TCalfred : The value of the stolen items will determine whether it's a misdemeanor or a felony.

It also varies depending on whether the store chooses to file criminal charges - many will only make a civil demand instead (basically, you pay a fine to the store and agree to not return to the store, and in exchange, the store agrees not to take you to court).

If he pays the civil demand, then the matter will be closed and it won't create a criminal record for him. If he goes to court and is found guilty, then it's something that will follow him permanently. The job market is already tough - employers are being very selective right now. With a theft record, it's going to be really, really hard for him to ever find much employment.

Bomimuccerm : Theft, first degree misdemeanor. 6 months in jail and $1,000.00 fine. Unless what you stole is worth $500.00 or more.

Liaffobilfeli : how to delete a site or content on a site?
My ex gf put all my info & dirty laundry on this forum and every time I search my name its the first thing that comes up in the results. My name is unique so anyone who sees the search results knows its me off the bat.

What do I do? I emailed the admin about 6 months ago but it looks like a page that isn't monitored. It seems like its just gonna be there for years so I am thinking about changing my last name or shortening it. I am going into the law enforcement field so I know somewhere down the road people will start googling my name to see my bio or whatever.

What should I do?

scanrpinteyrocza : Write an angry blog about it in ALL CAPS.

What she did was legal as long as it did not directly cause you financial harm.

TOVONOASSOR : There are companies that you can hire that will sanitize your online records for a fee.

Many professionals (especially lawyers and doctors) keep such companies on retainer to catch negative information and reviews immediately and get them deleted before the information can do any damage.

Enfobendono : It's not defamation if it's true.

Unless she's posting blatant lies about you, then you have no case for defamation (and a pretty weak case for harassment). There are companies you can hire to clean up you online reputation... sometimes they're effective, sometimes they're not.

Usually, once it's online, it's there forever.

xbfreeslotsio : As I've been told my many lawyers eviction laws are a lot different when it pertains to residents in Housing of Urban Development or Rural Development properties in both State (Wis. in this case) as well as Federal. Why are the laws different for low income housing and where do I locate these special circumstance laws in State Statutes and C.F.R.?
