I would politely contact the court (in person), and simply inquire about the anger management. They may just clear up the issue and solve your problem. Or they may tell you that the magistrate put notes in the file that your boyfriend has to complete some program. If that's the case DO IT.
The classes are easy and if the result is no criminal case, no criminal record, case dismissed. . . it's a win win.
Samuel C. Breslin's answer Possibly - this depends a lot on the type of lawsuit, as well as the ultimate disposition of the criminal case. If he’s acquitted, it will have little impact on a civil case. Feel free to reach out directly if you have further questions. Thanks!
Arthur Calderon's answer Your best bet would be to consult with an attorney so that you can go over the details of your case, and assess whether you have a valid claim that could entitle you to compensation.
Peter Munsing's answer Worst case scenario--you pay him what the car was worth. The big issue is any liability if he drives. If it's just for the title snafu, you third party in your employee if sued. If you have overall liability insurance, then notify your carrier.
However, for starters your employee needs to get the title. If he never had it then........how good an employee is he?
Cary B. Hall's answer Slander is a civil action. You're thinking of harassment, which is a criminal charge.
The person receiving the harassing text messages could certainly contact the police department in Florida in the text messager's neighborhood. Will they do anything? No way to know unless you try - but they may contact the texter and tell him or her to knock it off.
Can't the person receiving simply block the texter's number? That's certainly another option.
Bryan J. Jones' answer If you feel threatened by her, you may be able to get a protective order against her. The requirement to get a protected order is that she has placed you in imminent fear. That may be difficult if the only thing she is threatening is criminal charges. You should also avoid any contact with her.
Kim Jones Penepacker's answer Texas has a one year statute of limitations for defamation under the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code section 16.002. However, the one-year period depends on the date the cause of action "accrued," meaning the date the one-year clock started ticking. You should contact an attorney who practices in this area to evaluate when the clock on the statute of limitations started running and to evaluate if you are still within that time period.
William John Light's answer Call the police. Impersonating a charity may be a crime, although the person may actually have been trying to help you. You don't have a lawsuit. You have not been injured or harmed.
(b) (1) Any person who kidnaps or carries away any individual to commit robbery, rape, spousal rape, oral copulation, sodomy, or any violation of Section 264.1, 288, or 289, shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for life with the possibility of parole.
Gerald Barry Dorfman's answer If there are grounds to file suit, a lawsuit can be filed, naming "Doe" defendants. With the proper foundation, a subpoena can be served on the social media company to reveal the account holder's information. Then the account holder can be added into the lawsuit. Note, a corporation can not appear pro per, but must be represented by an attorney.
Cary B. Hall's answer Truth is an absolute defense for slander/libel charges. But can he still sue you and drag your through the court system? Surely, but you would have a defense to his civil lawsuit against you.
Andy Chen's answer Anyone can sue anyone else for anything. Without knowing what you said, what the author is threatening you with, etc, there is no way to answer the question of what you can or can't do if you are actually sued. It all depends.
