Since no arrest, only a short stop and detainment, damages are minimal. The Tickets(Citations) must be dismissed by the Court. So you need an attorney to go to Court on the Rule Of The Road Violations, and an attorney that knows GTLA law so a Federal Civil Rights Suit can be brought, or at... Read more »

He is blaming me and saying he will make me pay. I feel like i am being blackmailed he knows all my life details. He could twist things around to harm me and my name what can I do to prevent this? surely the police encounter this a lot

You can petition the court for a protective order so he cannot have contact with you. Without more details its hard to say if that is your best solution. You should call a lawyer where you live and ask for advice.
She has stolen packages on several occasions, one such even caught on camera. She also left threatening letter tacked to our tree

The criminal offense we call theft in Tennessee can be prosecuted by your county district attorney. You will want to reach out to that office to move forward.

Not sure of your asserted Causes of Actions. But the personal injury claim has a 1 year SOL, so you must hire an attorney fast. Potential property torts would be 3 years.

You would be wise to consult with a defamation attorney local to you. But the answer is generally "yes" you can sue. But you have the burden of proof to prove any case you file.

Call your attorney and do not talk to anyone else about this. You do not want to be charged with possession or even tampering with evidence.
When I went to retrieve the car, I looked in the glove box and a sealed evidence bag (from someone else’s case) was in there. What should I do?

Call your attorney and ask him for assistance. This should be returned to the District Attorney General who will need it for a case. And maybe there is something that you might get for your honesty from the DA. Some LEO is going to be very embarrassed, so it is better to deal with the DA than... Read more »

I've been sent threatening messages from the same person through different accounts and they have made fake accounts just to be able to send these messages to me. Does it still count towards harassment even though it's fake accounts and names?
answered on Oct 20, 2020
Yes, you may want to consider seeking an Order of Protection against this person. You could also consider calling the non-emergency police line and reporting the harassment. Sometimes a cease and desist letter from an attorney is successful in getting someone to stop messaging. If these options... Read more »

I can't tell why you would be sued for the facts provided? Did you promise to pay for the trips? She may not have a good case, but unfortunately, if you are sued you should appear at the court date. Otherwise, you risk having a default judgment entered against you.
