Based on the details provided, it is unlikely the joint venture partner you had a verbal agreement with has grounds to sue you for breach of contract or threaten legal action since nothing was formalized in writing:

Due to the mental health of the respondent there is a significant likelihood that the person would be violent or use traumatizing language as well as appeal in hopes of spending more legitimate time with the victims.
In most counties, there are victim / witness services coordinators that can help address these concerns. A victim's right to be protected is sometimes in conflict with an accused' right to confront witnesses. But there are ways. And importantly, judges have contempt powers that can be...View More

Possibly. When you are the defendant, you are on trial for your actions. There are cases when the other person's actions may present a defense - and that may be the case with you, but that is something you'll need to discuss with a lawyer.
This is an "in the eye of the beholder" situation - provided that you are not using work resources. However, relationships and feelings change, and it's generally best to keep personal and work life separate.
Too many unanswered questions to give you an adequate answer. And you shouldn't give more details on a public forum like this. For now, just know that what could or will happen depends on the nature of the sexual touching.
I was in recovery single father-pharmacist, with documented history of substance abuse. My nurse practioner pursued me and had sexual relationship with me for years. She insisted on becoming my daughters PcP as well. Under her care I had relapsed and reported to state hprp and legal probation. My... View More
You may have a medical malpractice case. A big issue as to when this occurred. An experienced attorney needs to evaluate your case as if it is within the time limit to sue. Even if you have no case, it can be reported to the board that licenses her.
I had a sexual assault case that ended in my abuser taking a gulity plea, and i ended up making a facebook post with my abusers name. Are they able to sue me for defamation or anything because of this?
I came forward about sexual harassment towards me AND two of my coworkers. It was “handled” by forcing a store transfer on me without any consultation or any warning, the day of I was told “you work here now”. I lost working at my location... View More
A little bit more detail is needed. If the transfer can be seen as a demotion-- maybe because it is in a worse location, has worse hours or constitutes a pay cut-- you may have a case that your employer retaliated against you for coming forward about the sexual harassment. Consult with an...View More

First, be mindful that there are a lot of telephone scams going around claiming to be from law enforcement, and ultimately demanding money or personal information. If the person left a name and a phone number, contact the police department to see if it's legit. If it is, tell them you'll...View More
The inappropriate images are not pictures of themselves but pornographic images of others, they send it in the groupchat and the girl who is 14 years old sees all of it but she also engages in the activity and sends in pictures as well.
If the images are of adults, then possibly it's a case of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Not sure if police or prosecutors will do much if it is an otherwise innocuous group chat that the 14 year old is voluntarily participating in. Obviously if the 14 year old were sending images...View More
