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

There I am seeking help and advice to identify what my

Hi there I am seeking help and advice to identify what my options are moving forward. My son-in-law who is 22 years old has been a victim of forgery and fraud from his mother. His father passed away in 2012 leaving him as a single child the beneficiary of his estate in Louisiana we live in the state of Washington his father left him with about $40,000 that my son in-law has deposited into his bank, Chase Bank. His mother stole his checks wrote checks to herself forging my son in law's signature and has stolen in excess of $30,000. My son-in-law has reported the forgery with the county sheriff's office they have since arrested his mother she was booked into jail and has since been released with a court date of July 2nd of this year. The prosecutor is going to push for several years in prison. My question to you is if the state is going to prosecute the mother where does the bank fit into all of this.Is it possible to prosecute the bank as they are trained to catch these types of situations? Total dollar value I believe was $31,500 several checks were written for $500, $1,000, $1,800, but one specific check was written for $20,000. After speaking with the bank they specifically indicated that they are trained to catch fraudulent checks. The checks that the mother had written were written to herself signed her son's name and then endorse the check taking to a different bank. None of the checks were written specifically to someone else, an example phone company rent excetera they were written specifically to herself and forged his name and then arbitrarily signed the checks. There is no way of determining what she did with the money, which would be irrelevant to the situation. If the bank prosecute her the bank is out no money they have lost nothing however the client meeting my son-in-law is out a lot of money. I understand that banks have insurance to cover things in this nature comma How does my son-in-law recapture the money he is out? Is it possible to prosecute the bank or file a lawsuit in the amount of the funds that were taken or can he sue for more than that? What are his options.?

Im in the process of applying to be a financial rep. I

Hi. Im in the process of applying to be a financial rep. I need to get a life, health, series 6, 63, and 7. I have 2 criminal cases against me from 10 and 5 years ago. The first was for defamation at the end of high school, and the 2nd was for a disorderly conduct stemming from a medical crisis from a medication interaction.JA: My brothers got into lots of trouble with the law when they were young. The Criminal Lawyer will know how to get you the best outcome. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: I dont get a clear answer. But Edward Jontes turned me down for it 3 years ago despite no conviction. Idk if thats legal? And I wasnt sure if even after all this time if I would be able to pass an SEC or Finra background?JA: Is there anything else important you think the Criminal Lawyer should know?Customer: No thats about it. I would like to know what they think. They all resulted in municipal tickets, not criminal convictions. I wanted to know if that is an auto disqualifier or if that is actually different than a criminal conviction and if finra would disqualify me for it?JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Criminal Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

I have someone I used to know from the past installed a camera inside my house and constantly stalking me online and through other people but when I decided to make a police complaint the police asked me whether I am on a med or I have mental issues in a very rude way. Though the harassment from this guy was going on for years I never complaint about him as I was afraid that he may have contacts in the police department and in other places and I believe this police officer was not acting in a way where my concern was understood. He didn't even bring a camera detector or anything whereas I believ I am being stalked using a wifi camera which cannot be seen with normal eyes. I am from a different country living in US with no much contacts around me so I was hesitant to do anything but it got to a point where this guy started harassing me and saying bad things about my Father and sister. The worst part is I sent lots of messages directly to his facebook saying bad things whenever I was upset and I am not sure whether that's going to backfire at me. Can you please let me know what are my rights though I did acted outrageously sometimes.
