Good morning. I am sorry to hear about this. How long ago did he accept the plea? Was he represented at the time and who coerced him to take this?

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.
