Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person who has been arrested and charged with child cruelty? My step daughter spanked her 4 year old and it was video taped. I have not seen the video, but I was told the spanking was excessive. Bond was posted and paid on Monday, September 12 and I have been told every day this week the sheriff has not slowed down long enough to view the video. Therefore, the sheriff is continuing to hold her in the county jail. My step daughter is a first time offender and has never been in trouble, not even a speeding ticket. Can you please give me some advice. Oh, and I have been told by the public defender's office the sheriff is the one who decides on a court date. Is this true?

In November 2014, I was convicted of misdemeanor stalking -- online through texting and emails. I never sought her out where she lived -- she lived in California, me in Georgia. I did not have a lawyer and pleaded guilty, placed on probation for a year and served community service and paid all fines on time and fees for probation. Now, my record is clear because I had first-time offender status. Now, the woman who filed the charges against me and I have communicated via a Facebook pages we both can see. But nothing directly. Since 2014, she has blocked me from her main facebook page. However, today I received a notice on facebook to friend her. Had her portrait there. So, apparently she has unblocked me, or I would have never seen the friend thing. If I asked her to friend me, I would be contacting her directly. Would I be open for a stalking felon charge if I sent her a friend request. Or some other charge? Please let me know. And thank you. Have a great holiday weekend.l

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 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>
