Texas, not sure if warrant was issued. its first complaint and i have no history and there were no threats. Im not like a stalker type dude, i just got drunk and found out she had lied on something else so i emailed her. It was dumb, we had heated argument but she did state not to contact her so I even apologized. I think she overreacted. Report was filed this morning so im not even sure if there will be a warrant issuedJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
