My uncle was found guilty of a rico crime (he looked the other way when his wife embezzled money from her employer), spent time in prison, and the judge has ordered him to pay $4,000 a month in restitution. He was an HVAC teacher prior to his conviction and is disabled. The judge does not agree he is disabled, despite doctor confirmations and 6 back surgeries. The judge has put him back in jail for failure to pay the full amount each month, even though he was paying 15% of his monthly disability income in restitution, which is what is directed by the IRS. The judge said the IRS directive is "heresay." My uncle is not a threat to anyone and he was doing his best to pay as much as possible each month. What can we do next to help my uncle so he can repay his restitution at a reasonable rate? He's now back in jail with no medication.

Mar********: Here is my last question on the 'work'

Mar********: Here is my last question on the 'work' scenario. Every time I tried to get the parents to reign in their daughter's efforts to make my job harder (coming and going at all times of the day while she was supposed to be my relief at the front desk... for instance), they would say, "that's why we pay her under the table." My question is whether it's illegal to pay your kid for working at your business, but keeping her out of the 'system.' I don't see how they could have put her in any of the payroll tax systems (workman's comp, SocSec, etc.) without enabling her to be taxed, so I'm guessing giving your kid 'an allowance' for working for you isn't illegal. Thanks.

My former employee I worked accusing me of stealing

My former employee I worked for is accusing me of stealing money from her. She said she has proof that I made transactions through moneygram to my account, which is true and I dI'd pay for. To summarize, the busiNess is moneygram and every day we print out a summary of sales and count the money. I did count the money everytime we close with my employer present. I give her the money and sales report before she deposits it to the bank. Now, she claims that she doesn't count the money even I give her the money to count. She said the transactions I made was never paid for, even if on those days she had no cash shortage at all. She also was not talking to me in regards ***** ***** situation, instead she calls my mother and demand money. She also called my Aunt and told her the situation and accused me of steaLing of $4000. She is demanding my mother to pay $2500 and she'll drop the case. I've been bothered by this. She did not see me steal, just accusing me of stealing because of transactions I made. I worked for a lot of companies dealing with money and I have never steal/stole anything. I just graduated as a medical student and I am afraid if this goes to court it will hurt my career.My employer refused to contact me directly instead she contacts my family. My mother already told her to talk to me directly and she has not done so. In addition, she said she felt betrayed because I made personAL transactions without her knowing. Since, I was working for her under the table from Jan 15-Feb. 2 she did not give me any rules, regulations nor verbal communication that employees are not allowed to make personAL transactions.She then told me after she lost money from the business.I am scared to go to jail because I have never stolen anything from anyone and have never gone to jail. I have a 6 year old and a newborn and I'm scared for their future as well if this goes horribly wrong.

While it may be morally wrong is it illegal to, or

While it may be morally wrong is it illegal to, or considered fraud to lie about ones income to gain a cheaper apartment thru income restricted apartments. I ask because I know some one who doctored income papers to lie about wages. This is for Tampa FL. I was told it could be considered welfare fraud and possibly tax fraud because of the tax subsidies apartment complexes are given to provide cheaper rent. if it is is there a statue of limiations?

My daughter was indicted, arrested and convicted of wire

My daughter was indicted, arrested and convicted of wire fraud conspiracy and identity theft April 2013, as a part of tax fraud. she entered guilty plea in July of 2013, and was incarcerated and begin serving a 75 month sentence. Since incarcerated shehas taken a great deal of classes to move forward after incarceration, submitted substantial information to the prosecutor that I feel will lead to additional convictions of at least 2 or 3 individuals and completed the 24 mandatory sentence. Her PSI documentedthat she was held accountable for 185 thousand dollars intended loss, for advisory calculation purposes, although there was 3 co defendants involved in the case and neither of the lawyers, nor the prosecutors could individualize the amount of intended lossfor each of the defendants. In addition, there is some talk that another participant (not a codefendant) was indicted on related charges ( she cashed IRS checks for some of the people that filed the taxes) and she did not receive a prison sentence, only probation.Finally, since her indictment, hearing and sentencing, the judge that sentenced her and her codefendants has died and another judge has been assigned to subsequent related cases, and the defendants assigned under the new Judge (with the same charges and approx.same amount of intended loss of dollar amount) but are getting substantially lower sentences from the newly assigned judge I would like to know if there is a motion that she can file (exception of a 2255 Motion for ineffective counsel) that may lead to a reductionof her sentence.
