I was caught yesterday stealing from the store where I work.

hi, I was caught yesterday stealing from the store where I work. I have stolen before and upon checking cctv they will probably discover this. I don't have a criminal record and I don't actually know why I've been stealing as I don't need to. I suffer from depression and I think this may be why it all started. what will happen to me?Assistant: Do you have any upcoming court dates on the charges?Customer: No. It was literally yesterday. I'm currently on suspension pending an investigation. The cctv doesn't actually show me stealing, it shows me going into a back area with items and then leaving the store with my bag.Assistant: Where did this occur?Customer: At my workAssistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I need some copyright advice. We are being accused of copyright infringement. We have the same wording on a card (baa f**king humbug) we have very different designs, but both depict a sheep humping a humbug sweet. It is a pure coincidence but they are claiming they own the IP. Can you help?Assistant: Is this about an invention, a design, or an artistic work?Customer: it is for a greeting card. we both run adult greeting card websites.Assistant: Have you talked to a local attorney? Has anything been filed in court?Customer: nothing yet. we have just received an email saying we are stealing their IP.Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I can provide images of both. That is about it. What is the cost for this service?Assistant: The Expert's answer will cost £5 fully-refundable payment for a trial membership. It's way less expensive than face-to-face would cost.

I have recencly came into a problem where someone has conned

Hello, I have recencly came into a problem where someone has conned me on multiple occasions. However this may be a problem because it was drugs that I was buying off him in the first place. I confronted this person politely in text to ask if he could explain but there was no answer:Assistant: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I visitied the friends house asking too please open the door so we can get through this by him talking like a man, however he did not answer this door. However, then I revceived very threating teexts from his mother telling me that she knows where I live and that he is waiting outside my house I did the right thing and told her that I was not going outside but she was free to try make it through the 4 passcode doors and the security guard to get to me. However, now this woman is accusing me of harrasing her even though this is the first convorsation I have ever had with her when I pointed out that she was in the wrong and that she was harrasing me and coming to my house (even telling me that she knew the next location I was moving to and that she would see me soon) Then she provided to tell me false information that I have met her before, and bullied her and that she has witnesses that I have harmed her and she has marks but I know that this is not true as I have never met the woman before in my life I was wandering how I would go about this situation as I am very scared that she may try and file a law suit to get around her original harrasment message to me, threatening to come to where I lived I am based in Wales UKAssistant: What steps have you taken so far?Customer: I have sent a message outlying her faults, explaining that this is the first convorsation that I have met with her. She accused me of bullying (in the previous time where I had not actually met her) however in the text messages, she refered to me as a fat waster. At any point in this convorsation with this woman I did not make any negative remarks, I only pointed out that the accusations she was making were false. However once I did this, she replied with "Stop harrassing me" However, It was her that sent the original harrasing email threatening to come to where I live in the near futureAssistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I did knock on my friends door politely this morning to talk to him as a friend to see what he said on the matter, but he instantly ignored this and turned defensive.

My brothers have accused me of stealing my mum's money. This

Hi, my brothers have accused me of stealing my mum's money. This was investigated by the police and and sent to CPS twice. On both occasions no actions to be taken. They put this on facebook for all my friends to see. It has been horrendous. It has made me and my family ill. I became a recluse. I have suffered with deep depression and anxiety. My mum has since died. She was disgusted with them. Can I claim defirmation of character? I am 57 by the way. Dawn.Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?Customer: No. I am only just feeling strong again.Assistant: Family Court normally sits in a local County and Magistrates' Court. Do you know the location of the court?
