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.

I got caught by a loan company commiting Identity theft . They now want to talk to my dad so that he can verify that he indeed did want this loan. If he says that he approved me doing all the application process for him, even though it wasnt him doing it, can I get prosecuted?

My bf is currently in county jail in NJ and has been there

My bf is currently in county jail in NJ and has been there for 6 months. He was in the Drug Court program. However, he now has new charges. An member of the Drug Court team visited him in jail about 2 weeks ago to conduct an evaluation, and asked him if he wanted to stay in the program. He said "yes" that he really needs the help. The gentleman said they wanted to help him. Well when I called the coordinator of the Drug court program yesterday, she said the decision to keep him in the program was still pending. He hasn't been to court in months (they schedule court every few weeks and then keep postpoing it). Neither one of his public defenders have returned our calls or spoke to him in months. He wants to know if in your professional opinion he has a real chance at staying in the program, since they did the evaluation?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: NJJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: He was charged with a bunch of stuff but only has been indicted on one of the charges...two were remanded.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No thank you
