Person illegally sublet a space to me, the owner showed up to property that's how we found out it was done illegally. Now how do I go about filing criminal charges and civil charges to get back my $10,000
As an alternative to Mr. Ness's suggestion, you may want to consider contacting the State's Attorney's Office in your jurisdiction to speak with a representative of that Office's felony review or investigation's division. Whlle you can certainly visit a court commissioner to outline the probable cause necessary for an initial charge to issue, an investigation division is more likely to debrief you on the facts and provide guidance concerning the propriety of pursuing a criminal charge. That office can decide to collect evidence in advance of issuing a formal charge out of that office or via a grand jury indictment. Fraud in the amount of $10,000 is likely to garner the attention of a local prosecutor's office to determine if criminal charges lie. On the civil side, you'll have to retain an attorney to review evidence that the State might be willing to help you accumulate - at no initial cost to you!See question

Myself and 3 of my kids are sick with a nasty cold.
There is no magic language necessary to write to a judge concerning modification of one's sentence - provided it is submitted within the applicable period of time for such matters, but I have reservations concerning success in obtaining the relief you seek, given the basis for your request and the practical timing by which a written letter would find its way to your sentencing judge and the problem you describe.See question
I was pulled over this morning for speeding, at one point the officer said i was going 90 mph in a 60 mph zone. He didn't ask for my license or registration but just said pay more attention to the speed limit and have a good day and then walked a...

In the state of Maryland there is a certified judicial search engine that operates similar such of social media. It's open to the public that tells a persons involvment, Proceedings, dispositions and ALL dockets with a case guilty or not guilty or...
In answer to the question you posed, a public defender is not a "civil" attorney and defends persons of financial need in criminal court. Civil lawyers handle cases that involve monetary damages or other forms of relief that are unrelated to "convictions" or violations of criminal laws. Concerning Maryland's Judiciary Case Search, it is true that the public has access to court records, including the dispositions in criminal cases. However, acquittals and not guilty findings are included in such dispositions, so the search of a criminal case will include reference to those findings, as well as convictions, PBJ's, stets, etc. While it is true that one must pay a filing fee for a case expungement, one who actually searches public records for purposes of background checks will hopefully examine the entirety of a case's record to confirm that a mere allegation against someone in a criminal case resulted in dismissal or acquittal - dispositions that should not adversely affect one's employment. Presumably, an employment application would make inquiry whether one was ever convicted of a crime - and the answer to such a question, if misrepresented, would result either in one's not receiving a job offer or facing termination after-the-fact for dishonesty.See question
I was driving down a hill right before a mph change from a 45mph zone to a 55mph zone. I got pulled over doing 54mph in a 45mph zone. The cop was on the opposite side of the road and turned around. I was keeping up with the flow of traffic. The of...
In addition to my colleagues answers, you should be aware that even if you receive a notice of suspension from the MVA in the event you cannot achieve a dismissal or acquittal, you do have the right to "show cause" in an administrative hearing, why your license should be suspended and the impending suspension modified for limited specific circumstances, like driving to school or work.See question
I was involved in a collision with the barrier on the interstate in Maryland. There are no available witness, and the statements I made to the police officer were that I was going at or near the speed limit and my rear wheels must have hit a sli...
failure to control one's speed is an element to the offense; in the absence of any evidence concerning your speed - and no evidence concerning how or under what circumstances you lost control of your vehicle, a valid defense to the charge, separate and apart from what you struck - another element of the State's proof, appears to exist.See question
I've already asked this question but I forgot some minor details. I was subpoenaed to court for witnessing a petty theft, I am the one who called the police. I appeared but I was about 10 mins late, not even. As I am walking into the court room, t...
I agree with my colleagues that nothing can be predicted with certainty. However, I believe it improbable that there will be any negative consequences concerning your late appearance. If you witnessed the alleged theft and were the victim as well, , the State likely determined that you cared too little to appear and dismissed the case for insufficient evidence.See question
Mid December last year I was rear ended by a hit and run driver who fled the scene after the accident. As he was fleeing I was able to capture his license plate number and called 911 and he was stopped a couple of minutes down the street. My car s...
Your driving record has no bearing on the impending proceedings, which were filed against the responsible driver. However, if you do not abide by your summons and appear in court as required, it is possible the resonsible driver could escape prosecution for the hit and run, since your testimony could prove essential to material facts the State needs to prove that charge. Additionally, since the charges against the responsible driver carry maximum penalties of jail time, the case will be handled by an Assistant State's Attorney in the jurisdiction where the incident occurred. Typically, victims (you) in such cases are contacted in advance by the ASA or a staff member of the ASA's office to discuss the case, your observations, etc. The ASA would be responsible for preparing your testimony, if required, notifying you if some plea agreement has been struck to excuse your appearance, etc. However, you should not ignore your summons, which is a court order to appear on the date and time indicated. Remember, you are the "victim" in the State's case and your interests should be protected by the ASA assigned to prosecute the matter.See question

Nothing. A warning is not a citation requiring either the payment of a fine or court appearance.See question
