Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. What false accusations, specifically, were they?

By the way, you may get a phone call offer. This is system generated, and at this point I don't know enough about your situation to know if I can assist you. Decline the offer if it comes up and we can continue in this chat function. And there might be a bit of a delay between me your response and my answer or any follow up question that I might have. I think that there's some maintenance going on with the site. Thank you for your patience.

I feel I can't even get married in my future for a murder a was acussed for. I only seen half if not 15 minutes of the show. I cry every night and feel as if where ever I go I can't even start a new life. This matter has caused me to do drugs like heroin PCP. I just need help to move forward. Do you know if I can get a law suit or what steps take

What did they say about you on this program? I assume that you want to sue the producers / production company / etc... of 20/20?

They said I was a cold harder killer, trafficking, and a hustler. It's a show on basic t.v do you know how much can I make on this law suit
Personal Injury Lawyer: ScottyMacEsq, Attorney replied 11 months ago

I see. Is there any evidence that the producers / writers talked about you in this way maliciously? That is, that they really want to harm you? Or is it for "entertainment value", etc... that they're making these statements about you?

Personal Injury Lawyer: ScottyMacEsq, Attorney replied 11 months ago

So to be clear, there never were any allegations, trial, conviction, etc... of these events? This is the first time that they talked about them?
