An ex-partner of mine, who is MIA right now, had withdrawn

An ex-partner of mine, who is MIA right now, had withdrawn $19,000 six months ago out of the business account I'm part of - told me that it was for hospital expenses, but I found out that this ex-partner had purchased a house with this money.I have documentation to show that I'm a partner in the company. However, I haven't had any authority over the bank accounts. Is this considered theft? Would this be a civil case or a criminal case? This happened in Aurora, Colorado.

This has to do with appealing a sentence after plea

Hi,This has to do with appealing a sentence after plea agreement.A business owner I know was charged with a federal crime (NC Western District), signed a plea agreement, plead guilty, and was just given a prison sentence. I am certain he is innocent, and that he plead guilty under duress.A lot of money was stolen from customers (they sent money but never got orders), and the owner was charged (wire fraud). The money actually went to an employee that embezzled from the company and had nearly complete control of the company. I believe the owner feared retaliation from the embezzler if he did not plead guilty. The embezzler is likely being investigated, but nothing about the embezzlement is mentioned in the charges against the owner. The owner's attorney and judge likely did not know. However, the U.S. Attorney either knew or should have known.The owner also very likely would have had a good faith defense (e.g. over the time he ran the business, 99% of customers got their orders, and when he regained control he immediately cut his salary and looked into ways of orderly shutting down the company when he regained control).Here is what I am hoping to find out: How many days would he have if we was willing to appeal? If he did appeal, about how much time might it buy him before he had to state what happened? Is there a way to avoid going to jail while an appeal is processing? If he was unwilling to appeal, for fear of his safety, are there any other options that might prevent him from going to jail?Thank you in advance for any information you may be able to provide.

I recently went to a top Russian Appraiser to get an appraisal for insurance purposes on an antique Russian item. Turns out it is counterfeit. I purchased this through paypal Aug 24th, 2013 from an large antique seller in MA. for over $1,000. So I askedthe dealer for a refund and they said no because of the date I purchased it but my point is that it is counterfeit, worthless and the dealer commited wire fraud by taking my payment through palpay and sending the item to me in PA. Is there a statue of limitationson this? What can I do? Thanks Sue

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.
