Your fiancee needs a good criminal defense lawyer. As the other attorneys have said, your questions require a fact-intensive inquiry and analysis and will depend, on large part, on the discovery of information from the state. As far as you are concerned, do not speak with law enforcement without your own legal counsel present. Remember, you do not have to speak to law enforcement at all...ever.See question

It is unclear what you wish to appeal-the juvenile adjudication or your employer's actions. If it is the juvenile adjudication, it is likely much too late to appeal. If it is your employer's action, such an appeal would be timely. You'll need to check your employer's handbook for the process.
I wish you the best.See question

I have a restitution order from a Wall St case in 2000. My wife's house in New Jersey has a lien on it due to my Federal Conviction in 2000. My name is not on the Deed. How do I remove the Lien from her house?
This is a complicated issue. You should speak with your former criminal defense attorney and gather all of the documents concerning the underlying judgment which resulted in the lien. Then you should speak with an experienced civil attorney who is familiar with the federal and state statutes governing judgment liens. Finally, your wife should also seek legal counsel.See question
How secretive are Grand Jury's? Can those people who testify to the jury disclose what they were asked or what they told they grand jury? Are there laws against this? If so what are they and what kind of charges could someone face?
As others have said, the grand jury process is, by its nature, secretive. There is no law prohibiting a witness from discussing their testimony. That being said, obstruction of justice is a serious crime. The witness who discusses their testimony and the individual who seeks the disclosure is that testimony should be very careful.See question
The mail clearly had my name on it and they should've returned to sender, was it illegal for them to do that and how will they be prosecuted?
It is theft. The chance of law enforcement pursuing petit theft charges is small but you should still report it.
You can also bring a civil action in small claims court to recover the $60 value of the card.See question
