It is a very long story. My civil rights have been violated and I was beaten, tased, tortured, and raped in the jail. Then dosed with, what I believe to be phentenol, and let out on the street and arrested again and then sent to a Crisis Center for evaluation (which I passed). But I asked for a... Read more »

There is usually someone at the police department that will investigate claims.
Someone fraudulently cashed a check I sent to pay my trash bill. The trash company never received it, so they still say I owe the bill. Who is responsible for getting the money - the bank, or the trash company?
answered on Jan 13, 2023
Most likely you.
If someone intercepted a check you wrote to pay a bill and wrongly cashed it, you can legally pursue that person and possibly your own bank as well as the bank that cashed the check.
But you do still owe your trash company and should pay it. This time I recommend... Read more »
They keep telling me it's about ready. The shop I took it to, outsourced the job. I do not even know where all the clock is. Please tell me what to do.

You could consider filing a general sessions claim for breach of contract and return of the clock.
My attorney has not told me anything so how can I have a defense
I know my charges yes however I don't know what evidence is against me or witnesses are against me...

Defendants have no right to discovery at the Sessions level. But you should at least read what is in the Arrest Warrant, as sometimes subpoenas, implied consent forms, fingerprints, etc. are with the Warrant. Might need another attorney.

You may or may not have a Governmental Tort Liability Act/ 18 USC Section 1983 action, as it sounds like you were not charged. But you will need damages, which are capped. Consult with a competent attorney.
Did the creditor win a judgement against anyone with that name at my address or against specifically the person who made the contract. Can I be considered liable for the debt? Do I need to countersue this creditor for the mistake?
answered on Mar 14, 2022
You must hire an attorney. Setting aside such a Judgment will be difficult and will require some very precise pleadings. You will have to go to Court and prove you are not the proper Judgment Debtor. Time is running against you.

An action for Conversion in General Sessions Court might be best option. But it sounds like someone pawned the Title, then repossessed the collateral.

Talk to your Sheriff's Department and ask to speak to an Investigator. Have all the facts ready to disclose the Theft of Property. Remember you are the witness/victim and you will have to testify, but it is the State's Case. When the Charges come up in Court tell the DA you want... Read more »

The account holder will be getting a charge from the Bank. But if you take out more money than you were authorized by the account holder, then that is Theft of Property, which could be a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the amount stolen. You could also be sued by the account holder.
That individual was charged with identity theft and possession of drug paraphernalia. Could that charge be reduced to criminal impersonation?
answered on Nov 27, 2020
It could be but it is likely to be convicted. I suggest that individual get an attorney to fight for that reduction.
Someone passed a stolen check of mine and made a purchase of over $1000 at a Tennessee Walmart in late 2001. I was not aware of this until June 2020 when I was trying to purchase a handgun and was rejected by the TBI. The information I was given is that there is a case against me in the county...

Most importantly, you need to know if it was only a charge, or a conviction. A charge is not a firearm disability although the TBI will not okay your firearm purchase from a FFL. But a conviction, and a felony at that, will be life changing. Hopefully it is only a charge, and a very good... Read more »

If you have an attorney, then tell your attorney. It sounds as if you are in a divorce proceeding and he may have violated the automatic injunction. If you do not have an attorney, get one.

Received what appears to be a parking citation via mail. Neither I, nor my vehicle were anywhere near that city, 3 hours away from me, on the day that the ticket was issued. This appears to have been issued based solely on my license plate number. I called the court office and they said that the... Read more »

Parking Tickets are not Moving Violations of the Rules of the Road. Usually City/County Ordinance or Code violations. That is non-criminal. You can go to Court and contest, or forget about it. It will not generate points but might affect your credit score. I fail to see how this could affect... Read more »

Your question/statement is unclear- If I understand it- No, you are not responsible for a loan if someone forged your signature on it. However, you must prove the forgery ( it may take a handwriting expert). You should report this immediately to local law enforcement- forgery is a crime ( a felony)... Read more »

I am not an attorney licensed in Tennessee so you should consult with a local lawyer. Generally, if there was negligence on the part of the employer that resutled in the ID theft, you may have a cause of action.
