Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Will the police be turning the file over to a detective and to the DA?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No they are requesting I file for a warrant. I was hospitalized and transported by a ambulance and referred to Victim compensation per hospital record. After I made the report a few weeks ago the detectivetold me to fill out a warrant. Their is no record of a police record being made despite the huge hospital bill. Also my injury’s required one day hospital stay , no broken bones a concussion and cut. They ran up a 14000 bill up on a drunk unconscious man can i contest this. The security company told ne at the time of the incident they had all the information on my assialant and they would share it with me Later they refused, My Landlord also told me he would give me the information if I would leave then reneged when I left a month later. Is either of them or the property liable for obstruction charge. Please help

No i want a record of your advice and money is an issue

I'm going to opt out of your question, which I see is a civil and not a criminal matter. A civil litigator can discuss liability.

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.
