Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk

Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk at a party. He was the one who brought the alcohol to several minors. He raped her while she was passed out/asleep. We are prosecuting and have done everything including a rape kit but was done 60 hours after the rape when we found out. The exam showed abrasions to her labia and blood on her cervix. She woke up to this happening and pushed him off and left so we are doubting any semen. SO we have a he said she's said he is saying it was consensual. He has a record, He has been arrested 9 times, 5 of them for giving alcohol to minors. Our daughter is in counseling and is having good and bad days. We are supporting her and believe her 100%. My fear is he will go free. Do we need an attorney or do we wait for the prosecutors? And what if he gets off on lack of evidence and he sues us can/does that happen?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Ohio and May 22JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No only policeJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No that is the story in a nut shell.JA: OK.

Question Law Educator I have conversed with State DOJ

Question Law EducatorI have conversed with State DOJ Commander of ICAC who now recognizes, after he himself had called the Sheriff's Department requesting my case re-opend and properly investigated, received three falsified report by the Sheriff's Department.Prior DOJ requested a substantial amount of my evidence to crimes committed against me—severe, sever privacy invasion, which I gave them.DOJ than forwarded my evidence to crimes to the Sheriff's Department—evidence DOJ now reconizes Sheriff's Department witnessed 3 1/2 yrs ago — on three separate occasions, but failed to put material evidence in official reports—rather Sheriff's Department put in sever, sever words defaming my character in three reports as incompetent, not to be believed—even stating such words “I was so belligerent I was kicked out of a mental institution.” I was horrified—these are public records for all public to see and make judgment on my character—I am humiliated—I am a professional business woman who rely's on commercial bankers.As of Monday I have provided DOJ with documented proof to the false reports. My statement to DOJ was well written though long—three pages-- I stayed on point with small sentences and well spaced.DOJ—Commander of ICAC who received the false reports forward my statement--to the Sherif's Department MondayAs of today DA is lying, playing stupid-- stating they have not reviewed my report. This is false statement when I know my report was reviewed by Assistant attorney and handed back to DA 3 months ago.It was even suggested to me to go to the Sheriff's Department and file another complaint report to the Sheriff's Department so they can open another investigation.n Why would I do that, Sheriff's Department buried my case now three times. Falsified three official reports, as stated one given to DOJ/ICAC Commander in Chief.I don't know Law Educator—seems everyone is scared—I have been told I have every right and I have a sold claim to file seven official complaints against the Sheriff's Department.Falsifying reports, Obstruction to Justice. Knowingly not protecting my Constitutional Rights to Privacy. Libel, Slander and defamation to my character in written reports—severely damaging my ability of fair employment to earn a respectful income.I understand I need an attorney—no attorney in my town will take on the Sheriff's Department for fear of retaliation—that is how it is my town.Going to Milwaukee I cannot do—plus the dollars I would need to spend—and once I open my check book I lose all control of my funds.Your Thoughts Law Educator—I have DOJ on my side and they are rather pissed at the Sheriff's Department.To note everything I sent to DOJ sits in the State Capital building—exactly where the Attorney General sits as well Civil Liberties Division.Thank YouTeresa Please keep our conversation private

In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitary

In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitary confinement, he attempted to heat a bottle of water with a match and then flushed it in the toilet. He will be charged with (1) Arson, but level 1, 2, 3 or 4 is not known yet. He did not willfully try to burn down the building! He is also charged with (2)Possession of Contraband (matches) by Inmate and (3) Destroying Evidence. He wants to fight the charges because he did not willfully/intentionally attempt to start a fire for any malicious reason. Do you think he has a good case to take to trial? However, if he must plead guilty, are any of these charges a 50% crime? or 85% crime?

Someone from my husbands past is harassing us. This woman is also claiming publicly that my husband raped her and then posting links to my Facebook page to they see who the "rapist" is. I've tried filing a police report and nothing is getting done and she's doing this more and more. What can I do? We tried to get a restraining order but because the judge didn't think our lives were being threatened she denied it.
