    Answered . He may be able to sue you for slander and libel. Since you are underage, the suit would also be against your parents. The good news is that "truth" is an absolute defense against such a lawsuit. The bad news is that he is powerful and may be able to prevent you from showing what is really the truth. I agree with the above attorney that you need to discuss this with your parents. Your actions may get them in trouble as well.

    The choice of an attorney is an important decision and should not be based on advertisements alone. This response... more

    Answered . sorry for all that is going on. you need to speak with your parents about this. re whether he can sue you, it doesn't sound like it would be wise for him to do so but you should not post anything else naming him and if you can remove it from your facebook page you ought to. what is done is done but you don't need to inflame the situation. good luck and god bless your family.
