We have an ex employee who we fired several months ago when

We have an ex employee who we fired several months ago when it was discovered that he was stealing from us. He was selling our manufactured product, which was taken from us without our knowledge, on ebay. We confronted him and he admitted that he was selling it on ebay, and confirmed the account was his account. He was to stop doing this but he is still selling a lot of our product on ebay. He is not only selling stolen product but is also selling far below our selling price. He has three young sons and we do not want to hurt his family if we can help it but we want to scare him to get the product back and have him turn over the ebay account to us so we can take it down. How do you suggest us to handle this?

Lawyer, Earlier today, I was convicted of shoplifting in

Hello Lawyer,Earlier today, I was convicted of shoplifting in California and gave me 488 PC and asked me to appear in court by November. I'm really scared this was my first offence and I don't have any criminal record. I was out of my mind and I was absent minded while doing it, I never had intention to steal anything, I never ran with anything, I just walked out to different store without realizing I took stuff from the store. Please help me and how will this effect my future career, I'm non immigrant. Please help me.

Hypothetically, I was arrested for shoplifting as I left a

Hypothetically, I was arrested for shoplifting as I left a well-known national low budge department store. The police were outside the door.Oddly enough, no on accused me of stealing during my shopping on that day, but the loss prevention officers declared they recognized me from tapes stealing months ago, and stealing a lot.I was told by the officers that they went and looked at footage of me during the ten minutes I Waited in the squad car. I believed they saw something on video, but what? I've read a loss prevention guys web site and everything he states about his job should have prohibited my arrest. If I were in a professional shop lifting ring, maybe I would be arrested without stealing on the day. However I'm not.This giant chain of course is pressing charges, but the discovery given to my attorney had no video. It exists, the chain, or the DA says, but it's been two months since the discovery was given to my attorney and the video which damns me has not been handed over. Supposedly this chain has it handy and can attach it to email. Yet it's nowhere.I've had to retain a very expensive attorney and pay 2 months salary in bail. Let's say $50,000 out of pocket. Attorneys always ask for more money "if it goes to trial "Well, how can he get it dropped if this damning evidence is withheld until the last minute? I'll have to pay another huge fee because of this.What will the judge do to them for withholding it?What should my Atty do to show I'm being prosecuted on evidence they won't show us or the court?And since the DA prosecuted, i.e., charged me, and I say they charge anyone with everything they can until they are stopped, they don't investigate or even ponder if they gave the evidence to convict; since the charges were brought, can I sue this chain for arresting me? Immunity from prosecutorial misconduct is the biggest destroyer of American people excepting drugs. I've had to spend $200,000 in 4 years to defend myself against charges that were in every case, dropped. No trials; just pointed out to the DA that they had no case. In my city, they rely on poverty to put people in jail. People can't afford to fight the charges so a plea bargain is the answer.What can I do to the chain?What ought my lawyer be doing about this withheld discovery? How can the judge allow this email -able discovery to be withheld a day, let alone 2 months?

I posted a C********* add pretending to be a woman. I used a

Hello,I posted a C********* add pretending to be a woman. I used a picture, with face removed, on the add that was one another female had sent me before. The female is over 18 and I never gave out any personal information such as names or contact info.One person who responded to my add wanted to verify via voice. I made up some excuse and said I couldn't. She replied with a comment stating that I was getting reported and that being a fake online is illegal.While what I did is not honest, is it illegal? I had no intention of talking to these people just wanted to share stories and pics. Thank you in advance for your response.
