Thank you for that info. His probation time was 2 years from last October. They can't get him a bed until August 11th because he said he would go to a dual diagnosis clinic instead of a reg rehab. Will they take that into consideration and not start his probation over?

I HAVE A QUESTION FROM MY SON. HE HAS A 20 YEAR HISTORY OF

I HAVE A QUESTION FROM MY SON. HE HAS A 20 YEAR HISTORY OF MENTAL ILLNESS. HE IS NOW IN JAIL THE FIRST TIME FOR PROBATION VIOLATION. HE WAS USING HEROIN INSTEAD OF HIS MEDICATION AND REPORTED TO PROBATION ON HIS DAY TO REPORT. THEY PUT HIM IN JAIL AND WAS ASKED BY AN ASSESSOR IF HE WANTED TO GO TO A REGULAR REHAB OR TO A DUAL DIAGNOSIS REHAB. HE SAID HE WOULD GO TO THE DUAL DIAGNOSIS REHAB. HERE IS THE PROBLEM. HE WAS NEVER TOLD HOW LONG HE WOULD HAVE TO WAIT FOR A BED. HE HAS BEEM THERE TWICE AS LONG AS ANYONE ELSE AND HIS ASSESSOR SAYS THERE IS NO REASON WHY HE CANNOT COME HOME UNTIL THERE IS A BED FOR HIM. HE AGREED TO GO WHEN THEY GET A BED. HOW LONG ARE THEY ALLOWED TO KEEP HIM IN THERE??JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is PA.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No....we can't afford one and the public defender won't return my calls because my son is 40 years old. My son has had to be put on anti depressants because he is so detraught.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I spoke with the probation supervisor and she told me that his probation officer wasn't there that day and so he saw the drug task force supervisor instead. I am the one who filed charges against him last October(my son). He has never been in trouble with anyone else. He was charged with terroristic threats, resisting arrest. The terroristic threat was dropped. He got a part time job in October of 2015 but by April of this year his mental illness was increasing and he does his usual thing and got back on drugs. He came to me and his employer the end of May and explained that he needed time off and went to the local methidone clinic to get help. He started 2 days before he went to probation. When the drug task force person urine tested him they found methodone(25mg) and heroin in his urine.

I was involved in an accident on June 20, I also paid my car

I was involved in an accident on June 20, I also paid my car insurance that day, they reinstated my renters insurance that day but not my car insurance, so I was not covered when the accident happened and I'm at fault. I also passed out prior to the accident. I don't remember anything till after impact. I had slurred speech, trouble with numbers and I could not move my hands to turn off my car. I am currently working on what happened to me, I see a neurologist soon and hope to have an answer as to why I passed out. I still have memory issues, worse than before. I don't know what to do. I live on a fixed income and have 3 kids which child support received is not enough. What should I do?

I have an interesting series of questions to ask. First the

Good Afternoon,I have an interesting series of questions to ask.First the background;I was convicted on one count conspiracy to commit bank fraud for which I was sentenced to 41 months in prison and ordered to pay 700K+ in restitution. I have served my sentence and am now on probation. I am paying $200 a month on that restitution amount. I have never missed a payment.My former business partners testified against me. They are now embroiled in a federal bankruptcy case stemming from their behavior during the time that my crime (supposedly) was committed.An involuntary bankruptcy proceeding was initiated a few years ago, shortly after my sentencing. This proceeding also contains an adversarial proceeding initiated by the bankruptcy trustee in which she lays out a federal RICO allegation. One of the predicates within the RICO allegation is that my former business partners lied to the creditor (bank) about my behavior which in turned caused the bank to sue me and my federal bank fraud case to be initiated. The allegation is that my former business partners knew the bank would pass along their false statements to the justice department thus hindering the justice department's investigation as well as the bank's potential recovery of assets. There are (at least) eight other predicates called out within the adversarial proceeding.I maintained that I had no criminal intent and I did not benefit from the conspiracy. There were no other “conspirators” indicted.The case has been litigated in federal bankruptcy court and the judge has the case under advisement since December 19, 2015. The trustee expects a ruling soon.I can answer any questions you may have in order to clarify this further.My first question isIf the judge decides against my former business partners and all creditors are made whole do I still owe restitution?

My husband and his previous deceased wife purchased a house in Science Hill Kentucky. After the wife passed, he contracted to sell the house. His wife had no will when she died. The person who is buying the house has presented a few bad checks for the payments withe the last one in May, 2016. This one was not made good and she is behind 3 months. My husband married Dec 2015 and passed June 13, 2016. I am trying to not only collect payment on the house but probate his will. The contract was never filed in Kentucky. What are my options?
