Rosedale, MD asked in White Collar Crime for Maryland

Q: Are these people committing extortion????

My ex and his mom are sending me letters demanding $100,000 for an alleged assault in 2006; he stalked me, made 2 attempts at my life and created an armed hostage situation requiring an intervention by S.W.A.T. He is convicted and serving 30 years at Patuxtent for the Criminally Insane. States Attorney wants ME to write letters to them to try and stop this.Extortion is a FELONY. I`m NOT a member of Law Enforcement. Why can`t I get help from the court system?????

A: This question has gone unanswered for well over a year. Yes, that appears to be extortion in my opinion. I do not know enough facts to venture a guess for the second question.
