If Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and

If John Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and only because he gets scared, he does all of the following: Resists arrest and hits a police officer, when in jail, knocks a guard unconscious and escapes from jail, when in court after being recaptured, he knocks a bailiff unconscious and runs out of court and escapes, when recaptured, he knocks a guard unconscious and escapes jail again this time stealing a car to do so and leaving it abandoned in a vacant lot undamaged, when recaptured and in court again, it is discovered that he is innocent after all. Will all the assaults, escapes, and the grand theft auto and stuff be forgotten about because John Doe should never have been arrested in the first place because he was innocent and it was the error of the law, or would he still have to pay for those charges? (For the states of Texas and Indiana) Thank you.

I live in South Carolina and am 45 years old. I had a person

I live in South Carolina and am 45 years old. I had a person contact me on Hornet, a gay app, whose profile stated that he was 18 years old. Immediately he wanted me to text him. I informed him that I would rather just text on the Hornet site. We chatted on the site and then he wanted me to text him again. I then did so. He sent me some nude pictures and the I returned some nude pictures of myself. a few days later he then texted me and, I didn't notice at the time, then revealed he was 17. He texted that a day or two after the pictures were sent. Well he texted me yesterday wanted to come and spend the weekend. I did not respond. He texted me again this morning stating that he was looking forward to spending the weekend. I just said "Hey" to his text. I then asked if he ever sent a picture of his penis flaccid. He said that he didn't, but that he would. This was at like 12:30pm today. I missed a call on my phone at about 8:30am. Then I received another call at around 1:30pm from the same number. The person said that he was a SLED officer and that I committed a felony and that the person that texted me was only 17 and slit his wrists and was in the hospital and that the family wanted to press charges, but the father wanted to speak with me. About 30 minutes later, a gentleman called me stating that he was the boy's father and that he didn't want to press charges and drag his boy through all this, going to court and things. He said that he would not press charges if I did not have any further contact with his son, that I deleted all pictures, and as a punishment to me, that I agree to pay all the medical bills. I told him that I did not have any problems with the first two things, but that I would have to speak with some individuals before I agreed to anything else. He stated that he understood and said I needed to contact him back today by 5pm. I informed him that the pictures were exchanged with the understanding that he was 18 according to his profile, before he said in a text that he was 17, which to tell the truth, I did not even see until I reviewed the texts again. The number of the call at around 8:30am and then again at around 1:30pm were the actual number of the SLED office according to the intetnet. The person that I texted with was also from South Carolina as well.

I live with my son who just turned 21 and my

I live with my son who just turned 21 and my (non-registered) domestic partner. Our household costs around $2,500 to run per month and my son pays rent of around $200 which of course doesn't come close to an equal share of the expenses.He has a part time job and goes to college. He earns around $1,000 per month. He has depression, anxiety and ADHD. Part of ADHD is lack of impulse control and he finds it impossible to manage money. He has around $3,000 in a savings account, and to prevent him damaging himself financially I would like to "confiscate" for want of a better word the money and keep it safe for him to pay for future expenses like gas for his car, a trip to visit his sister out of state when she graduates and so on. His job is ending tomorrow and that's why I'm thinking of taking this important step for him because it could be several months before he finds another job.It is extremely unlikely - but I guess in theory as he is over 21 and it is his money he could accuse me of 'stealing' the money - which is the last thing I would ever do. I'm simply trying to protect him from himself lovingly.Do you have any thoughts?

My friend is charged with Larceny over $250. The value of 2

Hi, my friend is charged with Larceny for shoplifting over $250. The value of 2 shirts are about $350. He has never had any prior arrests or any criminal record. He works extremely hard for 10 hours a day 6 days a week, he has built up his credit score from a score of 550 back in college just 8 years ago to a score of 750 now. He paid everyone on time. His employer trusts him with cash and checks of thousands of dollars being handled by him at the place of work every day. The day he was accused of shop lifting, he was rushing to buy a couple of shirts and run to his family's dinner gathering. His doctor had prescribed him Tramadol for Tennis Elbow and he took tramadol that night. He also had bought a shirt 2 days prior to this incident and he wanted to replace that with the new shirts. At the shop he noticed he left the shirt in his car, so he had to run to the car and bring the shirt. The combination of few factors which include rushing to the dinner party, thinking of going to his car get the shirt and come back to buy the new shirts and pay for them, and maybe Tramadol which causes anxiety in some users could have contributed to his absent mindedness and mistake that caused the incident. Does he have a good defense? This is in MA.

My roomate and i were in kentucky. we went to a store to buy

hi, my roomate and i were in kentucky. we went to a store to buy a couple stuff...my roomate went first inside and got his stuff while i was outside on the phone, and when he came back out of the store, i ended up my phone conversation and went inside to buy a couple things. i went inside got the things i wanted to buy, came back to the car, dropped the items, and i was going to walk back inside the store to use the bathroom. As soon as i reach the store doors, we were stop by police officers and the store lost and prevention people. The police officer said he was called by the store security people and they told him me and my roomate were acting suspiciously, buying things and coming in and out of the store. I told the police officer i had no idea what he was talking about, but he was insisting on saying we had fraudulent credit cards. After a couple of minute of talks, i handed to him my credit card and my debit card. He went to his car, talked on the phone and came back saying that this was not the credit cards he wanted, and that i had to give him the allegedly fraudulent credit cards that we used in the store. Because we had already thrown away the receipts, i told him i don't know which cards he was talking about. The police officer then insisted that i gave him everything that i had in my wallet (including business cards, and all...everything..)..i was a little bit resistant, but being scared i obeyed him and gave him everything inside my wallet. He also went to my roomate and also ask him to give him his wallet also. After more than an hour of wait outside, the police officer arrested us and charged us with 3 different felonies: 1) false making/embossing of credit cards..2) trafficking in financial information...and 3) criminal possession of forged instrument-2nd degree......Now i want to file a motion to suppress evidence based on illegal search and seizure based on the fourth amendment because i did not (nor my roomate) consent to a search and no warrant was provided to search our personal belongings (wallets). I believe we had a right to a certain privacy protected by the law , and no probable cause was involved. ...just wanted to have an expert opinion first. thanks.
