Pensacola, FL asked in Criminal Law and Civil Rights for Florida

Q: I told my landlord that his rent was in my apt, and not to let anyone in. He did anyways. Was it him or me that's robbed

Someone I thought a friend kicked in my door and started taking my things. I told the landlord I lived alone and to not let anyone in. He did anyways. My so called friend was clever enough to print out some that looked like mail with my address on it. So the police made no arrest and I was taken for more than $2200 worth of stuff. Including $800 cash. I told my landlord about the money. Most of which was his rent. What I want to know is it me or the landlord who was robbed for the rent. Because I was at work, and informed the landlord so as to act on my behalf.

A: Depending on the circumstances, your landlord might be complicit in the theft. But it is you, and not the landlord, who is the victim.
