Used to use a dating app, matched with someone who wanted to text right away. Didn't think much of it, first thing they did was send a very pixelated lewd photo. Well couple hours later I get a call from someone claiming to be the father and saying the girl was actually 16. I never sent... Read more »

Although I can’t comment on the specifics of any particular matter here, generally what you describe sounds like a scam to extort you.

You have not identified the crime, however even if you had, the answer is going to be that it depends on what the evidence will show.
Communication has been expressly limited to TalkingParents.com between my ex husband and myself. I have the records available to me for evidence, and he uses TalkingParents for this communication.

If there is a court order limiting communication to TalkingParents, he may be in violation of the court order. If so, you could consider citing him for contempt. You should get a lawyer to help you.

Sorry but if you currently have a lawyer, you should not be discussing your case specifics with other lawyers and definitely not online. I suggest you set a meeting with your public defender and address these concerns with him/her.
He has tried forcing himself on several employees while we are at work. He is generally intoxicated. There are several females involved and a few are willing to come forward. He was an ex-police officer. He has a lot of family in law enforcement.

She will sign a contract that I made saying what we will have sexual contact on this date and then she signs her name. Can I still be in trouble if I have written consent?
answered on Jan 25, 2018
First of all, contracts for sex are generally illegal and unenforceable. I would not recommend doing that at all. Second, if you have to ask the question, then you probably already know the answer...

Every day I go to work, my boss always slaps my rear, motions like he is going to grab my breasts, rubs up against me, licks his lips like he is licking me in private areas, moans, whistles, and makes sexual comments.

Contact a lawyer that handles employment law. Your boss' actions are inexcusable and you should not have to put up with his behavior. If you file suit, you are also protected against retaliation (i.e. firing or demotion). Talking to a lawyer will also allow you to follow any helpful actions... Read more »
So the parent says they will put whoever has sex with their daughter in jail but once the daughter turns 17 which is the legal age of consent in colorado can they still do that?
answered on Sep 8, 2017
As far as statutory rape goes, you are correct that at 17 inability to consent (due to age) is waived. With the 2 year age gap, there would also be additional safe harbor provisions related to statutory rape in Colorado.
Statutory rape is not the only issue. Parents have been known to... Read more »

At minimum, this would likely be harassment. Whether other criminal charges are a possibility is based on the facts of the case (i.e. the police and DA would need to review all the specifics). Contact your local police to report a crime.
answered on Jun 29, 2017
This is a very fact-specific matter, but the general rule is that Colorado does NOT consider an intoxicated person capable of consenting to sex. This can occur whether or not the accused actively participated/encouraged/facilitated the intoxication of the victim or not.
The only evidence he has is an e-mail he sent to a therapist and a couple visits. Would this be enough to be the police to actively investigate? More importantly, would this be enough for the persecutors to move forward in the case? He's been through a lot (suicide attempt) and to have him be... Read more »

Only the police and DA can make a determination to proceed with charges/investigate or not. There is not enough information to make a determination. Even if there was enough information, a private attorney cannot force a prosecution/investigation.
Basically my manager is on the clock while he sits outside the store on a swing chair with multiple women. He is a married man and I just find this behavior very creepy and uncomfortable. He spends more time outside the store flirting with these women than actually working.

Sexual harassment is contingent on upon you receiving the harassment. That is, sexual harassment does not generally occur when others are harassed. There are a few common law holdovers that allow emotional distress to related parties (which is also contingent on physical harm to a related party),... Read more »

Contact a personal injury lawyer or a medical malpractice lawyer. The lawyer can review your physical injury and assess the actionably of the HIPPA violation. The attorney can also handle collection of the co-pay amounts that should be returned.
Civilian victim or rape by a military officer on military property. Defendant killed himself 3 weeks prior to trial so military is dismissing all charges. Can I ask the military to pay for my PTSD treatment and missed work?
answered on Jan 26, 2017
You will need to contact an attorney directly to see if there is a possibility. The chances are likely remote. First there is the issue of sovereign immunity and second you would need to show how the base/military assisted or fascinated the crime.
