Can I go to jail for making a threatening remark to my

Can I go to jail for making a threatening remark to my daughter to kill her if she don't leave me alone. I've been a good mother, good grandmother and wife and she has never forgiven me for being raped by her father's brother. She is bipolar and off and on, so she called the other day edging me on and I was already upset and I said something like if you don;t leave me alone I'm gonna kill you. I'm not sure what the words were but she is trying to be revengeful (she and her dad) and I'm working two jobs to try to keep my head above water. The police called this morning concerning this.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: This happened in AZ. About a week ago. She called me and hollered I have put out 5 warranties on you. Several weeks before that, she said that she put out a restraining order. Can't come near 13 ft of home. I have been a RN since 1993, last job before this was working for ICE (didn't pay quite enough) and now work for Arizona State Dept of Corrections Healthcare. She doesn't work. Has 5 kids. Was married to a Dr. They divorced in Texas d/t her adultery. Since she has been here I have done everything I can possible do, but when she gets upset she releases something about the rape so I know she hasn't forgiven me.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes. Have talked to several divorce lawyers cause husband has sided with her, yet he was that caused us to be homeless in CA. I think saw behavior from both of them that appeared to be incest (father +dtr). I know she needs money to keep a roof over her head. Father owes child support for one child and she is 17. That's almost over. So, I think she using her dad, who has went back to using drugs. I took pics to the drugs I found he was hiding in the house. So, I trying to find a divorce lawyer that I can afford. They already told me they would try to get every penny of spousal support from me. I'm wondering will the police come and take me to jail for threats?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't know if I will need a bail bondsman. They both are so convincing and appear as if they are telling the truth, but because I have been trying to open group homes and he couldn't get a fingerprint clearance. When It came back it was d/t domestic violence on spouse.

I have asked this question before but I'm really feeling

I have asked this question before but I'm really feeling uneasy about it and feel like my world is about to be turned upside down. But I'm 24 and male dating a now 18 year old girl. I live in pennsylvania where age of consent is 16 however theres the corruption of a minor Statute that is 18.When we started dating was just a few months before she turned 18. Her sister is now threatening to get police involved because we started dated before she was 18. The threats only started because she is moving out of her sisters house. I want to know if I can be charged with anything and if so who would need to be the one to press charges being that she's now 18. Could her sister do it on her behalf or parents or would she have to do it herself.

I have a man that was in jail with my son who we have been

I have a young man that was in jail with my son who we have been trying to support. My son gave his lawyer a substanial amount of money to take his case. His case is crazy. He had a lady accuse him of rape and molesting her two daughters. The lawyer did a DNA check to see if he had molested the daughters and it came back negative. He and the lady had been dating but she is married and her husband got out of prison so she filed charges on this guy. There is no evidence in the case but because we are in Smith County TX the lawyer is saying if he takes it to trial this guy is going to get life. Now the young man who is only 24 years old is going to take a plea bargain for 40 years on a case that the only evidence is the statement of this girl. Is there anything that can be done?JA: Have charges been filed? Is there a prior criminal record?Customer: The lady filed charges and I don't know about a prior but can find out in a few days. His court date with the judge is in May.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I believe the evidence of the DNA has been filed and reported. But they are not willing to dismiss the case. Also he is a citizen but he is from Venezuela with a heavy Spanish accent. He has been sitting in jail for over a year trying to fight this.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That is pretty much everything. But when the lawyer first took the case he made the comment the case has no evidence and should be dismissed.

Lets see...i was not only falsly accused of rape but raping

Lets see...i was not only falsly accused of rape but raping a child i once saw as my own child. Told to suck up being arrested and embarrassed in front of family and .hospital staff that were told i was a rapist!. But still i sucked it up as shit happen. Well that was 2009 its 2017 now and i cant get a home, apt, or pass a background investigation with out the horror of having to explain why i was arrested for rape and sure according to the LAW discrimination is wrong and we all know no one ever discriminates... But as always thwy hide behind theyre lawyers and legal wordplay that allows them to deny me my Constitutional right to pursue happiness. And im being judged and crucified for what on paper looks like im a problem of society. but rhis is my last straw... My ex gets high and my child gets taken into state. Custody... And guess why i cant get custody? Because. Someone looked online saw i was falsy accused of rape accused me of false claims again and then children services took my son and i have no chance of getting him bavk based on what children services used against me. They KNEW i was falsely accused but becuase of the new claim thwy pretended to be ignorant and acted as if i was a threat based on previous accusations and the judhe rulled me as a possible endangerment. So i lost my kid now... I need a lawyer. Or idk what im going to do
