My friend was caught shoplifting. The charge was just for
My friend was caught shoplifting. The charge was just for shoplifting and nothing else. This is in the state of SC. He has a trial coming up in one month. The papers say that the crime was "shoplifting for less than $2000" and offered her 30 days in jail or a fine of a whopping $2125.00. Doing some reading, I read that the maximum penalty is 30 days or a fine no more than $1000. I would like to know if what I read is true, why the fine is so high, and what are his options? He is 22 and he has never had a real job and cannot afford that kind of fine nor a lawyer for that matter. This is his first offense and they offered him something called PTI? If he completes this, will charges be dropped and will the fine go down?
My grandson drank a soda in Walmart, put it down and didnt
My grandson drank a soda in Walmart, put it down and didnt pay. He was taken in an office, they took his picture and ID but did not call police. He is now being hounded by Palmer, Reifler and Assoc. in Orlando, FL. They want hundreds of dollars payment and are threatening him with a lawsuit/ and or jail. He is scared to death. He lives paycheck to paycheck and does not have the money. It's like extortion! He has admitted guilt, and paid them $25. What now?
I want to change my last name to my maiden name. I am
I want to change my last name to my maiden name. I am required by the Colorado Law that I have completed the fingerprint cards to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and FBI. I received the letters from them. CBI states that I have a clean record in Colorado. FBI says in the letter, "A search of the fingerprints provided by this individual has revealed prior arrest data at the FBI. This does not preclude further criminal history at the state or local level." I was surprised and I read next pages. I truly forgot about my past. I was a teenager when I was arrested for shoplifting in 1975 in Rochester, New York and charged as theft. It was misdemeanor and I completed the charge. I think I paid the fine. In 1978 I was arrested in Austin Texas for shoplifting (with my friend) and I was charged theft. (Charge 1) That is it. It does not say if it was completed. I am very upset and I forgot about my past. I don't remember if I did pay the fine, but I remember that my late husband told me that he paid the fine for me because I did not have a job at that time. I don't understand what FBI says above. Will they arrest me or what? Will it be a problem if I go ahead to the court in Denver and pay $100 to change my last name to my maiden name? Will it hurt me if I apply for a part time job if I change it to my maiden name?

I'm fifty years old and I live in the state of Connecticut.
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I'm fifty years old and I live in the state of Connecticut. In 2009, while under the care of a Psychiatrist, I was put on Abilify and started to gamble compulsively, spending compulsively. I acted erratically until I was taken off of it in 2014. I just saw a commercial on television about possibly filing an Abilify lawsuit. I have put my family in deep financial distress while being on this drug. I would like to pursue a claim, but am wondering if it's too late for me to file. I don't want to put myself through it to only find out that the statute of limitations is expired. Can you please help me?
I past my CA state life and health licenses a few days
I past my CA state life and health licenses a few days before I was arrested for shoplifting back in 2009 and I didn't go to court but i completed a diversion program. My licenses was approved, maybe it was not on my record yet? Now I'm planning to get my property and casualty licenses and I'm wondering if that incident will effect me?
