In my opinion, this is a more passive but just as serious type of domestic violence. The same advice goes for you as for a victim of the more active and violent type of domestic violence.

Former coworkers publicly shamed me for my walleye by printing crossed eyed pictures and hanging them in the office.

She told me she was 20 then tried to blackmail me into giving her money saying she'd say I was sexting a minor and to leak my nudes.

If she is really a minor, yes. But this is also a common scam.
An ex-coworker sent me a text message stating people will be going after me after he talks to them and they will beat me, this is after he caused me issues at work by lying to HR and almost getting me fired.

You can do one or both of the following: report the matter to the police, and/or seek a civil protection order.
answered on Apr 7, 2021
This depends on what is happening in Court. Is the hearing an arraignment, pretrial, evidentiary hearing, deposition, trial? You can always contact the victim's advocate at the courthouse and they can go through general information with you.
Best of luck.

You haven't actually asked a question, but I am assuming you want to know why the court granted them bond but kept you under house arrest. The answer to that question is hard to give from so little information. It may be as simple as you have a record and they do not. It may be that they have... Read more »

Truth is an absolute defense in defamation lawsuits. But that doesn't mean he won't sue you and argue some or all of what you've said is untrue so there could still be a hassle.

I recommend your friend consults with an attorney. If the woman did not have any reason to believe he was actually the murderer and claimed that he was, that could be a reckless or intentional misrepresentation on her part.

My nephew said I stole the title to his car and cashed a work check of his. I didn't do this. He accused me of criminal acts; theft and forgery. His parents (my brother & his wife) won't talk to me. I'm devastated over this. Can I file a lawsuit against him for slander?
answered on Oct 28, 2018
You can file a lawsuit against anyone for any reason, whether you will win is a different story. Generally, defamation (slander and libel) require that you prove the things is false, and damaged your reputation costing you money.
answered on Oct 8, 2018
Well...he would need to claim that the statements are false. You can pretty much sue someone over anything, how successful your suit will be depends on the truth and evidence.

That would be a civil claim, not criminal. So you can't file charges. But you can file a lawsuit. Use the Find a Lawyer tab and consult a local attorney who handles litigation.

It's only slander if you file a lawsuit and a court agrees that it is. Do you plan to file a lawsuit? That could be an expensive process, and take months.

It is legal to tell people the truth. It is not a crime. A civil protection order, however, does not actually require a crime. A person may seek court protection without having to prove a crime, if he or she can show a pattern of harassment.
If and when this goes to court, how do i defend against the lies?
