Last academic year I had a friend who was a senior in the

Hi, last academic year I had a friend who was a senior in the business school and as a result I waited outside the business school on almost a weekday daily basis. Towards the end of the school year a girl whom I did not know came up to me and made small talk asking me what my name was and if I was a business student myself since she always saw me around there. I told her no, that it was my friend who was in the business school, but I didn't think much of the conversation. School just resumed this week and yesterday this same girl and her friend bump into me and say hi and make small talk again. However, this time she says that a couple days ago she saw me at our campus center, that I was there for like 20 minutes with no apparent place to go before picking up a newspaper. Now this place is our food court and main socializing hub, which is why I was killing time there to see if anyone that I knew strolled by. She says that she was also there and why am I following her around and what's the deal. I politely try to explain that she is mistaken. Her friend ends ther conversation saying that they wanted to talk to me because perhaps this was just a misunderstanding but that if her friend continued to feel uncomfortable they would take further action. Just as a side note, I don't like wearing glasses and don't own any contacts because they irritated my eyes and I have worse than 20/200 vision. So what she's claiming about the campus center is physically impossible for me to know because a face more than 10-15 feet is not possible for me to make out; it would be the equivalent of seeing through a wall for me. It's a fairly small campus so I'm bound to bump into her at some point even if I don't notice her and since I commute I get to campus early and leave late to avoid traffic and I like to walk around campus. This is causing me great emotional distress because now I'm paranoid whenever I'm on campus seeing if she's anywhere around. It's only the start of the school year and I can't go like this for 10 or more months it's too much distress for me. Hopefully this was te end of it, but if she decides to take this further will they listen to her, or will it be obvious that she's just disturbed and looking for attention? This is probably irrelevant, but she is very unattractive, so it couldn't be further from the truth.Thanks

My truck was supposed to be fixed by someone not far from my

My truck was supposed to be fixed by someone not far from my house. After 44 days I left him a note telling to him to fix the truck or let me know what was going on. I put the note in his mailbox and now I have a paper in my truck basically threatening since I put the note in his mailbox. He owes me for the repairs since he did not fix the truck, long story--. I want to file in small claims for my damages, but what do I do about the mailbox thing?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Wisconsin, 2003JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, I've spent over 4500 between him and someone else to fix it and I am thoroughly disgusted. He basically threatened us when we picked it up todayJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: He "fixed" it, then it broke down on me two weeks later, we took it to a ford dealer to have it fixed for real. I want him to reimburse me. He said it was fixed, it wasn't. He also knew I would be hauling a trailer with animals and my kids in the truck. Now I have this mailbox this hanging over my head. Do I file against him>

I have an ex boyfriend and his wife (I believe) who are

I have an ex boyfriend and his wife (I believe) who are responsible for filing a criminal complaint against me for cyber harrassment. I had an argument with this ex boyfriend on-line and I got a weird call from a Texas detective telling me to call him regarding a criminal complaint filed against me?! I live in San Diego, CA and have not seen this person for years! He is a womanizer and cheated on me and I'm guessing he has many women angry with him! This is a frivilous complaint, is it okay to ignore it or what should I do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: He is in Texas and I am in California! He filed some sort of harrassment/cyber complaint against me I'm guessing. I have not threatened him or done anything tell him off on-line! It's crazy!JA: Have any charges been filed? If so, what?Customer: I don't think so. All I know is that he filed a Criminal Complaint against me. For what I do Not know! I had a Texas Detective leave me a VM asking him to call him regarding a criminal complaint that has been filed against me!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No but I would love to connect to the attorney. Thank you.

My ex and I split up, they left my stuff in the garage to

My ex and I split up, they left my stuff in the garage for me to pick up,but forgot one item. I went into the house and got it. Later I ended up buying them one Bc I felt bad they didn't have one anyways. Now a year and a half later they are saying it was breaking and entering Bc they asked me not to enter the house. They are saying they have video evidence from next door neighbors and are threatening to take to police if I don't pay them 2200. If we both lived there but it was in her name would it be breaking and entering if I didn't steal anything? And how lond does she have before this runs out. It all just seems so bogus now.

A defendant is cocurrently a victim in a sex crime

A defendant is cocurrently a victim in a sex crime prosecution. During this time, six plain-clothed individuals identifying themselves as "from the Special Victims Unit" arrive at her door wanting to "just talk about an altercation" whereby a man in her building accused her of "stalking" for responding via email alone - ZERO threats or physical following - to a cease & desist letter sent by his attorney telling her to stop following him. Not only did she not do this, there are cameras in their building on every floor which would have caught such an act immediately. She opened her door and explained yes she refuted the allegation, and was then told she was "under arrest." We're her rights violated? Had she known she was speaking to arresting officers, she would have wanted her attorney present. She had not even known anything she did arose to a crime! This man is broke, abuses pills and alcohol, had her charged only 9 months ago for the SAME allegation - stalking via trespass - and the case was dismissed bc a doorman signed a sworn affidavit that he was coerced by this man to sign an affidavit attesting to his giving the woman a key to complainant's apartment, which never happened. The woman was distressed that it took her considerable money and six months of hell to bring the truth to light. When this fact came out, she was stunned the complainant was not arrested for criminal coercion, or false report. The ADA acknowledged he finally admitted to he had coerced the doorman. And now....this same lying complainant has gotten her arrested again and she is being prosecuted by the same ADA who was overruled in the last case! The complainant is motivated to do this because he is broke and wants to sue the defendant, which he will be able to do if she is found guilty. The facts are again on her side and she is confident it will ultimately be dismissed, but is there no stop to this cycle of madness? She is not litigious, but fears this will continue to happen until the ADA who was overruled by her supervisor is either taken off the case and fresh eyes are allowed. Paying for defense is abusive. Yes thankfully she knows evidence is required before conviction and therefore no conviction can be had, but that does nothing to excuse the trauma and humiliation of the arrest or this second absurd prosecution. Looking for a second opinion....attorney seems content to chug along and charge. Innocent defendant feels utterly without recourse.

Who do you go if soneone is trying to entrap, collude,

Who do you go if soneone is trying to entrap, collude, conspire agsinst one if you fo not knoe the source. I have passed 2 polygraphs that I paid for mysrlf thinking this would clear up the problem. I have been gaslighted, gangs talked. I have never been to an Attorney because I can 't afford to hire one or a private investigator. They have interfered with all thr jobs I really liked. I am not litigious. I just want it to stop. I have been followed. I don't think they are official. My husband investigated organized crime. He passed away in 2002 of lyng cancer. These people? are obsessed eith finding me doibfy something wrong. I had to quit jobs I like and draw social security. I have exhausted all of my efforts in taking the high road thinking they will stop or go away. I would send a cease and desist if I knew who to it to??????
