I agree with the other lawyers who have answered your question. This is a very serious case and, even if handled very carefully, a conviction is possible based on the complainant's story alone. You should not discuss any more of the facts on the internet. You should consult an attorney by telephone and/or in person.See question

As part of the discovery process in the case, you will receive a copy of the warrant and are entitled to receive a copy of the post-search inventory report, among other things. You can also file motions relating to the basis for the warrant and it's execution.See question
if u beat an state drug conspericy charge can the feds pick it up after u win in court
Yes, it is possible for the federal government to charge a person for a similar crime, even if the person was already charged by a state government and was either convicted or acquitted. Michael Vick, for example, was prosecuted by both the state and federal governments. He pleaded guilty in both cases, but it would have been possible for him (in theory) to go to trial in the state case, win an acquittal, and still be prosecuted by the federal government.See question
Someone I know was arrested today for a Federal Criminal drug related case. Wire tapping and surveillance was involved for the last 3 year. The search warrant on the house stated District Court Eastern Division.
The easiest way to accomplish this is to contact the Clerk's Office at the likely court house for the arraignment or search for the person's name on the Pacer system. Just because a person has been arrested in one federal district, however, does not mean that the case will be brought in that district. Therefore, it's possible that the person will be brought to another court house for arraignment.See question

It is critical that you consult with a criminal defense attorney. It is also critical that you consult an immigration attorney, or that your criminal defense attorney do so. As the prior posting indicates, "theft" charges can have dramatic collateral consequences for a person's immigration status. If you'd like to research more information about this on your own to understand how important it is to consult a qualified attorney, you should visit the Immigrant Defense Project's (a New York organization) website.See question
Received a Plea for 242.20 and Paid a Surcharge. The judge didn't mention that sealing be waived and such information isn't on the Certificate of Disposition. Would it be on a Certificate of Disposition if I waived it? From what I understand, I h...
Usually the sealing of a 240.20 disposition is automatic after a year, pursuant to Criminal Procedure Law 160.55. In fact, if a 240.20 will not be sealed, then at least one judge has ruled that you must be advised of this possibility at the sentencing or you have a right to withdraw your plea. In a case in Watertown, New York, a judge ruled the following:
"For a defendant to have a full understanding of the consequences of a plea, defendant must be informed by the trial court upon a plea to a violation that the statutory right to have the record in other agencies sealed outside the local criminal court, while usually automatic, can nonetheless be not sealed should the Court decide that the 'interests of justice' prohibit the sealing."
