We had a case where my neighbors called out my husband

Customer Question
riding a 4-wheeler, and dragged...
We had a case where my neighbors called out my husband riding a 4-wheeler, and dragged him into court for noise harassment. The judge, objected to everything my lawyer brought up, and in the end sentenced him to 60 days in jail, and because we were going for a repeal bond, he gave him a $500,000.00 bond. I had to come up with the entire amount to get him out of jail after 24 days. This was not easy. We own our own company. So, the 24 days that my husband was in the jail, I had to do his job and mine. There was really no evidence that my husband had done anything, there were never any pictures produced that showed my husband riding the 4-wheelers. Most of the time it was his nephew, that was living with us at the time. You have to understand, we have 5.28 acres, and a driveway leading up to the 5.28 acres, that is 200 yards long. So, we are buried back in a community that is only one road and two cul de sacs long. I would like an investigation into the 911 calls that were made to the call centers, when they were wasting tax payers money dialing 911, instead of using a non-emergency number. The police came to my house around 30 times, and never gave anyone a ticket, never saw my husband or me riding a 4-wheeler, and said there was nothing they could really do, but yet we got dragged into court anyway. This was a setup from the Howard County Police Department's Captain Koons with my neighbors from the beginning.

I feel my husband was set up by the police captain, the neighbors, and the judge. We finally got all the phone conversations back from the lawyer that Michael had in his first time in court and they do not prove anything.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

I recently Hired a contractor for the shed and the driveway. He gave me two quotes. I agreed with the price and pay him up half upfront for each task. Three weeks into the project he only managed to completed the shed. For the driveway he only did partial. I gave him a deadline. A week later he admited that he cannot get the permit for the driveway. I have pay him upfront $2000 for the driveway, and he only managed to get a form about 250 square feet. No concrete has poured. So I expected that he owed me some money after paying him for his partial work on the driveway. Can I use the remaining balance for this unfinish driveway to pay for the remaining balance I owed him on the shed? Thank you for helping … read more
