I am a victim of 11 felonies in the state of Louisiana . The defendant has through his lawyer filed for a pretrial diversion He comitted 5 counts of forgery, 5 counts of Insurance fraud
against us we have proof srom the sheriffs dept who investigated the allegations we pressed charges against him . What can we do?
JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: We were lease purchaseing a double wide mobile home and the land for $65,000.00 and put down !2,500.00 thinking it was a down payment. Well we went to sign the contract thinking there was a notary there but after signing and paying he said that we would meet with the notary at a later date. I was upset, but he said it was legal no notary ever notarized it, but he had a notarized signature , and number on it but the detective on the case went see the notary but he said he never signed it and never met us or knew who we were . thats not all though
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: yes he also had us sign a power of attorney which was not notarized in our presence, but the notary said he had notarized that ,but only him and the leesor were present there is more he was arrested on 11 felonies against us includeing theft . we got hit by 2 tornadoes and he kept and forged my name to all checks repaired the roof ,but I found out 3 years later that there were 5 checks totaling 10,000.00 and did not do all the repairs . He also stole 1 and signed my name to a check that was only made out to me. he also charged taxes for 3 years of over 300.00 a year for the taxes, but I went to the assesors office and I was supposed to be paying $64.00 a year
