In my experience it sounds like you may have been given a break by the officer. Normally, if you were arrested for OUI he would have taken you back to the station. You may still be charged with operating without a license, but that he a lesser offense than the OUI. Look in the mail over the next couple of weeks to see if you get a summons to Court. If you do, contact an attorney as a conviction could prevent you from getting your license as you had planned.
If you have no criminal record,...
It would depend on whether or not the landlord is accepting your payments as rent or use and occupancy payments. If it is being accepted without reservation, then it can be construed as rent, therefore entering you into a new term of tenancy. If that is the case, the landlord would have to terminate your rights to tenancy again by way of notice to quit. Obtain a copy of your returned cashed checks from your bank - look to see if they have use and occupancy or anything else written on them. That...
The rules of evidence in a small claims action are relaxed. What you might not be able to put before the court in the normal course of a trial, such as text messages and voicemails, are far easier to enter during a small claims case. The more evidence you have the better to win the case. You must prove to a judge/clerk that this money was owed. Ask yourself if an independent person saw the evidence you have - would they believe that the person owes you the money?
There is no hard and fast...
Simple answer - it wholly depends on who wants to use the information. The party who wants to use the ping record to make a point in their case can request the information.
If a defense attorney wants to prove someone wasn't where the police say they were at the time a crime occurred - then they would request it.
Any potential penalty depends entirely on your criminal record. If this is your first offense - then no you are not likely to go to jail. If this is your tenth offense - I would recommend hiring a lawyer. That being aid, no one can predict what any given judge will do based on a unique set of circumstances, any lawyer who guarantees you an outcome should not be trusted.
Go to Court, explain to the prosecutor what happened and if they are seeking jail time obtain counsel - either appointed...
You need to provide more detail as to your situation. An attorney can draft and negotiate a non-disclosure agreement for individuals to sign. As part of the negotiate, a monetary sum can be negotiated. However, no contract is valid, if by its terms it would be a violation of the law.
You information about keeping you safe suggests to me a serious nature of the situation. I suggest you contact an attorney who can provide you with a free consultation to further discuss your issue.
You would face a civil fine. The downside is that it is considered a moving violation and can be used by your auto insurance company to raise your rates. If this happened to you I recommend you appeal the citation. It is worth the fee upfront to try to prevent the added insurance costs, you never know - you might win the appeal.
You should obtain a harassment prevention order from a judge. Doing so would force your employer to take action as they would be legally bound by the court order as well. While at the courthouse speak to a police prosecutor about the potential of criminal charges against this individual. While you do not need an attorney to assist you with any of this, you may want to engage one to help guide you through the process - especially if other employee fights the order.
The only recourse Sears would have against you for shoplifting would be criminal in nature. It sounds like they did not take that route. It would be very difficult for them to do so at a much later date. Even if they were inclined to pursue litigation against you, it would cost them far more than $375 to do so. They are not going to spend the money to do that. But the cost of a stamp in an attempt to scare you and hope you pay them is well worth it for them.
